Check out HollywoodLife.com’s predictions for the actors and actresses who are going to make it big in the New Year!
Although she appeared in one of the biggest grossing movies of the year, Twilight Saga: New Moon, it was her role as an ambitious and uptight corporate executive in George Clooney’s 2009 drama Up In The Air that earned Anna a Golden Globe nod. The 24-year-old actress isn’t a stranger to awards, though: she’s a former Tony nominee for her role in 2003’s Broadway production of Camp .
2. Dianna Agron
As Glee’s pregnant cheerleader Quinn Fabray, Dianna Agron could easily have been pigeon-holed as another pretty blond, but her comedic-timing and pitch-perfect voice have set her apart from the pack of Hollywood wanna-bes. And as soon as The Romantics – the film the 23-year-old »

Michael Keaton thinks the time is right for a sequel to Beetlejuice. The Us actor was a hit in the 1988 comedy fantasy and said of all his roles, it is the one he would most like to return to. The movie, directed by Tim Burton, is all about a recently deceased young couple who try to scare off the new owners of their home by becoming ghosts. They decide to recruit a mischievious 'bio-exorcist' from the underworld named Beetlejuice, played by Keaton. A sequel was reportedly in the pipeline in the nineties, but failed to get the go ahead. But its biggest star Keaton thinks it's high time the Beetle was unleashed on the »

Check out a look at the Disney preview below (and click here to check out the 2010 Warner Bros. preview). When In Rome »

Ready to ring in the New Year with a few movies to watch at home? I've got some fresh picks for you - and more than one is perfect for a good scare! Paranormal Activity If you're anything like me, then you might have been intrigued, but too terrified to see Paranormal Activity in theaters. Now that it's on DVD, perhaps you'll feel braver about checking out the Blair Witch Project-esque film that features "lost" footage of a couple as they are tormented by other-worldly elements in their home. The movie had one of the most successful viral marketing campaigns of all time earlier this year, so it might be worth checking out just to finally see for yourself what all your friends have been talking about. DVD extras include an alternate ending and a downloadable digital copy of the film. 82% See two more releases when you read more. Jennifer's Body »
We are leaving Kubrick behind and fast approaching Hyams. If you get that reference, go grab yourself a cookie. It is time for us to reflect back on the decade that was. On January 1st, 2000, Disney released Fantasia 2000. On Wednesday, December 30th, 2009, The White Ribbon is set to bow.

It was a long trek getting this list together, but here are our collective top 100 films of the past decade.

Ashlee Simpson had a Starbucks in hand while Pete Wentz carried Bronx out to play at a NYC park yesterday. With most weekday performances in Chicago only at night, Ashlee has her afternoons free to explore the city with her husband and son. Despite the chilly Winter weather, Bronx was quite the trooper as he manned a swing. It wasn't all outdoor activities for the family, though, since Pete also blogged about seeing the Tim Burton exhibit at the MoMA. The Simpson-Wentz family has been spending the last few weeks enjoying their temporary home in the Big Apple, but soon Pete will be off to Vegas in order to welcome 2010 at the Jet Mirage.

Mia Wasikowska has admitted that filming Alice In Wonderland was an "isolating" experience. Speaking to the Los Angeles Times, the 20-year-old Australian explained that she found it difficult to act on greenscreen sets. "I was basically planted in this sea of green," she said. "I really had to use my imagination." Tim Burton's adaptation of Lewis Carroll's fantasy story, which casts Wasikowska in the title role, sees Alice return to Wonderland 12 years after her first visit. "She's (more) »

As we come to the end of 2009, it’s time to look forward and put together our list of our most anticipated movies of 2010.
Last year could have been worse – 5 of our 10 most anticipated movies of 2009 turned out to live up to our expectations (including Watchmen, Up, and Star Trek), while the other five ranged from mediocre (Public Enemies) to downright disappointing (Terminator Salvation, Wolverine, Transformers 2). Of course “most anticipated” does not necessarily mean “movies we think are going to be awesome” – it’s “movies we hope are going to be awesome.”
This year the task was made a lot easier thanks to our senior editor Kofi Outlaw putting together Screen Rant’s 2010 movie preview, giving us a one-stop list from which to gather the biggies. While last year was a group effort, this year I’ve decided to pull rank and come up with the list myself, with »

Best Films Of The Decade (aka The Naughties) From Alex & Terry
List # 1
By Alex Simon
When Terry and I initially discussed writing these lists, I had a tough time thinking back on 20 films over the past decade which I was really taken with, thinking that movies have sunk so low over the past ten years, that even choosing a dozen would be a short-order job. Thirty minutes into it, my list had nearly 60 titles! After much cutting, pasting, and re-cutting and pasting, here are my top 20 films (in no particular order) of the first decade of the 21st century, dubbed by many as “the naughties.” --A.S.
1.No Country for Old Men (Coen Brothers, 2007) An elegiac blend of stark beauty and full-throttle despair from two of our finest filmmakers, set in the contemporary American West. Every frame is damn near flawless, and would have been an even more perfect vehicle for the late Sam Peckinpah. »

2010 is going to be a huge year for Disney. The Mouse House may have made headlines in 2009 by acquiring Marvel and returning to 2D animation, but the studio is poised to have people talking in ‘10. Two live action adaptations of their own classics (The Sorceror’s Apprentice and Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland) and two anticipated sequels (Toy Story 3 and Tron Legacy) should be enough.
However, Disney has been sneaking plugs for their big summer blockbuster Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time into conversations. People are curious about a shirtless Jake Gyllenhaal and what Pirates producer Jerry Bruckheimer has done with him.
That was a long way to go to get to Legos, but at least there’s a point here somewhere. Lego fan site Brickset has five new Persia play sets featuring key scenes from the film, which means you can now collect Lego camels and figures with turbans. »

So you’ve unwrapped all of your Christmas presents, received three copies of District 9 from multiple uncommunicative family members, and the year of 2009 is about to be wrapped up. The debate is over: 2009 has been a great year for film. So what do you do now?
Why, start thinking about what’s around the corner, of course!
While there’s less in the way of interesting sci-fi, as 2009 will surely be remembered for, 2010 has plenty of interesting new films in store, as well as some remakes, reboots and sequels. Here’s a list of the 15 most anticipated films of 2010, in order of release, followed by a minefield of movies you might consider avoiding.

Disney has released a new batch of character stills for director Tim Burton's latest movie, Alice in Wonderland. Based on the books by Lewis Carroll, Burton's Alice tells the story of adult Alice's (played by Mia Wasikowska) return to Wonderland and her quest to dethrone the wicked Red Queen ( Helena Bonham Carter).
Previous images and posters have focused mainly on the human and human-looking characters of Alice, the Mad Hatter (Johnny Depp) and the Red Queen, but these new images put the spotlight on some of the bizarre creatures that populate the whimsical Wonderland landscape. In addition to a clearer image of the Caterpillar previously seen on the movie's official Facebook page, the new stills include the White Rabbit, March Hare, Doormouse, and Cheshire Cat.

Twilight fans, you might think that no one has ever loved vampires like you do, that there's no way your parents could understand the passion you have for sweet, tortured Edward Cullen. That's because you probably haven't head of Dark Shadows. Decades before Stephenie Meyer put pen to paper, the 1960s gothic soap opera was entertaining daytime TV fans with tales of witches, werewolves, and, yes, blood-sucking fiends of the night. There have been many attempts to remake the series since its original airing, but with the recent vampire craze comes a new stab at the Dark Shadows world - and this one stands a real shot of happening because Tim Burton and Johnny Depp are partnering to remake »
We're less than three months away from Alice in Wonderland, and while it's been almost 50 years since the Disney cartoon, the wait may have been worth it for the resources to catch up to Tim Burton's creativity. Here's a new bit of Alice art (thanks to JoBlo) that showcases Burton's imagination and how it meshes with Lewis Carroll's original tale.
Hey, enlarge it
It's the next movie planned for IMAX (following Avatar) and in fact it's lined up to be the first major heavyweight of 2010, the kind of movie that might still be on the box office list a year from now, in part because it won't need the IMAX money because it will have such a broad appeal to young and old, or at least older.
Expect Disney to ram it down our throats between now and early March and then expect it to pay off. Here »
