11 Future Cinema Trips You Must Make

Allow me to introduce your cinema-going calender for the next 29 months...

August 2010
Scott Pilgrim vs the World

Based on the acclaimed comic by Bryan Lee O'Malley, Scott Pilgrim is a pretty normal guy - "23 years old, living in the big city with his gay roommate, just trying to get by in this crazy world. He's in a band. He's lazy. He likes video games" - who has to fight, sorry defeat, his new girl's 7 evil ex-boyfriends(!)... with epic consequences. If you're not convinced, check out the trailer here.

Release date:  August 2010
Michael Cera as Scott Pilgrim
Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Ramona V. Flowers
Kieran Culkin as Wallace Wells
Chris Evans as Lucas Lee
May 2011
A must-see for Marvel fans, Thor contributes to the ever growing Marvel Studios movie universe. Odin, the ruler of the Norse gods of Asgard, exciles his arrogant son, Thor - the god of thunder- , to Earth to teach him humility and the meaning of heroism. Thor must battle his evil brother, Loki - the god of mischief - and stop Ragnarok from destroying the world.

Release date: May 2011
Chris Hemsworth as Thor
Natalie Portman as Jane Foster
Anthony Hopkins as Odin
Kat Dennings as Darcy
June 2011
Green Lantern
The Green Lantern promises to be a cosmic special-effects bonanza. Hal Jordan is a fearless test pilot who is given a powerful ring by a dying alien, whose spaceship crashed on Earth. The alien, Abin Sur, used his ring to seek out an individual who was "utterly honest and born without fear" to take his place as a member of the intergalactic Green Lantern Corps. One of the most powerful weapons in the universe, the ring enables the wearer to fly and create solid objects at will.

Release date: June 2011
Ryan Reynolds as Hal Jordan / Green Lantern
Blake Lively as Carol Ferris
Peter Sarsgaard as Hector Hammond
Mark Strong as Sinestro

June 2011
X-Men: First Class
Directed by Matthew Vaugh, the man who brought Kick-Ass to the screen and bursting with young British talent, X-Men First Class has the potential to be a fantastic relaunch to the X-Men universe after a crappy X-Men 3 and a pretty mediocre Wolverine. Or it could just slot nicely into the existing continuity. X-Men First Class is likely to be set somewhere in the 15 years between the end of Wolverine and the beginning of X-Men and will see a young Charles Xavier enrolling his first teenage mutants into his School for Gifted Youngsters. Expect wit, fun and action. 
Release date:  June 2011
James McAvoy as Professor Charles Xavier
Michael Fassbender as Erik Lehnsherr / Magneto
Alice Eve as Emma Frost

July 2011
Captain America: The First Avenger
Following closely on Thor's heels, Captain America launches onto screens as the ultimate all-America hero. During WWII, the sickly Steve Rogers takes part in an experimental super-soldier programme and becomes Captain America. Weary of the impact on the national morale if Captain America were to die in action, his superiors dress him up in the American flag and send him on the USO circuit instead. But soon they'll realise just how much they need The First Avenger.

Release date: July 2011
Chris Evans as Steve Rogers / Captain America
Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury
Hugo Weaving as Johann Schmidt / The Red Skull
Tommy Lee Jones as Gen. Chester Phillips

May 2012
The Avengers
This is the big one for Marvel Studios; the ultimate team-up that they've been working towards since 2008. A threat so great that the Earth's Mightiest Heroes don't stand a chance alone but together, the Hulk, Iron Man, Thor and Captain America assemble as the greatest super team ever.

Release date: May 2012
Chris Evans as Steve Rogers / Captain America
Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark / Iron Man
Chris Hemsworth as Thor

Summer 2012
Iron Man 3
Iron Man was cool, Iron Man 2 was bad-ass. How could you not go to see Iron Man 3?

Release date: 2012
Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark
Don Cheadle as Lt. Col. James 'Rhodey' Rhodes / War Machine
Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury
Gwyneth Paltrow as Pepper Potts

July 2012
Batman 3
Christopher Nolan returns to the helm with Christian Bale reprising the role of Batman. The Dark Knight is widely regarded as one of the best comic book movie films ever made and is certainly one of the highest grossing. If Batman Begins represented fear and Dark Knight represented hope, what will the third installment represent and how can any villain follow Heath Ledger's portayal of the Joker?

Release date: July 2012
Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne / Batman
Gary Oldman as Jim Gordon
Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox
Michael Caine as Alfred Pennyworth

July 2012
After the faultering of Spider-Man 3 and some hard lessons learnt, Fox is rebooting the Spider-Man franchise with young Brit, Andy Garfield, as the lead and Marc Webb directing. They're said to be taking the character back to high school and completely refreshing the whole thing. It could go either way but it's a much better idea than continuing with the downward spiral of the previous three.

Release date:  July 2012
Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker / Spider-Man

December 2012
Little is yet known about the production other than these very cool facts:
It's being overseen by Christopher Nolan, it's being written by Jonathan Nolan and David Goyer and it's full 3D. There will be no excuse for not going to see what the Dark Knight director and co can do to Superman.

Release date: Christmas 2012
No cast confirmed
