Winter Movie Season: January 2012

filmreel

Another year has passed and welcome to a new year! The new year starts with a mix of movies. Mark Wahlberg stars in “Contraband” while if you’re looking for a more cheerful movie…Queen Latifah and Dolly Parton star in “Joyful Noise”.

The rest of the month is all about the thrillers. Ewan McGregor (“Moulin Rouge”), Antonio Banderas (“Desperado”), Michael Douglas (“Wall Street”), and Channing Tatum (“G.I. Joe: The Rise of the Cobra”) headline “Haywire” which looks like a cross between Alias and The Bourne Ultimatum. The film is directed by Steven Soderberg, amongst his credits include Ocean’s Eleven and Traffic. Other thrillers being released this month include that latest in the Underworld franchise, “Underworld Awakening”, Liam Neeson starring in “The Grey” and Sam Worthington (“Avatar”) stars in “Man on a Ledge”.

At the end of the month it’s the movie release of “One for the Money”. Fans of the books have been very vocal about the casting choices but the film is complete. Originally the film was suppose to be released in Summer 2011, but it was pushed back. Good move or bad move…we shall see. I think there is enough curiosity surrounding it that people are going to go out and see it.

My spotlight pick of the month is T“Beauty and the Beast” 3D. This could be a big hit considering the success of bringing back “The Lion King” in 3D last year. I think the film will look great in 3D, especially the ballroom scene.

Well that’s my January 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 Winter 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.

One For the Money PosterSource: Hollywood Reporter

Check out the new movie poster from The Hollywood Reporter for “One For the Money” starring Katherine Heigl as Stephanie Plum, a bounty hunter from New Jersey. The movie is based on the book series by Janet Evanovich.  For information about the other castings, click here for more details.

“One For The Money” is due out in theaters on January 27, 2012. The film was suppose to be released in Summer 2011, but I guess it was pushed back due to the competitive summer movie season. Or was it? Fans of the Stephanie Plum series, including myself, have been very vocal about the casting choices made for the film, regardless I still think this will draw fans of the series to the theaters. Will this movie be a hit or a big flop? Share your thoughts in the comments section below!

Fall Movie Season: October 2010

filmreel

It’s October and the theme of the month is Halloween, scary movies, and the paranormal. If that’s not your cup of tea, there are some feel good movies and action movies coming out this month as well. Opening the month is “The Social Network”, which has been garnering some buzz. “Case 39” stars Bradley Cooper (“The Hangover”) and Renee Zellweger which is one the scary/horror films of the month.

Stepping away from the scary/horror films, then you want to turn to some family films like “Life As We Know It” and Disney’s “Secretariat”. Based upon the true story of the last Triple Crown winning horse, can Secretariat score the numbers that Seabiscuit garnered? I guess we shall see.

Also gaining some good feedback is “Red” based upon the D.C. Comics graphic novel by Warren Ellis and Cully Hamner. Academy Award winner, Helen Mirren, wields a large automatic weapon in the trailer. It’s either going to be awesome or an epic fail.

I believe the potential blockbusters of the month will be a scary/horror film. Could it be a sequel, such as “Saw 3D” or “Paranormal Activity 2” or possibly “My Soul to Take” from Wes Craven, director of the “Scream” film franchise.

My spotlight pick of the month is “It’s Kind of a Funny Story” adapted from Ned Vizzini’s 2006 novel of the same name and the film stars Zach Galifianakis (“The Hangover”). Looks to be an offbeat and quirky dramedy (drama/comedy) with possible tear jerking moments.

Well that’s my October 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.

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.

Former “Life on Mars” star Jason O’Mara has been cast as Joe Morelli in the screen adaptation of “One for the Money”, which is the first novel in the Stephanie Plum book series by Janet Evanovich. O’Mara will star opposite Katherine Heigl (“Grey’s Anatomy”) who will play the title character Stephanie Plum. According to Variety.com, Daniel Sunjata (“Rescue Me”) has been cast as a veteran bounty hunter, which means he is likely playing Ranger.

As someone who has read most of the Stephanie Plum book series, I was surprised to hear of Heigl nabbing the title role of Stephanie Plum. If you read the series, I think it is safe to say that Heigl is not the first person you would’ve pictured for the role. The characters and the setting of the books take place in New Jersey. Stephanie Plum is suppose to be someone struggling with their weight and a rookie in training bounty hunter. It’s a combination which doesn’t exactly scream Katherine Heigl, but I guess we just have to wait and see. As for O’Mara, I think he is a good actor but an Irishman playing an Italian guy born and raised in New Jersey? On paper, it is a bit of a head scratcher. Then again, O’Mara did play a New York City cop on the TV Drama “Life on Mars”. On the other hand, Sunjata somewhat looks the part but is he bad-ass enough to play Ranger?

2009 Emmy Nominations

Source: Academy of Television Arts & Sciences

The 61st Primetime Emmy Awards will be held on Sunday, September 20, 2009. Neil Patrick Harris (“How I Met Your Mother”) will have hosting duties. In my opinion there were some surprise snubs. Notably missing from the nominees were America Ferrera (“Ugly Betty”), Katherine Heigl (“Grey’s Anatomy”), and Anna Paquin who won a Golden Globe for her performance in “True Blood” this year.

Kudos to “Chuck” for receiving one nomination for Outstanding Stunt Coordination for “Chuck versus The First Date” and an extra special thumbs up to “Legend of the Seeker” for receiving its first Emmy nomination for Outstanding Music Composition for a Series (Original Dramatic Score) for its series premiere: “Prophecy”. I also hope that this is the year that either Chandra Wilson or Sandra Oh will win an Emmy for their work on “Grey’s Anatomy”.
