2012: The Year of the Cinema

Some years are certainly better than others when it comes to box office results. A lot of times, movies that get hyped up actually become rather forgettable. However, it seems that this year, 2012, will fall on the more favorable end of the spectrum. Why? Well, this year seems to have an exceptional lineup of big-name talent as well as highly anticipated movie releases. Just take a look at the list:

CHRISTOPHER NOLAN

The Dark Knight Rises will, of course, be a box office recorder breaker/setter, all in one. With anticipation heightening almost daily, if Christopher Nolan and team did their jobs right (Surely they did) then this movie will be one to remember for years to come.

RIDLEY SCOTT

Set for a summer release, the prequel/reboot/spinoff of the Alien franchise, Prometheus, brings Ridley Scott back to the screen for the first time since 2010.

________________________________________________________________

PETER JACKSON

For the next entry in the acclaimed The Lord of the Rings saga, visionary Peter Jackson brings to life The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.

________________________________________________________________

QUENTIN TARANTINO

Django Unchained brings cult-master Quentin Tarantino back to the screen for what will likely be a stylized and original retelling of rebellion dating back to the days of slavery.

STEVEN SPIELBERG 

Lincoln, the biopic adaptation of Abraham Lincoln’s presidency, is the first collaboration between Steven Spielberg and Daniel Day-Lewis.

________________________________________________________________

SAM MENDES

Surrounded by plenty of good company, Academy Award winner Sam Mendes gets his crack at the James Bond franchise with Skyfall.

________________________________________________________________

PAUL THOMAS ANDERSON

The patient, and meticulous PTA returns this year with his next classic, The Master, which could potentially feature the controversial subject of Scientology.

________________________________________________________________

TERRENCE MALICK

There are not a lot of details available regarding the Untitled Terrence Malick Project, however, one thing is definite. If this movie is anything like his previous films, it is sure to cause a stir and be visually stunning.

________________________________________________________________

THE AVENGERS

This particular super hero movie,  The Avengers, brings together a collection of fan favorites for what could inevitably be a fan-boy hit.

________________________________________________________________

THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN

The Amazing Spider-Man, a reboot of the web-slinging franchise has already garnered a substantial amount of attention. No doubt, this version will give audiences a fresh taste.

________________________________________________________________

THE BOURNE LEGACY

“There was never just one.” Well, now there are four. The Bourne Legacy, a reboot of the Jason Bourne character looks just as gritty and hard-hitting as ever.

________________________________________________________________

TOTAL RECALL

Yet another reboot, Total Recall, looks as though it might quench the audience’s thirst for mind-bending Sci-Fi action while, perhaps, avoiding the cheesiness of the original.

________________________________________________________________

MEN IN BLACK III

For the third installment, Men in Black III returns with the addition of time travel and giant amounts of menacing aliens.

Any award season predictions yet?
