We’re already a week into November, but seeing as most movies in my list will be released at the end of the month, I don’t think I’m too late with this post.

Gravity

Gravity

I went to see Gravity at the IMAX yesterday and I loved it! I’ve been looking forward to this movie for ages, trying to avoid all the trailers leading up to it. I won’t say anything really about it expect: it’s definitely the type of movie you need to see on an as large as possible screen.

Release Date: Friday 8 November

The Hunger Games - Catching Fire

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

This looks good! I’ve read all the books and really enjoyed the first movie. I can’t wait to see what they make of this one.

Release Date: Thursday 21 November

The Family

The Family

I hadn’t actually heard about The Family, until I saw a trailer of it last week. It’s directed by Luc Besson (Leon, The Fifth Element) and stars Robert de Niro, Michelle Pfeiffer, Dianna Agron and John D’Leo as a mafia family who through the witness protection program relocate to France.

Release Date: Friday 22 November

Carrie

Carrie

I’m still not convinced we need a remake of Carrie, but the casting of both Chloe Grace Moretz and Julianne Moore just sounds so spot on!

Release Date: Friday 29 November

Saving Mr Banks

Saving Mr Banks

I’m a huge Disney fa, so obviously I’m curious to see how Saving Mr Banks turns out. It stars Tom Hanks as Walt Disney and Emma Thompson as P.L. Travers, the author of Mary Poppins.

Release Date: Friday 29 November

Other movie releases:

I can’t believe it’s September already! This post was actually meant for a week ago, but as usual it’s been super busy. These are the movies coming out this month that I’m looking forward to and most probably will try to see in the cinema. At the end of the post you can find a list of other movies coming out as well. Which ones are you most looking forward to?

About Time

About Time

About Time is a romantic comedy with time travel written and directed by Richard Curtis, the guy behind Love Actually, Four Weddings And A Funeral and Notting Hill. Love Actually is one of my favourite romantic comedies, so I’m really curious to see how this slightly sci-fi slanted one turns out!

Release Date: Wednesday 4th September

Riddick

Riddick

I always thought Pitch Black was an interesting movie, but although its sequel had bigger budget, bigger cast, etc, it never felt like it was in the same universe. Riddick feels much more like the original… dark and gloomy planet, creepy aliens and Vin Diesel kicking ass.

Release Date: Wednesday 4th September

Rush

Rush

I used to watch a lot of F1 as a kid, so really curious to see how Rush turns out. I’ve heard quite some good things about it already!

Release Date: Friday 13th September

In A World

In A World…

In a world where one underachieving vocal coach (Lake Bell) is motivated by her father, the king of movie-trailer voice-overs, to pursue her aspirations of becoming a voiceover star. This looks like so much fun!

Release Date: Friday 13th September

White House Down

White House Down

This is the second “White House being attacked” movie this year, but I think it might be the better one. If “better” means more explosions, more cheese and more action, that is. I think Olympus Has Fallen took itself a little bit too serious, while White House Down looks much more over-the-top and fun.

Release Date: Friday 13th September

What movies are you most excited for this month? Let me know in the comments!

Star Trek Into Darkness

Star Trek Into Darkness

I’m so excited for this! I’ve tried to stay away from most of the trailers, but I know it looks amazing. I loved the first Star Trek movie despite all the lens flares and I can’t wait to see how this sequel turns out. I’m still quite pleased with myself that I managed to book tickets to the IMAX on opening’s night next week. This is going to be awesome!

Release Date: Thursday 9th May

The Great Gatsby

The Great Gatsby

I never really understood the lure of The Great Gatsby. I remember hearing about it as a teen and expecting it to be the most romantic book ever. Once I actually started reading though, I remember being bored out of my mind. I wonder what I’d think of the book if I read it now though… Seeing the trailers for the movie version makes me think I might have been wrong as a teen. Or is it just that everything Baz Luhrman touches looks epic and grand?

Release Date: Thursday 16th May

Fast and Furious 6

Fast and Furious 6

I’ve always enjoyed the Fast and Furious movies. They’re big not-particularly-bright action movies, but always a lot of fun. This latest instalment seems to be giving us more of the same: fast cars, awesome races, cool heists.

Release Date: Friday 17th May

Epic

Epic

Part of me still thinks this looks like a 2013 version of Fern Gully, but it still might be good.

Release Date: Wednesday 22nd May

The Hangover Part III

The Hangover Part III

The gang is back in Vegas. What could possibly go wrong?

Release Date: Thursday 23rd May

Others:

The past few weeks have been so busy! I didn’t even notice last month that I didn’t do a Coming Soon post for March. It’s a couple days late, but I definitely wanted to do one for April!

A Late Quartet

A Late Quartet

This one isn’t really my cup of tea, but I’m including it cause I know my dad will be reading this post and I think it will be something for him (*waves* Hi Dad!). It’s about a classical string quartet approaching their 25th anniversary, starring Philip Seymour Hoffman, Christopher Walken, Catherine Keener and Imogen Poots.

Release Date: Friday 5th April

Oblivion

Oblivion

I loved the one trailer I saw for Oblivion. Tom Cruise, an interesting possibly twisty story and gorgeous scifi visuals. It looked like the type of movie that could be spoiled though by seeing the wrong type of trailer, so after that first one I’ve stayed away from any videos/clips/etc. Fingers crossed all my effort was for something.

Release Date: Friday 12th April

The Place Beyong The Pines

The Place Beyond The Pines

Before writing this post, I hadn’t actually looked up what this movie was about. All I knew was it starred both Ryan Gosling and Bradley Cooper, meaning I of course have to go see it. It’s about a motorcycle-stunt-rider-turned-bank-robber (Gosling) as a way to provide for his lover (Eva Mendes) and their newborn child. It puts him on a collision course with an ambitious rookie cop (Cooper) navigating a department ruled by a corrupt detective (Ray Liotta).

Release Date: Friday 12th April

Olympus Has Fallen

Olympus Has Fallen

This looks so over-the-top-ridiculous, but I so want to see it! It stars Gerard Butler as the ex secret service member who’s the only one not captured when the White House is attacked. Aaron Echkart plays the President, while Morgan Freeman plays the Speaker of the House.

Release Date: Wednesday 17th April

Iron Man 3

Iron Man 3

Suit up!

Release Date: Friday 26 April

Wow, January went fast! I managed to watch 3 of my 5 Coming Soon movies from last month (Les Mis, Django Unchained and Lincoln), I still want to watch Zero Dark Thirty and Gangster Squad. Which movies did you watch in January? Here are the 5 movies I’m looking forward to this month:

Warm Bodies

Warm Bodies

Zom-rom-com: a zombie romantic comedy. Warm Bodies looks like a lot of fun and a different take than most zombie movies. What happens when a zombie falls in love with a girl?

Release Date: Friday 8th February

Wreck It Ralph

Wreck-It Ralph

I’m still a bit annoyed that Wreck-it Ralph is only now being released in the UK, while the US and a ton of other countries got it 4 months ago. Luckily I managed to see it while in the Netherlands during Christmas and it’s definitely a movie worth seeing in the cinema. If you like games, you’ll love the amount of easter eggs in the background; I caught a couple of them, but I’m pretty sure I missed tons!

Release Date: Friday 8th February

Beautiful Creatures

Beautiful Creatures

This looks like it’s jumping on the Twilight wagon, but I can’t help but like the style and feel of this movie. The trailer looks slightly cheesy, but there’s a vibe there that reminds me of The Craft (which I loved) mixed with Southern Gothic magic.

Release Date: Wednesday 13th February

A Good Day To Die Hard

A Good Day To Die Hard

Yippie ki-yay! Need I say more?

Release Date: Thursday 14th February

Cloud Atlas

Cloud Atlas

Cloud Atlas is another movie I already got to see while in the Netherlands. I didn’t love love love it as I was expecting, but I still really enjoyed it. It’s an epic movie with 6 entwined story lines in different eras and I loved how the stories unfolded.

Release Date: Friday 22nd February

Back in July in one of my Trailerrific Thursday posts I featured the first trailer for Life of Pi. I still haven’t read the book on which it is based, but I’m so looking forward to see this movie. Well, some of you won’t have to wait any longer, cause it’s being released in cinemas in the US this week (21st of November to be exact)! In the UK we’ll have to wait for another month, which isn’t too bad considering certain other movies (*cough* Wreck-It-Ralph *cough, cough* Cloud Atlas).

Life of Pi is based on the best selling novel of the same name and is directed by Ang Lee. Visually I think this movie is going to be stunning, just take a look at the trailer:

I’m still wondering whether or not I should read the book first or go into the movie completely blind (well, as blind as you can be, after having watching the trailer, seen the posters, etc). Have you read the book? What would you suggest?

Thanks to 20th Century Fox, I’ve also got some movie stills and set photos to share with you:

I haven’t completely gotten the hang of Pinterest yet; it’s great to discover cool new things, but I find it a bit messy to see what you’ve viewed already. Still it’s interesting to see how different companies are using it and pinning their own stuff. The Les Misérables movie is using it in a pretty interesting way. They’ve got their own Les Misérables Movie account with 5 different boards: Official Stills, Les Mis-inspired Recipes, Les Mis-inspired Fashion, Behind the Scenes and Historic France.

The latest pin on the Official Stills board is the new poster for the movie. It looks gorgeous (and of course harks back to the musical’s poster):

It’s a lot of fun browsing around on the other boards. I like how they haven’t stuck to only stuff directly linked to the movie, but are also pinning things that are inspired by it. For instance, I love this military jacket that they pinned (“For the Inspector Javert in you”):

I can’t wait till the Les Mis movie comes out. Everything I’ve seen from it so far looks great and I think it’s going to be an awesome adaption. Here’s a small confession though: I’ve never actually seen the musical… should I go watch it before the movie is released?

This isn’t really a proper post; you won’t find an entire review here. But… I got to see The Last Airbender a couple of weeks ago, and wrote up a review for Bleeding Cool. They are one of my favourite sites, with news, reviews and more on comics and movies. So head on over to Bleeding Cool for my review of The Last Airbender!

I know I’ve already blogged about a couple of trailers for Scott Pilgrim vs The World, but I can’t help it, I think it looks great! This latest clip shows a bit of one of Scott’s fights against Lucas Lee, Ramona’s second Evil Ex Boyfriend.

I’m quite looking forward to the Iron Man sequel and I always love it when movies do some viral-y/ARG-y stuff to promote them. So far we haven’t seen that much in the Iron Man viral besides a bunch of mysterious websites, but I’m hoping now the release date is in sight we’ll get to see more.

The latest website is for AccuTech, a research and development company and a subsidiary of Stark Industries. Their message is that they’ll be premiering their latest breakthrough, the HazTech Exoskeleton, at the Stark Expo 2010, which is happening on the 7th of May… the release date of Iron Man 2 in the US.

I’m curious to see what else they’ll be showing and whether they’ll go into the ARG area like The Dark Knight and Tron Legacy.
