In what has ironically turned out to be the franchise that just won’t die, ‘Final Destination 5′ opens in theaters Friday, promising more gore, more violence and, yes, more death.

If you’re sick of the franchise, or if you just prefer something lighter, there are two comedies brand-new to choose from this weekend. One is the R-Rated ’30 Minutes or Less,’ which re-teams Oscar-nominated actor Jesse Eisenberg (‘The Social Network’) with his ‘Zombieland’ director, Ruben Fleischer, in this flick about a bank robbery gone horribly wrong.

Or, if you’re feeling a bit more musically inclined, there’s always ‘Glee Live! 3-D!’, the latest incarnation from Fox’s uber-successful TV series.

Of course, if you can’t wait until Friday to see a new movie, you’re in luck: Opening Wednesday is ‘The Help.’ Based on the best-selling novel by Kathryn Stockett, it stars Emma stone as a young writer who, with the help of the maids in her Mississippi town, writes an expose on the awful ways in which the maids are treated by their white employees.
