Top 10: Most Anticipated Movies of 2010

LeTune December 10, 2009 27


The coming year looks to be all about sequels, remakes and tried and true formulas. The good news is, there’s not much coming out that we have to take a chance on. It will be interesting to see if anyone “re- imagined” anything a little differently this time around. At least I wish that Hollywood would bring back originality.

Here are the Top 10 Most Anticipated Movies of 2010:

#10. A Couple of Dicks

Release date: 26 February 2010 (USA)

An action comedy about two cops; what do you think the odds are the cops are black and white? This movie was directed by Kevin Smith- who is known for great dialogue, so a movie with Bruce Willis and Tracy Morgan could be entertaining. We’ll see.

#9. Toy Story 3

Release date: 18 June 2010 (USA)

Proving that getting stars back for sequels is not as hard as it once was Tom Hanks and Tim Allen are back as Woody and Buzz in Toy Story 3. It will be interesting to see how the TS characters stack up to recent 3D animated movies. Both Hanks and Allen have proven themselves to be tremendous voice talent so the burden of success lies in the animator’s hands.

#8. Robin Hood

Release date: 14 May 2010 (USA)

This is a retelling of the Robin Hood legend from the Gladiator team of Ridley Scott and Russell Crowe. This promises some epic battle scenes. Somehow though, the Robin Hood theme never gets old, even though this is something like the 43rd retelling.

#7. The Book of Eli

Release date: 15 January 2010 (USA)

A man fights his way across the war ravaged countryside of America in order to protect a mysterious book that will somehow save mankind. Okay, I’m willing to bet it’s not Emeril’s cookbook.  This might be the most original movie of the year.

#6. Date Night

Release date: 9 April 2010 (USA)

So what happens to married couples when they get tired of each other? They have a date night; and more. What exactly that more is, is unknown. But this movie has Steve Carrel and Tina Fey, so you KNOW it has to be funny.

#5. Jonah Hex

Release date: 18 June 2010 (USA)

In the late 1800s, a Wild West bounty hunter and former Confederate soldier Jonah Hex, attempts to stop a voodoo witch doctor to take him down. The reason? He’s raising an army of zombies. Yes, western comic book hero fighting zombies. It really doesn’t get better than this… unless Megan Fox is there too. Oh WAIT! She is!

#4. Iron Man 2

Release date: 7 May 2010 (USA)

Tony Stark, and Jim Rhodes are at it again. This time they fight Whiplash and the Black Widow. Samuel L. Jackson is Nick Fury (a choice that is wholly endorsed). In Marvel film this is going to be a center piece and a lead into the one of the most hyped movies in years: The Avengers. Don Cheadle takes over the role of Jim Rhodes/War Machine, a controversy we will all be hearing about while coming out of the theater.

#3. The Rum Diary

Mostly not sober freelance journalist Paul Kemp (Johnny Depp) tries to find the meaning of life while writing for a run-down newspaper in Puerto Rico. For Fear in Las Vegas fans, this is a dream come true. Depp seems to have an affinity for the character of Kemp and it’s no wonder as the offbeat hilarity and nonsensical saga of Paul Kemp continues.

#2. Inception

Release date: 16 July 2010 (USA)

Christopher Nolan could have rested on his laurels after directing Batman Begins, instead he shocked and wowed us all with The Dark Knight. This year he is due to release yet another movie: Inception. There are not really a lot of details out there on this movie, but Nolan’s pedigree is enough to propel this effort to #2.

#1. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I

Release date: 19 November 2010 (USA)

The first part of the conclusion to the Potter series will arrive this summer. Many movie growers have grown up watching the Harry Potter series and the franchise has grown with them by increasing its intensity and adult content without adding gratuitous violence (and certainly no sex) to the mix.

For older ticket buyers caught up in the series this is refreshing. For those of us who have read the series, we have to wonder if two parts will be enough. There haven’t been a lot of adverts for this movie, there doesn’t have to be, we all know it’s worth the price of admission.

          Ok, I think that even though twilight may not be better than harry potter, that twilight was WAY MORE anticipated than it… Twilight kinda filled the place of harry potter u dont want to admit it but you know im rite!

        • harry potter? July 4, 2010 at 7:44 pm -

          Harry potter’s actors don’t even care about the films anymore… They need to stop making them. And the fact that you’re freaking out over some stupid comparison, show’s how retarded you are.

        • Abdullah September 9, 2010 at 9:44 pm -

    Jonah Hex looks like fun! ;-)

  6. shakayla July 30, 2010 at 3:16 pm -

    ok, so everyone has their opinions on movies. Twilight:: it is awesome, but harry potter has been around way longer, so it deserves credit. But twilight has gained so much in such a short time that it pretty much has the same amount of awesome. Just needed to be put out there. And, Yes, Jonah Hex looks choice as.

    LOL that was one of the most geek-tastic “my room is in the basement” argu-post I have ever read. BUT
    YES Twilight should be on there (NO I am not a fan) but it is a (unfortunate) big one and
    NO you do not compare Twi to Harry. Ever.

  9. mo-chan October 28, 2010 at 6:38 pm -

    Must not be normal, I didn’ t anticipated ANY of these movies. I wasn’t even aware they were out this year. (okay I know about HP tho) I was more anticipating How to Train your Dragon and Scott Pilgrim versus the World.

    i think the whole twilight vs harry potter thing is shit i have had an obbsession with both these movies at one stage and i think there both great and most of the twilight fans would of seen at least 3 of the harry potters before they had even heard of twiliight and some of them fans would of liked harry potter and i think both fan bases should stop bagging the other one and i do think that eclipse and charlie st cloud should be on this list

  11. Why? November 28, 2010 at 9:43 pm -

    I don’t get it. One: Twilight is a best-seller based off of pop fixation, not actual literary merit. Not at all. The books re one of the most unenjoyable reads because of being so poorly written. Harry Potter, on the other hand, is not only well-written and thought through, it brings both younger and older readers to concepts that were once thought outside the reach of that age group. Such as actual life and death, hate, the power of love and God. It also happens to have vast popular appeal to many people. It’s a success on many levels. On the other hand, Twilight appeals to so many young readers because it is so easy to understand. It’s simple. There isn’t any complexity at all. No concepts being introduced. It’s an empty read.

      I agree that HP has been around wayyyyyy longer. i remember that I was in grade 5 or 6 when the 1st movie came out !!!! now i am 22 how times fly
