Must See Films In 2012 - Part 2

6. Prometheus (June 2012)

Prometheus is an upcoming science fiction film which follows a group of characters taking some kind of journey in an extra terrestrial world, supposedly in search of the origins of human race.

The trailer doesn't really show much. Not even a glimpse of Charlize Theron's ass. It was revealed, however, that the story dates forward to the end of 21st century and is somehow connected to the 1979 film Alien. I wasn't born yet that time so I'll cut the crap and skip to the next film.

7. The Dark Knight Rises (July 2012)

Christian Bale reprises his role as billionaire Bruce Wayne and caped-crusader-at-night Batman. Filmed in several locations including Glasgow, India, London, Los Angeles, Newark, New York and Pittsburgh, the film takes place eight years after the events of The Dark Knight.

I've seen enough. I don't care, I'm dragging my wife to this movie.

The film also stars Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle, with Anne having to work out five times a week to fit her role in a tight leather suit costume. Also featured is Tom Hardy as the backbreaking villain Bane. If you will remember, Tom also started to pump iron a few years ago to make the transition from this Van Wilder-esque guy to this human juggernaut that he is today.

8. The Bourne Legacy (August 2012)

Now directed by Tony Gilroy, the new spin-off won't feature Jason Bourne or Matt Damon. Instead, the film centers on Jeremy Renner, who plays CIA agent Aaron Cross. According to Renner, the film will features "new set of agents with a different leash".

It was also confirmed that the crew will soon start shooting some of its scenes in various locations within the Philippines, including a car chase scene in the notorious EDSA-Taft Avenue. For those of you wondering how tough it is to drive in the Philippines, you may want to hear it first hand from a London Bus Driver.

9. The Expendables 2 (August 2012)

The much awaited sequel to the star studded, old school testosterone fest The Expendables.

Aside from the previous line-up of Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture, Terry Crews, Bruce Willis, and Arnold Schwarzenegger, the new film feature action film veterans Chuck Norris and Jean-Claude Van Damme, as well as new comers Liam Hemsworth and Yu Nan.

You don't hire Chuck Norris. Chuck Norris hires you.

10. Skyfall (October 2012)

The 23rd sequel of the James Bond movie franchise comes back this year with another promise of Daniel Craig’s modern version of 007. Personally, I prefer watching Craig portray the MI6 agent more than Pierce Brosnan, for the reason that Craig is more agile and capable of bringing further action to the table.

It was confirmed that Skyfall will not be directly related to Casino Royale and Quantum Of Solace in terms of events, and it was announced that Ralph Fiennes would be reprising the role of MI6 head ‘M’.

Oh, and Naomie Harris will be this year’s Bond girl, Field Agent Eve.
