Best Movie of the Year — 2012 ScreenCrush Awards

It’s that time of year for the 2012 ScreenCrush Awards, where we look back and rank the best of movies and TV. We’ve recapped all the greatest movie trailers, movie posters, TV series and sitcoms, and even the best cosplay and fight scenes, but now we’re naming the best movie of 2012! Vote for your pick in our poll after the break.

The cinemas were a box office battle ground between the two most anticipated superhero movies so far: ‘The Avengers‘ and ‘The Dark Knight Rises.’ It was a showdown between Marvel and DC; the long-overdue teaming up “Earth’s mightiest heroes” and the finale to Christopher Nolan‘s iconic Batman trilogy. However, 2012 was all the year ‘The Twilight Saga‘ came to its epic conclusion with ‘Breaking Dawn – Part 2,’ the year the first film in Peter Jackson‘s ‘The Hobbit‘ movie trilogy hit theaters and the year for Quentin Tarantino‘s latest, ‘Django Unchained.’

There are still tons more noteworthy movies that made 2012 a great year to spend in theaters. Now it’s time to decide which was the best of them all. Check out the list of movies up for Best Movie of 2012 below, and be sure to vote for your favorite in our poll at the bottom of the page.
