Looking Forward: June 2013

The month of June brings about another big blockbuster in Man of Steel, along with several other high-budget movies in World War Z, After Earth, and more...

Man of Steel (June 14-USA, June 14-UK, June 13-Singapore)

          I've never really been a fan of Superman, but this movie, looks to be one of the biggest movies of this summer. Just by knowing that Christopher Nolan and Zack Snyder are the project leaders is enough to have me go for it. From Nolan's work in 'The Dark Knight' trilogy, I will come to expect something big from this one. And the trailers...they looked (beyond) amazing and did more than convince me to watch it, but maybe in IMAX 3D too. It looks great, and I seriously expect Man of Steel to challenge Iron Man 3 and Star Trek Into Darkness in quality and experience.

Monsters University (June 21-USA, July 12-UK, June 20-Singapore)

          12 years back, 'Monsters, Inc.' was a big hit, and was part of my memorable childhood moments, and when I watched it again recently, I finally understood the story and what a great movie it was (I'd give it at least a '9' in my review). Now, the prequel will be coming out soon, and what a creative idea it is to bring the monsters to college. I mean, who'd expect that, monsters in universities?? I've always liked animation movies for it's creativity, and this one doesn't seem to be lacking of it. And not to forget, this is a Disney/Pixar animation. Definitely must watch this!

After Earth (May 31-USA, June 7-UK, June 6-Singapore)

          I'm a bit troubled by the fact that the idea of this movie is very similar to 'Oblivion'. But then again, this movie is set 1000 years in the future compared to Oblivion's 60, and it may be interesting to directly compare which is the better post-apocalyptic Earth movie. The science-fiction elements looks good in this movie, and though the story looks initially linear, we may never know if something's up (as in 'Oblivion') or may involve deeper emotional events. But I'm not that enthusiastic with this one, but I may just watch it in cinema, but not in IMAX.

Other Movies:

World War Z (June 21)
-A zombie apocalypse which didn't really appeal that much to me, in story and in action, but the budget and plans seem to speak otherwise. Might go to watch this, but maybe not in IMAX...

White House Down (June 28)
-Unbelievably very similar to 'Olympus Has Fallen' in the fact that both are about the White House being under attack. But from the trailer, this one looked humorous, and this movie has a surprisingly high budget. Might go to watch this one as well...
