R2D2... The One With Movies I Can't F**king Wait For.

I haven't done one of these in a while, so here we are. I've been thinking of doing this for a couple weeks, but decided the time is right.

- Just to get it out of the way, release Half-Blood Prince already! It's my favorite book of the series, and rumor has it, it's the best film thus far. Stupid Warner Bros. for pushing it back 8 months...

- I just saw the trailer for Zombieland, and my God, does this movie look awesome. I've known about it for a while, but the trailer made it a #1 priority. It'll be like merging Shaun of the Dead with Hot Fuzz... though Americanized. Woody Harrelson? Jesse Eisenberg (coming off his last great -land movie, Adventureland)? Abigail Breslin? Emma Stone? And Bill Murray as a zombie cameo? How freaking awesome is that? Come out, already!

- So, who else is hyped about Gamer? Gerard Butler, Michael C. Hall, and Ludacris in what appears to be Death Race meets Battle Royale meets Halo. A movie about real people that can be controlled by other people like video game characters to fight in real battles... To quote Michael Cera in Juno: "Wizard."

- Similarly, I also saw a trailer recently for Surrogates, a Sci-Fi Action/Thriller with Bruce Willis about android look-alikes that are controled by the people they look like from a safe environment to partake in anything the real person would be afraid to do themselves. And then somebody finds a way to kill the surrogates that also kill the people. Thrills ensue. Looks awesome.

- Pandorum. I've only seen the trailer once, but it has Ben Foster in it, and it looks like a freakin' creepy sci-fi movie like Alien or Event Horizon or something.

- The Last Airbender. No trailers yet. And only two or three real pictures. And it's M. Night Shyamalan. However, I was a huge fan of the show (full name, Avatar: The Last Airbender), and regardless of casting all three of the leads as white (while everybody else in the film is Asian of some kind... as they should be), I'm still excited to see it (it helps casting Dev Patel as Zuko). M. Night, you better do this film justice. I want to see two (good) sequels so there can be one film for each season.

- Regardless of how others feel, I'm a fan of the Saw series (if for nothing else, the brilliant continuity). And as this sixth and (supposedly) final film of the series comes out this year, along with the rumored, much-anticipated return of Cary Elwes as Dr. Gordon, I couldn't be more excited.

- 9/Nine. Two movies. I could have included District 9 and done all three together, but District 9 still hasn't won me over. I'll see it, but it hasn't reached a super-excitement level with me yet. I've been excited about the Burton-produced 9 since the first trailer came out last year. And the musical aspect along with the stunning star/Oscar power of Nine, who wouldn't be excited for it? Both have star-studded casts, actually. 9 has Elijah Wood, John C. Reilly, Jennifer Connelly, Crispin Glover, Martin Landau, and Christopher Plummer. Nine has Daniel Day-Lewis, Marion Cotillard, Penelope Cruz, Judi Dench, Nicole Kidman, Kate Hudson, Sophia Loren, and Stacy "Fergie" Ferguson... and it's directed by Oscar-nominated Rob Marshall (Chicago).

Go check out all the trailers for these films! What movies are y'all excited for?
