A Look Ahead, Coming In 2012!

With 2011 done and dusted, we at the Monday Movie Show thought it was high time that we took a look ahead at what is coming our way in 2012 with trailers where available. Movies are listed in order of release date in the U.K. but these are subject to change. Read the rest of this entry

Trailer: The Woman in Black

Plot Summery: A young lawyer travels to a remote village where he discovers the vengeful ghost of a scorned woman is terrorizing the locals.

First Impression: A nice departure for Daniel Radcliffe instead of being shoe horned into kids films he has decided to show his more spooky side and this film could be creepy, i do think it might just end of being your bog standard ghost story but i do have a little hope for it.

The film is due out in UK cinema’s sometime in February.
