Hollywood movie releases tend to slow down at the beginning of each year. In fact, some believe the only films that debut in January and February are those expected to underperform at the box office. And since the summer blockbuster movie season now begins in May, I wonder what kinds of films come out in March and April? To help you decide, here is a sampling of movie offerings for March and April.
March 15 The Incredible Burt Wonderstone. A powerful magician’s tale, not a powerful wizard’s tale.
March 15 Upside Down. Sci-fi romance with a gravitational twist.
March 15 From Up On Poppy Hill. Based on a story by Hayao Miyazaki (Spirited Away).
March 22 Admission. This media-frenzied film stars Tina Fey and Paul Rudd. But you already knew that.
March 22 The Sapphires. In the 1960s, four young Aboriginal girls form a musical group.
March 29 Family Weekend. A 16-year-old girl imprisons her parents. Whew! I’m glad my daughter is only 10.
April 5 Jurassic Park 3D. If you fantasize about getting your head bitten off by a T-rex, here’s your chance.
April 12 Scary Movie 5. Lindsay Lohan, Charlie Sheen and Mike Tyson are all casted to play themselves.
April 19 Oblivion. Tom Cruise plays an alien hunter who questions his mission, himself, and maybe certain plot twists.
April 26 Pain and Gain. A trio of bodybuilders in Florida get caught up in an extortion ring and a kidnapping scheme that goes terribly wrong. (imdb.com) How could extortion and kidnapping go wrong? I’ll bet the blame goes to that third body builder. The one how isn’t played by Wahlberg or Johnson. He sounds like a goofball.
May 3 Iron Man 3. And the summer blockbuster season begins with superhero-titled movie with a number added to it.
