Spring Movie Season: March 2012

filmreel

How time does fly! It’s already the Spring Movie Season. Certainly there are films this month that are potential movie blockbusters. Films such as “The Matrix” and Tim Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland” brought record box office numbers recorded for the month of March. A lot of hype is behind some of the films being released this month…curious to see if they live up to the hype or if they fall short. Opening the month is Dr. Seuss’ “The Lorax”, which features the voice talents of Zac Efron, Taylor Swift, and Danny DeVito. Eddie Murphy becomes a silent film star in “A Thousand Words”. Murphy’s character has to keep quiet or face the consequences.

Disney presents “John Carter”, which looks like Gladiator meets Planet of the Apes on the planet Mars. There have been pretty good reviews on the film so it may be worth checking out. Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill star in “21 Jump Street”, which is an adaptation of the popular late 80’s to early 90’s TV series, which starred Johnny Depp.

Toward the end of the month, the sequel to Clash of the Titans, titled “Wrath of the Titans” is released. Most of cast including Sam Worthington and Liam Neeson return as well as some new cast members. Julia Roberts stars as the evil queen in “Mirror Mirror”, which is one of films this year that is based on Snow White. This summer, Snow White and the Huntsman, promises to be a twist on the classic fairytale.

My spotlight picks of the month are the much anticipated screen adaptation of “The Hunger Games” and from the Academy Award winning writer of Slumdog Millionaire, “Salmon Fishing in the Yemen”, starring Ewan McGregor (“Moulin Rouge!”) and Emily Blunt (“The Young Victoria”). Both films look intriguing in their own ways.

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

Kristen Bell (“Veronica Mars”) and Josh Duhamel (“Transformers”) star in this cute looking romantic comedy about a woman who is unlucky in love but her luck seems to change after a trip to Rome. What can I say…I’m always game to see a good rom-com movie! 🙂

Here is a synopsis via IMDB.com:
Beth Harper (Bell) is a young, successful real estate agent … but she’s completely unlucky in love. However, when the New Yorker travels to Rome to see her newlywed sister, she impulsively steals some coins from a reputed fountain of love, and is then aggressively pursued by a band of wannabe lovers.

The film also stars Academy Award winner Anjelica Huston. I’ve really liked Bell’s work on “Veronica Mars” and ever since the show ended in 2007, she has really made an excellent transition from TV to Movies. Up next for Bell is “Astro Boy”, which will be coming out in theaters this October. Josh Duhamel’s last romantic comedy role was “Win a Date with Tad Hamilton” and currently he can be seen in the “Transformers” movie franchise.
