I'm hoping but not counting on Ninja Turtles to kick ass.

Prometheus looks awesome.

Anchorman 2 could actually be pretty great if they keep the same tone.

Eddie Murphy needs to quit acting fifteen years ago.

Excited to see what Snyder does with Superman.

Gaspar Noe + Refn = 3 gods.

CarouselBoy 04/01/12 12:05 PM

I wonder what the difference would be between the ratings for Prometheus

Cody Nelson 04/01/12 12:08 PM

Veep is going to be the best show of 2012.

randys950 04/01/12 12:12 PM

I'm excited for the turtles movie. in the original cartoon series they didn't act very much like teenagers anyway

Spencer Control 04/01/12 12:37 PM

A television adaptation of Fargo might be amazing.

theintention 04/01/12 12:38 PM

I am far too excited for Game of Thrones tonight.

I remember hearing rumors way back when of the Anchorman sequel being set years later in the 80s rather than the 70s, which could be awesome.

I also remember the rumors that it would be the story of Ron Burgundy in present day being wicked old, and then the rumor that it might be about Ron getting a job as on-field reporter from Vietnam. It's been so long that these ideas are probably dead, but it will be gold no matter what.

Ninja Turtles....

i have such a bad feeling about this movie. but shit, i hope i end up eating my words.

emoishardcore 04/01/12 01:03 PM

the best part of the Hunger Games was getting to watch the new Prometheus trailer in HD on the big screen.

No lies.

Jake Gyllenhaal 04/01/12 01:22 PM

Is Prometheus suppose to be a prequel to Alien?

Holly HoX! 04/01/12 02:40 PM

Fuck Michael Bay
