The Words (September 7, 2012) – This romantic drama follows the life of a young writer who finally celebrates success after his book becomes the next great American novel.  The only thing that would make his life better, though, is if he had actually written it.  The film stars Bradley Cooper, Jeremy Irons, Dennis Quaid, Olivia Wilde and Zoë Saldana.

Toys in the Attic (Na Pude) (September 7, 2012) – The plot sounds a bit like a mix of Toy Story and The Wizard of Oz so, if it’s done right, it could be pretty good.  The toys in the attic know that there are two parts of the attic – the West which is a happy place and the Land of the Evil in the East.  The unthinkable happens when Buttercup is kidnapped by the sinister Head of State, leaving her three friends – a teddy bear, a mechanical mouse and a marionette puppet – no choice but to attempt to rescue her.  To do it, they will have to cross the terrifying international boundary.

House at the End of the Street (September 21, 2012)- Hunger Games fans will be thrilled to see Jennifer Lawrence in the role of Elissa, a girl who moves to a small, upscale town to start a new life with her recently divorced mother, Sarah (Elisabeth Shue).  Unfortunately, they quickly learn that there’s a deep, dark secret about the house next door – a girl vanished after killing her parents in their sleep.  As Elissa finders herself in a relationship with that family’s sole survivor, Ryan, the danger they face becomes more and more apparent.

End of Watch (September 21, 2012) – Taylor (Jake Gyllenhaal) and Zavala (Michael Peña) are young LAPD cops who work the beat in South Central.  In a realistic twist, audiences will see the plot unfold as seen through the lens of the HD cameras of the police officers, surveillance cameras, citizens and gang members, allowing us to see the complexity of the problems from several points of view.

Frankenweenie (October 5, 2012) – Tim Burton is back with another macabre children’s movie just in time for Halloween.  In a play on the classic Frankenstein tale, young Victor desperately turns to science to bring back his recently deceased dog, Sparky.  Even though he does his best to hide the reanimated version of his pooch, the whole town quickly learns all about the pup.  The film is in black and white and will be offered in 3D.

Alex Cross (October 19, 2012) – Fans of the best-selling James Patterson books will want to see Alex Cross brought to life as a brilliant homicide detective/psychologist (Tyler Perry) hunting down a dangerous serial killer (Matthew Fox).  When their cat-and-mouse game gets a little too personal, Cross must weigh compromising his limits over solving the crime.

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 (November 16, 2012) – It’s going to be hard but after this final instalment, Twilight fans will have to accept that the film adaptations of the popular Stephenie Myers books have come to an end.  In this sweeping, epic love story, the fates of Bella (Kristen Stewart), Edward (Robert Pattinson) and their loved ones will be revealed.
