Summer Movie Season: May 2011

filmreel

The Summer Movie Season is finally here! The films being released this month all aim to rule the box office while some hope to be box office blockbusters. The next Marvel Comic hero to hit the big screen is “Thor” which opens the month starring Chris Hemsworth (“Star Trek”) in the title role along with Academy Award winners Natalie Portman (“Black Swan”) and Sir Anthony Hopkins (“Silence of the Lambs”). Looking for more of a rom com? Check out “Something Borrowed”, which is based on the best selling book by Emily Giffin,

The following week SNL alumi Kristen Wiig and Maya Rudolph lead an ensemble cast in “Bridesmaids”, which could be a big hilarious hit or a huge miss. Another SNL alum, Will Ferrell, stars in “Everything Must Go”. It’s a dramedy (drama/comedy) that looks like it can be funny but yet poignant sort of like Stranger Than Fiction.

Toward the end of the month are some movie sequels. Johnny Depp stars in the latest film in Disney’s Pirates of the Carribbean franchise titled “Pirates of the Carribbean: On Stranger Tides”. This time around Academy Award winner Penelope Cruz (“Vicky Cristina Barcelona”) stars as the female lead. The Hangover gang consisting of Phil (Bradley Cooper), Stu (Ed Helms), Alan (Zach Galifianakis) and Doug (Justin Bartha) return for Stu’s wedding in “The Hangover Part II”, which is set in Thailand. Also part of the sequel train is DreamWorks’ big hit Kung Fu Panda returns to the big screen in its sequel “Kung Fu Panda 2”.

“Tree of Life” also opens this month and has a lot of buzz surrounding it. Brad Pitt and Academy Award winner Sean Penn (“Milk”) star in this drama/sci-fi picture which is directed by Terrence Malick (“The Think Red Line”)

My spotlight pick of the month is “Last Night” starring Sam Worthington (“Avatar”), Keira Knightley (“Atonement”), Eva Mendes, and Guillaume Canet. Reminiscent of “Closer” it explores relationships both past and present and resisting temptation.

Well that’s my May 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 Summer Movie Season picks.

Winter Movie Season: February 2010

filmreel

The big movie hits in February can be found the weekend of Valentine’s Day. In terms of the month, the themes of the month are action/thriller, romance, and fantasy.

Opening the first weekend of the month is “Dear John” which is the latest Nicholas Sparks adaptation starring Amanda Segfried (“Mamma Mia”) and Channing Tatum (“G.I. Joe: Rise of the Cobra”). Two words: Tear Jerker. “From Paris with Love” stars Jonathan Rhys Meyers and John Travolta in what looks to be a hit or miss movie.

In my opinion the big hits of the month will be released during Valentine’s Day weekend. Those releases include “Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief” based on the best-selling series by Rick Riordan, “The Wolfman”, and “Valentine’s Day” which I like to call the Gary Marshall and ABC all-star cast.

Later in the month “Shutter Island” starring Leonardo DiCaprio will be released. The psychological thriller was directed by Academy Award winner Martin Scorsese. For a bit of comedic relief, Kevin Smith’s latest film “Cop Out” will be released at the end of the month.
