I'm sure you will agree with me that 2011 wasn't the greatest year in the film world, and it seems that in general the lack of originality will colour 2012 as well. However, HOLLYWOOD SPY brings you a general overview of the 2012 in cinemas with the hope that you will find at least a few pearls to get excited around this cinematic year. My own favourite will be March with lots of lovely films. The year will have lots of epics, fairy tales and action flicks. Red letters hide links.

    Cinematic spring will kick off in February with some warm stories like long awaited THE VOW in which Channing Tatum plays a man
    whose wife Rachael McAdams forgets she is married to him after a traffic accident, and BIG MIRACLE, an inspiring story about whales with Drew Barrymore and John Krasinski. There's also WANDERLUST with Jennifer Aniston and Paul Rudd. We shall also watch JOURNEY 2: THE MYSTERIOUS ISLAND in which Josh Hutcherson is joined by Dwayne Johnson on a trip to a mysterious island to save his granpa Michael Caine.
    But March is when the fun begins since it brings us the most spectacular visual treats with Tarsem's mega fairy tale MIRROR MIRROR with Lily Collins and Julia Roberts, with Disney's $200
    million sf epic JOHN CARTER with a stunning cast which includes Taylor Kitsch, Lynn Collins, James Purefoy, Mark Strong, Willem Dafoe, Dominic West and others, and then with mythical epic WRATH OF THE TITANS with Sam Worthington and Liam Neeson and Ralph Fiennes as Greek Gods. Fun in March is
    guaranteed by two hilarious and super charming animated flick Dr. Seuss' LORAX and British THE PIRATES: BAND OF MISFITS. Those who like darker stories will enjoy THE HUNGER GAMES with Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth and THE RAVEN with Luke Evans and John Cusack as Edgar Allan Poe.Another fairy tale comes with a gritty version of HANSEL AND GRETEL with Gemma Arterton and Jeremy Renner. But for us who
    love warm and inspiring stories there are SALMON FISHING IN THE YEMEN with a wonderful duo Ewan McGregor and Emily Blunt and THE BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL with Judi Dench, Maggie Smith and Dev Patel.
    April will for some reason be quite poor, with only a few romantic films to cheer us up - THE FIVE YEAR ENGAGEMENT with Emily Blunt and Jason Segel and THE LUCKY ONE in which Zac Effron plays a soldier in love. And then May, as the end of spring will bring MARVEL'S THE AVENGERS in which we shall again see Chris
    Hemsworth as Thor and Chris Evans as Captain America joined by the rest of the superheroes in their fight against evil. In the meantime Alexander Skarsgard and Taylor Kitsch will fight aliens in spectacular action epic BATTLESHIP. We shall also see THE COLD LIGHT OF DAY with amazing cast lead by Henry Cavill, Bruce Willis and Sigourney Weaver.

     May will start with Tim Burton's crazy movie adaptation of famous horror comedy DARK SHADOWS about a family of monsters played by Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer, Helena Bonham Carter, Jonny Lee Miller... After which another film with amazing cast hits cinemas: WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU ARE EXPECTING with Rodrigo Santoro, Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Lopez, Matthew Morrison, Chace Crawford, Elizabeth Banks, Dennis Quaid... The honour to open the summer season will go to SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN with Charlize Theron as the Evil Queen and Chris Hemsworth as the Huntsman,to be
    followed by Ridley Scott's prequel to ALIEN sf epic PROMETHEUS again with Charlize Theron, Patrick Wilson and Michael Fassbender. Dark stories will also be seen in ABRAHAM LINCOLN VAMPIRE HUNTER with
    Benjamin Walker and Rufus Sewell. But for us who love warm stories and fairy tales, there's beautiful animated epic BRAVE about a medieval Scottish princess, epic adventure JACK THE GIANT KILLER with Ewan McGregor and Nicholas Hoult and MADAGASCAR 3: EUROPE'S MOST WANTED. June will also bring us Channing Tatum, Alex Pettyfer and Joe Manganielo as strippers in MAGIC MIKE. July will be very poor bringing mostly sequels and remakes: G.I. JOE2: RETALIATION with Channing Tatum and Bruce Willis, THE AMAZING SPIDERMAN and super hilarious ICE AGE 4: CONTINENTAL DRIFT (caused by Scrat
    off course :). August will end the season with EXPENDABLES 2 bringing all of the old action stars together from Stallone, Schwarzenegger, Lundgren, Van Damme and Chuck Norris to young stars Jason Statham and Liam Hemsworth. We shall also
    watchCollin Farrell and Kate Beckinsale in the remake of TOTAL RECALL, and Nicholas Hoult and Theresa Palmer as zombies in love in WARM BODIES.
    September will bring us the remake of famous JUDGDE DREDD with
    amazing Karl Urban in the lead role, brilliant animated film HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA with Adam Sandler and a stellar voice cast. October will bring nothing special except the long awaited CLOUD ATLAS the new project of THE MATRIX directors. We shall also watch sf thriller LOOPER about a cop who goes back in time to catch criminals with Joseph Gordon Levitt, Bruce Willis and Emily Blunt. But the action starts again in November with big projects such as new James Bond SKYFALL with Ralph Fiennes and Javier Bardem as villains, sf drama GRAVITY with Sandra Bullock and George Clooney (in which apparently they won't have make up at all to get the natural look), and charming animated film THE RISE OF THE GUARDIANS. Keanu Reeves' 47 RONIN epic in which he plays an 18th century samurai will also premiere in November.
    December will finally bring an end to our waiting with the premiere of the year - Peter Jackson's THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY with stellar cast including Cate Blanchett, Luke Evans,
    Ian McKellen, Martin Freeman, Lee Pace... who will portray Tolkien's famous characters. After Hobbits, zombies takes over in Brad Pitt's huge contagion epic WORLD WAR Z which follows the aftermath of a zombie apocalypse around the world. The year will end with Ang Lee's movie adaptation of famous book LIFE OF PI with Tobey Maguire and Gerard Depardieu.

     So, people, tell me, which of the tones of films I've just named attract you most? Which will bring you to cinemas this year?
