Friday’s Favourite Film Release #1

Okay, so, every friday (and wednesday) the cinemas here in the UK release new films to the viewing public and so I thought of a good plan and something fun to do for this blog of mine. Basically, I will trawl through the new film releases, watch the trailers, read the synopsis and then tell all of you about each of them and then let you know which one is my favourite (the one I’m most looking forward to watching) and invite you to let me know your thoughts.

Let’s see if this works, shall we?

The Adventures of Tintin (Release Date: 26/10/11)
Starring: Jamie Bell, Andy Serkis, Daniel Craig and Simon Pegg
The adventures of Tintin is an adaptation of the cartoon brought to life by Steven Speilberg. When Tintin buys a model boat, he finds an inscriped letter hidden within it that begins a new adventure. This adventure opens a new world of possibilities and failures to which he must conquer and even puts him against the villain, Red Rackham. Will Tintin be able to save the day?

 The Help (Release Date: 26/10/11)
Starring:  Emma Stone, Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer and Jessica Chastain
An adaptation of Kathryn Stocketts novel, The Help tells the story of a writer who sees the world differently to those around her and consequently writes a book in the perspective of ‘the help’; the black maids. This leads to scandall and changes within society that may be irreversable…

 Ides of March (Release Date: 28/10/11)
Starring: George Clooney, Ryan Gosling, Paul Giamatti and Philip Seymour Hoffman
This is a film about an ambitious press secretary who continuously works harder than most to get his candidate to win presidency. Before long, however he gets caught in the middle of back-room politics that ends in a high-end scandall that has the power to ruin everything…

 Anonymous (Release Date: 28/10/11)
Starring: Rhys Ifans, Vanessa Redgrave, David Thewliss and Edward Hogg
This film questions whether or not Shakespeare ever actually wrote anything. Set back in his time, Anonymous tells the tale of life during those times. One filled with politics, scandall, forbidden liasons and scheming noblemen and maybe, just maybe, the truthful idea that Shakespeare is a fraud. 


This is a film that I have been waiting for since the first time that I saw the trailer and, in all honesty, the fact that it’s a novel adaptation only makes me more inspired to go and see it. Unfortunately I haven’t gotten around to reading the novel yet but it is on my to-read list and will definitely be read after I have watched this film. I have heard only good thinks regarding this and so my anticipation is definitely up high.

But what of you? What do you want to see most?

    I am definitely intrigued by The Help! I’ve seen that cover around a bunch of times, but I haven’t read the novel either. Like you, the fact that it’s a novel-turned-movie just gets me all excited haha. It really sounds good though, so I can’t wait to ready our thoughts if your see it before me!
