Movie horizon of 2007
After the somewhat disappointing movie year of 2006, what do we see at the horizon?
Clearly the most anticipated film of next year. Frank Miller is back on the screen and the trailers are absolutely gorgeous.
- Hot Fuzz
The team from excellent zombie movie Shaun of the dead is back with some kind of action/comedy. Looks promising from the trailer.
A set of two horror movies by Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez. Could be fun.
Hopefully a decent sci-fi flick, but most likely a disappointment.
Anything written by Neil Gaiman cannot possibly be bad.
- 3:10 to Yuma
This seems to be some sort of western with Christian Bale and Russell Crowe.
- Shoot ‘Em Up
The title says it all. Could be a lot of brainless fun.
- Plane dead
After the surprisingly awaited Snakes on a plane, here comes zombies on a plane. Be still my beating heart.
Maybe they will manage to break the curse placed by Christopher Lambert upon any project named Beowulf.
- Smokin’ Aces
Even though it features Ben Affleck, I feel this Vegas mob flick has potential. Or it could simply be the early promo pics of Alicia Keys…
I hope it’s better than the He-Man film with Dolph Lundgren…
- The Simpsons Movie
Well, gonna see it anyway.
There also seems to be a lot of sequels coming this way:
Hopefully just as entertaining as it’s predecessor Nightwatch.
- The Bourne Ultimatum
This could go on forever, but the two predecessors were actually quite good.
- Spider-Man 3
This time they follow the X-Men 3 route and try to squeeze in as many things as possible. Sandman, Venom, Gwen, the symbiot and yet another goblin. They need at least seven hours to get it all.
- Pirates of The Caribbean: At World’s End
Most likely solid entertainment for the bucks.
- Harry Potter and the order of the Phoenix
Voldemort and the children of Hogwarts are at it again.
- Rocky Balboa
That’s right. Sly will do one more of them before the nursing care. Let me hear “Adrian” once more.
- Ocean’s Thirteen
Come on. The second film wasn’t even good.
- Fantastic Four and the Silver Surfer
I really want to see how they will pull this one off without making the audience laugh to death. An intergalactic surfer in gray tights and a guy who eats planets?
- Die Hard: Live Free Or Die Hard
Forgive me for not leaping with joy. When will poor John McClane be allowed for retirement?
- Resident Evil 3
Oooh how surprising, considering the ending of number 2.
- Evan Almighty
This is sort of a sequel to Bruce Almighty, but unfortunately without Jim Carrey.
- Shrek the Third
Will be just as the prequels – fun and harmless.
- Bloodrayne 2
Last but not least, Uwe Boll will return with a sequel to one of the worst movies in history. Kristanna Loken declined to reprise her role as Rayne and I’m not surprised to see Michael Madsen skip it either.
There are also some disturbing rumors of Brian De Palma making a prequel to his masterpiece The Untouchables. I fear nothing good can come of this. Who would you cast as a young Jimmy Malone?
And for the distant 2008, we’re all looking forward to the remake of The A-Team. Except for Mr T, the cast is just unbelievable with Fabio as “Beautiful Thug” and Richard Kiel as “Thug”. Could we already have found the worst movie of 2008?
