While the summer movie season is in full swing, Hollywood is already gearing up for the fall season. Here is a look at what you can expect, starting in September: Vin Diesel, fresh off the success of ‘Fast & Furious 6’ will return as ‘Riddick’, co-starring Karl Urban and Katee Sackoff. Danny Trejo will return as the ex-Federale agent in ‘Machete Kills’, Mel Gibson, Lady Gaga and a host of others co-star. Horror fans will be treated to ‘Insidious Chapter 2’, while Ron Howard directs Chris Hemsworth on the Grand Prix racetracks in the true story ‘Rush’. Robert DeNiro revisits his mob roots with co-stars Michelle Pfeiffer and Tommy Lee Jones in ‘The Family’.
In October, George Clooney and Sandra Bullock topline the sci-fi thriller ‘Gravity’, while Tom Hanks stars in Paul Greengrass’ true story about ‘Captain Phillips’, who gets taken hostage by Somali pirates, and Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger join forces as inmates in ‘Escape Plan’. The month will close out with a re-imagining of Stephen King’s ‘Carrie’.
In November, Harrison Ford, Ben Kingsley and Hailee Steinfeld headline ‘Ender’s Game’, based on the popular novel about a futuristic war with an alien race. Rachel McAdams and Domhnall Gleeson star in the romantic-drama ‘About Time’, while Chris Hemsworth returns as the Norse God himself in ‘Thor: The Dark World’, as he battles to save Earth and all the Nine Realms, while Jennifer Lawrence and Liam Hemsworth reprise their roles in ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’. And for the kids, Disney rolls out ‘Frozen’, with Kristen Bell supplying voice talents.
In December, we will see the second chapter of director Peter Jackson’s adaptation of J.R.R Tolkien’s classic children’s novel ‘The Hobbit’. In this tale, our little heroes, led by Bilbo Baggins and Gandalf the wizard, do battle with a dragon in ‘The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug’.
