  1. book marked =) so that i can look at em later lol

  2. I can hear my wallet cussing me out for this year and next already…

  3. Nothing I want to see until March 4 with BATTLE: LOS ANGELES.

    • What about AFTER March 4?

      • There’s plenty of films. There’s just nothing that I would pay to see until then.

    • For me, between now and March 4:

      The Mechanic
      Sanctum
      Unknown

      Vic

  4. you forgot Restless starring Mia Wasikowska for January.

  5. The Hunger Games? There’s no cast or date yet, but it’s supposed to release is late of this year.

    • i doubt the hunger games will release this year! they are only in pre production. though i really wanna see that movie! im currently reading the book and its amazing!

      • I just read the first Hunger Games novel and I really enjoyed it as well. I know the director is planning for a PG-13 but I don’t really know how he’s going to pull that off and get across what was in the book.

        Vic

  6. Looking forward to Kill the Irishman. I’m big fan of Vincent D’Onofrio.
    The music kind of sucks though. Not really suited for a 70′s era film.
    Also excited for Diary of a Wimpy Kid 2, something fun to watch with the kids.

  7. Colombiana: Zoe Saldana half naked with a gun… I’M THERE!!!

  8. Great article. Somewhere in the back of my mind I was hoping you guys would do something like this, and bam! Apollo 18 confused me… horror/thriller or whatever with a mission that was canceled? I’m assuming the story will revolve around a mission gone wrong and was canceled as a cover-up. Annnd february is (mostly) looking like a month to skip altogether. Gnomeo and Juliet? pshhh.

  9. Hmm.. 3 Marvels this year. Why am I disappointed. Oh yeah! No Dr. Strange. That boat sank when they decided to bring the Avengers forward.

  10. wait does this mean they’re remaking jaws… nnnnnnoooooooooooooooooooooo !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  11. Woo!

    I didnt know you guys made an article stating all the movies coming out in the whole year!!!! I LOVE IT! :D

  12. Lil Monster, I don’t really see much worth going to the theater to see until May. Then I will have to take out a loan just to get me through the Summer. I have read all the articles on a lot of the movies for this Summer but until this article, I didn’t realize just how many movies were coming out this year that I want to go see. I can’t wait for May.

    Then the rest of this article just cracked me up. I can’t believe how many stupid movies they are doing this year. Like the Nick Cage goes Ghost Rider in a car. Another Big Momma movie? That one trick pony has been absolutely beat to death. Piranha 3DD? That has to win the title for dumbest movie title of the year. Jack and Jill sounds like something pitched to the movie execs on South Park by Cartman in the Awesome-O Episode. With ideas like this, even the worst of the good movies can’t be all bad.

  13. I am STOKED for The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. David Fincher is one of my all time favorite directors, the perfect choice to direct this movie, and Trent Reznor makes the exact kind of dark but sexy music that a story like this requires. Not to mention the cast is killer and if you’ve read the book, you know the plot line is intriguing. Should be a very entertaining film.

  14. the most awesome/excellent/groovy movies of 2011.
    drive angry,hall pass,Rango,battle L.A., Paul,sucker punch,scream 4,fast5, Thor, Winnie the pooh,harry potter part2,transformers 3,rise of the apes,green lantern,super 8,x-men first class,hangover 2,pirates 4,kung fu panda 2,captain america,cowboys and aliens, Conan,M:I:4,sherlock Holmes 2.

    maybe movies of 2011.
    spy kids 4,final destination 5,puss in boots,happy feet 2

    worst movies of 2011.
    big mamas house 3,paranormal activity 3,twilight 4,alvin and the chipmunks 3, and the Justin qweefer movie.

    somebody forgot to add Harold and Kumar 3 to the 2011 list, but i’m looking forward to that movie.
    this is going to be the best movie year ever.

    • ha justin queffer so funny

  15. I love your Harry Potter description XD

  16. Thanks Kofi, really appreciate the synopsis of this years movies. It’s better than anything Total Film or Premiere will do.
    Having perused what’s on offer I am appalled at the sheer volume of crap that Hollywood continues to churn out.
    Despite that there are a number of films that stand out for me and a few more that command my attention.

    As a Sci-Fi/Action and Horror fan the stand-outs for me are:-

    Limitless – (Bradley is always watchable…stood out in “My Little Eye”)

    Fright Night – (David Tennant’s first major Hollywood gig!!)

    Unknown – (Liam does his angry man thing a la “Taken”)

    The Eagle – (Romans versus Picts!!)

    Sanctum – (Claustrophobia in 3D!!)

    The Mechanic – (You’ll believe a short, balding, squat Laandinahh can kick ass…again!!)

    Apollo 18 – (I don’t know what this is about…but I’m very curious)

    Rise Of The Apes – (Looks very promising and better than the last effort)

    Dragon Tattoo – (Rooney Mara!! She only had a small role in TSN but my god did she shine. Could do for her what Dragon did for Rapace)

    Others I like:-

    The Thing (It’s not a remake…it’s a prequel)
    Conan
    Sucker Punch
    Barney’s Version
    Drive Angry
    X-Men First Class
    Priest
    Super 8
    Real Steel
    Contagion

    Would like to watch “Vanishing On 7th Street”…but it has John Leguizamo in it. Sorry, but I have an irrational dislike of the man.

    Finally, I reckon this could be a stand out year for Ryan Gosling and Alex Pettyfer. Gosling as a credible A list actor with serious acting chops and Pettyfer as the goto guy for drawing in the (mainly female) teen audience bucks with vapid, turgid, generic and predictable rubbish that somehow garners millions of dollars.
    It should also prove (hopefully) that Justin Timberlake should stick to singing disposable pop ditties and that Rooney Mara should do a lesbian porn film with Sacha Gray…but only because i’m selfish you see!

  17. “now” sounds good. Kinda like logans run? And that soderberg movie contagion sounds like outbreak. I think Dustin Hoffman was in it.

  18. Was MI 4 “GHOST PROTOCOL” always pegged for a Christmas time release? I would have thought it would be planned for Summer like the first 3; at least I believe all 3 were released during the Summer.

    Not that I’m unhappy since here lately the holidays seem to see to few good films it worries me that perhaps they (the studios) felt the film could not hold up against Summer time competition.

  19. Omg The Lincoln Lawyer looks so good! I love Ryan Phillippe. Actually there are a lot of great actors in it, I’m stoked to see it! The facebook page has some more pics and info and stuff – http://www.facebook.com/thelincolnlawyermovie

  20. Gnomeo & Juliet looks like a failure, even from Kelly Asbury. I can’t wait for March. That’s when all the good movies start. Go Team Skywalker!

  21. a lot of good movies and A LOTTTTTTT of BAD movies

  22. any news on terminator 5? is that due out in 2011 or 2012 or did they scrap it? any news would be appreciated

  23. Does Redford’s Conspiracy show Young Surrat escaped to the Vatigan with protection from the Catholic Church through Montreal, Ireland, and Rome?

  24. paranormal activity 3………………??
