2007’s music and movie scene will be an exciting ride of reuniting artists, new albums and long-awaited sequels.
Actually, the word of the year in the film world is “threequel.”
Perhaps one of the biggest films of the year will be Spiderman 3, which will continue the story of Peter Parker and will feature the emergence of comic book legend, Venom.
Following the huge box office success of the first two Pirates films, Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley will set sail and reprise their roles for Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End.
George Clooney, Brad Pitt and Matt Damon will reunite and reassemble the gang for another heist in Oceans’ 13. This time around, they will be joined by the legendary Al Pacino.
Also look for films with Tom Hanks, Julia Roberts, Adam Sandler, Will Ferrell and a host of other actors and actresses.
As fast-moving as the film industry, the music world will also be putting out things to do in the upcoming year.
For those tired of songs like “How to Save a Life” or “London Bridge,” 2007 will bring in some new music from familiar faces.
Radiohead has been in the studio recording their seventh studio album. The band has not released a CD since 2003’s Hail to the Thief, but they should not disappoint.
Other bands releasing albums this year will be Wilco, Bright Eyes, Sigur Ros and The Arcade Fire. Also look for albums later this year from perrenial favorites U2, Dave Matthews Band and Coldplay.
The rap scene will feature new albums from Eminem, 50 Cent and Kanye West. West hopes to follow the success of his first two records, The College Dropout and Late Registration, with a new album entitled Graduation.
Also, several older bands, including The Police, Rage Against the Machine and The Smashing Pumpkins have made plans to reunite.
So if 2007 seemed to start off slow, don’t worry, because there will be plenty of new music and movies to guide you through the new year.
