Girls, the new HBO comedy created by and starring Lena Dunham and executive produced by Judd Apatow, looks like the anti-Sex and the City. A story of struggling girls in their early 20s who are broke and living in the big apple.
Still pissed with HBO‘s cancellation of How To Make It In America earlier this week but considering that Apatow is on board with this new series, we can expect a new Freaks and Geeks coming our way this April 2012.
There’s two Snow hitting the big screens come 2012. While Kristen Stewart battles it out LOTR style in Snow White and The Huntsman, newcomer Lily Collins dons a graceful Snow in Director Tarsem Singh’s Mirror Mirror. A lighter and comedic take on the Brothers Grimm tale compared to the epic storytelling of Rupert Sanders’ Snow White and The Huntsman.
Collins mentioned in an interview that she actually read for the Huntsman film but she wasn’t able to book the stint. Both films offers a different reimagination of Snow White’s tale so it should be interesting. Tagging along with Collins are Julia Roberts, Armie Hammer, Sean Bean, and Nathan Lane.
Mirror Mirror is slated for a March 2012 release while Snow White and The Huntsman will be out come June 2012.
The Dark Knight Rises
Director Christopher Nolan‘s final installment in the Dark Knight saga promises an even darker Gotham, a terrorized stadium, Anne Hathaway, and an Inceptionesque cast. Nolan was initially hesitant about returning to the series for a third time, but agreed to come back after developing a story with his brother and David S. Goyer that he felt would conclude the series on a satisfactory note.
Dark Knight Rises stars Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, Anne Hathaway, Tom Hardy, Marion Cotillard, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Morgan Freeman. It is slated to rise from the big screens on 20th July 2012.

Their journey will take them into the Wild; through treacherous lands swarming with Goblins and Orcs, deadly Wargs and Giant Spiders, Shapeshifters and Sorcerers.
Although their goal lies to the East and the wastelands of the Lonely Mountain first they must escape the goblin tunnels, where Bilbo meets the creature that will change his life forever … Gollum.
