Not a great month, with yet another Resident Evil film (Resident Evil Retribution) being dredged up to cash-in on gamer girl/boy enthusiasm, a Judge Dredd film (Dredd) being released, however there are a couple of blips on the interest radar:
- Hotel Transylvania. Due for release September 21st. An animated film directed by Genndy Tartakovsky, voice talent provided by Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Fran Drescher, David Spade, Steve Buscemi, Miley Cyrus, Ceel-Lo & Molly Shannon. Plot Summary: Dracula runs a 5-star resort where monsters and their families reside – specifically Frankenstein & The Bride, The Mummy, The Invisible Man, werewolves, Quasimodo and others – away from meddling humans. Unfortunately, a normal human discovers the hotel and falls in love with Dracula’s daughter. This will not be a gory horror film, but instead an adorably cute and heartwarming tale of friendship and ‘wuv’ overcoming all obstacles.
- Looper. Due for release September 28th. Directed by Rian Johnson, starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis, Emily Blunt, Jeff Daniels, Piper Perabo & Paul Dano. Plot Summary: in the future time travel has been perfected, allowing the government to send assassins back and forward in time to kill some of the world’s most dangerous criminals. One of those assassins realises that one of their targets is his future self. This film involves the same team behind Brick, and has an admirable cast that should make this Sci-Fi a tense and enjoyable thriller.
