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. »

The Notable Films of 2010: Part Seven

29 December 2009 7:16 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Mother and Child

Opens: 2010

Cast: Naomi Watts, Annette Bening, Samuel L. Jackson, Kerry Washington

Director: Rodrigo Garcia

Summary: A tale of a mother and daughter, separated at birth, who struggle with the damage done by the most important person missing in their lives while a young African-Americn woman deals with an unwanted pregnancy and the adoption process.

Analysis: Scoring rave reviews in Toronto, the $7 million latest effort of Rodrigo Garcia ("Nine Lives," "Things You Can Tell Just By Looking At Her") once again shows off his skill at weaving multiple narratives together in clever and unexpected ways. At its heart it's an emotional family drama, but Garcia excels with his female characters which makes the involvement of Naomi Watts, Kerry Washington and especially Annette Benning thrilling.

The few criticisms levelled at the film were toward some pacing and credibility issues in the last act, but otherwise praised it for not »

Multiple Personality Disorder Report

#1 James Cameron to redo “The Fantastic Voyage

Now don’t be getting too excited because there’s no news that Cameron will direct the project but Variety does report that Cameron is producing the film and from what I can gather, the project (and a few more to follow) is an effort to make use and money from the expensive technology he spent years prepping for Avatar. It’s a great opportunity to remake this sci-fi classic but with “Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem” writer Shane Salerno on board to adapt the original story, I can’t say I’m all that excited.

#2 Natalie Portman starring in “Pride Prejudice and Zombies”

This seems like an odd pairing but Portman does have the looks for period drama though I’m not sure what possessed her to agree to a period piece about a man searching for love amidst a zombie outbreak. Portman »

'Alien' writer Dan O'Bannon dies

18 December 2009 12:00 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Dan O'Bannon, the unassuming sci-fi screenwriter and quirky horror specialist behind the "Alien" film franchise, died Thursday at St. John's Health Center in Santa Monica after a 30-year battle with Crohn's disease. He was 63.

His work on various movies ranging from 1983's "Blue Thunder" to "Lifeforce" and the mid-1980s low-budget "Invaders From Mars" to 1990's Paul Verhoeven-Arnold Schwarzenegger blockbuster "Total Recall" made him an influential figure in the genre world, as his did his 1985 directorial debut, "The Return of the Living Dead."

But it was "Alien" with which he made his most lasting mark, helping to create characters and monsters that are still around today (Fox is readying an "Alien" prequel with original director Ridley Scott resuming helming duties.)

The St. Louis-born O'Bannon met John Carpenter at USC, where the two wrote a short film -- Carpenter's thesis film -- that turned into the cosmic low-budget comedy »

Laurence Fishburne Signs Up For Predators

18 December 2009 2:37 AM, PST | Screenrush | See recent Screenrush news »

When first we heard about the franchise reboot that is Predators, we couldn't help but think it was a bad idea (after all, look what happened to Alien vs. Predator!), but there must be something in director Nimrod Antal's return to those intergalactic safari hunters, as the project has clocked up yet another quality name to its cast.

Collider tells us that, in addition to the likes of Adrien Brody, Topher Grace, Danny Trejo and Alice Braga, the venerable Laurence Fishburne has signed up for some alien bashing.

That's right folks, Morpheus himself is joining the cast to play a tough guy named Roland in the Robert Rodriguez-produced flick.

This marks the second collaboration between Fishburne and Antal afrer their last flick Armored and is a good sign that the new Predator movie could well be a solid return to form. What do you guys think? Leave your comments below. »

Lance Henriksen is in Aliens vs. Predator!

13 December 2009 7:24 PM, PST | GameRant | See recent GameRant news »

If Lance Henriksen wasn’t already cool enough with a plethora of cool roles in cool movies, he’s even more awesome now with his recent push into the video game industry.

In one of the biggest video game releases of all time, Modern Warfare 2, Lance plays the voice of General Shepherd and now, he’ll be returning to a role he made famous on screen with Aliens, Alien 3 and the first Aliens vs. Predator film by playing the voice of Bishop in the upcoming Aliens vs. Predator video game.

The new AvP title is being brought to us by Sega and Rebellion Entertainment and in it, Henriksen will be playing the character of Karl Bishop Weyland, a descendant of Charles Bishop Weyland that he played in the first Aliens vs. Predator film.

Square Up For Wife Vs. Ninja

9 December 2009 11:25 PM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

It's not the most obvious of face-offs, perhaps - hardly up there with Alien vs. Predator or Superman Vs. Batman - but Wife Vs. Ninja is set for the screen with DreamWorks, and it actually sounds kinda fun.This is the story of a Long Island housewife whose scientist husband leaves her for a beautiful young intern. Our heroine discovers that said intern is in fact a ninja assassin out to steal her husband's work, and has to find a way to get rid of the bitch before the latter can accomplish her goal and (presumably) leave the cheating, lying husband dead in a ditch somewhere. Why the wife cares about his fate we're not sure, but it's still a great premise.Producer Michael Besman (Seven Years in Tibet, Georgia Rule) came up with the story, is producing and will write the script with debutant screenwriters Michael Zam and Jaffe Cohen. »

Henriksen is Coming Back for More Alien/Predator Carnage

8 December 2009 12:03 PM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Okay, so Paul Anderson’s Avp was such filth that not even Lance Henriksen’s turn as Charles Bishop Weyland could salvage it from the depths of shit that it sunk to. A good idea with terrible execution. That’s not stopping UK game designers Rebellion from casting the actor in their upcoming Aliens vs. Predator game, however. Read on for more!

Rebellion states that the actor will play another member from the Weyland family lineage, Karl Bishop. "They've made me look very good...This is the first time I've been fully represented in a game, with my voice and how I look, and the Rebellion guys have done a great job. I might score from this game!"

Cool stuff. The game is shaping up to be better than either Avp film (though I suppose that’s not too hard to do), and casting someone like Lance definitely lends the project some cool distinction. »

Resident Evil: Afterlife Pushed Back To 2011

7 December 2009 8:53 AM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Those of you who are looking forward to the fourth installment in the Resident Evil franchise, entitled Resident Evil: Afterlife, will have to wait a while longer before you get to see it. Shock Till You Drop has learned that studio Screen Gems has pushed back the fourth Resident Evil from its originally planned release date of August 27th, 2010, until January 14th, 2011. That’s almost five more months without a new Resident Evil movie in all our lives…

…However will we survive?!

So why has the studio delayed the fim? Well, if you’ve been following the news about it, you’ll know Resident Evil 4 is being done in 3D (it was only a matter of time…) by none other than the team that worked on James Cameron’s Avatar. If nothing else it should make the movie worth watching just to see if it even comes close to »

Paul Anderson Still Making 3 musketeers

17 November 2009 | HugAZombie | See recent HugAZombie news »

Yes, it's true: Paul W.S. Anderson is going swashbuckling. After he finishes Resident Evil: Afterlife, Anderson plans to make a 3-D version of The Three Musketeers. Why? Because only the director of Death Race and Avp can really do Alexandre Dumas justice.

Afterlife producer and frequent Anderson collaborator Jeremy Bolt gave up a few details about the project, which Bolt will also produce.

The movie will be set in the 18th century but will have a "contemporary feel." Based on the book (duh), the movie will contain lots of action and romance.

Constantin Films is financing a $80 million ollar budget which will start production next September with casting starting now.

Athos, Porthos, Aramis, and D’Artagnan: best of luck. May your horses race you out of the prison and into freedom, and may you defeat the evil hunters that can sometimes turn invisible.
