  • Out of that list, I’m pretty evenly hyped for Pacific Rim and Iron Man 3. Both featuring amazing creative teams working on geek-friendly material – plenty of other such releases on the list, but these two I have the most faith in. On a side note, imagine showing a mid-1990s geek this release list (with appropriate explanation) and watching their head explode :-) We do live in blessed times…

    But really, the dark horse is Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2. Because if they can capture what made the first one special, it will rule above all.

  • RogerBW

    I’m being cautious – if I don’t expect much, I’m more likely to get a pleasant surprise. There are some films I’m interested in:

    World War Z (the trailer made it look pretty bad, but I enjoyed the book)
    Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters (could be cheesy fun)
    The World’s End (I’ve been waiting for these guys to get back together)

    and some I will be sure to avoid (Hangover 3, GI Joe, The Host, the Oldboy remake because I’ve seen the original). But most of them get a big meh for now.

    Jack Ryan was partly filmed at my place of work, so I’ll be interested to see if I can spot the relevant shots.

  • MisterAntrobus

    I’m looking forward to the Blu-Ray release of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey so I can skip over all the ponderous filler material and see if there’s a good movie in there. I’m sure there must be.

  • John Dies at the End and the next Hobbit movie are the two I’m super pumped for. 

    Monsters University, Iron Man 3, and Star Trek into Darkness all sound like they’ll be good. 

    I’d only heard about Ender’s game and The World’s End from this list, and now I’m looking forward to them both. :)

    I’ve pretty much given up hope for World War Z.

  • JT

    Star Trek and Gatsby for sure.  I can’t bear to get my hopes up for Ender’s Game yet.  

  • Damian Barajas

    The worlds End! That’s ONE movie I definitely plan to see this year!
    Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2? Wow! whats a good word for excited expectation with a streak of dread?
    I think I’ve become physically incapable of being excited by any sequel at this point. :(

  • They are remaking a lot of films that should never be remade this year, aren’t they?

  • KEAplin

    Wow… that’s a tough one. I’m looking forward to more movies in 2013, than I have looked forward to in a LONG time, but if I’m limited to one… it’s gotta be Star Trek Into Darkness – all the goodies from Star Trek plus Benedict Cumberbatch as the bad guy? Wow.

  • RogerBW

    The really remarkable thing is that only slightly over half of those, by my reckoning, are sequels or remakes.

  • Joker98

    Man Of Steel,Oz:The Great  and Powerful,Oblivion.

  • Joker98

     Like what? O.O

  • I wasn’t even aware of a lot of these.
    At this point, not much has me excited. Not even the big Comic book sequels. I’ve trained myself over the years to not set myself up for disappointment. The real excitement comes when a movie I am somewhat interested in gets numerous positive reviews. I truly base my movie going on reviews from people I trust. It’s a rare day when I see a movie that was poorly reviewed. At home I am more lenient.
    I suppose the ones I anticipate seeing the most are:
    Thor 2
    Hobbit 2
    Plus the many small or unknown movies that will probably be better than most on this list

  • I posted a comment before, but it seems to have disappeared. Hmm.

    Anyway, I’m looking forward to quite a few of these. I’m most curious to see Epic, about which I know nothing except the very intriguing trailer I saw in the theater. And I’m curious about Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters too, because I like Logan Lerman and I wonder how the filmmakers will repair the storyline (if they even attempt it) that they so thoroughly messed up in the first film.

    I hope Ender’s Game is good. And I’m eager to see what Game of Thrones director Alan Taylor brings to Thor: The Dark World.

  • althea

    If I hadn’t seen the trailers before The Hobbit last Saturday I wouldn’t have had an opinion, but by George M. Cohan, I’m just feverish in anticipation of Oz the Great and Powerful. Holy Moses, does that look fabulous! Definitely a don’t-wait-for- the-DVD. Unless MaryAnn says otherwise, I guess.

    There were some others, I forget, but it was surprising – on account of I’m not fond of Tom Cruise – that Jack Ryan looked good, and Pacific Rim, mind-blowing.

  • As they’re two fandoms I love, and both had a stellar first movie, am most excited about “Star Trek: Into Darkness” and “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire”. Can. Not. Wait. =D

  • Jim Mann

    The next Hobbit film and Oz, as well as Thor 2 and <Iron Man 3.   

  • Pacific Rim, The Hobbit.
    Also, I know this makes me a bad homo, but Ender’s Game as well.

    I usually love Star Trek but I am dreading the movie. Why? Three words.
    Benedict Cumberbatch. Tumblr.

  • Aix

    You can just block his name or his character’s name via Tumblr savior. That’s what I do for characters and actors I am not really fond of.

  • ross lad

    Man of Steel, OZ, Star Trek

  • Ide Cyan

    Stoker, directed by Park Chan-Wook & written by Wentworth Miller, starring Mia Wasikowska, Matthew Goode and Nicole Kidman. It looks utterly gorgeous and stylishly creepy.

    I’m also looking forward to a bunch of sequels , and I might end up seeing Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters despite its looking terrible.

  • Ola-la..maybe Oz: The Great and Powerful or Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters 

  • Imran

    Man of steel, world war z, after earth (will smith ftw).

  • Tonio Kruger

    Machete Kills.

  • Tonio Kruger

    Oops! I mean Machete Kills, of course.
