Summer Movie Season: June 2012

filmreel

The Summer Movie Season is underway! The month of the May kicks off the Summer Movie Season and some of the hits from May are still in theaters. Those movies include “The Avengers” and “Men in Black 3”. This month has a lot of potential hits with stories that include dwarfs, aliens, vampires, and strippers?

The month kicks off with the re-telling of the classic story of Snow White with a twist in “Snow White and the Huntsman” starring Kristen Stewart (“Twilight”), Chris Hemsworth (“Thor”), and Academy Award winner Charlize Theron (“Monster”) as the evil queen. Visually the film has great special effects and the story twist was intriguing. Charlize Theron was quite the wicked evil queen.

Dreamworks’ “Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted” returns with its latest installment in the franchise but this time they take a detour to the circus, literally. An all-star cast star in the sci-fi thriller “Prometheus”, where a group of scientists follow a clue that uncovers the origin of mankind on Earth but they end up in a battle to save the human race.

Mid-month, Adam Shankman (“Hairspray”), pulls triple duty in directing, choreographing, and producing the stage to screen adaptation of “Rock of Ages”. The all-star cast include Academy Award Winner, Catherine Zeta-Jones (“Chicago”), Alec Baldwin (“30 Rock”), Russell Brand (“Forgetting Sarah Marshall”), Julianne Hough, Mary J. Blige, and Tom Cruise. Toward the end of the month, based on the best-selling novel by Seth Grahame-Smith, “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Slayer” is brought to the screen directed by Timur Bekmambetov (“Wanted”). Also Academy Award winning director Steven Soderberg (“Traffic”) directs “Magic Mike” starring Channing Tatum (“G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra”), Alex Pettyfer (“I Am Number Four”), Joe Manganiello (“True Blood”), Matt Bomer (“White Collar”), and Matthew McConaughey (“The Lincoln Lawyer”). The story focuses on an experienced stripper (Tatum) who acts as a mentor to a young up and coming stripper (Pettyfer).

My spotlight pick of the month is Disney/Pixar’s film “Brave”. A story of a princess trying to change her fate and bring an end to a beastly curse. It looks likes a fun and visually stunning film.

Fall Movie Season: November 2011

filmreel

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?

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

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.
