Really can't wait to see The Hobbit! So much so that I reread the book for the first time in close to 30 years. Like PJ says, a very different tone from TLOTR trilogy. One thing though, I wonder how he'll stretch the book out over two movies. I think he could have done one 3-hour movie, but two 90 minute features would be a little sad. Anyway, I can't wait!

Nothing new or original at all. It's no wonder the box office is down in most countries.

Milking the franchise just prior to the Disney take over of Marvel. Just Business, hire no name actors on a whim, focus on CG and viral marketing, the brand name and you have yourself a winner :P

I thought "2012" would be popular in 2012.

Julia Roberts is the wicked queen to Lily Collins’ Snow White in “Mirror Mirror,” with the banished heroine raised by dwarfish rogues and leading a battle against the mean old monarch. “Twilight” star Kristen Stewart is the warrior princess in “Snow White and the Huntsman,” trained by a rugged hunk (“Thor” star Hemsworth) to wage war against her own wicked queen (Charlize Theron).

Well. I've seen "Snow White " the horror movie, now I7ve got to see Snow White: The comedy, and maybe, if I have nothing else to do, Snow White : The Fantasy -Action, where sick-skinny Kristen Steward is going to pick up that iron armour and that huge sword with her willpower.

“Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter,” featuring the president (Benjamin Walker) emancipating the world from bloodsuckers;

This must be some major BS.

First up is “The Avengers,” teaming Robert Downey Jr as Iron Man, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Chris Evans as Captain America, Mark Ruffalo as the Incredible Hulk, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow and Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye.

Sounds totally unworthy watching.

But I'm gonna watch Ghost Rider and "The Wrath of the Titans"- the first movies were absolutely funny. Ralph Fiennes 's Hades: "You are specks of dust beneath our fingernails. Your very breath is a gift from Olympus". Me: WAHAHAHAHA!!! Brad Pitt in zombie movie is also worth watching, for the fun.

When I first heard about Collin Farrell starring in the remake of Total Recall, I tought "Poor Arnie, I know he cheated, but this is too cruel!" I like Collin, but...come on!

Taken, The Expendables and GI Joe were bad enough, I tought they'll never get a sequel. I guess I was wrong. Besides, Bruce Willis joins the cast of both The Expendables 2 and GI Joe 2. And I really hope The Bourne series and Batman series end up for good. But wait, in 10 years they'll start making remakes....

With all those titles of re-do movies up there, I would be looking forward to watching "The Hobbit" ... as it's a different story line of the LOTR trilogy ... way before even. And maybe "The Avengers" ...

"Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow"

She should play Black Widow the wrestler! Oh, what a web of woe she weaves for her opponents!

Erika Sawajiri should play her arch rival!

"Billy Crystal and Bette Midler as a couple"

This should be good.

"Anne Hathaway as Catwoman"

Erika Sawajiri should play Catwoman, and Scarlett Johansson should play her arch rival Batwoman! Woo hoo!
