Welcome back it is another Friday morning and I am preparing myself for what lies ahead in the cinemas for me. I am a little excited this weekend as one of my favourite directors, Ben Affleck, has a film hitting screens today. As well as his film we have another Kevin James comedy and Chris Pine pops up in his second film of the year. A few to pick from this week and unlike last week there are actually a few that I would be up for seeing. Take a look below at what films are hitting screens and see which one takes your liking.
1. Ben Affleck has made a name for himself over the last few years due to providing some excellent direction in some excellent films. As well as that he has also been starring in them and performing pretty well. This week sees his third directorial film ARGO which is the title of a fake movie Ben's CIA agent has concocted so he and his team can enter Iran and extract six American diplomats held captive. Also starring: Bryan Cranston, John Goodman, & Alan Arkin. Will the fake movie be a hit?
2. Kevin James returns, after lending his voice to Hotel Transylvania, in HERE COMES THE BOOM. James plays a teacher who takes up cage fighting in order to raise enough money to save his school from being closed down. Problem is he's a teacher and what does he know about mixed martial arts? Also starring: Salma Hayek, Henry Winkler, & Greg Germann. Will he see it before it hits him?

6. Last and certainly not least is THE SAPPHIRES, a new comedy drama starring Chris O'Dowd as the manager for four talented Australian Aboriginal young girls who are part of the girl group The Sapphires.
