What can we expect from the big screen in 2012?

Kon'nichiwa min'na!

What can we expect from 2012... the world of film!

So... Movies... We all love them, some more than others, like me, but we've all watched at least one film in our lives. Whether it be a Horror, Thriller, Comedy, Romance or Action flick, there will always be that one movie we never forget. It might not be your favourite movie, it might even be your most hated film, but it always stirs up memories when you catch a glimpse of it, or hear the dialogue.

But onto the matter at hand. What cinematic films can you expect to see in 2012? Well I'm here to provide you with a list of a few that I think are extremely notable.

1. Beauty and the Beast 3D
This is a remake of Disney's 1991 classic Beauty and the Beast. If you have seen the original, this remake is sure to bring back old memories, but if you have not been fortunate enough to watch the original, this stereoscopic 3D remake will definitely create some memories.

2. Underworld: Awakening (3D)
This will surely make the blood of many vampire fans boil. The second sequel in the Underworld series. Scheduled for release on January 20th. On April 4, 2011, Screen Gems released the following synopsis:

"Kate Beckinsale, star of the first two films, returns in her lead role as the vampire warrioress Selene, who escapes imprisonment to find herself in a world where humans have discovered the existence of both Vampire and Lycan clans, and are conducting an all-out war to eradicate both immortal species."

3. Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance (3D)
This is the sequel to the awesome Ghost Rider. Actor Nicolas Cage however is adamant that it is not a sequel, what does Nick know that we don't? The plot as yet is unknown, but it is most definitely going to be epic. I mean, it's Nicolas Cage!

4. Titanic 3D
It's a the conversion of Titanic in 3D. IN 3D!!! There is no other explanation necessary. It is going to be awesome.

5. Scary Movie 5
Scary Movie 5. Anyone who has seen the first four movies will know the awesomeness and hilarity that is Scary Movie (Although Scary Movie 4 sucked). Not much is known about the movie yet, but expect a release towards the middle of the year.

6. Men in Black III
Guns. Aliens. Men. In. Black. Agent J (Will Smith) time-travels back to the 1960s, where an alien with its sights set on the younger version of Agent K (Tommy Lee Jones) poses a threat to the future of the MIB organization -- and the existence of humankind. Another movie that I can't wait to be released! In 3D no less...

7. The Amazing Spider-Man
This is the fourth Columbia Pictures film based on that Marvel Comics character, and the first film in a rebooted Spider-Man film franchise. Not much is known about the plot, but as the title poster suggests, this is "The Untold Story".

8. The Dark Knight Rises
This is the upcoming sequel to Batman Begins and The Dark Knight. This film is set 8 years after The Dark Knight and introduces two new villains from the Batman Universe, Selina Kyle and Bane, played by Anne Hathaway and Tom Hardy respectively. A fanboys dream.

9. Resident Evil: Retribution
ZOMG! Zombies!!! Kill it with fire!!! This is the fifth film in the Resident Evil film series with many returning actors from the previous films as well as introducing new characters from the Resident Evil video game series. KILL THE ZOMBIES!

And last, but not least.

10. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
This is the film adaptation of the book of the same name by author J.R.R. Tolkien. It is also a prequel of sorts to The Lord of The Rings film series. The adventure follows the journey of title character Bilbo Baggins, who is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor from the fearsome dragon Smaug. Nerd boys and geek chicks around the world unite for this upcoming flick.

So there you have it guys and girls, my top 10 films for 2012. If you get the chance you really should go out and watch them. Take the family with too!

Also, today is my amazing nephew Sebastian Nicholson's birthday, he's turning 3 today, I love you li'l Crab Man! Happy Birthday!!!
