For those who have been following my blog for a while now, you know I’m a huge film buff. I’m such a film buff that IMDB is my Internet best friend. Recently I’ve been around the web, catching up on films that are going to be coming out in the next year or two. They aren’t things that are coming out right now or anything, so the anticipation is really getting me. Hopefully (as sad as this is) you will read some of these and get as excited as I am and we can have a nice ol’ chat about our excitement. Or not.
A List of Films That I Am Dying to See (In the Future)
Like Crazy: A film about two lovers (an American and a Brit) who meet and fall in love. When she has to leave to go back to England, the two of them try to continue a relationship long distance. Anton Yelchin and Felicity Jones star. It was featured at Sundance this year and will be released on 28 October. I like this film because I find long distance relationships the most tragic but completely thrilling of all relationships. Plus, I am a huge Anton Yelchin fan.
The Perks of Being a Wallflower: I dedicated a whole post to the book that this film is based on. A tragic story about a boy who is trying to figure out how to live his life and how people really are. Very heart-touching. It stars Logan Lerman and Emma Watson as the leads. The film will premiere sometime in 2012 in the US. This is the film adaptation of my favorite book, so of course I’m excited!
Sin Bin: A coming-of-age film where a Chicago teenage boy loans out his large van to his friends for their sexual encounters with the ‘ladies’. It’s kind of a funny story line, but looks hilarious. And you can actually watch behind-the-scenes footage here from the friend of the writer and director. It features the talented Michael Seater and Emily Meade. I love what the film is about and that is takes place in Chicago and even has our multi-talented Bo Burnham to play as the villain. The release date for this is yet unknown, which angers me.
And those are the films that I am most looking forward to in the coming year or so. I’ve provided you with the links but you have to come up with the interest on your own!
