Some great movies are coming out this fall including some sequels to previous years big blockbusters. .
Thor: The Dark World, the sequel to the 2011 Thor starring Chris Hemsworth, arrives in theaters on November 6. It is rated PG-13 for intense sequences of sci-fi/fantasy action and violence. Should slake the comic lust of all the nerds out there and draw in the females because of the very attractive Chris Hemsworth. Nerd + Girl = an enjoyable date for everyone.
Hunger Games: Catching Fire, sequel to The Hunger Games will be released 22 November and is rated PG-13 for intense sequences of violence and action, some frightening images, thematic elements, a suggestive situation and language. Should contain more of the same action as the first film, perhaps another good choice for a date.
The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, sequel to The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, will be in theaters December 13. The film is not yet rated, but will probably be PG-13 for fantasy action and violence, among other things. Tolkien fans that measure their lives based on the release of films based on his books will be happy to see this one.
Ender’s Game, based on the book by Orson Scott Card, will be released November 1. It is rated PG-13 for some violence, sci-fi action and thematic material. As this film is not a sequel what it contains is somewhat unexpected.
Some films of the Americana genre are also being released this fall.
Inside Llewyn Davis, directed by the Coen brothers, will be released December 20. The film is rated R for language including some sexual references. The Coen brother are Oscar winning film makers and this film was nominated for best picture at the New York Film Festival.
Out of the Furnace and American Hustle, both starring Christian Bale, will be released December 6 and 25 respectively. Both are rated R for violence, language, drug use and sexuality.
For everyone that loves Calvin and Hobbes, the documentary Dear Mr. Watterson: An Exploration of Calvin and Hobbes will be released on November 15. It should be an enlightening look at Bill Watterson and the effect his comic strip has had in the world.
Also, the Tom Clancy character Jack Ryan, now played by Chris Pine, is making a comeback in Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit which is rated R. The most notable aspect of this film is the direction by Kenneth Branagh, an excellent Shakespearean actor and director of Thor in 2011.
