Just around the corner
Films that already have confirmed release dates on a screen near me.
Trailer for Shame
When director Steve McQueen paired up with Michael Fassbender in 2008's Hunger the results were phenomenal. And there's much to indicate that this will be an equally powerful offering.
The Artist (2011)
Trailer for The Artist
Looks to me to be a fantastic companion piece with Hugo. The sheer audacity of making a B & W silent film with a pair of unknown (at least in the U.S.) leads is enough to get any cinephile's attention. The fact that this appears to be a sheer delight and sits atop many critics Best of 2011 lists only bolsters my anticipation.
Trailer for A Dangerous Method
David Cronenberg is all one need say to get an eyebrow raise out of me. That he's breathing life into two of the 20th century's greatest minds is more than enough to get me chomping at the bit.
Have it on good authority
...that these are noteworthy films. Problem is I don't know if they'll ever find a nearby big screen.
Trailer for A Separation
It's Ebert's number 1 film of the year. And it looks to be lotr23's number one film too. Which tells me I'd be crazy not to give this a look.
Random films of interest
Built in anticipation
The subject matter, source material, etc holds inherent appeal to me.
Leonardo DiCapprio and Carey Mulligan in a shiny new film adaptation of the "Great American Novel". I'll be there!
Red Band Trailer for Goon
Yep, Jay Baruchel in yet another stupid fucking haircut. This could easily be garbage, but I'm a hockey nut. So there.
Moonrise Kingdom Official Trailer 1
There's an empty spot on my Best of 2011 list because Wes Anderson didn't release a film last year. I have no doubt that will be corrected in 2012.
Jeff, Who Lives at Home (2012)
Jeff, Who Lives At Home Official Trailer #1 - Jason Segel, Ed Helms Movie (2012) HD
The Duplass brothers took what I consider a minor step back with Cyrus, but they've still endeared themselves to me with their interesting body of work and keen eye for emotional realism. Also I really enjoy Jason Segal's work, so I can easily see myself enjoying this one.
I don't know anything about this movie except that it stars Tom Hardy and Gary Oldman and that it's about prohibition/depression era bootleggers. Sold.
Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory (2012)
HBO Documentary Films Paradise Lost 3 Purgatory - Lawyers
The gripping, powerful, and remarkably influential series of documentaries about the West Memphis 3 and the horrible injustice dealt to them by the good old American legal system comes to a happy end. This debuted on HBO on January 12th. Guess who doesn't have HBO? Fuck!
Oh what horrors the future shall bring.
All of these have my attention due to the strong previous effort from each director.
The Tall Man (2012)
Pascal Laugier's follow up to the unforgettable Martyrs. This one's an English language film dealing with some legend that I'm unfamiliar with about some scary tall guy. But it's from the guy that brought us Martyrs!
The Innkeepers (2012)
Trailer for The Innkeepers
Ti West scored huge points with me for The House of the Devil. It was one of my very favorite English language horror films of the last decade. And this trailer looks pretty badass. And how great is that music?!
From the French directing duo that brought us the marvelously bloody and intense Inside. There's a trailer out there somewhere and I think this looks 5 shades of creepy, cool, greatness. Finish your French circuit and get this DVD in my hands!
These could easily suck, but I'll be excited anyway when the time comes.
The Raven (2012)
Trailer for The Raven
A preposterous sounding story, but with John Cusack playing as Edgar Allen Poe. Admit it, you're excited too.
Dark Shadows (2012)
Tim Burton and Johnny Depp unite once again for yet another re-imagining of some Burton-friendly source material or another. This could be good or even very good, but I think we all have every right to be equally nervous that it will suck.
The Five-Year Engagement (2012)
Trailer for The Five-Year Engagement
I like Emily Blunt and I like Jason Segal. So I'm gonna see it, okay?
The names say it all.
Alongside Wes Anderson, these are the three American film makers whose work I will watch for now on on the big screen every time a new titles hits theaters. Period.
One word: Scorsese.
Two words: Joel and Ethan.
Tarantino, DiCaprio, Waltz, Samuel L, Gordon-Levitt,Sacha Baron Cohen, Jamie Fox... probably gonna be pretty good, no?
No shit I'm excited. Aren't you?!
A pair of obvious, highly anticipated films, summer/winter.
Trailer for Prometheus
Ridley Scott back in the director's chair for a prequel to one of the best movies of all fucking time. AND it stars Michael Fassbender. AND it stars Charlize. This is a strong candidate for movie event of the decade, as far as I'm personally concerned.
Trailer for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
I'm feeling like the second installment will be better than the first. Or at least provide more spectacle. But of course I can't wait for this, even if the trailer is a bit underwhelming and the troll make-up looks less than impressive.
A rundown of future film projects that are officially on my radar.
