2014’s Most Anticipated Films – Robert & More.
2014 is going to be an exciting one on the film front, but this we already know. So many masterpieces are due to be released this year – some of which include our favourite stars, which makes us even more excited.
What’s even better is when an official list is released. Black Book has included some epic titles this year:
Two of Rob Pattinson’s films are included. The Rover and Maps to the Stars are both due for release later this year
Director: David Michod, finally following up his outstanding 2010 debut, Animal Kingdom.
Concept: A loner tracks the gang who stole his car from a desolate town in the Australian outback.
Cast: Guy Pearce, Robert Pattinson, Scoot McNairy.
The Skinny: Animal Kingdom was one of the most confident, assured debuts of the last decade, and I have a strong feeling this will cement Michod as one of the great modern auteurs. Also, Guy Pearce has a knack for appearing in cult classics (Memento, LA Confidential), and Pattinson showed surprising chops in 2012′s Cosmopolis. – DH
MAP TO THE STARS
Director: David Cronenberg, making his 18th film.
Concept: The entertainment industry’s relationship to Western civilization, as seen through the plight of two former child stars.
Cast: Mia Wasikowska, Julianne Moore, Robert Pattinson, John Cusack.
The Skinny: Cronenberg is always worthwhile, and turning his cerebral, surreal eye on Hollywood could wield fascinating results. Wasikowska is becoming a great actress, and it’s nice to see Robert Pattinson leap into auteur-driven art house projects, post-Twilight fame. – DH
Also of interest: Noah, starring Harry Potter’s Emma Watson and Ray Winstone (Snow White & The Huntsman). Russel Crowe takes the lead as Noah in a dark and graphic retelling of the Bible story.
11th Doctor, Matt Smith’s new project “How To Catch A Monster” is on the list too, directed by Ryan Gosling. The story of single mother of two who is swept into a macabre and dark fantasy underworld while her teenage son discovers a secret road leading to an underwater town.
