Probably the coolest movie coming next year, or in a long time, is the Rodriguez/Tarantino Grindhouse double-feature, Planet Terror, and Death Proof!
Along with the newly released posters (though everything released about Death Proof indicates the starring car is a Nova, the poster features a Camaro - which I'm sure is intentional, in a send up of drive-in movie ads kind of way, but I just dig on 67-68 Camaro's!) there's a new trailer up online:

For the uninitiated, this is Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino's send up of 70's exploitation films, and is in fact two full length movies for the price of one. Featuring Rose McGowan, Kurt Russell, Naveen Andrews (of Lost fame), and many many more.

Now, Tarantino's half, Death Proof, was to star Mickey Rourke in the title role, as a hard driving killer on wheels, but he was later replaced by Russell. Though Rourke would've been perfect in the role, I'm a huge Kurt fan, and think he'll bring a whole nother kind of cool to the thing. Can't Wait!

Another anticipated film of 07 has to be Fantastic Four 2, and USA Today just released a shot of the Silver Surfer, who is featured in the sequel.Looks pretty cool, and very true to the comics, cept for the full on eyes, but at least they are not white, and still silver... (and I don't think there's anyone who doesn't think the Surfer is cool, so if they get him right, it's a big step in the right direction)
The first real trailer is coming soon on this.
