This summer appears to be an incredible movie season filled with highly anticipated films. The release of great movies is taking place this summer and fans can’t wait to see films such as Guardians of the Galaxy.
Every year, we recognize that some great movies will make it to theaters this season. Nevertheless, it’s difficult to distinguish between those that will fail and movies that will succeed.
At times, the best thing about massively popular films is that the anticipation of their release is nearly as exhilarating as eventually seeing them as soon as they hit the screens. Here’s a list of 4 movies to look forward to this August.
The Expendables 3
A continuation of the franchise, The Expendables 3 revolves around saving the United States President. What is striking about this trailer is that it actually shifts from selling the huge cast and in fact sells the film.
The initial two teasers sold the “all-star” cast understandably. The franchise’s greatest hook every time was the cast.
This time round, Lionsgate is selling the concept that this might in fact be a solid action movie with a real sense of scale and scope. The latest mission is a clash between high-tech expertise vs. old-school style in the most awaited battle yet.
As individuals Schwarzenegger, Ford, Stallone, and Willis may no longer be action stars. However, when combined, they are worth watching.
The movie will hit the screens on August 15.
Sin City: A Dame to Kill For
A prequel to Sin City (2005), this movie revolves around Dwight McCarthy and his dangerous association with the movie’s villain, Ava Lord. Fans have longed for a sequel following the successful Sin City.
The fans have had no choice but to wait for Robert Rodriguez, the director to bring it finally. The film finished principle photography in October 2012 and was ready for release in August 2013.
The director planned to release it along “Machete Kills” but experienced post-production problems and postponed the release for October 2013. At the last minute, the director couldn’t conclude the post-production, resulting in further postponement to August this year.
In spite of its setbacks, fans are anticipating the movie for its storyline and cast.
