Summer Movie Season: May 2011

filmreel

The Summer Movie Season is finally here! The films being released this month all aim to rule the box office while some hope to be box office blockbusters. The next Marvel Comic hero to hit the big screen is “Thor” which opens the month starring Chris Hemsworth (“Star Trek”) in the title role along with Academy Award winners Natalie Portman (“Black Swan”) and Sir Anthony Hopkins (“Silence of the Lambs”). Looking for more of a rom com? Check out “Something Borrowed”, which is based on the best selling book by Emily Giffin,

The following week SNL alumi Kristen Wiig and Maya Rudolph lead an ensemble cast in “Bridesmaids”, which could be a big hilarious hit or a huge miss. Another SNL alum, Will Ferrell, stars in “Everything Must Go”. It’s a dramedy (drama/comedy) that looks like it can be funny but yet poignant sort of like Stranger Than Fiction.

Toward the end of the month are some movie sequels. Johnny Depp stars in the latest film in Disney’s Pirates of the Carribbean franchise titled “Pirates of the Carribbean: On Stranger Tides”. This time around Academy Award winner Penelope Cruz (“Vicky Cristina Barcelona”) stars as the female lead. The Hangover gang consisting of Phil (Bradley Cooper), Stu (Ed Helms), Alan (Zach Galifianakis) and Doug (Justin Bartha) return for Stu’s wedding in “The Hangover Part II”, which is set in Thailand. Also part of the sequel train is DreamWorks’ big hit Kung Fu Panda returns to the big screen in its sequel “Kung Fu Panda 2”.

“Tree of Life” also opens this month and has a lot of buzz surrounding it. Brad Pitt and Academy Award winner Sean Penn (“Milk”) star in this drama/sci-fi picture which is directed by Terrence Malick (“The Think Red Line”)

My spotlight pick of the month is “Last Night” starring Sam Worthington (“Avatar”), Keira Knightley (“Atonement”), Eva Mendes, and Guillaume Canet. Reminiscent of “Closer” it explores relationships both past and present and resisting temptation.

Fall Movie Season: November 2010

filmreel

It’s November so it’s time to see a month full of big hits. The month kicks off with Robert Downey, Jr., Zach Galifianakis, and Academy Award winner Jamie Foxx starring in “Due Date”, which is directed and written by Todd Phillips (“The Hangover”). Will Ferrell and Brad Pitt star in the animated film“Megamind” which is in 3D.

Toward the middle of the month, we have the hits that promise to become big blockbusters. Tony Scott’s “Unstoppable” looks like it will do well in theaters combining Academy Award winner, Denzel Washington (“Training Day”) and Star Trek star Chris Pine. The biggest potential box office hit will probably be two words…Harry Potter. Part 1 of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” will be released on November 19, 2010 and looks to be epic. Russell Crowe stars in “The Next Three Days” which is very reminiscent of the TV show “Prison Break”.

Thanksgiving has some promising releases with “Burlesque”, “The Nutcracker in 3D”, and Disney’s “Tangled” which is spin on the classic tale of Rapunzel.

My spotlight picks of the month are “Morning Glory” and “Love and Other Drugs”. “Morning Glory” written by the screen writer of “The Devil Wears Prada” stars Rachel McAdams, Harrison Ford, and Academy Award winner Diane Keaton (“Annie Hall”). Academy Award nominees Jake Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway team up again for “Love and Other Drugs” where Gyllenhaal plays a pharmaceutical sales rep who meets his match when he meets a free spirited woman played by Hathaway.

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.
