Coming soon: Album and movie releases

Film Title: “Gone”

Starring: Amanda Seyfried

Release Date: Feb. 24

Amanda Seyfried is best known for her her roles in light-hearted movies like “Mean Girls” and “Mamma Mia!” but has recently taken a turn to prove herself as a more serious actress. With the disasterous “In Time”–in which she starred alongside Justin Timberlake– as the most recent movie under her belt, “Gone” will prove whether Seyfried has the chops to take on high-intensity roles.

Film Title: “Thin Ice”

Starring: Alan Arkin, Billy Crudup

Release Date: Feb. 28

Greg Kinnear stars as a conniving insurance agent who in turn is blackmailed by a deranged locksmith. Set against the snow-covered backwoods of Wisconsin, the film’s quirky, dark comedic tones could prove to make a surprise hit for Kinnear. Keep an eye out for a hilarious turn by Oscar winner Alan Arkin, as a senile man who is scammed out of his valuable old violin.

Album Title: “Some Nights”

Artist: fun.

Release Date: Feb. 21

Despite their unusual name, fun. is one of the bands to watch for 2012. While their first album, 2010’s “Aim and Ignite,” identifies their signature theatrical indie-pop style, it is their follow-up that will prove if the band has staying power. Hopefully, they remain as “fun” as their name suggests.

Album Title: “All of Me”

Artist: Estelle

Release Date: Feb. 28

The first album in four years from this London-born rapper-singer will have to remind audiences exactly what makes Estelle special. Expect more catchy tunes and English charm from this “American Boy” artist.
