As for Dunst? She's got quite a few movies in production! I saw a trailer for one that has yet to have a release date...but it looks visually stunning and definitely has me intrigued. It's called Upside Down and seems like another Romeo & Juliet but far more literally, as they live in two different worlds. One in the sky, and one below. It co-stars Jim Sturgess who I just love and I gotta say Kirsten looks really pretty here. Hopefully it can get a release date soon. Apologies for the only trailer I could find had French subtitles!
Finally Sam Raimi's next project, in which he's re-teaming with Spider-man alum James Franco, has me very intrigued. The project? A prequel to The Wizard of Oz. Sounds pretty risky if you ask me, but there's plenty of story and the cast in addition to Franco is pretty darn talented. Rachel Weisz, Mila Kunis and Michelle Williams? Williams especially seems to be more picky with her roles nowadays, so I'm interested to see what she saw in this one. The trailer looks fun and I'll be very interested in seeing it. Too bad it doesn't come out til next March...but here's your first look.
So I guess there's life after Spider-man, and I'm really happy for all of them that they've got such good projects on the horizon. Hopefully Marc, Emma and Andrew aren't completely tied to Spidey for the next bit either...but so be it if they are :) Now as for other films due out for the rest of the summer...
THE WATCH: Standard summer comedy featuring the usual likes of Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn and Jonah Hill. In this one they have to deal with an alien invasion! Baha. What WILL these people think of next? The trailer did make me laugh though.
RUBY SPARKS: This is one of my most anticipated. I want to see it soooo badly. The directors of Little Miss Sunshine are back tackling a very Twilight Zone plotline about a man who brings the perfect woman, his own character he created for a novel, to life. It looks charming and I can't wait for when I'll actually be able to see it. Hopefully the trailer hasn't ruined me already...
THE CAMPAIGN: This didn't look like the best Will Ferrell film (it's been awhile hasn't it?) But Gallifanakis' voice kinda cracked me up. We'll see how well they do poking fun at politics....(even if it is in red box hah)
HOPE SPRINGS: This movie has got "mom" written all over it. Middle aged couple hoping to rekindle the intimacy. Let's be honest though, Meryl is a pretty amazing actress and can make anything watchable. Plus her and Tommy Lee Jones make a surprisingly, believable couple.
THE ODD LIFE OF TIMOTHY GREEN: I feel like I've seen posters for this one for ages. Basically it's like Mary Poppins except its parents wishing for the perfect child and then he shows up on their doorstep. It looks very family friendly...hopefully it's endearing rather than too precious...if you know what I mean.
PREMIUM RUSH: JGL. Need I say more? Fine... Michael Shannon from Take Shelter is in this too. JGL is a bike messenger being chased for info blah blah blah... yes this could be generic...but hopefully the good cast makes up for it.
ROBOT AND FRANK: Another quirky Sundance pick. This one with Frank Langella and a Robot! From what I gathered from the trailer he uses the robot in a nice, good ole fashioned grift.
Well that will close out the movies of summer. I'll have to do a fall/winter list soon too...just hopefully not too soon :( I love my summers. Now, if you're really feeling the Batman fever feel free to read over my Batman Begins blog again (or rather, my Rachel Dawes rant) found HERE or my Dark Knight blog found HERE. Not sure if I'll get to posting my Nolan tribute blog before the release of The Dark Knight Rises. But maybe I'll do another Batman ramblings blog before then if I can...
