Legion: Having lost faith in the human race, a legion of angels descend to Earth to bring about the Apocalypse. Humanity’s only hope lies in a group of strangers trapped in a diner and the Archangel Michael himself. It stars Paul Bettany, Dennis Quaid, Kevin Durand, Tyrese Gibson, Adrianne Palicki, and Doug Jones. I think this looks awesome! It seems a bit similar in story to The Prophecy, but the visual effects here just look crazy. Release Date: January 2010 (US), March 2010 (UK)

Dorian Gray: A corrupt young man somehow keeps his youthful beauty eternally, but a special painting gradually reveals his inner ugliness to all. This trailer came out a couple of weeks ago, but somehow I managed to miss it. I like the dark look they’re going for, but I’m hoping it’s not too costume drama-ry. Release Date: September 2009 (UK)

Astro Boy: When a scientist’s son dies, he secretly creates a powerful robot to replace him, but the robot uses its powers to become a famous superhero and faces his biggest challenge when an alien threatens Earth. So far we’ve only seen teasers, but now we finally get a full length theatrical trailer. It looks funnier than I imagined it to be. Release Date: October 2009 (US), January 2010 (UK)

New York, I Love You: In the city that never sleeps, love is always on the mind. Those passions come to life in New York, I Love You – a collaboration of storytelling from some of today’s most imaginative filmmakers and featuring an all-star cast. And what a cast! Release Date: October 2009 (US)

It’s Complicated: Oh wow, a movie inspired by a Facebook status. Jane is the mother of three grown kids, owns a restaurant/bakery and has an amicable relationship with her ex-husband, attorney Jake. But when Jane and Jake find themselves out of town for their son’s college graduation, things start to get complicated. Hmm, Meryl Streep, Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin. I want to like this movie, because of Baldwin and Martin, but I just can’t stand Streep in romantic comedies (she was the main thing I didn’t like in Mamma Mia). Release Date: December 2009 (US), January 2010 (UK)

Me And Orson Welles: Set in 1937 New York, the story centers on a high school student (Efron) who happens upon the yet-to-open Mercury Theatre and is noticed by its mercurial founder, Orson Welles. The man lands a part in “Julius Caesar,” the production that catapulted Welles to the top, and spends the next week learning about life and love. Looks a bit cutesy, although I might end up seeing it. Release Date: unknown

The Open Road: A tale of a young man looking to reconnect with his long-lost father — a famous baseball legend — and bring him back to the bedside of his ailing mother. Together they embark on a road trip that none of them will ever forget. It’s got Jeff Bridges in it, so that’s got me kind of interested. But the other main character is played by Justin Timberlake; I don’t know, I just can’t stand him most of the time. Release Date: August 2009 (US)

The Boys Are Back: Inspired by a true story, The Boys Are Back is a deeply moving, wryly confessional tale of fatherhood, that intimately evokes both the fragility and wonders of family life. It follows a witty, wisecracking, action-oriented sportswriter (Clive Owen) who, in the wake of his wife’s tragic death, finds himself in a sudden, stultifying state of single parenthood. Release Date: September 2009 (US)
