My Top 10 Most Anticipated Movies of 2012

Here are the top ten movies, yet to be released, that I’m looking forward to seeing this year (ranked by release date).

#1) ‘The Avengers’ [May 4, 2012]

“Mega-superhero-mashup” + “Joss Whedon” = “CAN’T WAIT!” The amount of planning behind this movie is overwhelming. 

#2) ‘Moonrise Kingdom’ [May 16, 2012]

Wes Anderson can do no wrong. This all-star cast (Bruce Willis, Edward Norton, Bill Murray…) is sure to deliver the quirkiness Anderson fans have come to expect.

#3) ‘Brave’ [June 22, 2012]

Forget ‘Cars 1 & 2’. ‘Brave’ will be a return to form for Pixar.

#4) ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ [July 20, 2012]

This movie will be battling ‘The Avengers’ for best superhero flick of the year (or ever). My money is on Nolan’s Batman finale.

#5) ‘ParaNorman’ [August 17, 2012]

I’m a sucker for stop-motion animation. Also, this director’s previous film, ‘Coraline’, was a personal favorite. Not to mention, it’s what I saw on my first date with Kerri. I wonder what this film will lead to?

#6) ‘Looper’ [September 28, 2012]

Rian Johnson is the super talented director behind ‘The Brothers Bloom’. In his newest film, he explores time travel and throws in Bruce Willis and Joseph Gordon-Levitt for good measure. 


#7) ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’ [December 14, 2012]

Peter Jackson is back in Middle-earth! In my mind, there is no way this will be anything short of amazing.

#8) ‘This is 40’ [December 21, 2012]

‘Knocked Up’ is my favorite comedy OF ALL TIME! I don’t know much about this sequel/spin-off, but I’m sure it will be enjoyable.


#9) ‘Life of Pi’ [December 21, 2012]

Only one image has been released for this film. See it here.

#10 ‘Django Unchained’ [December 25, 2012]

Tarantino’s latest film has an incredible cast and superb script. “Inglorious” was a blast and I can’t wait for Quentin’s next masterpiece.

There it is. I can’t wait to see all of these (and more) in theaters this year. The following are some movies that barely missed the list (in no apparent order): ‘Lincoln’, ‘John Dies at the End’, ‘Safety Not Guaranteed’, ‘Gangster Squad’, ‘Gravity’, ‘Wreck-It Ralph’, ‘Argo’, and ‘Prometheus’.

Let me know what you think of the list, and what movies you are looking forward to this year.

    This design is spectacular! You obviously know how to keep a reader amused. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Fantastic job. I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool! 981267
