March

Oz the Great & Powerful

Prediction: Looks promising

Red Dawn

Prediction: Probably will be the same old formula, but should be entertaining

April

Oblivion

Prediction: Even if it sucks, it should be interesting or at least entertaining, it’s win-win

Seven Psychopaths

Prediction: It’s a winner! Why? 1) Woody Harrelson, 2) Christopher Walken, 3) It’s looks awesome

Also watch out for the Carrie remake – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RaHzUMq8iaM

May

Iron Man 3

Prediction: Looks very dark…

Evil Dead (Remake)

Prediction: Where’s Bruce? No really… ooh wait this looks kinda freaky actually 🙂

Fast and Furious 6

Prediction: Another one? Only the big names are gonna save this one…

Also watch out for the Texas Chainsaw 3D (yet another scray movie remake) – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GqCe2pDfICE

And don’t forget about Stoker – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=brjtL-2kE9A

June

Man of Steel 

Prediction: Oooh dark… plus Christopher Nolan (producer) and Zack Snyder (300) are involved in it

After Earth

Prediction: Should be pretty cool, starring Will Smith and son, Jaden

Star Trek – Into Darkness 

Prediction: Never really got into old Star Trek (*gasp*), so the reboot since the previous film has me hooked 🙂

July

World War Z 

Prediction: Bad CGI aside, it should be pretty cool, even if it doesn’t look anything like I’d have pictured the book.

The Lone Ranger

Prediction: Looks pretty damn cool

Despicable Me 2 

Prediction: Laughs and fun all around

August

Pacific Rim

Prediction: Prepare to be blown away…

September

Elysium

Prediction: Since this isn’t really a trailer, it’s kinda difficult to say, but if Neill Blomkamp bought us District 9 with $30m, imagine what he can do with $120m and Matt Damon?

The mystery around this film reminds me of the mysterious build up and viral campaign of “fakeverts” and the rest that he did with District 9. Less is known about this film that some films coming out in 2014.

Must See Movies 2012 #6: Frankenweenie, Moonrise Kingdom and more

Week 1: How I Spent My Summer Vacation (aka Get the Gringo)

This movie, starring Mel Gibson as a career criminal is due out in South Africa on the 5th of October. Caught by the Mexican authorities, he is thrown in a rough & tough prison, where a ten year old kid teaches him the ropes.

The sad thing is that this movie was already out in March in the USA and is already out on DVD there (since July), so most people have seen it already, probably. If not, give it a go…

IMDB Moviemeter: Top 500

Tomatometer: 80%

Week 2: Taken 2

The sequel to one of the more entertaining action flicks that has come out in recent years, Mills (Liam Neeson) and his wife are taken hostage while on holiday in Istanbul. Should be good fun, but the Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer rating of 11% has me worried.

IMDB Moviemeter: 19

Tomatometer: 11%

Week 3: Moonrise Kingdom 

I am really not sure where to start with this movie. If I tell you that it’s about two 12 year old kids who fall in love and run away together, you’re probably gonna give me weird looks, but that’d be understandable as that doesn’t sum it up properly. Directed by Wes Anderson (Royal Tenenbaums, Darjeeling Unlimited) and starring Bruce Willis, Edward Norton and Bill Murray, this must be one of the most anticipated movies of the year.

IMDB Moviemeter: 2

Tomatometer: 94% (Certified fresh)

Week 4: Frankenweenie

Directed by Tim Burton and not featuring Johnny Depp or Helena Bonham Carter (c-c-c-c-combobreaker), this black & white, stop motion film in 3D is about a boy who brings his dead dog back to life with dire consequences. Should be good pre-Halloween fun.

IMDB Moviemeter: Top 500

Tomatometer: 81%

In Case There’s Nothing Else 

Week 1: Premium Rush

IMDB Moviemeter: Top 500

Tomatometer: 75% (Certified Fresh)

Week 4: The Campaign

IMDB Moviemeter: Top 500

Tomatometer: 67%
