Paul Conroy (Reynolds) is working out in Iraq when he wakes up to find himself buried alive in a coffin. With a lighter, torch and mobile phone with him. Everyone’s worst nightmare being alive in a coffin . . .
As it coming up to September I thought that a new monthly feature on my blog is going to contain the up and coming releases for the UK in that month. This would therefore be the films that I would also hope to have the chance of seeing at my local Cineworld cinema . . . obviously if a limited release happens, then I struggle to see the smaller films. I think we should now start to see some better films coming out after the so called summer blockbuster season is now over as we enter September.
We see a wide range of genre’s opening in the month of September, so you really do have quite a broad choice of films to choose every week. This is something that has to be better than the summer which seemed to be just comic book film after comic book film . . . which I do love but it’s nice to have some different types of films out for a bit more variety!
Vampire films are still classed as being very in at the moment, although I wouldn’t complain with Colin Farrell being a vampire! But this one is going for the mix between comedy and horror, which we don’t really see very often. But not long to wait to find out how this film is!
Hal Jordan is a test pilot, who one night is chosen by an alien with a green ring to replace him. Along with a green lantern he gets superpowers and becomes part of a squadron who are to keep the galaxy at peace.
As we are entering June, the summer films are going to be coming out thick and fast over the next couple of months. Let’s have a look and see what we have to look forward to! As with most summer films, a lot seem to be based around comic books. We have another installment from X-Men (hopefully doing better than Wolverine) and the much anticipated Captain America: The First Avenger, which is the last film in the build up to ‘The Avengers’ which is due out next year. A couple of comedies thrown in. But let’s face it, this summer is about the final Harry Potter film, part 2 of the Deathly Hallows. The end of the franchise after 10 years since it all began.
It doesn’t seem that many out and out romantic comedies are going for a summer release (unless of course I have missed them). Definitely more for the action and adventure angle this summer!
What films are you looking forward to most this summer?
When Michael Taylor (Reynolds) is heading home for his sisters graduation and seeing his rather estranged family, a tragic accident occurs which sees his mother (Roberts) die in a car crash. Through this tragedy we are taken on a journey back to Michael’s childhood and why he does not get along with his father (Dafoe).
The newest poster for Buried has been released over the past couple of days to go along with 4 others which had already been released. I think this really looks like it could be a very good film!
Although it is not due for release until 2011, the first four posters for “Green Lantern” have been released. (It looks as though this is going to have a big build up). I have to admit that I have not really been keeping up to date on this film and did not realize Mark Strong was going to be in it – this has me now very excited for this film.
After composing the list of top 10 young actors which I used 30 as the cut off age. I decided to make a list of in my opinion in the top 10 actors in their 30s. This actually proved rather difficult to come up with as quite a lot of current actors in their 30s are very talented and doing a lot of great work. I am sure there is still a lot to come from some of these actors as well.
A new romantic comedy which I actually enjoyed more than I thought that I would to be honest. Yes I like Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds but was not too sure on this movie before I saw it.
This just looks funny from the poster . . .
I think there will be so many spin-off’s occuring for all the different characters. Which is great
Ryan Reynolds’ will reprise his role as X-men mutant Deadpool after landing his own spin-off in the comic book film franchise.
Reynolds starred alongside Hugh Jackman in the fourth movie, X-Men Origins: Wolverine; and studio bosses at Twentieth Century Fox have already begun development on a film to flesh out his character’s story, reports Variety.
The actor will take over the big screen as Deadpool and alter-ego Wade Wilson, a cancer-stricken mercenary who becomes an indestructible mutant thanks to a genetic experiment.
Just last week Wolverine director Gavin Hood sparked reports Reynolds is set to star in his own X-Men movie, revealing he hopes to chronicle Deadpool’s superhero background.
He told reporters, “Ryan Reynolds is extremely charismatic… and he can combine action and humour.
“The creators of these characters have all created characters that could all have their own origin stories. Hopefully fans will enjoy Wolverine and more will be made.”
