Wow, we're already a month into 2012. Can you believe it? Hell, it seems like yesterday when we were looking forward to the New Year. Now, we're already 1/12 of the way done with it! Despite how fast it feels at the current moment, years are actually pretty damn long. Because of this, it's pretty easy to forgot about mediocre films. A year after the fact, I always gawk in amazement that certain films came out the year previously. It seemed like such a long time ago, yet it's only been twelve months. Below is fifteen of these films, the unsung losers of 2011. They may not be bad...but they are certainly forgetable.
Some actors have greatness from the beginning, while some develop greatness overtime. Whatever the case may be, these six actors featured below delivered star performances in a great many films, and were forever in the public eye in this past year. And in my eyes, that is a great achievement worthy of praise. I wouldn't exactly call this a list of the best actors of the year; more like the most popular, most relevant in the public eye. From veterans to newcomers, these are the six actors who established a foothold on their popularity in the year of 2011.
How can an image be exactly what you would expect well at the same time being freaking excellent? Well, just ask Daniel Day Lewis.

So if you guys didn't know, Harry Potter is ending this summer. I know, big secret, right? Between the thousand posters and countless TV spots, it kind of got lost in the shuffle. But you know what won't get lost? This trailer. Because its the last Harry Potter trailer that we will ever see again.
After months of anticipation, J.J. Abrams' love letter to the works of Steven Spielberg has found its way to the big screen. But is the film the next Close Encounters, or another Kingdom of the Crystal Skull disaster? Time to shine an Abrams-approved lens flare on one of the years biggest films!
If you haven't been paying attention the last few years, let me explain how huge a project Tintin seems to be. A joint production between Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson, Tintin uses revolutionary motion capture technology. Apparently the character is huge outside the US, and fans everywhere have been curious of what Spielberg and Jackson have been doing. The film has a huge price tag and, if this one makes bank, Peter Jackson will be directing the sequel. A lot hinges on this film's success. But does the first footage show the next Avatar, or just another Robert Zemeckis abortion?
All good things must come to an end, and that includes Summer 2011. We've seen a lot of great looking films, but we're not done yet. August is still here, and it's one of the biggest months of them all. So without further ado, check out the final 13 movies of Summer 2011 after the jump.
From the beginning, Thor was expected to have the most difficult production of all the Marvel movies. Well his other Avenger cronnies stuck to science fiction formula, Thor was a different breed all together. Believe it or not, Norse superheros aren't that scientific, nor believable, and Thor was going to have to find away to bridge the gap between itself and The Avengers. On top of all of that, it had to deliver a mainstream film that audiences would like without taking away the fantasy elements geeks would swoon over. Now, with the film's release already upon us, can we validly say the film succeeded in juggling all of these elements?
To put it bluntly, a resounding "YES."
Fox releases another trailer for X-Men: First Class; prays no one will notice its the same exact footage we've already seen.
