Weekend movie trail

We guide you which one to give the boot and which ones merit a trip to the cinemas

With the amazing “new” Spidey swinging past this weekend, with an all-new star, villain, and a sharper take on how it all started, the cinemas are going to be chock-a-block with fans of the red-and-blue costumed superhero. If reports from India, where it released a week earlier, are anything to go by, Andrew Garfield is far more superior in playing the swinging superhero than his predecessor Tobey Maguire.
 
Of the other three films that will make their debut this weekend, Bollywood’s ‘Bol Bachchan’ does stand out, only because its being advertised as a fun spin on yesteryear’s iconic comedy ‘Golmaal’. Let’s just hope Rohit Shetty is capable of turning this Abhishek Bachchan-Ajay Devgn starrer into super-successful film just like the original. Well, we wouldn’t endorse it until we witnessed it ourselves.
 
While distasteful horror flicks like ‘Transit’ might frighten away the crowd, Luc Besson’s epic ‘The Lady’, that retraces the journey of Aung San Suu Kyi, should emerge a winner. The biography, we believe, will be a great lesson in history.
