Before the Summer Movie Season kicks off, there is still some time to catch some Spring movies. So what can you expect from April? Some comedic films and suspense thrillers hit theaters this month as well as an epic movie blockbuster returns but this time in 3D. Opening the month is James Cameron’s “Titanic in 3D”, will it sink or swim to higher box office numbers? The American Pie crew return for “American Reunion”. It could be a hit or a big flop.
“The Cabin in the Woods” co-written by Joss Whedon (“Buffy the Vampire
Slayer”) and stars Chris Hemsworth (“Thor”). In what was suppose to be a simple getaway amongst friends takes an unexpected turn. Guy Pearce (“Memento”) and Maggie Grace (“Lost”) star in “Lockout”, a sci-fi thriller where a man has to save the president’s daughter in exchange for his freedom. Moe, Larry, and Curly make their way from the small screen to the big screen in “The Three Stooges” movie. Looking for a Spring date movie? Perhaps check out “The Lucky One” starring Zac Efron (“17 Again”) and Taylor Schilling (“Dark Matter”) based on the Nicholas Sparks book of the same name.
My spotlight picks of the month are “Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan’s Hope“ and “The Five-Year Engagement”. From the director of “Supersize Me”, Morgan Spurlock, Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan’s Hope is a documentary centering around the famed Comics convention. Jason Segal (“Forgetting Sarah Marshall”) and Emily Blunt (“The Young Victoria”) star in “The Five-Year Engagent”, which looks like its going to be funny but yet sweet. Segal also co-wrote the screenplay.

This November is packed with big action, big laughs, and big sequels. Kicking off the month is “A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas”. The cast is back kicking it to another dimension…and that’s 3D. Ben Stiller and Eddie Murphy lead the comedic cast of “Tower Heist”, which opens the same weekend.
Following week from the producers of 300, the “Immortals” hits theaters starring Henry Cavill (“The Tudors”) and Mickey Rourke. A film that can very well be a big hit. Adam Sandler performs double duty playing both the male and female lead in “Jack and Jill”. This film could be really funny or a flop.
Mid month is the weekend of sequels. The sequel to the Academy Award winning film Happy Feet dances its way to theaters again with “Happy Feet Two”. Part 1 of the final installment of the Twilight series, “Breaking Dawn” hits theaters too.
What’s November without Thanksgiving Day movie releases? This Thanksgiving Academy Award winning director, Martin Scorcese, directs a star filled cast in “Hugo”. The animated film “Arthur Christmas” answers the question: “So how does Santa deliver all those presents in one night?” Voiced by talents including James McAvoy (“Atonement”), Jim Broadbent (“Bridget Jones’s Diary”), Hugh Laurie (“House”), and Bill Nighy.
My spotlight pick of the month is “The Muppets”. Jason Segel (“Forgetting Sarah Marshall”) co-wrote and stars in the new Muppet film as well as Academy Award nominee Amy Adams. Who doesn’t love the Muppets?
