What Movies Look Good in 2012

Are you getting the feeling that you’ve seen that already? In the movie biz in 2012, that feeling of déjà vu may be truer than you think. The industry as a whole needs a boost, especially since 2011 was one of the worst box office takes in around a decade. 
 
Not everything that’s coming up this year is great. But there are a few things I am looking out for.
 
There are a ton of sequels/prequels/remakes. I count 25!
(Parenthesis represent the sequel number)
 
 
1/20 -  Underworld: Awakening (4)
2/10 – Journey To The Center of the Earth 2: The Mysterious Island
2/17 – Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengance (2)
3/30 – Wrath Of The Titans (Clash Of The Titans 2)
4/6 – American Reunion (4)
4/20 – Scary Movie 5
5/4 – The Avengers (I consider it a sequel)
5/25 – Men In Black 3
6/8 - Madagascar 3: Europes Most Wanted
6/8 - Prometheius – (the Alien prequel)
6/29 - GI Joe: Retaliation (2)
7/4 – The Amazing Spiderman
7/13 – Ice Age: Continental Drift (4)
7/20 – The Dark Knight Rises (3)
7/27 – Step Up 4
8/3 – Total Recall
8/3 – The Bourne Legacy (4)
8/3 – Diary Of A Wimpy Kid: Dog Days (3)
8/17 – The Expendables 2
9/14 - Resident Evil 5
10/5 – Taken 2
10/19 – Paranormal Activity 4
11/2 – Red Dawn
11/16 – The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2
12/7 – Les Miserable
 
There are a bunch of re-releases of old movies, now in 3D
1/13 – Beauty & The Beast
2/10 - Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace
3/6 - Titanic
9/14 – Finding Nemo
10/5 – Texas Chainsaw Massacre
 
There’s TV shows/board games becoming movies
3/16 – 21 Jump Street
4/13 – The Three Stooges
5/11 - Dark Shadows
5/18 – Battleship
 
Then there’s the movies that I’m actually looking forward to
3/23 - Hunger Games – Based on the bestseller book.
6/22 – Abraham Lincoln- Vampire Hunter – Awesome title
9/28 – Looper – A mob hitman in the future realizes that he’s supposed to whack his future self.
11/9 – Skyfall – the new James Bond with Lord Voldemort as the bad guy.
11/21 – Gravity – A new George Clooney space thriller.
12/14 – The Hobbit: The Unexpected Journey – I just want to hear Gandolph’s voice again.
 
And of course The Dark Knight Rises and The Avengers. Duh.

And to think...
...that each year over 250 movies are eligible for Best Picture Oscar. Crazy.
