What will be the best commercial films of 2012?

People say that 2012 is going to be the year of interesting commercial films. There were no big commercial fims in 2011. The typical things of a commercial film are: high costs, a lot of visitors in cinemas, famous actors, and the latest and most amazing special effects and tricks. These types of films are usually not high quality, but quality isn't important for film companies because they only care about money and they usually make a lot of money.

But, there are some high quality commercial films, for example "The Lord of the Rings," "The Matrix," and "Avatar".

There are going to be three big commercial films this year:"The Hobbit," "The Dark Knight 2," and "Prometheus" by Ridley Scott. Prometheus should be the most amazing commercial film of the year. Ridley Scott is a well-known director thanks to his films about aliens. Prometheus will give us new information about the history of those aliens. Prometheus is the name of a spaceship and the story is about the discovery of the beginning of life on Earth. The beginning is hidden far away in the universe on a planet many light-years away.

The film is a scifi-fantasy and we will see a big war between two different civilizations. It cost around 200 milion dollars and many scenes were filmed in Iceland. You can see the official trailer in the video. The trailer was already seen by 6 million people.
