We all know that summer is when all the uber-hyped, big-budgeted, good movies come out, right? Well if you’d rather not wait until June and July to see a movie, when the blockbusters typically release, you’ve come to the right place. Here we have four movies you may or may not have heard of, that might be worth a watch before school gets out!
No reason to wait any longer, here are the four movies and a few reasons you might want to check them out.
First, Muppets Most Wanted (Ricky Gervais, Tina Fey). When does it come out? Right around the corner! This flick hits theaters March 21, before the month is over. There are a few reasons to check this one out. The first one definitely exceeded expectations, and James Bobin, who directed the first installment, will take the helm once again for the sequel.
Noah (Russell Crowe, Jennifer Connelly), should be next on your list of pre-summer flicks to see. Releasing on March 28, there are plenty of reasons to give this one a shot. Based on the biblical story, Russell Crowe will head up a stellar cast in a movie that promises to have blockbuster effects from what we’ve seen in trailers released to this point.
Darren Aronofsky directs the show, and if his previous work on Black Swan is any indication, this movie is one you’ll definitely want to give a shot.
Also releasing on March 28, is Sabotage, (Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sam Worthington) a movie that focuses on a DEA task force that takes on a drug cartel. This movie wouldn’t typically show up on your radar or make your list of movies to see, but it’s directed by David Ayer, the same man who wrote and directed End of Watch. If that isn’t reason enough to go see the movie, nothing is.
Transcendence (Johnny Depp, Paul Bettany), is another movie that looks promising and releases before school gets out. Hitting theaters April 17, this film is appealing, due to the cast, and the fact that it will be the directorial debut for Wally Pfister, who has done cinematography on many of Christopher Nolan’s films, including Inception, Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, and The Dark Knight Rises.
With these four movies, the wait till summer blockbuster season should seem a lot shorter, and who knows, maybe you’ll even enjoy some of these less-hyped movies more than the big-budgeted ones that will follow.
