This election weekend we here at MovieViral got out and voted for the man who would be running our country for four years. So it seemed fitting that a new trailer for Lincoln pop up. We have already posted our review of the film, which is sure to get some of the top prizes during awards season. Directed by Steven Spielberg, Lincoln stars Daniel Day-Lewis and opens in theaters in wide release on November 16th.
Love between the living and the dead – better known as necrophilia – makes it on the news from time to time, but when the love is between the living and a zombie, then it’s really strange. Such is the premise for Warm Bodies, where a living young girl (Teresa Palmer) and a zombie (Nicholas Hoult) cross paths and become lovers. And ignorant military general (John Malkovich) is intent on killing both the zombies and those worse than zombies – walking skeletons. The film opens in theaters on February 1.
World War Z
Marc Forster’s adaptation of Max Brooks‘ novel that everyone has been dreading from day one. Many have said that the film would not be anything like the book itself, and judging by the reactions on the trailer, they will not come out in droves to see this movie. Let’s hope they can figure something out before the movie comes out in seven months. Starring Brad Pitt, World War Z opens in theaters in June 2013.
A strong cast with some powerful vocals fuel this daring adaptation of Les Miserables. Instead of having recordings Tom Hooper had his cast, which consists of Hugh Jackman, Amanda Seyfried, Anne Hathaway, Russell Crowe, and many more, do live singing, something that is practically unheard of. But it looks like it was the right move for the film. Les Miserables opens in theaters on December 25th.
The film based on the master of suspense making Psycho has been getting mixed reviews as of late, but with a cast made up of Anthony Hopkins, Helen Mirren, Jessica Biel, and Scarlett Johansson, who can really deny watching this movie. The film opens in limited theaters on November 23.
