filmreel

Spring is almost upon us! So what films can we expect for the month of March? The month kicks off with Matt Damon and Emily Blunt starring in “The Adjustment Bureau”. Also opening the first weekend of March are “Rango” starring Johnny Depp, a modern day twist on the classic story of Beauty and the Beast is “Beastly” starring “I am Number Four” star Alex Pettyfer and Vanessa Hudgens.

Mia Wasikowska and Michael Fassbender star in the new adaptation of Charlotte Brontë’s “Jane Eyre”, Los Angeles is under attack in “Battle: Los Angeles”, and “Twilight” director Catherine Hardwicke moves on from Vampires and embraces Wolves in “Red Riding Hood”.

Mid month Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro star in “Limitless” that asks “What if there weren’t boundaries?”. Toward the end of the month, Ashley Greene (“Twilight”) stars in “Skateland”.

My spotlight pick of the month is Win Win starring Academy Award nominee Paul Giamatti. This film was an official selection for the 2011 Sundance Film Festival. A feel good film for Spring.

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

**UPDATE 3/5/11: Alec Baldwin will be joining the cast of “Rock of Ages”. He will be playing Dennis, who is the narrator in the stage musical. Adam Shankman posted a tweet on Twitter confirming Baldwin’s role in the film.**

Julianne Hough from “Dancing with the Stars” will be playing Sherrie Christian in the film adaptation of the stage musical “Rock of Ages”. Adam Shankman, who will be directing and choreographing the upcoming film, posted a tweet on Twitter confirming Hough as snagging the female lead. Hough can next be seen in the remake of “Footloose” which is due out in theaters in October (2011).

Other Rock of Ages’ cast members include Tom Cruise, who will be playing Stacee Jaxx (a self absorbed rocker), and Mary J. Blige who will play Justice (a gentleman’s club owner).

I must admit, I do have high hopes for this film. I really enjoyed the musical and with Adam Shankman assuming double duty (director and choreographer) as he did for the film adaptation of the stage musical “Hairspray”, it looks to be a great time at the movies.
