Watching a movie is one of the most popular weekend activities and the original version is usually in English.

Dubbing (replacing voices of the actors shown on the screen by those of different performers, who may be speaking a different language) and subtitling (written translation of a dialog in a foreign language usually displayed at the bottom of the screen) are the most common methods used to make foreign language films available for everybody.
