Movies, movies, movies. That's what the year 2008 is going to be. For starters, sequels are heating up the big screen this month such as  National Treasure: Book of Secrets, and Aliens vs. Predator - Requiem. Both have already been listed as box office hits over the weekend. Stephen King's The Mist made it big on the silver screen as well.
Sequel or not, movie fanatics are sure to get high with all the movies that are yet to be released. To give you something to get excited about, here's the list for this year's most anticipated movies.

1. Cloverfield
Shrouded in mystery since the untitled teaser trailer appeared last summer, producer J.J. Abrams' modern take on the monster movie has had people everywhere buzzing about just what it is that's tearing New York City apart.

 After surprising a lot of people with the success of Rocky Balboa, writer/director/star Sylvester Stallone goes for the one-two punch, bringing back his other iconic character, John Rambo, for a rescue mission in the Burmese jungle.

3. Dr. Seuss' Horton Hears a Who
 For the first animated feature based on a book by Dr. Seuss, the creators of Ice Age have recruited two comic heavyweights to lend their voices: Jim Carrey, as the elephant Horton, and Steve Carell as the microscopic fellow only Horton can hear.
4. Iron Man
 Marvel Comics' steel-plated superhero is coming to the big screen, with a stellar cast and amazing effects. Robert Downey Jr. brings humor and humanity to the role of Tony Stark, the billionaire who builds and wears the indestructible armor.
5. Speed Racer
The Wachowski Brothers, the creative duo behind The Matrix, return to directing with an altogether different visual extravaganza, the live-action version of a classic anime series. The trailer promises eye-popping sights and a whole lot of speed.
6. The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian
 The four Pevensie children return to the magical world of Narnia to find 1,300 years have passed and an evil king rules the land. They will need the help of the mighty lion Aslan to restore the young Prince Caspian to his rightful place on the throne.
7. Sex and the City
 Four years after their series left the air, Carrie, Charlotte, Miranda and Samantha are hitting the silver screen. The teaser trailer shows Sarah Jessica Parker looking fabulous in haute couture, her underwear, and (gasp!) a wedding dress.

 From the director of Finding Nemo, Pixar's next groundbreaking animated film tells the story of a little who spends centuries cleaning up garbage all by himself who finally gets a chance to see what the galaxy has to offer by way of adventure.
9. Wanted
 Angelina Jolie is back in action as a mystery woman named Fox who indoctrinates James McAvoy into a secret fellowship of assassins so highly trained they bend the very laws of physics, with Morgan Freeman as their gun-wielding guru.
10. The Dark Knight
 Continuing the story of director Christopher Nolan's Batman Begins, Christian Bale returns as the Caped Crusader, this time facing his arch-nemesis, the scarred and scary Joker, played with psychotic menace by Heath Ledger.
