Director: Wes Anderson

Actors: Edward Norton, Ralph Fiennes, Bill Murray, Owen Wilson, Willem Dafoe,
Jude Law, Adrien Brody, Tilda Swinton, Jeff Goldblum, Jason Schwartzman, Harvey Keitel

Another piece of gold from the Wes Anderson treasure chest is coming. Set between the wars in a fast changing Europe, The Grand  Budapest Hotel tells the story of Gustave, a Chef d’hotel played by a very untypical Ralph Fiennes. The picture looks like it has everything you expect from a Wes Anderson story: colorful, funny and a cast that keeps on getting more impressive every time. What’s great about Wes Anderson films is his ability to cast actors we all know pretty well to play certain roles, and make them surprise us. It looks like it’s not going to be any different this time. Grand Budapest Hotel is set to come out in March of next year.

Director: Joseph Gordon-Levitt

Actors: Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Scarlett Johansson, Julianne Moore, Tony Danza

DON JON

“My body, my pad, my ride, my family, my church, my boys, my girls, my porn”. The directorial debut of Joseph Gordon-Levitt has arrived and it looks quite punchy. Gordon-Levitt takes on the main part of Don Jon himself, a late twenties New Jersey-guy who thrives well in his own small kept world. But things are about to change of course, they would for you too if you bumped into Scarlett Johansson! And, it’s got Tony Danza in it!

Director: Jeff Wadlow

Actors: Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Chloë Grace Moretz, Jim Carrey, Christopher Mintz-Plasse

Release Date: August 16

Kick-Ass is back! And judging from this trailer he grew a pair and spent some time at the gym too. Hit-Girl teams up with our superhero once again as the take on Red Mist, who reinvented himself as “The Motherf*>=er” for the occasion. Unsettled scores from the first part need to be settled and Jim Carrey joins the madness as well as a born-again ex-mobster named Colonel Stars and Stripes. No doubt he’s going to outdo Nicolas Cage as the ‘adult’ hero from part 1. No room for the weak, just bad-ass superheroes and super-villains  who know how to kick ass!

Beyond-The-Pines1

When Luke (Ryan Gosling), a legendary motorcycle stunt-racer finds out that his ex-girlfriend Romina (Eva Mendes) gave birth to his  son, he decides to provide for them by using his motorcycle skills to assist in a bank robbery. Of course, not everything goes a planned… Bradley Cooper plays the over-motivated cop who tries to catch him. I’m a fan of Gosling and Cooper, so,as far as I’m concerned, a very promising cast, directed by Derek Cianfrance, who worked with Gosling before in the 2010 romantic drama ‘Blue Valentine‘. Release date for the US and most of Europe is end march.

A new Danny Boyle flick is always something to look forward to. ‘Trance’ is a thriller featuring James McAvoy as an art auctioneer who becomes involved in the heist of a Goya masterpiece with a group of ruthless, underworld criminals led by the ever-intense Vincent Cassel. Rosario Dawson co-stars as a highly-intelligent psychotherapist Elizabeth, hired to coerce the location of the priceless painting after Simon double-crosses his mobster partner. After ‘Slumdog Millionaire’, ‘127 Hours’ and last year’s Olympic Opening Ceremony, Boyle takes on yet another genre with this drama-thriller. I’m eager to see Boyle’s take on this on since he always manages to be original and genuine in whatever he does.  A release date is still to be confirmed but is expected to be somewhere around the end of March.
