Of course we are all looking forward to live action Conan, Solomon Kane, Bran Mak Morn and Vultures of Wahpeton western movies but are there any other movies coming out that you are really excited about seeing?

Personally, I can't wait to see the new Rocky film Rocky Balboa! Looks like it could be a real step back into the original movie magic with cast and plot. It looks really good. The original Rocky was a classic that I hold very close to my heart. I remember my Dad going to the movie and when he came home late at night telling me I had to see it. We went the next night and it was one of the best movies I ever saw. The exchange between Rocky and Mickey at the Rocks apartment is one of my favorite scenes ever. Checkout a very cool snippet of the movie:

Also, Lady In The Water from director/writer M. Night Shyamalan. I'm a big fan of his movies and usually really like them - Unbreakable being my favorite so far. This looks very different and with Night that isn't unusual and bodes well for a excellent bit of entertainment and movie making. Here's the trailer:

Lady in the Water

Another movie that looks really cool and could somehow be good is Ghost Rider. Not ususally a Nick Cage fan but this looks like it could be entertaining while staying somewhat close to the original material. Risky, but could be fun! Plus, Eva mendez is one hot mama! Checkout the trailer:

Actually, as soon as I saw the headline to this topic, Rocky Balboa was the first thing that came to my mind, lol. :lol: Glad to see I'm not the only one awaiting this movie. Not only do I hold Rocky close to my heart, but Sylvester Stallone has been my favorite actor since I was little. First Blood was actually the first movie I remember watching. (Yes it's true, parents before the 90's did allow us kids to watch an R-rated movie as long as there was no nudity. :lol: ) So not only am I looking forward to Rocky Balboa, but I'm also looking forward to Rambo 4 and Sly's untitled Edgar Allan Poe flick, which I think he'll be writing and directing, but not starring. Heard they were looking at Johnny Depp to star in it, which would be great.

Other than these movies, I can't really think of anything that I'm dying to see. Maybe Transformers: The Movie and Indiana Jones 4.

Peace,

Lol, actually all of the movies stated in the above threads I am looking forward to, except Pirates but that is because I saw it last night. However, I cannot wait for the third installment. Also looking forward to:

John Carter of Mars(long wait since John Favre is directing Iron Man first!)

Spiderman 3

Wicker Man(not too sure about this one, but I'm hoping it is a good remake)

Actually, I'm not too thrilled with the casting of Daniel Craig as Bond. He just doesn't look the part. I'll give it a shot, because I loved the book (And Bond's last, telling line in it) but I'm not expecting much. They should've just gotten Adrian Paul to play Bond since age apparently isn't a concern at his point.

The Bond movie is a weird paradox in terms of continuity-- it tells how Bond first became a double O agent, and yet it is set in modern times with the female M. It also retains all the classic Bond paraphenalia-- James Bond theme, etc. It is his latest adventure and at the same time, paradoxically, his first adventure.

Saw Pirates 2 yesterday, and can't wait to see #3-- "At World's End"-- next year. They had a preview for the Transformers movie. Looks like it is going to be fun.

Hmmmm , movies I'm really looking forward to.....
- a few sequels :

Okay , after re-reading this again - this first one I just copied from a comedian I had just watched the night before on H.B.O. - it's in kind of bad taste - even for my warped sense of humor so I'll leave my list at 'my' five............

Gibsons Passion of the Christ - part 2 : '' ThunderDome ''

the 3rd in the " Fistfull of dollars/For a Few Dollars More" saga : " Where's my change ? "

Batman Begins Again : " How Alfred Got His Groove Back "

Titanic part 2 : " The Aftermath "

Ghandi part 2 : " The Quickening '' ("....there can be only one ! " )

That would be his Mayan-themed film Apocalypto. And besides being directed by Mel Gibson, it doesn't share many similarities at all with The Passion of the Christ, unless you are counting the fact that Gibson used native actors speaking their native language, instead of caucasians speaking English. But really, that's something American studios should have been doing all along anyway, so kudos to Mel for continuing to blaze new territory in american cinema.

On a side note, the film though historical in nature, draws many interesting parallels to today's society and way of governing here in America. With this country's blinding, ultra-patriotism fad fading, I wonder how many people will catch the message and actually evaluate it, instead of blindly dismissing it.

Yes, that's exactly what I was counting. Thanks for the name... knew it reminded me vaguely of some Vietnam War movie I had seen back in the day.

Did you check out the trailer for it? The site still says Summer 2006, though I had heard December as the release date too, so who knows. But it definitley looks cool. Can't wait to see it.

*imagines Ghandi running at Christopher Lambert with a tulwar*

:D

I'm looking forward to:

The Power of the Dark Crystal

Beowulf

Sunshine

Cat's Cradle

Rendezvous with Rama

I really hope against hope that they make Rendezvous with Rama the epic masterpiece it deserves to be. We've already had to put up with countless trite "adaptations" of SF masterworks, are we not due a decent one? I've already given up hope on I Am Legend and A Scanner Darkly.

Pan's Labyrinth. Inspired by Arthur Machen, who was also quite an influence on REH.

I'm also trying to get to find some way of seeing the Road to L, which is a kind of Lovecraftian Blair Witch style mockumentary filmed in Italy. There seems to be a Lovecraft craze in Italy at present - I watched The Shunned Room last night, which is good you're into arty atmospheric horror with a splattering of gore here and there.

The Power of the Dark Crystal


Is that a remake of the Dark Crystal, or a sequel?


Beowulf


Is that animated? The cast list is extremely impressive (Anthony Hopkins, Brendan Gleeson, John Malkovich, Crispin Glover, Angelina Jolie, Robin Wright Penn, etc), so I wonder...

Renaissance looks very promising and unique. Reminds me of 1984 with more action.

In 2054, Paris is a labyrinth where all movement is monitored and recorded. Casting a shadow over everything is the city?s largest company, Avalon, which insinuates itself into every aspect of contemporary life to sell its primary export - youth and beauty. In this world of stark contrasts and rigid laws the populace is kept in line and accounted for.


Renaissance Trailer


I could see a black and white animated Conan movie working...

I just saw "A Scanner Darkly" last weekend. Very trippy movie. Very close to Philip K. Dick's novel.

I'd also like to see "Apocolypto" later this year.

Thanks for the links on the new Dark Crystal Movie. I love the original.
