The 10 Most Anticipated Films of 2010

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

Deciphering Chris Nolan’s ‘Inception’

30 December 2009 3:36 PM, PST | | See recent Screen Rant news »

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 »

Inception to be one of the big films for 2010

29 December 2009 3:50 AM, PST | Monsters and Critics | See recent Monsters and Critics news »

Along with Iron Man 2, Tron: Legacy and Alice In Wonderland, Inception is one of the films for 2010, which has been creating buzz among the film industry. Critics have described the minute-long trailer alone as 'fantastic'. Directed by Christopher Nolan, the man behind The Dark Knight and Memento, it features a strong line-up of stars including Leonardo DiCaprio, Sir Michael Caine, Marion Cotillard and Tom Hardy. Inception has a lot to prove, though, having been dubbed The Matrix for a new generation. With a budget reported to be around the £120 million mark, the sci-fi thriller features top-notch visuals and effects, has a complex plot set within the workings of the mind – the tag »

Second Inception Trailer Turns the World on Its Ear

28 December 2009 11:00 AM, PST | | See recent news »

It was released to theaters last Friday in front of Sherlock Holmes (those of us lucky enough to catch early screening of Holmes got to see the trailer earlier in the week), but Warner Brothers and Apple have finally put the second trailer to Christopher Nolan’s next, Inception, online. How is it?  In a word, Ohmyfriggingod!  This movie looks so epic and amazing.  The CG appears flawless, and, even though the second trailer doesn’t give us much more in the way of story than what we got with the first trailer, you just know Nolan is going to put story first.

Anyone who remembers 2006 will remember that even the side projects Nolan has been doing away from the Batman franchise are on par with the best stories put to film.  It’s no surprise that Nolan has four films (The Dark Knight, Memento, The Prestige, and Batman Begins »

The Best Films of the Decade (aka "The Naughties")

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. »

IMDb’s Top 25 Movies Of The Decade

27 December 2009 8:35 AM, PST | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

As compiled by SlashFilm… IMDb’s top 25 films of the decade, as voted by IMDb’s millions of users. And as SlashFilm noted, it might be easy for any of us to immediately dismiss this list as nothing but fanboy and fangirl contributions, however, this is definitely the largest sampling of opinions of all the other best of lists that we’ve seen so far, and will ever see… until some other site comes along that trumps IMDb in terms of user numbers.

So, here they are, accompanied by the year of release and number of votes received. They are ranked based on a combination of total votes and overall rating (which I didn’t include). So there are films that have more votes than others before them, but rank lower on the list due to their overall rating:

1. The Dark Knight (2008) 410,450

2. The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King »

Recap: A group of Jewish-American soldiers known as the “Inglourious Basterds” are making their way through Nazi occupied France, killing the Germans. But a German Colonel (Christoph Waltz) is out to get them, before they get him.

Reason: It’s really tough to pick a film from 2009 for this list. Have I given it the proper amount of time? Will I feel the same way? »

Best of the Decade #10: The Dark Knight (2008)

16 December 2009 7:20 AM, PST | FilmJunk | See recent FilmJunk news »

Some people are going to love this choice, and others are going to hate it, while a smug few will simply roll their eyes and call it predictable, but as far as I'm concerned, The Dark Knight is a necessary inclusion on any Best of Decade list. Jay already talked about the ubiquity of comic book movies over the past ten years in his Spider-Man 2 write-up [1], and yet this is so much more than just another blockbuster superhero flick. The performances, the writing and the direction all treat the material like a top notch crime drama that is both deep and gripping. It just so happens that the two main characters also dress up like a bat and a clown. The death of Heath Ledger certainly played a role in making this movie appear larger than life, and created a compelling real-life narrative outside of the film that the »

David Michôd talks Sundance success

8 December 2009 2:49 AM, PST | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

The man with the most famous circumflex in Australian filmmaking - and the bane of sub-editors everywhere - David Michôd, bounced back into headlines again last week with the news that not one - but two - of his feature films have been accepted into Official Competition at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival. 

Yes, that's right - both Michôd's feature directorial debut Animal Kingdom, a gangland movie set in the Melbourne criminal underworld, and Hesher, the Joseph Gordon-Levitt-starring independent Us feature he co-wrote with director Spencer Susser, will screen at the Park City alpine festival in January.

Michôd first sprang to international attention after practically taking over the short film circuit in 2008 when Crossbow (which he wrote and directed) premiered at Sundance along with two other shorts he co-wrote, Nash Edgerton's Spider, and Spencer Susser's zombie film I Love Sarah Jane.

In 2009, the festival also screened another of his short films, »

Guy Pearce Joins Nicolas Cage And January Jones In 'The Hungry Rabbit Jumps'

30 November 2009 1:30 PM, PST | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

Shh — be very, very quiet. Guy Pearce is hunting wabbits. Or jumping for them, at least.

Pearce, the actor behind such hits as "The Proposition" — not to be confused with the Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds rom-com "The Proposal" — and "The Time Machine" — which is, sadly, the atrocity you're thinking of — has joined the cast of "The Hungry Rabbit Jumps," the thriller starring Nicolas Cage and January Jones of "Mad Men" fame. Roger Donaldson is the director.

Variety reports on the casting news but neglects to mention the specific role that Pearce has in the film. Given the premise of the movie and Pearce's talents, however, it's likely — not definite, but more than possible — that he'll play one of the movie's multiple antagonists.

In October, MTV News spoke with James D. Stern, one of the film's producers. He described "The Hungry Rabbit Jumps" as a vigilante-centric thriller.

James McTeigue Interview, Ninja Assassin

26 November 2009 8:00 PM, PST | | See recent MoviesOnline news »

We sat down recently with director James McTeigue to talk about his new film, “Ninja Assassin,” based on a screenplay by Matthew Sand and J. Michael Straczynski, and starring Korean pop star Rain, Naomie Harris, Ben Miles, Rick Yune and legendary martial arts performer Sho Kosugi.

As a boy in Sydney, McTeigue was exposed to a variety of world cinema and television and was heavily influenced by ninja television shows like "Shintaro" and "Phantom Agents," and by films such as "Shinobi No Mono." He graduated from Sydney University, where he studied art and film.

McTeigue made his directorial debut helming the iconoclastic screen adaptation of the graphic novel "V for Vendetta." He came to the project through his relationship with the Wachowski brothers, for whom he served as the assistant director on all three "Matrix" films. His other previous film credits as an assistant director include "Speed Racer" and "Dark City. »

Guy Pearce Jumps Like a Hungry Rabbit

26 November 2009 5:46 AM, PST | | See recent Reel Loop news »

You know who we don’t really see enough of? Guy Pearce.

The Guy is proven talent, from Ravenous to Memento to The Hurt Locker, but for some reason has never really been given his chance to shine as a leading man in the public eye since the lackluster Time Machine remake.

The good news is that we’ll be seeing him again very soon, in Roger Donaldson’s The Hungry Rabbit Jumps. You may remember Donaldson from The Bank Job and The World’s Fastest Indian. Pearce is joining the film alongside Nicolas Cage and Mad Men’s January Jones, while no other casting details have been revealed.

The film, which will center around “a man (presumably Cage) who becomes entangled with an underground vigilante organization after his wife (Jones) is the victim of a brutal crime” has been scripted by unproven screenwriter Robert Tannen. It sounds remarkably similar »

Inception Stars Talk About Film

21 October 2009 8:10 AM, PDT | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Chris Nolan instantly became one of my favorite current filmmakers after I saw Memento. Since then, he has joined the ranks of Scorsese and Spielberg as a mega-director who has total fidelity to his own artistic vision. The Dark Knight, rather than being an obstruction for his career, has actually given him license to make just about anything he wants. What he wants, of course, is to make Inception, but nobody exactly knows what that is. It’s a sci-fi film starring Leonardo DiCaprio. A trailer has been released. But few other details have emerged about the story. Recently, both MTV and Empire (via First Showing) have interviewed members of the cast, but they won’t reveal anything besides the fact that it’s the most amazing thing you’ll ever see ever. First, Cillian Murphy shares his thoughts with MTV: “This is my third film with Chris,” Murphy said. »

'Inception' Hints From Cillian Murphy, Only On MTV

19 October 2009 2:30 PM, PDT | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

Oh "Inception." We all want to know more about you. And yet director Chris Nolan, the man behind such outstanding efforts as "Memento" and "Batman Begins," has put the lockdown on his actors. No one will talk about this thing. All we have is a mind-bogglingly cool trailer and lots of indirect hints.

All of this mystery brings me back a decade to 1999, when people were beside themselves with excitement about "The Matrix" based primarily on a similarly badass trailer. I don't want to elevate my expectations too high, but Nolan's track record sort of speaks for itself. And hearing what Cillian Murphy had to say about the movie in a recent interview with MTV's Josh Horowitz, I'm even more excited.

"This is my third film with Chris," Murphy said. "He showed me the whole script. It’s very very complex and amazing. I’m hugely excited for next year when it comes out. »

How Much Would You Pay to Visit the Inception Set and Have Lunch With Christopher Nolan? Did I mention it’s for Charity?

29 September 2009 11:50 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

If you’re a huge fan of director Christopher Nolan and have dreamed about standing on a movie set and watching him direct, you’re about to possibly spend a lot of money. That’s because The Pablove Foundation is auctioning off (for charity) an amazing opportunity to go to the set of his new movie “Inception” and not only watch him work, but you’d also have lunch with him. While the set visit would be a quick two hours, this is definitely an amazing opportunity as the set of “Inception” is closed to all outsiders and you’d probably get to see some really cool stuff. Also, you’d be able to have an intimate chat with this brilliant director and you’d be in the unique position to ask him all the questions every fan wants to know like is he going to make “Batman 3″ and who are the villains! »
