Hot Movies for 2010 & Other Upcoming Movies

The line-up of 2009's movies is about to end, and oh yes, we've seen a few great ones, and a whole lot of AWFUL ones (yes, that includes Transformers 2 & the upcoming GI Joe movie which seems inevitably dumb in my opinion). But enough of that for now. Because now, we are taking a peek at some of the highly anticipated movies of 2010, and in here, we can find their newly released posters.

is an upcoming Western film based on the DC Comics character of the same name. Hex is an anti-hero, with the right side of his face is horribly scarred, he kinda looks like Two-Face. Although this is heavily a western action genre, the series has had times when the character faced some supernatural villains as well (which I personally dont think will be included in the movie). Under Warner Bros., the film is directed by Jimmy Hayward and stars Josh Brolin as the title character, Jonah Hex. The film is scheduled to be released on June 18, 2010.

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time
is a film written by Jordan Mechner, Boaz Yakin, Doug Miro, and Carlo Bernard, directed by Mike Newell, and produced by Jerry Bruckheimer. The film is based on the 2003 video game of the same name, developed and released by Ubisoft Montreal. The game actually originated from the 1989 Prince of Persia developed for early systems like the Nintendo Entertainment System, better known in our neck of the woods as Family Computer. The film stars Jake Gyllenhaal as Prince Dastan, Gemma Arterton as Tamina, Gísli Örn Garðarsson as The Vizier, Sir Ben Kingsley as Nizam, and Alfred Molina as Sheik Amar. Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time will be theatrically released on May 28, 2010.

A Nightmare on Elm Street
is an upcoming 2010 American horror film written by Eric Heisserer and Wesley Strick, directed by Samuel Bayer, and produced by Michael Bay, Andrew Form, and Brad Fuller. The film is a remake of the 1984 slasher film of the same name, which was written and directed by Wes Craven, and designed to reboot the franchise. The film stars Jackie Earle Haley as Freddy Krueger, a role made famous by Robert Englund, while Rooney Mara takes over the role of Nancy Thompson, who was originally portrayed by Heather Langenkamp. The remake will see its theatrical release on April 30, 2010.

is a movie based on the video game series created and developed by Konami. Its main story revolves around vampire hunters from the Belmont clan waging an endless conflict against the immortal vampire Dracula. announced that James Wan, the co-mastermind behind the Saw franchise, and director of Dead Silence and Death Sentence, will be co-writing and directing Castlevania.

"I'm very fresh on this project, so its early stages and I'm still trying to work things out, but the producers love my vision for it," James Wan tells Bloody-Disgusting in an exclusive chat. "I'll be working on the script with a writer to give it a new spin, different to the previous versions. This will have my stamp on it which Konami is very excited about.

"The thing I love about what Konami did with Castlevania, was taking the iconic Dracula mythology and Eastern-European setting, and retelling it with a Japanese pop-cultural sensibility," he continues. "That’s the East-meets-West tone I want to visually expand on for the film. I’m thrilled by the opportunity to make a highly stylized, fantasy, action film that focuses on the gothic storyline and the cool, anime-like characters. For once, the human hero is as sexy and dangerous as the vampire villain, and his weapon of choice was what attracted me to the project in the first place – The Vampire Killer Whip.”

There is still no announcement as to when this movie is going to be officially released. As far as what has been publicized, this film is still being developed. But then there is already a poster being released.
(And now for something which is just a few months away...)

Ninja Assassin
is an upcoming martial arts film directed by James McTeigue and starring Rain. The film is produced by Joel Silver and the Wachowski brothers.

McTeigue cited various influences in filming Ninja Assassin such as the films Panic in the Streets (1950), The Getaway (1972), Badlands (1973), Ninja Scroll (1993), and the television series Samurai Champloo (2004-2005). The project was also inspired by the ninja scenes featured in the Wachowskis' 2008 film Speed Racer, in which the actor Rain had impressed the Wachowskis with his portrayal as a fighter.
The film is scheduled to be released on November 25, 2009.
