Now that 2011 is finally drawing to a close, it's time to look ahead at the big films and big names that will be greeting us on the other side of 2012. Here's hoping the Mayans are wrong!
nMark Wahlberg heads up this crime thriller about an ex-master criminal who, wouldn't you know it, gets pulled back into the game when his brother botches a heist for an unforgiving heavy. Co-stars Giovanni Ribisi, Kate Beckinsale, and Lukas Haas. In theaters Jan. 13. Watch the trailer
The Iron Lady
nFresh from its limited, award-baiting run, comes the wide release of the Meryl Streep-starring take on the life of divisive former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. Co-starring Jim Broadbent, Anthony Head, and Richard E. Grant. In theaters Jan. 13. Watch the trailer
Sony Pictures
Underworld Awakening
nKate Beckinsale returns to her pet horror action franchise as vampire warrior Selene - this time, her kind (as well as their mortal enemies, the werewolves) find themselves targeted by humans who aim to wipe them out for good. In theaters Jan. 20. Watch the trailer
nSteven Soderbergh directs real-life mixed martial arts fighter Gina Carano in this taut spy thriller. She's an acting newcomer, but she's backed up by a jaw-dropping cast: Ewan McGregor, Michael Fassbender, Michael Douglas, Antonio Banderas, Channing Tatum, Bill Paxton and Mathieu Kassovitz. In theaters Jan. 20. Watch the trailer
nRalph Fiennes stars in and directs this modern retelling of the Shakespeare play about a war hero who gets betrayed by his home city and teams up with his mortal enemies to get revenge. In theaters January 20th. Watch the trailer
Red Tails

Starring Terrence Howard, Cuba Gooding Jr., Bryan Cranston, and rapper Ne-Yo. In theaters Jan. 20. Watch the trailer
The Grey
nLiam Neeson stars as the head of an Alaskan oil rigging team that ends up stranded in the harsh wilderness after a plane crash. Neeson being Neeson, instantly straps broken bottles to his fists and begins punching wolves. The wolves really should have seen that coming. In theaters Jan. 27. Watch the trailer.
One For the Money
nKatherine Heigl, still insisting that people want to see her in movies, stars as a newly-divorced woman who gets a job as a bail bondsman. The rest of the cast clearly took the title at face value. In theaters Jan. 27. Watch the trailer
Man on a Ledge
nNot to be confused with the documentary "Man on Wire," "Ledge" stars Sam Worthington ("Avatar") as an ex-con who threatens to jump from a Manhattan high-rise while, suspiciously, a diamond heist is being pulled off at the same time. Coincidence? In theaters Jan. 27. Watch the trailer
The Woman in Black
nDaniel Radcliffe takes on his first major post-Potter release, playing a young lawyer who is summoned to a remote village in order to sort out a late client's estate. Once inside the spooky old house, however, he quickly discovers that ghostly things are afoot. In theaters Feb. 3. Watch the trailer
Safe House
nDenzel Washington goes bad again as an international criminal who ends up on the run with a young CIA agent (Ryan Reynolds) when the titular safe house in South Africa is destroyed. Is this all Denzel's plan? Is he a not-so-innocent bystander? Will Reynolds be able to corral Denzel better than Ethan Hawke did? So many questions. In theaters Feb.10. Watch the trailer
The Vow
nChanning Tatum and Rachel McAdams co-star in this heartstring-tugger about a woman who ends up with severe amnesia following a car accident, which forces her husband to try and win her love all over again. In theaters Feb. 10. Watch the trailer
Journey 2: The Mysterious Island
nThis sequel to Brendan Fraser's 3D "Journey to the Center of the Earth" wisely ditches Fraser and replaces him with The Rock. In this story, The Rock and some kids head to a mystical island filled with strange creatures to rescue the boy's adventurer grandfather (Michael Caine). In theaters Feb. 10. Watch the trailer
Star Wars: Episode 1 - The Phantom Menace in 3D
nGeorge Lucas kicks off the 3D re-release of the entire Star Wars saga with, naturally, Episode 1 (Lucas is releasing the films one at a time, in chronological order, over the next six years). In theaters Feb. 10. Watch the trailer
Ghost Rider: The Spirit of Vengeance
nNicolas Cage returns for another try at translating Marvel Comics' demonic hero (the first installment was, to put it mildly, terrible). This time, the guys behind "Crank" and "Gamer" are behind the camera, so expect ridiculously over-the-top action. In theaters Feb.17. Watch the trailer
This Means War
nIn this twist on "Mr. & Mrs. Smith," Tom Hardy ("The Dark Knight Rises") and Chris Pine ("Star Trek") play secret agents who fall for the same girl (Reese Witherspoon) and put their spying skills to work going after each other. Directed by "Charlie's Angels" director McG. In theaters Feb. 17th. Watch the trailer
nPaul Rudd and Jennifer Aniston play a hip Manhattan couple who get slapped down by the economy and decide to go live on a commune. Directed by "Role Models" and "Wet Hot American Summer" mastermind David Wain. In theaters Feb. 24. Watch the trailer
nAmanda Seyfried ("Red Riding Hood") stars in this by-the-numbers thriller as a woman who suspects that the serial killer who kidnapped her two years prior (but, presumably, failed to kill her) has returned to finish the job. Or not. In theaters Feb. 24. Watch the trailer
The Devil Inside
nA woman whose mother killed three people during an exorcism attempts to uncover the truth in this documentary-style horror flick. She comes to regret that decision. In theaters now. Watch the trailer
