2013 Preview: October

Look, it's comedy!

It’s 2013! We’re taking a look at the notable films being released each month (dates subject to change by nervous studios).

October

The Delivery Man (Oct 4) Vince Vaughn, Chris Pratt, and Cobie Smulders in a sperm donor comedy. It’s that simple.

Paranoia (Oct 4) A corporate thriller with Liam Hemsworth, Harrison Ford, and Gary Oldman.

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (Oct 4) Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez return to Sin City, along with Jessica Alba, Mickey Rourke, Clive Owen, Rosario Dawson, and others.

Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith 3D (Oct 4) Oh good, we’re done with Those Movies.

Captain Phillips (Oct 11) Tom Hanks faces off against Somali pirates in this true story. Pirates, you don’t stand a chance.

Haunt (Oct 11) It’s October, its a horror movie. Jackie Weaver stars.

Oldboy (Oct 11) The English language remake of the Korean action classic. Josh Brolin, Sharlto Copley, Samuel L. Jackson, and Elizabeth Olsen star, with Spike Lee directing.

Malavita (Oct 18) Luc Besson directs the always busy Robert De Niro, along with Michelle Pfeiffer, Tommy Lee Jones, and Diana Agron.

Gravity (Oct 18) Sandra Bullock makes another Oscar bid in what has been described as a tour de force for an actress (a role turned down by Angelina Jolie, then pursued by many others, we might add). It’s a lost in space story, also starring George Clooney in a supporting role that once belonged to Robert Downey Jr., who left when the schedule bogged down. Alfonso Cuaron directs a script by his son Jonas.

Carrie (Oct 18) The unnecessary remake of the horror classic, starring Chloe Grace Moretz.

The Seventh Son (Oct 18) The adaptation of Joseph Delaney’s fantasy novel, with Julianne Moore, Jeff Bridges, Ben Barnes, and Alicia Vikander.

Paranormal Activity 5 (Oct 25) The next installment.

The World’s End (Oct 25) The comedy stylings of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost seem a fine way to end the month.
