Tron: Legacy, How Do You Know?, True Grit, Little Fockers, etc. But 2011 is nigh upon us, and we here at PopWatch central could not help but notice how jam-packed the impending year truly is with highly anticipated movies of all stripes. To wit: In the spring, we’ve got the Johnny Depp animated film Rango (March 4), sci-fi action flicks I Am Number Four (Feb. 18) and Battle: Los Angeles (March 11), and Zack Snyder’s geektastic fantasia Sucker Punch (March 25). The summer promises the flying fists of Kung Fu Panda: The Kaboom of Doom (May 26), the mysterious J.J. Abrams film Super 8 (June 10), the plastered doofuses of The Hangover 2 (May 26), more of Michael Bay’s stampeding robots in Transformers: Dark of the Moon (July 1), and a cavalcade of comic-book movies: Thor (May 6), Captain America (July 22), X-Men: First Class (June 3), Green Lantern (June 17). And a full year from now, we’ll be talking about fall and holiday movies like Steven Spielberg’s The Adventures of Tintin: Secret of the Unicorn (Dec. 23) and Steven Spielberg’s War Horse (Dec. 28), or Tom Cruise in Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol (Dec. 16) and Daniel Craig in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (Dec. 21).Yeah yeah yeah, 2010 isn’t quite over, and there are still several films high on our want-to-see list —
Shoosh. That is a lot of movies, PopWatchers, and that’s barely scratching the surface. For one thing, I haven’t even mentioned the return of Capt. Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides (May 20), the beginning of the end of The Twilight Saga with Breaking Dawn Part 1 (Nov. 18), and the end of the end of the Harry Potter saga with The Deathly Hallows — Part 2 (July 15). So many movies! But which, dear readers, can you simply not wait a single second more to see?
