7 Promising Movies of 2012

One of my favorite things to do is to grab some Taters' Texan barbecue popcorn and watch a movie. This new year, 2012, I have seven line ups of promising movies that I have been looking forward the most. In alphabetical order, these are:

G.I. Joe: Retaliation

Starring Channing Tatum as Captain Duke Hauser, the G.I. Joe team faces off against Zartan, his accomplices and the world leaders he has under his influence.

The trailer seems to show us a glimpse of Director Jon Chu's promise that the G.I Joe franchise sequel will be better than the first one, in terms of cast, story, and action. I can't wait to see Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson as Roadblock and Bruce Willis as General Joseph Colton.

Men In Black 3

The film is the third entry in the Men In Black series. It is starring Will Smith as Agent J and Tommy Lee Jones as Agent K. Agent J travel through time to stop an alien in changing the history of mankind.

The trailer was unpredictably cool with the guns and the time-jump gadget. Having to wait 10 years after its predecessor, Men In Black III surely made its way on my list of promising movies.

Resident Evil: Retribution

Milla Jovovich as Alice will once again lead the battle with the Umbrella Corporation. This is the fifth installment to the Resident Evil film series based on the Capcom survival horror series Resident Evil.

What's exciting about it is, there will be returning actors and characters on this film. I don't know how but one of my favorites, Michelle Rodriguez will be back!

I'll post the trailer once ready.

The Avengers

Sneak peek first!

Hot! Isn't it?! 

When I first saw this featurette video shared by one of my friends on Facebook, I got exaggeratedly excited! Robert Downey Jr. was right when he said "That's the most ambitious movie I've ever seen". Joss Whedon who directed The Avengers conveyed his amazement with the unbelievable dream team that he have now by saying "I had a dream all my life and it was not THIS good!" 

Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and S.H.I.E.L.D. (Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division), assembles a team of super humans to form The Avengers to fight Loki and his various membered army to save the planet Earth.

The Dark Knight Rises

Former hero Batman (Christian Bale) was forced to rise up again when the terrorist leader Bane arrives and pushes Gotham City and its police force to their limits.

The tagline "The Legend Ends" basically gave us the idea of what will take place on the third installment to the Batman series. It was a good thing that Director Christopher Nolan and his brother Jonathan, with David S. Goyer, developed a story that they felt would be an unexceptional conclusion to the series.

The Hunger Games

The Hunger Games Trilogy fans are surely excited to see the film adaptation starring Jennifer Lawrence as the role of Katniss, Josh Hutcherson as the role of Peeta, and Liam Hemsworth as the role of Gale. It is set in a future where the Capitol selects a boy and a girl tribute from each of the twelve districts, and lets the whole world watch on live television how they fight to death.

The intensity of Katniss' volunteering as a tribute in replacement to her sister Prim was agonizingly dramatic.
But an exciting part will be Lenny Kravitz' role as Cinna.

I haven't watched The Hunger Games but is already excited with its Catching Fire sequel to be released in November 22, 2013.
