HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Easter weekend brought some much anticipated movies to the box office sure to please all audiences. From an action-packed comic book movie pitting two well-known heroes against each other to a sequel of an early 2000's independent romantic comedy, people might be bringing their Easter goodies to the theater with them.

While a lot of DC heroes have been getting their own television series, fans have had to wait nearly three years for a theatrical release. "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" takes a darker look at super hero movies, along the lines of "The Dark Knight" trilogy. While critics gave the film bad reviews, fans are praising the film. So just keep an open mind for anyone going to check it out.

"My Big Fat Greek Wedding" spoke to anyone who had ever brought a significant home to meet his or her crazy family. The Portokalos family is back in "My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2," and now the main couple has a daughter having to go through all of the same things as the first movie. All of the original characters are back, including the Windex.
