Movie News

One of my favourite parts of the Apple iTunes store is the Movie Trailers section, which brings the old Apple Trailers site.

Amongst the upcoming films that look interesting are Batman Begins, a relaunch of the Batman franchise with the story of his origins, and a remake of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory starring Johnny Depp who after his excellent performance in Finding Neverland looks excellent in this.

Worries, generally along the lines of how bad could they be are The HitchHikers Guide to the Galaxy which I was looking forward to before seeing the trailer, and The Pink Panther which looks worryingly dire. (For better Pink Panther bits take look at The Life and Death of Peter Sellers or better still, get the original!)

In the category of not sure, is firmly placed the Steven Speilberg and Tom Cruise version of The War of the Worlds. Word had it that this was going to be true to the original book, although it has now been transposed from 19th century England to 21st century USA, although from the voice over on the trailer they do seem to be trying to keep to the spirit of the original in some ways.

Other upcoming films that I’m looking forward to either with expectation, or trepidation are Serenity, which I have blogged about in the past, and of course this is the year that the final Star Wars film arrives.
