Movies Coming Soon (and Why I Want to See Them)

We've discussed movies on here. A lot. Quite a lot. I'll be the first to admit that it's all my fault. Because I'm a bit movie-obsessed. But why is that?

Simple answer. It's all about the story. I love stories. Therefore, I love books...and movies. All kinds (okay, I'm not a big horror fan, but I don't blame the genre for that. It's because I happen to be a big scaredy-cat. If I weren't, I would probably totally love horror, too). Anyway, because of my love for stories, I'm always anticipating the upcoming books and movies I want to read and see. Some of those movies are already out (The Butler, Elysium, Wolverine...) and I just haven't gotten around to seeing them yet. But some are still on the way, far in the future (i.e., 2014). Here are trailers from just a few. (And yes, I do tend to--mostly--stick to the fun and heartwarming ones when I post these trailers).

How to Train Your Dragon 2

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

Rio 2

Saving Mr. Banks

About Time (I would watch this just for Bill Nighy, who plays the father)

What's on your movie watch list? Of the ones that are out now, older ones (on dvds or tv) or coming in the future, are there any that are on your "must see" list?

SAVING MR. BANKS is on my movie list. I love the movie MARY POPPINS and the two leads, Tom Hanks and Emma Thompson, are are great favourites of mine. This should be a hoot.

I also want to see the next HOBBIT movie.

I agree. I loved that clip (as well as Tom Hanks and Emma Thompson). And yes on the next Hobbit movie, too. Have they sent out a teaser yet? I haven't looked.
