Fall Movie Season: September 2011

filmreel

The Summer has flown by and now it’s time for the Fall Movie Season. This is kind of a laid back month for movies. There are star studded films but none that I foresee to be a box office blockbuster. “Contagion” opens the first weekend after Labor Day, which has an all-star cast including some Academy Award winners and nominees. The premise takes our fears about air born diseases and pumps up the scare factor to the max.

Following week we have “Drive” starring Ryan Gosling, which is reminiscent of “The Transporter”. Toward the end of the month are the films that may bring in the crowds. Jason Statham (“The Transporter”) along with Clive Owen (“Closer”), Chuck‘s Yvonne Strahovski, and Academy Award Winner Robert De Niro star in “Killer Elite”, which looks like it’s going to be a high-octane action flick. Brad Pitt stars in “Moneyball”, based on Oakland A’s general manager Billy Beane and how he put together a baseball club on a budget. This film could be interesting or a flop.

Chris Evans (“Captain America: The First Avenger”) and Anna Faris (“Scary Movie”) star in “What’s Your Number?”, based on the novel, “20 Times a Lady”, by Karyn Bosnak. Looks like it could be funny but at the same time it could end up being predictable. It’s all in the story-telling.

My spotlight pick of the month are “50/50”. Seth Rogan (“Knocked Up”) and Joseph Gordon-Levitt (“(500) Days of Summer”) star in “50/50”, which looks funny but yet poignant. It could be a possible tear jerker.

Summer Movie Season: July 2011

filmreel

The Summer Movie Season is in full swing! The box office this month is sure to set off fireworks! The films this month are sure to please all as the themes of the month are Fun, Fantasy, Laughs, and Action. The month kicks off with Selena Gomez starring in “Monte Carlo” which is reminiscent of a “Prince and the Pauper” type of theme in terms of mistaken identity of individuals from different social classes.

Following week we have “Horrible Bosses”, which I feel can be a sleeper hit. The film stars Kevin Spacey, Jennifer Aniston, and Colin Farrell as the “Horrible Bosses” while Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, and SNL‘s Jason Sudeikis are the employees that work for them. The film also stars Academy Award winner, Jamie Foxx (“Ray”). From the writers of “Paul Blart: Mall Cop”, Kevin James stars in “Zookeeper”, which looks like a cross between “Dr. Dolittle” and “Night at the Museum”. It could be a big hit or a big flop.

Mid-month is probably one of the most anticipated films this summer, which is the final installment of the “Harry Potter” franchise, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II”. This film definitely promises to be a big box office hit. I know I’m excited to see it!

Chris Evans (“Fantastic Four”) is Captain America in the next Marvel comic hero film, “Captain America: The First Avenger”. This film could go either way, but it definitely won’t stop movie goers from going to see it. Also opening with “Captain America”, is “Friends with Benefits” starring Justin Timberlake (“The Social Network”) and Mila Kunis (“Forgetting Sarah Marshall”). Not sure how this is any different than No Strings Attached, as it is a similar premise but perhaps it has a different angle.

Toward the end of the month we have “Cowboys & Aliens”. The film stars James Bond star Daniel Craig and Indiana Jones‘ Harrison Ford with direction by “Iron Man” director Jon Favreau and Steven Spielberg producing, this film promises to be a big production. Also opening the same weekend is the 80’s cartoon brought to the screen in CG and in 3D, “The Smurfs” The film stars Neil Patrick Harris (“How I Met Your Mother”), Jayma Mays (“Glee”), and Hank Azaria (“Run Fatboy Run”).

My spotlight picks of the month are “The Ledge” and Crazy, Stupid, Love.” “The Ledge” is a thriller that stars Liv Tyler (“Lord of the Rings”) and she is caught in between two men, Charlie Hunnam (“Nicholas Nickelby”) and Patrick Wilson (“Phantom of the Opera”) who have differing religious beliefs as one is an atheist and the other is a devoted Christian. Crazy, Stupid, Love. stars Steve Carrell (“The Office”) in a film that is reminiscent of “Dan in Real Life” but yet seems different in a way. The film also stars Emma Stone (“Easy A”), Academy Award nominee Ryan Gosling (“Half Nelson”), and Academy Award winner Marisa Tomei (“My Cousin Vinny”).

Summer Movie Season: August 2010

filmreel

Can you believe that we’re already in the last month of Summer? So what movies round out the summer? “The Other Guys” and “Step Up 3D” open during the first weekend of this month.

Academy Award winner Julia Roberts stars in “Eat Pray Love” based on the bestselling novel by Elizabeth Gilbert. “The Expendables” is an action-thriller starring a cast that in one point or another played a hero or a villain. Michael Cera stars in “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World” where he tries to win the girl but in order to do so he has to get past her exes.

Family film “Nanny McPhee Returns” this month starring Academy Award winner Emma Thompson and Academy Award nominee Maggie Gyllenhaal (“Crazy Heart”). If you are looking for a rom com then check out “Going the Distance” starring Drew Barrymore and Justin Long.

At the end of the month there’s “Takers” which stars Paul Walker (“Fast and the Furious”), Matt Dillon, singers T.I. and Chris Brown, and Hayden Christensen (“Star Wars: Attack of the Clones”). Could this film be a hit or just another Bank Heist film? You be the judge.

My spotlight pick of the month is “The Tillman Story”. “The Tillman Story” tells the story of Pat Tillman who gave up his professional football career to join the Army but sadly died during active duty. The trailer suggests that there is more to Tillman’s death and perhaps there is a cover up so it might be interesting to check out.

Well that’s my August 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 first month of the Fall Movie Season.

Spring Movie Season: April 2010

filmreel

It’s officially Spring! In another month the summer movie season kicks off but this month there are potential box office hits. Kicking off the month there is “Clash of the Titans” starring Sam Worthington (“Avatar”) and Liam Neeson (“Taken”). Looks like the vampire craze may be moving on, but the Greek Gods are in.

Steve Carrell and Tina Fey star in the comedy “Date Night”, where a simple evening turns into everything but. A possible sleeper hit is “Kick-Ass” where ordinary people become superheroes minus special superpowers. You may recognize Christopher Mintz-Plasse aka McLovin’ from “Superbad” as part of the cast as well as Academy Award winner Nicolas Cage.

Jennifer Lopez returns to the big screen after taking a maternity hiatus in the rom com “The Back-Up Plan”, which ironically has to do with having babies. The film also stars Alex O’Loughlin (“Moonlight”). Before Chris Evans straps on the Captain America costume, he stars in the action film “The Losers”, which is about a team of U.S. Special Ops agents set out on a mission and failure is not an option.

My spotlight pick of the month is “My Girlfriend’s Boyfriend” which stars Alyssa Milano (“Charmed”) and Christopher Gorham (“Ugly Betty”). It sounds a cross between “My Best Friend’s Wedding” and the ABC TV show “The Bachelor” but I am a fan of Christopher Gorham and I’ve always appreciated his work.

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