The weekend includes a selection of movies that will keep the whole family amused, including thepetrol-head sequel Fast & Furious, the adaptation of popular rom-com novel Confessions of a Shopaholic, buddy comedy Role Models, and the animated adventure featuring John Travolta voicing a dog who thinks he’s a superhero in Bolt.
And for those of you watching in HD, you can see all the movies showing in the Free Weekend in ridiculously sumptuous detail.
