UAE movie buffs... Here's what to watch this Eid holidays

It just doesn’t get better than this, does it? Two superheroes, one of the costumed Hollywood breed and the other from the Bollywood terrain, are all set to enthral you with their antics.

While it would be tough to determine who’d walk away with the crown in the UAE, we are confident that ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ and ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ will take on a huge chunk of the movie magic this festive weekend.

Riding close behind is the animated movie ‘Brave’ that clocks the magical adventures of Princess Merida as she defies the customs and puts her archery skills to test.

There’s even the infamous beefy, bunch of ‘The Expendables2’ who are sure to knock-us down with their kicks and blows.

All in all, it’s good to be an action-packed outing at the cinemas.
