I have been reading quite a bit recently about the new Heath Ledger movie coming out soon, The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus. What I’ve seen of it so far looks pretty good, and with Terry Gilliam at the helm it promises to be a wild ride. Also recently (fairly) announced is the upcoming World of Warcraft movie, Rise of the Lich King. Sam Raimi is scheduled to direct, and I’m expecting it to be a Star Wars-ish type story of a good kid turned black armor-wearing villain.
Thor is still underway, (set as a LotR style epic fantasy) as is Spiderman 4, (with Lizards!) Venom in his own spin-off movie, (with extra anger!) Iron Man 2, (with alcoholism!) The Hobbit, (Peter Jackson producing and Guillermo del Toro directing) Where the Wild Things Are, Cirque du Freak: The Vampire’s Assistant, The Men Who Stare at Goats, Sex in the City 2, (sue me) Jonah Hex, The Green Hornet, Green Lantern, (isn’t everyone going green?) … and I haven’t even seen Zombieland yet!
I don’t know what I’m looking forward to most, though I know that it’s likely I’ll only be watching the new Harry Potter (July 15, 2011!) in the theaters. Lena and I have Netflix and an embarrassment of other movie watching riches at home, and we tend to eschew $10 movie tickets and $6 bottles of water as a result.
But what are you guys excited about? What will plant your butt in a movie theater seat, or at least make it into your DVD queue? I know there’s much more than I’ve mentioned out there. What do you want to see?
