Spring Movie Season: April 2010

filmreel

It’s officially Spring! In another month the summer movie season kicks off but this month there are potential box office hits. Kicking off the month there is “Clash of the Titans” starring Sam Worthington (“Avatar”) and Liam Neeson (“Taken”). Looks like the vampire craze may be moving on, but the Greek Gods are in.

Steve Carrell and Tina Fey star in the comedy “Date Night”, where a simple evening turns into everything but. A possible sleeper hit is “Kick-Ass” where ordinary people become superheroes minus special superpowers. You may recognize Christopher Mintz-Plasse aka McLovin’ from “Superbad” as part of the cast as well as Academy Award winner Nicolas Cage.

Jennifer Lopez returns to the big screen after taking a maternity hiatus in the rom com “The Back-Up Plan”, which ironically has to do with having babies. The film also stars Alex O’Loughlin (“Moonlight”). Before Chris Evans straps on the Captain America costume, he stars in the action film “The Losers”, which is about a team of U.S. Special Ops agents set out on a mission and failure is not an option.

My spotlight pick of the month is “My Girlfriend’s Boyfriend” which stars Alyssa Milano (“Charmed”) and Christopher Gorham (“Ugly Betty”). It sounds a cross between “My Best Friend’s Wedding” and the ABC TV show “The Bachelor” but I am a fan of Christopher Gorham and I’ve always appreciated his work.

Well that’s my April overview, click on the link below to check out the rest of the movies coming out this month and check back next month for my Summer Movie Season preview.
