Anne Hathaway as Jane Austen. Mmm, Anne Hathaway.

The Ten (imdb, wiki, apple trailer)

August 8:
Daddy Day Camp (imdb, wiki, apple trailer)
The apparently excellent Daddy Day Care has earned itself a sequel. Starring the forever sinking Cuba Gooding Jr. and directed by Kevin from The Wonder Years. Attention to all people with too much money: I will take some of it. There are things I would love to do with it.

The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters [LA/NY/SEA] (imdb, wiki, apple trailer)
A documentary about two people competing over the hi-score in Donkey Kong. This is what everyone in G&T will look like in 12 years. I highly recommend watching the trailer.

The Invasion (imdb, wiki, apple trailer)
Quasi-based on Invasion of the Body Snatchers, we have Nicole Kidman and Daniel Craig in something that is possibly a wreck. Only time will tell.

August 31:
Halloween (imdb, wiki)
Rob Zombie remakes the slasher classic, though I'm not sure why this isn't coming out in October instead. It just seems like a no-brainer. I dread what he'll do with the theme song (which I love so dearly).

Balls of Fury (imdb, wiki, apple trailer)

Ladron que roba a ladron (Bandoleros) [limited] (imdb)

I skipped Japan and the Netherlands for this month because, really, who gives a fuck? Or, more truthfully, I got lazy. If anyone wants either of them reinstated, let me know and it will [eventually] be done. My ass is poor, so I'm looking forward to seeing none of the above. But if I weren't, I'd be looking forward to Bourne, perhaps Superbad, and the Donkey Kong documentary.

Okay droogs, what are you looking forward to?

    I'll probably end up going to see Saw IV this October but I foresee that being the last time I go to a theater this year.

    Alvin and The Chipmunks looks god-awful. Seems appropriate the trailer features Alvin eating shit.

    I couldn't really figure out what to say for it, other than there are a couple of Reno 911 guys in it (one acting, one directing). Mentioning that a film has Christopher Walken in it these days is more or less the same as saying that it's a talkie.

    To answer your question, Gim, it's often only a few select cinemas that get the re-releases. Bigger or arthouse cinemas in the larger cities. We have a cinema here called The Showroom which is dedicated to showing re-releases/foreign/indie/film-festival films.

    Good to hear, I remember not being particularly impressed with the ending of Night Watch so it wouldn't exactly be a huge surprise.

    Did they keep the subtitles in the same format as Night Watch? I rmemeber being really impressed by how they worked those into the film. Showed someone pays a lot of attention.

    Saw an advanced screening of Superbad last week. My thoughts are spoiler free, but thought I'd spoiler anyway in case people want to avoid bias.
    It was pretty well done. Another of those "geeks trying to become cool" type stories. Very quotable, and Jonah Hill can carry a film. I laughed out loud quite a few times, which is something I usually don't do- especially when the humor is this juvenile. I'd say an A to even an A+ if my opinions had a grading system.... which they don't. So... Z+

    I couldn't really figure out what to say for it, other than there are a couple of Reno 911 guys in it (one acting, one directing). Mentioning that a film has Christopher Walken in it these days is more or less the same as saying that it's a talkie.

    You could say that Patton Oswalt is in it, which would be the only reason I would go see the thing.

    Ah, I was unaware that he was in it. Not that I think his involvement will make a major difference either way in the overall quality.

    Dude srsly create a newsletter for people to register. I love this, got me seeing movies I would never have heard of.
    I won't mind getting newsletter of the months movies.

    Thanks a lot :). Part of the goal of these threads is to get people to see stuff they wouldn't normally by just seeing commercials or general word of mouth. I'm not sure how I'd do a newsletter. I suppose I could PM people whenever I make the thread for each month. Would anyone else who doesn't patronize D&D regularly be interested in such a PM notice?

    I haven't seen it, but a colleague of mine told me Death at a Funeral is hilarious.
    I trust him on that.

    What I can tell you from personal experience:
    Black Sheep is indeed hilarious!

    Heeeeey, Death at a Funeral (BIFF) has Alan Tudyk in it! Might have to rock along to the Regent...
