The first few actual blockbusters are going to be coming out this month including the, already selling out theaters, The Hunger Games. Disney also hopes that John Carter is a massive hit considering the ridiculous amount of money they’ve spent on it and Wrath of the Titans will hopefully improve on it’s horrible predecessor. Check out everything that’s coming out this month below.
- Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax: Danny DeVito stars as The Lorax in this animated adaptation of the classic Dr. Seuss book. The movie is from the same studio that brought you Despicable Me and also features the voices of Zac Effron, Taylor Swift, Betty White and Ed Helms.
- Project X: The branching out of the “found footage” genre continues with this high school party movie produced by Todd Phillips.
- John Carter: Disney’s multi-million dollar adaptation of the classic pulp novels by Edgar Rice Burroughs finds Confederate soldier John Carter getting transported to Mars and fighting for the natives against an evil new force that has taken over the planet.
- Silent House: Elizabeth Olsen, the other Olsen sister, stars in this home invasion/horror movie that is one, 88 minute long take.
- A Thousand Words: The latest in Eddie Murphy’s assault on good taste finds him as a fast talking, lying agent who pisses off his spiritual guru client and is cursed to be linked to tree with a thousand leaves on it, each leaf representing a word he can speak and if all the leaves fall off, he could die.
- 21 Jump Street: Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill star as a pair of over confident, bumbling cops who are transferred into a special undercover unit after they blow their first bust. Their mission is to pose as high school students and find out who is supplying the students with a new, synthetic drug.
- The Hunger Games: Based on the best selling trilogy of novels, The Hunger Games follows Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence), who lives in the future country of Panem and is forced into competing in the annual Hunger Games competition, where 24 kids, 2 from each of the 12 districts of the country, are picked to battle each other to the death in an arena as punishment for a rebellion the districts attempted years ago against the rich and powerful Capitol.
- Mirror, Mirror: The first, and awful looking, Snow White movie coming out this year, Mirror, Mirror is from Tarsem Singh, coming off Immortals and seems to be taking a more “comedic” take on the Snow White story than it’s competitor, Snow White and the Huntsman. Julia Roberts, Armie Hammer and Lily Collins star.
- Wrath of the Titans: The sequel to the critically panned but financially successful Clash of the Titans remake, Wrath of the Titans picks up with Perseus (Sam Worthington) on a quest to rescue Zeus, who has been banished to the underworld by Ares and Hades. To make matters worse, Hades unleashes the Titans from their prison in Mt. Tartarus to wreak havoc on Earth.
