Staying ahead of the fashion curve into the 2012 year promises to be a difficult task, but thankfully  (unlike most portions of pop culture) the cinematic influences poised to bolster the piercing and jewelry world give us something both exciting and helpful: previews!  Some of the most anticipated new releases that are sure to filter into new body jewelry fashion crazes are already showing us peaks of what’s to come.  Just take a look.

When I first heard that there was an English language remake of one of my favorite foreign film series headed for the theatres, I was a little bit annoyed to see new actors playing the characters I’d come to love.

The one thing that’s undeniably amazing about MGM’s rehash of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo though, is that the original image of it’s pierced, tattooed, and sometimes mohawked heroin is left intact.  The fashion impact?  Plain silver hoops like those worn by Rooney Mara (who got piercings in her ears, eyebrow, nose, septum, lip, and nipple for the film) are already on their way to a comeback, but once the remake drops just before the new year, they’re likely to become an even hotter commodity.

2012 will be another lucrative year for fairytale film with Universal Pictures’ Snow White and the Huntsman, slated for its U.S. release in June.

Adding a new darker and more empowered spin to the traditional tale isn’t even a risk with actors like Thor‘s Chris Hemsworth (the huntsman) and Twilight‘s Kristen Stewart (Snow White), and neither is the choice of accessories.  Wide band rings reminiscent of armor have already begun a slow fashion climb, but leading up to the premiere their aesthetic value might just skyrocket.

Another genre that’s still going strong is that of the super hero, as Marvel’s new undertaking, The Avengers (set for a May release) promises action, suspense, and a slew of A-list character reprisals.

Among those lending their faces and/or vocal skills to the film: Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston as Thor and Loki, Robert Downey Jr. and Gwyneth Paltrow as Iron Man and Pepper Potts, Chris Evans as Captain America, and Paul Bettany as the voice of Jarvis, just to name a few.  For it’s fashion say so, we’ll be seeing more of the same, as black leather, bullet caps, and plugs bearing super insignia are certain to stay strong well into 2012.

Other upcoming blockbusters that may lend piercing and jewelry fashion a hint of magic in the coming year include the Amazing Spiderman, the Hobbit, reimaginings of Jack and the Beanstalk (Jack the Giant Killer) and Hansel and Gretel, and the latest installments to the Dark Knight, Ghost Rider, and Men in Black franchises.  Only time (and box office ratings) will tell.
