The ones I’m most excited about:
28 Weeks Later
Release Date: May 11, 2007
Director: Juan Carlos Fresnadillo
Synopsis: Britain has been emptied. There’s nobody there. It’s completely dead. And six months later the Americans arrive to reboot it back up again. But, of course, something goes wrong.
The Hype: The sequel to the 2003 zombie film 28 Days Later featuring a new director and new screenwriter.
Release Date: March 16, 2007
Director: Zack Snyder
Starring: Gerard Butler, Lena Headey, David Wenham, Dominic West, Vincent Regan
Synopsis: Based on Frank Miller’s graphic novel, “300″ concerns the 480 B.C. Battle of Thermopylae, where the King of Sparta led his army against the advancing Persians.
The Hype: Thanks to a special preview shown at Comic-Con, everyone is abuzz about just how intense and epic this ancient Spartan adventure will be, complete with comic-book stylized imagery.
The Bourne Ultimatum
Release Date: August 3, 2007
Director: Paul Greengrass
Starring: Matt Damon, Joan Allen
Synopsis: Bourne races to discover the final mysteries of his past while a government agent tries to track him down after a shootout in Moscow.
The Hype: The non-stop Jason Bourne adventure finally reaches a conclusion in what may yet be the best of the Bourne films.
Sin City 2
Release Date: 2007
Director: Robert Rodriguez / Frank Miller
Starring: Brittany Murphy, Mickey Rourke, Michael Clarke Duncan
Synopsis: In the dark bowels of Sin City, Dwight plans to have his vengeance against the woman who betrayed him, Ava Lord, while Nancy plans her vengeance against the Roarks for Hartigan’s death.
The Hype: The first Sin City was a smashing success for fans of brutal action and comic books, and they’ve been cheering for another one since it’s release day. Their dreams have come true and the Sin City excellence from Frank Miller will continue on in a second action-packed installment.
And the one that really made my day…
The Golden Compass
