Movies to Look Forward To, Part Seven


Bloodrayne -- An adaptation of the successful videogame of the same name, starring Kristanna Loken (who was the cyborg in Terminator III). No A-list names attached to the movie, but a bunch of good character and supporting actors, which makes me have hopes for the movie. Rayne is a half-vampire who who is trying to avenge her mother's rape by the King of the Vampires, definitely an interesting storyline.
Teaser Trailer
No date yet, but likely late 2005


The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe -- Finally got to see the trailer the other day at the theater attached to War of the Worlds. Looks like this one is going to be great. Between this and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, I think this will be a good year for intelligent adaptations of children's works.
December 9th


The Corpse Bride -- Along with Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, the second Tim Burton/Johnny Depp team-up of the year. And I'm glad Burton is doing another movie with the stop-motion animation he used for The Nightmare Before Christmas. This one is an adaptation of a Russian folk tale where a man finds himself married to a dead woman -- creepy, but I like that Burton gothic flair.
September 23rd
Trailer


V for Vendetta -- I showed the teaser poster before, but here is the new poster. I'm really looking forward to this graphic novel adaptation.
November 4th


2046 -- This is a Chinese movie I've heard some good things about. It will be a limited release, so I hope I'll see it in Kansas City so I don't have to wait for the DVD. Here's the blurb from Yahoo: Chow Mo Wan moves from being a gambler to a pulp fiction writer, and '2046' follows him through various liaisons with several beautiful women. Merging past, present, and future, '2046' is at once the number of the hotel room in which the couple from Wong Kar-Wai's 'In The Mood For Love' conducted their extra marital encounters, and the date of Hong Kong's final integration into China.
August 5th (limited)


Elizabethtown -- I just saw the trailer for this movie I hadn't heard a whole lot about. It stars Orlando Bloom and Kirsten Dunst (who I really liked in the tennis movie Wimbledon). Here's the blurb: After causing the Oregon shoe company he works for to lose hundreds of millions of dollars, Drew Baylor (Bloom) is fired for his mistake, and promptly also dumped by his girlfriend, Ellen (Biel). On the verge of suicide, Drew is oddly given a new purpose in life when he is brought back to his family's small Kentucky hometown of Elizabethtown following the death of his father, Mitch, as it falls to him to make sure that his dying wishes are fulfilled. On the way home, Drew meets a flight attendant, Claire Colburn (Dunst), with whom he falls in love, in a romance that helps his life get back on track.
July 29th


The Fog -- A remake of the John Carpenter movie from 1980, being produced by John Carpenter, which I think is pretty cool. It will be interesting to see how it is re-imagined. The story is about dead sailors who come under the cover of fog and kill the residents of a small town. It stars Tom Welling, who my husband and I really like as Clark Kent in the show Smallville.

I saw The Lion, W&W trailer at Star Wars -- it looks incredible.

I had no idea Tim Burton was coming out with The Corpse Bride...I loved The Nightmare Before Christmas. When I first glanced at the poster, I thought maybe you were showing a re-release DVD of that movie...but it's a new one! Whoo hoo!

And Tom Welling ... god, I feel like such a dirty fangirl sometimes :)

HEY! I emailed you and I am feeling all neglected :(

Haven't seen The Nightmare Before Christmas, don't know if the lil sis has or not. But The Lion, W&W looks cool.

I loved the original movie "The Fog." I hope the new one isn't just an excuse for CGI with no interest in plot or characterization. (Example: new version of House of Wax - yuck! Plotless, clueless...) I can't wait for The Chronicles of Narnia!

CW said...

Whoa! I've never seen THE FOG. I'm all set to see CON and TCB, though, and maybe check out the others. Thanks for posting, now I'm all excited about movies I can't see yet! :P
