Movies I'm Dying to See: Part 2

Since a WHOLE BUNCH of new movie trailers were just recently released I thought I would do a second movie post (I'm sure there will be many more to come) on a few films coming soon to theaters.
The first two movies I will be listing are coming to theaters fairly soon, in March as a matter as fact, and the rest of the films are guaranteed to be summer blockbusters. Get excited!

  Dr. Seuss' The Lorax.

Based on the beloved children's book about a creature, the Lorax, and his mission to save the Truffula Trees from the greedy Once-ler, this new animated film version puts a slightly different spin on the classic story. Revolving around a twelve-year-old boy trying to impress the girl of his dreams who discovers the Lorax and helps him with his cause of saving the Truffula Trees from destruction. The Lorax is starring the voices of Zac Efron, Taylor Swift, Betty White, Ed Helms and Danny DeVito to name a few and will be in theaters March 2, 2012.

Mirror, Mirror
I'm especially excited about this one! Mirror, Mirror is a new spin of the classic tale of "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" starring Lily Collins, Julia Roberts (playing an hilarious version of the Evil Queen), Armie Hammer and Nathan Lane. It's coming to theaters March 16, 2012 and I can't wait!

The Avengers

Starring Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Jeremy Renner, Scarlett Johansson, Samuel L. Jackson, Gwyneth Paltrow and Mark Ruffalo; this star-packed action film is based on the Marvel Comics superhero team. This film will have our favorite superhero stars from past summer blockbuster films like Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Thor and Captain America.The Avengers is scheduled to be released in theaters on May 4, 2012.

What to Expect When You're Expecting

What looks to be a hilarious comedy starring Elizabeth Banks, Dennis Quaid, Matthew Morrison, Jennifer Lopez, Cameron Diaz, Anna Kendrick, Chance Crawford and Chris Rock. What to Expect When You're Expecting is based on the best-selling pregnancy book about well, all the things to expect when you're expecting. The film is scheduled to be in theaters on May 11,2012.

Moonrise Kingdom

Get ready for another Wes Anderson film! Moonrise Kingdom stars Jared Gilman, Kara Hayward, Bruce Willis,Edward Norton, Bill Murray, Frances McDormand, Jason Schwartzman, Tilda Swinton and Harvey Keitel in a movie about a tale of young lovers in the 1960's who runway together. Moonrise Kingdom will be in theaters on May 25, 2012.

Rock of Ages

Rock of Ages is the movie version of a Broadway Musical featuring songs from the '80s such as Styx, Journey, Bon Jovi, Pat Benatar, Twisted Sister and Poison. The film mainly revolves around two young lovers in the music industry and their struggles finding fame. Rock of Ages stars Tom Cruise, Paul Giamatti, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Alec Baldwin, Russell Brand and Julianne Hough. It's scheduled to be in theaters on June 1, 2012.

Snow White and the Huntsman

Snow White and the Huntsman is, yes, another movie about "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" but this version definitely has a more darker, action-packed feel to it and is unlike any Snow White story we have heard before. For instance, instead of the Huntsman killing Snow White, he teaches her the art of war and has her fight back against the Evil Queen. Starring Kristen Stewart, Charlize Theron and Chis Hemsworth the film is scheduled to be in theaters on June 1, 2012 (good day for movies!).

I hope you're as excited for these upcoming films as I am! Let's go to the movies! Anyone? Anyone?
