UPCOMING MOVIES – January 2010 Part II

Upcoming Movies – January 2010 Part II

I haven’t done an upcoming movies list in a while so there are quite a few here, and it is a two-parter (continuing from Upcoming Movies – January 2010 Part I). 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 II post.


—– Edge of Darkness —–

Martin Campbell (Casino Royale, Goldeneye) re-directs a story he has previously done for BBC TV as a mini series. This marks Mel Gibson’s first acting gig after the under-rated Signs. The trailer looks a bit generic though…

Release Date: January 29, 2010 —– TRAILER —–

—– I Love You Phillip Morris —–

Jim Carrey, talented as he is, hasn’t has a great movie in a while. Team him up with Ewan McGregor and I am definitely interested. While it doesn’t look like the movie will get a huge distribution, I’m sure I’ll see it on DVD somewhere. I hope…

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

—– The Ghost Writer —–

Roman Polanski’s latest. He can be a hit and miss director, (what the heck was Ninth Gate?) but this looks kinda good.

Release Date: Sometime in mid 2010 —– TRAILER —–

—– The Company Men —–

The trailer for this is very vague, but from what I understand it is about men losing their jobs and dealing with the aftermath. I personally am not an Affleck hater, and would like him to get a good movie, so I’m optimistic.

Release Date: 2010 —- TRAILER —–

—– Chloe —–

I for one think this looks intense. Liam Neesom is usually good, Juliane Moore is well-respected (I’ve never been a huge fan, but I haven’t seen many of her movies), and Amanda Seyfred is good as well. Here’s hoping…

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

—– From Paris With Love —–

The director of Taken, Pierre Morel, returns with From Paris With Love. This movie adds to John Travolta’s resume of bad ass action roles. Jonathan Rhys Meyers (from The Tudors) gets a lead role here, which is interesting.

Release Date: February 5, 2010 —– TRAILER —–

—– Repo Men —–

I must admit I’m a big fan of Jude Law, so this movie caught my attention. I’m also rather big on sci-fi, so there’s a double whammy. The trailer, however, looks like a Minority Report rip-off. A man in a system gets in trouble with the system and must fight his way to innocence. We’ve seen it before. And yet I’m still optimistic, I don’t know why.

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

– Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief –

This movie looks like the lamest, by the numbers, rip-off movie I have ever seen. It is directed by Chris Columbus after all. Sean Bean? Pierce Brosnan? Uma Thurman? What the heck are you doing in this? Yes I guess I’m not that optimistic about this one.

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


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