I'm a little behind! Sorrryyy. Anyway, here's ten movies I am highly, highly anticipating this year...
The Kids are All Right
It just looks great. Funny, touching...etc. Plus, Annette and Julianne (<33333).>
I think everyone's anticipating this. Besides the fact that I can't wait to see what Christopher Nolan does next, the trailer looks amazing and that cast is just to die for. Especially...Marion, Ellen and JGL...yessss.
Tales From Earthsea
While doing research for this post, I discovered that this film, directed by Hayao Miyazaki's son Goro, is being released in the US this year. Um, I will be seeing this movie. I'm actually psyched right now, I had no idea!
Scott Pilgrim VS The World
I think anyone who saw the trailer should be anticipating this. Looks like a lot of fun, I like Michael Cera, and Anna Kendrick is in it!!! :D
You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger
I heard the reception was lukewarm at Cannes, but I still want to see it. Mainly for the cast (Naomi Watts...and um...haha). Plus, I like Woody Allen. His new stuff is hit or miss, but hopefully this will be good. I need one romantic type movie on this list right?
I'm anticipating this one again on trailers and cast. But oh, if you have seen the cast or trailers, you know why. Emma Stone is lovely, and she looks like she'll be a lot of fun in this. Plus, Patricia Clarkson and Amanda Bynes will almost always be friends of mine.
It's a MUSICAL people! I love musicals, especially ones made especially for the screen. So, obviously I'm anticipating this. It's probably not going to be very good, I mean, it doesn't scream prestige but still. I'm very excited about it.
I've sort of been anticipating this for like, two years. Basically ever since I saw Triplets of Belleville! And people in the blogosphere who saw it in Berlin say it's amazing. I cannot wait...if only Benoit Charest was doing the score.
All Good Things
This is really under-wraps, I've heard barely a thing about it. But if it's good, it's going to be really good. I can't wait to see Ryan Gosling and Kirsten Dunst being intense (see also, "I can't wait to see Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams being intense"). And, Kristen Wiig doing drama? Me = intrigued to the utmost.
Natalie Portman intrigues me. To be honest, I've only seen her in Star Wars, Paris Je t'aime, and this, but for some reason...I feel like I want to follow her career. But most of the reason I want to see this is because...um, rival ballet dancers? That just sounds AMAZING. Get me to the theater now, please!
So there you go! I know most of you have already made your lists...but...humor me and tell me what movies you're anticipating and your reactions to my list down below. ;)
