First, check out my Movies-inspired contest for Paper Towns by John Green HERE!! The rights to that book have been sold, so maybe it might become a movie :)
Alright, so thanks for stopping by the first post of my week-long shindig, "movies In My brain". Movie related posts for 5 days, Apr 5-9. Anyone can participate just by posting their own movie-related stuff on their blog! In fact, if they do, they get an extra 5 entries into my aforementioned Paper Towns Contest!
So I wasn't sure what type of fun stuff use to kick off the week, don't worry, another post will be on later today. You can expect 2-3 movie posts per day, so check back often! =)
I settled on just doing a "movies I am looking forward to", which are basically movies that are gonna be released in theatres sometime soon. Movies that aren't out yet, and if I can, I'll include trailers! Summaries are taken from YouTube, and so are the trailers. If the trailers aren't working, or if they cause everything to lag like crazy, please leave a comment telling me so so I can change them!!
Letters To Juliet (Released: May 7)
Ft: Amanda Seyfried (Dear John) and Vanessa Redgrave
Summary (from youtube): When a young American (Amanda Seyfried) travels to the city of Verona, home of the star-crossed lover Juliet Capulet of Romeo and Juliet fame, she joins a group of volunteers who respond to letters to Juliet seeking advice about love. After answering one letter dated from 1957, she inspires its author (Vanessa Redgrave) to travel to Italy in search of her long-lost love, which sets off a chain of events that will bring a love into both their lives unlike anything they have ever imagined.
--Sound good or what?? And I do think Amanda Seyfried is a pretty good actress.
Robin Hood (May 14)
Ft: Russell Crowe and Cate Blanchett
Summary: Robin Hood chronicles the life of an expert archer, previously interested only in self-preservation, from his service in King Richards army against the French. Upon Richards death, Robin travels to Nottingham, a town suffering from the corruption of a despotic sheriff and crippling taxation, where he falls for the spirited widow Lady Marion, a woman skeptical of the identity and motivations of this crusader from the forest. Hoping to earn the hand of Maid Marion and salvage the village, Robin assembles a gang whose lethal mercenary skills are matched only by its appetite for life. Together, they begin preying on the indulgent upper class to correct injustices under the sheriff.
--Just the type of film I like, lots of action, battle, and swords/arrows! I know, I have weird tastes.
Shrek 4: Forever After (May 21)
Ft: Mike Myers and Cameron Diaz
Summary: Haha, no summary! Sorry, just a trailer. But most of you probably know what these Shrek movies are all about, plus the trailer is self-explanatory. Doesn't it look fun??
Toy Story 3 (June 18)
Summary: Woody, Buzz, and the rest of their toy-box friends are dumped in a day-care center after their owner, Andy, departs for college.
