The Spanish teaser for The Impossible looks like fun.
Just read about a documentary about the Shining called “Room 237”. It examines all the different conspiracy theories surronding the film, and also looks into the native american allegory. Some People actually believe the U.S. goverment hired Kubrick to direct the Apollo 11 moon landing!! lol!! Can’t wait to see it!!!! If anyone is lucky enough to make it to Sundance this year, they should check it out.
@Mubiuser, I hope he makes Inherent Vice asap, with Downey Jr. as Sportello. If RDJ’s not available, he should wait until he is though.
I should add Malick’s Lawless (maybe 2013). Malick, Ryan Gosling, Christian Bale, Rooney Mara…win.
Room 237 sounds cool also.
Lines of Wellington – Valeria Sarmiento’s tribute to Raúl Ruiz. starring Deneueve, Malkovich, Huppert, Piccoli, Paredes and many other Ruiz favourites!

and how did i forget this :O)
and how did i forget this holla! :O)
Does Herzog not have anything coming up this year? Oh well, I need to catch up on his older stuff anyways.
Also kind of looking forward to Come Back to Sorrento, featuring Wiliam H Macy, Rebecca Pidgeon and a screenplay by David Mamet. My hopes aren’t too high, as the last film that he directed/wrote that I really liked was The Spanish Prisoner, but there generally is no such thing as a bad Mamet screenplay, at least IMO.
And not a film, but I’m really looking forward to Veep, an HBO American adaptation of The Thick of It (which was also the basis for the film In The Loop). It’s gonna star Julia Louis Dreyfus and Tony Hale.
the new Spike Lee joint could be interesting
“the new Spike Lee joint could be interesting”
Are you talking about Red Hook Summer? Is that the “sequel” to Do the Right Thing? Seems like I remember hearing about that (but had forgotten), and Wikipedia says that he’ll be playing a character named Mookie. Since Do the Right Thing is one of my favorite films, I’m not sure how I feel about this
Haha, looking at his Wikipedia page, the section of “Controversy” is longer than the section discussing his film career. Ah Spike, who will you piss off next?
Bomb (possibly 2013)
The Motel Life
The Divide (comes out Friday!)
In addition to Lines of Wellington, I really hope that Sarmiento’s Maria Graham: Diary of a Residence in Chile and Ruiz’s La noche de enfrente see the light of day in 2012.
django unchained, dark knight rises, the total recall remake, the avangers, dark shadows.
the women in black, i’d really like to see dan radcliffe, doing something different then harry potter.
I can’t believe there’s only been one mention of Gravity so far… it’s Cuarón’s first film in six damn years!
Focus Features will release Wes Anderson’s newest feature film, Moonrise Kingdom, in theaters on Friday, May 25, 2012. Moonrise Kingdom, set in the 1960’s, is about a young boy and girl (newcomers Jared Gilman and Kara Hayward) who fall in love and run away together. Townspeople mobilize to search for them on a unique island off the coast of New England. The film was co-written by director Anderson and Roman Coppola, and heralds an all-star cast including Ed Norton, Bill Murray, Frances McDormand, Bruce Willis, Tilda Swinton, Harvey Keitel and Bob Balaban, as well as a host of local Rhode Island talent. Moonrise Kingdom was filmed entirely in Rhode Island and will showcase the Ocean State to a global audience.
No one else had said it, so I will – Les Miserables
I saw the trailer for Rock of Ages and wanted to shoot myself in the face.
^I actually did shoot myself in the face.
I’m typing this comment from a hospital bed.
Btw – The Woman in Black is a giant pile of shit. Not scary, not interesting. Pointless nonsense.
I saw Rock of Ages on stage (free tix) and it was excruciating!
Hugo – Scorcese
A Dangerous Method – Cronenberg
