Batman, the Hobbit… top 2012 movie trailers on YouTube

With the start of a new year comes the excitement of new films to look forward to. And 2012 is shaping up to be one hell of a good year.

There is all sorts on offer. We have superheroes, a return to Middle earth, and an iron lady, to name but a few.

And film trailers for the big hitters have started to make an appearance on YouTube, giving film fans a tantalising teaser of what’s to come. So which trailers do you need to be watching?

Batman: The Dark Knight Rises

The last Batman film, the Dark Knight, was a phenomenal success. It breathed some well-needed fresh air into what had become a bit of a joke of a franchise.

But with film director extraordinaire Christopher Nolan on board, Batman has been given a dark edge that is proving popular with fans. And this film looks set to do just the same, with all our old favourites back in action to fight some new baddies.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

This is set to be the biggest film of 2012. The success of the Lord of the Rings trilogy has pretty much guaranteed The Hobbit to be a runaway success, we just hope it lives up to the hype.

And from the look of this trailer, fans will not be disappointed. Peter Jackson has returned to what he does best – making JRR Tolkien’s fantasy books come alive. Martin Freeman stars as Bilbo Baggins, with Ian McKellen returning as Gandalf.

The Iron Lady

This biopic of Margaret Thatcher is released in January next year, so it’s not far off! Starring Meryl Streep as the Iron Lady herself, this film is set to be a hit of King’s Speech levels.

Streep is stunning as Thatcher, with the resemblance an uncanny one. If she doesn’t get an Oscar for the performance, something has gone seriously wrong.
