The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn: Part 2
You must be wondering what makes a film like this in a list toward the nerds and geeks. However, it is easy to explain.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
If you liked “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy, prepare yourself to return to Middle Earth in “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey”. Considering how good the Lord of the Rings films were, it’s hard not to be excited for part one of this prequel of sorts. Martin Freeman seems like a great choice for Bilbo, and it’ll be great to see some of the original LotR cast back.
