    1b:I haven't watched a movie for ages'


    2a:I am fine so far/up to now and I will get work tomorrow.
    2b:I am fine till date and I will be alloted work tomorrow.

    In 2b, the phrase you want is 'to date', but 'to date' wouldn't do in this context. The T doubles in the past simple of 'allot', and 'allot' sounds a bit odd there anyway - unless the person is in a position of very high authority (e.g. your boss's boss).
