The Hobbit outranks all the others combined. Why even bother having anything else on the list?? ;-) <><

I don't know, Pacific Rim looks like it could be really cool, while I'm also excited for Iron Man 3, Elysium, ParaNorman, Man of Steel, and Frankenweenie (I know Burton has gotten a lot of ill will after Dark Shadows and Alice in Wonderland, but Frankenweenie seems to be one of those smaller passion projects for Burton, sort of like Ed Wood or Edward Scissorhands).

Won't deny though that Hobbit is easily my most anticipated out of all of these.

Frankenweenie is a movie he has all ready made, and it was a small passion project when he first made it not a million dollar prodcution like it is now. He is a hack. Damn it a HACK!

I'm sorry that's not fair. I did actually really enjoy the Original Frankenweenie as a kid.

I gotta disagree, i'm looking more forward to "Iron Man 3", "Django Unchained" , "Man Of Steel"& "Pacific Rim", but to each his own.

The Pacific Rim poster looks baad aass. Also, I think they showed some Robocop material, including the new "Ed" which is quite a bit larger. You can go to omnicorp dot com to see that. Maybe it's just the way it's worded, but a joint Q&A with Burton and Raimi sounds awesome. Yes, I'm still looking forward to both their films, because I'm not fickle like so many willing to jump their ships. Also excited about Tartakovsky's return to the big screen. "Samurai Jack" is one of the greatest cartoons ever made, and "Power Puff Girls Movie" is a goddamn masterpiece of Mojojovion proportion.

This seems to cover all the bases, except "Gravity", "Cloud Atlas", Aronofsky's "Noah", "RIPD", and "Ender's Game".

Damn--Tarantino, Jackson, Burton and Raimi will all be there? And maybe Del Toro? At MY local comic-con all we got was Ferrigno, Burt Ward and the "fourth" Ghostbuster.

Django Unchained
The Pacific
The Hobbit
and heck, Supman, Man of Steel.

These are highly anticipated for me. The rest seems to have all ready been run into the ground or is a remake-sequel that I have little interest int.

"Elysium" is the follow up from the director of "District 9". I don't know if you liked that one, but it's at least worth keeping an eye on.

Elysium is my most anticipated film for next year. It and the dark knight rises were the only two films to receive a standing ovation at the pre-screenings. Also I read that out of 40 people a little more than 3/4 gave it 5/5.

All I heard about it was "Matt Damon in SCI FI!" so I thought...Meh...Last Matt Damon in Sci Fi I saw was "The The Adjustment Bureau" which was Fine. I actually did like it, nothing to own but sure it was fun. Liked the Cast.

Neil Blomkamp is directing Elysium you say! District 9 is one of my all time favorite films. My Handle on Spill.com is Disctrict 9 Customer Service! I NEED TO SEE ELYSIUM. Thanks for looking out J!

What, no mention of the DREDD screening? Word-of-mouth on this film has been amazing. Being a motion picture adaptation of a comic, I'd think you guys would be all over it. I thought this was a movie NEWS site. Way to be on-the-ball RT.
