    HAH! None of the four films for 2011 are out yet!

    • Yep, development hell has held all of those off so far!

      Men in Black 3 is in the can, due May 25, 2012 (US, I presume).

      Ghostbuster 3 is still in preproduction. It’s very ‘he’s in, he’s out’ with Bill Murray and Sigourney Weaver has said she’ll only do it if Murray’s in.

      Spider-man 4 has been superceeded by The Amazing Spider-man, due July 3, 2012 (again, presumably in the US but may be the International date, too)

      Star Trek 2 is stuck in preproduction, I believe that internal dates have been bumped as they apparently struggle to finish the script.

      So, yeah. Two will be out in 2012 and the other two probably sometime after (if at all – especially in Ghostbusters 3’s case!)
