The films of 2010 that I am most looking forward to seeing

Here is a list of this year’s movies that I will be going to see in the cinema:

March:
Alice in Wonderland – A new live action version of the classic tale, directed by Tim Burton and starring Johnny Depp. Click here to watch a trailer for it via my main YouTube channel.

How to Train Your Dragon – A 3D CG cartoon movie from DreamWorks Animation based on the popular children’s book of the same name. Click here to watch a trailer for it.

April:
A Nightmare On Elm Street – A remake of Wes Craven’s classic 1984 horror movie, intended as a reboot of the series. Click here to watch a trailer.

May:

Robin Hood – A new live action version of the Olde English legend, directed by Ridley Scott and starring Russell Crowe.

Shrek Forever After (a.k.a. Shrek 4, Shrek: The Final Chapter) – The last episode of the now classic Shrek series. Click here to watch a trailer for it.

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time – A live action movie from Disney and Jerry Bruckheimer based on the popular video game series. Click here to watch a trailer.

June:
The A-Team – The first ever movie version of the brilliant 1980’s action/adventure TV show, starring Liam Neeson as Col. John "Hannibal" Smith, Bradley Cooper as Lt. Templeton "Faceman" Peck, Quinton "Rampage" Jackson as Sgt. B. A. Baracus and Sharlto Copley as Capt. H. M. "Howling Mad" Murdock. Click here to watch a trailer.

Toy Story 3 – The long-awaited next installment of Pixar’s flagship series with all the original main stars returning to reprise their roles. Click here to watch a trailer for it via my wife Su’s YouTube channel.

July:
The Last Airbender – A live action version of Nickelodeon’s "Avatar: The Last Airbender" cartoon series, directed by M. Night Shyamalan. Click here to watch a trailer for it.

November:
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I – To be followed by Part 2, the last Potter movie, in July 2011.

December:
The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader – Part 3 of Disney’s Narnia series based on the C. S. Lewis novels.

Tron: Legacy – At long long last, the sequel to the 1982 Disney cult classic. Click here to watch a trailer for it.

Now, all these movies are sure to be massive hits, and I really am looking forward to seeing them. But there is a bit of a worrying Hollywood trend here: with the exception of "How to Train Your Dragon", all the movies are either sequels or remakes.

Other likely big hit movies this year also follow that trend: February’s The Crazies (a remake of George Romero’s 1973 original film), April’s Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps (sequel to the 1987 first film), June’s The Twilight Saga: Eclipse (part 3 of the ongoing series – click here to watch a trailer for it), July’s Cats & Dogs 2: The Revenge of Kitty Galore (sequel to the 2001 first film) and November’s Red Dawn (remake of the 1984 original). Looks like there might be some opportunities for original screenplays in the future!
