Plot Outline: A team of mercenaries head to South America on a mission to overthrow a dictator.
Director: Sylvester Stallone
Cast and Crew: Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Mickey Rourke, Jason Statham, Sylvester Stallone, Brittany Murphy, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren
Arnold Schwarzenegger, Mickey Rourke, Jason Statham, Sylvester Stallone, Jet Li, Ivan Drago Dolph Lundgren, Steve Austin and Randy Couture are a team of mercenaries headed to South America on a mission to overthrow a dictator. Christ how badass is that? Watching the trailer though it’s seams to be a Stallone Statham show though with a little Li and Rouke thrown in for good measure. The cameos will sure make up for a great film. Quite possibly the film I’m looking forward to the most but at the same time I know I’ll be let down somewhere.
The Last Airbender
Plot outline: Based on the animated series Avatar: The Last Airbender, the story takes place in a world divided into the Fire, Water, Earth, and Air Nations. A young “airbender” named Aang must stop the Fire Nation from taking over.
Director: M. Night Shyamalan
Cast: Noah Ringer, Dev Patel, Cliff Curtis, Jackson Rathbone, Shaun Toub, Aasif Mandvi
It can be a really cool movie, or an epic failure to end all epic failures. M. Night shyamalan eventually bought out its patented thrillers, which is nice since The Happening and Lady in the Water sucked. But he is the kind of big-budget fantasy? Some people have heard of the source material, which mean box office is pretty weak, unless the ad campaign Wows a bunch of people. But it’s cool to see Slumdog Millionaire Dev Patel’s trying to choose a name for himself over the Best Picture winner last year.
A Couple of Dicks
Plot outline: A comedy about two cops who try to locate a stolen baseball card and rescue a kidnapped woman.
Director: Kevin Smith
Cast: Bruce Willis, Tracy Morgan, Seann William Scott, Adam Brody, Kevin Pollak
So this is a cop movie starring a white guy and black guy generic right? Ah, the script is good, enough to attract the director Kevin Smith – who’s never directed a film he hasn’t written. Everyone agrees that the project take adequate wage agreements, to maintain the film’s R-class. This is another possible hangover-style project – but with Bruce Willis on the project you can’t go wrong.
Alice in Wonderland
Plot outline: Tim Burton and Johnny Depp (as the Mad Hatter) take on Lewis Carroll’s classic.
Director: Tim Burton
Cast: Johnny Depp, Mia Wasikowska, Michael Sheen, Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter, Alan Rickman, Crispin Glover, Christopher Lee
Who better to take on Carroll’s cracked-out, drug-influenced Alice in Wonderland than Burton and Depp? Plus, the six of you who saw the first season of HBO’s In Treatment already know that Mia Wasikowska will give a terrific, star-making performance as Alice. The only red flag? An odd March release date. We thought the combination of Depp and a big budget made for an automatic summer debut.
Plot: No plot released
Director: Mitchell Hurwitz
Cast and Crew: Michael Cera, Jason Bateman, David Cross, Portia de Rossi, Jeffrey Tambor, Will Arnett
Hands-down the most anticipated movie of 2010, Arrested Development fans have been pining for a big-screen adaptation ever since this ingenious show was kicked off the air (yes, by someone retarded). And after tamping down a slew of rumors about its future, the producers have made it over some hurdles necessary for moving forward, like signing Michael Cera on to the production. But until we start seeing official trailers, we’re just going to assume this one isn’t even coming out, just to stave off the disappointment.
No trailer yet, but I leave you with the famous Chicken Dance montage
