Koimoi.com looks at the lineup of Hollywood films scheduled for release in India in 2o12…
Set in the distant future, Hunger Games, is adapted from the novel of the same name. Directed by Gary Ross (Pleasantville, Seabiscuit), the movie follows Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence), a teenager who has to compete against other boys and girls in a battle to death.
When you have Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Captain America (Chris Evans) and the Incredible Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) under one roof, it’s only your pockets that need a saving. Expect some unforgettable verbal duels and action from this superhero mish-mash!
The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo
The first part of the Millennium Trilogy, this nail-biting thriller will finally see light of the day in India this year. Considering that the film has already created much hype abroad, this Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara starrer hopes to intrigue Indian audiences as well.
Men In Black III
The last time we met Agent J (Will Smith) and Agent K (Tommy Lee Jones), it was a bitter-sweet parting. The secret agents are back to kick some alien back in Men In Black III, with a nice little reunion with director Barry Sonnenfield and time travel!
The Amazing Spider-Man
To say that the last Spider-Man movie disappointed us would be an understatement. Andrew Garfield has a sticky web to fill, but with director Mark Webb (500 Days Of Summer) helming The Amazing Spider-Man, we’re looking forward to Spidey making a new start.
The martini clinking, womanizing, gadget-wielding British spy is back after a hiatus of more than three years. Daniel Craig will get the ladies swooning once again with Skyfall.
The Dark Knight Rises
Need we say more?
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
After the The Lord Of The Rings trilogy, director Peter Jackson returns to the world of hobbits, dwarves, wizards and humans in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.
The Great Gatsby
Accustomed to his lavish sets, musicals and large canvas, director Baz Luhrmann adapts F. Scott Fitzgerald’s unforgettable novel to the silver screen in The Great Gatsby. What has us more hooked is the star cast: Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan, Tobey Maguire and our very own Amitabh Bachchan.
From the man who gave us Hannibal, Black Hawk Dawn and American Gangster, director Ridley Scott’s Prometheus, is going to be a dark and spine-tingling wait.
The Bourne Legacy
Minus Matt Damon, will this Bourne movie live up to its legacy? Tony Gilroy might have scripted the previous Bourne movies, but as a director, will he and actor Jeremy Renner pack a punch?
