Let’s take a minute to talk Disney. There are so many amazing movies in the works now that my excitement level is through the roof. With all the sequels and new movies coming, it’s slightly overwhelming to schedule seeing them all (and yes, I must see them all.) Thankfully they’re spread out enough to make scheduling totally doable. There’s a movie for everyone in this line-up which is just another something I love about Disney.
Iron Man 3
First off, Iron Man 3… am I the only one screaming “FINALLY!!”? I’ve been waiting for this movie since 10 minutes into Iron Man 2.
The introduction of Iron Patriot definitely has me on the edge of my seat waiting for Iron Man 3 to hit theaters on May 3rd. It’s a little off script, but I never liked Norman Osborn anyway; I think Don Cheadle (Rhodey) is a great alternative!
Bring on those iron clad heroes and pass the popcorn. Oh, and Gwyneth of course! Pepper may be my favorite character in the Iron Man series – sorry Robert Downey Jr.!
A little insight into Iron Man 3:
Marvel’s “Iron Man 3” pits brash-but-brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/Iron Man against an enemy whose reach knows no bounds. When Stark finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy’s hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. This journey, at every turn, will test his mettle. With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him. As he fights his way back, Stark discovers the answer to the question that has secretly haunted him: does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man?
THOR: THE DARK WORLD
The only reason this movie is second is because I have to keep it in the back of my mind. If not, I lose track of time fantasizing about Chris Hemsworth - don’t judge me! Thor 2 is coming to theaters on November 8, 2013 and you can bet I’m going to be sitting front and center with my eyes glued to the screen.
Seriously, this is another sequel I’ve been waiting for what seems like forever to come out. I’m totally hoping to see more of Thor and Jane - that’s 1 intergalactic relationship I’m routing for. I was bummed that after so long of not being able to come to Earth the 2 didn’t see each other in The Avenger’s.
A little insight into Thor 2:
Marvel’s “Thor: The Dark World” continues the big-screen adventures of Thor, the Mighty Avenger, as he battles to save Earth and all the Nine Realms from a shadowy enemy that predates the universe itself. In the aftermath of Marvel’s “Thor” and “Marvel’s The Avengers,” Thor fights to restore order across the cosmos…but an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith returns to plunge the universe back into darkness. Faced with an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster and force him to sacrifice everything to save us all.
Keeping up with the Avenger’s theme here, I’m excited to tell you to expect to see some more Steve Rogers in the future, April 4, 2014, to be exact. That’s right – production of Captain America: The Winter Soldier has begun.
The Lone Ranger
I was a little on the fence about this movie. I was never a Lone Ranger fan (don’t plan my lynching, I’m just being honest!) I just couldn’t get into it. I never even tried to watch a movie or television show that involved cowboys and indians. I blame a childhood of forced Western watching.
However, the sheer fact that this movie stars Johnny Depp as Tonto may be enough to reserve my seat in the theater on July 3, 2013 when The Lone Ranger rides into theaters. You know, Johnny, Helena Bonham Carter and Armie Hammer. It’s definitely an all-star cast that may leave me rethinking my decision to avoid the original show.
A little insight into The Lone Ranger
From producer Jerry Bruckheimer and director Gore Verbinski, the filmmaking team behind the blockbuster “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise, comes Disney/Jerry Bruckheimer Films’ “The Lone Ranger,” a thrilling adventure infused with action and humor, in which the famed masked hero is brought to life through new eyes. Native American spirit warrior Tonto (Johnny Depp) recounts the untold tales that transformed John Reid (Armie Hammer), a man of the law, into a legend of justice—taking the audience on a runaway train of epic surprises and humorous friction as the two unlikely heroes must learn to work together and fight against greed and corruption.
If you have young kids you’ll want to clear your calendars for June 21st, which is the date Monsters University is coming to theaters. The full voice roster has been released and Helen Mirren, Alfred Molina, Dave Foley, Sean P. Hayes and more join Billy Crystal, John Goodman and Steve Buscemi in a Remarkable Roster of Monster Voices.
A little insight into Monsters University
Mike Wazowski and James P. Sullivan are an inseparable pair, but that wasn’t always the case. From the moment these two mismatched monsters met they couldn’t stand each other. “Monsters University” unlocks the door to how Mike and Sulley overcame their differences and became the best of friends.
Screaming with laughter and fun, “Monsters University” is directed by Dan Scanlon (“Cars,” “Mater and the Ghostlight,” “Tracy”) and produced by Kori Rae (“Up,” “The Incredibles,” “Monsters, Inc.”). The film opens in U.S. theaters on June 21, 2013, and will be shown in Disney Digital 3D™ in select theaters.
