Update: 7 March 2014

Updated trailer for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.

As always there will be many films to hit the big screen this year, here are my top 10 films due for 2013 release, that I cant wait for.

In Expected order of release:

Iron Man 3

 

After Iron man 2 and the Avengers, I can’t wait to see my favourite Marvel super hero back, but what is expected to be quite a different side to Tony Stark. According to producer Kevin Feige, Stark is left in a state of post traumatic stress, showing a very raw and vulnerable side which contrasts to the arrogant persona we have come to know and love.

Do I think this is a good thing?

As long as it has been done well, (remembering Shane Black is in the directors chair for the third instalment) I can only see this as a positive direction which will increase the affinity we have for the characters.

Star Trek Into Darkness

 

Set for a May release, J.J Abrams is back with his second installment of the franchise. The cast is back with a very welcomed edition of Sherlocks own Benedict Cumberbatch, playing the role of Khan. Kirk leads the crew to a war-zone in attempt to capture one of its own.

Man Of Steel

 

I hold out high hopes for this film, but lets face it cant get much worse than the last steaming pile of shit Superman film.

World War Z

 

Better late than never, World War Z finally will be hitting cinemas this year after major production set backs, hopefully this wont effect the overall quality of the film.

Although I don’t rate Brad Pitt as an actor, there is something about this film that intrigues me. Oh yeah, its cause it has zombies in it. Need I say anything more?!

Kick-Ass 2

 

 

Not only that I’m a huge fan girl of all things Mark Millar, I really enjoyed the movie adaptation of the popular Kick-Ass comic. So naturally I’m going to be excited about Kick-Ass 2.

In Kick-Ass 2 we see the team take on Red Mist who has his own plans, plans for revenge.

Joining Kick-Ass and Hit-girl in their crusade to fight crime is Colonel Stars and Stripes played by Ace Ventura Jim Carrey.

Release has been pushed back by several months.

Pacific Rim

 

 

Not only does the trailer look impressive, nothing turns me on more than a good alien invasion film ;P The fact that it has the voice of GLaDOS in it, is besides the point. No, unfortunately Wheatley isn’t in the film too, but anarchist and part time Hell Boy Ron Perlman is.

The Wolverine

Anything X-Men related and it instantly goes on my to watch list. Even though The Wolverine is meant to be a sequel, it is said to be more of a reboot, since X-Men Origins: Wolverine was slammed by the critics.

For the “sequel” they have chosen to base it on the story line wrote by Frank Miller and Chris Claremont taken from 1982 comic, funnily enough, called Wolverine.

Following the original story line of the Wolverine comic, the film is set in Japan. Where Logan is taught the ways of the Samurai by the Silver Warrior played by Will Yun Lee. There also is a love interest for Logan, but that’s enough of the mushy crap.

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For

 

Directed by Robert Rodriguez And Frank Miller, taken from the graphic novel by Frank Miller.

There is very little info around, about what we can expect from the sequel. A few roles have been re-cast, including the role of Miho which will now be played by Jamie Chung.

None the less based on the fact I loved the first film and adore the graphic novels, this is going on the list.

You can expect to see a release of October the 4th this year.

Thor: The Dark World

Thor-The-Dark-World

I loved Thor, thought it worked great on screen and was really pleasantly surprised by how well Chris Hemsworth played the role of Thor not to mention it had Natalie Portman in it.

So surely the second film has to be good right? Well, if all else fails I get a couple of hours guilt free perv time.

This time Thor takes on a load of Dark Elves who’s leader is a little bit more than pissed off, wanting to plummet the earth back into darkness.

The film is set after the events of The Avengers film, so that’s something to bear in mind. If you have been living in a desolate place with no sign of life… or Hull and haven’t yet watched The Avengers, you might want to do so before seeing this.

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

 I cannot wait for the second instalment to the (controversial) trilogy of the Hobbit.

Sharing the screen again, although it being the big screen, Martin Freeman and Benedict Cumberbatch. Something tells me they will not be working together, quite the opposite as Cumberbatch takes on his second villain role this year as the Necromancer.

So if necromancy, fighting gold hoarding dragons is you’re thing and that you actually have good taste in films, you will be sure to watch this.

It will also be very interesting to see if the films could have really been done in two parts. Maybe Peter Jackson did indeed have too much good footage to disregard or is he like Smaug and just after the gold.
