LET'S ALL GO TO THE MOVIES spoilers only trailers

There are some new movies coming out that look promising.

For the Thrillers:

Starring Hayden Christensen, Samuel L. Jackson, Jamie Bell and Rachel Bilson.

A sci-fi thriller. A genetic anomaly allows a young man to teleport himself anywhere. He discovers this gift has existed for centuries and finds himself in a war that has been raging for thousands of years between "Jumpers" and those who have sworn to kill them.

Staring Anthony Hopkins, Christian Slater, John Turturro, and Michael Clarke Duncan

This is film written and directed by Anthony Hopkins. Hopkins describes his first screenplay as "about a man, who's caught in a slipstream of time falling back on itself and he remembers his own future.

Alien vs Predator Requiem
Starring Reiko Aylesworth, John Ortiz, Johnny Lewis, David Paetkau, Chelah Horsdal

Another installment in this on going series. You know what it's about. This time the battle is on the earth's surface. This is a red banner preview so be of age.

For the Kids (and Kids at heart):

Staring animated characters

A film from folks over at Pixar. The year is 2700. WALL-E, a robot, spends every day doing what he was made for. But soon, he will discover what he was meant for. Should be good fun for all.

Horton Hears A Who
Staring more animated characters

Horton the Elephant struggles to protect a microscopic community from his neighbors who refuse to believe it exists. The makers of Ice Age have put together this one. From the trailer the animation looks really true to the Dr. Seuss style and I love that.

For the Hero:

Iron Man
Starring Robert Downey Jr, Terrance Howard, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jeff Bridges and Samuel Jackson

When Tony Stark is forced to create a life support suit to keep him alive after an accident he decides to use the technology in his suit to fight crime. All you comic book heads, have you seen it? Probably. But if not here you go. What I like to point out is the bad ass Audi at the beginning and that beautiful Terrance Howard that pops up in there as well.

The Dark Knight
Starring Christian Bale, Heath Ledger, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Morgan Freeman, and Gary Oldman.

Batman and James Gordon join forces with Gotham's new District Attorney, Harvey Dent, to take on a psychotic bank robber known as The Joker, whilst other forces plot against them, and Joker's crimes grow more and more deadly. (Kinda sounds a little like the original). The teasers and trailers I've found really do just that: Tease. But this is certainly promises to be the darkest of the Batman series. I'm curious to see how Heath Ledger does as the Joker.

Looks like 2008 is shaping up to be a good year for movies. FINALLY!
