A lot of bloggers are posting there lists of anticipated movies now that the new year is over, so i thought i might as well join in. While there are a couple of blockbusters that have my interest(The Dark Knight Rises, Avengers, Skyfall, and the Hobbit are the main ones) i’ve decided to focus on the smaller/lesser known projects i am looking forward to(Most of them because of a actor or actress) and hopefully get someone else excited for them ;)
Rosaline-A period comedy focusing on Rosaline from Romeo & Juliet, the main reason i am looking forward to this is because of DWC favorite Deborah Ann Woll, which should surprise absolutely no one :P. I recently checked out 500 Days of Summer since this is has the same director and writers, and seeing how good that movie was makes me even more excited for this one. Unfortunately this one won’t come out till 2013 :(
Apparently Deborah is no longer the lead actress for this one. Because of that, i no longer care about this one
“The Healer” tells the story of teenage twins Nick and Michelle who embark on a camping trip with their father. A family outing to repair old emotional wounds turns into a perilous adventure as they become lost in a haunted forest from which there seems no escape
The reason this is on my radar is because it has Isabelle Furhman who amazed me in Orphan and Houndog and Joel Courtney who i liked in Super 8(Although Isabelle is the bigger draw for me actor-wise at this point). It also happens to be a supernatural thriller, and most of you already know i love a good supernatural tale. The writer/director of this one is a bit of a gamble, but i really want this one to be good.
A mother and daughter move to a new town and find themselves living next door to a house where a young girl murdered her parents. When the daughter befriends the surviving son, she learns the story is far from over.
This one is also on my radar because of the two leads, Max Thieriot and Jennifer Lawrence. Plus the premise sounds like it could be interesting.
A look at the mysterious relationship between Victorian art critic John Ruskin and his teenage bride Effie Gray.
This one i am mainly looking forward because Dakota happens to be playing the lead character.
A girl dying of leukemia compiles a list of things she’d like to do before passing away. Topping the list is her desire to lose her virginity.
This i am also anticipating because of Dakota(It seems 2012 may be her big year)
The Cabin in the Woods- I’m kind of a Whedon, so of course this is on my radar. I am kind of annoyed that Amy Acker doesn’t appear in the trailer at all, and i was kind of anticipating seeing her on the big screen finally. But even with that gripe, the trailer still looks awesome
And lastly Angelina Jolie’s upcoming project with Luc besson, mainly because it is one of her few upcoming projects that is not a biopic. Besson i fee a bit iffy about, as his last movie was colombiana which wasn’t all that good. But He has made some great stuff also, so hopefully he gets his groove back for this one. There isn’t anything known about the plot at this point, but from what i’ve read it is supposed to be in the spirit The Fifth Element and Leon.
