Movie Day

It's been a while since I went completely off topic, so I think I'm about due.

I'm super excited about the 2009 movie lineup. While the year originally looked a bit thin, it's stating to shape up to be a huge year for "nerd" movies, and that's with only one big franchise making a showing this year.

Get your popcorn, time for some trailers.

First up is a trailer I just discovered last night, and I now cannot wait to see.


I've watched this trailer at least a dozen times in the last 24 hours. The CG is amazing. The action is astounding. Check out that freaking SOUNDTRACK!

Some other unheard of movies:


"A very select group of people in life are truly gifted. Special is a movie about everyone else."
Michael Rapaport is hilarious.


Now for some bigger films:

Monsters vs. Aliens

Yes, Stephen Colbrt is the President.

Friday the 13th

X-Men Origins: Wolverine

It looks like they made Gambit pretty awesome. That's saying a lot, since I freaking HATED Gambit in the comics. Look! Deadpool!

Not a theatrical release, but awesome, anyway:

Hilk VS

Star Trek

And, my #1 most anticipated movie of the year:


I've been waiting years for this. Zack Snyder nailed it. It makes me cry every time I try to talk about this movie and I get the response, "What's Watchmen?"
While I'm not really a fan of the Smashing Pumpkins, I don't think they could have picked a better song for the trailer.

Of course, there are some stinkers out there this year:

Dragonball: Evolution

Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun Li

When you create a movie with no mass-market appeal, and THEN piss off your fanbase, you're screwed.

Still to come: Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen and GI Joe: Rise of Cobra will be premiering during the Super Bowl.
