When i got into the office this morning, i decided to scout some of my movie sites and stumbled upon a movie (The Raid: Redemption) came out in 2011. Looking up the trailer on YouTube i was like WOW!!! Looked it up on IMDB and saw it had a whooping rating of 8.40 😮 . Hence i decided to list some movies to look out for on the big screen this year.
5. HUNGER GAMES
In a dystopian future, the totalitarian nation of Panem is divided between 12 districts and the Capitol. Each year two young representatives from each district are selected by lottery to participate in The Hunger Games. Part entertainment, part brutal retribution for a past rebellion, the televised games are broadcast throughout Panem. The 24 participants are forced to eliminate their competitors while the citizens of Panem are required to watch. When 16-year-old Katniss’s young sister, Prim, is selected as District 12’s female representative, Katniss volunteers to take her place. She and her male counterpart Peeta, are pitted against bigger, stronger representatives who have trained for this their whole lives. The movie stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Stanley Tucci and its directed by Gary Ross.. From the trailer, reviews and a rating of 7.7/10 the movie is a must see… 😉
4. THE RAVEN

The movie stars John Cusack, Alice Eve, Luke Evans, Brendan Gleeson and its directed by James McTeigue. Would be released in the cinemas on April 27.
