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. »

The joy of list-making continues today as I’m running down who I thought gave the best performances of the year plus what I thought were the best quotes and kills of 2009. Please keep in mind that regarding the performances, I haven’t seen a few key films that could have very well changed the winners and runners-up: Crazy Heart (Best Actor), The Last Station and Bright Star (Best Actress), and a few others. If you think there was someone who clearly should’ve won or been nominated, shout out in the comments section and I’ll let you know whether I saw the film or not.
With this disclaimer out of the way, I present to you my picks for the best performers, directors, quotes, and kills of 2009. Hit the jump to check them all out.

So the first trailer for Christopher Nolan’s Inception recently appeared online, but I’m still hearing some people say that if the trailer wasn’t stamped with “from the director of The Dark Knight” they would have little motivation to actually care about the movie.
Now granted, Inception has maintained an air of almost total mystery every since we first learned of its existence, but with the clues that have been carefully sprinkled here and there, we here at Screen Rant think there’s enough potential for this to be a breakout film in 2010. We’ll explain why, with some hi-res photos helping to paint the picture (click on any still image below for a hi-res version).
So let’s take a crack at the most obvious question – What is Inception all about?
In past coverage of the movie, we’ve learned that Leonardo DiCaprio stars as “a CEO »

Leonardo DiCaprio’s latest flick “Inception” has all the elements to be a blockbuster sci-fi, fantasy action-adventure movie: Hot director, Christopher Nolan, hot leading lady, Marion Cotillard, and edgy hot co-star Ellen Page. Now, if only the plot makes sense. The latest trailer has just been released and it shows the film talking place in a mushy, squishy world, otherwise known as the mind. Think a blend of the “Matrix” movies and 1998’s “Dark City.” »

Matt Fraction and Brian Michael Bendis have been spending some time together, and last night's topic of conversation was "Siege" #1. Judging from the comments, Bendis may or may not have trapped Fraction in his home, and being sealed in Bendis' house may or may not be a good thing.
Elsewhere, Ron Marz had some fighting words for illegal comics downloaders -- and particularly for those who are superhero readers. Check out his take on comics pirating after the jump along with some original Nova artwork from Philip Tan, Bryan Lee O'Malley's clarification on his "Inception" tweet yesterday and Robert Kirkman's beard.
It's all in the Twitter Report for December 30, 2009.

It's got a hot leading man in the form of Leonardo DiCaprio; costars including a grown-up, post-Juno Ellen Page, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Cillian Murphy and Ken Watanabe; supercool visual effects; a heart-pounding score; and, oh yeah, it's director Christopher Nolan's first flick since his Dark Knight became the second-highest grossing film of all time behind James Cameron's Titanic. So what's the big idea? At first glance, it's a story about a guy who's out to steal some newfangled concept that allows people to build cities and other things in the matrix of their mind. It's no Vertigo. But it sounds like something Hitchcock would do if he were alive today. »
A few movie-related cheers and jeers got tossed around the Twitter Report's feed over the last 24 hours. Joe Hill seems to have been catching up on his "Green Hornet" news, and both Michel Gondry and Anvil have his approval. Bryan Lee O'Malley, meanwhile, sounded a little skeptical of Ellen Page's role in the new Christopher Nolan film "Inception."
In sports/comics crossover conversation, Brian Michael Bendis noticed the trending Vikings topic last night that was spurred by the Chicago Bears victory over Minnesota. He hoped that "Viking" writer Ivan Brandon would notice as well. Check out all of those retweets after the jump along with a birthday wish I endorse going out to Jeff Katz and a memorial shout out to Star Trek actress Majel Barrett, which I also support.
I'm @brianwarmoth, and this is your comics Twitterverse roundup for December 29, 2009.
@joe_hill I'm psyched to hear that The Green Hornet »

The film's official tagline is "a contemporary sci-fi actioner set within the architecture of the mind" and the trailer confirms that a crime has been committed within someone's mind, most likely Leonardo Dicarpio's CEO-type character. But is he asleep or awake during this trailer? Or both?
There's a great shot of a city literally folding over on itself as Ellen Page and DiCaprio look on. This must be in his mind, or their mind ala The Matrix. Either way, Nolan likely has some great twists up his sleeve.

Of all the movies at holiday time Up in the Air seems poised for the most lofty awards as well as commercial success. A luncheon at 21 was planned for the movie prior to the announcement of its Golden Globes nominations. Before, we were talking about an exceptionally sophisticated indie film with a big star, George Clooney, in the lead. Now we are looking at a wunder-film that hits the Zeitgeist just so, landing on every top ten list, with major Oscar potential, and yet, the celebration at 21 could not have been more grounded. As it happened, two years ago, when director Jason Reitman had a little film called Juno, a luncheon at 21 featured their famous hamburger. Juno played winningly by Ellen Page had a hamburger phone and plastic versions were doled out for a winning ticket. Sigourney »

We had “Inception” originally pegged as a sci-fi film, but let’s face it, this thing isn’t really all that sci-fi. So, we’re going to start covering it on BeyondHollywood.com more often now as a result. The latest — a brand spanking new trailer for “Inception”, which reveals more of a plot, complete with voiceover narration by Leonardo DiCaprio, who plays a high-tech thief named Cobb in the movie. He’s joined by Ken Watanabe, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Marion Cotillard, Ellen Page, Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy, Tom Berenger, Michael Caine, and Lukas Haas. “Inception” tantalizes July 16, 2010. And here’s a fresh poster from the movie released a week or so ago. Looks like Warner Bros. is trying to ape the success of Nolan’s “The Dark Knight” by way of posters. »
Warner Bros. has released the second trailer for Christopher Nolan’s Inception. Yesterday, the studio yanked the French trailer and, we’re not sure if they had planned to release the U.S. this soon, but here it is for your eyeballs.
The same thing happened in November when the Russian trailer for Angelina Jolie’s Salt landed online. The trailer was quickly squashed and replaced with a U.S. version because we just can’t handle foreign shite.
Inception revolved around a “CEO-type” who who becomes involved in a blackmailing scandal. The film stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Ellen Page (Juno), Ken Watanabe (The Last Samurai), the lovely Marion Cotillard (La Vie en Rose), Joseph Gordon Levitt ((500) Days of Summer), Tom Hardy (RocknRolla), Cillian Murphy (Batman Begins), Tom Berenger and Michael Caine.
Inception hits theaters on July 16.

Not that watching the trailer in our native tongue makes things any clearer though, as Leonardo DiCaprio gets busy with the "architecture of the mind" and indulges in all manner of brain-twisty shenanigans as Ellen Page and co look on with knotted brows. Needless to say, nothing more plot-wise is explained here but it's looking like Nolan's visual eye is still finely attuned and our interest is naturally highly piqued.
Take a look at the trailer and don't forget to let us know what you think in the comments section...

A brand new trailer for "Inception" has just been released, and it gives a closer look at Leonardo DiCaprio as main character Cobb. While the promo video, which came out courtesy of Apple, still doesn't help to explain what the movie will be dealing with, it does tease on that Cobb's mission is stealing ideas.
In addition to displaying footage of an entire city folding over on itself, the sneak peek to the sci-fi movie exposes some of the scenes in which Cobb is joined by his sidekick Ariadne, played by Ellen Page. It also shares more glimpses on other characters, including Ken Watanabe's Saito.
Described as a "contemporary sci-fi actioner set within the architecture of the mind", "Inception" is based on an original script written by "The Dark Knight" director Christopher Nolan. In addition to serving as director, he will carry out the role of co-producer along with Emma Thomas. »
In case you didn’t see Sherlock Holmes this weekend or catch the French version of this video, Warner Bros has released an English, high-resolution trailer for Christopher Nolan’s Inception. The studio has kept details surprisingly secret for the science fiction story, so please pardon the lack of explanation for the eyegasm of random images and confusing dialogue. I honestly have no idea what’s happening either. I can’t wait to find out.
Set “within the architecture of the mind,” Leonardo DiCaprio plays a CEO type that becomes entangled in a shady business of stealing ideas? Ellen Page, Marion Cotillard, Cillian Murphy, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Michael Caine, and Ken Watanabe also star.
Watch the embedded teaser below or in super high-res Quicktime at Apple.com:
Do yourself a favor and watch it twice. Inception is out in IMAX and traditional theaters on July 16, 2010.

Assuming there's any of your mind left to blow post-Avatar, the newest trailer for next summer's IMAX thriller Inception would seem to imply that director Christopher Nolan is seeking to do just that. This short but enticing clip features Leonardo DiCaprio and Ellen Page staring intently at objects and architecture, mostly with somewhat cataclysmic results. Still unclear on plot -- although Page's voice pleading "Wake me up!" would seem to indicate it's all a dream -- but for those looking to gnaw on some sweet visuals, this should be a tasty treat. What do you think, PopWatchers? »

Photo: Warner Bros. The previously released French international trailer for Inception was removed as it was accidentally made available to online outlets, but today the English version of that trailer has made it's online debut and I am sure you are chomping at the bit to hit play on the video below.
Inception is the new film from The Dark Knight helmer Christopher Nolan and stars Leonardo Dicaprio, Ellen Page, Ken Watanabe, Marion Cotillard, Joseph Gordon Levitt and Cillian Murphy. The only plot clue we have is the line describing the film is "a contemporary sci-fi actioner set within the architecture of the mind."
Make of that what you will. I haven't watched the trailer and am holding out for the film's July 16, 2010 release. So if you like it let it be known in the comments below.

The second, official trailer for Chris Nolan.s Ieception has arrived and it offers clues to what the heck this thing may be about. It.s the same trailer that showed up last week in French, only it makes a lot more sense when you actually speak the language. It.s narrated by star Leo DiCaprio, who talks a lot about ideas and seems to be hinting at the notion that he.s trapped in some sort of world controlled by the human mind. Late in the trailer he says this to Ellen Page: .Never recreate from your memory, always imagine new places.. More than ever I.m starting to get a Dark City vibe off this movie, and not just because there.s a scene in which the city seems to be folding in on itself. It looks fantastic. Check out the brand new trailer for Inception in »
