Don't find yourself trailing the crowd

We're barely into 2012, but I'm worried you're already behind.

Hey, I get it. The end of the year is a stressful and busy time. You'd have loved to spend your free time glued to a computer. Unfortunately, you didn't have any free time.

Well, now you do, and it's time to see the hot new movie trailers you've missed. There are some cool movies coming out in 2012, and we're starting to get our first official looks at them.

Let's dive in:

"Prometheus" (June 8) is the maybe, sort-of, at-one-time-was-meant-to-be prequel to "Alien," directed by Ridley Scott.

"The Dark Knight Rises" (July 20), the conclusion of brilliant director Christopher Nolan's trilogy of fantastic Batman films. (If you can't tell, I'm very excited about this one.)

"The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" (Dec. 14), which brings Peter Jackson, "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy back to Middle-Earth for the first half of a prequel story based on "The Hobbit" by "Rings" author J.R.R. Tolkien.

"Brave" (June 22) is a new adventure from Disney-Pixar. Really, that's all you need to know.

"The Avengers" (May 4) trailer has been out some time, but part of the superhero blockbuster was shot in Cleveland, so you should probably watch it again. Just to be safe.

"The Amazing Spider-Man" (July 3) is a reboot of the superhero story, which, like "The Avengers," stems from the world of Marvel Comics. (OK, I know you've seen this, too.)

"The Hunger Games" (March 23) is the adaptation of a book you or a young person in your life has read. It takes place in a bleak future. Enjoy!

"Snow White and the Huntsman" (June 1) has Snow White, an evil queen and a mirror on the wall, but no sign of drawfs.

Hope you enjoyed the show.
