The Most Anticipated 2012 Films

Movies that came out in 2012 that you, the Ranker Community, were most excited to see.

What are the most anticipated films of 2012? A number of films that came out in 2012 were introduced with a ton of hype, are based on massively popular source material or are the continuation of venerable, long-standing film franchises. It promised to be a competitive year at the box office. A number of respected, big-name directors - including David Cronenberg, Quentin Tarantino and John Hillcoat, among others - released new work in 2012. And of course, the genre of comic book adaptations continues chugging along, with new films featuring Batman, Spider-Man and, naturally, The Avengers scheduled for release.

Find your favorites and vote them up to make this the definitive guide to hotly anticipated 2012 films on the Web. And if the male leads of these blockbusters get your heart racing, check out Hottest Guys of Summer 2012 Movies.
