from werewolves.com: Emily Blunt Talks The Wolfman
Taylor Lautner and Chaske Spencer aren’t the only hot wolves that we’ll see on the big screen in 2010 and much before we see the Eclipse in June, we’ll get to see other big names such as Emily Blunt, Anthony Hopkins, and Benicio Del Toro either take on wolf forms or fight them. All of this will happen in the movie The Wolfman, which is due in theaters in February 2010. In this werewolf movie that’s set early in the 1800s, a brother returns to his hometown in England upon his brother’s fiance’s insistence, to investigate the disappearance of his brother. Upon arriving, he and the rest of the family quickly find out about all the horrors that lay there, and just how both brothers fit into it all.
Q: You have a couple of big projects coming out in 2010, with The Wolfman and Gulliver’s Travels. What’s it like working in such fantastical worlds?
Emily Blunt: It’s funny because The Wolfman was a different kind of genre for me. The thing with The Wolfman is that it’s quite hard to do those genres sometimes because you want to have the characters react in a very real way to something that’s so otherworldly and supernatural that you’ve never had experience with that yourself.”

from Ace Show Biz: New ‘Daybreakers’ Clip: Vampire Attack
“Daybreakers” unleashes the monster in new clip. When a mysterious plague has swept over the earth in year 2019, majority of world’s population have turned into vampires. These blood-sucking creatures are hunting the humans which are now endangered species.

Starring Ethan Hawke as Edward, Isabel Lucas as Alison and Willem Dafoe as Elvis, “Daybreakers” will be released in theaters across U.S. on January 8.

By Michael Cieply at the New York Times: Ready for 2010, Some Films Shot Way Back When
Go to a new movie in early 2010, and chances are good you’ll end up with an eyeful of 2008. And the star you see promoting that film may look a wee bit older than the one up there on the screen.
Thanks to some deliberate scheduling bumps and the lingering effect of Hollywood’s long-passed writers’ strike, a surprising number of the new year’s first releases —from major studios like Paramount and Universal as well as from minimajors like Lionsgate and the Weinstein Company — were actually shot about two years ago.
Even older is “Daybreakers,” a futuristic vampire thriller starring Ethan Hawke and Willem Dafoe, set for release in early January. As the film was being shot in 2007, Heath Ledger was working on his Oscar-winning performance in “The Dark Knight,” and Michael Jackson was nearly two years away from announcing a comeback tour that would become the subject of a posthumous movie long since released by Sony Pictures.

Alice in Wonderland: In Disney’s Burtonized version of the classic children’s story, Johnny Depp plays the Mad Hatter, Anne Hathaway is in a dream-entranced White Queen and Helena Bonham Carter is the big-headed Red Queen. Alice has pretty much forgotten about her first trip to Wonderland, so it’s a whole new adventure for her in her return, and she’s taking us along for the journey.
Clash of the Titans: Director Louis Leterrier from Incredible Hunk resurrects the 1981 mythological adventure Clash of the Titans.
