Summer Movie Season: August 2011

filmreel

The Summer Movie Season is almost over as we go into the last month of summer. How time flies! This month the films are more low-key but there are a few films that may bring in the crowds. Kicking off the the month, Jason Bateman and Ryan Reynolds star in “The Change-Up” which has a “Freaky Friday” sort of premise where each guy swap lives literally in each other’s body. Also opening is the prequel to “Planet of the Apes”, “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” starring James Franco. This film can go either way, but watching the trailer reminds me of the “Gozilla” remake starring Matthew Broderick, which was kind of a bust.

Based upon the best selling novel, “The Help”, makes its way to the big screen. Emma Stone, Bryce Dallas Howard, Octavia Spencer, and Academy Award nominee Viola Davis head the cast in what looks to be a poignant yet funny film. From the director of “Zombieland”, “30 Minutes or Less” looks to be a funny film that could be a hit or a miss. Also following in the 3D concert film fad is “Glee: The 3D Concert Movie”. This concert film should be a hit on paper judging on past concert films such as Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus concert, The Jonas Brothers, and Justin Bieber in “Never Say Never”.

Step aside Mr. Schwarzenegger and welcome the new Conan, Jason Momoa, who stars in the remake of “Conan the Barbarian”. The original film came out in 1982, so with all of the advancements in technology the film should have much improved visual effects from the original…the script on the other hand is a different story. I guess we shall see once the reviews come in.

Toward the end of the month, Paul Rudd along with Zooey Deschanel, Elizabeth Banks, Emily Mortimer, and Rashida Jones star in “Our Idiot Brother”, which looks to be a funny film.

My spotlight picks of the month are “One Day” and “The Whistleblower. “One Day” is based upon the best-selling novel by David Nicholls and stars Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess. This film was suppose to open last month but it got pushed to this month. Nonetheless, the book was really good, and I’m looking forward to seeing how it translates to screen. Thus far the trailers look on point. If you haven’t seen the trailers for “One Day” yet, click here to watch both trailers. “The Whistleblower stars Academy Award winner Rachel Weisz, in a film that is based on actual events where a police officer tries to keep the peace in post-war Bosnia but uncovers corruption and cover ups. Looks like an intriguing thriller that already has some Oscar buzz surrounding it.

Well that’s my August overview, click on the link below to check out the rest of the movies coming out this month and check back next month for the start of the Fall Movie Season and my picks of the month. If you’ve seen any of the films from this month…leave some feedback/suggestions in the Comments section on what to see.

Watch the second trailer for the movie “One Day” starring Anne Hathaway, Jim Sturgess, Patricia Clarkson, Rafe Spall, Ken Stott, and Romola Garai. Alternatively you can watch the trailer in HD on Focus Features‘ website. If you missed the first trailer, you can watch it here. This film was set to open in July, but it has been pushed back. The new theatrical release date is now August 19, 2011.

Interesting move, but understandable as the movie box office competition for the month of July is looking a bit fierce. However is it kind of a shame as the book’s premise focuses on the date of July 15th over the course of 20 years. Looking forward to seeing the film either way. 🙂
