There’s been a lot of talk about how 2010 has been an awful year for film. In fact earlier this year in the Wall Street Journal, novelist and screenwriter Joe Queenan dubbed it the worst movie year ever. While we don’t necessary agree (just look at The King’s Speech, Toy Story 3, Inception, The Kids Are All Right, The Social Network, and Black Swan), we do know that the upcoming year looks even more promising. After the jump check out ten of the films that already have us excited for 2011, and be sure to add anything that we’ve missed in the comments.
The Green Hornet, directed by Michel Gondry (1/14)
There are numerous comic book-inspired flicks headed into theaters this year (and two of them happen to have the word “green” in the title), but as this one is directed by the delightfully quirky Michel Gondry and features Seth Rogen as Britt Reid, its party boy turned superhero, we think it has the most potential to surprise us. In other words, it will either be really amazing or totally awful. Watch the trailer below.
