I know that many of you are like me and try to see just about everything that hits theaters (often regardless of quality, which can lead to the March Blues, as we mentioned in the most recent Power Hour Podcast), but stepping away from that for a second…right now, what’s the next movie that really has you excited and anticipating going to the movies? We’re not in the prime movie season yet at all, but there’s always a film coming up in the relatively near future that you’re hyped about. Is it this week’s release of ‘The Hunger Games’ (which our very own Mike Ward is over the moon for)? Is it one of the big superhero flicks like ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’, ‘The Avengers’, or ‘The Dark Knight Rises’? Is it something more original and of a more specialized genre like ‘Cabin in the Woods’, ‘Prometheus’, or ‘The Raid: Redemption’? Or is it something much simpler like ‘American Reunion’, ‘Brave’, ‘The Five Year Engagement’, or even ‘Titanic’ in 3D? Could it even be something that’s been delayed until next year like ‘World War Z’? I ask to try and find out where the excitement level is at for movie fans right now, especially here at The Awards Circuit in the long lull before the Oscar films start coming out again in the fall.
For me, pretty much all of the above (short of ‘Titanic’, and more…but I’m perhaps a special case. I sit down to every film hoping it’s about to be the best one ever made. Pretty much every single time that’s not the case, but hey. I will say this though…if nothing has you interested just yet, then wait until the fall and winter. This could be one of the better awards seasons in some time, so get excited!
Anyway, definitely let us know the film or films that have you counting the days until release for. It can be something I mentioned, or something out of the blue. No answer is too out there, and honestly, I’m really curious about the films you all may be excited for that I’m not properly paying attention to yet. Let us know and help us get excited too!
