Quentin Tarantino’s new film about a former slave (Jamie Foxx) who teams up with a German bounty hunter (Christoph Waltz) to free his wife from a Mississippi plantation owner (Leonardo DiCaprio). Another revenge theme for Tarantino, but I am pleased with the casting.
Daniel Craig took over as James Bond and brought the character to a whole new level. Skyfall will be the third film since Craig has been in the role, and there’s no reason to think there’s going to be a drop off of excitement in the series. The best piece of info has to be that the Bond baddie will be played by Javier Bardem.
Ridley Scott returns to the sci-fi/action/horror genre after over 30 years away from it (Alien)! Prometheus follows a team of space explorers who are on a mission to save the future of mankind. The cast includes Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Guy Pearce and Noomi Rapace.
2. The Dark Knight Rises
As the follow-up to one of the highest critically-acclaimed movies of all time, The Dark Knight Rises concludes the story of Batman as told by Christopher Nolan. There are large shoes to fill after Heath Ledger’s mesmerizing performance as the Joker in The Dark Knight, but they managed to find a man big enough to fill any shoes. That man is Tom Hardy, and he will be playing the role of Bane. Anne Hathaway takes on Catwoman as the other villain of the film. I expect this to be an explosive and riveting conclusion to the Dark Knight trilogy.

Iron Man (Robert Downy Jr)! Captain America (Chris Evans)! Thor (Chris Hemsworth)! The Hulk(Mark Ruffalo)! Black Widow (Scarlett Johannson)! Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner)! Nick Fury (Samuel L Jackson)! Joss Whedon! Does anything else matter?
