Fall Movie Season: September 2012

filmreel

The Summer Movie Season has flown by but there are still many movies to see this month including some big hits lingering in theaters from the summer. Those movies include “The Dark Knight Rises”, “Total Recall”, and “The Bourne Legacy”.

The month kicks off with the thriller “The Cold Light of Day” starring Henry Cavill (“Immortals”), Bruce Willis (“Die Hard”), and Academy Award nominee Sigourney Weaver (“Avatar”). The expanded release of the comedy “For a Good Time, Call…” makes it way into more theaters with appearances by comedic actors/actresses like Seth Rogan (“Knocked Up”), Justin Long (“Accepted”), and Nia Vardalos (“My Big Fat Greek Wedding”) just to name a few.

Mid-month a box office smash returns to theaters but in 3D. Disney/Pixar’s “Finding Nemo” in 3D should be an amazing feast for the eyes. Also the reboot of the Comic Book character Judge Dredd makes it way back to the big screen in “Dredd 3D”. The original film was released in 1995 and Sylvester Stallone starred as the title character. It wasn’t a great film, so hopefully the reboot is better.

At the end of the month, Adam Sandler (“Big Daddy”) and many SNL alumni and comedic actors/actresses voice the animated film “Hotel Transylvania”, a resort where monsters go, it could be a hit or big flop. Other voice talents include Andy Samberg, Kevin James, Molly Shannon, and Selena Gomez just to name a few. Bruce Willis and Joseph Gordon-Levitt star in the movie “Looper” as the same character, Joe. Although things become difficult when future and past Joe meet and one has to eliminate the other. Also Academy Award nominee, Anna Kendrick, stars in “Pitch Perfect” which is college A Capella meets Glee.

My spotlight pick of the month is “The Perks of Being a Wallflower” based on the novel by Stephen Chbosky. A coming-of-age story starring Logan Lerman (“Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief”), Emma Watson from the Harry Potter film franchise, and Ezra Miller.

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.

Fall Movie Season: November 2010

filmreel

It’s November so it’s time to see a month full of big hits. The month kicks off with Robert Downey, Jr., Zach Galifianakis, and Academy Award winner Jamie Foxx starring in “Due Date”, which is directed and written by Todd Phillips (“The Hangover”). Will Ferrell and Brad Pitt star in the animated film“Megamind” which is in 3D.

Toward the middle of the month, we have the hits that promise to become big blockbusters. Tony Scott’s “Unstoppable” looks like it will do well in theaters combining Academy Award winner, Denzel Washington (“Training Day”) and Star Trek star Chris Pine. The biggest potential box office hit will probably be two words…Harry Potter. Part 1 of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” will be released on November 19, 2010 and looks to be epic. Russell Crowe stars in “The Next Three Days” which is very reminiscent of the TV show “Prison Break”.

Thanksgiving has some promising releases with “Burlesque”, “The Nutcracker in 3D”, and Disney’s “Tangled” which is spin on the classic tale of Rapunzel.

My spotlight picks of the month are “Morning Glory” and “Love and Other Drugs”. “Morning Glory” written by the screen writer of “The Devil Wears Prada” stars Rachel McAdams, Harrison Ford, and Academy Award winner Diane Keaton (“Annie Hall”). Academy Award nominees Jake Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway team up again for “Love and Other Drugs” where Gyllenhaal plays a pharmaceutical sales rep who meets his match when he meets a free spirited woman played by Hathaway.

Summer Movie Season: June 2010

filmreel

The upcoming movie releases for the month of June can be summarized into comedies, remakes, and sequels. Opening weekend of June we have “Get Him to the Greek” directed by Nicholas Stoller (“Forgetting Sarah Marshall”). Russell Brand reprises his role as Aldous Snow and Jonah Hill (“Knocked Up”) has the job of trying to get Aldous Snow to a performance at the Greek Theater. Also opening this weekend is “Killers” starring Ashton Kutcher and Katherine Heigl, “Splice” starring Academy Award winner Adrien Brody (“The Pianist”), and family film “Marmaduke”.

The “A-Team” hits the big screen this month as well as the remake for “The Karate Kid” starring Jackie Chan and Jaden Smith. DC Comics’s next adaptation, “Jonah Hex”, starring Josh Brolin and Megan Fox (“Transformers”) looks to be a potential box office hit but I think the big box office hit of the month will be “Toy Story 3” in 3D.

Toward the end of the month Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz team up for “Knight & Day” which is an action comedy. Funny men Adam Sandler, David Spade, Kevin James, Chris Rock, and Rob Schneider are in the comedy “Grown Ups”. Lastly the latest installment of the “Twilight” series “Eclipse” will be theaters on June 30, 2010, which is sure to be a big box office hit.

My spotlight pick of the month is “Ondine” starring Colin Farrell. It seems like a more contemporary rendition of “Splash” with more emotion.

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 more Summer Movie Season previews.

Spring Movie Season: March 2010

filmreel

It’s almost Spring! In the spirit of Spring and taking a cue from Disney, looking at the upcoming film releases for the month one word comes to my mind – twitterpated. Of course not all of the films have a romantic theme to it. There’s a mix of drama, action, and fantasy thrown into the month as well. Tim Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland” kicks off the month in 3D style.

Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass (“The Bourne Supremecy”) team up again for “Green Zone”. “Twilight’s” Robert Pattinson takes a dramatic role in “Remember Me” also co-starring Lost’s Emilie de Ravin.

Gerard Butler and America Ferrera both star in their own feature films this month as well as co-star in the animated feature “How to Train Your Dragon”. Gerard Butler and Jennifer Aniston take on the screen in “The Bounty Hunter” and America Ferrera gets married in “Our Family Wedding”.

Toward the end of the month, John Cusack goes back in time in the comedy “Hot Tub Time Machine”. Rounding out the month is the screen adaptation of “The Last Song” by Nicholas Sparks starring Miley Cyrus.

My spotlight pick of the month is “Waking Sleeping Beauty” which is a documentary that shows the creative period around the mid-1980’s as Disney developed and produced some of the most successful animated films in history. Well that’s my March overview, click on the link below to check out the rest of the movies coming out this month.

Fall Movie Season: November 2009

filmreel

At a glance, the month of November has a potential box office hit coming out every weekend. I think it is safe to predict that “New Moon”, the anticipated sequel to “Twilight” is going to be a big hit. For those who are not “Twi-hards” there are plenty of other movies coming out this month that may interest you. Kicking off the first weekend of November is Disney’s “A Christmas Carol” in 3D which I think is going to look amazing in 3D. For those who are still in the Halloween mood there is “The Fourth Kind” which is based on actual events.

Sticking with the animation theme, the “Fanastic Mr. Fox”, “Planet 51”, and “The Princess and the Frog” will premiere this month as well. From the writer and the director of “The Day After Tomorrow” is Roland Emmerich’s latest work “2012”. I actually liked “The Day After Tomorrow” more than I thought I would, so perhaps “2012” would be worth checking out. Want more action than a disaster film? You may want to check out “Ninja Assassin” which is coming out the day before Thanksgiving.

Dialing it back a couple of notches from blood and disaster to feel-good film is “The Blind Side” starring Sandra Bullock which is based on the true story of professional football player Michael Oher. Looking for a family comedy that is non-animated? Perhaps check out “Old Dogs” starring Robin Williams and John Travolta.

My spotlight pick of the month is “Precious” which is based upon the novel “Push” by Sapphire. This movie has been getting some Oscar buzz and with Executive Producers Oprah Winfrey and Tyler Perry behind the film; this film must be something special. The trailer and some of the scenes for “Precious” had me tearing up already. Mariah Carey also stars in the film as well. Check out the video below to hear Oprah talk about the film a little bit more. Well that’s my November overview, click on the link below to check out the rest of the movies coming out in the next month.

Fall Movie Season: October 2009

filmreel

Now that Fall is in full swing, what movies can we expect in the month of October? I know when I think about the month of October, the first thing that pops into my mind is Halloween and with Halloween I think scary/horror themed movies. There are a few scary/horror movies this month such as “Zombieland”, “The Stepfather”, and the lastest “Saw” installment “Saw VI”. I never saw a “Saw” film, but they must be popular in order for the studio to continue producing them. Those who are eagerly waiting for the next “Twilight” movie will have to wait another month, but if you need a vampire fix, then you may want to check out “Cirque Du Freak: The Vampire’s Assistant”.

I think October will be animation/cgi domination in the box office. The big releases that fall into this category are “Astro Boy”, “Where the Wild Things Are”, and for a limited time the 3D versions of “The Nightmare Before Christmas” and “Toy Story/Toy Story 2”. There are few comedies out this coming month with Drew Barrymore’s “Whip It”, “Couples Retreat”, and “The Invention of Lying” starring Ricky Gervais and Jennifer Garner.

My spotlight picks of the month are “New York, I Love You” and “This Is It”. “New York, I Love You” is inspired by “Paris, I Love You” and it has an all-star cast and is directed by an all-star group of directors. The cast includes Bradley Cooper, Orlando Bloom, Natalie Portman, Christina Ricci, and “Dancing with the Stars” alum Cloris Leachman just to name a few. “This Is It” is the Michael Jackson special event concert which will be in theaters (IMAX too) for a limited time. The concept is bittersweet as it is Jackson’s final performance but also a celebration of his career. That’s my October overview, click on the link below to check out the rest of the movies coming out in the next month.
