Hot films for 2007

Film to look out for 2007!
By Matt Adcock
2007 is looking like a sequeltastic bumper year for films – we will get to witness live action Transformers stomping over the scenery and Mr. Bean making his big screen comeback – here are some future films that you might want to look out for.
Mel Gibson’s Apocalypto looks intriguing whilst Will Smith is set to deliver fun and feeling in Pursuit Of Happyness…
Grab a nice Chianti and savour the rise of a monster (Lecter) in Hannibal Rising or prepare to witness the British film of the year from the Shaun of the Dead team comes police action comedy Hot Fuzz!
David Fincher's eagerly awaited crime thriller Zodiac should deliver big thrills and Frank Miller’s 300 looks set to provide large scale comic book based battle heroics on a whole new scale.
Sci fi oddness Sunshine from Trainspotting’s Danny Boyle has to worth a look and revenge of the normal people in Straightheads starring Gillian Anderson and Danny Dyer could be a powerful journey too.
Get ready for some serious blockbuster action as Spider-Man 3 swings onto screens closely followed by Johnny Depp and Keira Knightley in Pirates Of The Caribbean: At World's End – do the words ‘must see’ mean anything to you?
Shrek The Third is one you’ll want to check out, whilst Fantastic Four 2: The Rise Of The Silver Surfer could well be considerably more fantastic than the first one and of course has Jessica Alba returning.
"live free and DIE HARD!!"
More big scale action with Bruce Willis in Die Hard 4 or Live Free Or Die Hard, magical mischief is back in Harry Potter And The Order Of The Phoenix plus what might just be the animated film of the year: The Simpsons Movie comes to town.
Holiday monster hunting in 10,000 BC, teen detectives in Nancy Drew and a trilogy is completed with Matt Damon’s The Bourne Ultimatum.
Take a trip back to Sin City in the aptly titled Sin City 2 or find some higher brow drama from Atonement - Ian McEwan's wartime novel about innocence starring Keira Knightley.
Halloween thrills from the yet another remake – this one of Halloween itself by Rob Zombie or try Stardust a fantasy with a great cast attached including Robert De Niro.
American Gangster sees Ridley Scott directing Denzel Washington, whilst I Am Legend sees Will Smith faces off against vampires in a post-apocalyptic world where he's the last man alive (as you do).
Family animation Bee Movie looks fun – it is the tale of a young bee who has just graduated from college but is disillusioned at his lone career choice of: making honey. And let’s hope that the second National Treasure film starring Nicolas Cage and subtitled: The Book of Secrets is better than the first one!
Hopefully something for everyone…
