I will readily admit to enjoying the Jackass movies. That said, I hate the bad grandpa stuff, so that is very disappointing to me.

This.

Also pretty sure those rumors about the Vision could be true too now.

I was really impressed with Fincher's version of Dragon Tattoo, so I do hope a proper follow is made.

Two of my friends went to comic con and said that Vin Diesel pretty much confirmed that he was going to be cast as vision during the Riddick panel.

I'm stoked on the possibility of a District 10. District 9 is one of my favorite recent sci-fi films and Elysium looks absolutely fantastic. I'm on board for anything new from Blomkamp.

Also a Batman/Superman film could be fucking huge if Zack Snyder pulls it off.

An And Man movie is in the works, so I'll bet this will set up to that.

Yeah... wondering how bad this could potentially be. Unless they take it to the super extreme, like Borat, but in real life.

That said, I love Jackass, so I'm gonna watch it

Don't know what A Most Violent Year is about, but that is a stellar cast.
The Walking Dead looks insane- was hoping for a scene with The Governor though, even if he seems to be the one messing with everything....
Also, very stoked for the new Avengers.

I feel like the world doesn't need Jackass anymore. Shit on Youtube does it better anyway.
