The Ultimate 2012 Summer Movie Trailer

Published 3 years ago by , Updated May 9th, 2012 at 7:37 am,

The summer 2012 movie season kicked off in a big way this past weekend with The Avengers – racking up a record breaking $207 million domestic opening weekend box office haul. While you can read our review of The Avengers, hear us talk about the film in a special edition of the Screen Rant Underground podcast, as well as chat about the movie in our Avengers spoilers discussion – we’re already looking forward to what the rest of the summer has to offer movie-lovers.

In honor of our favorite season for film, we’re continuing the tradition of crafting one big all-encompassing sneak peek at the summer blockbuster schedule with an Ultimate 2012 Summer Movie Trailer (which you can find above).

In prior years, our intrepid friend Mike Eisenberg edited-together footage from the most anticipated films in the upcoming release slate – creating both the Ultimate 2010 Summer Movie Trailer and Ultimate 2011 Summer Movie Trailer. This year, Mike has been keeping busy with his own film, Stitches (you can find out more about the film at the Tall Tale Productions Facebook page) - so we’ve handed mash-up duties over to fellow video editor extraordinaire Chris Molinaro.

In the Ultimate 2012 Summer Movie Trailer, you’ll see plenty of highly-anticipated releases including The Dark Knight Rises, The Amazing Spider-ManG.I. Joe: RetaliationPrometheus, and more.

As mentioned, check out the video at the top of the page (if you haven’t already) as well as the full list of included movies (and their respective release dates) below.

Overall, a pretty solid line-up this summer with some especially high-profile film releases. Of course, the trailer itself isn’t all-inclusive so for the full listing of movie releases this summer check out our Summer 2012 Movie Preview article – which contains info on a number of other buzz-worthy projects.

We have some other cool video content ideas in the pipeline but, in the meantime, make sure to tell all your friends about this latest Screen Rant trailer mash-up!

Follow me on Twitter @benkendrick for movie, TV, and gaming news and Chris Molinaro @Molinaro4Prez for future video mash-ups (as well as a pretty entertaining faux presidential campaign).

      • nice info anne…..!! thx for the information its impressive …!!

  2. what’s the name of the song?

    • I’ve updated the post with the info – Raphael Lake “Glorious”.

  3. I’m going broke this summer! Better take out that 2nd mortgage ;)

  4. Holy crap, I don’t think I’ll be able to leave the theater in June, might as well rent out a room inside one!! Piranha 3DD, Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted, Prometheus, Brave, and G.I. Joe Retaliation all in one month, wow…

  5. This trailer manages to create
    a greater interest in seeing the
    films included than most actual
    trailers for the films themselves.

    Chris Molinaro meets the challenge
    with some movie magic of his own.

    • word!

    • Seconded.

  6. This makes me want to go see all these movies, even if some of these movies dont look that great

  7. Cheers Chris.
    Great job.

  8. Man already saw The Avengers and now I gotta see; Dark Shadows, The Dictator, Battleship, Men in Black 3, Snow White and the Huntsman, Prometheus, Abraham Lincoln, Brave, Seeking a Friend for the End of the World, GI Joe, Spider-Man, Savages, Ted, The Dark Knight Rises, The Bourne Legacy, and Total Recall. Man I’m gonna be losing some money.

  9. finally going to see avengers imax 3d tomorrow!

  10. Great trailer, thanks Ben, Chris, and Raphael…Ben this is marc_s3047, thanks again

    • Cheers!

  11. This is one awesome trailer. (Kudos SR)
    I’m gonna be broke! :(

  12. -Men in Black III
    -Snow White & the Huntsman(Maybe The trailer looks interesting)
    -Spider-man(Maybe but prob not)
    -Ted(Maybe looks funny)
    -Dark Knight Rises
    -Total Recall(Maybe…Maybe)
    -The Expendables II

    That’s it…

  13. Nice! good job!

  14. Excellent…

  15. Movies I’m DEFINITELY going to watch:

    Snow White and the Huntsman
    Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter
    Magic Mike
    Ice Age: Continental Drift
    The Dark Knight Rises
    Total Recall
    The Expendables 2

  16. skyfall :(

    • Skyfall isn’t out until November. We’ll make sure to include it in our Ultimate Winter 2012 Movie Trailer… if that turns out to be an actual thing.

      • MAKE IT SO!!!

  17. Disney’s Brave doesn’t appeal to me like when I saw Wall e and Up trailers. Since last years’ Cars 2, I think Pixar is running out of ideas, but they had a very good run over the years.

    I hop Men in black 3 would be like MIB 1. TDKR looks like it will have stiff competition at the box office.

    • Cars 2 was still a good movie (better than any of the Madagascar or Ice Age movies anyway). And Brave looks fantastic. Pixar is still ruling champion

  18. Thanks for the kind words, guys. Glad you like it.

  19. In order of anticipation (for me personally)

    1. Dark Knight Rises
    2. Brave
    3. Spiderman
    4. Prometheus
    5. Moonrise Kingdom
    6. Expendables 2
    7. GI Joe 2
    8. Abramham Lincoln Vampire Hunter
    9. Lawless
    10. (tie)Total Recall and Bourne Identity

    (Avengers is excluded because i have already seen it, twice. Last week it wouldve placed second)

    there are other movies i wouldnt mind seeing, but these are the once i’m not gonna miss

  20. Awesome! Love the del Toro bit at 0:27, that alone makes me want to watch Savages.

    Great Job Chris, you got my vote.

  21. Awesome.

    Great job, Chris.

    Like the music.

  22. I would have left the Adam Sandler crap off but otherwise a great trailer.

  23. Thank goodness I work at a movie theatre without free movies id be broke

  24. Great Trailer!!!
