UPCOMING MOVIES – October 2010

Upcoming Movies – October 2010

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 – October 2010 post.


 —– The Way Back —–

Peter Weir is one of my favourite directors, and his last movie was the excellent Master and Commander:: The Far Side of the World. He has a great way of making thoughtful, smart, and entertaining movies without sacrificing crowd-pleasing abilities. I look forward to this greatly.

Release Date: Sometime in 2010 —– TRAILER —–

 —– The Tourist —–

Johhny Depp and Angelina Jolie star in what looks to be an entertaining thriller. Directed by word-check defying Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck, it looks like Depp is being given a great chance to be wryly funny, and Jolie a chance to be sultry, both of which they do well.

Release Date: December 10, 2010 —– TRAILER —–


 —– The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader —–

I must admit I enjoyed the first movie in this downtrodden series. The second faltered, and frankly it looks like they are changing the storyline from the book hugely in this one. I hope this doesn’t affect the film, but I guess we’ll see.

Release Date: December 10, 2010 —– TRAILER —–

 —– 127 Hours —–

Danny Boyle’s follow-up to the succesful, but in my view over-rated, Slumdog Millionaire, is a true story about a man who finds himself trapped while mountain climbing. James Franco stars in what will essentially be a one-man show. It definitely looks interesting.

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


 —– The Tempest —–

Julie Taymor, director of the under-rated Across the Universe and Titus, returns to the Revised Shakespeare gig with this star-studded film. Critics seem to be iffy on the film, but my interest is piqued.

Release Date: December 10, 2010 —– TRAILER —–

 —– Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 & Part 2—–

While I hate to jump on band-wagons, I truly enjoy this series, and this penultimate movie is shaping up to be the most epic of the Potter films yet. With Bill Nighy and Cirian Hinds added to the cast we can now officially say that every British actor has participated in the franchise.

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


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