It goes without saying that film fans everywhere are looking forward to the release of a vast number of motion pictures in the upcoming year. Over the course of 2012, how many times have we heard the line “I can’t wait for this film to hit cinemas next year!”?
Luckily, for those who are familiar with such a phrase, and like me, can’t remember each film it’s referred to over the last 12 months, IGN have gone to the trouble of compiling a list of films that are set to hit our screens from now, until the end of March.
From the trailers I’ve watched thus far, my highlights include the modern day remake of ‘Hansel and Gretel’, a star studded ‘Movie 43’, and of course further confirmation that Sylvester Stallone is still rocking and rolling as a big screen hard man in the 21st Century with, ‘Bullet to the Head’, (what a title!) Will Stallone ever cease to be a badass?
One more movie I’m particularly enthused about is ‘Jack the Giant Slayer’, a) because it looks clad with some serious VFX, and b) Because last time I saw this story portrayed to an audience I was about 7 years old, and left with a sore throat after shouting phrases such as ‘it’s behind you!” for 2 hours straight. Plus, I'm a sucker for an action packed revamp!
I doubt I’d have completed this blog post if I’d watched each and every trailer on the list – so let us know if we should keep our eyes peeled for any more that are included!
Here’s to a cinematic 2013!
