Top 10 Most Awaited movies
In the second part of the Top 10 upcoming movies 2012 post, we continue to look at the CGI heavy and awe inspiring movies which have been lined up for us this year. Rom-Coms and dramas are also being released this year as always but the last couple of years has shown that the animated or effects heavy movies; be it action, comedy or romance, have generated more public interest than other genres. A good many movie sequels will be seen this year like from the Twilight Saga and Underworld franchise along with many more. We will also see the singing sensation Rihanna this year in a movie which is based on a board game (no, it’s not Jumanji 3!). So without much waste of time, we proceed to the Top 10 Most Awaited Movies 2012. We will be categorizing the movies according to types soon as you can also look up your favorite horror, comedy, action, animated or romance movies for the year 2012 as well!
Saying that a movie has great special effects or mind blowing action scenes has become quite normal these days so we won’t be going down that road anymore. Prometheus is kept quite secret by Ridley Scott and not much has been given to the public to drool upon. The Prometheus trailer only lets us know that the movie would be much like the Aliens series and is about a group of scientists who have stumbled on a deadly secret. It is a horror Sci-fi set in the fantastic worlds which Ridley Scott is quite famous for.
Rihanna is starring in the upcoming Battleship movie which is based on a very popular board game of the 80s which got successfully ported on the electronic mediums. Aliens start to attack the American Naval fleet out of the blue after a group of soldiers accidently activate one of its ships. Real Battleships have been used in the making of this movie which adds to the visual wonders which are abundant throughout the movie.
8. G.I. Joe: Retaliation
All set to be released in June 2012, G.I. Joe: Retaliation continues its fight against the evil Zartan and his minions which happen to be influential politicians from around the world!

The special effects look great in the trailer and the movie is expected to be a hit.
7. Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows
Johnny Depp plays the vampire called Barnabas Collins in this conversion of the hit TV series into a movie. Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows shows a vampire and his various chance meetings with other supernatural entities like werewolves and demons. As the Dark Shadows series showed, he was a fine young man until he broke the heart of a witch (unknowingly) who then turned him into a vampire and locked him up. He manages to free himself only to find that a good 200 years have passed and now the world is quite a different place.
6. Wrath of the Titans
Wrath of the Titans is a follow up to the hit movie Clash of the Titans from 2011 and is also known as Clash of the Titans 2.

All the questions which were left unanswered will finally be revealed this time as the directors predict.
4. Resident Evil: Retribution
With probably the best mix of horror, action and sci-fi, Resident Evil: Retribution continues on with the ongoing fight between the deadly Umbrella and the growing groups of people who have vowed to fight them till the end.

The tale takes us through Abraham Lincoln’s of youth and his alter secret life. After finding out that his mother was killed by a vampire, he succeeds in getting his revenge from the vampire but gets brutally beaten by another one. Ironically, he is nursed back to health by a good vampire and thus starts a tale of a deep insight in the ways of the vampire.
2. Star Wars: Phantom Menace 3D
Most of us have already seen the epic Star Wars: Phantom Menace countless times and enjoyed it each time. So, it came as a pleasant surprise when it was announced that it would be re-released this year as Star Wars: Phantom Menace 3D in full 3D. It is originally a part of the prequel series of The Star Wars Trilogy. A unique thing about this film is that it was directed by George Lucas himself. We will just have to wait to see if Star Wars: Phantom Menace 3D takes the Star Wars saga on to a new level or not.
1. The Woman in Black
The Woman in Black is novel which was written by Susan Hill in 1983. It was converted into a stage ply and now production of the movie with the same name is almost complete.

The bleak atmosphere coupled with the cold England season perfectly sets the scary atmosphere and sends chills down your spine even in the trailers! The Woman in Black ranks number 1 in the Top 10 Most Awaited Movies 2012 list.
