I’ve come up with a list of ten movies coming up in 2011 that you should definitely be excited about:
10 – Larry Crowne:
Don’t judge me but I can’t help but be excited about a movie that has Julia Roberts and Tom Hanks.
9 – Transformers 3: Dark Side Of The Moon
Sure, it’s already a financial hit, a week before its release, but as someone who was thouroughly entertained by the first two Transformers movies and even though Megan Fox will not be present in this one (sadness), I expect this to be one of the biggest movies of 2011, at least financially. And if you’ve liked the first two, this one should be a no-brainer for you to go watch.
8 – Crazy Stupid Love:
Emma Stone: “Damn, it’s like you’re photoshopped” *insert lots of laughter* —> *googles release date*
7 – Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows
I have really enjoyed the first Sherlock Holmes movie and hopefully the sequel delivers as well.
6 – One Day:
Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess spend the night of their college graduation together and throughout the years, they revisit each other to see where they are in their lives. Based on the trailer, this looks like it’ll be a very interesting movie.
5 – The Tree Of Life:
This movie has been very polarizing. So I have no idea what to make of it. But it was one the Palme D’Or at the Cannes Festival, so it must be good enough, no?
4 – Where Do We Go Now?
The new Nadine Labaki Lebanese movie. Set for a September 22nd release in Lebanon, this is probably one of the most hyped about Lebanese movies this year. It doesn’t hurt that some of it was filmed in my hometown.
3 – A Dangerous Method:
A movie with Keira Knightley, Vigo Mortensen and Michael Fassbender about Freud? I’m there. Just watch the trailer. The movie looks brilliant!
2 – The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo:
Just finished the book upon which this movie is based and it’s a highly entertaining read. Set for a late 2011 release, the movie stars Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara and, even though no trailer has been released yet, judging by the movie’s poster, this will be great.
1 – Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2
This should be a no brainer. Epic trailer. The movie is based on an epic book and it’s the conclusion of the series that was an important part of the upbringing of millions.
