What Will Be 2012's Highest Grossing Movie?

List of predictions for the highest-grossing movies of 2012. In March of 2012, the film adaptation of the popular young adult novel "The Hunger Games" earned $152.5 million in its opening weekend. This was the third-highest opening weekend ever, and the largest March film opening in history. It set off speculation that "Hunger Games" may end up being 2012's highest-grossing film.

However, a number of very high-profile releases scheduled for the remainder of the year challenged this assertion. Marvel's long-awaited comic book series "The Avengers" - featuring a cavalcade of stars from the previous films in the franchise, such as Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Chris Evans and Samuel L. Jackson - arrives during the summer. (The company is also debuting a new "Spider-Man" franchise starring Andrew Garfield.)

Additionally, that OTHER massively popular young adult franchise - "Twilight" - will see the final film in the cycle released in 2012, "Breaking Dawn: Part 2." And as if this weren't enough, 2012 also brings with it Christopher Nolan's final Batman film, "The Dark Knight Rises," and the first chapter of Peter Jackson's return to the world of Middle-Earth, "The Hobbit."

So what will eventually be 2012's highest-grossing film? Vote below for the movie you think is the most likely to take the title! And also check out Ranker users' picks for The Most Anticipated 2012 Films to see how well expectations have met up with box office success!
