This weekend at the box office there's something for everyone to enjoy.

In Matt Damon's latest film, "Elysium," the haves and the have-nots are on two separate worlds. In order to save Earth, he must go to the wealthy space station of the elite, known as Elysium.

If you're taking kids to the movies this weekend, check out "Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters." The second movie in the four-part series, demigods head to the Bermuda Triangle.

Also good for kids this weekend, the little plane that could. In Disney's latest movie, "Planes," a crop duster plane hopes to compete in an around-the-world race. But first, he must overcome his fear of heights.

Casey Messer, host of The Reelz Show, gives you a preview of what's hot at the box office this weekend.
