Predators: Starring Adrien Brody and Laurence Fishburne, this movie follows a group of elite warriors who come to realize they’ve been dropped on an alien planet… as prey. With the exception of a disgraced physician, they are all cold-blooded killers – mercenaries, Yakuza, convicts, death squad members – human “predators” that are now being systemically hunted and eliminated by a new breed of alien Predators. This looks like fun! I loved the first movie, and this sequel looks like it could be a worthy follow-up. Release Date: 9 July 2010 (US), 22 July 2010 (UK)
Bluebeard (Barbe Bleue): I love fairy tale movies, and this French retelling of Bluebeard looks great. The fairy tale it’s based on is pretty dark, and not the most obvious one to turn into a movie. Based on Charles Perrault’s tale, Bluebeard tells the story of young Marie-Catherine, child bride to an aristocratic ogre with a reputation for murdering his wives. Marie-Catherine must employ all her cunning to outwit her husband and escape the most unpleasant of fates.
The Last Airbender: I’m still not convinced by this yet; but then I’m so attached to the cartoon version of this, I might be a bit too bias to judge this properly. Like in this trailer, the main thing that annoys me is the voice of Aang. It’s completely not right! But yeah, I guess anyone who hasn’t seen the cartoon won’t have a problem with it. Release Date: 2 July 2010 (US), 13 August 2010 (UK)
Despicable Me: After 3 short teaser trailers, that didn’t really show that much, we finally get a full length trailer of this 3D movie. It looks like it could be fun, although I don’t think it’s something I’d go see in the cinema. Release Date: 9 July 2010 (US), 15 October 2010 (UK)
The Switch: A smart, fun-loving single woman (Jennifer Aniston) decides it’s time to have a baby, with a little help from a charming sperm donor (Patrick Wilson). But, unbeknownst to her, Kassie’s plans go awry because of a last-minute switch that isn’t discovered until seven years later when her neurotic best friend Wally (Jason Bateman) finally gets acquainted with Kassie’s cute–though slightly neurotic–son. Release Date: 20 August 2010 (US)
Megamind: After super-villain Megamind (Will Ferrell) kills his good-guy nemesis, Metro Man (Brad Pitt), he becomes bored since there is no one left to fight. He creates a new foe, Titan (Jonah Hill), who, instead of using his powers for good, sets out to destroy the world, positioning Megamind to save the day for the first time in his life. Hmm, based on the description it could be fun, but this teaser trailer seems a bit… simple. Release Date: 5 November 2010 (US), 3 December 2010 (UK)
