Generation Film’s Top 15 Most Anticipated Films of 2012

15. Gravity– though it stars George Clooney in a space suit which might invoke horrors of the remake of Solaris it is safe to put some trust in director Alfonso Cuaron with another science-fiction endeavor after the success of Children of Men.

14. Argo– the third directing project from Ben Affleck is worth anticipating since his last two, Gone Baby Gone and The Town, have successfully highlighted his new (or actual) talent behind the camera.

13. World War Z– a long awaited adaptation led by Marc Forrester…could be very entertaining but also poses risks for the Quantum of Solace director.

12. The Hobbit– only part one but it will be a Geekbananza for all of the Lord of the Rings fans highly looking forward to the prequel installment.

11. Cosmopolis– a David Cronenberg film that can only be brought down having cast the wax figure Robert Pattinson.

10. Lincoln– Spielberg and Daniel Day Lewis teaming up for a personal and epic tale focusing on one of our most beloved presidents should make for an interesting film to say the least.

9. The Wettest County– the next film from Australian director John Hillcoat (The Proposition, The Road) this film is written by Nick Cave and has an all-star cast including Gary Oldman, Tom Hardy, Guy Pearce, Jessica Chastain, and Mia Wasichowska.

8. Prometheus– obviously a prequel to Alien (although there is some dispute over that) it is a return to a genre Ridley Scott helped define and should have some thrills, shocks, and intense action.

7. Cogan’s Trade– the third film from New Zealand director Andrew Dominik following the violent study of Chopper and the movie as poetry Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, should provide for an interesting film also starring Brad Pitt.

6. Stoker– South Korean director Chan-Wook Park’s English speaking debut, which will be quite intriguing considering his filmography—Oldboy, Lady Vengeance, Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance, Thirst, and Joint Security Area.

5. Moonrise Kingdom– Wes Anderson returning to his live action style of awkward family dramatic comedy which is always a promising and unique cinematic adventure.

4. Django Unchained– another violent, darkly humorous, and pseudo-historical film from the twisted mind of Quentin Tarantino about an ex-slave hunting down the man who killed his family that has an all-star cast featuring Jamie Foxx, Leonardo DiCaprio, Kurt Russell, Sacha Baron Cohen, and Don Johnson.

3. Only God Forgives– another Nicholas Winding Refn film starring Ryan Gosling should make for another great film especially after the surprise that Drive was this past year.

2. Inside Llewyn Davis– the Coen Brothers bringing us a drama about a fictional folk singer during the Greenwich Village period, which should show their versatility as well as stars Carey Mulligan and Oscar Isaac.

1. The Master– probably a controversial film about Scientology but what makes it such a draw is because it’s directed by the master himself Paul Thomas Anderson and stars Phillip Seymour Hoffman and Joaquin Pheonix.
