What movies are you looking forward to in 2004?

We're already a month into 2004, but I was wondering what films everyone is looking forward to this year. In previous years it's been the Lord of the Rings and Star Wars movies. This year it doesn't look like there are as many movies that fans are extremely excited about.

Some movies that look interesting or fun:
-- Kill Bill Volume II
-- Hidalgo
-- Spider-Man II
-- Troy
-- Dawn of the Dead
-- Shaolin Soccer
-- Aliens vs. Predator
-- Van Helsing
-- The Brothers Grimm
-- The Village
-- Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow

These all look interesting, but I admit some of them are likely to be turds. The only one I'm really excited to see is Kill Bill. I've heard great things about Shaolin Soccer and M. Night Shamlamadingdong hasn't let me down yet; I hope he continues his streak with The Village.

What movies are you excited for? Share links and trailers if you have any available.

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
The Life Aquatic (Wes Anderson's new film)
Passion of the Christ
I, Robot
Sky Captain

I'm especially anticipating I. Robot. I have my fears it'll be just another dumb blockbuster, but with Proyas helming I'm hoping for something truly special.

Otherwise, Kill Bill...damn I'm jsut sick of waiting, I want to see this so badly.

It looks like there could be a lot of great movies this year, but you never know. there seem to be a lot good ideas on surface which could turn out to be total crap. The one that gets me very excited is Oliver Stone's Alexander. Other honorable mentions go to Passion, Troy, Kill Bill Vol. 2, Secret Window.

"Life Aquatic" most definitely, 'cause I'm a Wes Anderson geek.

Also, "Van Helsing" and that new Tom Hanks movie where he's a grifter.

The Passion of the Christ has been on my must-see list for a very long time, so I'd have to rank that right up at the top. Also looking forward to:

Hellboy
Spiderman 2
Van Helsing

King Arthur
Life Aquatic
Jersey Girl
Starsky & Hutch
Club Dread
The Passion of the Christ
Man on Fire
Terminal
Welcome To Mooseport

And a few that might be fun...

Dawn of the Dead
The Village
The Punisher
