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.

Trailer Trash Feature: 24th September – 7th October

(Bi-weekly feature written for Lost In The Multiplex)

From a fifth Die Hard instalment to a new DreamWorks animation, we’ve got a bit of everything this week. If you want a few giggles this week then Jason Bateman has his identity stolen by Melissa McCarthy in the new trailer for the upcoming comedy Identity Thief, or if it’s suspense you’re after then Mia Wasikowska is getting suspicious of Matthew Goode in the trailer for Stoker. We even have a Native American Johnny Depp. Keep scrolling for more!

Trailer Trash Feature: 12th – 25th May

(Bi-weekly feature written for Lost In The Multiplex)

It’s that time again, and this week we have a couple of great new trailers, but not a lot more. With the release of highly anticipated trailers involving characters such as the classic Jay Gatsby and the provocative but vigorous James Bond, as well as a certain Channel 4 news anchor and his pals. Other than that though, it is very much a week for first trailers for film’s you are likely not to of heard much about unless you have attended the Cannes Film Festival this month. Still, it is a very interesting look at what cinema will have to offer over the rest of the year.

New ‘Skyfall’ Teaser Trailer

(Written for Lost In The Multiplex)

After the release of the first official poster for Sam Mendes’ latest James Bond film, Skyfall, earlier this week, we know have the first official teaser trailer.

Based on Ian Fleming’s 007 character and the twenty-third James Bond film altogether, Skyfall sees the return of Daniel Craig in the lead role as Bond must track down and destroy the threat that has attacked MI6, no matter how personal the cost, as his loyalty to M is tested when her past comes back to haunt her.

First Set Pictures for ‘Skyfall’ and 007 Daniel Craig

(Written for Lost In The Multiplex)

The first photographs from the new James Bond film, Skyfall, have made their way online this week as Daniel Craig films scenes for the film in Trafalgar Square, London on Saturday (19th November).

“It, I think, has all the elements of a classic Bond movie, including, to quell any rumours, a lot of action,” Director Sam Mendes said during a recent press conference.

Now we can make begin to make a judgement for ourselves, as the pictures below show Craig suiting up to reprise his role as 007.
