Here are the top 5 movies we’re looking forward to in 2012.
2. The Dark Knight Rises
Release Date: July 20, 2012
Director: Christopher Nolan
There has been some controversy over the muffled voice of the villainous Bane in the Dark Knight Rises prologue clip and the casting of Anne Hathaway as Catwoman/Selina Kyle, however director Christopher Nolan has earned the benefit of any doubts. 2008’s Dark Knight is one of the top grossing movies of all time and set the bar for comic book heroes on the silver screen. It’s also easy to forget that there were a lot of complaints when Heath Ledger (Brokeback Mountain, A Knight’s Tale) was originally announced he was taking on the role of the Joker. With all due respect to Jack Nicholson, Heath Ledger IS the Joker. Nolan’s last movie, sci-fi heist film Inception (2010), was a fascinating exploration of the unconscious mind and the power of illusion. In fact, several actors from Inception (Tom Hardy, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Marion Cottilard) will star in Dark Knight Rises, the final movie in Nolan’s Batman Trilogy.
