2014 Summit Preview!

Summit Entertainment had a pretty decent year in 2013, although now that the "Twilight" years are over it's a bit of a struggle to regain that box office glory. Last year saw some solid surprises, including WARM BODIES, SNITCH, and NOW YOU SEE ME, with some mediocre ones like RED 2, ESCAPE PLAN, and ENDER'S GAME. 2014's roster is a smaller line-up with the studio taking another stab at the teen market with the YA novel adaptation of the DIVERGENT series, a sports drama with Kevin Costner, a cheesy mythology actioner, another entry in the Step Up series, and a Stalin-era serial killer thriller. Not a "knock-your-socks-off" line-up, but they may well have a few surprise hits in the mix. Let us know which one you're most looking forward to!

The Legend of Hercules (January 10)

In the epic origin story THE LEGEND OF HERCULES, Kellan Lutz stars as the mythical Greek hero Ė the son of Zeus, a half-god, half-man blessed with extraordinary strength.

Child 44 looks amazing. I'll be watching that for sure. But I'll also be watching Draft Day. I ignored the trailer for over a week because I thought the idea was stupid. After watching the trailer it actually doesn't look bad at all.

Honestly, I liked Escape Plan as much as Snitch (both were 6 out of 10 type movies for me) and I liked Ender's Game as much as I liked Now You See Me (both 7 out of 10). Red 2 was a let down but it wasn't terrible.

I want to see this franchise and Paranormal Activity in some kind of "most unnecessary sequels face off".

It does look pretty derivative from the trailer but I'm kinda glad that it seems The Hunger Games has become the teen-aimed movie franchise to emulate and hopefully the Twilight clones are being phased out.

All junk except for Child 44

Everything I have seen from all of these movies looks pretty crappy especially Hercules and Divergent. The only movie on here I have any interest in is Child 44 and that's based mostly on the awesome cast...I don't know much about the plot and haven't checked out the book. On a positive note, Tom Hardy and Gary Oldman seem like they enjoy working together and I have no issue with that as they are both frigging awesome
