At WU, we feel it’s never too early to begin planning where you’re going to spend your 2007 moviegoing dollar. So many decisions. Do you wait until the film comes out on DVD, or do you bite the bullet, say goodbye to a $20 bill (factoring in snacks), and hit the theatre?
Fortunately MSN News has published a list of some of the most anticipated movies of 2007. Fantasy and action will rank high this year, as will superheroes.
Another unfortunate trend for risk-adverse Hollywood is the insistence on churning out sequels. Don’t get me wrong, sequel quality has been on the rise in the last few years. I’ll most certainly haul my butt to the theatre for Pirates of the Carribbean 3, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, and possibly Shrek the Third. Why? Because these movies delivered, time and again, and I didn’t feel like I was wasting my money seeing them in the theatre. But do we really need another National Treasure 2? Mr. Bean’s Holiday? I’m sure somewhere in Hollywood, someone’s taking a meeting to produce Garfield 3: Catacular.
