Next Movie has created two lists of 30 Actors and 30 Actresses people should watch out for in 2012. We are very happy to see all of ‘The Hunger Games’ three leads, Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth, are all in the lists!
First up, let’s take a look at why Jennifer Lawrence made it into the “30 Actresses to Watch in 2012” list!
Starring in: “The Hunger Games” (March 23); “The Silver Linings Playbook” (Nov. 21)
Why It’s a Big Year: There was a virtual battle royale in Hollywood over which hot young actress would land the coveted role of Katniss Everdeen in “Hunger Games,” but Lawrence came out on top thanks to her “Winter’s Bone” mystique (playing Mystique didn’t hurt). Securing a plum role opposite Bradley Cooper in a David O. Russell comedy is the cherry on top of a watershed year.
Next, we have Josh Hutcherson in “30 Actors to Watch in 2012” list. He will be appearing in 3 movies this year. We are unsure if ‘Red Dawn’ will be released in Singapore though. ‘Journey 2: The Mysterious Island’ will be released in Singapore on 19 January 2012 while ‘The Hunger Games’ will be released in Singapore on 22 March 2012.
Starring in: “Journey 2: The Mysterious Island” (Feb. 10)’; “The Hunger Games” (March 23); “Red Dawn” (Nov. 2)
Why It’s a Big Year: Hutcherson has been acting since he was 9, but 2012 looks like his career high. With a hat trick featuring one family-friendly sequel, one gritty ’80s remake and one teen-lit phenomenon, Hutcherson is set to catch fire, particularly as the irresistibly sweet male lead Peeta Mellark in “The Hunger Games.”
Last but not least, we have Liam Hemsworth, also featured in “30 Actors to Watch in 2012” list. ‘The Hunger Games’ will be released in Singapore on 22 March 2012. As far as we know, there’s no release date for ‘The Expendables 2’ in Singapore yet.
Starring in: “The Hunger Games” (March 23); “The Expendables 2” (Aug. 17)
Why It’s a Big Year: With “The Hunger Games,” Hemsworth will finally move out of brother Chris and girlfriend Miley’s shadows. The Aussie hunk has thousands of fans anxiously waiting to see him play Gale, heroine Katniss Everdeen’s best friend, in the dystopian thriller. Plus, he’ll star opposite Stallone & co. in the “Expendables” sequel.

As 2011 draws to an end, for many media, it’s time to draw up a list for most anticipated movies in 2012. Contact Music has drawn out a list too where ‘The Hunger Games’ is placed on #4. Here’s what Contact Music has to say about ‘The Hunger Games’:
4. THE HUNGER GAMES (Mar)
The studio clearly hopes that this is the next big franchise. It’s a futuristic thriller based on a series of books about teens (casting gold Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson) who are forced to fight to the death in some sort of hyper-nasty reality game show. The books are reportedly amazing, which always helps.

The whole world will be watching “The Hunger Games” indeed! Hunger Games fans had voted vigorously during voting period and eventually beaten out other hot favorites such as ‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1’, ‘The Dark Knight Rises’, ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’, ‘The Avengers’, ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’ and ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’. Movies such as ‘Prometheus’, ‘Skyfall’ and ‘Dark Shadows’ were also in the running.
Here’s what MTV has to say:
In one of the bigger upsets of these end-of-year polls, Katniss KO’d Bella (Batman, Spider-Man and Snow White, too). Not bad work for a character who hasn’t even been seen on the big screen yet. The approaching year is easily the most exciting in recent memory; when “The Hobbit,” “The Amazing Spider-Man” and a new Bond film don’t even crack the top three you know 2012 is shaping up to be a cinematic year for the ages. What’s more, the “Hunger Games” win has got to come as welcome news to Lionsgate as the studio prepares to launch a new YA-adapted franchise the same year as the “Twilight Saga” finishes up its box-office run. — E.D.
We are sure Lionsgate will be delighted to hear there’s such a overwhelming support for ‘The Hunger Games’ even though this is the first movie yet to be released!
