(Revised) Most Anticipated Movies of 2010

5. Black Swan

Darren Aronofsky (The Fountain, Requiem For A Dream) directs Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis in a film about Ballerinas. Sound Gay? It is, when you consider that Portman and Kunis share a sex scene. With each other. But I digress; Portman plays a ballerina who competes with another dancer for the lead role in a ballet. Problem is…the other girl might be a figment of her imagination. Hmmmm….

4. The Social Network

Perpetual Badass David Fincher (Fight Club, Zodiac, Se7en) throttles down his epic style to tell the simple tale of an accidental billionaire. While the (true-esque) story isn’t as high-concept as the plots of Fincher’s previous efforts, his masterful work behind the camera and ability to create tension out of thin air will surely make this one epic. Even if you’re one of those self-righteous folks that hate Facebook, this should still rock your world. Just go into it objectively and give yourself over to Fincher.

3. Tron: Legacy

The first one was an amazing achievement of technical wizardry…in 1982. But honestly…it was kind of a mess. Just sayin. But now, with Jeff Bridges returning as Techno-God Kevin Flynn, the long-awaited sequel from first-time director Joseph Kosinski is poised to re-write the rules on how computer-based baddassery is done. Early reviews are saying that the 3D visuals are game-changing, the story is epic, and indeed, Jeff Bridges still rules. P.S. Daft Punk did the entire soundtrack.

2. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Part 1)

Ummm…yeah. Did you see that trailer. Holy S.
So, let’s review: Ya got yer Star Wars, Ya got yer Lord of the Rings, and Ya got yer Harry Potter…is HP and the DH gonna push the Harry Potter series past the others? Hmmm…it looks that good.

1. True Grit

The Coen Brothers direct Jeff Bridges and an All-Star cast in a Western set in Texas that’s a re-adaptation of the book that was previously adapted into what has become possibly the most celebrated Western of All-Fucking-Time. ‘Nuff Said.
