All the gifts are finally unwrapped and the cinematic class of 2011 has finally been presented. There’s not much left to do now but watch as the clock counts down until 2012.
It should be a quiet time to backtrack and catch up on all those movies that went unviewed opening weekend, but are now present on nearly every critics’ top 10 list. But the studios have kick-started the anticipation for the new year with a herd of new trailers for some of 2012’s biggest potential blockbusters — three in the last week alone.
Holiday moviegoers (or anyone with a decent Internet connection) got their first peeks at “The Hobbit,” “Prometheus” and an extended look at “The Dark Knight Rises.” These trailers joined the already-released group, which includes “The Avengers” and “John Carter” and “The Hunger Games,” among others.
So what big, expensive, effects-laden 2012 movie are you most anticipating? Review the trailers below and then cast your vote in the poll.
“The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey”
“The Dark Knight Rises”
“The Amazing Spider-Man”
“The Hunger Games”
