Popcorn? Check. Drink? Check? Hot date? Check. Here at Lovestruck.com, we know that the cinema doesn’t make a particularly great first date because you don’t get to talk much. However fast forward to dates two or three and who doesn’t enjoy sitting next to someone they like in a dimly lit room, watching a film they have been dying to view for ages?
We have picked out our top five choices for films coming out in the coming months:
Lovestruck Lowdown: This project, a reboot of the movie-monster franchise has been years in the making and promises incredible special effects. Helmed by Gareth Edwards, and with a stellar A-List cast, we have high hopes. The added bonus is research shows that scary films will bring you close to your date, so don’t be afraid to grab them during the frightening parts!
Lovestruck lowdown: Tom Cruise is back with a follow-up to 2013’s “Oblivion” with another futuristic sci-fi flick about a soldier caught in a time loop ending with his death each time. Directed by Doug Lima and adapted from the Japanese novel “All You Need is Kill”, we expect this to be one more for the boys, but high drama often makes a great date flick.
Lovestruck Lowdown: It’s going to be a weepy one, so make sure you have some tissues at the ready! Two years after publication on John Green’s love story, which was a bestseller in the young adult fiction market, the film has been adapted to the big screen. It tells the story of two cancer sufferers who meet and fall in love at a support group. We did warn you…
Lovestruck Lowdown: More than eight years after it first premiered on Broadway in the US, the musical account of the life of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons heads to the big screen, under the direction of the legendary Clint Eastwood. If you haven’t seen the stageshow this looks set to be a great flick, although not for musical-haters (for obvious reasons!)
The Lovestruck lowdown: Director Jake Kasdan reunites with Diaz and Segal (who he worked with on “Bad teacher” for a crazy tale of a married couple who decide to add the spark back into their romance by making a sex tape. The plan goes horribly wrong when Jay, played by Segal, syncs it to his cloud, meaning that all their friends will be able to view it on the iPads they gave them for Christmas. We expect this to be a laugh-a-minute, fun date film.
