Hollywood 2011

2011 beckons! The New Year is upon us and brings with it a new slate of films that Hollywood plans to unleash upon us. If we are to be willing victims to Hollywood’s need of mass-producing movies and numbing us with their huge marketing machinery, why not take a crash-course on what’s to come our way. Superheroes, aliens, robots, monsters, pirates, secret agents, serial killers, talking cars and even a big fat talking fighting awesome panda are part of the mix. So fear not the unknown of the New Year. Embrace it with the knowledge of the movies it brings us! (Or just print out this list for regular reference).

Note: All release dates mentioned are for the USA, for the sake of some order. They are also, owing to their organic nature, subject to change.
