Fall Flicks!

By  June 30, 2009

While summer is taking its time to get here, fall flicks will arrive sooner than you think! With a line-up of comedies and dramas, both in British and American film, there’s a little something for everyone at the movies!

The Invention of Lying
Let’s start things of with a great British Comedy. This is Ricky Gervais’ (the boss from the British The Office) directorial debut! He pulled together a great cast including himself, Tina Fey, Jennifer Garner, Jason Bateman, Rob Lowe, Jonah Hill, Martin Starr, Patrick Stewart, and Christopher Guest. He also has an excellent, original and hilarious story line! It is about an alternative world where everyone tells the truth until one man figure out he can lie. Check out the trailer here. The predicted release date is September 25th.

We now move on to a great tale about the first women to ever fly. Amelia Earhart is my all time heroine… and now they have a movie all about her! It is directed by the great, Mira Nair (Monsoon Wedding, Namesake, and Vanity Fair). With a wonderful cast including, Hilary Swank, Richard Gere, and Ewan McGregor, this looks like a must-see! Check out the trailer here. The predicted release date is October 23rd.

The Boat That Rocked
From Richard Curtis, the writer of Love Actually, Bridget Jones and Four Weddings and a Funeral, comes a movie set in the 1960s about an illegal radio station that broadcasts on a boat, in the middle of the North Sea! The play rock music 24/7, whereas the Government has only allowed this type of music to be played for a certain number of hours everyday. This is another movie with a great cast; Nick Frost, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Bill Nighy, Kenneth Branagh, and Rhys Ifans. Check out the trailer here. The predicted release date in the US is sometime in November.

The Stepfather
Lonely Boy, Penn Badgley, stars in a new thriller about his stepfather with a dangerous secret. Dan Humphrey is expanding his acting skills! Check out the trailer here. The predicted release date is October 16th.

Last but no least is a film with the one and only Ronald Weasley! Rupert Grint plays an Irish teenager who is ready for a fun, relaxing summer with his best friend. But when a new girl moves to town, she encourages a dirty competition for her heart. With a wild ride of drinking, drugs, sex, and a deadly end to the competition, this thriller sounds intense! Unfortunately there hasn’t been a release date for the US. But, if it doesn’t come out in theaters, just buy the DVD! Check out the trailer here.
