Upcoming 2012 Romantic Movies
Adaptation of the lighthearted smash hit musical built around classic rock hits from the 1980s, especially glam metal bands, from performers like Styx, Journey, Steve Perry, Poison and Asia. The story’s about a young couple (including Footloose’s Hough) falling in love during the last days of a Hollywood bar/club called The Bourbon Room. Cruise plays an aging rocker who’s performing his last gig there, before the mayor (Cranston) shuts it down. The director of Hairspray seems a good match with the material.

Top Romantic Movies 2012
Rom-com about a successful novelist (Dano) who overcomes writer’s block by creating the woman he thinks will love him. Things get complicated when he ends up actually willing her into existence. She’s played by Zoe Kazan, Dano’s real-life girlfriend, who also wrote the script. This is from the husband-and-wife directors of Little Miss Sunshine, who have been struggling for five years to get another movie off the ground. With reported shades of Charlie Kaufman, this has good buzz. [Critics: 79%] [Public: 7.2]

Step Up 4: Miami Heat
Starring: Kathryn McCormick, Ryan Guzman, Misha Gabriel, Peter Gallagher
Director: Scott Speer
Out: 27th July 2012

Best Romance Films 2012
The daughter of a wealthy businessman (McCormick), arrives in Miami with dreams of becoming a professional dancer. Her aspirations get side-tracked when she falls in love with a young man (Guzman) who leads a dance crew in elaborate, cutting-edge flash mobs. When her father threatens to develop the crew’s neighbourhood, displacing thousands, she turned the dance teams into protest mobs. The movie series is shifting to Miami so it’s yet another new couple as the leads. Although Moose and Camille are still there as support. New star Kathryn McCormick is from TV’s So You Think You Can Dance. The director helmed TV’s Legion Of Extraordinary Dancers. Step Up 4 will be in 3D, like the last one. It’s all more of the same. They probably ought to pull a Fast & Furious next year and bring all the leads together for the ultimate dance-off. [Critics: 43%] [Public: 6.2]

Director: Leslye Headland
Out: 7th September 2012

2012 Romantic Movies
Regan (Dunst) is used to being first at everything, so is horrified to find the girl everyone called Pig Face (Wilson) in high school is going to tie the knot before she does. Regan sucks it up and takes on bridesmaid duties along with her childhood pals: one a promiscuous substance-abuser (Caplan), the other a ditz (Fisher). The single ladies are determined to put bitterness aside and have a hedonistic bachelorette party, which will be filled with major wedding-dress panic, various bodily fluids, and cute ex-boyfriends (Marsden etc). It all sounds a lot like Bridesmaids, last year’s smash hit. The director is untested but Will Ferrell and Adam McKay are sole producers. Supposedly it has a budget of $3m which is absolutely tiny.
