It looks like it's going to be an exciting weekend for three new movies opening today. There's a lot of variety and almost something for everyone. It's hard to say which film will take the top spot at the box office, as the popular 'Scream' franchise returns with its fourth installment against the animated feature 'Rio,' which looks like it could appeal to kids and adults. Also opening: the Robert Redford-directed historical drama 'The Conspirator.'

If you're feeling bummed about your taxes, these are some nice movie choices to keep you distracted. Take a look at their trailers, as well as some other films that are still in theaters, after the jump.
