Director's Cut: Patrick's top 10 anticipated movies for 2012

30 December 2011 3:57 PM, PST | Corona's Coming Attractions | See recent Corona's Coming Attractions news »

Looking forward to the next year of movies has been a tradition on Coming Attractions. After all, the whole reason why CA got started in the first place was to talk about movies that were in development, at a golden time when each film had awesome potential. As we watch the days grow shorter between their release dates, we love to imagine how great watching these movies will be. Whether the movies actually live up to the mental hype we give them is something else entirely.

But now’s not the time for being pessimistic. The final hours of 2011 are upon us and it’s with great hope that we look forward to what Hollywood will offer us in 2012. And there are some movies that I’m looking forward to seeing more than others.

Counting down, my top 10 most anticipated movies of 2012 are:

John Carter Concept Art Revealed!

30 December 2011 3:32 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

It’s still a few months away yet but John Carter has to be one of the most highly-anticipated visual events of 2012.

Directed by Andrew Stanton and adapted from the Edgar Rice Burroughs book, John Carter tells of… er, John Carter, a Civil War vet who finds himself transported to the planet Barsoom, where he has to tackle some hefty barbarian types and save a princess. Standrad stuff then.

When Thn caught some footage at Empire Big Screen earlier this year, the digital trickery and 3D were nothing short of stunning. John Carter looks to be pure action-adventure brilliance, and as this concept art reveals, an absolute visual feast.

The concept art outlines the vision for the planet Barsoom, which was realised in Utah’s Zion National Park.

John Carter stars Taylor Kitsch, Bryan Cranston, Mark Strong, Dominic West, Thomas Haden Church, Lynn Collins, James Purefoy, and Polly walker. It »

As we while away the last few days and hours of 2011, looking back upon all the great, unforgettable fare that descended upon our cineplexes this year, we can't help but get excited for what the new year will bring us.

We might not get another "Harry Potter," but there's a lot coming down the pike to fill the void: a new "Alien"-esque film in "Prometheus," the gritty and ruthless "Hunger Games," the superhero spectacle "The Avengers," and a brand new Batman, via "The Dark Knight Rises." Here's a brief rundown of what we hope delivers on the hype and makes our "Best of 2012" lists this time next year.

New John Carter of Mars Looks via Japan

New John Carter of Mars Looks via Japan

Get ready to sample the new international trailer of Disney’s John Carter of Mars. If you like action and science fiction, you won’t want to miss this.

Every hero has an origin and this trailer, much of which is in Japanese, reveals that of John Carter. The human war hero understandably begins his incredible adventure where most of us do; on earth. If he appears at all super heroic in the trailer, then there is a simple explanation for that. There is less gravity on Mars, allowing an Earthing to jump great heights and distances with very little effort. The inhabitants of Barsoom, or the red planet we humans call Mars, were born there and are acclimatized to the low gravity, meaning they can’t do the same remarkable things.

It’s a good thing Carter gets transported to Barsoom »

New image from Disney/Pixar’s ‘Brave’

28 December 2011 10:30 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Check out this brand new image from Disney’s latest animated movie set in the Highlands of Scotland, Brave, the 13th feature-length animated film from Pixar Animation Studios. Directed by Mark Andrews (The Incredibles, Ratatouille, John Carter of Mars) and Brenda Chapman (The Lion King, Prince of Egypt),  the film features Kelly Macdonald as the voice of Merida, a skilled archer and the daughter of King Fergus (voice of Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (voice of Emma Thompson).

Determined to carve her own path in life, Merida defies an age-old custom sacred to the uproarious lords of the land:massive Lord MacGuffin (voice of Kevin McKidd), surly Lord Macintosh (voice of Craig Ferguson) and cantankerous Lord Dingwall (voice of Robbie Coltrane). Merida’s actions inadvertently unleash chaos and fury in the kingdom, and when she turns to an eccentric old Wise Woman (voice of Julie Walters) for help, she is granted an ill-fated wish. »

Japanese Trailers for Battleship and John Carter (of Mars)

27 December 2011 3:44 PM, PST | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Because impending New Years festivities and post-Christmas blues means I’m forced to reach for anything that even resembles post-able movie news, even foreign trailers that hit the net days and days ago, here are two Japanese trailers for two big-budget sci-fi films that will either do relatively well or sink like stones once they hit theaters. Please to take a gander at slightly new-ish trailers for Peter Berg’s alien-invadin’-on-the-waters flick “Battleship” and Andrew Stanton’s alien-fightin’-on-Mars-though-we’re-too-scared-to-actually-use-the-word-Mars adventure “John Carter” (formerly “of Mars”). Enjoy, fans of sci-fi movie trailers from the land of the rising sun. “John Carter” and the boys arrive first on March 9, 2012, followed by “Battleship” on May 18, 2012. Of the two flicks, “Battleship” is the one with the honest to goodness Japanese movie star amongst its cast in Tadanobu Asano. (In case, you know, you were wonderin’.) »

With the new year approaching, it’s time to start looking ahead to the films of 2012 – and with that in mind, we’re bringing you two new international trailers for a couple of films that people are already anticipating: Battleship and John Carter. The “international” part should clue you in that these are trailers for foreign markets (in this case, both are for Japan), so they feature some Japanese voiceovers and subtitles, but everything else (including some new footage) is in English. First up, a new trailer for John Carter. The film’s Us debut is getting ever closer (it hits theaters on March 9th) and this new clip has us pretty interested in finally seeing it. The effects look decent and the story of Carter (Taylor Kitsch), a war-weary...
