Here are the movies I am most looking forward to in 2010. How about you?
March 5: Alice in Wonderland – Tim Burton’s sets are always amazing, so I am looking forward to experiencing his vision of Wonderland.
March 26: Clash of the Titans – I was a big fan of Ray Harryhausen’s special effects as a kid, but the new effects on this look pretty amazing.
May 7: Iron Man 2 – 2008 was a great year for movies, and Iron Man was probably the best of the bunch. Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) is back along with Mickey Rourke as Whiplash, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, and Samuel Jackson as Nick Fury. Gwyneth Paltrow is back as Pepper Potts, and look for Stan Lee doing a cameo as Larry King.
May 14: Robin Hood – Ridley Scott and Russell Crowe have done some quality work in the past, so I look forward to seeing their adaptation of an old favorite. (Max von Sydow is aboard, too!)
June 18: Toy Story 3 – 1 and 2 were both great, and 3 is in 3-D. What more could you want? (How about Michael Keaton and Timothy Dalton joining the cast?)
November 19: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 – This is the only book of the series I actually read, although I have seen all the movies so far. The book starts off with a bang and keeps moving right to the end. I wonder where they will leave the cliffhanger between parts 1 and 2 for the movie?
December 10: The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader – I love all things Narnia. These books have been a big part of my life since I was a kid, and it is so much fun seeing them come to life on the big screen. Plus, Dawn Treader is one of my favorites.
December 22: The Green Hornet – Aaah, Batman, Lost in Space and the Green Hornet. Those were the days of TV watching as a kid. Here’s hoping they do a good job with this. (I’m not thrilled to see Cameron Diaz on board.)
Also in 2010 (no release date yet): Hoodwinked Too! Hood VS. Evil: “Red Riding Hood is training in the group of Sister Hoods, when she and the Wolf are called to examine the sudden mysterious disappearance of Hansel and Gretel.” The first Hoodwinked! was a real hoot – fun characters, clever storyline, great music and great off-beat humor. Hoodwinked 2 looks like a worthy follow-up with a great cast including: Hayden Panettiere as Red, Bill Hader and Amy Poehler as Hansel and Gretel, Joan Cusack as the Witch, Bill Murray as Mr. Alligator, David Ogden Stiers as Nicky Flippers, Glenn Close as Granny, Martin Short as the Woodsman, Brad Garrett as the Giant, and Patrick Warburton reprising his role as The Wolf.
