My Highly Anticipated Movies
Transformers 2 (26 June 2009). Was there any doubt it would be at the top of my list?
Star Wars: The Clone Wars (15 August 2008). The animation style is that of the creators of Samurai Jack, so it should be pretty spectacular. And it’s NOT written by Lucas, so we can all breathe a sigh of relief.
The Dark Knight (18 July 2008). I didn’t think Christian Bale would work for me as Batman after seeing him in American Psycho, but I loved the dark undertones and the grittiness of Batman
Returns Begins (note from AB: brain blipped there), so yeah, I’m now a fan, despite Katie Holmes. And I hear Heath Ledger is absolutely chilling as The Joker.
Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs (1 July 2009). I didn’t like the sequel as much as the original, but I love Diego too much not to watch.
Hellboy II: The Golden Army (11 July 2008). The sequel has a bigger budget, so I’m hoping the final battle with the big baddie won’t be as meh as in the first movie.
WALL•E (27 June 2008). It’s Pixar. ‘Nuff said.
Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (22 May 2008). Sean Connery won’t be in it, but I’m sure Shia LaBeouf will make up for it.
X-Men Origins: Wolverine (1 May 2009). They’re not going with the “Origins” 4-issue story arc by Paul Jenkins, Bill Jemas, & Joe Quesada, but I hear Gambit’s going to be in the movie.
The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor (1 August 2008). Rachel Weisz opted out of the movie due to a bad script, but nothing can be as bad as The Scorpion King.
The Incredible Hulk (13 June 2008). I’m not sure about Edward Norton as Bruce Banner, but as long as the CGI isn’t as noticeable as it was in the first movie with Eric Bana, I’ll be okay.
Iron Man (2 May 2008). Iron Man is not one of my favorite characters, but I’ve always had a soft spot for Robert Downey Jr. Whatever his problems, the man can act.
Will Eisner’s The Spirit. (16 January 2009). I’m a Frank Miller fangirl.
Tropic Thunder (15 August 2008). It’s a Ben Stiller comedy. I’m there.
