Summer Movie Season: June 2012

filmreel

The Summer Movie Season is underway! The month of the May kicks off the Summer Movie Season and some of the hits from May are still in theaters. Those movies include “The Avengers” and “Men in Black 3”. This month has a lot of potential hits with stories that include dwarfs, aliens, vampires, and strippers?

The month kicks off with the re-telling of the classic story of Snow White with a twist in “Snow White and the Huntsman” starring Kristen Stewart (“Twilight”), Chris Hemsworth (“Thor”), and Academy Award winner Charlize Theron (“Monster”) as the evil queen. Visually the film has great special effects and the story twist was intriguing. Charlize Theron was quite the wicked evil queen.

Dreamworks’ “Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted” returns with its latest installment in the franchise but this time they take a detour to the circus, literally. An all-star cast star in the sci-fi thriller “Prometheus”, where a group of scientists follow a clue that uncovers the origin of mankind on Earth but they end up in a battle to save the human race.

Mid-month, Adam Shankman (“Hairspray”), pulls triple duty in directing, choreographing, and producing the stage to screen adaptation of “Rock of Ages”. The all-star cast include Academy Award Winner, Catherine Zeta-Jones (“Chicago”), Alec Baldwin (“30 Rock”), Russell Brand (“Forgetting Sarah Marshall”), Julianne Hough, Mary J. Blige, and Tom Cruise. Toward the end of the month, based on the best-selling novel by Seth Grahame-Smith, “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Slayer” is brought to the screen directed by Timur Bekmambetov (“Wanted”). Also Academy Award winning director Steven Soderberg (“Traffic”) directs “Magic Mike” starring Channing Tatum (“G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra”), Alex Pettyfer (“I Am Number Four”), Joe Manganiello (“True Blood”), Matt Bomer (“White Collar”), and Matthew McConaughey (“The Lincoln Lawyer”). The story focuses on an experienced stripper (Tatum) who acts as a mentor to a young up and coming stripper (Pettyfer).

My spotlight pick of the month is Disney/Pixar’s film “Brave”. A story of a princess trying to change her fate and bring an end to a beastly curse. It looks likes a fun and visually stunning film.

If you’ve seen any of the films from this month…leave some feedback/suggestions in the Comments section on what to see.

Three New CW Pilots in the works

Source: Comingsoon.net

The CW network has plans to move forward with ordering pilots for three new television series. Based on the DC Comics’ character, Green Arrow, the series “Arrow” is one of the pilots ordered. Greg Berlanti is one of the individuals tied to the project, so this show may have potential. Berlanti has produced such shows like “Dawson’s Creek”, “Everwood”, “Brother & Sisters”, and more recently he co-wrote the DC Comics’ movie adaptation of “Green Lantern” starring Ryan Reynolds and he also directed the film “Life as We Know It” starring Josh Duhamel and Katherine Heigl. Seems like “Arrow” might be try to capitalize on the success of “Smallville” which had its series finale in 2011. Although the CW tried to bring “Aquaman” to the network, but the show never made it to air. Although the pilot episode is still available on iTunes. Justin Hartley was the lead in “Aquaman”, but when the pilot fell through he later starred as Green Arrow aka Oliver Queen and became a regular cast member on “Smallville”. However, according to Entertainment Weekly, Hartley is not being courted nor will be tied to the new series.

Winter Movie Season: February 2011

filmreel

February is shaping up to be the month of romantic comedies. The month kicks off with Natalie Portman starring in “The Other Woman”, which is a limited release. Portman seems to be having a big year with a Golden Globe win for Best Actress for her work in “The Black Swan” and she is currently the front runner for the Oscars as well. “Sanctum” also opens the month produced by James Cameron (“Avatar”). Can Sanctum get some of Avatar’s success?

Mid-month we have Channing Tatum (“Step Up”) starring in “The Eagle”, the story of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet acted out by gnomes in “Gnomeo & Juliet”, and the rom com “Just Go with It” starring Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler. Bieber fever also makes it to the big screen with the film “Justin Bieber: Never Say Never” in 3D/2D.

Toward the end of the month there’s “Hall Pass” starring Owen Wilson and “I am Number Four”, which has the potential of being a hit or a big miss.

My spotlight pick of the month is “Waiting for Forever”. A little romance and a little drama is quite apropro for the month of commercial marketing.

Well that’s my February 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 Winter Movie Season picks.
