The Fighter
Based on a true story of brothers involved in boxing. Knowing it's biopic-y makes me realize that's likely why the trailer looks too spoiler-y, but I don't think I'll be able to resist the sport-centric inspirationalness starring Mark Wahlberg, Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Melissa Leo, directed by David O. Russell (I Heart Huckabees, Three Kings).

How Do You Know
And let's complete that sentence with 'if you are in love.' At least I think that's where they are going with this romcom Reese Witherspoon, Owen Wilson, Paul Rudd and Jack Nicholson. Directed by James L. Brooks (Spanglish, As Good As It Gets, Broadcast News).

Rabbit Hole
Heart-wrenching drama on December calendar seems pure awardsness, and it feels compelling and haunting from the trailer with a great cast of Nicole Kidman, Aaron Eckhart and Dianne Wiest, is certainly enough to get me interested although dealing with loss sometimes can be too harsh. We'll see. Also starring Giancarlo Esposito and Sandra Oh, directed by John Cameron Mitchell (Short Bus, Hedwig and the Angry Inch).

Country Strong
Gwyneth Paltrow stars as a country music star whose looks like she's had her fair share of personal battles and then hits the road on tour with a young ingenue. The story of a fallen singer is one we've seen a lot (Crazy Heart, A Star is Born), but hot dang I am sold on this one because it's got a realness to it as well as an inspirational strength. I can't wait to see it. Also stars Tim McGraw, Garrett Hedlund, Leighton Meester, directed by Shana Feste (The Greatest).

Oh dear, not much of a line up yet. I'm quite certain they'll screw up Let the Right One In.

Shannon the Movie Moxie said...

Well at this point we are mostly looking at sequels, remakes and adaptations. I'm sure more stuff will come along. I'm looking forward to Clash of the Titans and Eclipse at the very least.

Selfstyler said...

Aside from maybe Clash of The Titans, not a lot there that's piqued my interest. What about Iron Man 2?

Shannon the Movie Moxie said...

Ya caught me Self-Styler! Iron Man added to the list (it's out Friday May 7, 2010). Also added Daybreakers, Alice in Wonderland and Robin Hood.

Suzie Ridler said...

Very cool to see what's coming up! Looking forward to The Wolfman, Iron Man 2, and Kung Fu Kid. I hope that means Jackie Chan is playing Mr. Myagi, that is too cool! The Green Hornet and Air Bender are definitely big highlights for me. Awesome, thanks Shannon!

C. M. Dobson said...

Very nice list of upcoming movies. I know there are several of those I am waiting to see, and some I'm sure I'll see just to judge if they're better than they sound.

Shannon the Movie Moxie said...

2010 is sure shaping up to look like a fun year at the movies - there are tons I'm looking forward to for the sheer enjoyment factor!

Movies 2010 said...

Here' I can barely wait for Christopher Nolan's Inception!

It's gonna be a hell of a movie with Leonardo DiCaprio in the lead role!

Mixtapez said...

Thanks for the list, do you update this every month or every year.

Shannon the Movie Moxie said...

Weekly, actually. I'll make a new list for 2011 when there are enough confirmed release dates that look interesting.
