This time, we get to that period of the year when we are most available to go to the movies, so please make sure you go and see the next films, they are really worth it (or not, if you don’t like certain genres). But take a look, just in case!
OBLIVION (12 April)
Tom Cruise explores science-fiction after almost a decade without doing films of that genre (Minority Report in 2002 and War of the Worlds in 2005 were the last ones). In this new adventure, it seems like he goes to a different planet to kill an alien race. But you know, something else will happen that will prevent him for doing it, so this looks like a space thriller (with action sequences performed by Cruise himself, of course). And the cast looks reaaaaally good: Morgan Freeman, who should be in every film in the world –and narrate it-, Bond girl Olga Kurylenko, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau aka the Kingslayer (yes!) and Oscar winner Melissa Leo. The film is written and directed by Joseph Kosinski, who made the awful TRON remake, but I am willing to give Oblivion a chance. And the trailer looks compelling.
You will probably like it if you love: Prometheus, Minority Report.
OLYMPUS HAS FALLEN (19 April)
And since we can never get enough of Freeman and Leo, we can see them in another film just a week after Oblivion. In this one, Gerard Butler stars as a security guard at the White House. He ends up trapped there just before a terrorist attack takes place, and you can expect lots of action and all-American sequences (yes, starring Butler, as Scottish as a scotch). Aaron Eckhart portrays the president, because this man can play any type of politician in the smoothest way. Antoine Fuqua is the man behind the camera, and he directed King Arthur and Training Day, so I’m going to give him credit for that.
You will probably like it if you love: Air Force One, any Gerard Butler action movie.
IRON MAN 3 (26 April)
As if THIS FILM needed any introduction! Probably one of the most anticipated movies of the year, the third instalment of the adventures of Tony Stark seems rather promising. After all, it has to live up to its predecessors, which is saying a lot. This time, Jon Favreau doesn’t return to the director’s chair (although he remains in the film as Happy Hogan) and Shane Black, who worked with Downey Jr in Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, takes over. Reprising their roles are Robert Downey Jr (obviously), Gwyneth Paltrow and Don Cheadle, and the new faces are Ben Kingsley and Guy Pearce, so Iron Man is going to be mind-blowing. These movies never EVER let you down.
You will probably like it if you love: Iron Man, Iron Man 2, The Avengers, Thor.
I will stop here for now, because most of the films after this date have yet to release a trailer, so I hope to write the fourth instalment soon enough with new trailers. Don’t miss these films!
