Challenge #169, WOOT!!!

The year is coming to its end, and I thought we could have a special challenge for this special occasion. (Also, I'm hoping that this challenge will boost the overall activity a little bit, because there are plenty of movies to choose from)

So basically, the theme of this challenge is: "BEST MOVIE(S) OF 2012".
Meaning, that you have to make icons of your personal favourite movie (or movies, if you pick more than one) that hit the theaters in 2012. Pretty simple, eh? Like this we can celebrate the past 12 months of awesome movies and see which one gets the most entries!

I made a list of 80 movies that were released this year, so you can browse it and easily select the movies you liked the most. Of course you can also make icons of other movies from 2012 that I didn't include in the list. (I have the feeling I covered quite a lot of them, though.)
I also added some images that you may use if you want to, but feel free to use any other pictures (screen caps, promo pics, posters, movie stills, etc), as long as they are from any 2012-released movie. I figured that 80 pictures would be too much, so I provided one representative image for each of the top 25 largest-grossing movies as per box office worldwide. These ones are marked bold in the list.

You may enter UP TO FIVE (5) ICONS for this challenge! You don't have to make all icons for the same movie - but you can, if you want to. You could even mix different movies in the same icon. You may use the same picture more than once. Whatever you feel inspired to do, just do it, go wild with it and have fun!

Because this is one of the bigger theme challenges and also because of the holidays, this challenge will go for two weeks! So the deadline for all icon submissions is: Saturday, January 5h, 9pm UTC/GMT -> Event Time Announcer
