Spring films set to excite

By Monique Clarke |Staff writer|

This spring, forget the winter and head out to see some of the upcoming films you are dying to see.

“Project X,” “21 Jump Street,” “The Hunger Games,” “The Lucky One,” and “The Avengers,” are just some of the titles movie lovers are talking about.

If you’re planning to throw a party for spring break, take some party tips from the movie “Project X,” which lands in theaters March 5.

The comedy follows three high school seniors who decide the best way to make a name for themselves is to throw a wild party.

It completely spirals out of control, becoming the biggest party ever that nobody will forget. The film is said to be the next “Superbad,” but better and crazier.

If you don’t think “Project X” can’t top “Superbad,” just watch “Superbad” star Jonah Hill in the upcoming movie “21 Jump Street.”

Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum are cops who are assigned to go undercover as high school students in order to find a drug dealer that has taken grip of the streets.

The film is based on the ’80s TV show that launched actor Johnny Depp’s career. Depp will make a cameo appearance in the movie, which is set for a March 16 release.

The week after, “The Hunger Games” will be making it to the big screen on March 23. The film is based on a popular young-adult book series, which is rumored to be following the footsteps of “Harry Potter” and “Twilight” as the next billion-dollar movie franchise.

The highly anticipated movie stars Jennifer Lawrence (“Winter’s Bone”) as Katniss Everdeen, Josh Hutcherson (“The Kids are All Right”) as Peeta Mellark, and Liam Hemsworth (“The Last Song”) as Gale Hawthorne are all featured in this full-length film.

The story is set in a future where one boy and girl from 12 districts are selected to compete in the annually televised competition, where the selected teenagers fight to the death on live television for the entertainment of its Capitol.

Katniss volunteers to compete in the competition as a replacement for her younger sister. The film follows her journey and fight to live.

Fans of best-selling author, Nicholas Sparks, will be happy to see “The Lucky One” make it to the screen.

The film stars Zac Efron as an Iraq War veteran who returns home to find the mysterious woman who he believed was his ‘lucky charm’ during his tour in Iraq.

Marvel fans will be happy to know the long awaited movie “The Avengers” will land into theaters on May 4.

Actors Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Hemsworth will be returning to their role as Captain America, Iron Man and Thor. Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye and Mark Ruffalo as the Hulk will be new and exciting additions to the superhero elite.

Everyone’s favorite superheroes are back to team up and fight super villain Loki, and his out-of-this-world army from taking over the Earth.

Choosing from drama, comedy or action, this upcoming movie season should hold up any movie lover’s attention before summer blockbusters come along.
