You have read about the 5 most awaited Hollywood action flicks in my previous post. But for something as huge as Hollywood, 5 is too small a number. So here comes the next set of 5 action flicks that you just can’t afford to miss. Celebrating the season of the rising Dark Knight, action is the ultimate essence in the air. So we’ll start this list with Wolverine, a deviation from the Batman’s DC Universe to the Marvel Comics.
The X-men series was both criticized and appreciated on varied ends. So let us not dwell much on the same old debate : DC or Marvel? After The Dark Knight Rises from the Christopher Nolan stable kicked up a storm with the Batman, part of the Justice League, here is The Wolverine, which is Logan from the X-men series. The Wolverine is set to release a year later, by July 2013. The movie is being directed by James Marigold. Of course, Logan remains unchanged in the form of Hugh Jackman. Jackman is also amongst the producers. Look out for Will Yun Lee. The plot revolves around Logan’s visit to Japan and Samurai warfare. Apart from comic book credits to Chris Claremont and Frank Miller, credits on screenplay go to Mark Bomback and Christopher McQuarrie.
A Good Day to Die Hard
Bruce Willis is a busy man. Not that we fans are complaining. I mean, what with already having pocketed the Rian Johnson project, Looper, and now being back to being the old school detective, John McClane? I did not really leave much to guess work, did I ? A Good Day to Die Hard will be the 5th milestone in the critically acclaimed series, Die Hard. Bruce has been John McClane, the chief protagonist, since the very beginning of the movie series which has been inspired by Roderick Thorpe novels. This John Moore movie will see McClane and his son, played by Jai Courtney, in a native Russian brawl. Interesting, this “die hard” action flick is set to release on the 14th of February, 2013.
Iron Man III
The Avengers fraction, Tony Stark is supposedly off to China this time to fight Mandarin, arguably his toughest opponent. Directed by Shane Black, the film is set to release on the 3rd of May, 2013. Robert Downey Jr. continues to play Iron Man and Gwyneth Paltrow continues to be Pepper Potts, the assistant cum love interest. Watch out for Ben Kingsley as Mandarin. The star cast also includes Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall and many more.
Tom Cruise and Morgan Freeman. I think that is enough said about a movie to keep it in your watch list. This Joseph Kosinski project will also star Andrea Riseborough. The plot is set around the veteran soldier who is sent to a distant planet as part of mission dealing with extinguishing remains of an alien race. But in due course of the story, he begins to doubt his knowledge of the planet and his convictions. The movie is set to release by the next year, April.
Percy Jackson : Sea of Monsters
Percy is the son of Poseidon. We are familiar with this series. Remember the Lightning Thief ? In the Sea of Monsters, Percy and his friends take on this adventurous journey in search of the Golden Fleece. While Lightning Thief was of the fictional adventurous genre, Sea of Monsters is an action adventure film. Set to release by August, 2013, the direction will be from Thor Freudenthal. Watch out for Logan Lerman, Alexandro Daddario and Brandon T. Jackson. Expect lots of mythology.
