Tossin’ It Out There: What’s YOUR Most Anticipated Movie of 2013?

2013-WallpaperWell, folks, now that the MAJOR Awards are behind us, we can put 2012 to bed for good. A brand new movie year has already begun, full of promise. All the best of and worst of lists reset, as an entirely new release schedule awaits.

What 2013 movie has you excited? Which one(s) are you anticipating most? Is it one of the many Superhero films we’ll be getting (we have new offerings pending this year from Superman, Iron Man, Wolverine and Thor)? How about some of the big sequels, like “Anchorman 2″, “Star Trek into Darkness” or the next chapters of “The Hobbit” or “The Hunger Games”? There are original offerings in the mix, too. Tom Cruise’s “Oblivion” has been heavily promoted of late, M Night Shyamalan tries to resurrect his failing status by working with Will Smith and son in “After Earth”, and Stallone and Schwarzenegger are due to reunite in “The Tomb.”

For reference, complete lists of known 2013 releases can be found on Wikipedia, here, and at Box Office Mojo, here!

So let’s hear it, what are YOUR Most Anticipated movies of 2013? Which movies are YOU looking forward to the most?

  1. ’42’ and ‘The Wolverine’. The first because it’s Jackie Robinson, and that makes it a must, and the second because it’s a classic Wolverine story, and filmmakers have much to make up for.

    • Yeah, “The Wolverine” intrigues me too. I actually picked it (in a gamble, mind you) as my most anticipated Superhero movie of the year, over Iron Man 3, Thor 2 and the new Supes. I know the story they’re jumping off of, everyone wants to save face after the last one, and Jackman is still the personification of that character. ;)

      And they better not mess up “42” LOL

    • Carrie, huh? We’ll see if any of this year’s horror remakes live up to their originals, I dont think we’ve had a good one in awhile.

      I can’t wait for Pacific Rim. Just the concept alone sounds like so much fun! :D

      • Mmm. It’s a good film, but I’m not sure it would ever make my “Movies That Everyone SHould See”, if you know what I mean. I may have to revisit in order to double check.

        CGM is pretty talented though, I’ll definitely give you that!! :D

  2. MONUMENTS MEN!!! When I first heard about that movie I was jumping up and down mentally for about a week. So excited!
    Close behind that are The Wolf of Wall Street, Star Trek Into Darkness, Catching Fire, Ender’s Game, and sort of The Great Gatsby because it has DiCaprio and I love the book.
    I’m also excited for The Place Beyond the Pines which is technically from 2012 but it’s just coming to theaters this March for some reason.
    I’m also conflicted about Stoker. I’m not sure if I should see it or not because it looks creepy but I can’t tell if it’s creepy in a good way or a way that will scar me for life.
    Anyway, I’m happy that these things are back! Loved the major awards but I missed tossin it out there.

    • Well! There you go. LOL. I hadnt heard about that, and now I’m in! LOL Clooney directing, with some great co-stars? Hell yeah! Plus that does seem like a cool high concept! :D Nice one Melissa!

      I hope “Ender’s Game” is half as sick as the book is. There’s no way Hollywood has the guts to make it AS sick as the book was, so just give me half as sick, you know?

      Place Beyond the Pines is 2013 as far as I’m concerned too, and indeed it looked pretty awesome. Made my most anticipated list on my podcast, so… I’m with you!

    • I’m with you on that, Hunter! I’m already looking forward to March when they’ll start shooting Monuments Men. :) I’m contemplating on reading the book while I wait for the movie – not sure if that would be a good idea or not.

      • I always feel that seeing movies first is better because books generally have more detail. That way you won’t be disappointed when the movie leaves things out. Though of course it’s different with every story.

      • Yes… that’s why I’m undecided on what to do. I saw The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo first, and am only now reading the book, finally, and I’m happy I’m doing it this way around.

  3. Evil Dead, that red band trailer was seriously messed up. Dam it I hope it works. There are sequels to my favorite films of 2009 and 2010; Star Trek Into Darkness is not technically a sequel but you get the idea. KICK ASS 2 Balls to the Wall, I want it to be as great as the original. I just saw the trailer for 42, I had a lump in my throat. That story deserves a fantastic film. Gatsby is a great novel without a great film, hopefully this year will remedy that.

    • Yeah, I have hopes for Gatsby too. There’s so much style in the trailers, I just hope I accept it rather than reject it, lol.

      I like that Evil Dead red band trailer too. But I’m not holding my breath, too many horror movie remakes have sucked for me not to have my guard up, you know?

      42 should be good, it’s a great story, I think it’ll be hard to botch it! (Hope)

  4. Oh man, this will be a great year – Idris Elba in Pacific Rim and that Mandela movie, Dujardin in Mobius and The Wolf of Wall Street, Fassy in tons of stuff and Lee Pace in next The Hobbit :D The one I’m waiting for the most is probably The Wolf of Wall Street – saw some stills with DiCaprio throwing lobsters at people and yelling, there are few things that make me laugh harder than when Leo yells :P

    • LOL. I anxiously look forward to your .gifs, mocking that. :D

      That’s practically a crush list you’ve got going on there Sati! :D Although I’m right there with you on Wolf of Wall street (Scorsese and DiCaprio again? Hell yeah) and Pacific Rim (Giant Robots fighting giant monsters? Yes please!) :D

  5. Shane Carruth’s Upstream Color. I really want to see what’s been going through Carruth head in the 7 years since his film Primer, one of the most counfounding and fantastic films of the last decade (and it cost just 6K!) If you haven’t seen Primer, it just went on Netflix Instant and may blow your mind. Or piss you off. Both a good reactions to a film.

    • I’ve heard good things about Primer, and it is in my instant queue, but I just havent gotten around to it. Perhaps this will be the impetus. LOL

      I’ll put “Upstream Color” on my radar, too!

  6. “Oblivion” and “Sin City; a Dame to Kill For”. William Monahan writes em’, I watch em’. The original Sin City was a fave, hope #2 is worthy.

    • Yeah, I liked the original Sin City too. Have to credit it for keepin much of the sick, violent tone of the graphic novel intact. Hope they do the same with Dame to Kill For.

      Torn on Oblivion, it looks good, but there’s something there I mistrust. LOL. Dont know what it is yet. :o

    • I was impressed with the first Hunger Games even without having read the books, so I’m hoping that the second one is a worthy follow up! I’ll tell you, adding Phillip Seymour Hoffman can’t be bad! LOL.

      The last time I saw the Iron Man trailer (for the umpteenth time, LOL) I caught a whiff of “bad” off of Kingsley’s voice over. Lets just hope it was something I ate or something. LOL! :D

    • Seems as if “The Evil Dead” is a horror remake that actually has horror fans jazzed for it. Is that your sense of it too? Everyone I talk to is amped, and no one seems to be trepidatious at all…

      • The reason why you’re seeing a lot of people so excited about the new Evil Dead is because after the trailer came out, the non-believers finally realized that this is the version of the film that Campbell and Raimi simply couldn’t have made back when they shot the original. Add in the fact that the movie was shot entirely with NO cgi and you’ll see a lot of old school horror fans pretty amped to see it.

  7. I gotta go with a few. Jack the Giant Slayer, Oz the great and powerful, Oblivion, Star Trek Into Darkness, Kickass 2, Pacfic Rim, Elysium, The Next Riddick and Lastly Enders Game! These 9 will serve for now.

    • LOL. Covered your bases well enough with 9? Ok, cool. Dont hold back on my part buddy. :D

      The only one I’m not on board with is Jack the Giant Slayer. First trailers set off my “Stinker Alarm”, and after Superman Returns, I dont trust Singer. So, we’ll see on that one I guess. :(

  8. What movies does Kristen Stewart have coming out this year? That should be the real question.

    In reality I am going with two Ryan Gosling films, The Place Beyond the Pines and Only God Forgives.

  9. Well apart from Django, I would now state that I’m most anticipating The Place Beyond the Pines. When I wrote my top ten anticipated list I put that in 8th place, but it’s been growing in my mind and I’m really hopeful for it now!

      • Yeah the release date problem is largely the reason I didn’t do a best of the year post – I just seemed to be a little behind on some of the films others were mentioning :(
        Pines is so very promising; it looks like Drive and Blue Valentine merged together to a degree, and somehow arriving at an awesome looking end product!
