Favorites + Trailers

I love trailers.

They're usually composed of the funniest and most exciting parts of a movie, and then coupled with this dramatic, pulsing music. They can also contain some essential plot point that basically tells the entire story and spoils the whole movie, but we'll save that discussion for a later time. My point is that trailers are awesome and do what they're meant to do: lure us in.

I really want this to be good. Good director, good writer, good (and so gorgeous) actress in Young Adult:

This remake seems totally unnecessary since the original did a competent job, but David Fincher is one of my favorite directors, and the actors involved are decent. Plus, you know I'm all about a sexy trailer, so I'll be watching The Girl with The Dragon Tattoo. Not on Christmas like they're advertising though; that totally killed the mood:
(Fincher's influence over Rooney Mara is a little disturbing, however. http://www.vogue.com/magazine/article/rooney-mara-playing-with-fire/)

Johnny Depp. And not playing a pirate in The Rum Diary:

I only found out about Michael Fassbender's charm in the newest Xmen movie. I went for James McAvoy and fell for Magneto. And now I just want to watch everything this magnetic man is in, especially since he's "attracting" (aha. aha.) a lot of Oscar buzz for Shame:

Michelle Yeoh stars in Luc Besson's movie about Aung San Suu Kyi, who, whether you agree with her political views or not, is one courageous Lady:

A real British spy wrote this film about a mole in the British Intelligence. Stories about spies will never get old, especially when the author knows what he's talking about in Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy:
Sometimes, we just need some mindless fun. And we're lucky to have Chris Pine, Tom Hardy, and Reese Witherspoon as an option in This Means War, which is also about spies:

There's also tons of other potentially great and entertaining films coming up like J. Edgar, The Great Gatsby, The Hunger Games (which is skewing a little young, don't you think?), The Descendants, We Need to Talk About Kevin, A Dangerous Method, all the superhero movies, book adaptations, and maybe even the Snow Whites. The list could go on forever.

Which movies are you most looking forward to?
