There are five major cinema releases in U.S. theaters this week, and we have all the details for you.

2023 was a massive year for cinema, with the summer period flourishing thanks to the releases of Barbie and Oppenheimer. The movies were released around the same time and many theater-goers actually did the double-feature, which was affectionately named 'Barbenheimer'.

Barbie became the most successful movie ever directed by a solo female director, earning $1.44 billion at the box office, while Oppenheimer made $953m. No pressure for the movies that follow, in 2024, then...
