It's not always easy to decide what movie to watch!

As we approach the weekend, movies we have been waiting for have finally premiered. Popdust's top picks this week. Birth of the Dragon gives us an account of Bruce Lee before he was famous actor. He seems to be more of a street fighter than a master, but he has a face-off with a ku fu master that catapulted him into a legendary status. All Saints is an inspirational film about faith and how a closing church keeps it's doors open by turning the pasture of land the church owns into a farm with the help of some refugees. Leap! not only tempts fate, but is a new animated movie that shows 2 dreamers follow their callings, to be a dancer and an inventor, set in the backdrop of Paris, when the Eiffel Tower was constructed. Ghost House bundles up all my fears and contains them in a little house in Thailand. Tip: you would be better off not touching anything. The Villainess is the Korean Le Femme Nikita mixed with a little bit of Old Boy. Korean cinema produces such great work. This could be the best pick this week. The trailer is insane! There some great films, so check out the Popdust top five movie trailers. Then peep the full listing of releases to come out this weekend.
