Top ten 2011 SCI-FI movies we can’t wait to see…
A list of the top ten SCI-FI movies we are excited to see this year.
10.) Priest – This looks like it is going to be really really cheesy or really really cheesy good. Either way, I’m down to watch it. Based on a comic book published by Tokyopop, Priest looks like it will satisfy my bloodlust! Priest hits theaters May 13, 2011.
9.) Thor- I’m not really excited to see this movie for Thor as much as I am excited in seeing Natalie Portman in another movie. Thor comes out May 6, 2011.
8.) X-Men: First Class – I was actually hesitant to watch another X-Men movie but when I heard James McAvoy had signed on, my interests were piqued. This film will be released June 2, 2011.
7.) Rise of the Planet of the Apes- James Franco stars in this prequel to the Planet of the Apes. This one surprised me when the trailer came out a couple of weeks ago but I was still intrigued. This film looks better than a lot of movies that are coming out this year and I look forward to the story. Rise of the Planet of the Apes is set to be released August 5, 2011.
6.) Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol – Although J.J. Abrams is not directing this Mission: Impossible, he is signed on as one of the writers. Directed by Brad Bird, this film features an all star cast of A-Listers including Tom Cruise, Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg, and (the 2nd reason I want to see this film) Josh Holloway. No official trailer has been released. Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol is set to be released December 16, 2011.
5.) Captain America: The First Avenger – No introduction is needed for this film starring Chris Evans as skinny Steve Rogers and then the hero Captain America. This film is set to be released July 22, 2011.
4.) Another Earth – I hadn’t heard about this movie until I saw the new trailer a couple of days ago, but I knew immediately I wanted to see it. I don’t know much about the movie except that the Earth the characters belong to suddenly become aware of second planet Earth. What would you do if there was another YOU in this universe? This film is set to be released July 20, 2011.
3.) Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 - The final chapter of the Harry Potter series: Why wouldn’t I want to see it? This movie is set to be released July 15, 2011 and is sure to be hit amongst fans and casual movie-goers alike.
2.) Cowboys and Aliens – Careful. Awesomeness below. Continue if you dare. Harrison Ford and Daniel Craig face-off in this spacey western. Cowboys and Aliens hits theaters July 29, 2011.
AND THE #1 MOVIE I WANT TO SEE THIS YEAR IS (DRUMROLL PLEASE!)-
1.) Super 8 -Set to be released June 10, 2011, this movie is my #1 for several reasons. J.J. Abrams, Steven Spielberg, monster/alien film, E.T. like conditions… mysterious happenings. I’m there. Check out screenshots of the trailer here.
