Looking forward...

Even as I'm making my selections for the first round of BAFTA voting, I'm already looking forward to the cinematic delights that 2010 has in store.

This isn't an exhaustive list of films by any means, but it does give some indication of what a promising year lays ahead of us...

Alice In Wonderland (dir. Tim Burton)

Inception (dir. Christopher Nolan)

Never Let Me Go (dir. Mark Romanek)

Toy Story 3 (dir. Lee Unkrich)

Shutter Island (dir. Martin Scorsese)

Iron Man 2 (dir. Jon Favreau)

Green Zone (dir. Paul Greengrass)

The Social Network (dir. David Fincher)

The American (dir. Anton Corbijn)

Tree Of Life (dir. Terrence Malick)

The Way Back (dir. Peter Weir)

Black Swan (dir. Darren Aronofsky)

The Book Of Eli (dir. The Hughes Brothers)

The Killer Inside Me (dir. Michael Winterbottom)

Somewhere (dir. Sofia Coppola)

[REC]2 (dirs. Jaume Balagueró, Paco Plaza)

Biutiful (dir. Alejandro González Iñárritu)

Tron: Legacy (dir. Joseph Kosinski)

The Eagle Of The Ninth/Centurion (dir. Kevin Macdonald/dir. Neil Marshall)

The Losers/The A-Team (dir. Peter Berg/dir. Joe Carnahan)

London Boulevard (dir. William Monahan)

Salt (dir. Philip Noyce)

The Wolfman (dir. Joe Johnston) Yes, really

And if you’re wondering why there’s no Kick-Ass, it’s because I’ve already seen it.

What no ROBIN HOOD?!

Good to see Sofia Coppola with a new project

Nope, my leaving off Robin Hood was a mistake. See, I said it wasn't complete.

Can't wait to see what SC does next. Big fan.

Matt J said...

Yes, and I'm quite intrigued to see how Ridley's screenwriter of choice-William Monahan, does with his directorial debut-London Boulevard.
AICN has some cracking trailers for potential 2010 winners-in partic. DAYBREAKERS, LEGION, FROZEN looks like fun & SEASON OF THE WITHCH seems to be channeling Name Of The Rose medieval goodness (Ron Perlman included).

The first year of this new decade is looking up. . .

Mark Salisbury said...

Legion looks like a lot of fun. I've held off watching the Frozen trailer because I read that it has too many spoilers. Do you agree?

Matt J said...

Yep-that's true, it does appear to give away a lot. But they are perhaps predictable moments that are inevitable in this story.

Did you ever see BLACK WATER-lost Aussies stuck up a tree while giant croc circles?

Mark Salisbury said...

Nope. I know the one you mean though. Sounds right my, ahem, tree.
