2012 is here and movie fans are pretty excited, as the year twenty-twelve promises some highly anticipated sci-fi films (Prometheus), some promising animated originals (Brave, Paranorman), the usual awards season art house entries (Licoln, Great Gatsby), and a super-powered showdown between Marvel’s The Avengers, and DC/Warner Bros.’ The Dark Knight Rises.

Should that Mayan doomsday prophecy turn out to be true, it’ll be hard to say that we didn’t go out on a high note, as far as movies are concerned.

            • I want this to be reliable too, Bobby, so as soon as I have a free second I’ll update this list.

            • Just did a total run through and update of the preview. There a few other changes waiting to be made as well. I’ll check back once a week or so to keep updating things.
