Best Romance Films 2012
Anna Karenina (Knightley) has an affair with a dashing young Count (Johnson) who wants her to leave her stable husband (Law). Based on Leo Tolstoy’s classic novel, this has Shakespeare In Love writer Tom Stoppard penning the screenplay, Atonement director Joe Wright, and Keira Knightley starring, so should be a serious awards contender. A key difference between this and earlier cinematic versions is it’ll concentrate less on the title character and more on creating a portrait of a community. Much of the Russian melodrama’s power was in its ability to shock but today having an affair isn’t nearly so daring or scandalous. Still if it’s an epic love story you’re looking for, this is it.

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2
Starring: Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, Anna Kendrick
Director: Bill Condon
Out: 16th November 2012

Love Movies Coming Soon In 2012
After the birth of their vampiric daughter, the Cullens gather other vampire clans in order to protect the child from a false allegation that puts them in front of the Volturi. The plot of the novel is waaay out there, with the vampire baby talking like an adult and Jacob Black kinda falling in love with it when it’s two years old. I expect this’ll get toned down considerably, the actress playing the kid is ten years old for a start. They’re also adding a bigger climactic battle scene than was in the book. The director of Part 1 remains in charge. Given this movie is expected to make $700 million+ theatrically, the studio has said that the series is likely to continue beyond it, as a TV show at the very least. By this point you’re either a huge fan or not. [Critics: 48%] [Public: 5.8]
