I realized the other day that I am looking forward to a CRAP LOAD of movies in 2012. I mean, I love movies. I’ll go see just about any movie in the movie theater if I have the time. But there are movies in 2012 that I’ve actually got marked on my CALENDAR – or I will as soon as the release dates are announced. That’s how excited I am.
The first, of course, is Snow White And The Huntsman (JUNE) which has a KILLER TRAILER seen here but I’m unable to embed it because the stupid creators restricted embedding. You know, because GOD FORBID I promote their stupid movie. Instead, look at this picture of Chris Hemsworth:
I have to say that Kristen Stewart has grown on me over the years. Both on screen and off. ESPECIALLY off-screen. She is much more tolerable in interviews and appearances now which makes her endearing. AND, I think I like her more on screen as well as evidenced by my enjoyment of the first half of “Breaking Dawn.” Can’t wait to see her play a badass Snow White in a damn suit of armor. SCORE.
You KNOW I’m totally bursting to see “Hunger Games” right? I mean, I am SO STOKED. I think the casting has been brilliant and even the decisions I didn’t agree with at first, I’m on board with now. Either because I’ve seen wardrobe/footage and I’m pleased, or because I’ve just decided to trust the creators. Either way? CAN NOT WAIT. And since they don’t mind me promoting their movie for them…here’s the trailer.
Another movie-from-a-book-I-loved is The Perks Of Being A Wallflower which comes out at an unknown time in 2012. I read the book after E had been begging me to for AGES. I really enjoyed it. I had a few complaints but nothing that would interfere with my excitement over seeing the movie. Especially when seeing the following cast list: Emma Watson, Nina Dobrev, Paul Rudd, and Mae Whitman. ARE YOU KIDDING ME? Everyone one of those people have done projects I adore. Even if I hadn’t read Perks in book form, I’d be all over this movie.
I’m also totally anticipating two more movies that don’t have release dates yet. (WHAT IS UP WITH THAT? GIVE ME SOME RELEASE DATES ALREADY.) Struck By Lightning which was written by, and stars, Chris Colfer from Glee. And of course, his boyfriend on the show – Darren Criss – will be in Kristin Wiig’s next movie, Imogene which also comes out some time in 2012. There is a still here showing him in all of his boy band glory. Rock On.
What about you? Do you have any movies you’re stoked about in 2012? Movies I am probably also stoked about but just not remembering? Am I over-using the word “stoked?” Is that word completely out of date? I don’t feel like I’ve used it in years.
