COUNTDOWN | 44 Movies To Look Forward To In 2013

Here are 10 movies I’m looking forward to the most:

15. ENDER’S GAME

October 25th

I don’t know a lot about this property but, like The Hunger Games, it’s hard to ignore when so many people love the material it’s based upon.

14. THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE

November 20th

I wasn’t a giant fan of the original but I’m curious about the sequel regardless.

13. PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 5

October 25th

I’ve written a lot about the entire Paranormal Activity franchise.  The fourth installment was the first I didn’t enjoy at all.  Let’s hope the 5th doesn’t rely on the same scares and actually advances the mythology.

REVIEW | Paranormal Activity 4

12. KICK ASS 2

August 16th

The first film was over the top but it had it’s moments.  We’ll see how Jim Carrey’s recent decision affects the film leading up to it’s release.

11. INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS

November/December

It’s hard not to get excited for another movie from the incredibly talented Coen Brothers.

10. THE MONUMENTS MEN

December 13th

Matt Damon, George Clooney, John Goodman, Bill Murray, Jean Dujardin and more…  The cast alone is worth a top 10 mention.

9. THE WOLVERINE

July 26th

I seriously hated X-Men Origins: Wolverine but this movie has a very good chance of erasing that movie’s existence from my mind.

8. PRISONERS

September 20th

A fantastic looking drama with an impressive cast.

7. THE WOLF OF WALL STREET

November 15th

Martin Scorsese reunites with long time collaborator Leonardo DiCaprio in what looks like one of the best films of 2013.

6. THE HOBBIT: THE DESOLATION OF SMAUG

December 13

I can’t wait to go back to Middle Earth!

August 9th

An impressive looking following up to District 9 by director Neill Blomkamp

One of my most anticipated movies of the year.  I can’t wait to see this.
