12.20.2003

As we continue our look at the films upcoming in 2004, it's up to SONY/COLUMBIA to present us with their goodies. With fourteen films on their roster, they are rarin' to go. The ones that I'm personally looking forward to include a little film called SPIDER-MAN 2, which some of you might've heard about already, Johnny Depp's SECRET WINDOW (shot in my hometown of Montreal...booyah!), HELLBOY by the master himself, Guillermo del Toro, RESIDENT EVIL: APOCALYPSE, which might just be a decent time (the first one was popcorn fun) as well as possibles like LITTLE BLACK BOOK (if you're a fan of Ron Livingston, raise your hand), SPANGLISH (James L. Brooks can simply do no wrong) and CHEER UP, simply because it features cheerleaders, baby...cheerleaders!! Check 'em all out below and stay tuned to our site in the New Year for the launch of our extra-special new UPCOMING MOVIE PREVIEWS section. Enjoy.
