One year later, George and Kathy Lutz and their children moved into the house thinking it would be their dream home. But shortly after settling in, bizarre and unexplainable events began to occur – nightmarish visions and haunting voices from an evil presence still lurking within the house. 28 days after moving in, the Lutzes abandoned the home, lucky to escape with their lives. Now, 30 years after the shocking real-life events that inspired one of the most popular horror stories of all time, return to the house that started it all: "The Amityville Horror".

Howl's Moving Castle

In the land of Ingary, such things as spells, invisible cloaks, and seven-league boots were everyday things. The Witch of the Waste was another matter. After fifty years of quiet, it was rumored that the Witch was about to terrorize the country again. So when a moving black castle, blowing dark smoke from its four thin turrets, appeared on the horizon, everyone thought it was the Witch. The castle, however, belonged to Wizard Howl, who, it was said, liked to suck the souls of young girls. The Hatter sisters--Sophie, Lettie, and Martha--and all the other girls were warned not to venture into the streets alone. But that was only the beginning. In this giant jigsaw puzzle of a fantasy, people and things are never quite what they seem. Destinies are intertwined, identities exchanged, lovers confused. The Witch has placed a spell on Howl. Does the clue to breaking it lie in a famous poem? And what will happen to Sophie Hatter when she enters Howl's castle? Diana Wynne Jones's entrancing fantasy is filled with surprises at every turn, but when the final stormy duel between the Witch and the Wizard is finished, all the pieces fall magically into place

He wants to be a normal, fourteen-year-old wizard. Unfortunately for Harry Potter, he's not normal, even by wizarding standards. And in his case, different can be deadly.

From what I heard the screenplay was finished Oct 2004 and I didn't put up the other movies because I'm only putting up SOME of the movies.. If I put up all the movies coming out I'd be here for the next 3-5 hours.. I'm just putting up movies that I think will appeal to the vast majority of people.

Oh I realize. I only mentioned those two because:

Hitchhiker's Guide = Probably has one of the largest literary cult followings in the world, and has been anticipated for something like 20 years.

Kingdom of Heaven = Has Orlando Bloom, chicks can dig it. And lots of fighting, guys can dig it. And it's by Gladiator's director. Great supporting cast, too.

The screenplay for IJ4 was done, but Lucas wasn't too happy with it, last I heard it was postponed until at least Summer 06.

King Kong

Jackson will bring his sweeping cinematic vision to the iconic story of the gigantic ape-monster captured in the wilds and brought to civilization where he meets his tragic fate. The screenplay by Jackson, Walsh and Boyens is based on the original story by Merian C. Cooper and Edgar Wallace, which became the classic 1933 RKO Radio Pictures film, directed by adventurers Cooper and Ernest B. Schoesdack. Jackson will employ the latest motion picture technology to cinematically portray the timeless tale of the beast and his beauty. He will expand on the chapters of the tale that take place in the mysterious and dangerous jungles of Skull Island, and his Kong promises to be a unique and breathtaking creation.

This makes me sad, since the only reason I saw the first movie was Asia Argento. I'll probably avoid this one all together

I hope Rush Hour 3 is going to be be better than the first one. Rush Hour 2 sucks, although Roselyn Sanchez is great in there. Speaking of Roselyn Sanchez, I am hoping to see her in Rush Hour 3.

Deuce Bigalow? Another Rob Schneider movie? I would rather watch Gigli than watch that.
