Prometheus was originally supposed to be a prequel to Alien/Aliens but has undergone delays and reworkings so it comes before Alien in time but is not directly part of the same series.

Set in the late 21st century, the story centers on the crew of the spaceship Prometheus as they follow a star map discovered among the remnants of several ancient Earth civilizations. Led to a distant alien world and an advanced alien civilization, the crew seek out the origins of humanity, but instead discover a threat that could lead to the extinction of the human race.


Snow White and the Huntsman is a re-telling of Snow White with Kristen Stewart as Snow White (I don't like her at all) and Charlize Theron as the evil queen (I adore CT). Saw previews and it looks like it could be good.

Perfect Family has Kathleen Turner as a devoutly Catholic mother who is nominated as her parish's mother of the year or some such award, when the reality is that her family is of course not perfect and the mother refuses to accept that reality. Mostly I want to see it for Kathleen Turner. Brave is Pixar (to be released by Disney), the story of a young Scottish girl who defies custom, is a good archer ( a theme, it seems for female heroines) and there's a witch, a curse, etc. I may skip it but usually really like Pixar films.

Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is about a group of older people who are looking to hedge their retirement by retiring to India only the hotel they plan to live in is not as well appointed or established as they are led to believe. Lots of great older actors: Judi Dench, Maggie Smith and a bunch of others. That one I really want to see but expect to not be able to see it until it comes out on DVD. Mostly only the big box office films make it to my town.

Rock of Ages is probably the one I am least likely to go see, but may, depending on reviews, time, etc. From the Broadway Musical, here's the wiki entry:

Rock of Ages is a rock/jukebox musical, with a book by Chris D'Arienzo, built around classic rock hits from the 1980s, especially from the famous glam metal bands of the decade. The musical features songs from Styx, Journey, Bon Jovi, Pat Benatar, Twisted Sister, Steve Perry, Poison and Europe, among other well-known rock bands.[1] It is directed by Kristin Hanggi and choreographed by Kelly Devine with music supervision, arrangements, and orchestrations by Ethan Popp and David Gibbs. The show is noted for being more lighthearted and comedic than other shows on Broadway. During performance, the performers frequently break the "fourth wall", directly addressing the audience and seemingly forgetting (or perhaps reminding the audience) that they are actors in a musical.
On the plus side, it's got Alec Baldwin, Mary J Blige, Paul Giamatti and Catherine Zeta Jones. On the downside: Russel Brand and Tom Cruise.
