What will be the best commercial films for the year 2012?

People say that the year 2012 will have some very interesting commercial films. There were no big commercial fims in 2011. The typical things for a commercial film are a lot of money, a lot of visitors in cinemas, and the best special effects. These films are usually not high quality, but quality isn't very important for film companies because money is more important. And they usually make a lot of money.

But, we can see some high quality commercial films, for example: "The Lord of the Rings," "The Matrix," and "Avatar".

There will be three big commercial films this year, "The Hobbit," "The Dark Knight 2" and "Prometheus" by Ridley Scott. Prometheus can be the best commercial film of the year. Ridley Scott made films about aliens. Prometheus will give us new information about the history of those Aliens. The story is about the beginning of life on Earth. We can find the beginning far away in the universe on a planet which is many light-years away.

The film is a scifi-fantasy and we will see a big war between two different civilizations. The film was 200 milion dollars and it was filmed in Iceland. You can see the trailer in the video. 6 million people saw this trailer.
