It is going to be a quiet weekend as far as new releases are concerned.
All major films in Tamil and Hindi are releasing only on Diwali day (November 13). There is also feeling in the trade that everybody will be going out for Diwali shopping and has no time for movies.
Traditionally big films release on Diwali day, so Vijay's Thuppakki and STR's Podaa Podi will hit the screens on November 13.
Meanwhile a small Tamil film Ajantha which has been years in the making is releasing today.
The English releases are two animation films - Top Cat and Wreck-It-Ralph and the action packed Nicolas Cage starer Stolen.
The old Hindi film Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro is being re-released in select multiplexes. Nagarjuna's Telugu starer Damarukam is releasing on Saturday November 10.
