Sony Pictures Previews Upcoming Films

Sony Pictures is gearing up for a new year of releases and as always, they have a ton of exciting films for their fans to look forward to.

Daniel Craig, the latest (and greatest?) James Bond to-date is returning to the big screen in Skyfall in late 2012 (November 9th). Until audiences get the opportunity to be wowed by whatever crazy antics 007 has up his sleeve, they can be comforted by this sneak peak at what it’s going to be all about.

Daniel Craig is back as James Bond 007 in Skyfain late 2012 (November 9th). Until audiences get the opportunity to be wowed by whatever crazy antics 007 has up his sleeve, they can be comforted by this sneak peak at what it’s going to be all about.ll, the 23rd adventure in the longest-running film franchise of all time. In Skyfall, Bond’s loyalty to M (Judi Dench) is tested as her past comes back to haunt her. As MI6 comes under attack, 007 must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how personal the cost.

Before you get serious with Bond, take a chill pill with Adam Sandler. Sandler will be making (or trying to make) you laugh this summer (June 15) with the comedy, I Hate You Dad. Joining in on the fun is SNL star Andy Samberg.

While still in his teens, Donny (Adam Sandler) fathered a son, Todd (Andy Samberg), and raised him as a single parent up until Todd’s 18th birthday. Now, after not seeing each other for years, Todd’s world comes crashing down on the eve of his wedding when an uninvited Donny suddenly shows up. Trying desperately to reconnect with his son, Donny is now forced to deal with the repercussions of his bad parenting skills.

Next up, Hotel Transylvania. Adam Sandler also stars in this animated feature along with Miley Cyrus and Kevin James. The monster comedy is due out in the fall, September 21st.

Welcome to the Hotel Transylvania, Dracula’s (Adam Sandler) lavish five-stake resort, where monsters and their families can live it up, free to be the monsters they are without humans to bother them.  On one special weekend, Dracula has invited some of the world’s most famous monsters – Frankenstein and his bride, the Mummy, the Invisible Man, a family of werewolves, and more – to celebrate his daughter Mavis’s 118th birthday.  For Drac, catering to all of these legendary monsters is no problem – but his world could come crashing down when one ordinary guy stumbles on the hotel and takes a shine to Mavis.

Kevin James, like Sandler, has another comedy coming out this year. He’s starring in Here Comes The Boom with Salma Hayek. The film is another fall feature, hitting theaters on October 12th.

In the comedy “Here Comes the Boom”, former collegiate wrester Scott Voss (Kevin James) is a 42-year-old apathetic biology teacher in a failing high school. When cutbacks threaten to cancel the music program and lay off its teacher (Henry Winkler) Scott begins to raise money by moonlighting as a mixed martial arts fighter. Everyone thinks Scott is crazy – most of all the school nurse, Bella (Salma Hayek) – but in his quest, Scott gains something he never expected as he becomes a sensation that rallies the entire school.

Lastly, the year wouldn’t be complete without a remake and Total Recall is there to fill the voice. Look for it in theaters on August 3rd.

“Total Recall” is an action thriller about reality and memory, inspired anew by the famous short story “We Can Remember It For You Wholesale” by Philip K. Dick. Welcome to Rekall, the company that can turn your dreams into real memories. For a factory worker named Douglas Quaid (Colin Farrell), even though he’s got a beautiful wife (Kate Beckinsale) who he loves, the mind-trip sounds like the perfect vacation from his frustrating life – real memories of life as a super-spy might be just what he needs.

But when the procedure goes horribly wrong, Quaid becomes a hunted man. Finding himself on the run from the police – controlled by Chancellor Cohaagen (Bryan Cranston), the leader of the free world – Quaid teams up with a rebel fighter (Jessica Biel) to find the head of the underground resistance (Bill Nighy) and stop Cohaagen. The line between fantasy and reality gets blurred and the fate of his world hangs in the balance as Quaid discovers his true identity, his true love, and his true fate.
