Upcoming Fall/Winter Movies

This summer saw the release of hits like Prince of Persia, The Karate Kid, Toy Story 3, Inception, Piranha 3D and action packed movies like The Expendables, The A-Team, The Other Guys, Salt ...... As well as disappointments such as Iron Man 2, The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, Knight and Day, Jonah Hex and Sex and the City 2.

So there wouldn’t be an Avatar this year .....

BUT .......

There is hope as movies rolling in the coming months are promising and should deliver quality entertainment from the Adventure/Fantasy – Musical – Action – Thriller – Sci-fi – Comedy – Drama (All Kinds) Animation – Horror .... and a Western!

Sequels and remakes are also due to open in the following months; first up is “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps” which follows the 1987-Academy Award winning film “Wall Street”; and others such as Paranormal Activity 2, Saw 7(aka Saw 3D), Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1, Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, Tron Legacy and Little Fockers (or Meet the Parkers 3). Oh! And Jackass 3D too.

So the awesome cast Stallone lined up won’t surface for a while but in the Action-Thriller section movies like the suspense filled "My Soul to Take", sci-fi directed "Skyline", Gangster-fueled "Stone", "Faster", then .... "Red" and the drama driven "Black Swan".

Movie veterans you could also expect to see a few remakes like the drama “The Next Three Days”, thriller – “The Tourist”, the Western – “True Grit” and War-Thriller “The Debt”.

On the Animated font, three movies are expected to open real big and exciting too. “Yogi Bear” is back to the Big Screen, also the nearly forgotten Rapunzel in “Tangled” and finally “Megamind” which is meant to blow you away.

Two Musicals (yes Musicals) are also expected to make it to the big screen but not in its entirety; first is “Burlesque” which brings two musical icons together in Cher & Christina Aguilera; and “Country Song” which brings Gwyneth Paltrow & Tim McGraw together.

Dramas are also represented by the sports-driven “Secretariat”, then “The Social Network” which follows the behind-the-scenes story of Facebook, “Conviction”, romantic “Hereafter” and “Blue Valentine”, also the political drama “Fair Game” and the survival themed biopic “127 Hours”.

And finally giving you a reason to smile – Comedy. First is “It’s Kind of a Funny Story” which is expected to be somewhat funny; then “Company Men” which includes Ben Affleck, Kevin Costner, Tommy Lee Jones and Craig T. Nelson; also from the guys that brought you “Hangover” is ....... “Due Date” with Robert Downey Jr., Zach Galifianakis and Jamie Foxx ...... nuf said. Also there is “Morning Glory” which is a meant to be hilarious; Drug-fuelled “Love & Other Drugs” and finally “How Do You Know” which is a sports-esque movie with Paul Rudd, Reese Witherspoon, Owen Wilson and Jack Nicholson.
