Upcoming new Movies 2014
If you didn’t know already, December will the see the release of the star studded musical adaptation of Stephen Sondheim’s 1987 hit show ‘Into the Woods’, a wonderfully dark twist on the Brothers Grimm fairy tales. In tow are Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt, Chris Pine, Anna Kendrick, Johnny Depp, James Corden and Christine Baranski, to name but a few. But, it’s not in the cinemas until Christmas Day of this year.
If you, like me, need to please your inner child with a bit of kid friendly movie magic, then you’ll be happy to know that there are some amazing children’s films being released in the coming months.
Starring: Elle Fanning Simon Pegg, Toni Collette
A young orphaned boy finds himself falling in with quite the strange crowd and is raised by underground cave-dwelling trash collectors called the Boxtrolls. In his teenage years, he is put in a position that sees him trying to save his friends from an evil exterminator. It’s based on the children’s novel ‘Here Be Monsters’ by Alan Snow and is directed by Graham Annable and Anthony Stacchi.
Starring: Zoe Saldana, Channing Tatum, Christina Applegate
A coming of age 3d-animation that doubles up as a romantic comedy. Not bad. Here, Manolo, a young man who is torn between fulfilling the expectations of his family and following his heart, embarks on an adventure that spans three fantastical worlds where he must face his greatest fears. This is director Jorge R. Gutierrez’s first feature length and is looking like it’s going to be a lot of fun.
Starring: Genesis Rodriguez, Maya Rudolph, Jamie Chung
Disney are at it again, creating another wonderfully loveable character called Baymax, a somewhat inflatable robot that is the friend of main character Hiro. Hiro becomes the target of an evil genius who wants to take over the world and he is forced to team up with 5 other super heroes in order to protect the nation. With ‘Frozen’ and ‘Wreck It Ralph’ having been huge hits for Disney, it looks like they could have another hit under their belts with Big Hero 6.
Penguins of Madagascar – Release date 26 November, 2014 USA
Starring: John Malkovich, Benedict Cumberbatch, Peter Stormae
Described best by DreamWorks, ‘Super spy teams aren’t born…they’re hatched. Discover the secrets of the greatest and most hilarious covert birds in the global espionage biz: Skipper, Kowalski, Rico and Private. These elitists of the elite are joining forces with a chic undercover organization, The North Wind. Led by handsome and husky Agent Classified (we could tell you his name, but then…you know). Together, they must stop the villainous Dr. Octavius Brine, from destroying the world as we know it.’ Another edition to the highly successful Madagascar franchise. Looks great.
Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day – Release date 10 October 2014 USA
Starring: Steve Carell, Jennifer Garner, Ed Oxenbould,
Setting animation aside, we have the big screen adaptation of Judith Viorst’s book of the same name, directed by Miguel Arteta, setting its humour keenly on kids. Following Alexander, the unluckiest kid you could imagine, the film shows a day in the life of him and his family as their day just seems to go from worse to worse.
Looking into the future, here are the kids films coming in 2015
Starring – Rihanna, Steve Martin, Jennifer Lopez, Jim Parsons
Coming from DreamWorks in 2015 is ‘Home’ based on Adam Rex’s 2007 children’s book ‘The True Meaning of Smekday’. When an alien race called the Boov invade earth to rid it of the human race and make it their new home, a girl called Tip and a Boov named Oh are the only ones who can save the people from being banished from the planet.
B.O.O. Bureau of Otherworldly Operations – Release date 5 June 2015
Starring: Seth Rogen, Melissa McCarthy, Bill Murray
Another DreamWorks animation, for you, about the Bureau of Otherworldly Operations (B.O.O.), a top-secret government agency that employs ghosts to protect humans from evil hauntings. When two new agents named Jackson Moss and Watts uncover a plot by the agency’s Most Wanted Haunter to destroy B.O.O., they must use their skills to defeat his ghost army and save the world. We’re yet to get a real feel for the film but it sounds like great fun.
Starring: Amy Poehler, Mindy Kaling, Lewis Black, Bill Hader
I can’t wait to see ‘Inside Out’! The film will be set in the head of a young girl, Riley Anderson, where five emotions familiar emotions (Joy, Anger, Disgust, Fear and Sadness) try to lead the girl through her life… obviously things are not going to go as smoothly as they’d hope and with the voice actors they’ve got on board for the project, I’d say this is going to be a hit.
Starring – No voice actors
To screen ahead of the feature length ‘Inside Out’, which opens June 19 2015.
With art work as adorable as this, how could this fall short of anything but brilliant. It tells the tale of grumpy volcano Uku and his love interest Lele, a mountain far across the sea. Director James Ford Murphy said how he wanted people to fall in love with a place that is also a character, et voila, we have Uku. It’s a short one, lasting just seven minutes, but as with every Pixar short, you can expect the most recent tools and technology to have gone into its development. Can’t wait.
