Movies, TV

There are some brilliant TV programmes and films coming up this month but here are some highlights…

Film

The Avengers – Out Now

We have just recently reviewed this film and you can read it all about it here. If you like superhero films, this is an absolute must, it is an epic film!

American Pie – The Reunion- 2nd May

It’s back!! The story is that all your favourite characters get back together for their 13-year high school reunion with all the usual antics you would expect from them.

Safe – 4th May

Jason Statham returns in another classic Statham film! If you have seen ANY of Jason’s previous films then you will know exactly what to expect and won’t be dissopointed. But the man himself is well aware of what he is good at. In interview today with the BBC he said that: ”Doing something different is for great character actors. I don’t see myself as a great character actor… That’s not what my strength is.” But to be honest, we love him for what he does, being the rough tough guy!

Dark Shadows – 11th May

Johnny Depp, Tim Burton & Helena Bonham Carter as well as Eva Green and Michelle Pfeiffer join together to create this gothic comedy. Barnabas (Johnny Depp) breaks the heart of a witch (Eva Green) who turns him into a vampire and has him buried alive. Fast forward to 1972 and the vampire is awoken into a new world to find his family home in ruin and his descendants harbouring their own dark secrets. Sounds great, a typical Burton film!!

Men in Black III – 25th May

Will Smith returns in Men in Black III which sees ‘J’ being forced to time travel back to the 60′s to meet young ‘K’ and ultimately save the world! Should be quite a fun movie.
