A sneak peek at 2010's movies

January 16, 2010 |  2:52 pm


In 2010, Hollywood films will go down the rabbit hole with a Mad Hatter, ascend to the magical realm of Mount Olympus where mighty Zeus still rules, and revisit Sherwood Forest where, this time, a former "Gladiator" is the one notching the arrows. Fans of the fantastic will be able to pick their pack when it comes to werewolves, suit up with a familiar Marvel superhero or watch Angelina Jolie reload in another spy vs. spy adventure.

It's also a big year for sword-fighting with "Percy Jackson & the Olympians" in February, "Clash of the Titans," starring "Avatar's" Sam Worthington, on March 26, and "Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time," starring Jake Gyllenhaal and based on the video game, on May 28. Will one of those magic movies become the box-office heir to "Harry Potter"? That $5.3-billion franchise is back a week before Thanksgiving with "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I." Other returning franchises include "Iron Man 2" (in May, with Mickey Rourke as the villain) and "Toy Story 3" (in June, with Michael Keaton added as boy-toy Ken), "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse" (June) and "Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader" (December). Here is a  peek at some of the year's highlights.
