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”).

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.

Well that’s my November 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 Fall Movie Season picks.
