New Upcoming Movies in 2012 - Part 1

Looking for the best new upcoming movies in 2012? Then look no further! I'm putting together a list of trailers of all the movies I think look like the ones to watch out for this year.

There are loads of new movies coming out in 2012 so I'm going to break this up into at least 4 parts, the first being movies from January through to March. The next will be April through May, and so on, you get the idea. I'll also do a fifth part of movies that don't currently have a release date but are slated to come out this year and are worth casting an eye on.

So without further ado, check out the list of new upcoming movies in 2012. Enjoy!

This is one movie I'm most looking forward to this year.
