Default Top 50 films to look out for: 2013

http://www.nextmovie.com/blog/2013-movies/

It's an interesting list things that stood out for me I will post.

45. 'Prisoners'

Release Date: September 20

Starring: Hugh Jackman, Jake Gyllenhaal, Paul Dano

The Scoop: Hugh Jackman has set himself up for quite a year, first with the superhero blockbuster "The Wolverine" (more on that later down our list) and then this collaboration with director Denis Villeneuve, who previously wowed critics with his Oscar-nominated film "Incendies." Here Jackman plays a working class Boston dad whose daughter is kidnapped; when the authorities can't find her, Jackman takes on the task herself, targeting the man who he believes abducted her. But does he have the right guy? If you were wondering what "Taken" might have looked like if it had been done as a serious indie drama instead of a bullet-slinging action fest, "Prisoners' will provide the answer.

39. 'Frozen'

Release Date: November 27

Starring: Kristen Bell, Josh Gad, India Menzel

The Scoop: Disney has been on a bit of a roll recently with their animated classics (see: "Wreck-It Ralph" and "Tangled") and that streak looks to continue with next Thanksgiving's "Frozen.' Based loosely on the timeless Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale "The Snow Queen," "Frozen" features voicework by Kristen Bell as Anna, a girl who is cursed by her sinister sister, The Snow Queen. Teaming up with an adventurous mountain man named Kristoff (Jonathan Groff), Anna sets out on a quest to save herself and, most likely, the world. So that's where global warming came from!

38. 'The World's End'

Release Date: October 25

Starring: Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Martin Freeman

The Scoop: Apocalyptic epics are all the rage these days, so who better to take the stuffing out of the genre than the comedic dream team of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost? Joined by Bilbo Baggins himself, Martin Freeman, "The World's End" tells the tale of a gorup of blokes who set out on their annual bar crawl only to discover that they also hold the fate of humanity in their hands. Man, we hate it when that happens.

35. 'Monuments Men'


Release Date: December 20

Starring: Daniel Craig, Matt Damon, Cate Blanchett
The Scoop: George Clooney has directed some pretty impressive films in his career ("Good Night & Good Luck," "The Ides of March"), but "Monuments Men" may be his most interesting and ambitious project yet. Daniel Craig and Matt Damon star in the true (ish) story of a hand-picked group of specialists during World War II who were tasked with a secret and vital mission: Saving the world's art treasures from the Nazis. You'll note that this is being released just before Christmas, meaning Clooney and company are probably already starting to clear space on their mantles for all the awards they are expecting to win.

33. 'Saving Mr. Banks'

Release Date: December 20

Starring: Emma Thompson, Tom Hanks, Colin Farrell
The Scoop: Now, who doesn't just absolutely love "Mary Poppins"? That's a rhetorical question, of course, since everyone alive quite rightly adores the 1964 Disney classic starring Dick Van Dyke and Julie Andrews. In fact, there's only one thing most movie fans love more and that's Tom Hanks, which is why "Saving Mr. Banks" is such a treat. Hanks, you see, plays Walt Disney himself in this true story of how Uncle Walt tussled with "Mary Poppins" author P.L. Travers (the always amazing Emma Thompson) over the rights to the movie version. We won't even need a spoonful of sugar with this one, it sounds like a treat enough already.

22. 'Side Effects'


Release Date: February 8

Starring: Rooney Mara, Channing Tatum, Jude Law
The Scoop: In case you haven't heard the devastating news, Channing Tatum recently revealed that he is considering taking a break from acting in 2013. Luckily for us, though, he's already finished filming "Side Effects," meaning this new Stephen Soderbergh psychological thriller may be the last chance we have to see him for a while. Considering this one also features the always awesome Jude Law as a doctor who prescribes a dangerous new medication to 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo's" Rooney Mara, we have a feeling that if Channing does go on hiatus, at least he'll be going out on a high note.

19. 'Captain Phillips'

Release Date: October 11

Starring: Tom Hanks, Catherine Keener, Max Martini
The Scoop: No, "Captain Phillips" isn't about a superhero with an extremely banal code name. But it is about a real life hero. Tom Hanks stars as Captain Richard Phillips, who in 2009 was commanding the merchant vessel Maersk Alabama when it was hijacked by pirates. Phillips was taken prisoner and held for ransom for several days before being rescued by Navy SEALs in a daring attack. Oscar nominee Catherine Keener plays his wife, Andrea Phillips, while "United 93" and "The Bourne Ultimatum" director Paul Greengrass is behind the camera. Should be a real corker.

17. 'Kick-Ass 2'

Release Date: June 28
Starring: Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Chloe Grace Moretz, Christopher Mintz-Plasse
The Scoop: A lot of people thought that 2010's "Kick-Ass" kicked ass, so it's only natural that those people are also expecting "Kick-Ass 2" to kick ass too. And frankly, we see no reason to doubt it, as all the key players including Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Kick-Ass, Chloe Grace Moretz as Hit Girl and Christopher Mintz-Plasse as Red Mist are back for another round of "realistic" superhero adventure. Just make sure you keep an eye on your backside, because someone's ass is going to be kicked and if you're not careful, it could be yours.


13. 'Warm Bodies'


Release Date: February 1

Starring: Nicholas Hoult, Teresa Palmer, John Malkovich
The Scoop: Based on the popular novel by Isaac Marion, "Warm Bodies" take the zombie movie in a new, unexpected direction: Romance. Nicholas Hoult plays your typical mindless zombie. Or, he's typical and mindless right up intil he meets the still-living Teresa Palmer, whom he naturally falls in love with. Of course, their romance is strained by the fact that a) he's undead and b) he ate her boyfriend. But love conquers all, and in 2013, it's poised to conquer the box office as well. Because braaaaains are nice, but heart is even better.

8. 'Ender's Game'

Release Date: November 1
Starring: Asa Butterfield, Hailee Steinfeld, Abigail Breslin, Harrison Ford
The Scoop: One of the most popular and acclaimed science fiction novels of all time, Orson Scott Card's "Ender's Game" finally gets the big screen treatment it deserves in this adaptation by "Tsotsi" and "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" director Gavin Hood. Asa Butterfield, the breakout star of last year's critically beloved film "Hugo," is joined by Oscar nominees Abigail Breslin and Hailee Steinfeld in a story about children being trained as Earth's last line of defense against an imminent alien attack. And with Harrison Ford on board as the guy doing the training, well, let's just say we think Earth is in pretty good hands.

7. 'Oldboy'


Release Date: October 11
Starring: Josh Brolin, Elizabeth Olsen, Samuel L. Jackson
The Scoop: Usually we're not all that excited to see yet another remake; after all, if the film was good enough to deserve a remake, we're happy just watching the original, thanks very much. There's one major difference between this remake and most, though: It's being remade by one of the most dynamic, acclaimed and controversial directors of all time, Spike Lee. And the film he's remaking is the shockingly intense Korean horror thriller "Oldboy," which became an instant cult classic when it was released in 2003. With a cast that includes Josh Brolin and Elizabeth Olsen, we can't wait to see what Lee comes up with.

-------------------------------------------------------------

Decent list But a lot of the top 10 I disagree with... I mean #1 and #2 is "Pacific Rim" and "Iron Man 3"

Come on......

Superman and Star Trek I give em that. What do you guys think?

All that means is it won't be Twilight. Which is funny since it probably will be.

Not many liked Percy Jackson but its a vast improvement to Clash Of The Titans for atleast it was fun. The sequel could be allot better as well.

24 Machete Kills.


My only real interest in this is the fact Gibson is suppose to play a villain and Its something Expendables should have considered Gibson for back with 1.
