Not super-thrilled about such a quick reboot, however the Spider-Man franchise definitely needed a change after the abysmal third installment. Brit Andrew Garfield is your new Spider-Man, rising star Emma Stone is the love interest and Rhys Ifans is The Lizard.
The lone survivor (Sandra Bullock) of a space mission to repair the Hubble telescope struggles to find a way to return home. Gravity co-stars George Clooney and is directed by Alfonso Cuaròn (Children of Men, Y Tu Mamá También). My intrigue is solely built on knowing two quality actors and a director whose style is simply beautiful.
18. Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter
Based on a novel with the same name, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is an alternate-history story in which Lincoln has a secret life as a vampire hunter. I really like the idea of this, I should probably check out the book.
17. The Cabin in the Woods
Co-written and produced by Joss Whedon (Firefly, The Avengers), The Cabin in the Woods is an upcoming “teenagers in the woods” horror film. Unlike most films in this genre, there appears to be people watching the teens and controlling what happens from some sort of control room. The film stars Chris Hemsworth (Thor) and Richard Jenkins.
Haywire is an upcoming action film directed by Steven Soderbergh (Contagion, Oceans trilogy) and stars Gina Carano (“female face of MMA”) as a freelance cover operative who is betrayed by her employer. The trailer is action-packed and makes this look like a fun, pure action film. Haywire co-stars Michael Fassbender, Ewan McGregor, Michael Douglas, Channing Tatum, Antonio Banderas and Bill Paxton.
