Movie Monday: The "What I'm excited about in 2013" edition

It's the very last day of 2012, and that can only mean one thing: it's time for me to Kermit flail with fangirly excitement about movies that are coming out in 2013!!

(Note: yes, a good chunk of these have already been released in the US. Australia is behind the times, yo.)

The Life of Pi
I haven't read the book, and with any luck I'll get the chance to do so before I see the movie. Based on the trailer, this is going to be fairly extraordinary.

The Silver Linings Playbook
I haven't really liked Bradley Cooper in anything since Alias. I'm hoping this is the movie that's going to change that. It looks pretty awesome. Plus, it stars Jennifer Lawrence, who I not-so-secretly want to be my best friend. 

Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters
I mean, come on. This movie looks freaking amazing, in a completely terrible sort of a way. You can't tell me you don't want to see Jeremy Renner playing the medieval baby of Jason Bourne and Dean Winchester. 

Cloud Atlas
This one is either going to be a total mindfuck or a truly astonishing piece of cinema. Again, I've not read the book, and am hoping I get the chance to before it hits theatres. Tom Hiddleston recommended it on Twitter though, so it must be pretty good! 

Iron Man 3
Excuse me while I watch the trailer for the hundredth time and send fangirly emails to Kim. I honestly don't think there's any way it can suck. I mean, it's Robert Downey Jr playing Tony Stark playing Robert Downey Jr playing Tony Stark. It's like Inception, only less confusing and with more superheroes.

The Great Gatsby
I'm actually a little hesitant about this one, mostly because I'm not really enjoying the use of modern music over the trailers that have been released. BUT it worked for Moulin Rouge, so I guess I'll just have to wait and see...  At least I have the advantage of not having read the book a hundred thousand times, so I won't be upset if certain details are left out!

The Wolverine
YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS. I don't particularly care what it's about, I'm just psyched to have another X-Men movie coming out. And Hugh Jackman is always brilliant as Wolverine. 

Much Ado About Nothing
Whedon does Shakespeare in secret on the cheap with all his favourite actors? YES PLEASE OMG THIS NEEDS TO COME OUT LIKE RIGHT NOW. I mean, if nothing else, I want to see it because Wesley and Fred will finally get their happy ending! Also? Nathan Fillion, Clark Gregg, Sean Maher, Tom Lenk, Alexis Denisof and Amy Acker?? It's a Who's Who of the Whedon-verse.

Thor: The Dark World
As if anyone is surprised to see this on here. I loves me a Marvel movie, and considering this one costars Tom Hiddleston, adding it to the list of things I'm excited about was a no-brainer. ESPECIALLY when The Ninth Doctor is the villain of the movie! 

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
I can't wait to see how they handle the giant clockface that is the arena in this one! I just wish we didn't have to wait so freaking long for it to come out, you know?? 

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug
HOLY CRAP, YOU GUYS. After the ending of An Unexpected Journey, how can you NOT be excited about this movie?!?!?! I just...I mean...Benedict Cumberbatch as the voice of Smaug? Having conversation with Martin Freeman?? It's going to be made of win. Plus, DWARFMITAGE.

Basically, it's another year of sequels and comic book movies! I can't wait. What are you excited about seeing in 2013?

  1. Iron Man3, Silver Linings Playbook and ESPECIALLY Much Ado About Nothing - the least apt movie title EVER: Fillion & Maher back together in a Whedon film? Much Ado about EVERYTHING more like!

  2. I LOVED Silver Linings Playbook. Well-acted all around- my only complaint was that Jennifer Lawrence looks a little too young to be playing that character, but she acts so well it doesn't really matter.

    Also looking forward to Gatsby!

    God, I hadn't heard of that Hansel and Gretel movie until now. It looks ridiculous!

  3. I just saw the trailer for Hansel and Gretel for the first time and it was glorious! I need to see that movie!

  4. Damn, Benedict Cumberbatch is the voice of Smaug???? I'M BEING ROBBED HERE, STUPID GERMANY!!! (Sorry for the shouting). I can't wait for the next part though!!

    Cloud Atlas is not out in Australia? It's even in cinemas here, actually it is so here that they only show it at stupid times no grown person goes to the movies.

    What I'm excited about is The Heat with Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy. Oh, and Admission because of TINA freaking FEY!

    Happy New Year!!

  5. SO MANY MOVIES! Life of Pi is already here in the US (as you know) and at first I wasn't super excited about it, but the more I hear the more I want to see it. Then HUNGER GAMES and HOBBIT.

    And I might have squealed like the fan-girl that I am when I saw the Gatsby trailer before Les Miserables the other day...

  6. I'm pretty excited about the great gatsby and the second Hobbit. :) IC and I went to the hobbit on New Years Eve.

  7. 1. I randomly saw that you have a tag called "screw you Borders" and I realised that I love you.

    2. I have faith in Baz Lurhman's ability to make movies amazing. See: Moulin Rouge, Romeo + Juliet. Awesome.

    2. HOLY FREAKING HELL THE HOBBIT NEEDS TO BE OUT TODAY! I've re-read the book twice since part one came out, and I just need this to be released and see it for my own eyes.

    3. Martin Freeman is the love of my life. Don't tell his wife, that would be awkward.


Leave me a comment and I'll love you forever (except for spambots...)
