Holiday trailers – Tron: Legacy, Narnia 3, and HP:TDH

The time is shortly upon us.

The wait is nearly over.

Let the glorious holiday IMAX season BEGIN!!!

Wait… let me get my oxygen…

Okay. I feel better now. Got a little giddy there for a second.

There are three movies left in 2010 that I really want to see in theaters. Back in March I reviewed the trailers for a bunch of 2010 films and picked a list of about 12 movies I was shooting to see in the theater. So far I got to see 2 of them in the cinema, and 2 more on DVD. Not a great track record – but in hindsight I think I was overly optimistic for some of those picks, and I’m glad I didn’t spend the money to get out to see them.

But the three that are yet to be released all look very good.

The first on the docket is Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Pt 1.

The theater near me is building an IMAX right now, and the first movie to play there will be Harry Potter. I was a bit disappointed in the last HP offering, but I think it’s pretty safe to say that this is going to be one I see in the theater. Whether I see it in IMAX is up in the air, but I’m definitely seeing it.

The second to be released is The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.

Yep, I’m in for this one, too. Definitely not in IMAX, but definitely going. Just need to figure out the babysitting. December 10th is a tough time of year for that, both in cost and availability.

And then, finally, is the movie I’ve waited 25 years to see – Tron: Legacy.

The closer we get to the release of this movie, the more nervous I am that it won’t be good. I really, really want this to be mind-blowingly good. I’ve purposely tried to avoid the marketing for this one lately, to attempt to keep my expectations in check. Still, I will be seeing it of course. In IMAX, and in all likelihood in 3D. The timing of the release on December 17th is even more of a problem for me logistically than Narnia. I’m not sure I’ll be able to see it until the last week of the year, but I’m going to really try to get it in earlier. The only good thing is that I might be busy enough that I won’t catch the critics’ reviews.

So, are  you in or out? IMAX or no-IMAX? 3D or 2D? What other movies are on your must see list for the rest of this year?

  • I will not be going to any in 3D, its too much money for too little improvement (if any). I will only go to IMAX if you are planning a trip but I prefer regular 2D theaters with a good loud sound system. Tron is the only one I will see in the theater.

    I’m with you on the 3D thing. But I’m not sure I can pass up Tron in 3D, especially if I’m already ponying up for IMAX. Too much potential for awesome. It is a risk, though. And I don’t think the others are up to the task. Still, I gotta check the prices at the new IMAX they’re opening in my favorite independent theater here.

    Even if they get Harry Potter 7 Pt 2 into 3D in time, I’m sticking with 2D, and probably standard size, for that.

    I do think it was worth the 3D trip for Avatar. I’m willing to consider one movie a year in 3D. Tron’s the winner this year.
