I understand everyone's feelings on Spider-Man but I'm kind of looking forward to Marc Webb and Andrew Garfield's interpretation. The Batman reboot worked out well so it's possible it could work out.

I need to look to see what's coming out when but I'm looking forward to the Hobbit, Quentin Tarantino's movie Django Unchained and the Master, Paul Thomas Anderson's movie loosely based on scientology.

The three big ones for me are Dark Knight Rises, The Hobbit and Prometheus. Feels like a long time since we had such a run of big, promising movies to look forward to.

Anyone know of a Japanese release date from Prometheus? Worryingly I can't seem to find one.

this one they was tend to be "the most close to the comic" because the first one rarely follow the original comic storyline ;)

I will DIE for Dark Knight Rises.

Also:

Skyfall (Next Bond Movie)
Lincoln by Spielberg
The Great Gatsby
Also, looking it up now: Finding Nemo in 3D. Now THAT will be amazing

i know hollywood is re-making everything that can't hide fast enough, but the great gatsby? seriously? same goes for total recall, the trailer looks awful.

the bourne legacy: making a bourne film without matt damon seemed stupid at first, but i like jeremy renner and he might just pull it off. edward norton and rachel weisz are in it, too. and of course the almighty joan allen.

cosmopolis: hopefully a return to form for david cronenberg.

dark shadows: same here, fingers crossed that tim burton got his act together for this movie (though the trailer dampened my hopes ...)

django unchained: hey, it's tarantino after all.

life of pi: i quite liked this book, and ang lee directing means that it might become a good movie.

the master: paul tomas anderson is finally back, and his thinly veiled dramatization of the life of ron hubbard could be interesting.

moonrise kingdom: some people hate wes anderson's movies, some people love them. but he's always got a fantastic cast at disposal, this time it includes tilda swinton, harvey keitel, bruce willis, edward norton, and frances mcdormand, jason schwartzman and bill murray.

My sentiments exactly. I don't remember the las time there was such a strong group of mainstream films. A lot of records are going to fall , at least here in the US.

The BIG THREE are The Dark Knight Rises, The Hobbit, and Prometheus.

However the tier below those three looks equally as impressive: The Hunger Games (which is massive here in North America), Snow White and The Huntsman , The Amazing Spider-Man (which is a more faithful adaptations of the comicbooks), and The Avangers.

Then you have the C tire films that all look unusually impressive (though I do expect to see some misses here. We already had a casualty with John Carter :o) John Carter, MIB 3, Iron Sky, The Raven, Dark Shadows, and Brave.

Plus there're some big name projects coming up this year that we still don't know much about: Gravity (Sci-Fi), World War of Z (Horror/Drama), and Django Unchained (Thriller).

I already love 2012 for The Hunger Games and The Secret World of Arrietty. :hearts:

I'm avoiding The Great Gatsby for two reasons - it's in 3D and Baz Luhrmann's directing. It's going to be all glittery isn't it? :scared: :lol:

Films I want to see this year:

Prometheus
Moonrise Kingdom
Dark Shadows
Looper
Welcome to the Punch
Trance (although most likely to come out next year)
Skyfall
The Dark Knight Rises (not as pysched for this one as I was for The Dark Knight and Inception, though)
Cosmopolis

I'll add more when awards season comes around :p

I really hope Tim Burton's created something really good with Dark Shadows after the awfulness that was Alice in Wonderland :sobbing:. I also hope Skyfall is more Casino Royale than Quantum of Solace!

Just kidding it was freaking awesome!!!!! The most epic goddamn movie I've seen in my entire life!!!! :drool::eek::sobbing::rolls::hysteric: No I mean, superb acting + superb action from the beginning to the end, that's what makes it so amazing. Robert Downey Jr. and Mark Ruffalo were the best out there, Tom Hiddleston was also great as Loki, and it was great seeing the gorgeous Cobie Smulders from How I Met Your Mother, also Samuel L. Fucking Jackson was as motherfucking awesome as always, sadly he didn't get to drop F-bombs in the movie :lol:

Well if you have seen Alien then you know what happens anyway.


Avengers is a very good script and the action delivers where many comic book movies didnt. Theres a lot of dialogue and the characters each generally get good air time apart from the irrelevant Hawkeye. Would like to see a bit more Scarlett. Dont like Loki as the main adversary though, he is more an annoyance rather than a powerful classic villain, probably would have been more effective as a tag team with someone else, because all the Avengers against him hardly seems like an even contest, or maybe they are setting it up for the next movie. The ending was probably the main weak point for me, after all the great buildup.

The Cannes film festival is going on right now and several major directors are screening their films there. The movie with the most rapturous reviews so far seems to be Haneke's Amour. I'm very excited for this one as I really loved his last film, The White Ribbon.

Beasts of the Southern Wild also continued its festival swing and got a standing ovation from the notoriously tough French crowd, this movie really looks like it could sneak into some categories at the Oscars.

Rust and Bone, Audiard's latest has been relatively divisive with some loving it and some not but there's probably an outside shot that Marion Cotillard could get some awards notices for her performance.

Anyway, looking forward to seeing all three of these movies when they get released in the U.S.

i loved the les mis trailer. I think Anne's raw/shaky vocals work in this as they convey emotion and make it seem more "real" and less completely "musical"-like. My two cents.

Les miserables looks terrible. I really don't like musicals anymore.

Tom Hooper has said it won't be a typical musical i.e. it will be a lot more realistic than campy/staged.

I saw Beasts of the Southern Wild this week and it was amazing. Besides my strong personal feelings for it, I also could see the Academy going for it if it makes enough money (15 million+ or so). It's not a traditional film but it has enough emotion that I could see the more conservative members still liking it.

For me, it was so beautiful visually, the score is one of the best I've ever heard, and the acting from Wallis is astonishing for a six year old. One of the better debuts for a director I've seen in a while. There wasn't a dry eye in the theater I saw it in by the end of the movie.

Below are the trailers for The Master and Cloud Atlas, both of which look stunning. I have high hopes for the Master, considering PTA's last movie TWBB is one of my favorites of all time. The actual Cloud Atlas movie could be a mess (although I'm really hoping it's good) but this trailer is amazing.

I agree with you somewhat but at least this is based on a book so it's not their ideas. They're very good visual directors so as long as they don't mess up the story that's already there, it should be better than the conclusion of the matrix series was.
