There are so many upcoming films this year. 2013 looks like a really good year for cinema. Here’s a list of movies coming out (or that have come out) this month in America. Some look blah, but some look really good!!
WWSW: What Would Saab Watch?
Los Angeles, 1949. Ruthless, Brooklyn-born mob king Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn) runs the show in this town, reaping the ill-gotten gains from the drugs, the guns, the prostitutes and—if he has his way—every wire bet placed west of Chicago. And he does it all with the protection of not only his own paid goons, but also the police and the politicians who are under his control. It’s enough to intimidate even the bravest, street-hardened cop except, perhaps, for the small, secret crew of LAPD outsiders led by Sgt. John O’Mara (Josh Brolin) and Jerry Wooters (Ryan Gosling), who come together to try to tear Cohen’s world apart.
Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone were so cute in Crazy, Stupid Love and now they’re reuniting! Squeeeee! PLUS Sean Penn and Josh Brolin?!?! KAGULO.
Beecham House is abuzz. The rumor circling the halls is that the home for retired musicians is soon to play host to a new resident. Word is, it’s a star. For Reginald Paget (Tom Courtenay), Wilfred Bond (Billy Connolly) and Cecily Robson (Pauline Collins) this sort of talk is par for the course at the gossipy home. But they’re in for a special shock when the new arrival turns out to be none other than their former singing partner, Jean Horton (Maggie Smith). Her subsequent career as a star soloist, and the ego that accompanied it, split up their long friendship and ended her marriage to Reggie, who takes the news of her arrival particularly hard. Can the passage of time heal old wounds? And will the famous quartet be able to patch up their differences in time for Beecham House’s gala concert?
I adore Maggie Smith! This looks like a very cute movie. Trivia: it’s directed by Dustin Hoffman!
Set in a romanticized 1920s Seville, Berger’s Snow White is Carmen (Macarena García), the daughter of a famous bull fighter, who lives under the tyrannical rule of her monstrous, evil stepmother, Encarna (Maribel Verdú). She escapes and joins a troupe of bullfighting dwarves, where her beauty and natural talent in the ring attract notices from the press. But soon the news reaches Encarna, who at last she knows where to find Carmen, and she prepares for the final showdown.
This one is a silent film and an official entry to the Academy Awards as Best Foreign Language Film (but there is no language if it is silent, no?). So much hype surrounding this! Must watch?
This looks like a lot of fun!
From the twisted minds of producers Peter Farrelly (Hall Pass, Shallow Hal) and Charles Wessler (There’s Something About Mary, Dumb & Dumber), comes Movie 43– the outrageous new ensemble comedy starring some of the biggest names in Hollywood. Movie 43 is not for the easily-offended and contains jaw-dropping, sometimes shockingly disturbing, but always entertaining intertwined storylines you’ll have to see to believe.
Must watch if only for the cast!
Matt Damon plays Steve Butler, an ace corporate salesman who is sent along with his partner, Sue Thomason (Frances McDormand), to close a key rural town in his company’s expansion plans. With the town having been hit hard by the economic decline of recent years, the two outsiders see the local citizens as likely to accept their company’s offer, for drilling rights to their properties, as much-needed relief. What seems like an easy job for the duo becomes complicated by the objection of a respected schoolteacher (Hal Holbrook) with support from a grassroots campaign led by another man (John Krasinski), as well as the interest of a local woman (Rosemarie DeWitt).
Matt Damon. Might be worth watching?
Common as a lead actor is intriguing. He’s a famous rapper for those of you who don’t know. The trailer is quite moving.
If a political candidate is personally flawed, but stands to make a positive difference in millions of lives, would you help him win? That question looms over the life of “true believer” Paul Turner (Rob Lowe), a savvy strategist sharply maneuvering politicians out of scandal and into public office.
Writeup sounds boring but the trailer is actually interesting and funny!
Best friends Nick (Alex Karpovsky) and Darryl (co-writer Tarik Lowe) are a New York film editing duo hired to salvage a botched comedy from a manic director (Kevin Corrigan) gone AWOL. But what starts as a simple job quickly sends their relationships—with their significant others and each other—reeling.
Cheesy as hell writeup but 2 cast members from the TV show Girls are in it so might be good.
After leaving his LAPD narcotics post following a bungled operation that left him wracked with remorse and regret, Sheriff Ray Owens (Arnold Schwarzenegger) moved out of Los Angeles and settled into a life fighting what little crime takes place in sleepy border town Sommerton Junction. But that peaceful existence is shattered when Gabriel Cortez (Eduardo Noriega), the most notorious, wanted drug kingpin in the western hemisphere, makes a deadly yet spectacular escape from an FBI prisoner convoy.
The trailer’s entertaining but why name it after an XMEN film?
I’m actually curious if this is any good. Let me know when you see it, okay?
Parker (Jason Statham) is a professional thief who lives by a personal code of ethics: Don’t steal from people who can’t afford it and don’t hurt people who don’t deserve it. But on his latest heist, his crew double crosses him, steals his stash, and leaves him for dead.
I feel like I’m going to fall asleep watching this. Sorry, J to tha L-O.
It’s a drug that promises an out-of-body experience with each hit. On the street they call it Soy Sauce, and users drift across time and dimensions. But some who come back are no longer human. Suddenly a silent otherworldly invasion is underway, and mankind needs a hero. What it gets instead is John and David, a pair of college dropouts who can barely hold down jobs. Can these two stop the oncoming horror in time to save humanity? No. No, they can’t.
Love the poster, not loving the trailer. Apparently this is a book-turned-movie movie. Once again, if you watch it let me know what you think!
A young singer-songwriter with a growing local following wanders through his apathetic life. When his dad and three sisters show up to spread his mother’s ashes, he’s reminded of the part of himself he left back in Ohio and is forced to deal with the person he’s become.
Top YouTube comment is spoiler: he is a hipster. Hahaha.
A supernatural thriller that tells the haunting tale of two little girls who disappeared into the woods the day that their parents were killed. When they are rescued years later and begin a new life, they find that someone or something still wants to come tuck them in at night.
This actually looks really good but I can’t. I’m so over trying to scare myself with horror flicks. Especially now that I don’t live with my mom anymore so I can’t sleep beside her when I get scared. Huhu.
When a doctor and security guard dream at night, their dreams consist of what the other person did during the day. They meet when the security guard murders his wife, is then hit by a car and brought into the doctor’s emergency room.
The writeup sounds kinda cool but the trailer is so cheesy. The title is a turnoff and c’mon, Soulja Boy is in the movie?
Trey Songz is in it – I’ll definitely watch it!! Not.
All Superheroes Must Die
Four superheroes awaken in a seemingly abandoned town, stripped of their powers and at the mercy of their sinister arch-nemesis who forces them into a series of brutal challenges where the stakes include the lives of the innocent, as well as their own.
The trailer looks like a school project. Lucas Till, ang cute mo pa naman sa Hannah Montana movie hahaha!
London is in chaos. A military cargo plane has crashed leaving its highly classified contents strewn across the city. Completely unaware London is in lockdown, Charlie (Noel Clarke) and Shelley (Antonia Campbell-Hughes), accompanied by best friends Mark (Colin O’Donoghue) and Nikki (Laura Haddock), are at Storage 24 dividing up their possessions after a recent break-up. Suddenly, the power goes off. Trapped in a dark maze of endless corridors, a mystery predator is hunting them one by one. In a place designed to keep things in, how do you get out?
With a tagline like that (will their first contact be their last?) I think I’ll skip this movie.
So that’s the lowdown on films coming out this month. Which ones are you excited for?:) I’ll be doing this monthly so keep checking back for updates!
