    Other than Spiderman 3, the next Harry Potter and the Transformers movie, I'm not even really too sure of what all else is coming out. Your list has helped, I'll have to do some more research on my own too and will check out that wiki link...

    In general though, all these sequels and remakes are getting a bit much IMO. There are exceptions of course, but it seems like there aren't many new, fresh ideas coming out of Hollywood anymore. Everything is all about remaking old films, playing it safe and focusing more on the marketing side of things than anything. Yeah, it's a business like anything else so of course money is the #1 priority, but regardless, it's pretty sad really. :cool:

    I'll be seeing it in a DLP theater, if at all possible.

    Fantaastic Four 2 Im waiting on. Loved that comic book as a kid and the first movie was a great job of remaking this one in my view. Plus Jessica Alba is easy on the eyes;) Flame On!

    Just looking at the list up there - it makes one wonder if there are any non-sequal/prequal movies to look forward too...are original ideas dead at this point?

    Didnt know there was going to be a 3rd Bourne movie. I will now eagerly await it as I think the other two are probably the best actions movies made for a long time (if ever). Theres no needless explosions, no superhuman strength, no over use of CGI (if any) its all real and damn good.

    Me like!

    Keira... er... i Mean Pirates 3 holds some interest for me too.

    Hmmm....lotsa sequels this year.


    Harry Potter and the Order of the Pheonix
    300
    Bourne Ultimatum
    Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End
    Spider-Man 3
    FF2: Rise of the Silver Surfer (first one was bad, but fun. This one looks like it might be cool and good, though.)
    Transformers (never saw/read/played anything Trasformers, but this looks so freaking sweet)
    Die Hard 4
    Farenheit 451
    Beowulf (Neil Gaiman helped to write it! Yay!)
    The Lovely Bones (I might even pick up the book)
    National Treasure 2: The Book of Secrets

    that's just off the top of my head. I'll probably see ads for other movies that look good.

    I have found that they are far and few between. Many of my favorite movies of recent years have either received no publicity or have only played in a handful of theaters for a few weeks. Alas, these films seem too smart for Hollywood, who appear only interested in churning out easy-money sequels and remakes to appeal to the masses. :rolleyes: :cool:

    OK, let's get the sequels out of the way first.


    The Bourne Ultimatum
    Sin City 2
    Ocean's Thirteen
    Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End
    Rush Hour 3
    National Treasure 2: The Book of Secrets
    (will wait for DVD release)
    Mr. Bean's Holiday


    There are a few I've seen the trailer for, and look good.


    300
    Ratatouille
    The Simpsons Movie


    And to save myself from looking like a complete ass, here is the list of films I want to watch based on great directors.
    Some are only slated and not confirmed for 2007 but, anyway...


    The Invasion - Oliver Hirschbiegel
    Zodiac - David Fincher
    My Blueberry Nights - Wong Kar Wai
    No Country for Old Men - The Coen Brothers
    Be Kind Rewind - Michel Gondry
    Beowulf - Robert Zemeckis
    Grindhouse - Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez
    Fahrenheit 451 - Frank Darabont
    Cassandra's Dream - Woody Allen
    Blink - Stephen Gaghan


    Looks like I'm going to be spending quite a lot of money at the theaters this year :eek:

    This sounds interesting, I'll have to look into it more...

    I did enjoy the last couple, although the original was still my favorite. I'll see what the reviews are like before I see this one.

    I saw/read/played with Transformers from the very beginning and can tell you that this looks pretty bad from the tralier. I would like to be proved wrong, but then again, how much can one expect from Michael Bay? :(

    I loved the book, I wonder how good this film version will be? The sad thing is, I wonder how many people have no clue that this is even based on a book?

    Oh, and I see they're making another Alien versus Predator. Can they drive those franchises into the ground any further??? :rolleyes:

    Oooh, I wasn't aware of this one either. (This is going to prove to be quite the useful thread! ;))

    I love Fincher's work and have always been fascinated with the Zodiac case - I read the book on the subject many years ago. I'll definitely add this to my list of films to check out in more detail. Thanks. :cool:

    Not in the UK yet, as far I know. I can't imagine many distributors queuing up to show it... also saw The Fountain the other day. Superb...

    Are they still thinking about a Metroid movie?

    And I really want to see Saw 4 if it comes out, even if only to see how much more they managed to mess it up.

    Yes, I'm back in Tokyo for the month and I'm worried that I won't be able to see it anymore once I go back to the States.

    Ah yes, The Fountain... I still haven't made up my mind on whether I like it or not... might require a second viewing.

    I'm only really looking forward to films that were released in the end of 2006, but haven't made their way here to Phoenix yet:

    Children of Men
    Pans Labyrinth
    Notes on a Scandal
    Perfume: The Story of a Murder
    Letters from Iwo Jima

    Most movies coming from Hollywood have no original ideas. If you see movies that aren't created to be blockbuster cash cows, you can end up seeing some very great films that are very original. You just need to find them. If you live outside of LA or NY (plenty of places to see independent films in these cities), see if you have a smaller art-house/independent type theatre in your city.

    It's already shown in NYC. I'm going to see it here in Chicago at the end of the month. I'll let you know how it is. :)

    I liked it because it was refreshing to see something that displayed a little intelligence and ambition, and on production values alone, was one of the best-looking and beautifully-edited pictures I've seen for a long time; images from it have stayed in my mind for days. Bit like a cross between Altered States and Solaris...


    Cheers, Lee. I understand it's long and also murky. Good. :D

    Sin City 2

    I was so impressed by the first one -- I hope this one lives up to my expectations.
