Eagerly Anticipated Film Releases

Image

 

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.

Godzilla

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.

Nearly There

Not long now until my book is released. Could be a matter of hours…

This business of publishing and promoting has kept me busy beyond belief, but I still found time to put the finishing touches to another project I have been working on for a while. I won’t say much for now, but that project should be released in the next few weeks and can be enjoyed by all ages… it’ll all be revealed in time.

For now, A Lifetime is moments away.

I am amazed I managed to complete another project to be honest, although luckily most of the work had been done a few months back. To all my fellow authors out there, how did you fill the time between stressing and promoting?

“A Lifetime” is the story of a struggle. Of one man born into nothing and who fights to make his way through life, to leave the place of his birth – a place of suffering and strife – and to create a new life elsewhere. To find himself a wife, to start a family and to achieve the things he thought unachievable.

It is a story of success, loss, delight and grief; a story of what it means to have everything and what it feels like to have nothing. It is also a story of the very special bond between a father and his daughter.

Busy. Busy. Busy.

I never thought that publishing a book would be easy, but I never thought it would be this hard.

My new book (my first book) “A Lifetime” is still in production and should be available soon, but there’s a lot of work to do beforehand. Publishing is a very rewarding experience (I’m sure) but there is a lot of stressful and often tedious work that goes into it.

Did any writers out there have an easier, stress-less experience when publishing their first book?

And whilst I’m on the subject, I’m looking for reviewers for “A Lifetime” and have a number of copies (ebook and print) to give away to anyone who is interested. So, please get in touch if you are! You can email me at MorrisFenris (at) gmail (dot) com.
