Fanboys - Seems like it can be some cheap fun. And the scene with Shatner in the trailer was hilarious :lol:

Coraline - Looked rather boring, or maybe it is just me that is getting to old.

Blood: The Last Vampire - Unable to find a trailer for this one, but I get a bad vibe by looking at the images supposedly from the movie here.

Watchmen - Maybe the movie the I am anticipating the most this year. Great comic and what I have seen so far from the trailers have me in high hopes :)

Dragonball : Evolution - Holy, did this one look like crap :shock: One I without doubt is going to pass up on.

X-Men - Wolverine - I have enjoyed the X-men movies to some degree, but this one just didn't seem to cut, might have to check it out though being a long time marvel fan :)

Star Trek XI - It's sad to see where they have taken the Star Trek franchise these days, seems to be all about pretty CGI and action and horrible scripts :cry:

Terminator Salvation - This one however seems like it can get the terminator movies up and going again after the rather horrible last movie.

Transformers : Revenge of the Fallen - Have just seen small bits from the first one, and I am probably not going to see much more from this one.

Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince - Really looking forward to watching this one. Hopefully it will be just as entertaining as the others :)

GI Joe: Rise of Cobra - Couldn't find much about this one, but it is not one I have high hopes for, nor anticipate.

Astro Boy - Not much to be seen in the teaser, but it might turn out ok.

Witchblade - This I actually have some hope for. The series that was running for just 2 seasons was great, as long as you can get through the pilot which is rather horrible. Frist season is fantastic. So I will cross my fingers and hope they can bring along some of the magic from the first season in the series to the movie.

Inkheart - Looks ok enough judging from the trailers. Might have to check this one out :)

Street Fighter : Legend of Chun-Li - Might turn out to be some cheap fun :)

STREET FIGHTER has a few Hong Kong mainstays in it, to boot: Cheng Pei-pei, Edmund Chen, Josie Ho, Robin Shou. Updated some of their bios a few days ago. ;) (now if only we could add such info to their filmographies etc. etc. etc. )
