The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkein

Back in July, director Peter Jackson (the genius behind “The Lord of the Rings” epicness) announced that he’s working on the next trilogy – a story that marks the beginning of LOTR.  If J.R.R. Tolkein’s excellent flair for writing and storytelling is anything to go by, well, “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” is going to be just as good – if not awesome.

What, you don’t believe us? Check out the trailer:

So good to see you, Gandalf! And since this one’s going to be a trilogy (all shot in digital 3D), it translates into just one thing for us – more Peter Jackson works of art. The first “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” film is slated for a release on 14th December 2012.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower

The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky

Here’s another book-turned-movie that we’re looking forward to. It scored high points with us when we reviewed it a week ago. And we still stick by what we said about it quite possibly being our generation’s new classic. “The Perks of Being a Wallflower” is tale about the coming-of-age for an awkward teenager, who is introduced to the “real world” by his older friends. “Real world” meaning, alcohol, sex, drugs, sex, homosexuality, abuse, sex, etc.

And “older friends” meaning, Emma Watson (who plays Sam):

Aww. Look at her all grown up and not doing magic. Let’s not forget the beautiful Nina Dobrev (star of “The Vampire Diaries” series) too. “The Perks of Being a Wallflower” is expected to be released on 20th September 2012 in the US.

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part II

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer

We want to watch this one because, okay, let’s be honest here, who doesn’t want to see how it ends? Whether you love it or hate it, “The Twilight Saga” is finally coming to its end of the road this year. Gotta hand it to the brains behind it though – they’ve got Twihards super anxious after all the “sneak peeks” and different versions of trailer releases. More so when they released this one, which revealed more of Bella (played by Kristen Stewart) as a vampire and little Renesmee Cullen (played by newcomer Mackenzie Foy):

Epic battle scene! So, you ready for “The Twilight Saga” to end or what? The film is expected to be released on 22nd November 2012.
