The spirit of adventure is strong for this weekend's slate of releases. We begin with the nostalgic and beautiful 1950s-era actioner about Thor Heyerdahl and his raft voyage across the Pacific Ocean -- exploring, so exciting! But there are also expeditions of a tamer, more modern sort. Michael Bay will be returning to the silver screen with loud music and 'roided-up robbers. Matthew McConaughey gets a boat stuck in a tree. An assassin must expose corrupt American government officials and rescue a pretty CIA analyst, set to the tune of flying bullets and explosions (oddly, Bay didn't direct this one). Also, a young couple embarking on the age-old expedition of marriage. So cinephiles, if you're feeling daring -- lace up those boots, mark out the route, pack your GORP and let us know in the comments how you plan to spend your weekend in Adventureland.
