The 50 biggest films of 2012

On The Road is #49 in the Guardian's list of biggest films in 2012.

On The Road (UK release date TBA): Could 2012 be the year that Sal (Sam Riley) and Dean (Garrett Hedlund) finally hit the road? Executive producer Francis Ford Coppola has held the film rights to the era-defining beat novel since 1979, but numerous attempts to get the sprawling travelogue by Jack Kerouac (pictured) on to the screen have puttered and died. Filming on this version began in 2010, with director Walter Salles (The Motorcycle Diaries, Linha de Passe) in the driving seat, so it's not unreasonable to expect this to come barrelling into town, whooping and hollering "Go Go GO!" some time soon.
