Coming Attractions

Now that Hunger Games has finally arrived, it’s time toward what comes next.  Here’s what I’m looking forward to in the next couple of months:

Bobcat Goldwaithe’s God Bless America.  After dropping out of sight for a while, he has a new HBO Special and what looks like an enjoyably nasty new movie.  The trailer is NSWF

 

Snow White and the Huntsman.  The trailers look phenomenal, and Charlize Theron has been a favorite of mine since 2 Days in the Valley, the criminally under-rated  1996 film that was her first credited screen appearance.  (And, of course, as an  Arrested Development veteran, she can do no wrong.)

 

The Pirates! Band of Misfits.  I’ve loved the Gideon Defoe’s The Pirates! books for years, and Wallace and Gromit films for even longer.  The two together should be magic.

 

If you enjoy the movie, you’d probably enjoy reading The Pirates! In an Adventure with Communists or The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists
