30 Movies to Look Forward to in 2011: Pt. II
16. Restless (?) - Mia Wasikowska and Henry Hopper do the star-crossed teenage lovers thing for Gus Van Sant.
19. We Bought a Zoo (12/11) - Cameron Crowe hasn't made a movie since the muddled piece of tripe that was Elizabethtown, but he's gearing back up for a very Crowe-y adaptation with Matt Damon, ScarJo, and Elle Fanning about a family who owns a zoo in the English countryside. Won't that be nice?
25. Jane Eyre (3/11) - Charlotte Bronte's classic novel gets another cinematic adaptation. It's time for some rollicking English intrigue on the moors.
30. Paul (3/11) - There are certainly plenty of things to worry about with Paul. The sci-fi comedy's early trailers featured an overabundance of juvenile bathroom humor and absurd hijinks, but it's got enough legitimate comedy clout for me to keep the faith. Starring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, Spaced), the British pair who have yet to fail, as two UK comic book geeks on a road trip stateside who come across a real live alien (voiced by Seth Rogen). It's actually got an R rating, so let's hope it's not dumbed down into gimmicky kid's stuff.
