Fall & Winter Movie Preview: 10 Reasons to be Thrilled
There are plenty of things to look forward to in the coming months. Scarves, holidays, food. They’re all great, but best of all are the movies. We are fast approaching what the studios view as their best of the season. Each one releases their Oscar contenders and “buzz” worthy films in the next 4 months.
This year is going to be a wild ride. Here are 10 reasons why you need to be excited about the upcoming fall/winter movie season.
1. JOSEPH GORDON-LEVITT WILL LOOK LIKE THIS
JGL has made the bold move from actor to director and writer with his new film Don Jon and it looks spectacular. Then there is Scarlett Johansson. Everything is perfect. Earrings, nails, T&A and lip gloss. What else is missing?
Levitt plays a young fella hooked to porn that struggles managing his addiction and new found relationship with woman who could be the one. A tale as old as time.
If you aren’t sold quite yet that sucks for you. Get ready for September 17 when Levitt knocks your socks off. Besides have you ever seen anybody this excited for their directorial debut?
2. CRAZY SHIT WILL HAPPEN IN GRAVITY
I AM READY TO CRAP IN MY PANTS
WHAT IS GOING ON???
WHY IS THIS SO SCARY? OH THAT’S RIGHT, IT’S SPACE.
Put aside your feelings on Sandra Bullock and forget that George Clooney tries to sell you things with his luscious voice. Just think about being the person in those puffy white suits. Terrifying.
OCTOBER 4TH. THAT’S ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW
3. CARRIE…WITH CELL PHONES
SPOILERS for the 1976 Carrie
It’s one thing to get your period in the gym shower and make a mess in 1976 but it would be an entirely different thing in this day and age.
Cell phones. Some catty chick would have that shit on YouTube or Twitter within minutes. That is horror enough for me. Poor little Chloë Grace Moretz.
4. MICHAEL FASSBENDER
McQueen, being a wonderful photographer creates some gorgeous movies and they have all left a lasting impression. There seems to be one key ingredient….
Not to mention thanks to McQueen we were all able to discover the meaty truth behind Fassbender. Ladies, if you haven’t seem Shame yet I highly encourage you to check it out.
You have until October 18th to catch up on your Fassbender visuals before he plays a frightening plantation owner in 12 Years a Slave.
5. CAMERON DIAZ WILL POSSIBLY PLAY CRAZY….AGAIN
Not to mention the tattoos
And metallic fingernail polish. Or the touching.
Also, she is crawling on a car in a leopard print dress.
Sign me up, I’ll be there October 25th.
6. LEONARDO DICAPRIO WILL YELL
I have a feeling The Wolf on Wall Street which tells the story of a New York stockbroker involved in some naughty business will have plenty of angry Leo.
I for one am looking forward to it.
And then…there was….KYLE CHANDLER
COACH. Even he can have a freak out from time to time.
Also does this shot where Leo looks like he doesn’t have a head freak anybody else out?
7. CHRISTIAN BALE WILL ROCK A GOATEE
Bale plays a man trying to find his brother who has gone missing after kicking some serious ass. Yeah I know, just go watch the trailer for Out of the Furnace.
Also check out all the ways he is trying to make that facial hair work.
At the bar…
With a gun…
In the mirror…
While at church…
And during this
Plus, find out why Willem Dafoe looks so concerned on December 6th.
8. OSCAR ISAAC WILL SING
It will be wonderful. I’m looking forward to Inside Llewyn Davis for many reasons mainly the look of the film itself, but after seeing 1o Years (yes I watched that turd) and experiencing this little gem:
How much does every girl want to be Kate Mara in that scene?
Oscar Issac seems to be the complete package, I mean look at this face!
All we are missing now are some sweet dance moves. Who knows, the day is young.
Watch him play a folk singer with a cat that has relationship issues on December 6th.
9. THERE WILL BE BUTT BONGOS
Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner and Christian Bale all in over the top 70s apparel. Big hair, juicy lips and low cut dresses. It all just brings up feelings of avocado green and burnt orange.
With these visuals do you really even need to hear the plot for American Hustle to be interested? Naw.
You can put all the pieces together on December 13th.
I mean seriously, check out his glasses and these outfits.
Putting aside the outfits he stars in Her as a man that falls in love with a computer operating system that just so happens to be the voice of Scarlett Johansson. How would that relationship work? We shall see on December 18th.
