Pixar returns with their first heroin as a young red headed Scottish princess named Merida must defy some customs to save her people. Brave is sure to be a hit at the box office and there will be little girls all over the country loving this film.
With a cast like Tom Hardy, Shia LaBeouf, Guy Pearce, and Jessica Chastain, this is sure to be a good movie. Set in the Depression-Era, a bunch of bootlegging, moon shining brothers start a revolt against a new authority in their small town. Hardy shooting and beating people up. It’s going to be a hit.
6. Snow White and the Huntsman
You might say to yourself that there is a already Mirror Mirror out there. Don’t worry, Rupert Sanders’ film is a much darker, action packed film. With the likes of Kristen Stewart, Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron, people will be packed in to see this one.
7. The Expendables 2
Don’t underestimate the power of having every single action star of all time in one film. The second installment of Stallone’s life’s work, will surely earn big bucks in the post office. While predictable, the first film was thoroughly entertaining and I expect the second to be the same. Did I mention Chuck Norris is in this film. If you don’t go see it, Chuck Norris will high kick you in the face.
In his first feature film, Family Guy creator Seth McFarlane plays a real life teddy bear who has to deal with his long time best friend and roommate growing up. Mark Wahlberg, Mila Kunis and Giovanni Ribisi participate I the film. I sincerely believe this may be the funniest movie of 2012. Go watch the trailer right now.
9. The Amazing Spider-Man
One of the best selling franchises of all time returns in this reboot starring Andrew Garfield and Emma Watson. In the re-installment, Peter Parker finds a clue as to what happened to his parents and a new twist will bring the super hero to life. This film may outperform its predecessor as it appears the film is taking a darker look at the life of Spider-Man.
10. The Bourne Legacy
The best selling and blockbuster hit is back in a reboot of the franchise. Jeremy Renner (The Hurt Locker) replaces Damon as the rouge Agent who operates in the same world as the original Bourne films. The first set of films were amazing and with a strong Renner as the replacement, I am expecting only good things.
