Moviegoers have several options to choose from this weekend.
On Friday, the X-Men are back in the prequel X-Men: First Class, this time starring James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence and January Jones.
Meanwhile, Christopher Plummer and Ewan McGregor star as father and son in the Mike Mills-directed film Beginners.
Mandy Moore and Kellan Lutz star in Dermot Mulroney‘s directorial debut, Love Wedding Marriage, a romantic comedy about a psychologist who tries to save her parents’ marriage.
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.
