POLL: Which of These Summer Blockbusters Are You Most Anticipating?

Brave (2012)

On this week’s Film Misery Podcast I shared that for the first time in a while it is actually the blockbusters that I am anticipating this Summer more than the independent films. Huge profile titles from well respected filmmakers are on their way and I am eagerly awaiting many of them.

If I had to choose one blockbuster that I am anticipating this Summer more than any other, it would have to be Pixar’s Brave. It has now been two years since the last great Pixar film and three years since their last original story, which seems like a gruesomely long wait for an animation studio that had been so consistent. Summer for me is never quite complete without a solid Pixar film and all signs indicate that Brave should be a great one for them. Not only is it their first film that features a female protagonist, but it also seems to show a lot of love for gingers, which are my people. I cannot wait to see it.

Which blockbuster film are you most anticipating this year? Vote in the poll and share your thoughts in the comments!

  • “Avengers” is looking like it could be pretty good, so I’m definitely looking forward to that. However, for me it’s “Brave” as well, simply because of Pixar’s track record. “The Dark Knight Rises” is a close second, though.

  • I am rather looking forward to the grandiose excitement we’ll no doubt get from “The Avengers”, “The Dark Knight Rises”, and “Prometheus”. “The Amazing Spider-man” looks like it could be something interesting, and I’m remaining optimistic on that one. “Brave” is a very close second, since Pixar seems to be picking up on a sudden stream of re-invigoration after an unfortunate detour with “Cars 2”. I think we’ll see a lot of great work from them in the next couple years.

    But the film I am most anticipating is still “The Bourne Legacy”. That series keeps on getting better with each installment, and though I’m not certain what new direction they’re taking with this film, the mere mention of Bourne is enough to get my pulse going. Plus it’s opening on my birthday, and I’d much rather see that than “Total Recall”.

    Out of all of those, the one I’m probably looking forward to the most is Prometheus for the curiosity factor alone. I’d love to finally find out what the hell is going on in that movie, plus the cast is stunning and it could be a return to form for director Ridley Scott.

    From your list, second would have to go to The Avengers, then Brave, The Amazing Spider-Man, The Bourne Legacy and The Dark Knight Rises. I’ll just pretend Battleship isn’t even on your list.

  • Here is the thing, i am very curious to find what the hell is Prometheus about too. The Bourne Legacy for Jeremy Renner because i really like him and obviously i love the franchise. The Amazing Spiderman might be a good movie but in any case i am looking forward to it, not quite confident about their choice of director for a movie like this but Garfield and Stone are looking good together.

    I wasn’t too excited for The Avengers but after the reviews, i am. Brave i have high expectations for the movie this time not the studio!

    And the winner is THE DARK KNIGHT RISES …. i mean obviously …..!!!!
