Hollywood Movies to look forward to : 2011 - 2012


I am starting this thread to discuess, upcoming Hollywood movies in 2011/2012, that seems worth a mention. I will start with 4, 5 and keep adding more as and when I have informaton, mean time if the movie buffs here find any movie that they want to include/discuess, they are more then welcome ..........

Here we go ....

PS :: Just for the record most of the information is gathered from IMDB. I Just have done the collation part.

1. Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides



PLOT : Captain Jack Sparrow (Depp) crosses paths with a woman from his past (Cruz), and he's not sure if it's love -- or if she's a ruthless con artist who's using him to find the fabled Fountain of Youth. When she forces him aboard the Queen Anne's Revenge, the ship of the formidable pirate Blackbeard (McShane), Jack finds himself on an unexpected adventure in which he doesn't know who to fear more: Blackbeard or the woman from his past.

Director : Rob Marshall

Release Date : 20 May 2011 (USA)

Personal Note : Well jack sparrow is back again, for the fans of Pirates of the Caribbean, what more would they want, with all of the installments of POC, being a blockbuster, hopes from this one are high as well. Eagerly waiting


2. Transformers: Dark of the Moon



PLOT : The Autobots learn of a Cybertronian spacecraft hidden on the Moon, and race against the Decepticons to reach it and learn its secrets, which could turn the tide in the Transformers' final battle.

Director : Michael Bay

Release Date : July 2011 (India) (USA)

Personal Note : There were loves and haters for this movie, and less those who were somewhere in the middle, I for one belong to the former group, just loved the action detail and the cheezy comedy too. Dark Moon is one of the most anticipated movie of 2011.


3. The Mechanic



PLOT : Follows an elite hit man as he teaches his trade to an apprentice who has a connection to one of his previous victims.

Director : Simon West

Release Date : 28 January 2011 (USA)

Personal Note : I love Jason Statham, Mechanic seems to offer nothing new but I am hoping the execution is different. Definitely worth a wait.


4. Battle: Los Angeles



PLOT : A Marine platoon faces off against an alien invasion in Los Angeles

Director : Jonathan Liebesman

Release Date : 18 March 2011 (India)

Personal Note : Well no movie with this theme has touched the success and appreciation since District 9. Battle LA seems to have the right ingredients, let hope that we have a quality alien invasion movie.



5. Cowboys & Aliens



PLOT : A spaceship arrives in Arizona, 1873, to take over the Earth, starting with the Wild West region. A posse of cowboys are all that stand in their way

Director : Jon Favreau (IRON MAN Fame)

Release Date : 19 August 2011 (India)

Personal Note : With Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford as the star cast and Favreau the IRON MAN director, C&A has become one of the most anticipated movie of 2011. The premises is interesting, just need see how the execution is. My personal fav of 2011.

===============

More to Come ........ Soon

Really, bewildering people are still enthused about this franchise. I stopped watching ages ago.

Really don't have any hope with Simon West.

The Favreau film seems to have a really stupid plot and I am not counting on it to deliver. The only decent movie he has made is Iron Man. Don't think Iron Man 2 was particularly good. There were such disasters like Zathura before that.

I am always amazed the kinds of stupid films a lot of people are attracted to. No wonder Tees Maar Khan is making a lot of money.

Re: Hollywood Movies to look forward to : 2011 - 2012

I loved POC, every single installment, just for the pure entertainment factor and Depps performance ...... same goes with Transformers series , yea the comedy was cheezy, punch lines were rugged, but its a total Home Theater movie, you simply just can not neglect the level of action effects this movie has ........

On the serious note, Iron Man 1 was awsome, and I am looking forward to Cowboys and Aliens ....... there is no stupid plot, just stupid presentation/execution/performance ....... Anyway adding one more and this one might just downright be the best movie of 2011 ...

6. 127 Hours



PLOT : 127 Hours is the true story of mountain climber Aron Ralston's remarkable adventure to save himself after a fallen boulder crashes on his arm and traps him in an isolated canyon in Utah. Over the next five days Ralston examines his life and survives the elements to finally discover he has the courage and the wherewithal to extricate himself by any means necessary,

Director : Danny Boyle

Release Date : 7 January 2011

Personal Note : This definitely seems to be one of the top contenders for the best movie of 2011. Plot is based on a true story and by the few premiere reviews, we sure can expect a gripping movie to look forward to...

The first POC was ok. After that, it was not very good imo.

Plot, story and script and essential parts of a movie. You just can't ignore stuff like this.

127 Hours is is 2010 film. I hope it is a good film though. It was pepped up a lot a few months back but has lost a lot of steam in the Oscar race since then. There is even an outside chance it may not be nominated for the best film for the Oscars. It is a film I might watch but I am not 100% decided I will yet. Looks good though.

Re: Hollywood Movies to look forward to : 2011 - 2012

Sam, my issue is I need to like the actors quite a lot for me to enjoy a movie. I have yet to find any new actor I can sync with. Some of my favourite old timers were Matthew McConaughey, Sean Connery, Mark Wahlberg, Colin Farrel, Jet Li, Pierce Brosnan....

Among the young actors I somewhat like Chris Pine and Sam Worthington. It maybe because I like their movies so much. I have yet to find other actors I can sync with.

Cheers

Re: Hollywood Movies to look forward to : 2011 - 2012

127 Hours released in Nov, 5-Nov if I am correct.

Hey Pratters - I requested info on one of the other threads - where did you see Black Swan? It's not released in India yet.

I would add...


7. The Dark Knight Rises
