- Never Back Down: Think The Karate Kid Goes to Fight Club; with all the shirtless hotties beating the crap out of each other in the trailer and a poster described by Imdb as resembling "an anti-meth ad you'd see at Castro Street station", this just may be 2008's first entry into the "Celluloid Closet". Djimon Hounsou takes on the Mr. Migayi role.
- Funny Games: Naomi Watts and Tim Roth play a married couple terrorized by a pair of preppy psychos in Michael Haneke's American remake of his own 1997 German thriller.
- Doomsday: Yet another post-apocolyptic sci fi thriller about a London decimated by a lethal virus; 28 Weeks Later, anyone?
- Dr. Seuss' Horton Hears a Who!: Following the live action messes done to previous Dr. Seuss properties (the Grinch, the Cat in the Hat), this one has a lot to make up for; however, (stunt) casting Jim Carrey and Steve Carell does not bode well for the poetic pachyderm.
