After next week’s release of Batman: The Dark Knight Rises, I’ll be looking forward to the movies coming out in October 2012. I thought it was about time that I put together a list of some to look forward to here. I’ve already covered Hotel Transylvania and Sinister. Here are six more October movies:
Frankenweenie – Disney Pictures and Tim Burton remake the 1984 short film about a boy that brings his dog back after death. It will be the first black and white 3D feature film.
Fun Size – This teen comedy features plenty of costumes to put you in the mood for trick or treating.
Vamps – The upcoming horror comedy starring Krysten Ritter, Alicia Silverstone, and Sigourney Weaver as vampires living it up in New York City. I don’t believe the trailer for this film has been released yet.
Butter – Jennifer Garner’s new film involves two competitors in an annual butter carving contest. Apparently, they didn’t receive clearance to work on pumpkins, which would have been more timely for an October release.
Cloud Atlas – Tom Hanks and Halle Berry star in “an epic story of humankind in which the actions and consequences of our lives impact one another throughout the past, present and future as one soul is shaped from a murderer into a savior and a single act of kindness ripples out for centuries to inspire a revolution.” It is based on the 2004 book by David Mitchell.
Atlas Shrugged Part II – I know that Part I was a bit of a bust, but the sequel has staffed up with Bill Lewis and Russell Schwartz recently to help promote the second installment.
Hocus Pocus II – It probably won’t be in theaters until October 2013. But the rumor that Disney was developing a sequel to the popular 1983 movie starring Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy hit the internet in the past two weeks. It is tentatively titled Hocus Pocus 2: Rise of the Elderwitch. Because it would only be appropriate to release this movie in October, I’ve decided to include it on this list as a special preview of the movies that might be out in October 2013. Here’s the trailer from the 1993 Hocus Pocus movie to refresh your recollection:
