"and lead us into cinematic temptation in 2006..."
Matt's Hot Film Tips for 2006...
Gazing into my magic mirror of future film releases in 2006 I see many things - I see sequels but the bucketload which may or may not be any good, I see a few potential original hits, I see some almost certain turkeys and as part of my ongoing community service here are a few of the films I'm going to be checking out:
"new man of steel on the block"
Superman Returns already generating big-screen buzz, Kevin Spacey as Lex Luthor, Kate Bosworth as Lois Lane and Brandon Routh as the man of steel. This one will be big in June!!
The Da Vinci Code , based on Dan Brown's best-seller (which I haven't read yet), could be a hot ticket in May. Ron Howard will be directing Tom Hanks if that helps give you an idea...
Miami Vice has my spider sense tingling because I loved the original TV series and writer-director Michael Mann normally delivers - throw in Oscar-winner Jamie Foxx and bad boy Colin Farrell and we could be talking major fun in July.
Casino Royale , the latest 007 Daniel Craig will get to show us if he can deliver as the new James Bond in November.
X-Men 3 looks like one of my potential 'films of the year' - snick those claws out in anticipation!!
Mission: Impossible III could go either way but I'm hoping it rocks.
Captain Jack Sparrow's return to the screen in July with Keith Richards, Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest will be a winner...
'A Dame to Kill For' - aka - Sin City 2 has to be on your 'must see' list too.
I may be out on my own here but Underworld: Evolution is one I'll be seeing with anticipation.
And whilst Die Hard 4.0 may or may not see the light of day in '06, Bruce Willis will rock in Alpha Dog - mark my words...
Cult wild cards also worth checking if you ask me are:30 Days of Night (2006)
Bubba Nosferatu (2006)
Clerks 2 (2006)
And for those sickos out there - this will potentially be your film of the year: Hostel
