Super 8Ready to feel like a kid again? Opening in Wide Release this weekend is the highly anticipated JJ Abrams/Steven Speilberg flick Super 8, about aliens taking over a small town in the summer of 1979 after a catastrophic train crash.

I’ve already bought my ticket. But if you want to see what other movies are opening this weekend. Find out… after the jump!

Along with Super 8, starring mostly unknown actors (not for long!), there’s a more kid friendly flick that also looks super cute.

Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer – A bummed-out third-grader’s boring summer takes an unexpectedly adventurous turn when her Aunt Opal comes to visit. Did I mention that Aunt Opal is the super hot Hangover star, Heather Graham? Might be fun for the whole family now, no?!

That’s it for major releases. Check out the Top Ten below if you need to play catch up!
