12 films we're FROTHING AT THE MOUTH to see
These films are arriving, VERY SOON. And we can't contain our excitement.
Okay. Let’s face it. This weather sucks. And unless you’ve got your bags packed for a trip to Fiji then you'll have to weather the storm with the rest of us like some bitter sea captain.
You could of course sell everything you own to try to pay for a one way ticket to sunnier climes, but if that doesn't sound viable, then the second best way to escape is to take a trip to the cinema. So sit back, and get yourself VERY EXCITED with our run-down of the films that are we are quite literally FROTHING AT THE MOUTH TO SEE in 2012...
