I know a few people who refuse to watch Bollywood movies, but will happily watch an Aamir Khan film, and so his next, Dhoom 3, will no doubt be one of the biggest films of the year, if not all time, in India. Especially since we’ve been kind of deprived of good films in mainstream Hindi films this year.
Today the full programme for the 57th BFI London Film Festival was announced, which runs in the city from 9th to 20th October, mainly in Leicester Square and the BFI’s home on Southbank, but also featuring screenings all over London.
The new trailer for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire premiered at Comic-Con at the weekend, and it’s now online.
The second installment in The Hunger Games trilogy seeings victors of the 74th Hunger Games, Katniss and Peeta on their victory tour, as well as the annoucement of the next Hunger Games, which being the 75th, will be extra special.
The follow up to last year’s The Hunger Games brings back Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen, Josh Hutcherson as Peeta, Liam Hemsworth as Gale, as well as Elizabeth Banks, Woody Harrelson, Stanley Tucci, Donald Sutherland, Lenny Kravitz and Willow Shields all reprising their respective roles. It also introduces many new characters, new additions to the cast including Jena Malone, Sam Claflin, Alan Ritchson and Jeffrey Wright.
I am incredibly excited for Catching Fire. It releases November 22nd 2013.
The trailer for Martin Scorsese’s next, The Wolf of Wall Street, has been released online. Based on the memoirs of a New York stock broker in late 80s/90s, it stars Leonardo DiCaprio as Jordan Belfort, marking the fifth collaboration between the director and actor. Also starring in the crima-drama-comedy, is Matthew McConnaughey, Jonah Hill, Jean Dujardin, Kyle Chandler, Jon Favreau, Cristin Milioti, and Joanna Lumley amongst many others.
It seems like an all too obvious, and a rather strange choice for Leo to follow The Great Gastby with, but I quite enjoyed the trailer, and am looking forward to it.
The Wolf of Wall Street releases November 15th 2013 in the USA, and 17th January 2014 in the UK.
Excel Entertainment latest comic caper Fukrey, a hilarious tale of four young, hapless ‘nobodies’ [‘Fukreys’] is releasing this Friday, 14th June 2013.
Inspired by the upcoming The Hangover Part III, and the scene from the trailer with the giraffe, Warner Bros. and Think Jam have come up with a little game called Giraffe Or Duck. It’s pretty obvious what the point of the game is, make the giraffe duck or… you know.
Click here to play. After playing a couple of times, I can’t do better than 8 bridges.
The Hangover Part III releases on May 24th 2013.
The final poster for the upcoming Superman film, Man Of Steel, was released day on Yahoo! Movies. The film is directed by Zack Snyder, and produced by Christopher Nolan. It stars Henry Cavill, as Clark Kent/Superman, and Amy Adams as Lois Lane, as well as Kevin Costner, Diana Lane, Russell Crowe and Michael Shannon as Zod.
I do wonder if its supposedly to look that blurry… The flying shots in the trailer do have a similar feel to them. I read somewhere they’re supposed to feel ‘raw’. Can’t remember who said that though.
The film is out on June 14th.
This is my list of my top ten movies from this year. It changed a lot while deciding on the 10, and will probably change after I’ve posted it, but at one point, this was the list I thought was perfect.
10. Shutter Island
8. Despicable Me
6. A Single Man
5. Toy Story 3
4. Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows Part I
3. Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World
1. The Social Network
The list changed (twice) while putting the post together. There is also a lot I haven’t had the chance to see yet that I would have like to, so obviously, the list doesn’t include those…
The only Bollywood movie that would have been on there would be My Name Is Khan, and probably would have been number 1. So Shutter Island got lucky I guess.
The next five would have or could have included (not in any particular order): Brothers, The Killer Inside Me, Kick-Ass, The Ghost (Writer), The Town
Really wanted to include, but couldn’t because they haven’t released in the UK yet: Black Swan, Never Let Me Go, The King’s Speech, 127 Hours.
Seven is a bit of an odd number for a ‘Top’ list, but I couldn’t think of ten movies I wanted on my list, and 5 just seemed short.
4) Band Baaja Baaraat
3) Anjaana Anjaani
1) My Name Is Khan
