Weekend Movie Preview: April 1, 2011

by at . Comments

This weekend, three movies hit theaters nationwide - and they couldn't be more different.  There's Insidious, a horror flick about a possessed child, Hop the Easter Bunny comedy, and Source Code, the government thriller about body morphing.

Source Code has received some great early reviews and is doing much better than the other films so far, but Hop will likely take the big prize of the weekend.

It's the Easter season and everybody loves a family friendly comedy about the lovable bunny.  Hop will likely bring in close to $30 million this weekend, with Source Code raking in about half that. 

Insidious will have a smaller audience and likely lose out to a couple of popular stragglers like Limitless or even Sucker Punch.

Check out the films coming out today after the jump.

Hop: Fred O'Hare, played by James Marsden, hits the easter bunny with his car.  He now must take in the bunny as he heals, but quickly learns the easter bunny is not the greatest house guest.

Source Code: A sci-fi story centered on a soldier who wakes up in the body of a commuter who witnesses a train explosion.  He is part of a new government program and must find the bomber before he hits again.
Insidious: A family that discovers their comatose boy is the housing unit for a bunch of evil entities.  The boy, meanwhile, is trapped in a dark realm known as "The Further."
Also out today in limited release is the David Schwimmer film Trust.
Trust: Trust follows a young girl who is targeted by an online predator who pretends to be a teenage boy across the country.  The two meet and the girl's life turns upside down.
