Sundance 2012 Preview: The 10 Films Most Likely to Arrive in Theaters This Year

The Sundance Film Festival may be this magical land full of new movies you’ve never seen or heard of until your local news does a puff piece about celebrity parties, but it really is one of the most important film festivals in the world. Last year over 40 films were sold at the festival based in Park City, Utah, with many of them landing in theaters throughout 2011 (and some, like Martha Marcy May Marlene, now up for big awards). This is a festival that will ultimately help shape the movies landscape over the next year (or two), and that’s why we pay so much attention to what’s screening there.

So with that said, we took a look at this year’s slate of films and selected ten that will most likely arrive in theaters later this year. We’ll be on the ground throughout the fest bringing back word on many of these, but for now read up and tuck this info into that part of your brain that anticipates new movies because you’ll be seeing a lot more of the following in the months ahead.
Take a look at our 2012 Sundance Film Festival Preview gallery and be sure to check in on our Indie Guide for the latest from Park City, Utah. And for even more coverage, check out The Ultimate 2012 Sundance Film Festival Trailers Page, courtesy of
