Coming Soon: August Movies You Still Have To See

by - Monday, August 25, 2014

There's only one week left before we bid adieu to the month of August. But, if you're into the movies, there are still four notable films that you need to see. You're not going to just let this month go by without finding out how Pierce Brosnan fared in his return to the big screen in The November man, are you? Or Nancy Callahan's last dance in A Dame to Kill For, right? Or whether Mia Hall would stay or go to the other side with her family?

Sin City: A Dame To Kill For

What's It About?

It's basically about a plot where some of the most hard-boiled citizens in Sin City have crossed paths with a some of its more reviled inhabitants.This is the sequel to Sin City (2005) and based on the second book of the Sin City series by Frank Miller. However, there are 3 sub-plots not totally based on the said series. The first, and small, sub-plot entitled "Just Another Saturday Night" was actually collected from the sixth book while two sub-plots - "The Long Bad Night" and "Nancy's Last Dance" were created solely for the film.

It was released on August 22 but is yet to be shown in Philippine cinemas. So, watch out for it!

What's It About?

The story is based on the book written by Gayle Forman which follows 17-year-old Mia Hall as she deals with the aftermath of a catastrophic car accident involving her family. In a coma, Mia has an out-of-body experience, and watches as friends and family gather at the hospital where she is being treated. Mia watches as her memories flash before her eyes as she comes to realize that she must decide if she should wake up and lead a life far more difficult than she ever anticipated, or slip away and die.

Just like Sin City, If I Stay has been released last August 22 but is yet to hit Philippine cinemas. I'm actually waiting for this.

What's It About?

This movie is based on the novel There Are No Spies, a part of Bill Granger's The November Man series. The story revolves around Peter Devereaux (code-named The November Man, duh). He's a lethal and highly trained ex-CIA agent (because spies, you know) and was lured (intimidated, perhaps?) to come out of retirement and protect a valuable witness. He then found himself a target of his former CIA protege David Mason (because there will always be a mole and sleeper agent in CIA, that's how it is) and uncovered cover ups in the agency.

Anyway, release date is set on August 27, 2014. Not sure when this is coming out in the Philippines, though.
