Most Anticipated Movies of 2009

Posted by foreualways on January 9, 2009

The film industry had a record year in 2008, bringing in an estimated
$9.8 billion at the North American box office. It will be a tough act
to follow, but 2009 promises to deliver as many — if not more — big
movies. There are two big movies that were supposed to come out this
past holiday season: the latest "Harry Potter" and the new take on
"Star Trek." A wide variety of animated films are coming, from the
latest in 3D digital technology to Disney’s return to traditional
animation. And, of course, there will be sequels (and prequels) galore.
