These are some of the more visually interesting posters of upcoming movie releases that caught my eye. Enjoy!

Laid to Rest
Synopsis: A terrifying story of a young girl who wakes up in a casket with a traumatic head injury and no memory of her identity. She quickly realizes she was abducted by a Deranged Serial Murderer and in an isolated rural town she must survive the night and outsmart the technologically inclined killer who is hellbent on finishing what he started.
Release Date: April 21, 2009 (DVD)
The Informers
Synopsis: Published in 1995, the collection of loosely connected short stories by Bret Easton Ellis, captures a week in L.A. in 1983, featuring movie executives, rock stars, a vampire and other morally challenged characters in adventures laced with sex, drugs and violence.
Release Date: May 1, 2009
Comments: I grew up reading Bret Easton Ellis’ books, American Psycho and Less Than Zero being personal favorites (though I also have a soft spot for The Rules of Attraction). So, it goes without saying, that I am really looking forward to this film as well.
The Horsemen
Synopsis: Aidan Breslin is a bitter detective emotionally distanced from his two young sons following the untimely death of his devoted wife. While investigating a series of murders of rare violence, he discovers a terrifying link between himself and the suspects in a chain of murders that seem to be based on the Biblical prophecies concerning the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse: War, Famine, Pestilence, and Death.
Release Date: March 13, 2009 (?)
Dark Mirror
Synopsis: A photographer moves her family into a strange old house, where she discovers an alternate reality reflected in the glass… A dark reality that is closing in on her.
Release Date: 2008 (?)
Orphan
Synopsis: A husband and wife who recently lost their baby adopt a 9-year-old girl who is not nearly as innocent as she claims to be.
Release Date: July 24, 2009
Comments: I saw the trailer for this one over at MySpace and got REALLY excited. It looks so creepy; a throwback to the “olden days,” before everything went politically-correct, when movies were allowed to have sinister children. Can’t wait to see it!
Nightmares in Red, White and Blue: The Evolution of the American Horror Film
Synopsis: Visit the website
Release Date: 2009
G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra
Synopsis: The story is set at Brussels-based GIJOE, an acronym for the Global Integrated Joint Operating Entity, and revolves around an international co-ed force of operatives who use high-tech equipment to battle Cobra, an evil org headed by a Scottish arms dealer.
Release Date: August 7, 2009
Comments: Okay, I know I’ll be the odd man out by admitting this, but I was never a big G.I. Joe fan, so I don’t really have much interest in the movie (which is sure to be a hit, what with the cult toy following and the whole “God Bless America” rhetoric I’m sure it will incite. However, I do dig Channing Tatum (he plays ‘Duke‘). He’s pretty.
Fighting
Synopsis: In New York City, a young counterfeiter is introduced to the world of underground street fighting by a seasoned scam artist, who becomes his manager on the bare-knuckling brawling circuit.
Release Date: April 24, 2009
Comments: Channing Tatum stars. Need I say more? (BTW, it looks like Fight Club Revisited)
G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra
Synopsis: *see above
Release Date: *see above
Fast & Furious
Synopsis: As he is released from prison, Brian O’Conner teams up with Dominic Toretto work with the feds to bring down a heroin importer by infiltrating his operation.
Release Date: April 3, 2009
Comments: I love me some Vin Diesel. The total package: good-looking, built, smart, great voice. *sigh*
X-Men Origins: Wolverine
Synopsis: Wolverine lives a mutant life, seeks revenge against Victor Creed (who will later become Sabertooth) for the death of his girlfriend, and ultimately ends up going through the mutant Weapon X program.
Release Date: May 1, 2009
Comments: Not really that into the X-Men movies, but this one has a lot to offer me: Hugh Jackman lookin’ supah buff (OW!), Lieb Schreiber (LOVE him!) AND Ryan Reynolds (as ‘Deadpool‘)! The trifecta! May not see it in the theater, but will definitely buy it on DVD.
One Week
Synopsis: Chronicles the motorcycle trip of Ben Tyler as he rides from Toronto to Tofino, British Columbia. Ben stops at landmarks that are both iconic and idiosyncratic on his quest to find meaning in his life.
Release Date: March 6, 2009 (Canada)
Comments: Don’t care about the movie, but love me some Joshua Jackson. ROWR!

i still don’t understand what is the appeal of Vin Diesel — it’s gotta be either his gravelly voice or his cool name
