It's almost December, which means that 2010 is already starting to sneak out from under the covers, before putting its clothes on and disappearing forever. That in turn means that the studios are starting to send out their promotional materials for their 2011 slates. Between these and the 2011 previews from the likes of Empire and EW, we're going to get a lot of first looks at pictures in the next few weeks, so fans of film stills, synopses, or movie blogs desperately trying to pad out otherwise thin posts should keep their eyes peeled in the run up to Christmas.

First up are Warner Bros, who've dropped stills and images for some of their comedies of next year and it's a line-up that the studio are likely feeling bullish about. The diciest prospect is the Farrelly Brothers' "Hall Pass," after the lukewarm trailer a few weeks back, but between Jason Sudeikis and Richard Jenkins, it may prove a pleasant surprise. Next up is the juggernaut "The Hangover 2," which sees the original cast reunited in Thailand, swiftly followed by the romantic comedy "Something Borrowed," with Kate Hudson, Ginnifer Goodwin and John Krasinski, and the very promising "Horrible Bosses"

Below, you can find synopses and images for all four, as well as a synopsis for Steven Soderbergh's "Contagion," which is currently filming, and hence doesn't yet have an image. That film hits theaters on October 21st, preceded by "Hall Pass" on February 25th, "The Hangover 2" on May 26th, "Something Borrowed" on June 10th and "Horrible Bosses" on July 29th. Check them all out after the jump.


"Hall Pass"
Rick (Owen Wilson) and Fred (Jason Sudeikis) are best friends who have a lot in common, including the fact that they have each been married for many years. But when the two men begin to show signs of restlessness at home, their wives (Jenna Fischer, Christina Applegate) take a bold approach to revitalizing their marriages: granting them a “hall pass,” one week of freedom to do whatever they want...no questions asked. At first, it sounds like a dream come true for Rick and Fred. But it isn’t long before they discover that their expectations of the single life— and themselves—are completely, and hilariously, out of sync with reality.


"The Hangover 2"
In the follow-up to the record-breaking hit comedy “The Hangover,” Phil (Bradley Cooper), Stu (Ed Helms), Alan (Zach Galifianakis) and Doug (Justin Bartha) travel to exotic Thailand for Stu’s wedding. After the unforgettable bachelor party in Las Vegas, Stu is taking no chances and has opted for a safe, subdued pre-wedding brunch. However, things don’t always go as planned. What happens in Vegas may stay in Vegas, but what happens in Bangkok can’t even be imagined.



"Something Borrowed"
Rachel (Ginnifer Goodwin) is a talented attorney at a top New York law firm, a generous and loyal friend and, unhappily, still single...as her engaged best friend Darcy (Kate Hudson) is constantly reminding her. But after one drink too many at her 30th birthday party, perpetual good girl Rachel unexpectedly ends up in bed with the guy she’s had a crush on since law school, Dex (Colin Egglesfield), who just happens to be Darcy’s fiancé. When Rachel and Darcy’s lifelong friendship collides with true love, it leads to unexpected complications and potentially explosive romantic revelations. Meanwhile, Ethan (John Krasinski), who has been Rachel’s constant confidante and sometimes conscience, has been harboring a secret of his own, and Marcus (Steve Howey), an irrepressible womanizer, can’t keep his mind out of the gutter or his hands off any girl within reach.


"Horrible Bosses"
For Nick (Jason Bateman), Kurt (Jason Sudeikis) and Dale (Charlie Day), the only thing that would make the daily grind more tolerable would be to grind their intolerable bosses (Kevin Spacey, Colin Farrell, Jennifer Aniston) into dust. Quitting is not an option, so, with the benefit of a few-too-many drinks and some dubious advice from a hustling ex-con (Jamie Foxx), the three friends devise a convoluted and seemingly foolproof plan to rid themselves of their respective employers...permanently. There’s only one problem: even the best laid plans are only as foolproof as the brains behind them.

"Contagion"
“Contagion” follows the rapid progress of a lethal airborne virus that kills within days. As the fast-moving epidemic grows, the worldwide medical community races to find a cure and control the panic that spreads faster than the virus itself. At the same time, ordinary people struggle to survive in a society coming apart.

    Thousands times better than what Hangover 1,2 can ever be.
    After quite i think i would be seeing decent comedy ,hope this doesn't turn out to pathetically overrated as Hangover and other trash what Hollywood has been dishing out recently.
    Avatar, Predators and to some extend Machete(baring first 25 of movie) all trash.
    Only decent Hollywood i can remember District 9, serious man, Fantastic Mr Fox.
    Studios killed an excellent franchise spider man with last installment.
    According in the third spider man film they should have killed Mary jane and in fourth Spider man.
    Just saw the trailer of cowboy and alien , Daniel Craig as Cow boy. It sucked.
    I am quite sure the studio with their penchants for wider audience and their obsession with PG13 would kill Hollywood.
    Blade 2 was an excellent movie and came you all know.
    In India is usually Son of big producers turn actors or Directors which spoils show. But in Hollywood i don't know what is their complesson. I saw Watchmen (2009) Zack Snyder sir could not even get that cold war era feeling of nuclear bomb and stuff write. Now this man is helming superman.

    Battle: Los Angeles an expense movie is being helmed by guy who has nothing to show for.
    The guy who gave us Independence day comes up with such Trash that i cannot believe my sees.

    the only comedy i'm looking forward to is horrible bosses, mostly because of charlie day. i used to like jason bateman but i don't trust him anymore... been in too many crappy films lately.

    of course contagion sounds awesome and i'll probably see the hangover 2 although i have a feeling it won't be good... this coming from someone who loved the hangover
