Looking forward to Hellboy II. Really enjoyed the first one, and am glad that it'll come out on HD DVD. The trailer for Hellboy II looks gorgeous. Love the colors.

I hope The Incredible Hulk turns out well. Can't say I enjoyed Ang Lee's version at all.

Supposedly they are starting from scratch, from what I have heard, as if the first one was not made. I liked the first one, but I can understand that it probably does not have the right elements to appeal to comic book fans.

I am also looking forward to the latest installment in the Mummy series - I also wish the continued the Scorpion King saga because it was left in an incomplete state. Mamma Mia! should be fun too.

That's the only movie on that list that even remotely interests me... Although I'm still pissed Rachael Weisz is not returning...

Wow this is a dry year for Universal.

I'm really unimpressed. I look forward to Hellboy 2, and I might see Mummy 3. However, the fact Rob Cohen is directing Mummy 3, makes bringing a barf bag necessary.

It looks like Warner is again the best studio this year...

HP6 and The Dark Knight...who can top that?

Yeah it does look a bit dry but no doubt Mama Mia will draw some lady interest to HD-DVD

I thought Cloverfield was Universal... could be paramount I guess...

Are there any sites that lists back catalogue by studio?

The Mummy, and maybe Death Race for me. Not much there really.
