A peek at the top of the box office chart for 2012 gives a fairly clear indication why Hollywood continues to favour genre fare. Of the top 10 performing films from last year, only three drifted outside the fantasy, science-fiction or comic-book film oeuvres, and each of those was an animated movie.
It should come as no surprise, then, that the forthcoming year looks set to offer a plentiful bounty of fanboy-friendly films. In fact, there is so much to look forward to that I hope you'll forgive me for the brevity of some of the descriptions below.
Sci-fi aficionados ought to be in for a particular treat and the lineup of superhero-themed movies also looks extremely promising, with hardly a Green Lantern or Catwoman in sight. »
