It’s the time of year when Oscar hopeful movies start appearing in theaters. Are you looking for something to do this weekend? Here are some of the movies opening in the U.S. this weekend. Will you go see any of them?

From US Today:

Ron Howard’s In the Heart of Sea has plenty of drama aboard and unleashes the most fearsome seabound villain this starboard side of Jaws. The Oscar-winning director’s adaptation of Nathaniel Philbrick’s novel features Chris Hemsworth, Cillian Murphy and Brendan Gleeson, among others. It’s whale of a tale that’s equal parts thriller and disaster film.

In Legend Tom Hardy tackles the long-lauded tradition of playing twins in a biopic that explores the lives of infamous London mobsters, Ronald and Reginald Kray. The pair gained notoriety in the 1950s and 1960s for their criminal antics, which ranged from arson to murder, and their extravagant lifestyle as nightclub owners who regularly brushed shoulders with Hollywood’s elite, including Judy Garland and Frank Sinatra.
