Last Friday on the Top 5, we looked back at 2012 in film; today (belated though it is) we look onwards to 2013 and my five most anticipated films of the year. Rarely does my MOST ANTICIPATED FILM end up being my favorite. Last year, I was pretty sure it was going to be Dark Knight Rises or The Hobbit and I was happily proved right. But what about 2013? What looms on the horizon?
1. The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug
2. Star Trek: Into Darkness
4. Man of Steel
5. Ender’s Game
This is not to say that I’m not looking forward to others (World War Z, Oblivion, Iron Man 3, A Captain’s Duty, Catching Fire, Monsters University, etc.) but these are the films that stand over the firmament. Will one be my 2013 Film of the Year? Time shall tell. What are you looking forward to this year?
