Lets be real, Iron Man 2 was a major let down on every account other than Robert Downey Jr, I think it must of been difficult for Jon Favreau to build upon the critical success of the first, so here we have Iron Man 3. A new director and a new vision on how to carry on the franchise. We already have the most amazing Iron Man actor in Robert Downey, now we have the unbelievable Ben Kingsley as The Mandarin. I'm super hyped for this movie, It has epic written all over it.
J.J Abrams took the Star Trek franchise and re invented it for modern audiences, but also managed to keep the greatness that Star Trek has always had. The cast is unreal and Abrams at the helm I don't see how this could fail, I can't wait to see how they explore the Star Trek world.
I was probably one of the only ones who really liked the first Thor movie, I thought Chris Hemsworth was perfect for the and having Natalie Portman as the eye candy sure wasn't bad either. Having Anthony Hopkins play Odin seemed pretty bad ass and the chemistry between brothers Thor and Loki was really original. I don't know much about Thor: The Dark World but I'm pretty excited to see where they take it.
Is this the Superman movie we have all been waiting for? I sure think so. I loved Brandon Routh's Superman, I thought he portrayed Superman perfectly, however I think the story let the movie down somewhat. Bryan Singer is an incredible director, he had everything ready for creating an amazing movie, however something just didn't click. Now with Man Of Steel, they're rebooting the franchise, starting from scratch. Zack Snyder is one of the most innovative visual directors working today, from the trailers I've seen Man Of Steel has the capacity to be unbelievable.
Robots, Monsters, Guillermo Del Toro...that's some ingredients for a major bad ass movie. Aliens better be ready for the ass whooping that's coming their way. How dare they think they can waltz up over here and take our planet? How about we make some bad ass mech robots and even up the playing field a little. I'll pretty much watch anything staring Idris Elba, so having him in the movie is a plus for me.
People can say what they like about Tom Cruise, but there's little denying he has made some amazing movies, not to mention he's a very good leading man. Oblivion, directed by Joseph Kosinski looks, from first glance, pretty interesting. This is Kosinski's second full feature movie, after the success of Tron: Legacy it seems like Joseph has been given a little more backing by the studio. Lets see what Oblivion will bring.
From the masterpiece that came from District 9, we have the eagerly anticipated Elysium. Starring Matt Damon and Jodie Foster, details are still quite vague on what the movie entails, however I've managed to dig this up from IMDB Set in the year 2159, where the very wealthy live on a man-made space station while the rest of the population resides on a ruined Earth, a man takes on a mission that could bring equality to the polarized worlds.
The Hobbit! yes please. After the success of The Lord Of The Rings trilogy it took Jackson a while to want to take on The Hobbit, I think he's the only person who could do it anyway. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey was unbelievable, it was one of my favourite movies of the year, the comedy, visuals and story were enthralling. The second part in the trilogy, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug will no doubt be something equally as special, if not even more. I wish it would hurry up and get released already.
Anchorman is a movie that needs no introductions, It was a masterpiece of comedy. Now Anchorman: The Legend Continues is nearly here and I have a spectrum of emotions. Will it be as good as it's predecessor? I very much doubt it. I don't think that's possible, will it be better? Very doubtful. Will it be a worthy sequel? I surely think so. In Burgundy we trust.
