    Avengers, Hobbit, Prometheus, Darknight rises, and hoping that the new Judge Dredd movie turns out as good as i hope it will.

    Theres also other movies i will see but im currently unsure about them. They could be good but who knows they could flop as well.

    The Hobbit, Bourne Legacy, Great Gatsby, Dark Knight Rises, Avengers, Prometheus, *Hunger Games (already out and it was great)*

    Also strangely excited for Twilight, not because I have any intention of seeing it but rather because that horrific piece of shit series will finally be over and all the morons who think they are good movies can finally STFU...

    I have no interest in superheroes, comic crap, etc.. so it's ironic the only movies I'm really looking forward to this year are:

    The Avengers

    The Dark Knight Rises


    *looks like I'm the only one lacking any interest in Tolkein based films..

    I loved the LotR trilogy, but for some reason just can't get pumped about the Hobbit.

    I'm looking forward to:
    Dark Knight Rises
    Cabin in the Woods
    Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (Spielberg's Lincoln will probably be good too, but I'm way more interested in the fake version, lol)
    Iron Sky (filmed a while ago, but finally coming out this year...Nazi's from space! lol it's swedish, i think. Somewhere foreign)

    Knowing Hollywood, they'll reboot them in less than 10 years, lol

    Avengers, because of two words: Joss Whedon.

    Hobbit because of two words: Martin Freeman.

    Dark Knight Rises because of two words: THE BATMAN.

    Everything else is something I'll probably wait for to come out on the movie network on demand, or download eventually, cause I'm damn broke.

    It'll be the same as Lord of the Rings, which had boring trailers and turned out to be an amazing 3 movies.

    A lot of what's already been posted. Hobbit for sure. Dark Knight Rises, Prometheus, Avengers. Pretty standard stuff.

    I like movies that surprise me though. Ones you don't hear a lot about but creep up on you. Inception, Social Network for example.

    Out of them all

    The Hobbit
    The Dark Knight Rises
    the Avengers

    They are the ones that instantly come to mind.

    The lack of Prometheus in every reply is disturbing. Also, The Hobbit, Dark Knight Rises, The Bourne Legacy and some others.

    Of the movies I'm aware of the Avengers is the only one I'm going to go out of my way to see.
