2011 is looking like a better movie year than 2010 right now from the window looking in. Here is my list for the top 15 movies that I'm excited to see for the new year.
15. Kung Fu Panda 2
The first one was a classic so hopefully Dreamworks won't mess it up with the first of six sequels. Yes that is a true statement.
14. Source Code
My excitement for this stems from the director, Duncan Jones, who two years ago directed a sci-fi classic (Moon)
13. Super 8
J.J. Abrams is a great director and this super secret film should be nothing less from him.
12. Battle: Los Angeles
The trailer looks cool and the buzz is growing for this war drama with aliens.
11. Green Hornet
Can't get super excited about Seth Rogen yet but I can about Christoph Waltz!
10. Cars 2
The first was the weakest reviewed Pixar film and the trailer shows that this one may be a little unordinary but Pixar is a wizard so….
I like Brad Pitt in this baseball movie which should be interesting to see.
8. Water For Elephants
Other than filming in Chattanooga, this film looks interesting and am excited for another Christoph Waltz sighting.
7. Tree of Life
This film looks different and really cool. Should be a really good drama.
6. Sucker Punch
Nothing other than girls and guns. Have no clue what it's about.
5. Winnie the Pooh
I'm calling it here that this wins Best Animated Oscar just from the trailer.
Really excited to see this due to the Depp-Vobranski team-up.
3. Cowboys & Aliens
Jon Favreau is going to give a super fun ride in this one. Harrison Ford and Daniel Craig? YES!
2. Superhero Movies (Thor, Green Lantern, Captain America)
Thor is the one I'm most excited about right now. It looks like a great combo of action with a good script. Green Lantern hasn't really got me excited yet, looks like it's going more for laughs. Captain America looks really good from the pictures so far.
1. Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides
I love the Pirates movies so I'm extremely excited for the latest installment. It looks like an upgrade from number three and I think it will surprise people.
