Below is the list of my 50 most anticipated movies releasing in 2012, its just a initial list as i would be posting the 2nd one before the start of Awards season. I'll be writing the reasons too.

Top 25 Most Highly Anticipated Movies:

1. The Dark Knight Rises

(The Obvious reasons......)

2. Gravity

(Director Alfonso Cuaron who made Children of Men, the plot, Cuaron and Cinematographer Lubezki's visual style and George Clooney also it is said that it has some groundbreaking visual effects very ahead of time like Avatar and i suppose Cuaron will add some one take scenes too which is his style)

3. The Master

(3 words - Paul Thomas Anderson, who is known for his iconic movies like There Will be Blood, Magnolia, Boogie Nights and Punch Drunk Love)

4. Django Unchained

(Quentin Tarantino - Enough)

(A big fan of Joe Wright's work of adaptations like Pride & Prejudice and Atonement and that Kiera Knightley is playing the lead)

7. Prometheus

(2 things - Ridley Scott + Sci-Fi Movie)

8. Lincoln

(the only reason is that the best working actor of current times Daniel Day-Lewis is playing the title character, he is known for his intensive preparation for the roles and working in less films, he gave the best performance any actor have ever given since Marlon Brando in Paul Thomas Anderson's There Will Be Blood)

12. Inside Llewyn Davis

(Directed by one of the best directors the duo Joel and Ethan Coen and the story seems interesting)
