So, this year there seems to be a lot of hype around film releases which is really good in one way, and totally baffling in another. You always see trailers at the cinema and sometimes they just seem to merge into one. So I'm going to tell you what films I think you should be looking out for. But if you don't like them when you go and see them, don't blame me, blame the makers!
Toy Story 3 is an obvious one; lets just get that over and done with. It's been over 10 years since we've seen our good friends Woody and Buzz, so this release is bound to be a huge box office hit. I'm really hoping they've kept the humour and real magic this film seemed to create when it first came to our screens. There's a sense of originality about this Pixar that the others just can't seem to capture. Being released on 23rd July, make sure you've got your ticket.
The Twilight Saga: Eclipse is a film I'm just waiting on the edge of my seat to see. I know it's not to everyone's taste and they are exceptionally bad films in terms of the incredibly obvious sexual tension and the kiddy audience they attract, but there's something about this whole Twilight obsession that's got me hooked... Maybe there's subliminal messaging going on. Anyhow, on 9th July I will be reunited with Jacob, and so will all those lovely little girls in love with these characters.
The A Team is a weird one for me. I know nothing about the series apart from the fact that Mr. T wears a lot of gold jewellery from countless fancy dress party costume. A promising cast including Liam Neeson, Jessica Biel and Bradley Cooper, this film seems as if it's going to be a funny action movie. 30th July... Be there fool!
Inception: "In a world where technology exists to enter the human mind through dream invasion, a single idea within one's mind can be the most dangerous weapon or the most valuable asset" (www.imdb.com) - If that doesn't catch your attention then maybe the fact that my favourite actor at the moment Leonardo DiCaprio is in it will! Probably just another lost film about how the world is in caos, on the 16th July I'll surely be at the cinema to see this, even if it is just to see how good DiCaprio is.
The Expendables is possibly one of the biggest films this summer in terms of the stars it has in it. Stallone, Statham, Li, Willis, Schwarzenegger and Rourke... Seriously, the cinema is gonna be so filled with testosterone on 20th August.
Get Him To Greek looks as if it's going to be another film about how crazy and sex driven Russell Brand is, and who doesn't want that?! With good old Jonah Hill playing the poor victim needing to get Aldous Snow (Brand) back to L.A. in 3 days, hopefully we'll see silly scenes of drinking and drug related activities all leading to the eventual story becoming more and more wild as the days go on. 4th June is when this beautiful man comes back on our screens... And Russell Brand.
Scott Prilgrim vs. The World on the 6th August has come at the perfect time with Kick Ass bringing in a new interest to quirky comic books. About the unlikely hero Scott (Michael Cera) defeating his love's 7 ex-partners to be with her, this film is sure to be silly, make you laugh and be full of those indie type effects that make films so much more appealing.
Killers looks like it is going to get a lot of hype as it stars everyone's favourite Ashton Kutcher and Katherine Heigl playing the unlikely couple wanting to be assisnated by their neighbours. It's going to be a bit of a commercial, money pulling film but I'm sure will be entertaining enough for a couple of hours - That's out on the 16th June.
So, I hope that's set you up for all those summery days stuck inside because of rain. There are some big films coming out this month including Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time (28th May), Sex and the City 2 (27th May) and Robin Hood (14th May) but I figured you had already seen a lot of trailers for them.
Enjoy and let me know what you think!
