KidsPickFlicks Fall Film Calendar: Print and Post
(Designed to Print & Post on Bulletin Board or Refrigerator)
With summer having passed and the glitz of the big superheroes faded, we set our sights onto the fall. The final months of the year is a time frame usually reserved for critical darlings being released with just enough time left so the aged members of the Academy can hopefully remember them by February. However, this season looks to be unrelenting in its release sheadule, especially since there will be more than two Halloween-centric kid films this time around. Without further ado, here are a list of films that will be released before the year's up.
September 14. Finding Nemo 3D (G): Pixar keeps up with the trend of rereleasing old films in 3D with a conversion of their undersea epic.
September 21. Perks of Being a Wallflower (PG-13): Originally rated R, Emma Watson stars in one of her first post-Potter films.
September 28. Hotel Transylvania (PG): Selena Gomez used to be a wizard, now she's stretching her wings to include vampires.
September 28. Pitch Perfect (PG-13): Twilight's Anna Kendrick leads the cast of this hilarious Glee-Goes-to-College film.
September 28. Looper (PG-13) (Whoops - this is Rated R! Sorry!) Joseph Gordon-Levitt dons a fake nose in order to convince everyone that he'll look like Bruce Willis when he's older, oh and he has to kill himself too.
October 5. Frankenweenie (PG): Tim Burton returns to animation to remake his cult classic tale of a child who resurrects his dead dog.
October 5. Taken 2 (PG-13): Liam Neeson has a particular set of skills, skills he hopes will get you into the theater.
October 12. Here Comes the Boom: Kevin James is an MMA fighter, not sure anything can follow that phrase.
October 25. Chasing Mavericks (PG): Walden Media hasn't had any HUGE hits in a while, they hope to change that with this Gerald Butler surfing pic.
October 25. Fun Size (PG-13): "Nickelodeon" and "raunchy," words that have been separate since the 90's, til now.
November 2. Wreck-It Ralph: Video Games haven't worked well as movies, but what if we set a movie in the literal video game universe using actual licensed characters? My most anticipated film of the year.
November 9. Skyfall (PG-13): After the ugly MGM financial situation, James Bond is ready to shake not stir this November.
November 9. Lincoln: An Abraham Lincoln film being directed by Steven Spielberg with Daniel Day-Lewis as Lincoln. That's a big piece of Oscar bait right there.
November 16. Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 2 (PG-13): It's reported that after this is released, all of the actors will attempt to never acknowledge this series ever again - so enjoy it now.
November 16. Anna Karenina: The Russian classic is getting another movie, with even more pretty dresses!
November 21. Red Dawn (PG-13): Shot, shelved, and featuring the "North Korean" army, Red Dawn storms theaters with a pre-Thor Chris Hemsworth and a pre-Hunger Games Josh Hutcherson.
November 21. Life of Pi: Are you ready for a heavily spiritual "trip" movie about a boy in a boat with a tiger? Well the best selling book gets a pretty adaptation this Thanksgiving season.
December 14. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (PG-13): What could be the movie of the year, more so than The Avengers, kickstarts a new trilogy in the Oscar winning series.
December 19. Monsters, Inc. 3D (G): With a prequel set to bow next year, Pixar has decided to remind everyone why they love themselves a green, wise cracking cyclops.
