Incredible Movie Slate for 2009


Recommended Posts

I found this thread on IMDB.com and wanted to share it here. I had no idea so many 'epic' movies are in production right now to come out in 2009. Avatar looks very interesting, and I am absolutely thrilled about Peter Jacksons latest 'Lovely Bones' (VERY cool concept). Scorcese and Leo teaming up again is gonna be huge as always. Here is a copy and paste of the list from IMDB.com (I put the link at the bottom).

Lets be serious 2008 has nothing on 2009....

Potential for Oscars:

-Avatar - Supposed to be "as big as when star wars first came out or the introduction to sound," plus its James Cameron so its $ in the bank

-Shutter Island - Martin Scorsese and Leo, good enough

-Public Enemies - Bale and Depp with an awesome supporting cast, cool story to

-The Lovely Bones - Peter is up to something good here

-Tree of Life - Don't know much about this film except Bradd Pitt and good potential script

-Angels and Demons - book is supposed to be better than the Da Vinci Code

-Inglorious ****s


-Jurassic Park IV - I think this has had people waiting too long and something will happen in 2009, but this one I don't know if it will make it.

-Terminator Salvations

-Superman 2: Man of Steel

-Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen - Cannot wait for this

-X-Men Origins Wolverine

-GI Joe

-Sin City 2

-Star Trek

-Battle Angel - Its a James Cameron movie, just like Avatar it will be money in the bank.

-Watchmen - not a sequal but its an awesome graphic novel, the movie should be intense

-The A-Team

-Dragonball - looks terrible but could still be good action

-Fast and the Furious 4 - Vin Diesel is back hahaha with his hot sister MIA

-Brazilian Job

-Cloverfield 2 - everyone on this board is raving about Cloverfield so should be excited about this one

-24 the movie

-Pink Panther 2 - couldn't care less about this movie but it still widely known

-Nighti at the Museum II Escape from the Smithsonian

-The Wolfman remake

-Where the Wild Things Are

-Friday the 13 remake - Don't care about this movie but some people do

-Meet the Little Focker

Video Game Movies (most are disasters but I'm still excited that some of these will be fun times to watch)

-Peter Jacksons Halo Project - Expect something big for Halo next year, its going to happen I feel it so does ign.

-Prince of Persia

-Gears of War - could be some BA action

Comedies (propably much more that I'm not aware of right now)

-Arrested Development

-Jackass 3

-Funny People- (Judd/Sandler)

-Get Him to the Greek

-Year One


-Old School dos

-Tow Truck - Broken Lizard


-Ice Age Dawn of the Dinosaurs

-Monsters vs. Aliens

-Up - Its Pixar so its prolly going to be good

-1906 - same as Up

-How to Train Your Dragon


More Notables that I'm interested in I just ran out of categories





-The Box




-The Immaginarium of Doctor Parnassus - This is actually Heaths last role, and the Director has already said he will preserve all of his role, to honor Heath Johnny Depp as well as Colin Farell will be jumping into roles in the movie.

-Area 51

-Green Zone

-The Wrestler

-Rendezvous with Rama


-Alexander Livinenko

-American by Blood


-Interstellar - THIS could be the answer to Cameron's Avatar, could be sick if Spielberg gets it out in time (I'd prefer him working on JPIV first though)

I just listed like 35-50 potential movies for 2009 that I'm interested in seeing. Granted some may get moved back to 2010 but not more than 8-10 of them. So thats still about 40 movies that I'm excited to see next year. 2009 is going to be incredible I cannot wait!!

WOW what a list. Great job compiling it as well, I'm sure it took some work. I agree with the first 4 of your Oscar predictions. I don't think ****s or Angels and Demons has the oomph under it to succeed with voters.

And then Transformers, AVATAR(!!), Interstellar, Terminator, Watchmen, Imaginarium, Valkyrie, Nottingham, and Old School 2 are all on my must see list.

I'm really interested in The Lovely Bones and Arrested Development. I read The Lovely Bones a few months ago and it was really good. I read the other Mark Wahlberg will play the dad. I was excited to hear about the Arrested Development movie. I really miss the show.

As far as I'm aware, none of these movies are coming out next year, let alone even started development of any kind...

-Superman 2: Man of Steel

-Sin City 2

-Peter Jacksons Halo Project - Expect something big for Halo next year, its going to happen I feel it so does ign.

-Gears of War - could be some BA action

And all I need to know about the "A-Team" movie is that Tyrese is replacing Mr. T, which just sounds awful.

A lot of these movies haven't been cast and some don't even have scripts.

Rumor for A-team is:

Col. - Bruce Willis

Murdock - Woody Harrellson

BA - Ice Cube

John Singleton is directing.

Superman The Man of Steel is in all sorts of limbo.

I wouldnt believe Cube in that role. And John Singleton is not going to make it right.

I wouldnt believe Cube in that role. And John Singleton is not going to make it right.

After some research (I didn't know it was this close to coming out) the only thing confirmed is Singleton. Ice Cube just has shown great interest and as such is rumored.

Here's another site with the movies and some dude's take.


Brave New World: Ravaged Planet (2009)


[click photo for more info]

Plot Outline: After super-villains obliterate Chicago in 1976, those Americans fortunate enough to have powers must either work for the US government or go underground. Today, the legendary Patriot leads the rebellious Defiance against his former masters, the sanctioned super-powered operatives known collectively as Delta Prime. When the Primers capture Patriot, his friends must find a way to break into the toughest super-prison ever created-or watch him be executed before the entire world.


Coxblocker (2009)


Plot Outline: William Cox (Grace) meets his ideal woman, only to find his advances continually blocked by her ex-boyfriend/current best friend (Scott), who is trying to find a way to win her back.

Cast and Crew: Seann William Scott, Topher Grace

COED’s Take: Being that we’ve all had it happen to us the plot seems catchy, but there is a 99% chance the movie is going to blow. If Sean William Scott can bring the heat and find a way to make this thing work it could be a hot dorm room DVD similar to Just Friends.


Angels & Demons (2009)


Plot Outline: Angels and Demons was the reclusive author’s third novel after he gave up his job as an English teacher. It tells the story of Langdon’s brush with a shadowy secret society, the Illuminati, and his frantic quest for the world’s most powerful energy source, in the company of a beautiful Italian physicist whose father, a brilliant physicist, has been murdered.

Cast and Crew: Tom Hanks, Naomi Watts

COED’s Take: Most people that have read Dan Brown’s books feel Angels and Demons (the book) is better than The Da Vinci Code. If this movie is written and directed well it has the cast, plot and setting to be a legendary adventure film.


Friday the 13th (2009)


Plot Outline: Looking to reopen a camp for special need kids a group of councilors encounter a snag in their plans when an unknown person begins to pick them off one by one.

Cast and Crew: Odette Yustman

COED’s Take: What?! Friday the 13th is included in the list of most anticipated movies of 2009?! We included Friday the 13th because it will be a bust or a classic, nothing in between. Odette Yustman (Cloverfield) is a rising star, and if they choose to make it a traditional roll-em-out slasher film it will end up cheesy and flop… but if they go the direction of Batman Returns and make it a dark introduction to the classic character the movie could do well.


G.I. Joe (2009)


[click photo for more info]

Plot Outline: An elite military unit comprised of special operatives known as G.I. Joe, operating out of The Pit, takes on an evil organization led by a notorious arms dealer.

Cast and Crew: Channing Tatum, Sienna Miller, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Dennis Quaid, Rachel Nichols, Ray Park, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Marlon Wayans (rumored)

COED’s Take: I am very, very nervous to see how G.I. Joe, a staple of my young childhood, ends up. Transformers was decent at best (why does every Michael Bay movie resort to Armageddon-esque “the world’s gonna end” type storylines?), and a live action version of the show has me skeptical.

Still, if the powers that be listen to the fans instead of simply rebranding old product, we could have a straight-up killer.


Halo (2009)


Plot Outline: After they crash-land on an artificial ring-world called “Halo”, a navy captain, his surviving marines, and a chemically-and-surgically-enhanced supersoldier named John-117 “Master Chief” must find out what the Covenant, the genocidal alien race they are at war with, are looking for on the ring. However, Halo holds more secrets than either side imagined.


Old School Dos (2009)


Plot Outline: Mitch, Beanie and Frank return for more laughs as they open the fraternity doors to a new generation of college students.

Cast and Crew: The original cast is back for more.

COED’s Take: Frank the Tank. There’s nothing more to be said…other than it being a worthy sequel or shameless cash in. Still…Frank the Tank! Here’s hoping that Blue’s ghost makes a cameo.


X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009)


[click photo for more info]

Plot Outline: Wolverine lives a mutant life, seeks revenge against Victor Creed (who will later become Sabertooth) for the death of his girlfriend, and ultimately ends up going through the mutant Weapon X program.


Playboy (2009)


[click photo for more info]

Plot Outline: A biography of the life of Playboy magazine founder Hugh Hefner.

Cast and Crew: Leonardo DiCaprio…Hugh Hefner (Rumored), Brett Radner - director

COED’s Take: John Hoffman is writing the scripti and Brett Radner will direct what I feel could be a smash hit in 2009. Hugh Hefner is a living media legend, but not many people know how he got to where he is today. The movie will have its fair share of hardships and inspiring moments but we all know it’s gonna have a $50 million opening weekend because of the boobs.

But seriously - if Leo signs on, it’s a wrap.


The Brazilian Job (2009)


Plot Outline: Charlie Croker and his fellow crew of expert thieves head to Rio de Janeiro to pull off another heist in this follow up to The Italian Job.

Cast and Crew: Charlize Theron, Mark Wahlberg, Jason Statham, Seth Green, Mos Def


Conquistador (2009)


Plot Outline: The story of 16th century explorer Hernan Cortes (Banderas) and his mission to bring about the demise of the Aztec empire.

Cast and Crew: Antonio Banderas

COED’s Take: Historical movies will be a major theme of 2009 and this one should be the best of the breed. The budget will allow it to be shot on location so expect many scenic shots and plenty of Banderas’s patented romantico flare.


Sin City 2 (2009)


Plot Outline: In the dark bowels of Sin City, Dwight plans to have his vengeance against the woman who betrayed him, Ava Lord, while Nancy is trying to cope with Hartigan’s death.

Cast and Crew: Johnny Depp (rumored), Jessica Alba, Mickey Rourke, Rachel Weisz, Clive Owen, Dwight McCarthy, Brittany Murphy, Rosario Dawson, Antonio Banderas (rumored), Michael Clarke Duncan, Michael Madsen


1776 (2009)


Plot Outline: A look at how General George Washington led the war of independence against the powerful British army in 1776.

Cast and Crew: Tom Hanks - Producer

COED’s Take: Another historical winner for 2009. Expect 1776 to portrayed the American Revolution in a a way that has yet to be seen. The book by David McCollugh is one of the best I’ve ever read and although its being released through HBO we can expect this one to have a huge following.


The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus (2009)


[click photo for more info]

Plot Outline: A traveling theater company gives its audience much more than they were expecting.

Cast and Crew: Heath Ledger, Johnny Depp, Colin Farrell and Jude Jaw.

COED’s Take: Heath Ledger died during the filming of this movie and it’s rumored that Johnny Depp, Colin Farrell and Jude Jaw will fill in for the fallen actor. Due to its unfortunate circumstance, it should be successful for the right reasons, hopefully.


Inglorious ****s (2009)


[click photo for more info]

Plot Outline: A band of US soldiers facing death by firing squad for their misdeeds are given a chance to save themselves - by heading into the perilous no-man’s lands of Nazi-occupied France on a suicide mission for the Allies.

Cast and Crew: Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Babe Buchinsky, Quentin Tarantino

Quentin Tarantino has been working on Inglorious ****s since Jackie Brown and Kill Bill were in production, and during his publicity rounds for Grindhouse stated the script is the best he’s ever done. Strong words from a strong personality - but if anybody can deliver inappropriate zingers in a war movie, or (gasp!) hard-hitting dialog that doesn’t let up, it would be Tarantino.


Arrested Development (2009)


Ever since the epilogue of Arrested Development, where Ron Howard, the show’s narrator, revealed a tantalizing pun (did “Maybe a movie” mean

Maeby, a Movie?), fans of The Best F***ing Show of All Time Ever have wanted - nay, demanded - more hot Bluth action. And it’s on the way…maybe.

Rumors have been flying about an Arrested Development movie, and it couldn’t start production at a better time: Superbad and Juno have propelled Michael Cera to stardom while many of the shows’ alumni not only remain successful, but enthusiastic about revisiting the project - if it happens. Mitch Hurwitz, creator of Arrested Development, has blown hot and cold on the subject since the show was canceled back in 2006. We can only hope that fans and AD newbies rally up and let it be known that yes, an Arrested Development is wanted. Can you hear us, Mitch? Hello? Annyong?


Terminator Salvation: The Future Begins (2009)


[click photo for more info]

Plot Outline: After Skynet has destroyed much of humanity in a nuclear holocaust, a group of survivors led by John Connor (Bale) struggles to keep the machines from finishing the job.

Cast and Crew: Christian Bale, Josh Brolin, Sam Worthington; Director - McG.

COED’s Take: Christian Bale in a big budget reassessment of a dying franchise? Say it ain’t so! If it worked for Batman it will work for Terminator.

Few things:

Is Arrested Development offical yet?

1776 sounds amazing. May have to get HBO just for this.

Inglorious ****s = Dirty Dozen 2009... pass.

Quentin Tarantino did say in an interview recently that this is the best script hes ever written. Pretty big claim....I'm psyched for it, they've recently approached Brad Pitt for a role. Personally, I think it would be amazing if somehow someway Harrison Ford took a lead role in a film like this as well.

You can add Metal Gear Solid to the list Video Game Movies coming out next year.

Quite seriously, MGS is my favorite video game franchise. So if they make it in to a movie they have to get top-notch people for it....I've heard that Hideo Kojima would want to be involved in directing or in a lead role for the film if it gets made. I just don't know how they could condense the MGS story into a 2 hour film, I'd love it if they got Peter Jackson to direct it:D
