Winter Movie Season: January 2013


Happy New Year! What better way to celebrate the new year with the first blog post in 2013! Plenty of great movies to see this month in addition to some December 2012 movies still in the theaters. Such as Golden Globe nominated films “Les Miserables”, “Zero Dark Thirty” and Quentin Tarantino’s “Django Unchained”. Also there is “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey”, Judd Apatow’s “This is 40”, and Tom Cruise stars as “Jack Reacher” based on the novels by Lee Child.

The month kicks off with the horror thriller “Texas Chainsaw 3D”. Mid-month Mark Wahlberg and Academy Award winner Russell Crowe (“Gladiator”) star in the crime drama “Broken City”. He’s…back! Arnold Schwarzenegger stars in “The Last Stand”. Schwarzenegger plays a sheriff who has to stop a drug cartel leader with the help of his inexperienced crew members. At the end of the month, Jeremy Renner (“The Avengers”) and Gemma Arterton (“Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time”) play Hansel and Gretel in a dark spin-off of the fairy-tale where the siblings are bounty hunters who track and kill witches. Kind of cross between the TV shows, ABC’s Once Upon a Time and NBC’s Grimm.

My spotlight pick of the month is “Gangster Squad”, which has an all-star cast including Academy Award winner Sean Penn (“Mystic River”), Josh Brolin, Ryan Gosling, and Emma Stone. It’s a crime drama that’s set in the 1940s and 50s where the LAPD fights to keep gangsters off the streets.

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 movie release dates 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.

Peter Jackson and upcoming projects

Source: Comingsoon.net

Check out this post from Comingsoon.net on Peter Jackson’s upcoming projects including “District 9”, “The Hobbit”, and “The Lovely Bones”. Jackson produced the upcoming Sci-Fi flick “District 9” which is set to open in theaters on August 14, 2009. Also mentioned was that the first draft for “The Hobbit” will be finished in a few weeks. The most exciting news to me from this post was that the first trailer for “The Lovely Bones” will be released on August 9th.

“The Lovely Bones” is based on the best-selling novel by Alice Sebold. The book is absolutely amazing and on paper the cast is an award-winning combination. Amongst the cast there are Academy Award winners, nominees, etc. A very accomplished cast indeed. Saoirse Ronan plays the title character Susie Salmon and her on-screen parents will be played by Mark Wahlberg and Rachel Weisz. Full cast list can be found on IMDB.com.
