Movies 2011

There are so many films coming out that I really want to see this year (and some in 2012 as well), anyone who knows me well knows that I love movies. I have an extensive DVD collection, I go to movie conventions/signing events, I collect movie/tv memorabilia… etc.

Note:- This post will be rather long and rather image heavy

Here are some of the movies I’m looking forward to seeing (and there UK release dates):

Paul
Paul is Simon Pegg and Nick Frost’s new film, I’m a big fan of their movies – Two British comic-book geeks travel across the U.S. and encounter an alien, rumour has it one of the UK conventions I attend is mentioned in the film.
Release date: 14th February 2011

Scream 4
“Ten years have passed, and Sidney Prescott, who has put herself back together thanks in part to her writing, is visited by the Ghostface Killer”. I was 9 or 10 when the first film came out and saw it with a few of my friends, it was rated 18. At that age I really liked the film and it’s sequel (didn’t really like Scream 3 though). I want to see this film out of curiosity more than anything else.
Release date: April 15th 2001

Thor
The next in the Marvel movie franchise – Main reason for wanting to see this is so I understand The Avengers and I’ve really enjoyed the rest of the Marvel Avengers’ story lines (Iron Man, Hulk, etc). “The powerful but arrogant warrior Thor is cast out of the fantastic realm of Asgard and sent to live amongst humans on Earth, where he soon becomes one of their finest defenders.”
Release date: 29th April 2011

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides
The next instalment in the franchise minus Keira and Orlando “Jack Sparrow and Barbossa embark on a quest to find the elusive fountain of youth, only to discover that Blackbeard and his daughter are after it too.” I’m a huge fan of these movies and love the way Johnny Depp plays Jack Sparrow, bit disappointed there’ll be no Will Turner though – the banter between the two characters is a plus in these films. Very happy to have Barbossa back again though.
Release date: 18th May 2011

X-Men: First Class
I’ve been looking to this movie since the rumour stage, I’m interested in the two characters of Magneto and Professor X and am looking forward hearing about their back story.
Release date: 2nd June 2011

Transformers: Dark of the Moon
Mark Ryan was the first person to tell me this film was to be made when I met him in 2009, been anticipating it since then. I’m just hoping it’ll live up to my expectations of it…
Release date: 1st July 2011

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2
Yay! The last Harry Potter film! That is all I really have to say, very excited to see this one! I’ll laugh, I’ll no doubt 🙁 Hoping it’ll live up to the book.
Release date: 15th July 2011

Cars 2
😀 One of my favourite Pixar films is getting a sequel? *squee* I must see it! I loved the first one – oddly I was no where near the oldest person in the cinema going to see it >.< That's what I love about Disney films they appeal to all ages. Release date: 22nd July 2011 Captain America: The First Avenger
“After being deemed unfit for military service, Steve Rogers volunteers for a top secret research project that turns him into Captain America, a superhero dedicated to defending America’s ideals. ” Joss Whedon is co-writing this one, as well as The Avengers – that’s one reason I’ll see it. I’m a big Whedon fan. I’ll also being see it as a Marvel movies fan. Not sure what to expect from it…
Release date: 29th July 2011

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1
I’m a Twilight fan, both the books and the movies. I don’t like Kristen Stewart as Bella. I’m looking forward to Breaking Dawn, I’m just hoping is does the book justice, if you’ve read you’ll know that it has a lot of content (some of it more adult) and that it is a lot longer than the other three books in the series – I’m just hoping they keep the crucial parts.
Release date: 18th November 2011

Not too many then? 😛

Other notable movies in 2011 I’d be interested in seeing (DVD maybe?): Winnie the Pooh, The Avengers, Abduction, Final Destination 5.

What about 2012?
There are already loads of films with release dates that are meant to be in 2012, e.g. Underworld 4: A New Dawn, The Dark Knight Rises, Men in Black III.

What films are you looking forward to?
