This is the season for blockbusters and movies, and we couldn’t be happier. It started off with Lara Croft: Tomb Raider starring Alicia Vikander that premiered the beginning of March. This week, it’s Pacific Rim: Uprising with more giant monsters fighting giant robots. Next week, the film adaptation of Ready Player One, courtesy of the legendary director Steven Spielberg, hits the big screen. For action film buffs, it’s as though Christmas came in March.

Perhaps it’s the post-Oscars fever that encourages all the releases to be around the same period. That way, moviegoers will never be bored. Coming up soon in April, we’re getting the biggest instalment of the Marvel Universe’s flagship, Avengers: Infinity War. Meanwhile, Star Wars fans will love May for the release of Han Solo’s solo film (pun intended). All those films are guaranteed fodder for your weekends or a movie date with your partner.

But if you don’t want to subject yourself to sitting in a dark room with strangers for two hours, why not spend your weekend reading some of our best stories of this week instead? Keep scrolling for more.
