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.

“Red Riding Hood” – Trailer

Video Source: Comingsoon.net
Vodpod videos no longer available.

Catherine Hardwicke (Twilight) directs “Red Riding Hood” starring Amanda Seyfried, Gary Oldman, Billy Burke, Shiloh Fernandez, Max Irons, Virginia Madsen and Julie Christie. Looks like “Twilight” meets “West Side Story”. Could it be a hit or flop? I can see it go either way.

Here’s a synopsis via IMDB.com:

Valerie (Seyfried) is a beautiful young woman torn between two men. She is in love with a brooding outsider, Peter (Fernandez), but her parents have arranged for her to marry the wealthy Henry (Irons). Unwilling to lose each other, Valerie and Peter are planning to run away together when they learn that Valerie’s older sister has been killed by the werewolf that prowls the dark forest surrounding their village. For years, the people have maintained an uneasy truce with the beast, offering the creature a monthly animal sacrifice. But under a blood red moon, the wolf has upped the stakes by taking a human life. Hungry for revenge, the people call on famed werewolf hunter, Father Solomon (Oldman), to help them kill the wolf. But Solomon’s arrival brings unintended consequences as he warns that the wolf, who takes human form by day, could be any one of them. As the death toll rises with each moon, Valerie begins to suspect that the werewolf could be someone she loves. As panic grips the town, Valerie discovers that she has a unique connection to the beast–one that inexorably draws them together, making her both suspect…and bait.

“Red Riding Hood” will be released in theaters on March 11, 2011. You can also watch the trailer in HD on Apple.com.
