There are quite a few kick-ass (including Kick-Ass 2) movies coming out of this year. Serious nerdgasm! Here are my picks (list includes only those movies whose trailers have been released)
1) Iron Man 3
This is Marvel’s Iron Man 3 starring Robert Downey Jr. Of course everyone knows about it. Coming after the massive blockbuster ‘The Avengers’, phenomenal expectations on this one. The ‘Hulkbuster – Iron Man’ armour that is shown at the end of the trailer is every geek’s fantasy. #Orgasmic #Major Win.
2) Star Trek Into Darkness
This movie stars Benedict Cumberbatch. How awesome is that?
The plot looks similar to that of the movie ‘Equilibrium’. But hey, this one stars Tom Cruise and Morgan Freeman. Need I say more?
4) Pacific Rim
This movie will seriously kick the Transformers ass. Check out the Rocket punch, will you?
5) Man of Steel
Chris Nolan spear heads this movie while Zack Snyder directs it. Nolan has blown us away with ‘The Batman Trilogy’. Let us wait and see what he does with the best superhero there is.
6) After Earth
Return of the Karate Kid to Pandora!
7) Fast and Furious 6
Cars, racing, rap and action. Add to that Vin Diesel and The Rock!
8) G.I Joe Retaliation
Channing Tatum, The Rock and Bruce Willis in a heavy weight action thriller with fancy gadgets. I am in.
9) World War Z
One word. Brad Pitt. Okay, that is two.
10) Pain and Gain
Mark Wahlberg and The Rock, again. I got to get a pump! I was sold with that dialogue. Only downside is that Michael Bay is the director. I still have nightmares when I think about the Transformers.
11) Warm Bodies
Zombie movie – hmm. This is a comedy – I’m listening. It has Teresa Palmer in it – sold!
12) Monsters University
Disney and Pixar are back with a prequel to the hit animation ‘Monsters, inc.’
13) The Lone Ranger
Two words. Johnny Depp. And from the director of the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ series, the good ones (1, 2 and 3).
14) Despicable Me 2
It is all about the Minions.
15) Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2
The first one was hilarious. From the trailer this looks like fun too.
This list is by no means exhaustive. Trailers of much awaited movies Thor: The Dark World, The Wolverine, Kick-Ass 2 are yet to be released.
ps: This list is in no particular order. It has been arranged as served by my memory.
ps 1: Snitch is one other movie I’d like to see. The trailer looks promising. Any action movie starring The Rock should be worth the time. Including this one, The Rock has 4 big releases this year. Tremendous achievement for any movie star. Not to forget he did win the ‘WWE title’ during Royal Rumble this year. If I know any better, this is one happening year for him.
