Paramount Pictures has released the 2008 preview with a look at some of their biggest films arriving throughout 2008. They've got quite an incredible line-up and some exciting new pictures to go along with it. Paramount is the one studio (along with Warner Brothers) that seems to know how to do it right, from marketing to choice in films. In 2007 they released Transformers, Disturbia, and Zodiac, just to name a few, and in July they had already passed the $1 billion mark. Read onwards for some new photos from Iron Man, Cloverfield, The Ruins, and Revolutionary Road, all arriving in 2008.
Paramount Pictures and Marvel Entertainment's big screen adaptation of Marvel's legendary Super Hero Iron Man will launch into theaters on May 2, 2008. Oscar nominee Robert Downey Jr. stars as Tony Stark/Iron Man in the story of a billionaire industrialist and genius inventor who is kidnapped and forced to build a devastating weapon. Instead, using his intelligence and ingenuity, Tony builds a high-tech suit of armor and escapes captivity. When he uncovers a nefarious plot with global implications, he dons his powerful armor and vows to protect the world as Iron Man. The film also stars Oscar winner Gwyneth Paltrow and Oscar nominees Terrence Howard and Jeff Bridges and is directed by Jon Favreau.

Five young New Yorkers throw their friend a going-away party the night that a monster the size of a skyscraper descends upon the city. Told from the point of view of their video camera, the film is a document of their attempt to survive the most surreal, horrifying event of their lives.
Cloverfield arrives in theaters on January 18th, 2008.
Based on the terrifying best-seller by Scott Smith, The Ruins follows a group of friends who become entangled in a brutal struggle for survival after visiting a remote archaeological dig in the Mexican jungle – where they discover something deadly living among the ruins. The Ruins stars Jonathan Tucker ("The Black Donnellys"), Jena Malone (Pride and Prejudice), Shawn Ashmore (X-Men: The Last Stand), Laura Ramsey (She's the Man) and Joe Anderson (Across the Universe). The film is directed by Carter Smith from a screenplay by Scott B. Smith.
The Ruins arrives in theaters on April 11th, 2008.
Based on the celebrated novel by Richard Yates, director Sam Mendes' Revolutionary Road is the story of a young couple (Oscar nominees Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet) trying to find fulfillment in an age of conformity. Trapped in a world of encoded convention, they dream without faith, as lies and self-deceptions build to explosive consequences.
Revolutionary Road arrives in theaters on December 19th, 2008.

My name is Yourmom, I live to trash hard workers and make stupid comments from my mom's basement. I find fault in all anyone does as I contribute nothing to society except criticize other peoples work. I love your site, keep up the good work.
