After the initial play-in and wild card rounds, 16 films have been selected to compete in a series of head-to-head single elimination matches in our March Madness-style bracket.

MTV Movie Brawl 2012

After first-round voting closed on Sunday afternoon, the MTV Movies selection team locked itself in a room with a lot of food, a limited amount of oxygen, and one all-important goal: seed this bracket.

To that end, we weighed a number of criteria to select each film's ranking. We noted first-round voting totals, overall buzz, potential box-office performance and a slew of other benchmarks. The choices were tough. Some arguments were heated. But ultimately we walked away with a 16-team bracket we're proud to offer up for the inaugural MTV Movie Brawl.

But hey, don't agree with us? Show us we got it wrong by voting for your favorite can't-miss flick of the year. After all, YOU are in charge! Just click the bracket above and START BRAWLING!!!
