Movie Wishlist #18

I thought it was about time I put together one of these lists! I have by no means watched all the movies on my last wish lists, but there are always more...

These films are released over the next few months in the US (and hopefully not long after, here!)

(This sounds like classic Universal horror meets the Underworld franchise for a reason: the source material is a graphic novel created by Kevin Grevioux, who co-wrote the story that introduced us to the vampire warrior, Selene. Aaron Eckhart plays Dr. Frankenstein's creation, who has survived into modern times due to a genetic anomaly, ans Bill Nighy plays a demon-army leader.)
