Quite a few big titles coming up this month. I have tickets to see ‘Wreck-it Ralph’ today, which should be a lot of animated, closet nerdy fun. Another movie that I have been very anxious to watch ever since its first screening in Cannes nine months ago, is the danish ‘The Hunt’ (‘Jagten’), starring Mads Mikkelsen, which I expect will be devestating but brilliant. The director, Thomas Vinterberg, was behind the heart-wrenching dogma success ‘The Celebration’ (‘Festen’, 1998), in which child-abuse was also the topic, only reversed.
February releases I’ve been looking forward to:
Other releases worth mentioning: ‘Lincoln’, ‘Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters’, ‘Anna Karenina’, ‘A Good Day to Die Hard’.
