The Collection

Before the World Ends

With the Oscar's approaching and The Sundance Film Festival in full-swing, we at Through the Lens deemed it necessary to compile a film related list of our own. But rather than choosing 'Best Pictures' or a 'Best Actor' we decided to go with a less ambitious list of what we consider to be the most anticipated movies of 2012.

According to Mayan prophecy this will  be our last year upon our beautiful Earth, so the films below may very well be (but probably not) the last films we ever see. So here is our list of the most anticipated movies you should see before the world ends!

5. The Hunger Games
This film holds a special place on the list because it's the only film based on a World-Wide best selling novel. Unlike last years The Girl with The Dragon Tattoo,  The Hunger Games is an insanely popular teen novel, and if recent history has taught us anything it's that movies based around teenage drama/romance turn out to be terrible moves (Yes we mean you Twilight). The Hunger Games makes it onto our list despite the previous statement because it actually appears to have some substance to it. With mostly newbies to the acting field, THG also pulls in vets like Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, and Donald Sutherland. With bits of Sci-Fi, Action, and directing by Gary Ross, The Hunger Games looks to be worth the ticket price when it comes out this March.

4. Wrong
The end of the world gotcha feeling down? Well Wrong may be just the right movie for you! This quirky, hilarious looking film is currently being screened at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival. Starring Jack Plotnick, Wrong is about a man who wakes up one morning to realize he has lost the love of his life, his dog, Paul. Sounds heart warming right? View Wrong's trailer below and you'll quickly realize why its made the list.

3. Skyfall
2012 marks the return of James Bond. Fans feared they may have seen the last of him when MGM filed for bankruptcy in 2010. Luckily they've bounced back and a new Bond film is schedule for release this November. While plot details are scare, Skyfall sees the return of Daniel Craig as the daring Mi6 agent. But what's got us most excited is that Javier Bardem is on board to play as the villain of the film. Sorry, no trailer for this one.

2. Moonrise Kingdom
This year Wes Anderson makes his return with his first live-action movie since 2007’s The Darjeeling Limited and his first full-length feature since 2009’s animated Oscar nominee Fantastic Mr. Fox. Moonrise Kingdom, written partly by Anderson and partly by Roman Coppola, is about a modest New England town whose inhabitants must come together to search for two missing young lovers. Set in the 60s, the film is a rare period piece for Anderson and will feature two newcomers (Kara Hayward and Jared Gilman) as the runaways. The remaining cast is filled with recognizable names: Bruce Willis, Edward Norton, and Frances McDormand. You may also will be happy to hear that Jason Schwartzman and Bill Murray are also on board.

1. The Dark Knight Rises
Was there any doubt this wouldn't be on the list? This may be perhaps the most anticipated film of the last decade. Christian Bale reprises his role as the Dark Knight one last time in the Christopher Nolan directed epic. The Dark Knight rises concludes a trilogy that, for the last few years, Nolan has artfully pieced together. This final piece stands to be the best in the series and is sure to satisfy audiences world-wide. Hopefully when The Oscars roll around next year the film will garner the nomination the last one so deserved.
