Release Date: November 06, 2009
Starring: Benicio Del Toro, Anthony Hopkins, Emily Blunt, Art Malik, Hugo Weaving
Director: Joe Johnston
Writer: Andrew Kevin Walker
The Wolfman got rid of its original director at the last minute (One Hour Photo’s excellent Mark Romanek) and replaced him with the bland Joe Johnston (Jurassic Park III). The early footage out of Comic-Con was ‘meh’, and the fact the release date has been pushed back several months is never a good sign. But it has a superb cast, a screenwriter capable of greatness, and make-up effects by the maestro Rick Baker, so hopefully it will surprise us. And it’s set in the 1880s, which is a brave choice.
Release Date: November 25, 2009
Starring: Cameron Diaz, Frank Langella, James Marsden
Director: Richard Kelly
Writer: Richard Kelly
Richard Kelly, of Donnie Darko fame, plays it safe with this twisty Twilight Zone-inspired premise. A young couple is gifted with a mysterious box that will reward them with $1m every time they press the button inside, but each time they do, someone in the world will die. Would you?
