12 Most Anticapted Films for the Summer '12.

This is my most anticipated films for the Summer of 2012 (Google says that's "Wednesday, June 20, 2012, and ends Friday, September 21, 2012."). Seems like a short time period but Google rarely steers me wrong. Sorry, Prometheus/Safety Not Guaranteed (June 8th) and Looper (September 28th), better luck next time. Also, if the film did not have an official release date by today - it's not on the list, I'm looking at you Cosmopolis.

They are in order of their release date - Let's do this:

Read notes
  • Brave
  • Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter
  • Seeking a Friend for the End of the World
  • Beasts of the Southern Wild
  • The Amazing Spider-Man
  • Savages
  • Ted
  • The Dark Knight Rises
  • Ruby Sparks
  • The Bourne Legacy
  • The Campaign
  • Lawless


  • Can't wait for Brave!

  • I hope Pixar's status rebounds back to God-tier with Brave after that stint known as Cars 2.

  • @Sinner: I think nearly everyone would agree with you on that.

    The unfortunate thing is, though Cars and Cars 2 were by far their worst films to date. Cars was their most lucrative project. From marketing, toys, and every other merchandising product. Overall Cars made them worlds more money then their other films. So, I can see why they did a Cars 2. Though, they could of been a bit loftier with their attempt.

    Just like Ryan, I can't wait for Brave, though either!

  • Cronos is probably right though. I just wished Monsters INC was just as lucrative or are monsters so "been there, done that"? Talking, humanized vehicles naturally aren't :P

  • They are definitely made for children. At the same time though, every single one of Pixar's other films were, from a story telling standpoint, made amazingly well. While still technically catering to children. Except for Cars, which if I'm being totally honest, is actually just a Michael J. Fox film from the 90's called Doc Hollywood - with cars instead of actors.

    Can't be mad at Pixar for wanting to make money, though.
