  1. damn, looks like some fine movies coming out, and some not so fine ones lol, i guess we gotta take the good with the bad

  2. Going the distance looks like crap.. im in a long distance relationship so i know how it is, but that just looks bad.

  3. I dunno Anthony, looks like alot more duds than studs in those films.

  4. Dangit, you guys beat me to it. I guess I’ll hold off watching your trailer until I finish mine. :)

  5. everything is either a re-boot/remake, or garbage.

  6. Looking forward to;

    The Town.

    Tron Legacy.

    Black Swan.

    Harry Potter.

    Morning Glory.


    That’s about it for me. Nice selection. The rest is meh.

    • theres actually more movies coming out that i actually wanna see. which is odd, maybe im softening up in my old age. im actually looking forward to the True Grit remake..and everyone here knows im against them LOL

  7. The synopsis of MegaMind gave away far more than the trailers have. Oops to me for reading that haha.

    This will be an interesting Fall, but to me the more watchable movies are occurring in September/October, which is odd considering most of the time that’s when studios dump their horrible movies.

  8. WOW. Theres alot of movies i have to see ;)

  9. looking forward to alot of these.
    i find that my need to be entertained often trumps my need to be critical.
    will probably see:
    res. evil afterlife
    saw 3d (yeah, i know)
    skyline (maybe, depends on the feedback)
    “the next three days, and black swan” look interesting
    the fighter
    definately “tron and true grit”

    absolutely not. the juaqinn phoenix thing, the chick flix i can wait for cable tv when nothing else is on.
    and isn’t it funny how m.night.shyamalan has turned out to be the charlie brown of directors? just having him attached to a movie puts him at the bottom of my list, if not off altogether

  10. What about Harry potter???

  11. Movies here that I want to see:
    Black Swan
    The Tempest
    Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows
    Paranormal Activity 2
    The Social Network
    Easy A
    The Towm
    Maybe Devil

    Glaring Ommision:
    Never Let Me Go

    • Nah, I saw that. Didn’t know how many people who read us would be interested in it. But Jose, I’m adding it just for you!

      • Really? Thanks.

  12. I forgot about a lot of these movies. Thanks for the roundup, looks like I’ll be blowing lots of cash this fall in the theaters.

  13. Alpha and Omega
    Never Let Me Go
    Love and Other Drugs

    Have all been added. Never thought I’d hear the SR crowd inquiring about those films :-)

  14. The King’s Speech?

  15. Tree of Life?

    • It’s probably not on here since its not official whether or not its even going to be released this year.

  16. Waaaay too many movies in that list I want to see. I will most likely have to wait for the smaller movies to come out on DVD or Blu Ray as I doubt a movie like Black Swan for example, will play up here in Alaska.

  17. As usual, you Screen Ranters have gone the extra mile and given us all stuff to look forward to…or avoid completely! lol
    Personally, I can’t wait to see RED (I’m regfering to the film…not anger)

    Thank you ScreenRant!

  18. “Honey want to catch a movie tonight?


    sure what’s playing?

    “I Spit On Your Grave: Unrated”

    ,,, 8-)

    Cool list,,,

    I’m down for Machette and Monsters. Maybe Skyline and that train flick.

    • Machete is at the top of the list for me 790, gonna be a good flick im anticipating lots of dismemberments, a few beheadings..goof fun!!

  19. Danny Trejo is A list in my book!

    • he is THE MAN..i was at comic-con a few years back and RR was there doing a panel of the now defunked Red Sonja remake/reboot/ and someone in the audience went off topc and asked him about Machete. so RR goes off in a perfect trejo imitation, it was spot on and very funny.

  20. EDIT: The synopsis for Burlesque is incorrect. Christina Aguilera is playing the small-town girl who moves to LA. Kristen Bell co-stars.

    • Thanks Elisabeth,

      Edit made.

  21. “The Romantics” (I haven’t wanted to see Katie Holmes in something in a long time)

    “Easy A” (just love Emma Stone)

    “The Town” (Ben Affleck is finally looking good again)

    “Case 39″ (for Ian McShane)

    “Never Let Me Go”

    “Let Me In” (just to compare to original)

    “You Will Meet A Tall Dark Stranger” (Woody Allan has been hit or miss for me lately… we’ll just have to see)

    “Nowhere Boy” (Kick-Ass is looking good)

    “The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest” (Noomi Rapace blows me away as Lisbeth Salander)

    “Unstoppable” (because I like to see a movie with virtually no CGI, thank you Tony Scott)

    “Harry Potter…” (here comes the end of my childhood)

    “The Next Three Days” (I like Russell Crow well enough and am curious if the wife did it or not)

    “Black Swan” (looks effing amazing)

    “Somewhere” (haven’t Stephen Dorff in a good role in a while)

    “True Grit” (I want to like Westerns… this might help)

    “Blue Valentine” (I really like Michelle Williams and hope Ryan Gosling is in “Half-Nelson” form)

  22. I still do not know….2010 has thus far been so dissapointing. Alot of fluff and bad, bad films. Perhaps the Fall can save this year, but I see only a handfull to attend, a few to rent. To me the choices are obvious. However staying true to form….I can ALLWAYS count on SR to help me with these decisons. Thank you for the complete list.

  23. Tron, Skyline, Wall Street,Spit On Grave, Saw 3d,
    and one of the biggest omissions RED DAWN.
    Still seems up in the air as to whether RED DAWN
    will be released this November. Time will tell.

  24. Harry potter is the only movie im DYING to see but also wanna see machete,megamind,unstoppable,case 39,paranormal activity,little fockers,gullivers travels,etc….

  25. Tron :D

  26. Okay, now which one of you taking me to the movies? 790? Anthony? The Rickster?

    I will go half’s on the popcorn & soda? Buy your own Milk Duds.


  27. Wow… got some tough choices here, guys.

    Here are the movies I’m looking forward to seeing…

    Due Date — I’d watch Robert Downey Jr. read the phone book out loud. (LOL!) Seriously, I hope this will be as funny as The Hangover.

    Unstoppable — Even though I’m getting a strong Pelham 1-2-3 vibe, this looks pretty cool, with no 3D or CGI involved.

    RED — Can’t wait to see Helen Mirren and Morgan Freeman kick some serious butt.

    Tron Legacy — Absolutely!

    Hereafter — Will be interesting to see how Clint Eastwood tackles the supernatural.

    Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps — Normally, I’m not a Shia LeBeouf fan, but he may be tolerable in this one.

    The Social Network — Another interesting film I’m looking forward to seeing.

    Paranormal Activity 2 — They’d better not hurt that baby…. :)

    Movies I’ll wait for on DVD/Blu-Ray…

    Skyline — This film didn’t excite me for some reason.
    Little Fockers — see above.
    The Next Three Days — This is one of those movies I’d have to watch a second time, and the movie-going budget doesn’t allow for repeat watchings.
    Burlesque — This has “cult classic” written all over it. :)

  28. Does anybody know what tools Mike Eisenburg used to make this Anthemic short?

  29. AIDys
    LOL well i can get u in for free :)

    • Sweet! Now that’s what I’m talking about ;D

      • HAHAH and free popcorn too ;)
