Happy New Year!

Well, Happy New year, and I hope your hangover is now a thing of the recent past ;) Having discussed it at length with the other half, here's a list of those movies I'll be wanting to see this year, and their tentative release dates (according to IMDB, that is)...

7 January 2011
The King's Speech Looks like being a fun film, and with the actors listed (Colin Firth, Geoffrey Rush and Helena Bonham Carter), it should be a very well done movie, too!
18 February 2011
Paul The lads from 'Hot Fuzz!' and 'Shaun of the Dead' (Nick Frost and Simon Pegg) are back, this time, on holiday (different characters, but never mess up a good comedy team!) - and this time, there's ALIENS!
4 March 2011
The Adjustment Bureau I've read the short story by Philip K. Dick, and that was powerful... wonder if this version will live up to the short story?
RESCHEDULED FOR 2012, and now brought forward to September 2011 again. You'd think they could mke their minds up!
Apollo 18 Interesting poster and implied plot line...! Just a shame that they've reset the release date TWICE now, to 6th January, 2012. While nothing's been said publicly, I tend to think they've probably got either studio problems or post-production issues to deal with. Here's the wiki on it, anyhow...
29 July 2011
Captain America: The First Avenger To be watched on the strength of reading the comics as a nipper!
12 August 2011
Cowboys & Aliens Ooo... Daniel Craig kicking Alien butt... should be vastly entertaining!
16 September 2011
Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy While I don't think this will surpass Sir Alec Guinness' miniseries excellence, with Gary Oldman in the driving seat, it should be interesting, at the very least!
7 October 2011
Johnny English Reborn AHA! Ole' Rubber Lips makes a return! I thoroughly enjoyed the first movie - wonder if the second will be as good?
1 December 2011
Dredd Well, after the colossal erm... mess up... they made of the first movie (Stallone as Old Stone Face himself), they can't really do much else to harm the story, but I'll watch it - I'm a Dredd fan ;-) UPDATE: It's been put back a bloody YEAR, *sulk* :-(
16 December 2011
Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows If this is anything like the first one with Robert Downey Junior and co, it should be a vastly entertaining romp through Victorian England!
So, all in all, there's a fair few movies I want to see over the next year... should be interesting watching, if nothing else! Have a fun, enjoyable, and profitable New year, everyone :-D
