  • Stars: Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone
  • Directed by Marc Webb, The Amazing Spider-Man is another re-creation of the all too familiar story of Peter Parker who will be portrayed by Andrew Garfield (gained reputation in the hit movie The Social Network).

  1. The Dark Knight Rises
  • Release date: July 20
  • Stars: Christian Bale, Tom Hardy, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Anne Hathaway
  • This movie will probably blow away the rest of the upcoming movies in 2012. With the director, Christopher Nolan, saying that this will be the last flick for this successful Batman movie, everyone has big expectations for it.

  1. The Bourne Legacy
  • Release date: August 3
  • Jeremy Renner, Rachel Weisz
  • This project has a new cast and director since Matt Damon and the former director decided that the third book of Robert Ludlum’s bestseller trilogy was their last movie. But anybody who loves espionage-themed movies will still be rushing to the cinema to watch this.


  1. The Expendables 2
  • Release date: August 17
  • Stars: Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li
  • Another action-packed movie is on with the coming back of the rough Expendables in this second film. Expect bigger explosions, wilder gunfire, more breathtaking martial arts moves and of course, atouch of comedy.

  1. James Bond 23
  • Release date: November 9
  • Stars: Daniel Craig, Judi Dench
  • This was supposed to grace the movie theaters in 2010 but was delayed due to MGM’s financial setbacks. So the newest Bond film, which is directed by Sam Mendes, will be out later next year.

  • Release date: November 16
  • Stars: Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner
  • The second part of the finale of the worldwide phenomenon will appear on the big screens late in 2012. Similar to the two-part ending of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, the two installments for Breaking Dawn will surely create anxiety and excitement to all Twilight fans. The Dark Knight Rises will probably not be able to blow this one off especially because their themesare not exactly of the same genre.

    • Stars: Martin Freeman, James Nesbitt
  • Whoever missed The Lord of the Rings Trilogy will be able to relive being with Elves, dwarves, hobbits, and all of Middle Earth with this movie.
