2012 was a big year for movies. We saw the third highest grossing film of all time, the end of perhaps the greatest superhero trilogy ever made, the start of the latest young adult book-based franchise, and the beginning of another hotly anticipated trilogy that would take us back to Middle-Earth.
And that doesn’t include big surprise hits like Ted, the return of James Bond, and the rebooting of an only 12 year-old mega movie franchise. But amidst all these major movie blockbusters that garnered all the media hype, it was easy to miss some great movies that were in the 2012 lineup. We don’t want you to miss out on these hidden gems, so we wanted to put together a list of the best films from 2012 that you probably don’t even remember coming out.
Hit & Run
It’s not often that action movies with big names like Bradley Cooper and Kristen Bell go under the radar, but this action-comedy about a former getaway driver on the run from his old gang didn’t generate much buzz when it released earlier in 2012.
After spending time in the witness-protection program, Charlie Bronson (Dax Sheperd) vows to get his new girlfriend to LA in time for the interview of a lifetime. Unfortunately, her jealous ex-boyfriend digs up his past and alerts his old crew. Chaos and car chases ensue in this witty film that sees Bradley Cooper playing a neurotic gangster and Tom Arnold as a less-than-proficient US Marshall as they both try to track down Bronson.
If cars, explosions, and clever action one-liners are your movie preference, be sure to pick up Hit & Run soon.
