See what The Hollywood Reporter's critics have to say about those films -- and others opening this weekend -- and find out how they're expected to perform at the weekend box office.
X-Men: First Class
Bottom Line: A first-class production that excitingly reenergizes a flagging franchise.
Bottom Line: A smart screenplay and captivating visual devices deliver genuine emotions in "Beginners."
Bottom Line: Despite the bouts of finger-pointing and self-blame, the faint suggestion remains that the tragedy still could end up bringing them closer together.
Bottom Line: Like most of Jean-Luc Godard's other essay films, is all over the place and (purposely) impossible to follow.
Love Wedding Marriage
Bottom Line: An annulment is in order.
Rejoice and Shout
Bottom Line: A splendid if exhausting journey through the history of gospel music reaching back nearly two centuries.
