Screen Rant’s 25 Most Anticipated Movies of 2013

Published 2 years ago by , Updated January 4th, 2013 at 10:28 am, This is a list post.

Most Anticipated Movies of 2013With the first weekend of 2013 about to throw moviegoers into a new year of film releases, it's time for us to share what the Screen Rant team is looking forward to covering and watching on the big screen over the next 12 months. From a few long-awaited sequels to a plethora of comic book films, 2013 aims to improve over last summer's low box office attendance numbers.Beginning with a list of over 70 films, we've narrowed down our top 25 most anticipated films of 2013.

The Seventh Son

Most Anticipated Movies 2013 - Seventh SonRelease Date: October 18, 2013 Cast: Julianne Moore, Ben Barnes, Jeff Bridges, Kit Harington, Olivia Williams, Djimon HounsouSupernatural tales may be all the rage in Hollywood these days but it would be a mistake to dismiss The Seventh Son as just another teen fantasy story. A sordid story of witches and ghouls, starring Barnes and Bridges as a pair of warriors out to hunt creatures of the night, the film should provide plenty of exciting visuals and captivating character drama - especially with villainous performances from Julianne Moore and Djimon Hounsou. Bonus points for an appearance by Game of Thrones alumni Kit Harington!


Most Anticipated Movies 2013 - OblivionRelease Date: April 19, 2013 Cast: Tom Cruise, Morgan Freeman, Olga Kurylenko, Zoe Bell, Nikolaj Coster-WaldauBased on the graphic novel of the same name, Joseph Kosinski (TRON: Legacy) brings his visual eye and sci-fi chops to direct Tom Cruise in the sci-fi thriller Oblivion. The world has seemingly been emptied of humanity and while repairing drones, Jack Harper (Cruise) discovers a crashed spaceship with a human survivor that begins to unravel the mystery. We enjoyed Jack Reacher and look forward to meeting Jack Harper.

Pain & Gain

Most Anticipated Movies 2013 - Pain and GainRelease Date: April 26, 2013 Cast: Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne Johnson, Anthony Mackie, Ed Harris, Rebel Wilson, Ken Jeong, Tony ShalhoubBefore returning to the Transformers franchise once again, director Michael Bay is finally taking a break from large scale firefights and explosions to craft this "small" passion project based on a true story about bodybuilders who botch their kidnapping and extortion plans. The lovable trio of The Rock, Marky Mark and Anthony Mackie have us excited for the action and comedy in Pain & Gain.

Monsters University

Most Anticipated Movies 2013 - Monsters UniversityRelease Date: June 21, 2013 Cast: Billy Crystal, Frank Oz, Jennifer Tilly, John Goodman, Kelsey Grammer, Steve BuscemiIt's hard to go wrong with any film by Pixar (ignoring Cars), and we couldn't be more excited about John Goodman and Billy Crystal returning to voice the leads for the prequel to Monsters Inc., a film we've been waiting over a decade for, one that follows young Mike and Sulley attending the University of Fear and beginning their relationship.


Most Anticipated Movies 2013 - RiddickRelease Date: September 6, 2013 Cast: Vin Diesel, Katee Sackhoff, Karl Urban, Dave Bautista, Bokeem WoodbineThe unique sci-fi thriller Pitch Black helped launch Vin Diesel's career and earned a big budget sequel in the under-performing Chronicles of Riddick. Years later, writer-director David Twohy and Diesel return to bring the last Furyan to the big screen in a more intimate (and hard R) return to form, in a tale of betrayal and revenge, loaded with darkness, bounty hunters and alien monsters.

The World's End

Most Anticipated Movies 2013 - The World's EndRelease Date: October 25, 2013 Cast: Martin Freeman, Nick Frost, Rosamund Pike, Simon Pegg, Paddy ConsidineNorth American viewers will have to wait a few extra months to see the third installment of the "Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy", the other two being Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, but it's worth the wait to see Edgar Wright team with Pegg and Frost yet again. This particular comedy, about a pub crawl turned save-the-planet situation, riffs on the tropes and archetypes of your standard apocalyptic blockbusters.


Most Anticipated Movies 2013 - OldBoyRelease Date: October 11, 2013 Cast: Josh Brolin, Elizabeth Olsen, Sharlto Copley, Lance Reddick, Samuel L. JacksonThe American remake of Oldboy has garnered quite a bit of controversy, and has a tough task ahead at topping Park Chan-wook's original Korean version, not to mention its infamous unedited corridor fight sequence. With Spike Lee directing and talent including Josh Brolin, Sharlto Copley, and Elizabeth Olsen involved, it's difficult to not look forward to their adaptation.

Pacific Rim

Most Anticipated Movies 2013 - Pacific RimRelease Date: July 12, 2013 Cast: Charlie Day, Charlie Hunnam, Clifton Collins Jr., Idris Elba, Rinko Kikuchi, Ron PerlmanA passion project for visionary director Guillermo del Toro, Pacific Rim pits giant robots vs. giant monsters. We aren't excited about the tacked-on 3D but the footage we've seen thus far - and the film's cast of TV faves - gives it a lot of potential to launch a new franchise.

A Good Day to Die Hard

Most Anticipated Movies 2013 - Die Hard 5Release Date: February 14, 2013 Cast: Bruce Willis, Cole Hauser, Jai Courtney, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Patrick StewartJai Courtney was a scene-stealer in Jack Reacher and proved that he could play the son of Bruce Willis' John McClane in the fifth Die Hard. In A Good Day to Die Hard, the pair get caught up with the CIA's plans to seize nuclear weapons. No big deal for the McClane family.

Zero Dark Thirty

Most Anticipated Movies 2013 - Zero Dark ThirtyRelease Date: January 11, 2013 Cast: Jessica Chastain, Jason Clarke, Joel Edgerton, Chris Pratt, Kyle Chandler, Mark StrongKathryn Bigelow dominated the awards circuit with 2008's The Hurt Locker and aims to do the same with Zero Dark Thirty, a film that tells the tale of the hunt for Osama bin Laden. It released in select theaters for press to critical acclaim in time for the awards season but doesn't release wide until early January.

Anchorman: The Legend Continues

Most Anticipated Movies 2013 - Anchorman 2Release Date: December 20, 2013 Cast: Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd, Steve Carell, David Koechner, Christina ApplegateThe fans wanted, the cast wanted it, and it's finally happening. The legend of news anchor Ron Burgundy (Ferrell) continues with the long-awaited sequel to Anchorman in December, bringing back the entire cast along with plenty of cameos, as they deal with more issues of equality in the workplace. Expect a few musical numbers too!

Kick-Ass 2

Most Anticipated Movies 2013 - Kick-Ass 2Release Date: June 28, 2013 Cast: Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Chloë Grace Moretz, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Jim Carrey, John LeguizamoMatthew Vaughn beat the studio system when he made Kick-Ass on his own and that film earned comic creator Mark Millar an R-rated sequel, this one directed by Jeff Wadlow. Smart casting additions, including Jim Carrey, and a much larger roster of costumed "heroes" and "villains" have us excited for the gruesome and raunchy return of Kick-Ass and Hit-Girl.

Evil Dead

Most Anticipated Movies 2013 - Evil DeadRelease Date: April 12, 2013 Cast: Jane Levy, Shiloh Fernandez, Jessica Lucas, Lou Taylor Pucci, Elizabeth BlackmoreBy default, the Evil Dead remake is facing the toughest of skepticism, but with Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell involved, our interest was piqued. When we saw the footage at New York Comic-Con (and the audience reaction), we were sold and this remake may actually live up to the poster tagline "the most terrifying film you will ever experience."


Most Anticipated Movies 2013 - RED 2Release Date: August 02, 2013 Cast: Anthony Hopkins, Bruce Willis, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Helen Mirren, John Malkovich, Mary-Louise ParkerFrank Moses (Willis) and his team of Retired Extremely Dangerous ex-CIA operatives gave us one of our favorite movies of 2010. After fighting to clear their names, they're back and this time, they're going international with new veteran cast additions Anthony Hopkins and Catherine Zeta-Jones.

The Fast and the Furious 6

Most Anticipated Movies 2013 - Fast and Furious 6Release Date: May 24, 2013 Cast: Dwayne Johnson, Gina Carano, Jordana Brewster, Luke Evans, Michelle Rodriguez, Paul Walker, Tyrese Gibson, Vin DieselAfter Tokyo Drift, Justin Lin managed to turn Fast & Furious into one of the most successful film franchises. An even bigger cast surrounds Dominic Toretto (Diesel) & Brian O'Conner's (Walker) growing crew for the sixth installment which sees the mysterious return of Letty (Michelle Rodriguez) and the introduction of a new villain played by Luke Evans. Diesel vs. The Rock rematch?

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For

Most Anticipated Movies 2013 - Sin City 2Release Date: October 4, 2013 Cast: Clive Owen, Jamie Chung, Jessica Alba, Mickey Rourke, Michael Madsen, Rosario DawsonYears of waiting will pay off in 2013 as Robert Rodriguez assembles new and familiar faces for the long-awaited Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. And yes, Mickey Rourke is back as Marv. We expect a similar faithful translation from Rodriguez and the ensemble.

Gangster Squad

Most Anticipated Movies 2013 - Gangster SquadRelease Date: January 11, 2013 Cast: Anthony Mackie, Emma Stone, Giovanni Ribisi, Josh Brolin, Michael Peña, Nick Nolte, Robert Patrick, Ryan Gosling, Sean PennOriginally slated for September of 2012 as one of our most anticipated films of last year, Warner Bros. delayed the film in response to the tragic Colorado theater shooting, cutting the sequence involving a theater shootout and filming other scenes to replace. The high caliber cast and incredible trailers should make Gangster Squad an awards season contender for 2013 even with its unfortunate January release date.


Most Anticipated Movies 2013 - ElysiumRelease Date: August 9, 2013 Cast: Jodie Foster, Matt Damon, Michael Shanks, Sharlto Copley, William FichtnerAfter the Halo film project was canned, Neill Blomkamp adapted one of his shorts into the successful District 9. His next project, Elysium, starring Matt Damon, promises to make those behind Halo's demise regret their decisions even more.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

Most Anticipated Movies 2013 - Catching FireRelease Date: November 22, 2013 Cast: Amanda Plummer, Donald Sutherland, Elizabeth Banks, Jeffrey Wright, Jena Malone, Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Lenny Kravitz, Liam Hemsworth, Lynn Cohen, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Sam Claflin, Stanley Tucci, Woody HarrelsonGoodbye Twilight, hello Hunger Games. Gary Ross' first installment successfully launched a new franchise based on Suzanne Collins' popular trilogy of novels and Francis Lawrence's sequel promises more action, more excitement, and more elaborate set pieces, as Katniss and Peeta are forced to compete once again, for each other and for District 12.

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

Most Anticipated Movies 2013 - Hobbit Desolation SmaugRelease Date: December 13, 2013 Cast: Martin Freeman, Ian McKellen, Richard Armitage, Benedict CumberbatchNow that moviegoers have been introduced to Peter Jackson's 3D 48fps version of Middle-earth and met young Bilbo and his 13 Dwarven companions, it's time to finally meet the mighty dragon in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. We expect many of the criticisms of An Unexpected Journey to be washed away with part two of the trilogy.

The Wolverine

Most Anticipated Movies 2013 - The WolverineRelease Date: July 26, 2013 Cast: Brian Tee, Hugh Jackman, Will Yun Lee, Svetlana Khodchenkova, Hiroyuki Sanada, Rila Fukushima, Tao OkamotoAfter X-Men: The Last Stand and X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Fox and producer Lauren Shuler Donner took steps to ensure their future X-films don't suffer the same issues and we saw the beginning of a turnaround with X-Men: First Class. With Hugh Jackman in the best shape of his life and given the chance to tell his favorite Logan story from Marvel Comics, James Mangold's The Wolverine - based on a script by Christopher McQuarrie - may just be the Wolverine movie we've been waiting over a decade for.

Iron Man 3

Most Anticipated Movies 2013 - Iron Man 3Release Date: May 3, 2013 Cast: Ben Kingsley, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jon Favreau, Paul Bettany, Robert Downey Jr.Anyone familiar with Kiss Kiss Bang Bang understands why the re-partnering of Shane Black and Robert Downey Jr. is something to get excited for, especially for the first chapter of Phase Two of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Iron Man 3 promises to serve as a character-focused standalone feature, that will bring Tony Stark "back to the cave," so to speak.

Man of Steel

Most Anticipated Movies 2013 - Superman Man of SteelRelease Date: June 14, 2013 Cast: Amy Adams, Diane Lane, Henry Cavill, Kevin Costner, Michael Shannon, Russell CroweThe return of the Superman franchise takes the form of a new origin story in Man of Steel, representing the potential first step in a larger, interconnected universe by DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. With proven action director and comic book enthusiast Zack Snyder at the helm, we can't wait to see a more badass Clark Kent on the big screen again. We hope it'll help us forget Green Lantern.

Thor: The Dark World

Most Anticipated Movies 2013 - Thor 2 The Dark WorldRelease Date: November 8, 2013 Cast: Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Anthony Hopkins, Chris Hemsworth, Christopher Eccleston, Idris Elba, Jaimie Alexander, Kat Dennings, Natalie Portman, Ray Stevenson, Rene Russo, Stellan Skarsgard, Tadanobu Asano, Tom Hiddleston, Zachary LeviWith Alan Taylor (Game of Thrones) helming the Thor sequel and all talent involved boasting about the change in style and tone, Thor: The Dark World promises to be bigger, dirtier and more real, taking fans deeper into the nine realms and the cosmic side of the Marvel universe.

Star Trek Into Darkness

Release Date: May 17, 2013 Cast: Anton Yelchin, Benedict Cumberbatch, Chris Pine, John Cho, Karl Urban, Simon Pegg, Zachary Quinto, Zoe SaldanaOur most anticipated film of the year is the sequel to J.J. Abrams' Star Trek which sees the return of the crew of the Enterprise led by Chris Pine's Captain Kirk. Sherlock's Benedict Cumberbatch plays the intimidating and mysterious antagonist who will put Kirk in a position where he must earn the Captain's chair he occupies.

  1. Desolation of Smaug and Into Darkness are the movies I’m most looking forward to this year. I’ll be checking out Thor 2 as well at some point.

    • same here. if you go over to the oen discussion, some dude put up an awesome plot theory for hobbit 2…look about half way down the author is superedge101

    • Lol!

  2. Also, my wanna-be editor persona noticed some mistakes: Ron Burgundy’s name was misspelled, and RED came out in 2010, not 2012.

    • Whoops. And we had four people look at this, lol. Fixed!

  3. “The high caliber cast and incredible trailers should make Gangster Squad an awards season contender for 2013 even with its unfortunate January release date.”

    The trailers to this movie are some of the shi**iest trailers I’ve ever seen. It feels as if I’ve seen the whole damn movie. And the movie just looks like crap all around, I laugh every time I hear Nick Nolte talking at the beginning of the trailer, too ridiculous.

  4. Kick-Ass 2 is no doubt my most anticipated film of 2013.

  5. My most anticipated:

    1.Catching Fire
    2.Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug
    3.Thor: The Dark World
    4.Iron Man 3
    5.Man of Steel
    6.Hangover part III
    7.The Incredible Burt Wonderstone
    8.Monsters University
    9.Identity Thief
    10.Despicable Me 2

  6. how the hell could a fast and furious movie out do everything else ? those movies are nothing but trashy b-grade ‘action’ (if you can even call it that) and have high tailed away from what they originally where – race movies. fast 5 barely had any racing, action, hot women or cool cars it tried to hard at being everything and failed at being anything but a mess of a movie. plus the ending reveal was just a big joke.

    • I agree. How it’s even made this list is beyond me. Anyway, MoS #1, all day for me. Need to see a Wolvie trailer b4 I can cement the #2 spot.

  7. Iron Man 3
    Man of Steel
    Pacific Rim
    Thor 2
    Elysium definitely get my money….
    Curious about Oblivion, The Wolverine, Gravity, The Seventh Son and whatever intriguing indies that pop up…BRING IT ON 2013 CINEMA!!!!

  8. I think this lineup looks rather weak with the exception of Man of Steel and Star Trek.

    • lol, rather weak?!…MOS, Star Trek, Hobbit, Thor, Iron Man, Wolverine, Catching Fire alone would make it an amazing year, nevermind all the others mentioned and not in this piece

  9. Where is Gravity?

    • It’s right under your feet. Sorry.

      • Not only am I sorry to you Kev, I feel sorrow for whoever just read that. God forgive me.

  10. Mine
    1.Star Trek 2
    2.Star Trek 2
    3.Ironman 3
    4.Thor 2
    5.Star Trek
    6.Man Of Steel
    7.Pacific Rim
    9.Wolverine 2
    10.Star Trek 2

    • Wow someone is existed for the new Star Trek, as am I, and I can’t believe I forgot “ The Hobbit, TDOS.”

    • The next 16 they didn’t list but will complete my list of movies for 2013.

      Olympus Has Fallen

      After Earth

      The Internship

      This is the End

      World War Z

      We’re the Millers

      Paranormal Activity 5

      Jack Ryan

  12. I’m shocked and confused that there is no mention Ellen McLain voicing the Jaegars in Pacific Rim…

    • A little too much like Portal if you ask me. That one trailer I got pulled out of it because of it.

      • She was intentionally made to sound like Glados from Portal, though there’s no connection between the two franchises other than that.

        • Ya, del Toro talked about doing that intentionally, saying it’ll sound different in the actual film. I don’t get why though.

  13. A Good Day to Die Hard, Kick Ass 2, RED2, and Gangster Squad look the most interesting to me.

    I’ll wait and see about Pacific Rim, Iron Man 3 and Thor 2.

    Not so fussed about The Hobbit movies, they seem more about making money, the original story would never have made three 3 hour films, let alone have enough material to make one 3 hour film. Will wait for it to come out on cable.

    • The thing is though, they’re not just using “the original story”.
      Peter Jackson and co. are using Tolkien’s unpublished notes, as well as the appendices from LOTR to expand and add more depth to the story.

      Don’t take this the wrong way (and I mean no disrespect), but don’t be so close-minded when it comes to The Hobbit. Everyone seems so focused on the fact that the story is being divided into three parts, that they’re not even paying attention to what the story is actually about! If people forget about the fact that it’s gonna be a three-parter and just WATCH the movie whilst paying attention, they’ll see exactly why it’s being divided.

      • Personally I like the first Hobbit movie, but my wife was highly disappointed it because of all the add in. As she puts it where it sticks to the book it is very good, where it stray it sucks.

        The main issue it turns out is how it turns the Hobbit from being a simple charming adventure story to being something being this epic tale better and more closely tied to the Lord of the Rings.

        Personally, I enjoy both the book and the movie for their own merits. I like how the movie provides the context of the actual importance of the dwarven quest and how it is set into the events of Middle Earth.

        The one thing I was surprised to discover though is that The Hobbit is actually a two movie book. Even if you subtract out the extended bits, I still would have ended the movie right where it does and save the rest for a second movie. To do otherwise just would have felt rushed.

      • Couldn’t agree more…there’s sooooo much information that can be used from the time of the Hobbit right up to LOTR

  14. 1. Man Of Steel
    2. Iron Man 3
    3. The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug
    4. Thor: The Dark World (I keep forgetting that it’s coming out this year!)
    5. The Wolverine
    6. Star Trek Into Darkness
    7. RED 2
    8. The World’s End
    9. Pacific Rim
    10. Elysium
    11. Argo (2013 release date here)
    12. Django Unchained (2013 release date here)
    13. Good Day To Die Hard
    14. Gangster Squad
    15. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

    Oblivion, Pain & Gain, Monsters University, OldBoy and Zero Dark Thirty also have my interest… but I’ll have to see what my movie budget looks like when those come out.

  15. Here’s what I’m looking forward to so far this year in no particular order:

    Pacific Rim
    Iron Man 3
    Thor: The Dark World
    The Great Gatsby
    The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug
    Man of Steel
    Monsters University
    The Wolverine
    Oz the Great and Powerful

  16. Either this is a terrible list or there is just s*** movies coming out this year.

  17. you forgot OZ: the great and powerful

    • oz the horrible and overrated

    • Nope, we didn’t forget. It just wasn’t close to our top 25.

  18. That fact that Ender’s Game was not listed scares me. A movie for that book has been hoped for by fans since 1984, which I think qualifies it as number one more than any other movie on that list.

  19. What about World War Z?!

    • Definitely not in our top 30 or 40 :|

  20. No This Is The End?

  21. How awesome is the talent coming up in 2013 and am glad 2013 has walked in2 our lives with more promise and negating all false illusions of the World ENDING on 21DEC2012, am glad and knew it hopefully becoz of my trust and truth of the Bible.MY fav list would be as irrespective of release date but with all due respect to the amazing talents that are on the way

    • Thank you!

  22. Most anticipate for me is Upstream Color by Shane Carruth.

  23. FF6 but no World War Z?….

    • Definitely :)

  24. My top 12 is

    12. Carrie
    11. Elyisum
    10. The Wolverine
    9. Hobbit Desolation Of Smaug
    8. Fast And Furious 6
    7. Evil Dead
    6. Catching Fire
    5. Star Trek Into Darkness
    4. Iron Man 3
    3. Man Of Steel
    2. Thor The Dark World
    1. Pacific Rim
    Pacific rim more than my favorite marvel hero because it has actors i like, monsters, the big director and because it isn’t trying to compete with other things

  25. All look worth seeing and im ready for some trailers mainly for the new Kick Ass, Sin City 2, Thor 2, and RED 2

  26. I agree with the first 7, plus numerous others on the list. 2013 is going to be a good years for movies!

  27. Most anticipated movie for me is “Man of Steel”. I would have said Star Trek but since there was one recently, I kinda already know it will or should be good.

    It’s been so long since we have had a good Superman film, the last couple attempts have been failures. Can the new vision of Superman be a success? I sure hope so.

  28. Interesting heads up, Rob! Though I must confess that my interest was only piqued from No.12- which was worrisome to me. I will certainly not miss 8 of those movies in the theatres:- nos. 12, 10, 6-1. Not sure about the rest- might wait for the DVDs or something. Not also sure about a ‘bad-ass’ Clark Kent as you mentioned. I prefer him ‘mild-mannered’ for a more interesting contrast.

    My list of 8 would be in this order:-
    1. Thor: the Dark World
    2. The Wolverine
    3. Sin City
    4. Man of Steel
    5. Iron Man 3
    6. Star Trek Into the Darkness
    7. Red 2
    8. The Hobbit

  29. I can’t believe the new 300 didn’t get any love!! It’s on my top 3 list!
