P.T. Anderson has yet to make a movie I dislike, and of his 5 films 3 are favorites of mine. So whenever it comes out I'm guaranteed to see it. IMDb says the U.S. release date is 2012, but we'll see if that happens.
Quentin Dupieux (currently my 2nd favorite Quentin) scored big points with me last year with Rubber, a film that currently remains my favorite from 2011 (especially since it's the most original film I saw). That alone has me ready to watch another film from him, and the trailer has me very intrigued...
The script was written by the Coens, and since I love their writing as much as their direction I'm very curious about Gambit. Plus it looks like the next Coens film may not drop until 2013, so I'll settle for this one in the meantime.
The other Lincoln movie that comes out this year. Not sure how historically accurate this one is though. ;) Been meaning to read the book & odds are I'll likely check out the film adaptation before getting around to it so I'm more likely to enjoy it.
Loved the book. And now that I'm hearing that this is planned to be the first of 3 films adapted from the source material, I'm even more excited since one film wouldn't be adequate to capture the book honorably. I think a cable series would be the best way (preferably from Showtime or HBO) to adapt it, but this will do for now.
Still need to watch The Proposition, but I enjoyed John Hillcoat's adaptation of The Road so I'm curious about this one. Add to that Tom Hardy, Gary Oldman, and Guy Pearce in the cast & the screenplay written by Nick Cave & I'm pretty much sold. Only thing that gives me pause? Shia LeBeouf is in it & I'm not a fan of his. Hopefully he won't get too much screen time. ;)
As a die-hard fan of the former members of MTV's The State, seeing that this one is written & directed by David Wain, and co-written with Ken Marino...that gets me excited. And the last film David Wain directed was Role Models, which was a pleasant surprise. So hopefully this one will be at least as good as that one. I can't tell for sure from the trailer, but it doesn't look bad in any way to me.
This one falls here simply because I'm not yet convinced that Andrew Garfield will make a good Peter Parker/Spider-Man. Plus I think it's a little stupid to be rebooting this series already, even though I wasn't impressed with Raimi's films overall. However I like what I see in the trailer, so I may end up checking this out.
At this point I feel like I have to watch The Avengers, regardless of the fact I hate Joss Whedon (yeah, bite me). The film could prove to be a train wreck, especially considering it's come together rather quickly, but even that could prove to be worth a look if all this build-up proves to be for mediocre results.
At this point I'm sick of Johnny Depp starring in every Tim Burton movie that comes out, so I'm really not that excited about this one. Plus, while I still enjoy all of Burton's films to some degree his more recent output hasn't come anywhere near the greatness of his 80s work (or even his 90s work for that matter). Maybe I need to revisit the TV series it's adapted from & see if it improves my expectations here.
Borat was comedic brilliance. Bruno was basically a rehash of that film, still entertaining but nowhere near as excellent. The trailer for this one doesn't look very good honestly (not pleased that Megan Fox is involved either), but I'll likely see it anyway in hopes they're saving the best bits for those who watch the movie.
It's The Lorax, and it comes from the same animation studio that did Despicable Me (which I loved). However it appears that it won't be very faithful to the source material, which is disappointing to me. Still, it could be worth a look.
Ah yes, the latest Bond movie. This one falls into this section due to my feelings after the last two Bond films. While I thoroughly enjoyed Casino Royale, I mostly hated Quantum of Solace. So I definitely won't be rushing off to catch this one, and will wait until I get some feedback on it to decide for sure whether I'll watch it at all.
Thanks to vnnlng for mentioning it so that I realized I should give it a spot here.
