What we want to see:
- Tom Hanks play four characters in the amazing/audacious “Cloud Atlas.”
- If Ben Affleck can ably direct a movie that isn’t set in Boston.
- Tyler Perry become Alex Cross.
- If Taken needs a sequel.
We link to each movie’s IMDb page for posters, trailers and much more information.
