Winter Movie Season: January 2013

filmreel

Happy New Year! What better way to celebrate the new year with the first blog post in 2013! Plenty of great movies to see this month in addition to some December 2012 movies still in the theaters. Such as Golden Globe nominated films “Les Miserables”, “Zero Dark Thirty” and Quentin Tarantino’s “Django Unchained”. Also there is “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey”, Judd Apatow’s “This is 40”, and Tom Cruise stars as “Jack Reacher” based on the novels by Lee Child.

The month kicks off with the horror thriller “Texas Chainsaw 3D”. Mid-month Mark Wahlberg and Academy Award winner Russell Crowe (“Gladiator”) star in the crime drama “Broken City”. He’s…back! Arnold Schwarzenegger stars in “The Last Stand”. Schwarzenegger plays a sheriff who has to stop a drug cartel leader with the help of his inexperienced crew members. At the end of the month, Jeremy Renner (“The Avengers”) and Gemma Arterton (“Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time”) play Hansel and Gretel in a dark spin-off of the fairy-tale where the siblings are bounty hunters who track and kill witches. Kind of cross between the TV shows, ABC’s Once Upon a Time and NBC’s Grimm.

My spotlight pick of the month is “Gangster Squad”, which has an all-star cast including Academy Award winner Sean Penn (“Mystic River”), Josh Brolin, Ryan Gosling, and Emma Stone. It’s a crime drama that’s set in the 1940s and 50s where the LAPD fights to keep gangsters off the streets.

Well that’s my January 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 movie release dates and my picks of the month!

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.

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