Definitely Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Super 8 too so ill agree with the above.

Im a bit aprehensive about Captain America but i did want to go see it

Im looking forward to the Lord of the Rings Prequel "The Hobbit"
I heard that Guillermo del Toro was originally going to direct it but is only going to write for it now,a shame as I enjoyed Hellboy 1+2 and Pans Labyrinth and was looking forward to his 'vision' of Middle earth.

I suppose we just have to put up with Peter Jackson again (no bad thing in itself).

If someone mad a slasher movie where the victim was Pierce Moron I think the anticipation level would be unprecedented.

However, I suppose you would like actual films, so in that light, I am looking forward to Cowboys & Aliens.

The film treatment of 'AZINCOURT' by Bernard Cornwell ( Sharpe ) .

This was being talked about on the set of 'Robin Hood' in 2009......and will, I suspect , be timed to be in cinemas for the (counts on fingers) 600th anniversay of the battle itself.


Oh, and the final Potter fillum......just to grit my teeth once more as the only background artiste in the UK to have never worked on the H-P franchise..... :->

I couldn't see a thread for upcoming films (I spent at least fourteen seconds looking) so I thought it might be interesting to see what is getting the average ARRSE film buff excited.

My offering (being an unreconstructed geek) is the new one being shot by Ridley Scott (his first Sci-fi since the golden years of Alien/Bladerunner).

Could Ridley Scott's Prometheus steal the prequel machine's thunder? | Film | guardian.co.uk
Hopefully once that is out of the way, he'll finally start on his magnum opus:

The Forever War - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Film

On October 12, 2008, Ridley Scott confirmed that after a 25 year wait for the rights to become available, he is making a return to science fiction with a film adaptation of the book. He is currently looking for a script writer.[12]

In March 2009, Scott confirmed that the film would be in 3D citing James Cameron's Avatar as an inspiration for doing so. "I'm filming a book by Joe Haldeman called Forever War. I've got a good writer doing it. I've seen some of James Cameron's work, and I've got to go 3D. It's going to be phenomenal."[13][14]

In the summer of 2010, it was later revealed by Scott that the writer, which was revealed to be the State of Play scribe Matthew Michael Carnahan, is currently on the fourth draft of the screenplay that was originally written by Blade Runner scribe David Peoples.[15][16]

A GOOD transfer to film of William Gibson's "Neuromancer" trilogy (ideally as three difference films). As opposed to the abortion that was "Johnny Mnemonic" (Which wasn't just <10% of the film it COULD have been, but pointlessly blurred the backgrounds of Gibson's TWO trilogies.) Back in 1968, Arthur C Clarke and Stanley Kubrick agreed that there had yet to be a "Good SciFi movie" made - and they set out to change that with 2001. Since then... hardly a handful of SciFi movies good enough to be categorized as "Good". ["But what about Star Wars? Or Star Trek?" Child, go and wash your mouth out with arsenic.] Plenty of new SciFi writers, and new SciFi books have emerged since 2001... but almost nome of them made it to the screen. One of the few that did got there as a satire on the original book (Heinlein's "Starship Troopers")

Neuromancer has been rumoured to be in "pre-production" almost since the book was first published.

That sounds tin-foil-hat-tastic!

I suppose at least we wont be subjected to Jason Statham trying to do his yank accent again.
To be honest I'm not sure which I'm looking forward to the most: the film itself (which, I do admit, I'm hoping proves to be the comedy event of the year), or the inevitable lengthy thread detailing how the weaponry/uniforms/vehicles/locations/dialogue/soundtrack/empty cases/moustaches/sideys etc somehow aren't quite historically, er, accurate....

`War Horse` adapted from the book, and following on from it`s success on the stage. It`s being filmed by Spielberg and I can only hope he does justice to what was an excellent book.

due for release January 2012 I believe.

As long as it has SLR's in it i'm sure it will do a roaring trade with most ARRSErs.

So it'll be an Amercian horse in the American Army in WW1 then and nothing like the book !

Perhaps Mel Gibson will play Levy Goldberg the horse botherer !

That, my friend, is exactly what I was/am afraid of!
