Just the other day, I overheard some friends chatting about Game of Thrones and how they couldn’t wait for the next episode to be released. I haven’t started the second series quite yet, but it has definitely been on my mind. I got to thinking, and it seems like there are a lot of highly anticipated movies coming out this year. 2012 has some incredible films and shows in the works, and I thought we could take a minute to count the highest anticipated films and shows coming out, starting with…
If you’re a sci-fi fan, this is the movie for you. Prometheus has been coming out with teaser trailers for a while, each one better than the last, and each making us freak out a little on the inside. It might not have Sigourney Weaver in it, but it definitely looks like it will be a decent flick. Here is the most recent “trailer.”
Game of Thrones
Game of Thrones has already started, and it definitely makes the list. If you haven’t given the first season a chance, now’s the time to do it. When you play the game of thrones, you win or you die. There is no middle ground. I just can’t wait to begin hating this guy again:
What happens when you combine Iron Man, Thor, the Hulk, and Captain American movies? The most anticipated sequel of the summer. Following the comic books, this sequel should turn even the slightest of geeks racing for the theaters.
The Lord of the Rings films are so epic by every standard of movie making that it’s hard to think of what they can do to one up them. In an effort to do just that, The Hobbit will be coming out in, you guessed it, 3D. Whether you’re a skeptic who things this type of gimmick should stay out of much awaited movies, or you just love your current dimension so much that you need it in the theater, The Hobbit is definitely one of the most anticipated productions of the year. It doesn’t help that they have a video blog of the movie making process, making fans more eager by the second.
The Dark Knight Rises
The final movie in Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy is set to come out this year, and it looks like the last Batman movie we’ll see in a while. Normally I would be more hesitant when it comes to the third of a trilogy (Matrix, Back to the Future, the Terminator, Cube…), but based on how good the first two were I’m pretty excited.
And finally we come to Brave. Brave may not even have made it on your horizon, but I think you should give it a second chance. Here’s a test: name the last awful Pixar move. Doesn’t exist, right? Some people think Brave looks too much like a simple fairytale (it is coupled with Disney…), but I think Pixar knows what they’re doing.
We’ll keep you up to date on new flick and shows, let us know about other movies you are looking forward to and we’ll try to include them!
