This weekend's highlighted run bills itself as the happiest on the planet. The Color Run is tomorrow and it's not really about speed, so anyone can do it. It's about the color!

The latest installment in the Captain America series hits megaplexes this weekend. "Captain America: the Winter Soldier" checks in on Captain America/Steve Rogers as he is still struggling to fit in in the modern world. Add a little Cold War paranoia with a Soviet agent called the Winter Soldier and let the explosions fly. A tip for you: there are additional scenes during and after the credits so don't get up right away. Chris Evans as cap, Samuel L. Jackson and Scarlett Johansson star in "Captain America: the Winter Soldier" is rated PG13.
