Very interested to see Oz and Superman. Nothing on that list interests me more than the next Hobbit movie though. Or Star Wars VII for that matter, even though it's a couple years off yet.

Ganster Squad looks great to me. Typical movie for me,,thunder and lightening, no lessons taught..

I'm just ready for new stuff. Seems all we've seen in the last few years is redos and sequals.

That Man of Steel movie has ALOT riding on it. DC will be screwed if that flops critically or even commercially. It needs to be a big time to make a Justice League movie even possible.

I love Iron Man's charectar in the comics, not so much in the movies. I'll see it though.

MAN OH MAN I wish Aronofsky hadn't pulled out of that Wolverine flick. He'd be the best director to ever even dable in the comic genre, IMO (yes, I like Aronofsky over Nolan).

Pretty much all of the above. Man of Steel and the new Star Trek are probably my top 2.

I'll tell you one movie preview that looked horrible though: Hansel & Gretel Witch Hunters. Holy crap that looks dumb.

Pretty much all the movies on that list I really want to see, but I just saw the trailer for World War Z and right now that's the one I'm most excited about.

The Great Gatsby, love F Scott Fitzgerald and the trailer looks like they "get" it.

Interested to see Man of Steel, I've never been a Superman guy though, but I'm curious what they are going to do with it.

Interested in the second Hunger Games too.

Gangster Squad looks badass.

I hope so. Now that people are use to the comic book world of characters, they expect flaws. Superman doesn't really have a flaw (except for the obvious), so we'll see how this is done. Let's just hope Nolan doesn't turn a 1.5 hour movie into a 2.5 hour movie, he's keen to doing that.

He's supposed to be taking a realistic approach to the film like the barman trilogy. How would the world react if there was a being with that much power walking among us. On that basis alone I'm very excited to see it. Casting in the film is top notch as well.

That's one of the things that I dislike about the trailers we've seen. It's basically "Batman Begins", but with Clark Kent. Clark Kent didn't have the screwed up events in his early childhood that Bruce Wayne had (which made Bruce to become Batman). Clark Kent had a great upbringing, and didn't have the same emotional torment growing up. Looks like Nolan is going that route though.

I want to see Catching Fire. The book dragged to me. The third one has the chance to be epic if they do it as well as the book was written. Supposedly they are making 3 movies out of the last two books, which is a good idea. Catching Fire will be no Empire Strikes Back, but the first movie of the last book has a chance to be. It is a great story. Catching Fire is basically just a filler love story, but I think they'll try to emphasize more of the action and what builds to a fantastic crescendo.

I don't think the studio folks thought Hunger Games was going to do well so they didn't invest as much into it as it needed to get the full picture of what was happening. It seems trimmed down some. But I think the next 3 will get the right treatment and they'll do really big business.

The only other movie I'm looking forward to a great deal is "Ender's Game", but who knows when that will actually see the light of day. Apparently Harrison Ford is in it. I saw one picture of it, and it looks right... just how I pictured it each time I read it. It has the potential if they do it right to be a life changing movie for a lot of people. I taught all of Orson Scott Card's nieces and nephews and I am good friends with his brother who has collaborated with him on many things, and it was interesting to get feedback from the family about the books. His brother actually won't even let his kids read them. I remember a big broo-ha-ha we had over it, because he felt it was inappropriate for his children, but I didn't. We all ended up fine in the end, but it was interesting to hear his take. My son looks just like Ender on the cover of one printing, so it was cool playing it out in my head with my son playing Ender. He's that kind of a kid too. An absolute genius. The undertones and back story of Ender's siblings are what really make it incredible (especially when you consider how long ago it was written, and how much of what he has discussed is really happening). Hopefully movie 2 is Ender's Shadow which was written well after it, and is out of sequence, but seeing them make those two movies which are the same story from 2 points of view would be pretty amazing if a producer and studio were willing to take that risk. I would love it and buy 100 copies of the movies to hand out to strangers just to get the story out there.

Only ones that really grab me are Ender's Game, The Hobbit Part Two, and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. I'm interested in seeing The Great Gatsby, but probably not in the theater. I'm mildly interested in some of the others, but the previews of most I've seen, especially the science fiction, have far too many overdone tropes and generic plots.

Well.... they claim they are. It's been in and out of development for so long that you never know for sure. At one point I was told that Orson Scott Card felt they couldn't make it properly because it would take too long and it was really about the relationships. Then there was hope they could do it in an animated (like Pixar style, but not all cartoony). Now they've gotten to the point where they can make the movies and get them done quickly enough to make it work because the technology has caught up with a lot of what they'd have to do to tell the WHOLE story. Here's a pic of Harrison Ford as Graff when the kids first get to the training station in space and it looks legit, so we shall see.....

Anyway, my most anticipated movie is the next Hobbit. Wildcard pick for best movie: The Monument's Men with Daniel Craig, Matt Damon, Cate Blanchett, George Clooney, Bill Murray, and John Goodman. Color me intrigued.

Forgot about Ender's game. I've read the book maybe 10 times in my lifetime plus the rest of the series once (At least I think. They kept adding books. Last one I read was Ender's shadow.) So glad Harrison Ford is in this. I hope these kid actors has the skills to pull this off.

How did you like Ender's Shadow? I loved that book. It made me cry. I think it would be amazing to film Ender's Game and Ender's Shadow back to back and see the story from the Ender POV and then immediately follow it up from the Bean POV, and then if they wanted to, they could move forward with Ender's story. I think it all makes much more sense when you get the Bean version. It should have been the second book, and my understanding is Card realized that later, and was going to farm out the alternate POV books to a series of authors. As they talked about it though, he took Ender's Shadow back, because he felt only he could really paint the complete Bean picture that he was hoping to paint, and he did it amazingly well. What an amazing book. For anybody who has ever served in the military, or struggled, or just felt out of place, or pretty much had any sort of difficulty in life then I can't recommend Ender's Game enough. I hope it focuses on the relationships and not on a bunch of CGI business. This book is about human interaction and how people function together or are unable to function and so on. It's a deep story.

I thought Ender's Shadow was the best book of the series - even better than Ender's Game. Absolutely loved it. And that would be a stellar idea. They'll never do it, but it would be awesome.

Forgot about Ender's game. I've read the book maybe 10 times in my lifetime plus the rest of the series once (At least I think. They kept adding books. Last one I read was Ender's shadow.) So glad Harrison Ford is in this. I hope these kid actors has the skills to pull this off.


How did you like Ender's Shadow? I loved that book. It made me cry. I think it would be amazing to film Ender's Game and Ender's Shadow back to back and see the story from the Ender POV and then immediately follow it up from the Bean POV, and then if they wanted to, they could move forward with Ender's story. I think it all makes much more sense when you get the Bean version. It should have been the second book, and my understanding is Card realized that later, and was going to farm out the alternate POV books to a series of authors. As they talked about it though, he took Ender's Shadow back, because he felt only he could really paint the complete Bean picture that he was hoping to paint, and he did it amazingly well. What an amazing book. For anybody who has ever served in the military, or struggled, or just felt out of place, or pretty much had any sort of difficulty in life then I can't recommend Ender's Game enough. I hope it focuses on the relationships and not on a bunch of CGI business. This book is about human interaction and how people function together or are unable to function and so on. It's a deep story.

I'm glad we're in agreement. I think part of it was that Card had just improved as a writer between Ender's Game and Ender's Shadow, but part of it was that his ability to write it from a different "brain" made it all the more amazing. Plus I just liked Bean's back story a bit more. Ender's back story was very important in the scheme of the whole universe Card created, but Bean's back story was more important in telling why everything in that particular situation happened the way it did and how much different things were when seen from an alternate POV. Ender thought he knew everything..... but well, I'll leave it there and hope they make it properly.

Shark, I loved the book, too. It was the first parallel book I had read at the time, so i wasnt sure how it would add to the orginal, but Card really did something special with it. I agree that it should have been the second book, too, which sort of ties in with my small complaint with it all. I had re-read Enders Game so many times, that after reading Enders Shadow, I felt duped. Bean deserved so much more attention to the original, yet it took almost 15 years for him to get his due.

I would love back-to-back POV movies, but if Hollywood doesn't see it is financially wise, for whatever reason, I hope they go in more depth with Bean's character. I mean, please, don't downplay Beans brilliance and importance just because its called "Enders" Game.
