UPCOMING MOVIES – January 2010 Part I

Upcoming Movies – January 2010 Part I

I haven’t done an upcoming movies list in a while so there are quite a few here, and it’ll be a two-parter. Just to clarify, this is not a list of My Eagerly Anticipated movies, just an observation of what we see coming to us in the future. (Though some of them of course I will look forward to seeing.) In no particular order, here is the Upcoming Movies – January 2010 Part I post.


—– Sex and the City 2 —–

I think that poster says it all doesn’t it? Whoever wants to see 4 wealthy, beautiful women prance around New York (and apparently Morocco as well) and deal with life altering questions like which purse with which sandals, please raise your hands. Ah, half the women in North America. I guess I’m not the target demographic…

Release Date: May 28, 2010 —– TRAILER —–

—– Robin Hood —–

Russel Crowe and Ridley Scott team up (for the fifth time) for a decidedly revisionist take on the Robin Hood legend. No green tights here. The trailer is awful in my opinion, but I think because it was badly edited. Lets hope the movie is better than what we see here…

Release Date: May 14, 2010 —– TRAILER —–

—– The Karate Kid —–

Another remake heads our way, this time of an ’80’s “classic”. Will Smith’s boy, Jaden Smith, stars, alongside Jackie Chan. Apparently the plot will be a bit different, as the filmmakers are making their own story for this one.

Release Date: June 11, 2010 —–TRAILER —–

—– Iron Man 2 —–

One of the best received movies of the last few years has its sequel, due in May. Don Cheadle replaces Terrence Howard, which should be interesting, and we are introduced to more villains. Movies with many villains tend to be harder to get right, and this one apparently has 2 major ones. We’ll see…

Release Date: May 7, 2010 —– TRAILER —–

—– Knight and Day —–

Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz star in this new action comedy. Now I’ve always more or less liked Tom Cruise (couches and religion nonetheless), but this doesn’t really look all that extraordinary. Cameron Diaz seems to me to be a death knell to any movie. Maybe we’ll be surprised, but I doubt it.

Release Date: July 2, 2010 —– TRAILER —–

—– Furry Vengence —–

Oh good Lord, spare us.

Release Date: April 2, 2010 —– TRAILER —–

—– Crazy on the Outside —–

Tim Allen’s latest has many stars that we all like and would love to see do well in a good movie. This doesn’t really look like it unfortunately. I for one would love for Kelsey Grammar to get a nice juicy part in a really good movie. He’s proven he can be awesome in a bad movie already (15 Minutes).

Release Date: January 8, 2010 —– TRAILER —–

—– Grown Ups —–

Continuing in the vein of lame looking comedies with big casts…

Release Date: June 25, 2010 —– TRAILER —–

—– Greenberg —–

Ben Stiller may not be the first name that pops into your head when you think of indie dramedy, but here it looks like he’s trying to do the “Adam Sandler in Punch Drunk Love” thing. Personally I’m intrigued. From Night at the Museum to a movie that delves into question of self-identity, purpose in life, and aging? Yes please!

Release Date: March 26, 2010 —– TRAILER —–

—– Terribly Happy —–

There’s not too much to say about this one, except that it looks interesting. If only this would get distribution like some of the crap that does get circulated.

Release Date: October 2, 2008 (in Czech Republic, not sure when we’ll ever see it) —– TRAILER —–

—– She’s Out Of My League —–

Do we need more of these? Seriously? Do we need any of these?

Release Date: March 12, 2010 —– TRAILER —–

—– The Bounty Hunter —–

Come on! We’ve seen Butler try the rom-com thing with The Ugly Truth. Yeah, that turned out well…

Release Date: March 19, 2010 —– TRAILER —–

—– Green Zone —–

It may seem like Bourne 4 (what with the same actor, director etc.), but this one is peaking my interest mildly. When a director sticks with a particular star it can be interesting (Scorcese and DeNiro/De Caprio; Christopher Nolan and Bale/Caine etc.)

Release Date: March 12, 2010 —– TRAILER —–

—– Kick-Ass —–

Kick-Ass is a spoof/loving tribute of superhero movies. It has a lot of geek cred apparently, and is based on a comic book series. It could be half decent I think. You?

Release Date: April 16, 2010 —–TRAILER —–


What do you think? Interested in any of these? Any other upcoming movies you really want to see? Leave a comment!
