Fantasy Movies Coming Soon
|MAR||Wrath of Titans:|
Can they make-up for the poorly made 2010 Clash of the Titans 3D with a sequel?
|MAR||•John Carter of Mars: How will Disney treat Edgar Rice Burrough’s (Tarzan author) sci-fi fantasy?|
|MAY||Sinbad: The Fifth Voyage: Patrick Stewart’s narration may give this some street cred.|
|JUNE||Snow White and the Huntsman:|
Thor actor Chris Hemsworth teams up with the Vampire Diaries chick (Kristen Stewart) for some epic action. Should be an interesting comparison versus Julia Roberts’ rendition of Snow White in Mirror Mirror due out this year as well.
|JUNE||•Pixar and Disney's Brave (2012) - Disney tries out Heroic Fantasy!|
|AUG||Silent Hill Revelation (sequel): Okay, not 100% Sword and Sorcery, but it is a mix of Horror-Fantasy and Pyramid Head does have a large sword and Michael Basset (who just delivered Solomon Kane) is leading the effort.|
|DEC||•The Hobbit (2012); stymied by a writer's strike and a legal tangle with the Tolkien estate, the prequel(s) to the Lord of the Rings trilogy promises to be great.|
Unknown Release Dates
|A Fire and Ice live action movie being produced in 2012 (and a possible Death Dealer after that?!~). IGN reports this remake of the rotoscoped classic in which Frank Frazetta and Ralph Bakshi teamed up. Bill Frazetta confirms the film's progress in this video from Comic Con 2011:
|Release overseas in 2011.|
Not available in US yet.
Solomon Kane , a well received depiction of R.E.Howard's doomed, religious hero. Click here to request it to come state-side by "Demanding" it.
|•Castlevania: Based on Konami's popular vampire games; this movie has been bounced around since before 2009.|
|•Bran Mak Morn|
|At the Mountains of Madness: More weird horror/fantasy than Sword and Sorcery, but it is Lovecraft...and Guillermo del Toro was involved.|
|Narnia IV: The Magician's Nephew|
And after that… Narnia V: The Silver Chair is planned.
