Story of Your Life
Now that all the big summer blockbusters are simmering down, we can begin to settle into the warmth of studios putting their best films on display to garner awards-attention. December is jam-packed this year, and many potentially great movies have yet to even produce a trailer.
What we have put together here is a list of ten films that are either receiving too little advertisement, or no advertisement at all. However, some have been seen at festivals and given strong reviews, and others have a lot of potentially gifted talent both in front of and behind the camera.
So here are our Top 10 Upcoming 2014 Films you may not have heard of, but should of, keep in mind with such little advertisement so close to release, sometimes studios push their films forward into next year, a lot of films on this list could have that happen to them at any given moment.
The 67th annual Festival de Cannes will start May 14th and go through May 25th. This is the second festival to Sundance that may potentially reveal to us some of the best films of 2014.
Many great filmmakers have films in competition this year for the Palme d’Or. 18 films are in competition and, at this point, it looks like it could be anyone’s game. Here’s a brief history for the last five winners:
2013 – “Blue is the Warmest Colour”
2012 – “Amour”
2011 – “The Tree of Life”
2010 – “Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives”
2009 – “The White Ribbon”
Michael Haneke’s “Amour” went on to earn both Picture and Director Oscar nominations as did Terrence Malick’s “The Tree of Life.” It could be a dark horse or a film already buzzing this year, so we’ve compiled and ranked what we think will stand-out this year and included a brief synopsis of each film so that you can make your own predictions.
Here are our predictions: (more…)
Patricia Arquette, Boyhood
Meryl Streep, Into the Woods
Keira Knightley, The Imitation Game
Jessica Chastain, A Most Violent Year
Emma Stone, Birdman
Film Review: Snow White and the Huntsman
Kristen Stewart is Snow White and Charlize Theron is the evil queen in Snow White and the Huntsman. If you are like me, at this point you are pretty burnt out on Snow White adaptations. The reason people re-adapt fairytales so often is because they are fair game to adapt, well most of them at this rate.
