Weekend Movie Preview — Five Flicks in Five Clicks (PHOTOS)

Big wins during awards season always buoys interest in films that audiences might otherwise miss -- and the combination of the Oscar nominations last Thursday and the Golden Globes ceremony last Sunday was no  exception: Silver Linings Playbook saw a massive spike in ticket sales thanks to Jennifer Lawrence's Best Actress nomination and win, respectively, while Zero Dark Thirty won its first wide-release weekend after Jessica Chastain accomplished the same.

Meanwhile, new releases continue to trickle out of Hollywood with reassuring regularity, offering a broad variety of films for moviegoers to choose from, whether they're looking for serious, silly or scary fare.

Which is why Five Flicks in Five Clicks exists: to give readers a quick overview of the weekend's highest-profile films as they're heading to the multiplex.
