The Big Fox 2005 Preview!


Originally Published: December 24, 2004

No doubt about it. Fox has some of the biggest, most anticipated films coming out next year. Do these names ring a bell – Star Wars: Episode 3 Revenge of the Sith, Fantastic Four, Robots, Elektra. WOW! Okay, stay calm. We do have photos, we do have storylines, we do have web links for you.

It all gets started on January 14, with a young lady named Elektra. The bad ass is back from the dead and you’d never know she was gone. (Related Story: We have an Alias preview going up RIGHT HERE, too.) Jennifer Garner’s is definitely on the rise. She has the potential to take female action heroine roles to another level (if she chooses to go that route).

The geniuses that brought Ice Age into our lives are back with Robots, and on June 10th, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie star in the action thriller Mr. and Mrs. Smith (popcorn anyone?)
