Holiday moviegoers watched new trailers for many of 2012’s top fantasy movies including The Dark Knight Rises, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, Men In Black 3 and Prometheus in addition to previously released trailers for The Hunger Games, The Avengers and John Carter. A readers survey at the Hero Complex blog of The L.A. Times ranked John Carter as the most anticipated movie of 2012 with The Dark Knight Rises and The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey in the second and third slots. In an earlier interview, Mark Strong, who plays the alien leader Matai Shang, told fans to expect a dazzling mix of sci-fi and a period backdrop from director Andrew Stanton, making his first live-action feature after a series of Pixar films. »
Taylor Swift's not the only one bringing music to District 12 (and beyond).
Win Butler, the Decemberists and Regine Chassagne of Arcade Fire will also be contributing to the "Hunger Games" soundtrack, which is being overseen by uber-producer T-Bone Burnett, according to Variety.
News of other contributors to the soundtrack comes hot on the heels of last Thursday's surprise holiday gift from Taylor Swift -- her "Hunger Games" single with the Civil Wars, "Safe and Sound," which became iTunes' most downloaded song on Friday.
The "Hunger Games" soundtrack will also feature "Horn of Plenty," a song written by Butler, Chassagne and Burnett, and "One Engine," recorded by the Decemberists.
Meanwhile, T-Bone Burnett and James Newton Howard are collaborating on the film's instrumental score. Howard recently replaced Danny Elfman, who had to forfeit the "Games" due to scheduling conflicts with "Men in Black III" and "Dark Shadows."

2012 will bring with it a slew of new films, several of which we are already super excited to see.Check out toofab's picks of 20 Movies To See in 2012, listed below by release date! "John Carter," March 9, 2012 -- Starring "Friday Night Lights" hottie Taylor Kitsch, this fantasy adventure film looks like a cross between "Gladiator" and "Avatar." In other words, this movie looks awesome. "Mirror Mirror," March 16, 2012 -- In the first of two Snow White films to hit theaters in 2012, Lily Collins stars as the fairest of them all, with Julia Roberts along in a hysterical turn as the Evil Queen.

We’re not saying, based on the number of hours we spent in front of the TV following the highjinks of the Banks family, that we love them more than our actual families. We’re just saying, it’s not unusual to see us cry…when we see the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air reunion pic Will Smith posted to Facebook today.
“Got the Holiday season started right with a “Fresh Prince of Bel Air” reunion…there’s nothin’ like spending Holidays with fam!,” the Men In Black III star writes. Snapped at a luncheon for Hilary’s…we’re sorry, Karyn Parson‘s charity Sweet Blackberry, the photo features Will, Tatyana Ali, Alfonso Ribeiro, and James Avery, though tragically Geoffrey and the two Aunt Vivs are absent. You’ll be glad to know we just had our coworkers tie us to our chair to stop us from spastically launching into the Carlton dance over this. »

We're suspicious of trailers, but the first real glimpses of the Dark Knight Rises and The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey were too big to miss
The big story
We don't normally get that excited about trailers. They have their place, but for the most part they're slippery, unreliable things - a keyhole shot of a bigger idea, designed to sell their wares to the largest audience, with little regard for the nature of their source material.
That said, there were a couple of promos released this week that even brine-soaked snobs like us couldn't ignore. Tuesday saw the release of the Dark Knight Rises trailer, the first real look at Christopher Nolan's third and final Batman film. Our go-to-guy for all things bat is Ben Child, who finally switched off the Bat Signal he'd installed on his roof and welcomed the caped crusader's return. "As with the best trailers, »

This weekend's round-up kicks off with further progress on Disney's $215million film adaptation of The Lone Ranger, which starts shooting in about six weeks.
HeatVision reports that British actor James Frain (right), recently seen on True Blood, has joined the project as a tough foreman who oversees railroad workers and whose boss is the story's chief villain Latham Cole (to be played by Tom Wilkinson).
Also adding another cast member is the Warner Bros prequel 300: Battle of Artemisia.
Eva Green, who was Bond girl Vesper Lynd in Casino Royale and played evil Morgan le Fay in the Camelot series (see picture above), is reported to be in talks to play Artemisia, a "ruthless, gold-covered goddess who persuades Xerxes »

The last couple of months have produced feeble results at the North American box office so it's pleasant to report that as 2011 winds down, this weekend produced some thrills and spills – even if several titles trailed in the wake of their franchise predecessors. The exception to this and the big story of the weekend was Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, which enjoyed a thunderous limited launch through Paramount and can mean only one thing: Tom Cruise is back.
Cruise works a publicity campaign like nobody on Earth. Will Smith – who is preparing a comeback of his own with Men in Black III (out summer 2012) – is pretty incredible in this department too, but Cruise is the master. A Hollywood agent told me last week how he has been pressing »

Focus Features has announced 2012 release dates for three of its upcoming movies, Being Flynn (March 2), Seeking a Friend for the End of the World (April 20), and Moonrise Kingdom (May 25). Being Flynn and Moonrise Kingdom are slated for limited release, while Seeking a Friend for the End of the World is opening wide.
Being Flynn, based on Nick Flynn's autobiography Another Bullshit Night in Suck City, will open against The Lorax, Project X, and Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters on March 2. Being Flynn stars Robert De Niro, Julianne Moore, and Paul Dano.
Seeking a Friend for the End of the World is going up against Ms One: Maximum Security, Chimpanzee, The Lucky One, Scary Movie 5, and The Wettest County on April 20. Steve Carell, Keira Knightley, and Connie Britton star in Seeking a Friend for the End of the World.
2012 is really shaping up to be a busy year for comic book fans, but while the likes of The Dark Knight Rises, The Avengers and The Amazing Spider-Man have been grabbing all the headlines, there is another panel-based property heading into cinemas next year and no, we're not talking about Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance. Yes, it's those Men in Black - Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones - who are reprising their roles as Agents J and K almost ten years after their last adventure for the sci-fi comedy sequel Men in Black III, which has just received its first official trailer courtesy of Sony Pictures.
Along with Smith and Jones, the third outing sees the return of Barry Sonnenfeld and Steven Spielberg as director and executive producer respectively, while Rip Torn is also back as Chief Zed, head of the Mib. Newcomers to the cast include Josh Brolin »
Right about now, all of the studios are rolling out previews for their big 2012 films. Recently, we've seen the release of the Men in Black III teaser, a new Battleship trailer and poster and, if you venture out to see Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, you can find The Dark Knight Rises prologue in theaters.

... or to take arms against a sea of troubles - those of 3D.
As I wrote this article, heated debates broke out between my brother and I - he being strongly pro-3D and I anti-3D. He thinks within five years most movies will be filmed and projected in 3D; I disagree, stating 3D shall go the way of the dodo (once again). The 'pro' contingency believes 3D films are a better experience and far more enjoyable than 2D (normal vision). What a load of hype! It’s all to do with money. Don’t get me wrong - if people don’t attend cinemas the movie industry makes no profits and collapses – and I am definitely against this. I just say we don’t need 3D gimmicks to experience a true cinema experience. Some say 3D is a revolutionary change in the history of cinema just like the »
Rock of Ages, the ill-advised film adaptation of the Broadway show featuring the music of such groups as Journey and Poison, released its first trailer today, and it is definitely... something that exists! To be honest, the past few days we've seen a lot of trailers for movies that feel disappointing already, from Battleship to Men In Black III, and throwing another one on the pile just makes me feel tired. And I don't want to put you through that pain, so instead of watching Tom Cruise and Catherine Zeta-Jones embarrass themselves, I've compiled five videos you can watch instead of this trailer. 1. Jobriath Performing "Rock of Ages" on a Musical Special Hosted by Gladys Night 2. Rock of Love Bus Trailer 3. "Rock Lobster" by The B52s 4. Deeply Off-Putting Wig Fashion Show 5. A Short Documentary On the Three Classifications of Rocks So [...] »
Here come the Men in Black...again. For Men in Black III, franchise director Barry Sonnenfeld has brought time travel into the mix as well as Josh Brolin to portray a young Agent K (usually Tommy Lee Jones) alongside Will Smith's Agent J. Other than those new little tidbits, Mib III looks just like its predecessors. Of course, Mib III will be in 3D...
The films first trailer was released today, after the new poster (pictured above, partially) hit the web weeks ago. »

'Men In Black' Trailer Premieres
After ten years, the Men In Black are back with a trailer that looks decidedly like the two previous movies. The preview mostly sets up the story’s main arc, and ends with a twist that everyone already knows about. Check it out for the return of Will Smith after a three year absence from the movies and for an example of perfect casting.
'Drive' Sequel Novel Coming In April
The book that spawned the brilliant summer surprise is getting a sequel. »

Men in Black 3 Trailer. Barry Sonnenfeld‘s Men in Black 3 (2012) movie trailer stars Will Smith, Alice Eve, Josh Brolin, Emma Thompson, and Tommy Lee Jones. Men in Black 3‘s plot synopsis: “In Men in Black 3, Agents J (Will Smith) and K (Tommy Lee Jones) are back… in time. J has seen some inexplicable things in his 15 years with the Men in Black, but nothing, not even aliens, perplexes him as much as his wry, reticent partner. But when K’s life and the fate of the planet are put at stake, Agent J will have to travel back in time to put things right. J discovers that there are secrets to the universe that K never told him — secrets that will reveal themselves as he teams up with the young Agent K (Josh Brolin) to save his partner, the agency, and the future of humankind.”
It’s been a busy weekend for trailers. We already brought you a first peek at the new clip for Men in Black III, but that was just the beginning. Read on for a chance to see some of the newest clips creating buzz in Hollywood. If you ever wondered what would happen if someone made The Sixth Sense as a 3D cartoon, then this new trailer for ParaNorman might be the answer you’ve been looking for. Featuring the voice talents of Kodi Smit-McPhee, Casey Affleck, and John Goodman (along with countless others…), this preview looks like a sort of kid-friendly take on Shyamalan’s classic chiller. Norman (Smit-McPhee) can talk to the dead, so when his town comes under attack by zombies and other paranormal monsters, it’s up to him to save the day. The...
