Box Office Breakdown (August 22)

This weekend  will be filled with tears or excitement, depending on what movie your planning on seeing. If you don’t know which movie to see, hopefully this will make it a lot easier. Here are the movies being release this weekend:

1. Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.

Dwight is hunted down by the only woman he ever loved, Ava Lord, and then watches his life go straight to hell. Chronologically, this story takes place prior to “The Big Fat Kill” featured in the film Frank Miller’s Sin City and explains how Dwight came to have a dramatically different face. Based on the graphic by Frank Miller who wrote and co-directed with Robert Rodriguez A dame to Kill For stars Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Josh Brolin, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Rosario Dawson, Bruce Willis and Eva Green.

If you’re looking for violent, bloody, exciting movie to see this weekend this is exactly that, I would advice to watch the first Sin City film first. They are a lot of die-hard fans of the novel who been dying for a sequel. Does it have what it takes to take the number 1 spot away from TMNT we’ll see.

2. If I Stay

Life changes in an instant for young Mia Hall after a car accident, killing her family puts her in a coma. During an out-of-body experience, she have to decide if she should go with her family or stay and live a life more difficult than she should ever imagine. If I Stay follow the trend of popular YA novels that being adapted in to movies. Check out my thought on the book at A penny for my thoughts (If I Stay). Directed by R.J Cutler and screenplay with the author of the book Gayle Forman and Shauna Cross, who also wrote the screenplay for What to expect when you expecting and Whip It. If I Stay stars Chloe Grace Moretz, Jamie Blackley and Mireille Enos.

If I Stay is a really emotion story, it has something that all young adult can relate to. It has heart, family love. If your planning on seeing this film make sure bring a box of tissues. Does it have what it takes to go up against TMNT and The Guardians, yes it does and it wouldn’t be a surprise if If I Stay comes out on top this weekend? 

There it is, the top two movies coming out this weekend, will they be enough to trump TMNT and The Guardians out of the top two? We’ll have to wait and see. In the meanwhile comment below the  what movie you’re going to see and which ones you think is going to take the top spots.

Fall into Winter 2014

Hello to the few people who still read my blog, thank you for reading. So I’ve been MIA for 2 months now, which is something a new blogger should not do. I’m sorry but I’m back (until my semester starts) and I have a lot I want to blog about.

Here goes,

Fall is my favorite time of the year which is pretty ironic because the two places I’ve lived all my life only have one season which is summer. Nevertheless, I love the idea of fall, pumpkin pie, sweatshirts, cooler weather, leaves changing colors and most of all the best movies are release during the fall.  The movies on this list are some of the year’s most anticipating movies, some you may not know -as yet- and others you can’t stop thinking about and is dying to see.

1. Gone Girl (October 3) With his wife disappearance on their fifth anniversary Nick Dunne (Ben Affleck) becomes the focus of an intense media eye. As the police investigates further into his wife, Amy (Rosamund Pike) disappearance, the media turns on him when it’s suspected that he may not be innocent. We all know the book written by Gillian Flynn by the same name and most of us read it and hate that we love it. Gillian Flynn screen-write the movie along with David Fincher whose directing. With an alternative ending book-readers and movie-goers are going to love this movie. I can definitely see this in the running for best picture and actor at 2015 Oscars.

2. Interstellar (November 5)         Interstellar is definitely the years most anticipated movie, it’s the first movie Matthew McConaughey stars in, coming off his big Oscar win for Dallas Buyers Club earlier this year. Along with McConaughey, the movie stars a mass of other Oscar winners such as: Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastian, Michael Caine just to name a few. Interstellar is about a space travel story about a group of astronaut trying to find an inhabitable planet to replace Earth because Earth is on the brink of extinction. The movies written by Christopher and Jonathan Nolan and directed by Christopher Nolan who we all know from the Dark Knight trilogy and Inception. Nolan has yet to win a Oscar he’s been snob too many times and this might be his lucky year.

3. Exodus God & Kings (December 12)   Following the trend of religious movie comes Exodus which is the name of the second book in the bible and it gives an account of Moses leading the Israelite slaves to freedom from Egypt. Christian Bale plays Moses, a role that is a long way from the Dark Knight, Joel Edgeton plays the pharaoh Rhamses, Aaron Paul as Joshua and Sigourney Weaver as Tyua. Director and Co-Writer Ridley Scott who is well know for movies like Prometheus and Gladiator, uses a state of the art visual effects and 3D immersion to bring this story to life.

4. Fury (October 17)

 

Fury follows a five men American tank crew in Europe on the final days of World War 2. Fury stars a mass of hunks such as, Brad Pitt, Shia LaBeouf, Logan Lerman, Michael Pena just to name a few. It was written and directed by David Ayer who is know for Sabotage and End of Watch. The release was initially set for November 14 but was moved up to October 17. By the trailer Fury looks like the Saving Private Ryan of the 21st century which are pretty big shoes to fill but that’s how promising it seems for now.

5. FoxCathcher (November 14)

FoxCatcher is based on the true story of Mark Schultz, an Olympic wrestler whose relationship with sponsor John du Pont and brother Dave Schultz would lead to unlikely circumstances. It stars Channing Tatum as Mark Schultz, Mark Ruffalo as Dave Schultz and Steve Carell as John du Pont.  This movie isn’t a blockbuster and it probably wont make a big profit but it’s going one of the years most critically acclaimed movie. Steve Carell is one of Hollywood’s most diverse and underestimate actor.  Do I hear Oscar bells for Best and Supporting actor, too early to tell.

Noticeable Mentions

1. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1

2. Dumb & Dumber To

3. Inherent Vice

4. The Hobbit

  These movies will definitely  make fall 100% better.  Which movie are you looking for too this fall?

Battle for the Box Office (May 9)

This weekend is going to be filled with laughter, starting with:

1. Legend of Oz: Dorothy’s Return

.

Dorothy wakes up in post-tornado Kansas, only to be whisked back to Oz to try to save her old friends the Scarecrow, the Lion, the Tin Man and Glinda from a devious new villain, the Jester. Wiser the owl, Marshal Mallow, China Princess and Tugg the tugboat join Dorothy on her latest magical journey through the colorful landscape of Oz to restore order and happiness to Emerald City.

Honestly I just saw this movie during a commercial, and it looks really funny. Lea Michelle voices Dorothy, I haven’t any songs from the movie as yet but Lea Michelle has really nice voice. I read that this movie was suppose to come out in 2013 but it was push forward to this year. I think I would watch it if the Neighbors wasn’t coming out this weekend. But its a good movie for the kids to go see.

2. Neighbors

A couple with a newborn baby face unexpected difficulties after they are forced to live next to a fraternity house.

Seth Rogen writes and stars in this movie and the trailers looks hilarious. I love Seth Rogen he’s a comedic genius.
I’m definitely going to see this movie. And its not a kids movie.

I think Neighbors going to take the top from Spiderman which I’ve heard was amazing. Legend of Oz: Dorothy’s Return is going to debut at 3rd or 4th.

What movies are most excited to see this weekend?

Battle for the Box Office (April 18)

Happy Good Friday, Hope everyone have a good Easter Break. These are the movies opening this Holy weekend.

1. Heaven is for real (April 16)

image

During emergency surgery, a young boy (Colton) slips from consciousness and almost dies. Afterwards he claims that he visited heaven. His family and the members of his small town do not believe him until his stories identify people who have passed away.  This is the perfect movie to see this weekend it opened on Wednesday and made over $3 million. It’s inspiring and uplifting, its based on a book inspired by true events. The trailer looks good and if I’m going to see a movies this weekend, I would definitely see this one.

2. Transcendence (April 18)

image

A science fiction thriller film about a computer scientist, Evelyn Caster, who uploads her husband Will’s brain into a computer after he has been assassinated by terrorists. Both Evelyn and Will work together to create a technological singularity for creating a world where computers can transcend the abilities of the human brain. I watched all trailer but I’m torn with this movie, I don’t know if I like it or not. Its sound cool but it doesn’t feel original, it centers on computers rebelling on humanity and its been done before. It probably ends with the unplugging Will just joking. It stars Johnny Depp, Rebecca Hall and Morgan Freeman. This movie can go either way but I don’t think it can take the number one spot away from Captain American.

3. A Haunted House 2 (April 18)

image

Marlon Wayans stars as a man plagued by paranormal events in the sequel spoof. This movie was suppose to be release earlier this year but they moved the date. The date should have moved to never. I just don’t get it, its the same plot with a bigger budget and hopefully better jokes. Mainly its just wrong timing for this movie. But we’ll see how well it does.

Sorry this post is so late.

Last week I was correct with Captain American holding on to the number one spot Transcendence seems like the movie to take that spot but I’m not sure, its going to.

Which movies are you planning to see this weekend? What do you think of Transcendence?

Announcement!!

Its 10:19pm as I write this post and I just read that there are rumor on the interwebs that the The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 trailer will premiere on the MTV Movie Awards airing April 13, 2014. Ahhhh!!! I’m freaking out at the moment I can’t wait I hope there are true. 🙌🙋🙋🙌🙌🙋🙆🙋🙌.

While I’m here lets do a box office break down of the films being released today.

1. Oculus

A woman tries to exonerate her brother, who was convicted of murder, by proving that the crime was committed by a supernatural phenomenon. This is a horror film I think its the first horror flick release this year. I’m not a fan of horror films because I’m get scared really quickly, yeah yeah I know I’m a scary-pants. ( haha no one say that anymore).
But if your looking for a good scare you should check this movie out.

2.Rio 2

In Rio 2, we find Blu, Jewel and their three kids living the perfect domesticated life in that magical city. When Jewel decides the kids need to learn to live like real birds, she insists the family venture into the Amazon. As Blu tries to fit in with his new neighbors, he worries he may lose Jewel and the kids to the call of the wild. OK so to me no sequel is as good as it predecessor when it comes to animations that it example Despicable Me 2. The trailer looks OK I would probably take my little brother who is 4 to go see it but I’m going to watch Captain America.

On the topic of Captain America it dominated the box office last weekend and I don’t think these two movie can knock it from the number 1 spot. We’ll see how it plays out.

Have a great weekend!!!!
