JoBlo.com's most anticipated movie for 2010 (Part 1/2)

01.05.2010

Just cause it's 2010 doesn't mean the lists are over! I know you might be listed out at this point but we've got one last one to share: my look ahead into 2010 to see what movies I'm most looking forward to. Unlike the Best Films of the 2000s, this isn't a list that a bunch of people voted on - this is just me and my peculiar tastes (which might explain a lot of the choices on here). Today we have the first half of the list (#s 20-11) and tomorrow we'll bring you the Top 10. Check out the list below and make sure to share the movies you're most looking forward to in the comments!

20. MACGRUBER
(April 23)

You can call me crazy if you like but I'm including a movie based on a SNL skit on my Most Anticipated list. I know the "MacGruber" sketches have been fairly one-note but with the creative talent assembled for this film (Will Forte, who's been on fire on SNL this season, Kristen Wiig and director Jorma Taccone), I'm convinced this will be one of the most wonderfully bizarre comedies of the year. I mean, c'mon, Val Kilmer plays a villain named Dieter von Cunth. That's worth something.

19. THE A-TEAM
(June 11)

THE A-TEAM is one of those movies I have a feeling I probably won't like but I can't help but look forward to anyway. I was never a huge "A-Team" geek as a kid so I'm not entirely married to the material so I'm merely curious to see what they can do with the franchise and their impressive cast (Liam Neeson, Bradley Cooper, Jessica Biel and Sharlto Copley). I love it when a plan comes together!

18. NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET
(April 16)

There haven't been many Michael Bay horror remakes that have tickled my fancy. The FRIDAY THE 13TH remake was awful and I could never get into either of the TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE films. Yet I'm holding out hope for NIGHTMARE. Maybe it's having an Oscar-nominated actor like Jackie Earle Haley playing the villain. Maybe it's that the NOES franchise was a little more creative than the others in the slash-up-them-teens genre. And besides, they decided not to remake ROSEMARY'S BABY so I feel like I owe em one.

17. PREDATORS
(July 9)

I'd probably have a new Predator-based film up a little higher on my list were I not burned previously with both ALIEN VS. PREDATOR films. I foolishly looked forward to both and left theaters more than a little disappointed. But this film has a much stronger cast (led by Oscar-winner Adrien Brody), a proven director (Nimrod Antal) and a producer in Robert Rodriguez who has wanted to make a PREDATOR film for years and years. So I'm willing to put the past behind us and look forward to PREDATORS.

16. THE WOLFMAN
(February 12)

So far I've loved the trailers that Universal has released for THE WOLFMAN. Both were released on the same day as AVATAR trailers and I wound up liking WOLFMAN better both times. Is that a sign of things to come? It has been hard to ignore some of the bad buzz associated with the film though. I won't rehash it all here but it hasn't all been rosy for the Wolf Man. Lately I've heard more positive reports that things have been fixed up rather nicely so let's hope this WOLFMAN has some serious nards.

15. THE SOCIAL NETWORK
(October 15)

I never though a movie about Facebook starring Justin Timberlake would interest me in the slightest. But the script for THE SOCIAL NETWORK by Aaron Sorkin is one of the best I've read in recent memory. Add to that David Fincher directing and suddenly I'm friending this movie. (Damn, I thought I could get through this without a terrible Facebook pun.)

14. YOUR HIGHNESS
(October 1)

One day, hopefully soon, an embargo will be lifted and I'll be able to tell you all about YOUR HIGHNESS. And then you will understand why it is on this list. Until then, you'll just have to trust me.

13. PAUL
(May 28)

When you can pair up the stars of SHAUN OF THE DEAD with the director of SUPERBAD and ADVENTURELAND, I'll be there on opening day no matter what. With PAUL, that's exactly what you get as Simon Pegg and Nick Frost team up in this Greg Mottola flick about a couple of Comic-Con nerds who befriend an alien (played in mo-cap by Seth Rogen) at Area 51 and travel cross-country with him in tow. A movie with scenes at Comic-Con? Hopefully I'm not drunk in the background...

12. THE OTHER GUYS
(May 28)

Despite what you might say about LAND OF THE LOST, Will Ferrell has done enough for me that I think I'll always include one of his straight-up comedies on my Most Anticipated list (especially when, like here, he reteams with his ANCHORMAN director Adam McKay). 2010's entry teams Ferrell with Mark Wahlberg as a bunch of loser cops who want to be the hot shots of the NYPD scene. I was able to watch an afternoon of shooting here in NYC and I'm already quoting the lines I heard that day.

11. THE GREEN HORNET
(December 22)

Seth Rogen whipped his ass into some serious superhero shape to star in THE GREEN HORNET. While Rogen certainly looks like a superhero, he hasn't abandoned his sense of humor as GREEN HORNET will be an equal mix of comedy and action. With Michel Gondry handling the visuals and Christoph Waltz playing an evil villain, that's just the cream on top of the strudel.
