    The one I'm most looking forward to is Sucker Punch.

    It looks like classic Zack Snyder action set in a host of ridiculous contexts, acted out by a sexy but strong cast, epic visual effects and it all looks set to be rolled into one giant mindf***.

    There's not that much more I could want in a film of this nature tbh!

    Spy Kids 4 as well is supposedly coming out next year

    Yogi Bear the animated movie... (oh my go-)

    The Final Destination (Final Destination 5, August 2011) - I find it amusing they're making sequel after sequel called the final destination, guess it's never going to actually end then? But the plot seems fairly interesting, it's also cool that they're bringing some old characters from previous films (I think it's like 1 or 2 minor characters, as fans of the films' would happily point out that all the main characters die by the end of the films anyway haha)

    Want to bring up Pirates of the Carribbean on stranger tides - I'm sure it'll be another hit, with good acting, a decent story and a good combination of humour, drama etc like the previous 3 films but reading the synopsis - it's still a bit meh, the story doesn't seem as interesting or necessary, it seems pretty irrelevant in the whole timeline of POTC but whatever, we'll see how it turns out

    You're joking right? The story of the third film was awful, it existed solely to set up a fourth film.

    I wish I was joking, pointless and unecessary sequels from huge franchises, like Pirates of the carribbean always gross at least $150,000,000 domestically

    Most filmgoers probably won't be checking the internet for the plot or the story, most probably don't even know there's a Pirates of the Carribbean 4 coming out next year, they'll hear about a new installment coming out with Cap'n Jack reprising his role and go to see it en masse

    It's just such a huge franchise and even if it gets' slated by reviews, it's going to gross highly. Its almost inevitable

    Oh no, I'm positive it will make more money than the GDP of most middle-sized countries... the bit you shocked me was where you said they all had "decent stories". The third one is garbage.

    Take me home tonight - out March 4th 2011, starring Topher Grace! Yes, how awesome, I've thought about his absence in big budget films recently and thought it was a shame, as well as Anna Farris and Michelle Trachtenberg so a pretty solid cast to be fair

    Looks really funny and Tophers' dead pan delivery and comedic acting should make I work, completely missed this film though. 2011 really has some killer films coming out

    Oh and a great looking film. The Eagle

    http://www.imdb.com/video/imdb/vi54565145/ - Set during the ancient Roman empire, in Britain about the legendary 3rd legion of Rome that supposedly dissapeared or got defeated in Scotland on an mission there. starring Channing Tatum and Jamie Bell (the other Jumper guy in Jumper if you remember him), he's a hotly tipped actor and has gotten great reviews for some of his roles

    I think he's really talented as well, quite a varied and expressive actor, maybe Channing Tatum isn't as expressive but he's still a good actor but yeah, set during ancient Rome, Jamie Bell being in it, sword fighting. Awesome

    Thor, Trailer - May 2011
    http://www.imdb.com/video/imdb/vi26843161/

    Oh my actual gosh, it looks freaking amaaaaazing, could easily contend for one of the best films of 2011, ridiculous cast there, I didn't even know Natalie Portman was in it... action looks great, so do the visuals, the story itself is really good

    Can't. Wait.

    Lol so in terms of visuals and action at least, I am number four will be good, it looks better than Jumper which is a good thing, fair enough Jumper isn't the greatest Sci Flick in recent years but it was interesting enough, had a good enough plot but not good enough acting, the characters weren't flehsed out and the ending was a bit of a cop out and didn't seem to be thought through that much

    I like Push and I'll defend it continually, the story's so engaging and attention grabbing, as are the visuals and SFX, I thought it was a unique take on the 'Mutant people with powers are outlawed and hunted down' story, it's very well acted, you can't deny that, Chris Evans, Dakota Fanning and Djimon Honsou put in great performances, as well as Camilla Belle.

    I honestly don't get why Push got such bad reviews and has a bad reputation it's not even that bad

    Race to Witch Mountain was a cheap, family entertainment film, I haven't heard that much criticism or complaining about it, so people should take it for what it is, Dwayne Johnson makes up for the lack of depth in characaters and the acting.

    Not a fan of any of the 3 I assume

    *Anyway you've got a solid and overall good film with Push, an entertaining feel good film with Race to Witch Mountain and a rather lackluster one with Jumper, taking elements from all 3 and adding them to an original film with a new take should be a good thing, imo
