It’s a new year, and along with the resolutions you’ve probably already broken, there’s a fresh slate of films to look forward to, and Nerd Bastards has chosen 25 to keep your eye on. Some titles you’ll know, others you might not, but one thing’s for sure, by the end of the year you’ll think some of them rocked and the rest of them sucked. As to which films will go which way, I’ll let that be a pleasant surprise.

In a press release from FOX today they announced the release date for quite a few of their upcoming projects. In addition to the sequel for X-Men: First Class, releasing July 18th 2014, and the Rise of the Planet of the Apes sequel, titled Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and releasing May 23, 2014, they also announced release dates for Steven Spielberg’s Robopocalypse, Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters, Epic, and Independenc Day 3D, or rather ID43D.
Yes, they’re really going to market this one as ID43D. W.T.F?
Check out the full press release below,
Los Angeles (May 31, 2012) __ Twentieth Century Fox announced today some major additions to its 2013-14 release slate, along with some date changes.
On the heels of the $344 million worldwide success of TITANIC 3D, the studio and director Roland Emmerich, in conjunction with Stereo 3D, which did the work on TITANIC, will produce a top quality 3D version of the iconic INDEPENDENCE DAY. ID43D will be released worldwide on July 3, 2013.
The studio also staked its 2014 summer with three giant tentpoles. First up, Fox, together with Disney and Dreamworks, has shifted the release of Steven Spielberg’s epic ROBOPOCALYPSE to go worldwide on April 25, 2014, the same weekend that “Avengers” was released internationally this year. Disney distributes domestically. (ID43D now occupies its former release date.)
Then on Memorial Day (May 23, 2014), Fox unleashes DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES worldwide, the sequel to the $483 million grossing RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES. Rupert Wyatt, who helmed the 2011 smash, returns to direct. The returning producers are Peter Chernin, Dylan Clark, Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver.
And on July 18, 2014, Fox releases worldwide the third of its summer tentpoles, the currently untitled X-MEN, to be directed by Matthew Vaughn.
Other 2013 dates include the following: PERCY JACKSON: SEA OF MONSTERS, based on Rick Riordan’s publishing phenomenon, goes out August 16, 2013, moving from March 15. And Fox earlier announced that Beyoncé Knowles would headline the voice cast of EPIC, in theaters May 24, 2013, from the makers of “Ice Age” and “Rio.” The film was previously known as “Leafmen.” Also joining the cast are Josh Hutcherson, Amanda Seyfried, Johnny Knoxville, Aziz Ansari, Jason Sudeikis, Steven Tyler, Blake Anderson and Judah Friedlander.
Zack Snyder‘s Sucker Punch has been talked about quite a bit since its opening last weekend, and unfortunately not for great reasons. (read NB’s Editor-in-chief, Luke Gallagher’s review here) I haven’t had the chance to take in the sexy girl, samurai and dragon fightin’, nerdgasm fantasy epic yet so I in no way have much of an opinion. I do plan on seeing it, but you can understand how my enthusiasm waned when everyone was telling me it was utter crap. Currently Sucker Punch is holding a 20% on Rotten Tomatoes and it only made $19 million its opening weekend. Yikes! You never know, years from now Sucker Punch might climb to cult status and people will be swapping stories of how they loved it from the get go (which is all lies, because if that was the case all cult classics would be box office sensations).
Maybe you’re still on the fence about whether or not you want to cough up the 10 bucks (or $12 or $15 depending where you live and if you want 3D & Imax) to see Sucker Punch. Well Warner Bros. really wants you to see Sucker Punch, so much so they’ve released the first six minutes of the film online. They want you to share in Snyder’s fantasy, and they would like to make a little of that $82 million budget back. Double yikes!
Watch below and let us know if you’ve changed your mind about seeing Sucker Punch. Has this little appetizer piqued your interest?
