I'm glad that Brolin has been cast as early Dwight McCarthy and that Levitt is also making an appearance. I liked Rodriguez's first adaptation but I think there was something fundamentally empty about it, not quite fulfilling the perfectly constructed metaphors and moralities of a film noir to the extent that it could have, hopefully A Dame To Kill For will expand on that. Also excited to see Marv again, I really enjoy Marv's character. And Eva Green making an appearance, I appreciate her a lot as an actress.
I'm not going to hold my breath for the new 300, I guess it knows what it has to follow suit on as a macho action movie, but I don't expect any real substance out of it and I'm probably not going to buy into it's mindless antics. Also a strange choice for the director, given his inexperience with feature length films and his lack of expertise in the action genre, might be even less fulfilling than Snyder.
I guess it's way too early to make any educated predictions on the Avatar sequel, but I was disappointed for the first given it's hype. Not to say that I didn't enjoy it, I thought it was reasonably good, but it was put on a pedestal that it didn't so much deserve on the final cut. I'm glad that Cameron didn't give in so much to the graphical implications of the film to completely disregard everything else about it though, and I do admire his integration of the CGI to bolster the film but not replace other important elements vital to it's success outside of commerce.
I guess the same goes for an Avengers sequel in regard to being too early for opinions and such, though I greatly enjoy Joss Whedon as a director and I hold no doubt that he'll create something just as brilliant with the second as he did with the first, I will be watching it should it have a smooth ride through production.
I look forward to most of these a lot, and I shall be going to the cinema for most of them on the opening week, maybe even day if nothing else is catching my eye on release week.
