Big Screen – this week’s top ten at the cinema…

  1. Paranormal Activity 2
  2. Fright night… The supernatural prequel to Oren Peli’s wildly successful 2009 chiller sees a family terrorised by sinister goings-on in their home. It’s like the first, only with some more people.


  3. Despicable Me
  4. Melt in the middle… Steve Carell voices the character of Gru in this family animation about a supervillain whose encounter with three orphaned girls (eventually) melts his cold heart.

  5. Red
  6. Back in action… Bruce Willis heads a cast that includes Morgan Freeman, John Malkovich and Helen Mirren in this action-comedy about old people with guns.

  7. The Social Network
  8. Status update… David Fincher (Se7en, Fight Club) helms this drama about the trials and tribulations of the founding of Facebook.

  9. Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole
  10. Hooters… Zack Snyder (Watchmen, 300) directs this beautifully animated fantasy adventure in which a young owl goes in search of good owls to battle bad owls.

  11. Alpha and Omega
  12. Howlers… This animated adventure follows two wolves (voiced by Justin Long and Hayden Panettiere) at opposite ends of their pack’s social order, who must find their way home together after being snatched by a ranger.

  13. Vampires Suck
  14. Pain in the neck… The team behind Hollywood spoofs Disaster Movie and Meet the Spartans turn their attention to the Twilight films in this poorly-received pastiche.

  15. Easy A
  16. Class act… Emma Stone (who’s set to play Peter Parker’s love interest in the forthcoming reboot of the Spider-Man film franchise) stars as a high school student who uses the rumour mill to advance her social standing in this teen comedy.

  17. Life As We Know It
  18. Baby love… Katherine Heigl and Josh Duhamel play a mismatched pair of singletons forced together to care for the children of their recently deceased mutual best friends. It’s a romcom.

  19. Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps
  20. Credit crunch… Disgraced corporate raider Gordon Gekko (Michael Gekko) joins forces with a young financial trader (Shia LaBeouf) in a bid to prevent an impending economic disaster in this Wall Street drama.
