I’m very happy that they’ve announced that filming will begin on Star Trek 2 (aka Start Trek XII) in summer 2011 with a tentative release date in the US of June 29, 2012. I really enjoyed the “first” one and have watched it probably upwards of 5-6 times – if I catch it on TV, I’ll just leave it on. The cast was awesome (although the Spock/Uhura romance is still a bit odd but I’ll go with it) – I loved the characters and getting to see everyone at the beginning, before all their adventures. Big fan.

Chris Pine has also been cast as Jack Ryan in “Moscow”. Jack Ryan is the famed Tom Clancy CIA hero (previously played by Harrison Ford and Ben Affleck). That looks promising – most of the Tom Clancy movies have been great hits in my book.

Also looking forward to Avatar 2 and Avatar 3. Last I heard though, tentative release dates were somewhere around December 2014 and December 2015 respectively so we have some time to kill.

The Hobbit: Part 1 (J.R.R. Tolkien / Lord of the Rings) is in pre-production, scheduled to begin filming in Feb 2011.

The Dark Knight Rises is the next instalment in the Batman franchise – scheduled for release in summer 2012.

Hmm. Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance. Although I usually like Nicolas Cage’s movies and end up going to see them, I can’t say that I’ll definitely go see this once it comes out. I’ll have to wait and see. Although…the guy’s skull is on fire. That’s kinda cool.

The one movie I’m not jumping up and down about is James Cameron’s remake of Titanic in 3D… The original movie was great but I’d much rather see something new instead of something redone and re-released… I mean, there’s milking and there’s MILKING. Fans of the movie may actually go see it. My feeling? Tepid at best.
