Sony Report at Cinemacon Day 3
Sony was up at day 3 of Cinemacon in Vegas and we were there to get the details.
There are some exiting movies coming up in the summer and fall of 2012 from Sony. Action packed films many are anticipating are “Men in Black 3” and “The Amazing Spiderman”, but another one to get exited for will be a remake of “Total Recall” (August) starring Colin Farrell, Jessica Biel, and Kate Beckinsale.
There will be two more action flicks coming up both starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt. One is about a bike messenger coming out in August called “Premium Rush”. The other, a bit more thrilling, with a time traveling science fiction twist due in September is “Looper”, co-starring none other that Mr. Die Hard himself, Bruce Willis. Raccoon City fans, your girl is back, this time in 3D and IMAX in “Resident Evil Retribution”, but you’ll have to wait till mid September.
Don’t worry about the kids though, Sony didn’t forget about them. The Pirates! Band of Misfits will be opening on Friday the 27th. Look for it in 3D.
Another kid flick to look forward to is “Hotel Transylvania” due out at the end of September. Dracula, voiced by Adam Sandler, runs a hotel for monsters and ghouls, things go awry when a human stumbles upon the scene. Even further down the line in October look out for an inspirational comedy, “Here Comes the Boom”. More appropriate for the tweens and teens starring Kevin James and Salma Hayek. A high school teacher fights to keep the music program, literally. Kevin James’ character starts fighting MMA style to raise money.
Other honorable mentions go to “Think Like a Man” which blew away the competition in it’s opening week. Also look forward to the late Whitney Houston starring in “Sparkle”, with Jordan Sparks and Cee-Lo due in August. “Ladies”, the only Rom-Com from Sony this summer will Hope Springs starring the lovely and talented Meryl Streep. Streep plays the wife of a couple married over thirty years struggling to put the spark back into their love.
Co-starring Tommy Lee Jones and Steve Carell. It may be the only Rom-Com from Sony this summer but it’s in a league of its own, so guys grab your girl in early August and have a laugh or two. If you’re looking for a not-so-clean laugh this June be sure to watch Adam Sandler in That’s My Boy. Look out for SNL alum Ana Gasteyer and Vanilla Ice as himself.
As for the most exiting news of all from Sony, look forward to Bond in “Skyfall”. Daniel Craig is back as the world’s most beloved spy and it’s hitting the box office near you in November. The executives at Sony also spoke of some films to look forward to in 2013 such as; “Smurfs 2” in 3D, “Grown ups 2”, “After Earth” with father/son duo Will and Jaden Smith, “The Evil Dead”, and a remake of “Robocop”.
