Great films in 2012 - level 3, A12
What are the best commercial movies of 2012 going to be?
People say that 2012 is going to be the year of interesting commercial movies. There were no top commercial movies in 2011. Typically, almost all commercial movies have: a high budget, a lot of visitors in cinemas, famous actors, and the latest and most amazing special effects and tricks. This type of movie usually doesn’t have a very high quality but that isn't important for movie companies because for them, the money is what counts (and they can earn a lot of money).
However, we can also find some high quality commercial movies, for example, "The Lord of the Rings," "The Matrix," and "Avatar".
There are going to be three big commercial hits this year, "The Hobbit", "The Dark Knight 2" and "Prometheus" by Ridley Scott. This last one should be the most amazing commercial movie of the year. Ridley Scott is a well-known director thanks to his films about aliens. Prometheus will provide new information about the history of those Aliens. Prometheus is the name of a spaceship and the story is about the discovery of the origin of life on Earth. The explanation about the origin of our life is hidden far way in the universe on a planet many light-years away.
The movie is a scifi-fantasy and we can expect a big battle between two different civilizations. The budget was around 200 milion dollars and many scenes were filmed in Iceland. You can see the official trailer in the video. The trailer was seen by 6 million people. This is already a lot of people and the movie is not even out yet.
