It’s a big weekend at the box office! Now is the perfect time to take a break from all the holiday shopping, kick up your feet and take in the magic of the movies. Today, two of this year’s most-talked about films are opening in theaters everywhere and we have two reasons why you shouldn’t miss them. Scroll down to find out why you need to buy a ticket for Hours or American Hustle. 

Watch the Late Paul Walker’s Thrilling Film: Hours 
Before Paul Walker’s untimely death, he filmed a harrowing movie about Hurricane Katrina, playing a much different character than Fast & Furious’ Brian O’Conner. This time he plays a new father and after his wife (Genesis Rodriguez) passed away after going into labor five weeks early, his premature daughter is placed on a ventilator. But once Hurricane Katrina starts to flood the hospital, Walker is the only one who can save his daughter’s life with no doctors or power to help keep the ventilator running.

See the Movie Everyone is Buzzing About: American Hustle 
This David O. Russell film has a packed roster of Hollywood heavy-hitters— including Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, Amy Adams, and Christian Bale—and is already nominated for seven Golden Globes nominations for Best Motion Picture and nods for Best lead and supporting roles. The film is based on con-artist Irving Rosenfeld (Bale) who ends up working alongside FBI agent (Cooper) to catch a few white-collar criminals. Plus it’s filled with fantastic ’70s-inspired clothing and hairdos!
