My Top 30 Most Anticipated Films of 2011: Part 1

...But probably will never see what with living in the country and being a penniless college student and all.
Here are some of the films coming up in 2011 that sound absolutely incredible and wish I could see. 
From A-B...

127 hours
UK release date: 7th January 2011
Genre: Adventure, drama, biography
IMDb summary: A mountain climber becomes trapped under a boulder while canyoneering alone near Moab, Utah and resorts to desperate measures in order to survive.

It’s been out a week or so now here in the UK, but it looks like theres little chance I will get to go see Danny Boyle’s new film. Brilliant reviews, stunning Utah location shots, great acting from James Franco and ridiculously good directing from the Boyle himself - along with that scene. 
I’m sure it is one excellent film. 

The Adjustment Bureau
UK release date: 4th March 2011
Genre: Romance, Thriller

IMDb summary: The affair between a politician and a ballerina is affected by mysterious forces keeping the lovers apart.
With Matt Damon and Emily Blunt as the unlikely couple who fall in love, you know it won’t be any ordinary romance film. Boasting such incredible acting talents, with this interesting twist - The Adjustment Bureau looks set to be a gripping, thrill-ride of a film. And WOW that trailer is the best I've seen in a long while! I simply can’t wait!

Bel Ami
UK release date: 12th May 2011 
Genre: Romance, Period, Drama 

IMDb summary: A chronicle of a young man's rise to power in Paris via his manipulation of the city's most influential and wealthy women.

Here's Robert Pattinson talking about the movie...
Still in post-production and trying to find distributors, there is yet to be a released date for Bel Ami, but with stars like Robert Pattinson, Uma Thurman, Kristen Scott Thomas and Christina Ricci, it is sure to pull in the crowds. The film is based on a short story by Guy de Maupassant published in 1885, which seems vaguely similar to Dorian Gray, but infinitely better. Shot in Italy and the UK, anyone who has seen any on-location pictures will know that it looks like a pretty well made film. Whether it’s a good film or not I’m sure the thousands of teenage girls flocking to see R-Patz will help make Bel Ami a success. 

Black Swan
UK release date: 21st January 2011
Genre: Psychological Thriller
IMDb summary: A ballet dancer wins the lead in "Swan Lake" and is perfect for the role of the delicate White Swan, but slowly loses her mind as she becomes more and more like the evil twin sister of the White Swan, the Black Swan.

There isn’t much I can say about this film other than that it is going to win Oscars. Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis play the rivaling girls and from the clips I’ve seen do a remarkable job. The Critics are in love with it and from what I have seen so do the audience. Currently nominated for 4 Golden Globes, (including Best Motion Picture) and with over 18 other nominations, it looks like it will do well at the Oscars this year. I am determined to see this as soon as possible. 
That trailer though is on the creepiest things I’ve ever seen...

Blue Valentine
UK release date: 14th January 2011
Genre: Drama, Romance
IMDb summary: The film centres on a contemporary married couple, charting their evolution over a span of years by cross-cutting between time periods.

This is a very interesting film. What comes across through the trailer is that it’s very touching and very, very real. Which is absolutely why it has gone down so well. It’s rare for a film to show the unglamorous side of love, alongside the initial magnetism of romance. There have been censorship issues in the US, but it's managed to pull in the nominations for 9 awards, including 2 Golden Globes for the incredible acting by Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams.
