    Looking at most of that line-up, the "suits" better stop praying and start thinking more along the lines of sacrificing a goat or something.

    Looks like the glut of superhero movies continues.


    I wonder if 2011 will be the year 3D takes off or if it gets abandoned as an overpriced extra.

    I had no idea Puss-n-Boots was getting his own movie. Wonder if he can really carry his own movie (love the character, though).

    Some interesting films on there. The only one I am actively passionate about is The Tree of Life in May, but there are others I am interested in. I appreciate the roundup, Terry, as always. I am surprised folks believe that Green Lantern will outgross Cars 2.

    There are those that believe "Green Lantern" will be this year's "Iron Man" in terms of how successful it is. Hence the predictions that it'll out earn "Cars 2". Personally, I wouldn't be at all surprised if "Kung Fu Panda 2" ends up being the biggest hit of the summer.


    The studios are hoping to sell more than 100 million more theater admissions than what were sold in 2010. I do expect this year's crop of new films to pull in stronger numbers than that of '10, but 100 million more admissions better? I just don't know.

    I think the final Harry Potter movie will take that.

    I can't believe there's a "Wimpy Kid" sequel already. Wasn't the first a disappointment at the box office?




    IMO, I'd expect any of these to be the big December film before "Tintin." Is "Tintin" even a viable character in the US? The only reason I even know of the character is my high school library had some of the books. I've never seen another Tintin item outside that library.


    Though I'm currently reading "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo," and I don't really understand the popularity of that property, either. The first 200 pages has been pretty boring stuff.

    Green Hornet looks horrible. How well did Daredevil do? I would put it in that category.



    Mars Needs Moms is maybe one of the most offensive trailers I have ever seen.. I wouldn't have my kid anywhere near that horrible crap. I saw the trailer and gasped at how bad it was.


    Is "Arthur" a remake of the Dudley Moore vehicle or a childrens Ardvaark? I'm hoping for the latter.. because if it's the former... oh lord.


    There are very few films in this list that I care about at all..

    "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" made $64 million domestically, while costing only $15 million to produce. I'm not surprised at all that Fox greenlit a sequel.


    The excitement for 'Tintin' (by studio suits) is largely due to both Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson being involved.

    "Daredevil" made $102.5 million back in '03, Sony would love for this kind of haul for "The Green Hornet".


    "Arthur" is in fact a remake to the 1981 Dudley Moore film.

    The 'Pirates', 'Potter', and 'Sherlock Holmes' sequels interest me, as do impending new films from Scorcese, Malick, and Spielberg (two from him in one week!). Hopefully 'Cowboys and Aliens' will at least be fun, and Fincher will manage something interesting with 'Dragon Tattoo' that I didn't already see in the Swedish version. Following the laziness of 'Iron Man 2', I'm less enthused about charting the progress of Marvel's superhero mega-franchise, although 'Captain America' could be one to see since it's supposed to be a standalone period piece. 'Green Lantern' also looked interesting...until I saw the trailer. As for most everything else...yikes.

    I'm still rather confused how PIRANHA is getting a sequel so fast when the first film really didn't do that great at the box office. There have been some horror flicks the past three years that made a lot of money at the box office yet they can't get a sequel going yet this thing does. If this thing turns out to be the biggest money maker then those studio guys might have something to worry about.

    I'm interested to see how SCREAM 4 plays out.

    My predictions: Harry Potter 7 part 2 tops out at $300M. Green Hornet tops out at $45M. Biggest movie of the summer: Transformers 3.


    Also, Sucker Punch now 2D only (which is great news): http://movies.ign.com/articles/114/1142318p1.html

    I am sort of looking forward to "TinTin". I'm curious if Spielberg and Jackson manage to pull off Herge's clear line style in a CGI motion capture film. I also consider that Herge's TinTin comics were written to appeal to a wider audience than just children. As an adult, I believe that I could still read a Herge' comic and not feel that my intelligence was insulted. I kind of consider Herge' to be the European equivalent to Carl Barks. Both artists made extensive use of National Geographic when it came to creating exotic locations for the adventures of their respective characters.

    fascinating that both Tintin and WarHorse release one week apart. has a directer ever had two movies released in consecutive weeks before (at least in the modern era?)

    I don't know, but I just can't see it staying that way. This has to lead to some effect of each film cannibalizing each others box office to some degree, no?

    ^ That's why I'd be surprised if one of the release dates doesn't change in the next 11 months.

    I can't believe I haven't seen a new movie since before the new year. Nothing new worth seeing. I've just about seen all the Oscar worthy movies. I think the only movie I'm looking forward to watching this month is The Rite. The Green Hornet? I'd have to be held at gunpoint to watch that load of crap. BTW, what's the tracking for it? Anyone even remotely interested in it? I can't believe there's even midnight screenings for it.

    I think every movie gets a midnight screening now. I know just about everyone does around here.


    I'm slightly interested in THE RITE and HALL PASS. I'll probably watch THE MECHANIC just to see how it compared to the Bronson version.

    Everything else is pretty much 2010 films that haven't arrived here yet (RABBIT HOLE, BLUE VALENTINE).
