Cedar Boys - A new Aussie thriller from debut writer/director Seehat Caradee. Normally I am wary of writer/directors because they usually seem so self-indulgent, but word on Cedar Boys has been exceptionally positive. The only names in the cast are Rachael Taylor (2:37 and Transformers) and Martin Henderson (Little Fish).
Lake Mungo - An scary Aussie movie - filmed as a mockumentary - about a dead teenager and her possible haunting of her family. It's been a while since I saw a good scary flick at the cinema so I can't wait to catch this one.
My Sister's Keeper - Oh gawd, how bad does this look?
Public Enemies - Johnny Depp, Christian Bale and Marion Cotillard star in Michael Mann's take on the life of American gangster, John Dillinger. Definitely wanted to see this a few months ago, but my excitement has dampened. I'll still see it eventually though, of course.
Rudo & Cursi - A reteaming of Gael Garcia Bernal and Diego Luna in this Mexican film about two rival soccer players. It is directed by Carlos Cuaron, Alfonso's brother - and some time writing partner.
Knowing - Nicolas Cage and Rose Byrne star in this sci-fi action film from Alex Proyas. I wouldn't say it looks "good", but I was definitely intrigued. Was filmed in Melbourne, too!
Watchmen - Sometimes I wonder why I bother going to the movies sometimes for movies such as Zach Snyder's Watchmen. Everybody knows it's just going to be released on DVD in a new "director's cut" months later, anyway. I don't remember writing about this film, but I didn't particularly care for it, but I also didn't not like it. It was just sort of... there.
There is also a high amount of direct-to-DVD titles that nobody has ever heard of getting a release. Passage to Zarahemla? Sand Serpents? Kill Switch? Yikes.
