2013 sees at least two movies promising the end of the world (Comedies This Is The End and The World’s End), but also two movies set after the apocalypse (Oblivion and After Earth). It’s a year that has remakes of horror classics (Evil Dead, Carrie), sequels galore (New installments of The Hobbit, The Hunger Games, Kick-Ass, Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs and, of course, GI Joe: Retaliation) and a relaunch for Superman himself with Man of Steel. In other words, it’s a pretty packed year. But which of the movies due for release next year are you most excited about?
When you think about this season of Breaking Bad, one thought springs to mind that isn’t entirely spoilerish: Who would have thought that Jesse Plemons would have been the one Friday Nights Lights actor to get it right in the show’s aftermath?
When is a spoiler not a spoiler? When a spoiler for something that doesn’t actually happen in a movie or television show falls in a forest, does anyone hear it? The revelation this week that GI Joe: Retaliation was delayed in part to reshoot scenes that would change a crucial plot point in the movie – which revealed said plot point – has gotten me thinking about the nature of spoilers that aren’t quite spoilers.
It’s the end of the world as we know it: GI Joe: Retailiation has been pushed back nine months to, according to Paramount, convert the movie into 3D and maximize international box office – The world, it still loves the idea of the Rock literally shouting in your face, it seems. But… nine months? People can make other human beings in that time. Does it really take that long to turn a movie into 3D… or is something else going on? Here are some possible reasons for the delay
There’s no way to get around it; 2012 looks like it’s going to be an amazing year for movies, with four of the most eagerly anticipated genre movies in recent memories being released – and that’s not even including Sony’s Spider-Man reboot, which could end up as the X-Men: First Class-style surprise hit of the summer. Here’re the five movies we’re most excited about this year… and some others thrown in for good measure.
J.J. Abrams is reportedly “moving toward a commitment” to direct the sequel to his 2009 blockbuster hit Star Trek.
The G.I. Joe sequel gets a new subtitle — Retaliation — a new, June 29, 2012, release date, and a new cast member, Jurassic Park‘s Joe Mazzello.
