6. The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader
I loved the first movie, but was disappointed by the second. Still, the trailer has asked me to "return to hope," and considering this adaptation has much better source material, I am feeling pretty hopeful.
The shift away from 2D animation (and the awful advertising campaign) had me wanting to dislike Tangled, but the more I see of the film—full of adventure, hair, and gorgeous landscapes—the more excited I'm getting. And I haven't even heard the music yet!
Cool, creepy, and claustrophobic. The sheer ambition of having an entire movie take place underground already had me intrigued, but the great reviews and festival buzz were the last nail in the coffin for me. I'm there.
3. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1
This would probably top the list if Order of the Phoenix and Half Blood Prince hadn't fallen so flat for me. Thankfully, I don't see how any director—even David "I like all my movies to be grayish-blue and slow" Yates—could drag down the mile-a-minute action of the seventh Harry Potter novel.
2. TRON: Legacy
LOOKS SO FREAKING COOL, and I wouldn't even consider myself a huge fanboy. Maybe it's the sleek video game premise, but for some reason, I'm finding myself thinking that TRON might look amazing in 3D. (Blasphemy, I know.)
