Sundance 2010: RT's 10 Most Anticipated Movies

Five or six years ago, the Sundance Film Festival was more famous for showing dozens of worthy, politically correct movies that instantly disappeared than the odd breakout hits that it spawned, which previously included the likes of The Blair Witch Project, Reservoir Dogs and El Mariachi. Recently, however, the festival has become an excellent launching ground for low-budget movies from across the world, with the 2009 event showcasing the likes of British indie hits Moon and In The Loop and starting the awards momentum for two very different rites of passage movies: An Education and Precious, both tipped for Academy Award/BAFTA success.

RT investigates Buried, starring Ryan Reynolds, The Extra Man, Christopher Morris's controversial Four Lions, Joseph Gordon-Levitt starrer Hesher, Howl, Michael Winterbottom's The Killer Inside Me, Jeffrey Blitz's Lucky, Vincenzo Natali's Splice, Sympathy for Delicious and Kristen Stewart's rumoured nude scene in Welcome to the Rileys.More…

What do the critics have to say? Couples Retreat contains some of the funniest actors in the business, and is set in a lush island paradise. Sounds like the recipe for a good time, right? Unfortunately, the critics say Couples Retreat is essentially a series of gags sorely in need of some over-arching comic discipline. Jason Bateman and Kristen Bell star as a couple whose relationship is in trouble, so they invite a group of married friends (including Vince Vaughn, Jon Farveau, Kristen Davis, and Malin Ackerman) to a resort for their counseling sessions -- and it turns out the whole gang is required to undergo treatment as well.
