Battle: Los Angeles

On March 3, 2011, the battle for Los Angeles begins. Seems to be like another alien invasion movie where earth fights back. The trailer looks like Independence Day meets Black Hawk Down. It looks pretty cool.(Just realized that Independence Day was released 14 years ago. Gosh I am old!)

The King's Speech

The Oscar race is underway. And the leaders of the pack are The Social Network, The Fighter and The King's Speech. I've watched the first two movies mentioned. I am still waiting for this one. So looking forward to this. I thought The Social Network and The Fighter were excellent films. I assume this one is going to be excellent as well. Plus, it would be great if Colin Firth would snag the Best Actor award for this.

Cowboys & Aliens

Jon Favreau! Good actor and awesome director. He directed Iron Man 1 and 2. Sadly he won't be directing the third Iron Man film. He opted to pursue directing other feature films. Which isn't so bad. He's a talented director who wishes to stretch his creative wings. As a glimpse of the awesome movies we can expect from Jon Favreau in the future. Here is the trailer for Cowboys & Aliens. What's it about? Well the title speaks for itself.

True Grit

The nominees for the 2011 Gloden Globes was recently announced. And they showed no love for this film. It was snubbed and got no nominations. Not sure why, but I did read somewhere that this will still be a contender for the Oscars. We'll just have to wait and see I guess.

This film is adapted from a 1968 novel of the same name. It's the 2nd time it's been made into a movie. The first movie was released in 1969 and starred John Wayne in a role that won him an Oscar for Best Actor. The updated version now stars last years Best Actor winner Jeff Bridges. Along with Oscar nominees Matt Damon & Josh Brolin. Getting positive reviews for her performance as well is 14 year old actress Hailee Steinfeld.

Transformers: Dark of the Moon

Also in 2011. Transformers 3! They've titled this installment as Dark of the Moon. Don't really have high hopes with this one. Revenge of the Fallen really sucked! Michael Bay said it didn't turn out so good due to the writers strike. We'll they can't use that excuse on this one. They have major repair to do with this franchise. It's make it or break it time for the Transformers.

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides

The trailers for movies to look forward to in 2011 just keep rolling in. Pirates of the Caribbean is setting sail again for a fourth installment. I love the first three and so I had my fears with this one. There is such a thing as one sequel too many. I think the Pirates franchise ended on a good note with 'At Worlds Ends'. I didn't want the series to be ruined by an unnecessary follow up. Plus, Captain Jack Sparrow is on of my all time fave movie characters. But the trailer shows that the Pirates are just getting started. Captain Jack is Back!

Thor & Green Lantern Trailers

Next year, Marvel & DC will be releasing 2 new superhero movies. Marvel presents to you, the God of Thunder, Thor starring Chris Helmsworth. And DC gives us Green Lantern starring Ryan Reynolds.

I'm familiar with both heroes. I love the actors they picked to play the parts. I've been waiting for this movies to be made since I was young. But I had my doubts on whether they would do a good job with the movies. I found it hard to imagine how they could make these two movies appealing and cool. After looking at the trailers. My doubts are gone. So excited to see these films next year.
