Catching Fire Teaser Trailer

The Hunger Games is probably one of the more enjoyable teen movies, and despite it’s teen focus I enjoyed it quite a lot.

The books are an easy read, but they deal with very adult themes and they have a lot of very interesting concepts. It is for this reason I am interested in the second film.

Here is the Catching Fire Teaser Trailer:

With Jennifer Lawrence now an Academy Award winning actress, and the addition of some more heavy hitting actors, I suspect Catching Fire is going to be a little more adult.

What say you? Keen or not?

Kick-Ass 2 Trailer

So, Kick-Ass just happened to be one of the big surprises of 2010. I do really appreciate it wasn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but I really enjoyed the shock value, dark humour and the original yet ridiculous premise of the film. It really was something new, and it had some of the best action sequences on film in a very long time!

Kick-Ass 2 therefor has a lot to live up to! The standards are really high, and to be honest this first trailer does not set my world on fire. I’m worried at this point.

Oh, can you tell which character is Jim Carrey?

Prometheus coming June

Fingers crossed that Ridley Scott’s Prometheus is as good as this new trailer looks to do…

I love Science Fiction, and Alien is one of my favourite movies of all time. It’s good to see this kind of horror is back!

The films of 2012

Critics like to have their top tens to look out for in the year to come. This is in some ways my top ten without being a top ten, because it’s not even the films I think will be the top films of 2012. Anyway it’s my thoughts on the films you should look out for this year.

The Hunger Games – 22 March

Based on a book, The Hunger Games is set in a dystopian future where a lottery selects 24 young citizens to complete to a fight to the death. If I didn’t know about the book I would probably stay clear given the plot description, but it is a very popular book and it should make a very decent movie at least.

 

Prometheus – 7 June

This is my first absolutely must see film for this year. The Ridley Scott Alien prequel that’s not strictly a prequel is the dark horse for film of the year! Set before the events of the first original Alien film, the crew of the Prometheus are searching for clues to our beginning, except what they find might be our end. The return of true Sci-Fi Horror is greatly anticipated!

 

The Dictator – 7 June

Sacha Baron Cohen is back! There really is no point telling you about this movie, just look up the trailer and watch. If you don’t like Sacha, you won’t like this. It remains to be seen if Sacha has still got it, because his last film wasn’t all that.

The Dark Knight Rises – 19 July

Well this is it. The film just about everyone will want to see. Can Christopher Nolan finish his Batman trilogy on a high? Was Bain the right choice as a villain? Will audiences even understand what he says? Regardless Nolan is the biggest name in Hollywood right now. Every actor wants to be in his movies and there is a very good reason for that. He delivers blockbusters with more depth and character than most films could ever hope to conjure, lets hope it continues.

 

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey – 26 December

Part one of two, this is the prequel to Lord of the Rings, based on the book of the same name. It’s a wonderful story, and being split into two movies means they have likely kept most of the content. Will it be a good movie? Well, if Lord of the Rings is anything to go by it might just be the biggest movie of the year.

There are definitely more films to look out for this year, and I have no doubt that a number of unknown movies will surprise. It is by its nature a fact that only very well advertised films make a year-long list because usually smaller budget movies stay under the radar until close to release. Regardless, I have high hopes for the above.

Prometheus trailer lands!

For anyone following the news on Ridley Scott’s new film Prometheus you will be very glad to know the trailer is finally here … and yes it is a Prequal to Alien, no doubt about it.

Scott still claims there are no actual Aliens in the movie, and that it is not specifically a Prequal but a new story. I’ll let you make up your own mind, but I cannot wait for it!
