When Johnny Depp appeared at a Disney fan convention in the fall of 2009 to hype the announcement of Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, it looked like fair weather-sailing for the fourth movie in the blockbuster franchise. But as the cover story of this week’s special 2011 preview issue reveals, the subsequent journey was anything but squall-free. Indeed, for a while, it looked like Depp himself was about to jump ship. “Things became a little creaky,” admits the superstar. The Jerry Bruckheimer-produced operation also had to deal with bad weather of a literal stripe while shooting in Hawaii and the pregnancy of franchise newcomer Penélope Cruz, though Depp says the blooming actress could hardly have been more game. “It was funny to see a pregnant woman f—ing sword-fighting,” he laughs.

It’s fair to say that 2011 is close to bursting with highly anticipated movies — for one thing, Steven Spielberg has two movies coming out in practically the same week next December. But when I asked you, PopWatchers, which films in 2011 you simply cannot wait to see, these seven titles rose above all the rest: Scream 4, Thor, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, The Hangover Part II, Green Lantern, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 2, and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 1. But which of these semi-finalists will emerge as your most anticipated film of 2011? Well, that’s up to you; vote below, and then sound off on your choice in the comments: READ FULL STORY
'Pirates 4'? 'Breaking Dawn Part 1'? The final 'Harry Potter'? What 2011 movies can you not wait to see?
Tron: Legacy, How Do You Know?, True Grit, Little Fockers, etc. But 2011 is nigh upon us, and we here at PopWatch central could not help but notice how jam-packed the impending year truly is with highly anticipated movies of all stripes. To wit: In the spring, we’ve got the Johnny Depp animated film Rango (March 4), sci-fi action flicks I Am Number Four (Feb. 18) and Battle: Los Angeles (March 11), and Zack Snyder’s geektastic fantasia Sucker Punch (March 25). The summer promises the flying fists of Kung Fu Panda: The Kaboom of Doom (May 26), the mysterious J.J. Abrams film Super 8 (June 10), the plastered doofuses of The Hangover 2 (May 26), more of Michael Bay’s stampeding robots in Transformers: Dark of the Moon (July 1), and a cavalcade of comic-book movies: Thor (May 6), Captain America (July 22), X-Men: First Class (June 3), Green Lantern (June 17). And a full year from now, we’ll be talking about fall and holiday movies like Steven Spielberg’s The Adventures of Tintin: Secret of the Unicorn (Dec. 23) and Steven Spielberg’s War Horse (Dec. 28), or Tom Cruise in Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol (Dec. 16) and Daniel Craig in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (Dec. 21).Yeah yeah yeah, 2010 isn’t quite over, and there are still several films high on our want-to-see list —
Shoosh. That is a lot of movies, PopWatchers, and that’s barely scratching the surface. For one thing, I haven’t even mentioned the return of Capt. Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides (May 20), the beginning of the end of The Twilight Saga with Breaking Dawn Part 1 (Nov. 18), and the end of the end of the Harry Potter saga with The Deathly Hallows — Part 2 (July 15). So many movies! But which, dear readers, can you simply not wait a single second more to see?
In an oddly animated interview with MTV News, Kristen Stewart talked about the final installment of the Twilight series with something approaching enthusiasm. Having just returned from Breaking Dawn read-throughs in Baton Rouge with Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner, Stewart reported that “it’s done, it’s locked… basically we know exactly how the book is going to find itself, and now we know all the lines and know what scenes have been pulled.” No word yet on whether the birthing scene of baby vampire chewing her cutesie-schmoopsie way out of Bella’s womb has been tweaked or cut.
