Top 10 Most Anticipated Films of 2013
All right, now, not to be confused with last week’s “Top 10 Films of 2013 Predicted.” This week’s Top 10 will consist of the 10 most wanted films set for release in 2013. Judged by budget, publicity, and overall excitement stemming from the general public, this Top 10 will feature, in a general sense, crowd pleasers. Without any further ado, let’s begin.
Honourable Mentions: Anchorman 2, Monsters University, The Wolverine, Elysium, Sin City 2, Kick Ass 2, Evil Dead.
10: Thor: The Dark World. The hotly anticipated follow up to 2011’s smash hit Thor. This soon to be blockbuster stars Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Idris Elba, Tom Hiddleston, and Anthony Hopkins.
9: The Great Gatsby. From visionary director Baz Luhrmann and starring a plethora of stars such as Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan. and Jason Clarke. The Great Gatsby seems primed for stardom.
8: The Green Inferno, V/H/S 2, and The Conjuring. This is for all of you who need your horror fix, a lot like us. Coming from modern horror master such as James Wan, Eli Roth, and Adam Wingard. This trio of frightening delights is sure to leave your pants wet and in need of a wash.
The Conjuring Trailer:
V/H/S 2 Trailer:
The Green Inferno: First official picture.
7: This is the End and The World’s End. Here to get you prepared for the apocalypse are these two doomsday comedies. Brought to you by the guys behind Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz. The World’s End reunites Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, and Edgar Wright. Also starring Martin Freeman, The World’s End looks like to become another cult favourite. As for This is the End, starring a multitude of comedies best such as Seth Rogen, James Franco, and Jonah Hill. This hilarious heavyweight film should be interesting to say the least.
This is the End: Red Band Trailer.
The World’s End:
6: World War Z. Brad Pitt, Zombies, and based off of Max Brooks highly addicting novel, need I say more?
5: Iron Man 3. The Third entry into the Iron Man trilogy. It features an army of iron men and Ben Kingsley as a villain. Your argument is invalid.
4: Pacific Rim. Directed by Guillermo Del Toro and starring Idris Elba. This monster vs man picture features the use of gigantic robots controlled by humans battling humongous aliens, I’m sold.
3: Man of Steel. Produced by Christopher Nolan and starring Michael Shannon as General Zod. Man of Steel is the highly anticipated reboot of the Superman franchise.
2: The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. The follow up to An Unexpected Journey. Peter Jackson’s The Desolation of Smaug should be a much improved film and appease those disappointed by the first.
1: Star Trek Into Darkness. I have nothing to say, I am beyond words with anticipation. Just enjoy the trailer.

Into Darkness was my #1 too, great list. Definitely a lot to look forward to this year!
I don’t see how any other film can be #1 lol. Really looking forward to this year, lots of great films from great people in the business.
Star Trek Into Darkness is a good choice, in the next two weeks :D
I know, I can’t wait! I’m really happy that now were getting into blockbuster season, been really slow since January.
Just saw Iron Man and was really good but not the best, can’t wait for the others coming out though, so many gambles so much reputation and money at stake :D
I know, looks to be an exhilarating year! I live in Canada so Iron Man doesn’t come out till next week, oh well :).
Beat you to it :D
Hope you like it and I think you’re right, good year :D
Indeed, but I will beat you one day Tim, one day :)
One day, but not today :D
I’m not getting my hopes up for Great Gatsby, these adaptations tend to fall flat on the silver screen.
As for The World’s End and Pacific Rim, I really can’t wait! As an EOW fan, it’s relly hard not to expect something as excellent as Shaun of the Dead.
Very informative list, thanks for posting, M.
Thanks so much! I’m really looking forward to Pacific Rim. I can’t see how Del Toro can disappoint me. Even if it is horrible I will probably still love it lol. I’m on the fence about Gatsby, but people seem generally excited to see it. I, however, am cautiously optimistic. The Worlds End looks like another hit from Wright and company, especially since the addition of Martin Freeman. Thanks again! Stop by anytime :).
Some nice picks here!
Thanks a bunch!
I love that The Green Inferno is on this list. Hopefully it’s a return to form for Eli Roth and if it’s just half as disturbing as its inspiration (Cannibal Holocaust) It’ll be a huge win for me!
I’m really looking forward to The Green Inferno as well. Good on Roth to go with his gut on this one and use CH as his inspiration, it’s a terrific horror film. Glad you liked the list!
