21 and Over

This is a hilarious gross-out comedy in the style of American Pie. There really isn’t much of a plot except it is three guys getting drunk and wild to celebrate the last one’s 21st birthday. The only problem is that he has a college interview the following day. Starring Skylar Astin (Pitch Perfect), Justin Chon (Twilight) and Miles Teller (Footloose/Project X). Released: 3rd May

The Great Gatsby

I am SO excited for this and have been since December, when it was supposed to be released! Tobey Maguire plays Nick Carraway, the narrator of the story. He talks through his experiences with his neighbour Jay Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his second cousin, Daisy Buchanan (Carey Mulligan). I don’t want to give anything else away from those who haven’t read the book. I expect great things from this Baz Luhrmann production. Cannot wait! Released: 16th June.

Epic

This is an animation in the same vein as A Bug’s Life. Mary Katherine (Amanda Seyfried) lives with her father, a professor (voiced by Jason Sudeikis). He studies the miniature group of warriors who live in the forest. One day, Mary is shrunk down and discovers the “leafmen”. She helps them protect the forest again the evil “Boggans” while trying to find her way back home. It looks amazing and is voiced by an amazing cast. Voices you may recognise are: Josh Hutcherson, Colin Farrell, Beyoncé, Chris O’Dowd and Christoph Waltz. Released: 22nd

The Hangover III

Well, the boys are back for some more Las Vegas mayhem! I’m glad this is the last one because I’m getting a bit tired of the same formula but this is set to be entirely different. All the old favourites are back as well as new members John Goodman and Melissa McCarthy. I wasn’t too bothered but the trailer sucked me in and now I can’t wait. I’m sure it will end with a bang. Released: 24th

The Purge

This is a very interesting idea for a horror/thriller. Crime rates are low in this world because one night a year, every crime (including murder) is legal. On that night, called “The Purge”, Ethan Hawke and his family lock down their house and just hope the night passes without trouble. Stupidly, their daughter takes pity on someone screaming for help and lets them in. They are now the target and making through the night in the one piece will be a challenge. So intrigued by this. Released: 31st
