My book, 50 Indian Moral Stories for Children, is out now on Amazon Kindle and is free through today and tomorrow. A Lifetime, my other book, should be out within the next few days, I’m just sorting out a few things.
There has been a delay with the release of my book (it seems the publishing process never runs smoothly) so, whilst I am left on tenterhooks, I thought I would compile another short list of hotly anticipated releases, this time in the movie world.
The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug
The second part of The Hobbit Trilogy is due for a worldwide release on the 11th of December and is sure to be a box office hit for its co-writer, producer and directer Peter Jackson.
The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug continues the adventures of Bilbo Baggins as he journeys with the Wizard Gandalf and thirteen Dwarves, on an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor.
Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues
It has been 9 years since the release of the hilarious Anchorman film, and on the 20th of December, just in time to fill the Christmas seats at the box office, Ron Burgundy returns for a second installment. This time the intrepid newsman is in New York, working on the first 24-hour news channel.
With appearances from Vince Vaughn, Steve Carell, Jim Carrey, Sacha Baron Cohen and Tina Fey, Anchorman 2 promises to be comedy gold.
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
The sequel to The Hunger Games is due for release at the end of November and follows Katniss Everdeen as she returns home from her success in the Annual Hunger Games. The novels by Suzanne Collins, on which the film is based, have sold over 50 million copies in the United States alone.
Who doesn’t love a good monster movie? In May 2014 cinema-goers will be treated to a retelling of the Godzilla story with Breaking Bad’s Bryan Cranston playing the lead role.
300: Rise of an Empire
The sequel to the visually beautiful battle-epic 300 is due for release in March next year, although director Noam Murro insists, “It’s not a sequel or a prequel, it’s different perspectives and characters in the battle between the Persians and the Greeks.”
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes
Set fifteen years after the events of the first film, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes continues the story of how a group of genetically evolved apes presided over the fall of human civilization. Due for release in the summer of 2014.
Fifty Shades of Grey
The book that has sold millions and divided opinion worldwide, is currently being adapted for our screens and will be released in August 2014. Whether you love it or hate it, it’s hard to ignore the figures (70 million copies have been sold worldwide) and the film is sure to follow suit.
2014 also sees the release of additions to the Paranormal Activity, Transformers and X-Men franchises; sequels to Horrible Bosses, The Woman in Black and The Amazing Spider-Man; the third Night at the Museum film and the completion of The Hobbit trilogy.
My book “A Lifetime” will be released on the 17th of this month. It’s a very anxious and exciting time for me, I can’t wait. It’s not exactly ‘hotly anticipated’ by anyone but a select few, but in the spirit of my own anticipation, I threw together a small list of books that everyone else is waiting for:
The Winds of Winter
A Song of Ice and Fire is a series of epic fantasy books by George R. R. Martin that first made an appearance back in 1996, with Game of Thrones. The series has sold over 15 million copies worldwide and has seen spin offs in video games, board games, card games and on television. The sixth novel, The Winds of Winter, is due for release some time in 2015.
Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy
It has been fifteen years since Helen Fielding released the last Bridget Jones book, but the sultry, hapless heroine is due to make a long awaited reappearance in October with Mad About the Boy.
Not That Kind of Girl by Lena Dunham
This forthcoming release earned the author of the sitcom “Girls” a $3.7 million advance. The book is going to be a compilation of essays of everything from dieting to dressing, it doesn’t sound like the makings of a bestseller but it’ll need to do something special for the publishers to recoup their money. Not That Kind of Girl is due for release on October 10th.
Doctor Sleep by Stephen King
This hotly antiquated title is due out in a little under two weeks. Doctor Sleep is a sequel to the 1977 hit The Shining, and has had King fans trembling in excitement since it was announced back in 2009.
J. D. Sallinger
The reclusive author of Catcher in the Rye wrote many books throughout his lifetime that he never sent away for publication. If his biography Salinger, is to be believed, we can expect a series of his books to be released from 2015 through to 2010.
