Man On A Ledge - A heist thriller starring Sam Worthington and Jamie Bell. One man distracts police by standing on a ledge threatening to jump whilst his brother pulls of the biggest diamond heist of all time. Sounds boring eh?
This Means War - An action comedy starring Tom Hardy, Chris Pine and Reese Witherspoon. The two guys play spies who go to war in an attempt to win over Reese Witherspoon. The cast is promising but the premise is hit or miss. We’ll have to see.
Haywire - An action thriller, Steven Soderbergh directs and it stars Ewan McGregor, Michael Fassbender and Channing Tatum to name a few. It looks like a mix of Bourne and The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, so don’t miss it.
The Bourne Legacy - I’m shocked to be endorsing this because how can a Bourne film not have Matt Damon? It’s like Die Hard without John McClane. But Hollywood is set on proving all the haters wrong by casting Jeremy Renner, Edward Norton and Rachel Weisz. I’m still cautious but those three have the potential to start a new trilogy.
Looper - Not an obvious choice, but the indie director or Brick and Brothers Bloom is bringing a mind-bending action thriller and has cast Bruce Willis, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Emily Blunt. Interesting cast and apparently a very interesting script.
The Amazing Spiderman - Directed by (500) Days Of Summer director Marc Webb and starring the incredible young talents of Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone. I’m unsurprised to here a lot of scepticism towards this film. After all it was only a decade ago that Tobey’s spiderman graced us. But trust me, it’ll be fresh and hopefully a lot better (see trailer for evidence).
Savages - Oliver Stone has put together a fascinating ensemble cast with Aaron Johnson, Benicio Del Toro, Emile Hirsch, Uma Thurman and John Travolta to name just a few. It’s about two drug manufacturers forced into conflict with a Mexican drug cartel.
Bond 23 - I’ve never been the biggest Bond fan. Like most I enjoy Casino Royale and then was utterly disappointed with its predecessor so when I heard of a third starring the sometimes bland Daniel Craig I didn’t exactly leap for joy. But the news of Sam Mendes’ involvement is fascinating and I can’t help wonder about the possibilities.
Dark Knight Rises - I’m not going to reel off all the A-List names but with Tom Hardy and Anne Hathaway added to this historic series, I expect nothing but a brilliant finale from Nolan. The only doubt in my mind is, how do you follow The Dark Knight?
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey - Peter Jackson was clearly the only man for the job. I’m thrilled he’s on board and Martin Freeman should be the perfect fit. One can only hope the two films don’t hit their head on the bar that was raised so high by The Lord Of The Rings trilogy.
Django Unchained - Quentin Tarantino’s next is about an ex slave who sets out to take revenge on his former master. The story sounded exciting by itself but with the news that Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz and Leonardo DiCaprio are all officially cast, I can’t help think Quentin is going to make yet another violent masterpiece.
