    Is there any word on whether or not “Frank or Francis” will get a 2012 release, or will we be stuck waiting until 2013? As much as I respect Kaufman and anticipate his next movie, December might be too much for me to handle if The Master, Django Unchained and Frank or Francis all get released at once.

    • Last that I heard it is not going to be ready until 2013. But I know which film is going to top my list next year.

  • Dylan Cuellar

    The Ghost Writer, in my opinion, is amazing and one of Roman Polanski’s best. Good suggestion and one of my top ten best of it’s respected year.

    FYI Alex, George Clooney isn’t the astronaut stuck in space, that’s Sandra Bullock. Geoge Clooney is a guy on Earth in NASA guiding her or something.

    Just throwing it out there because I was really excited for this movie but then when I heard that Sandra Bullock was cast as the lead instead of the other women in contention (among them, Natalie Portman and Marion Cotillard), my anticipation for this movie dropped by half. I’ll probably still watch it though since I still love Cuaron and Clooney.

    And I must admit, 2012 is looking like a great year in movies. Twilight is ending (hopefully). all those blockbusters are coming out (Really excited for The Hobbit and Prometheus, don’t really care for The Avengers or Dark Knight Rises since I didn’t like the previous films in the series and from what I’ve seen so far I’ve yet to be REALLY impressed by both movies).

    I’m definitely catching Les Miz, The Great Gatsby, the re-releases of Finding Nemo and Titanic (I’ll be watching them in 3D),. And I’d add The Master to my list if I knew for sure that it really was coming out this year.

    And there was some other stuff on both of your lists that I’d never heard of but now I have my eye on, like The Grandmasters. Should be fun.

      Oh, and another one that I’m just going to throw out there cause I know it’ll be good fun, total Recall.
      When I first heard of the remake, I figured I could care. But the cast actually intrigues me. Bryan Cranston is the villain and Bill Nighy is Kuato. How cool is that!

      • In college some of my friends made a movie called ‘Total Recall: Recalled’ where they re-enacted what they could remember about ‘Total Recall’ even though they had only seen it once 3 years beforehand. It was brilliant.

      • Jose

        Do you still have it?

        Post it on youtube!

      • Unfortunately, no. I believe our college has an archived copy, so I should reach out to them about it.

        Please do :)
