Coming Soon!

This is going to be One Good year! Especially if you are as big a fan as I am of the comic/pulp movie genre.

Ghost Rider - Trailer
Ghost Rider has always been one of the elusive comic book anti-heroes whose out-of-the-world features would make any movie maker run miles away. But the trailer looks promising and Nicholas Cage seems to fit into the role pretty well.

Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer - Trailer

I've never really been a Fantastic 4 fan and found the first installment to be rather boring. I guess the producers realized it too and roped in The most amazing planet hopper aka The Silver Surfer to add that extra sheen and I believe it's a mix that cannot fail. Check out the Human Torch chasing the Silver Surfer in the trailer. Good Times!

Spiderman 3 - Trailer
Venom + Sandman + Green Goblin + an already established mega million fan base, would undoubtedly make Spidey 3 the hottest thing to hit the screens this year. It's always good to see a movie exploring the idea of losing oneself to the dark side and the struggle within a Superhero. Which is exactly what this movie is about - The Battle Within.

Transformers - Trailer
Anyone who has grown up on the Transformers cartoon would still have that tank which folds into the evil Megatron. Director Michael Bay of 'Armageddon' fame will not let us down on this one. It would be interesting to observe the extent to which detail can be incorporated in such movies that require a tremendous amount of animation.

Grindhouse - Trailer
What happens when you bring together the Directors of 'Desperado' and 'Pulp Fiction' together? Pure unadulterated sleazy action witfest!!
This movie is actually made up of two stories: Death Proof and Planet Terror, one each by the maestros, Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino, each promising to bring back the grindhouse theater going experience of the 70s and 80s.

Now I know that not all of these may turn out to be as good as expected but I can't help being partial to them.. I guess we'll just have to wait and watch!
