The 10 Most Anticipated Films of 2010

31 December 2009 9:38 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

For many people, a new year means a time for new habits, resolutions, and fresh starts.  For myself though, it’s always been about one thing and one thing only:  365 days of brand-new films!

And of course, Hollywood being Hollywood, there’s the usual litany of sequels, super-hero spectacle, remakes, and state-of-the-art Hollywood summer craziness filled with all manner of digital monsters and explosions.  But there’s also new films from Scorsese, Christopher Nolan, and - most intriguing of all - a ballet thriller from Darren Aronofsky.  Come on, admit it - you know you got excited when you heard the words “ballet thriller!”  All that, and we also see the return of Michael Douglas in his seminal role as Gordon Gecko.

Read on after the jump for my list of the ten films that - for reasons both good and bad - I’m most looking forward to seeing in the new year. »

3D for Robin Hood, Jackass, and Star Wars?

27 December 2009 1:31 PM, PST | newsinfilm.com | See recent newsinfilm news »

Expensive three-dimensional technology seems to be paying off for James Cameron’s Avatar, which topped a competitive Christmas weekend and is wowing audiences worldwide.  This naturally has Hollywood types looking through dollar sign pupils at their upcoming releases and stroking their beards at how to replicate that success.

Though Avatar was shot in 3D from the beginning, an increasing number of executives are seeing the benefit of spending the extra $8 million for at least a post-production conversion to three dimensions.  It’s not just in the premium pricing either.  In a time when theaters are under siege from piracy and the possibility of on-demand, as well as a struggling DVD market, there’s value in luring audiences back to stadium seating and sticky floors.

TheWrap.com’s Sharon Waxman wrote a great article about the 3D mania sweeping the town, naming a few titles that may be getting the new experience. »

The 15 Most Anticipated Films of 2010

27 December 2009 10:16 AM, PST | ReelLoop.com | See recent Reel Loop news »

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.

Blanchett's Christmas Tricks For Her Kids

25 December 2009 5:26 PM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Australian actress Cate Blanchett is determined to make sure her kids keep believing in Santa Claus - and she makes a mammoth effort every year to prove he's real.

The Elizabeth star has three sons with her screenwriter husband Andrew Upton - Dashiell, eight, Roman, five, and Ignatius, 18 months.

Blanchett admits she loves making Christmas special for her kids, and she goes all out to reinforce their belief in Santa.

She says, "We get up to all kinds of fun at Christmas. We always feed Santa Claus - that's a big tradition. I put my reindeer socks on and sprinkle flour so it looks like the reindeer have come down. But you do have that sense that you only have a few years before the kids say, 'You're lying to me!'" »

Penguins, Nicole Kidman and Narnia – Paul Howlett picks his film highlights

Christmas Eve

Over the Hedge

(Tim Johnson, Karey Kirkpatrick, 2006) 4.25pm, BBC1

A DreamWorks animated adventure in which Rj, the cynical racoon (laconically voiced by Bruce Willis) teaches a burrowful of innocent woodland animals to forage off the waste of an encroaching housing estate rather than rely on boring old natural food, before inevitably seeing the error of his ways. Plenty of good slapstick fun for kids and cine-literate gags for adults, although it all seems a bit glib compared to Shrek and co.

Corpse Bride

(Tim Burton, Mike Johnson, 2005) 6pm, ITV1

Life, in Burton's typically weird and ghoulish fantasy, is a dull, grey affair: death is much more colourful and fun, as young Victor (voiced by Johnny Depp) discovers when he is whisked into the underworld by the maggoty Corpse Bride (Helena Bonham Carter). Trouble is, he's in love »

First Posters From Ridley Scott’s Robin Hood

23 December 2009 12:20 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

For your viewing pleasure, Collider presents some pictures of Russell Crowe looking pissed off. The good news is, they weren’t taken at the Mercer Hotel and a blood-caked telephone is nowhere to be seen. Rather, they’re international posters for director Ridley Scott’s highly anticipated Robin Hood. They feature Crowe (apparently fresh off a screening of Zombieland) in close-up, pointing a ready-to-fire bow and arrow menacingly right at your face.

The message here seems to be in line with that of the original North American trailer: Robin Hood is a badass and this summer you should come watch him do lots of badass stuff. In many ways, it’s reminiscent of the campaign that launched Zack Snyder’s 300. I know some people have taken issue with this, but I’m really not concerned. With a name like Ridley Scott attached, you know you’re in store for a »

New International Trailer for Ridley Scott’s ‘Robin Hood’

22 December 2009 11:00 AM, PST | The Flickcast | See recent The Flickcast news »

We just discussed the recently released trailer for Robin Hood, starring Russell Crowe, Cate Blanchett, and a host of other excellent actors, But, now Yahoo has the exclusive trailer for the international audience; and it shows far more Robin Hood-like action, and even the prerequisite shot of the camera being the arrow flying through the trees at a target.

Instead of a pounding “metal” tune backing up the images in the last trailer, this time it seems that the music for this trailer is from The Dark Knight, backed up with some added violins; and then some much more decidedly British-isle sounding music.

We also get a good smattering of dialogue, including the soon to be classic, “Are you ready to be, who you are?” There are glimpses of Marian in action, the Sheriff (Matthew MacFayden) yelling at someone, and the still engaging Max von Sydow giving his best Commissioner Gordon speech, »
