Up Coming Movies

This is always a hit or miss list.  When you go back and look at the movies that I was really looking forward to a year ago, there were some excellent choices (Toy Story 3) and some complete and utter disasters (The Last Airbender). And please note…the list will not have specifically 20 movies…that will change, up and down, with time. But anticipation is 3/4th the fun…and so, in chronological order, here are my most anticipated movies of the year… Battle:  Los Angeles, February 18, 2011

Hangover 2, May 27, 2010

Hangover is the highest grossing R-rated movie of all time….and is a cultural phenomenon.  Everyone I know has watched it multiple times.  Will the sequel will be anywhere as good?

Cowboys & Aliens, July 29, 2011 Now that Jon Favreau has exited the Iron Man Series, he jumps to an alien movie set in the wild, wild west.  With a cast made up of Daniel Craig, Harrison Ford, and the lovely Olivia Wilde, this should be interesting at least.

The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, December 21, 2011

The Stieg Larson Millenium Trilogy is clearly a worldwide phenomenon.  And the European version of these movies, starring the amazing Noomi Rapace, are some of the best European films I  have seen in a long time.  Hollywood can’t help but try to replicate that success…I wish them luck.
