I hereby declare March 2012 Fantasy Movie Month!
John Carter comes out on March 9. I’ve read the book and really liked it, hopefully the movie will be just as good.
Then, on the 23rd, it’s The Hunger Games! I still haven’t read the book, so this isn’t one I’m personally looking forward to. But there are lots of fans out there and most likely there will be huge crowds for the midnight showings.
Next, on the 30th, we’ve got two movies to choose from! Mirror Mirror and Wrath of the Titans are both released this weekend.
Mirror Mirror I am very excited about because it’s going to be gorgeous. It’s a retelling of the Snow White fairy tale and there aren’t too many ways this could go wrong. Unless the acting is just terrible, but that shouldn’t be a problem.
And finally, Wrath of the Titans. It’s essentially a big, loud, summer-blockbuster of movie that’s being released in March. I’m guessing lots of explosions, lots of monsters, lots of cool fight scenes. Will it be a good movie? Probably not. But it will be a fun one.
Also in March: It’s not a movie but HBO is finally releasing Game of Thrones Season 1 on DVD! It’s being mailed on March 6th so there will be just enough time to catch up with last season before season 2 starts.
