This weekend is going to be a busy one at the box office, with a great selection of wide and limited releases opening today. The highly anticipated Noah is finally hitting the big screen, and this biblical drama boasts an impressive ensemble cast. Russell Crowe, Jennifer Connelly, Emma Watson and Anthony Hopkins join forces in this spectacular film about the disastrous flood that forced Noah to build an unprecedented ark in order to save his family and the animal kingdom. Another film opening wide today is Jason Bateman‘s Bad Words, a hilarious story about a high school dropout who joins a group of kids in a national spelling bee.
