Upcoming Awesomeness

Before The Darjeeling Limited, I was treated to seeing some fantastic previews of movies I was unaware of that were coming out. Let's take a look:

1. Juno- Directed by Jason Reitman, who treated us to Thank You For Smoking in 2006, Juno looks like an excellent follow-up. The movie looks like Knocked Up but involving teenage pregnancy. Quirky characters, starring the likes of Jason Bateman, Michael Cera, Rainn Wilson and soon to be a big star Ellen Page (remember her as Kitty Pride in X-Men 3), this is sure to be at the very least entertaining and heartwarming.

2. Funny Games- This looks awesome, yet doing some online research, this film is a remake... from 1997... and its the same director. This makes me seem a bit interested about if this is going to be any good. The trailer, however, makes it out to look like a cross between a Bret Easton Ellis novel and The Ref minus Christmas time. Tim Roth and Naomi Watts are sure to bring the goods.

3. Sleuth- Jude Law + Michael Caine = Yes. Another remake helmed by Kenneth Brahnah, this clearly will be good with the acting talents this movie has. An interesting plot and definitely great direction is a recipe for success.

Also frothing over the wait for There Will Be Blood & No Country For Old Men.

You should watch "Hard Candy" - Ellen Page is quite the actress.
