One of the fastest ways to get me curious about a movie is if it’s a reworking of a fairy tale. Beastly is Beauty and the Beast set in modern times, specifically in a high school. Newcomer Alex Pettyfer is a cocky guy who is cursed with ugliness by a witch, Mary-Kate Olsen (Squee! Perfect casting, in my opinion; no sarcasm here). Vanessa Hudgens (High School Musical) acts as the modern-day Belle. Expected U.S. release date: March 18, 2011

Director Steven Soderbergh (Ocean’s 11) brings us the documentary, And Everything is Going Fine. It’s his tribute to the late Spalding Gray, monologue extraordinaire. Expected U.S. release date: unknown

Another trailer for The Fighter has been released. The sneak peek of the boxing drama is still kind of mediocre, but the actors are gaining traction this coming awards season, which makes me want to see it. Mark Wahlberg (Max Payne), Christian Bale (The Dark Knight), Amy Adams (Junebug), and Leo (Conviction) are all garnering nominations. In theaters now.

The Beaver is an upcoming dramedy with Mel Gibson (The Patriot) as the leading man. Gibson is trying to get his life on track by using a beaver puppet.

Jamie Bell (Jumper) and Judi Dench (Die Another Day) round out the cast. Expected U.S. release date: March 11, 2011

Who would have thought Saoirse Ronan (Atonement) is an action star? In Hanna, she’s an assassin trained by her own father (Eric Bana from Troy). After her kill order fails, she has to go on the run from people like Cate Blanchett (Babel). There’s a pretty big reveal in the trailer, but hopefully, the actual film has more plot twists in store for us. Director: Joe Wright (Pride and Prejudice). Expected U.S. release date: April 8, 2011

Rio, an animated movie, follows a macaw who can’t fly (Jesse Eisenberg, The Social Network) as he goes on an adventure with the opposite sex (Anne Hathaway, Rachel Getting Married).
