My Top 10 Films of 2012

It’s that time of year again, so here are my top 10 films of 2012.

I think it’s fair to say that it’s been a very hit and miss year for film this year with some exceptional releases scattered throughout 2012, but with some completely disappointing films filling in the months between (Anything involving Taylor Kitsch, I’m looking at you!). From the end of trilogies (The Dark Knight Rises) to the start of new ones (The Hunger Games, The Amazing Spider-Man), to the combination of many film characters into one big blockbuster (Avengers Assemble) and to some brilliant novel adaptations (On The Road, The Perks Of Being A Wallflower), we’ve certainly had it all. Read below to see what I thought of the year in film, and feel free to let me know what you thought about the year too.

I still need to see a couple more films, so for a constantly updated list you can visit my Letterboxd page.

‘Captain America 2’ To Be Filmed in Present Day

(Written for Lost In The Multiplex)

With Captain America: The First Avenger being released on DVD and Blu-ray this week (25th Oct), writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely have told The HD Room that the sequel will stick mostly to Marvel Universe‘s present day. Seen as though that’s where the first film ended, I think this is something we had already predicted anyway.

“I think it’s safe for us to say that it’s primarily set in the modern day,” says Markus. “That seems to have been the biggest question people have been wondering about regarding the sequel… [We]’ve been left with room to explore Cap entering the modern day wondering, ‘What is all this? What’s happened to the world?’”

(Written for Lost In The Multiplex)

If you’re a fan of Marvel’s The Avengers, this week has seen an overhaul of images released to help promote the film. With headshots, magazine covers and even more photos, it seems we’ve been a little bit spoilt.

The photos come from Entertainment Weekly, who have gone The Avengers mad this month. They’ve published a series of character headshots for The Avengers team which they have also used on their cover. Their feature also includes a character profile for each member which you can read more about here. Here are some scans of photos that are featured in the magazine too.

It’s Been a ‘Super’ Week for Marvel and DC

This week sees the trailers of two of the most anticipated and upcoming superhero films, the epic conclusion to Christopher Nolan‘s Batman trilogy, The Dark Knight Rises, and Marc Webb‘s first in a series of rebooted Spider-Man films, The Amazing Spider-Man. Captain America is out in cinemas next week and a (good quality) trailer is due for The Avengers shortly. With the Comic-Con this week, as well, everyone has gone Marvel and DC mad.

First up there’s Captain America which is released in UK cinemas next week on 29th July. Only a short time to wait until the year for the following three films. However, Captain America is the last of The Avengers team that we need to meet so it’s about time. Captain America is the story of Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) who is deemed unfit for military service and volunteers for a top-secret research project, thus turning him into Captain America, a superhero dedicated to defending America’s ideals.
