The 30 Most Anticipated Movies of 2013

We publish what we consider to be the “30 Most Anticipated Movies of [the upcoming year]” annually. Some of these are titles you’re already familiar with, some of them you’ll disagree with, most of which we’re going to see regardless.

What makes a movie “anticipated” in our eyes? Good question. It can be as something as simple as having a big-name director attached to a film. Alternatively, it could be the audience’s curiosity as to how badly Hollywood will drop the ball on a good idea (World War Z *cough cough*). If we’re being honest here, one movie even landed on this list because of a certain actor’s hair. No, I’m not talking about Ron Burgundy.

What I’m trying to say is that there’s not one thing that can make audiences excited for a flick–they either are or they aren’t. Find out why you should be excited for these 30 movies below.

    Are you f**king kidding me?!?! Before Moonrise!??? Worst movie franchise EVER!!!

    1. James - University of Texas says:

      Not the worst, but definitely top 5

  2. Jean says:

    GI Joe Retaliation not included?

    1. nycbass says:

      Not exactly. We included it on "Dishonorable Mentions" at the bottom.

  3. Malaguy says:

    Not a terrible list, but the list by WhatCulture is better I think. Only 15 movies, so its a little more selective. Plus, how could you overlook "Oblivion"? Link to WC:

  4. D Sharp says:

    Where is Goldberg's The End of the World?! It is going to be FANTASTIC!

  5. Bob says:

    where's "Zoolander 2"?!

    Kinda spoiled The Hobbit 2

    1. mike says:

      How is it spoiled? The book spoiled everything ages ago if you didn't know the dragon died

  9. Jason says:

    As a side note for the reading Enders Game suggestion, from what I have heard/read, the movie will be a mix of Enders Game and Enders Shadow. So I would offer that people should read both novels, which is great because both are fantastic.

  10. steel says:

    why is it that the villain in the thor poster looks like mel gibson in braveheart?

  11. dumblistisdumb says:

  12. Demetric says:
