upcoming 2011 film releases

"let's look ahead to what's on the menu for this year: four adaptations of comic books. one prequel to an adaptation of a comic book. one sequel to a sequel to a movie based on a toy. one sequel to a sequel to a sequel to a movie based on an amusement park ride. one prequel to a remake. two sequels to cartoons. one sequel to a comedy. an adaptation of a children's book. an adaptation of a saturday morning cartoon. two sequels with a 4 in the title. two sequels with a 5 in the title. one sequel, that if it were inclined to use numbers, would have to have a 7 1/2 in the title."
