HOLLYWOOD SPY'S SPOTLIGHT ON STARS WHO WILL DOMINATE 2012 IN CINEMAS! CHARLIZE THERON, EMILY BLUNT, EWAN MCGREGOR, CHANNING TATUM, JUDI DENCH

 While you were reading HOLLYWOOD SPY's big spotlight on all 2012 films, I'm sure you've noticed some names repeat, some stars will be busier than others, so here's a spotlight on actors who might dominate this cinematic year.
CHARLIZE THERON
After many years spent with the adoration of the audience, but without
any big hits and big films in her sleeve, Charlize Theron could finally hit it big this year. Beside a possible second Oscar nomination for her role in THE YOUNG ADULT, she will also have two huge blockbusters which might finally make her a profitable actress, which she deserves both with her talent, beauty and charisma: she will be a member of a spaceship crew in Ridley Scott's sf epic PROMETHEUS and then she will be the amazing Evil Queen in SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN and we have already seen in the trailer that she clearly dominates the film. Let us keep our fingers crossed for her.
EMILY BLUNT
Besides, Charlize, another amazingly talented and unbelievably gorgeous and charismatic actress who will star in tones of films this
year is English rose Emily Blunt. We shall watch her in romantic drama FIVE YEARS ENGAGE- MENT next to Jason Segel, and then in sf action LOOPER next to Bruce Willis and Joseph Gordon Levitt about cops who go back in time to catch criminals. She will go back to romance in SALMON FISHING IN THE YEMEN next to Ewan McGregor, and in ARTHUR NEWMAN, GOLF PRO in which Collin Firth and her play two people who, trying to escape their past, move into an abandoned house together.
CHANNING TATUM
When it comes to boys, the face you will be seeing most is Channing Tatum's. He has six films released this year: TEN YEAR, about a
group of friends who reunite ten years after their high-school graduation, HAYWIRE, Steven Soderbergh's action packed film, 21 JUMP STREET, the remake of famous TV show this time in the big screen version, MAGIC MIKE, which is the story of his own early days as a stripper with Alex Pettyfer, Matthew McConaughey, Joe Manganielo stripping with him in it, G.I. JOE 2: RETALIATION, the sequel to the sf blockbuster and THE VOW, in which he will play a husband whose wife, Rachel McAdams, loses all memory of him and their marriage after a car accident.
EWAN MCGREGOR
Our favourite English star Ewan McGregor might also get back into track with five of his films ready to hit cinemas in 2012: the biggest will
be JACK THE GIANT KILLER, fantasy epic in which he plays a royal guard. He will also star in above mentioned SALMON FISHING IN THE YEMEN and HAYWIRE. Two of his projects with interesting scripts are THE IMPO- SSIBLE, a suspenseful and disturbing story of a family with gets in the middle of Tsunami attack in Asia, and PERFECT SENSE, a sf film about a love story in the middle of an outbreak of a disease which leaves people without all their senses.
YOUNG STARS OF 2012
When it comes to young stars who might use a number of their projects to hit the stardom, there's Nicholas Hoult, whom you've seen last year in X-MEN 1ST CLASS, and who will take the lead role in fantasy epic JACK THE GIANT KILLER and in WARM BODIES, a film about
zombies in love. Young Josh Hutcherson will have lead roles in JOURNEY 2: MYSTERIOUS ISLAND and in THE HUNGER GAMES, along with roles in RED DAWN alongside Chris Hemsworth and in CARMEL as a teenager wanders into a small town where he is introduced to the art-forgery community. Also very busy this year is Jim Sturgess, who will have interesting roles in sf films UPSIDE DOWN and CLOUD ATLAS and also in ASHES next to Luke Evans.

JUDI DENCH
When it comes to our favourite ladies, her Royal Majesty Judi Dench (bow immediately) will amaze us in wonderful BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL, about a group of senior people (her best friend Maggie Smith is among them) who move to India only to find their new promised luxurious home isn't luxurious at all. She will boss James Bond around in SKYFALL and will play Anna Marie Hoover in Clint Eastwood's J.EDGAR.
HUNKS OF THE YEAR
Two of the actors who will probably be the main hunks of 2012 are Chris Hemsworth and Taylor Kitsch. Chris has lead roles in SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN and in AVENGERS, and also in RED
DAWN, in RUSH as a formula 1 driver. Taylor Kitsch on the other hand has the lead role of his life in sf epic JOHN CARTER, and then also a lead role in another sf epic BATTLESHIP. He will also be an unfortunate drug dealer in SAVAGES next to Salma Hayek and Blake Lively.

  1. There is so much AWESOME in this post! Bows down to Her Majesty Ms. Dench.

    Prostrations completed, I have to say I'm looking so forward to seeing Charlize in Prometheus and Snow White. And the men!! Do you know, I don't think I've ever seen Channing Tatum in a film, but I kind of like the look of Haywire. Plus it has Mr. Fass my Benders in it. :))

    1. yes, we must bow for Her Majesty Dench :)
      You know I adore Ewan, Fass My Benders and Channing, but I'm not watching HAYWIRE, don't like such violent flicks. But the cast is great (if we don't count the lead actress)

    2. I kind of respect the fact that the director went with a real fighter instead of some skinny actress with a stunt double to play the part. But we'll have to see if she pulled it off. Hope so.

    3. yep, I respect that too, but I don't think she has the charisma nor looks needed for the lead role.

  3. Haywire, Haywire, Haywire...That is my flick to see. I love my kick butt babes. Charlize is going to rock it this year and I can't wait for Prometheus. Emily's got some great stuff coming out, too.

    Ewan has some great looking films coming out and of course, Magic Mike. Now that is definitely one film that comes in a close second. All that hotness, Yow! ;)

  6. They all sound like they should have a great year, but whether or not that continues depends on if the movies are actually good. We shall see. I'm sure GI Joe will be the greatest one of all...pffft.

  9. Hey Dezz - the new commenting setup is looking good over here!

    What a line up of great movie stars! I'm a fan of just about all of them, Judi, Charlize and Ewan are right up there at the top!

    That SF Epic John Carter intrigues me, so does the yummy Taylor Kitsch - sounds like he's going to be a busy boy this year!!

    On a side note:
    I'm going to see the 3D release of Beauty and the Beast with the offspring! She was too little when it first released, back in the dark ages, so we are very excited to catch it on the big screen. (I'm not sure about the 3D bit)

    Great post Dezz! (as always)

    Cheers, Jenny @ PEARSON REPORT

  11. A horde of talent there tough choices

  12. I still don't understand why someone as talented as Ewen McGreggor didn't tell his pal George his dialogue was the worst in the galaxy. How come he's not in Prometheus, I wonder?

    1. beat me if I know, and why would anyone star next to atrociously bad Natalie Portman and Hayden Christensen?

  13. I really wouldn't mind seeing lots of Ewan McGregor :)
    Although it would be better to see lots of Cillian ;)

  14. I am seriously looking forward to Prometheus.

  15. I'm hoping Taylor Kitsch does a better job on John Carter than he did as Gambit ..

    Nicholas Hoult seems to be everywhere recently too; he did a good job as Beast in First Class.

    1. I hope so too, but the rest of the cast is too amazing
      Hoult is everywhere, I like that he kinda stole the spot from Aaron Johnson among young models turn actors Brits :)
