It's a battle of the remakes!

That's right, two of this weekend's big box office releases are remakes of classic '80s flicks. First up is Colin Farrell as a sexy (but evil!) vampire in Fright Night. Based on the cult horror film of the same name, Colin plays a baddie vamp who moves in next store to a teenager (Star Trek's Anton Yelchin) and reeks havoc on his town.

Next up, Game of Throne star Jason Momoa takes on a role made famous by Arnold Schwarzenegger.

It's taken awhile for this one to get released, but Conan the Barbarian will finally hit the big screen on Friday. According to IMDB, the film (which is sure to have some epic battle sequences) is about "Conan the Cimmerian and his adventures across the continent of Hyboria on a quest to avenge the murder of his father and the slaughter of his village."

Let's not forget about the other two films being released this weekend!

Anne Hathaway and the positively adorable Jim Sturgess (who you probably remember from Across the Universe) play friends (with a bit of romantic tension) who promise to meet up one day every year, and the film chronicles them over the course of 20 years. Check out the trailer for One Day below!

 

On the more kid-friendly side, Spy Kids is back with Spy Kids 4: All the Time in the World, where a new generation of Spy Kids are born. It stars Jessica Alba, Joel McHale and Jeremy Piven. Check out the trailer below!

So, which flick will you be seeing at the multiplex this weekend? Sound off in the poll!

    It is unfortunate that 5 Days of War is only getting a limited release in the U.S. and has already gone straight to DVD here in the UK. It has Renny Harlin directing and a stellar cast – Rupert Friend, Val Kilmer, Andy Garcia, Dean Cain, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Heather Graham, Antje Traue, Rade Serbedzija. It would have been interesting to see how it would have done commercially if released nationwide.
