Hey guys! Editor Nicki here letting you know just what movies I’m looking forward to in 2013.
A zombie romance! And to think I thought the zombie trend had all been done. Yep, Warm Bodies is my first movie recomendation for the year.
Opens 1st February 2013
Iron Man 3
I’ll admit, I’m a little weary of Iron Man 3. But it does have Kiss Kiss Bang Bang director and Predator alum Shane Black at the helm, and I do so love Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark. Oh yes, and it looks like we’ll be seeing Ben Kingsley as The Mandarin!
Opens 3rd May 2013
I don’t know about you guys but I loved Kick-Ass. I’m so glad there’s a sequel, and that Chloe Moretz returns as Hit-Girl who now finds herself struggling in high school. Meanwhile, Red Mist is ready to exact some revenge.
Opens 28th June 2013
A movie about giant robots piloted by humans fighting off aliens? If this were a Michael Bay film I wouldn’t give it a second thought. But this isn’t directed by just any director. This is Guillermo Del Toro, and even if it does turn out to be a B-movie in blockbuster disguise, it’ll still be interesting to watch.
Opens 12th July 2013
I loved District 9, so I can’t wait to see what Neil Blomkamp has in store for us in the this movie about a grim future in which the richest people live on a space station while everyone else resides on a ruined Earth, and one man who wants to level the playing field.
Opens 9th August 2013
Okay, so you might remember that I was anticipating watching this movie in 2012, but apparently it was pushed back. Still, I’m very eager to see Alfonso Cuaron’s first scifi outing since Children of Men. Sandra Bullock and George Clooney star as astronauts struggling to survive after debris crashes into their orbiting space station.
Opens 18th October 2013
The World’s End
The final movie in the Blood and Ice-Cream trilogy is finally here. If you loved Hot Fuzz and Shaun of the Dead, you’ll love this film about a group of friends reuniting in a pub one last time before the apocalypse. Any chance we can get a Jessica Hynes appearance and make it a real Spaced reunion?
Opens 25th October 2013
Years in the making, 2013 is the year we finally get a movie adaptation of Orson Scott Card’s novel about child geniuses sent to Battle School to prepare for a war against an insectoid race that could wipe out the human race. Asa Butterfield plays the lead role of Ender with Harrison Ford as Colonel Graff.
Opens 1st November 2013
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
The second novel of the fabulous Hunger Games series sees Katniss Everdeen back in the arena again, for a very special Hunger Games. Personally, I’m a huge fan of the series, and this movie as well as the next ones will prove to all naysayers that the Hunger Games is more than just a Battle Royale rip off.
Opens 22nd November 2013
The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug
It’s December 2013, which surely means another Tolkien film. I don’t know about you guys but I thoroughly enjoyed the first Hobbit movie, and I cannot wait to see Smaug!
