1. “The Fault in Our Stars”
The popular romance novel written by John Green is coming to theaters this June. “The Fault in Our Stars” tells the story of Hazel, a cancer patient, who meets amputee Augustus at her support group. Ineveitably, they fall in love, but the witty remarks and sarcasm between the two will spark an emotion in every viewer. “Secret Life of the American Teenager” star Shailene Woodley is cast as Hazel, and Ansel Elgort plays Augustus.
2. “The Amazing Spider-Man 2”
If you enjoyed the first Spider-Man in 2012, the trailer for this next film looks to be even more action-packed. Spider-Man is pitted against three villains now with the Rhino, Electro and the Green Goblin as he finally begins to come to terms with being the city’s web-slinging savoir. It will be interesting to see how the CGI effects
3. “22 Jump Street”
The once laughable reboot of the 1980s teenage crime drama into a 2012 comedy is getting a sequel. The large surprise success of “21 Jump Street” sends Schmidt and Jenko off to college after graduating from high school (the second time). Let’s keep our fingers crossed that it was not dumb luck which donned “21 Jump Street” its success, so we do not go to the theaters to see a sequel snoozefest.
What is that? Disney is making a movie about a classic villain from “Sleeping Beauty?” That sounds magnificent. Staring Angelina Jolie as Maleficent, the evil fairy who curses Princess Aurora to die before the sun sets on her 16th birthday. This film looks to take an approach not seen before from Disney. The film will show the life and origination of Maleficent to just see why she is so darn bad.
5. “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes”
Yes. “The Planet of the Apes” series received a reboot in 2011 with the film “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” starring James Franco. This film may have received little buzz and been shrugged off as a boring set-up piece for a franchise, but it packed a wallop. “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” begins where the last film left off. Caesar has broken free from captivity and has unleashed the other apes from the zoo.
