The success or failure of Snow and Green now rests in each other’s hands. Green’s duty to get the rampant rocker to the historic Greek Theatre in time becomes a taxing task.

2. Shrek Forever After | May 21st, 2010, Director: Mike Mitchell
Faithful followers of the gregarious green ogre might be sad to learn that Shrek Forever After is the final installment of the famous series, but perhaps happy to hear that it is shot in 3-D. Megan Fox joins celebrity voices Mike Myers, Cameron Diaz, Eddie Murphy, Antonio Banderas and Jane Lynch in this epic concluding chapter. When the persuasive Rumpelstiltskin sways Shrek to sign a misleading contract, he enters a nightmarish world where Rumpelstiltskin is king and everyone he knows and loves sees him as a stranger.

3. Sex and the City 2 | May 28th 2010, Director: Michael Patrick King
Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda strut back to the big screen in high heels for this keenly anticipated sequel. Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis are taking viewers to the streets of New York City and beyond for an entertaining adventure. There will be just as much fashion and frenzy as the first film – and yes, Mr. Big (Chris Noth) will also be making it onto the big screen. Directed once again with an original screenplay by Michael Patrick King, Sex and the City fans should head out early to get seats at the debut.

4. Jonah Hex | June 18th 2010, Director: Jimmy Hayward
Hollywood is giving birth to its second bounty hunter this spring and this one has a little more edge than Gerard Butler. Based on the DC comic series, Jonah Hex, played by Josh Brolin, is a ruthless Wild West bounty hunter capable of capturing just about anyone he comes across. The story is set in the late 1800s, with Hex, who is balancing the divide of the real and unnatural world, asked to hunt down terrorist Quentin Turnbull (John Malkovich) in exchange for his own emancipation. The twist? Turnbull is Hex’s oldest nemesis and isn’t giving up without a fight. The West becomes a little wilder when Hex’s love interest Leila (Megan Fox) walks in. Hex’s bond with the brothel worker is the closest human link he has.

5. Robin Hood | May 14, 2010, Director: Ridley Scott
Academy Award winners Russell Crowe and Cate Blanchett unveil the untold sides of the iconic story Robin Hood. This movie takes you back in time to 13th century England where Robin is an archer poised to rescue the disadvantaged town of Nottingham and bring forth justice. In the meantime, he finds his heart beating for a local widow, played by Blanchett. This is Crowe and director Ridley Scott’s fifth film together; they have collaborated previously on Gladiator, A Good Year, American Gangster and Body of Lies. Combine an esteemed leading cast with a legend that’s never been laid to rest, and it looks like Robin Hood could mark another good year for Crowe and Scott.

6. The A-Team | June 11, 2010, Director: Joe Carnahan
A-listers Bradley Cooper and Liam Neeson put a modern spin on the popular tongue-in-cheek ’80s action adventure series The A-Team. Framed for a crime they didn’t commit, a group of four former war veterans aim to clear their names. After managing to escape from a high-security prison, The A-Team embark on an adventurous journey and work as soldiers for hire while trying to avoid the wrath of Capt. Charisa Sosa (Jessica Biel.) Filmed on Canadian soil in Vancouver, this adaptation of the iconic American television series is one of this season’s most-awaited thrillers.

7. Letters to Juliet | May 14, 2010, Director: Gary Winick
There really isn’t a more romantic movie setting than the city in which Romeo met his beloved. Letters to Juliet is the story of a young woman (Amanada Seyfried), who travels to Verona, Italy, where the broken-hearted leave notes at an historic brick wall asking Juliet for advice. When she finds an intriguing letter from a lady that dates back to the 1950s, she feels the need to intervene. Her do-good mission sparks a climactic domino effect that sweeps both women off their feet. The director of 13 Going on 30 continues to test the limits of our imagination, causing us to reconsider life’s coincidences.

8. Knight and Day | June 25, 2010, Director: James Mangold
Vanilla Sky duo Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz have reunited for what will likely be the action-comedy blockbuster of the summer. Though the plot of Knight and Day is a little less perplexing than the 2001 Cameron Crowe mystery, it certainly still has its twists and turns. Two fugitives (Diaz and Cruise) embark on a life threatening action filled adventure. Not knowing what to believe, who to trust and balancing coalitions with deceit are just a few of the major themes in this turbulent crusade.
