Elysium - Neil Blomkamp follow up District 9 should be a good one. Matt Damon and Jodie Foster add star power the story about the rich vs. poor. In this instance the poor people all reside on a damaged earth and the wealthy live in a space station. I am eager to see what Bloomkamp can do with this movie.
Star Trek Into Darkness - I used to be just a Star Wars guy but J.J. Abrhams changed that somewhat when he released the massively entertaining Star Trek in 2009. It has been 4 long years and now he is finally putting the final touches on the sequel. I am expecting just as much fun this time around, and looking forward to seeing who the new (or old) villain is.
The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug - I am interested in whatever director Peter Jackson touches. I found The Hobbit to be very entertaining and am eager to see it again. Now we have to wait to see even more from Jackson with The Hobbit sequel coming out much later this year.
Only God Forgives - Count me in for anything that re-teams Drive mastermind Nicolas Winding Refn with awesome actor Ryan Gosling. I really loved Drive and this one seems like it will be a good ride. All the plot details I can find is that it is about a Bangkok police lieutant and a gangster settle their differences in a thai boxing match, count me in! This is a very short clip of the movie (it is all that is out right now):
The World's End - Comic duo of Nick Frost and Simon Pegg reunite with director Edgar Wright (all three made Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz together). I love anything that these three make together and I see no reason why this will not be another amazingly funny and well done movie.
Thor: The Dark World / Iron Man 3 - I will lump these two together because Marvel films are sort of interconnected anyway. The first Thor was a real treat, and a movie I did not expect to like as much as I did. I think Chris Hemsworth was perfect for the role and is a underrated actor. Iron Man 3 should be a nice bounce back movie after part 2 left me somewhat disappointed Shane Black is now taking over the directorial duties and I can't wait to see what he does with Tony Stark in this installment.
Man Of Steel - I feel that we haven't had a good Superman film since Superman II was released way back in 1980! Superman Returns (2006) left me with a bad feeling, since it was suppose to reboot Superman. I feel for Zach Snyder because Superman is the hardest of all heroes to do well. He only has a few interesting villains. The trailers for the movie seem interesting and taking thing is a much different direction. I am eager to see what they do with Superman in this one.
A Place Beyond The Pines - A movie I did not think would be on this list but the trailer looks just amazing. Ryan Gosling and Bradley Cooper star in this crime drama. I feel this could be a really good movie from the look and feel of the trailer. Anything with Gosling and Cooper seems to be really well done of late and I feel this could be another movie to add to their impressive lists.
This Is The End - I already wrote a blog about Seth Rogen's directorial debut that stars tons of his friends who party while the world ends. Looks to be comedy gold. Click HERE to read that blog.
