Video Blog: 2010 Movie Preview

We finally have gotten through the “best ofs” and are looking forward to what 2010 has to offer. Below are some of the films (and their trailers) that we are looking forward to. Since we’ve inundated you with a lot of text recently, I figured I’d let the trailers for these films do the talking.

  1. Looking forward to Robin Hood. I’ve seen several people play this role; Errol Flynn, Richard Green etc. but Crowe is a different animal.
    Surprised they haven’t come up with an Oceans 14 or one of the several new Bourne books written by Lustbader.
