Original Genre Movies? Say What?

If you’re one of those people who bemoans Hollywood’s lack of originality, rejoice! io9 has compiled a list of upcoming or planned science fiction, fantasy, and horror movies that are NOT prequels, sequels, or remakes. There’s actually quite a lot of them.

The ones I’m most interested in at the moment? (Always add at the moment. Life changes too quickly for hard absolutes.)

1. R.I.P.D. 
2. Ender’s Game
3. Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters
4. Odd Thomas
5. ParaNorman
6. Looper
7. Knights of Badassdom

The full list is here.

One thought on “Original Genre Movies? Say What?

  1. John Dies at the End – Have you SEEN the trailer?
    Noah – Darren Aronofsky, so yeah…
    ParaNorman – I think you first recommended this one to me.
    Hotel Transylvania – Genndy Tartovsky, animator extraordinaire!
    Wreck-It Ralph – Comedy about a videogame villain who wants to be a hero. And Bowser is in it!
    Untitled Henry Sellick Film – His next film after Coraline. YAY!
    Pacific Rim – Guillermo Del Toro does Neon Genesis Evangelion.
