My Super 8 Blockbusters to See In Theaters for 2012

With a growing number of reasons to skip the movie theater, including rising ticket prices and better home viewing options, it’s easy to see why Hollywood is in  this so called “slump” (even though it is expected to be a record year as far as Box Office is concerned). But there are still reasons to go to your local IMAX,  and it's called a "Blockbuster", of which we won't be lacking throughout the year.

DOUBLE B’s "SUPER 8" for 2012

To me, theres nearly nothing better than sitting in an IMAX theater watching a good Blockbuster on one of those giant screens, especially in 3-D. I know some people hate 3-D and want to puke when they hear it, but I fucking love that shit when it’s done right, so I don’t care what you think. With a crazy and weird movie year ahead of us (there are two Snow White movies? Seriously, how does this happen?), let’s look at my “Super 8” Blockbusters for 2012:

Blockbuster Title

Release Date

John Carter

March 9th

 My Super 8 Blockbusters to See In Theaters for 2012

As I have said before, I have high hopes for John Carter, and it’s not because I think it looks amazing (that’s definitely questionable).  The reason is that I don’t want this Summer to be the one that buries it’s star Taylor Kitsch, who was awesome in Friday Night Lights and I would like to see him in future roles.

The Avengers

May 4th, 201

The Avengers Movie My Super 8 Blockbusters to See In Theaters for 2012

To get excited for the Joss Whedon directed Avengers all you need to do is watch the trailer that was released today. I mean holy shit. It seems like they started production on this yesterday, and if Whedon does pull this off we’re going to be seeing a new type of Blockbuster that has every chance to get out of control. Should be fun.

Battleship

 There are so many jokes you can put about this movies potential to “sink” Taylor Kitsch career as a star before it really began. It won’t sink Liam Neeson’s career, who could probably take those aliens on by himself. Seriously, this should at least be fun to watch for the roughly half of the movie that is going to be battle scenes.

Prometheus

June 8th, 2012

Prometheus and The Dark Knight Rises are my two most anticipated movies this Summer, and I have no doubt both will deliver. I’ve been hooked on Prometheus since the beginning, with director Ridley Scott’s very secretive stance about whether or not this movie was tied to the ‘Aliens’ franchise upping my curiosity. For those who don’t know, Scott directed the original ‘Alien’, followed that with Blade Runner’, and eventually gave us modern action classics like ‘Gladiator’ and ‘Black Hawk Down’. Yeah, so I’m pretty fuckin’ excited that he’s going back to the franchise that made him famous, even if the two are loosely related.

The Bourne Legacy

I love watching spy movies on the big screen, and I’m not a fan of the James Bond series, so The Bourne Legacy gets my nod. Plus, it’s a great fuckin’ series, and the trailer makes it look we won’t see a crazy drop in quality from the last three.

The Amazing Spider-Man

I wasn’t excited about The Amazing Spider-Man when I saw the latest trailer for the first time. Then I saw it in IMAX-3D.

 

The Dark Knight Rises

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

December 14th, 2012

I chose my words wisely when I said earlier that Prometheus and The Dark Knight Rises are my two most anticipated movies of the SUMMER. My most anticipated movie of the YEAR might be The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. As much as I love Guillermo Del Toro’s work and know that he would have done a fantastic rendition, the amount of awesomeness that is the fact Peter Jackson is back in the director’s chair is simply hard to describe. Did you get all that?
