10. Pain and Gain
Set for release in April this year, this movie contains two main ingredients which give it the potential for landing huge success in the Box Office. These two ingredients are none other than the experienced Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. What’s even more interesting is that Wahlberg underwent extensive gym training and has buffed up quite substantially to land a part in this film and star opposite WWE legend The Rock. The movie is an adaption of a true story about a couple of Gym Freaks who are just too bored of their monotonous everyday lives and come up with a plan of making a Gang of Robbers and Kidnapper. However, things go horribly wrong.
9. The Hangover Part III
This is the third and final part of the Hangover Series and is anticipated to be the craziest of the three. The “Wolfpack” adventure will finally see an end as the gang heads off to Amsterdam. Be sure that the creators of the Hangover series have a lot of surprises up their sleeves to make sure that the series ends with an epic and fitting boom. The huge fan following was a bit disappointed with the sequel but they will definitely line up for tickets to take part in one last crazy ride come this May.
8. After Earth
Will Smith is back and he has brought his sound Jayden around this time as both Father and Son star in this eagerly anticipated epic Sci-Film. The Earth is no longer fit for human habitat and you will get to see the reason why humans left Earth in the first place. The movie will take you through one epic journey telling the story of a Father & Son who accidentally crash land on Planet Earth and now must use their survival instincts and do whatever is needed to battle the elements hoping for help to arrive.
7. The World’s End
Our Top Ten Best Movies list for 2013 would never be complete without a British Comedy in it. The World’s End stars both Nick Frost and Simon Pegg and for most people, this cast would be the only reason they go to watch this movie. The World’s End shows a simple amusing story of a group of guys who are trying to relive their golden days as they go out to every Pub in town reliving old memories and having fun. But little do they know that something big is about to happen. Your funny bone will definitely be in for a sound tickling as you see how they battle the odds trying to avoid the catastrophe that’s coming their way.
Although Oblivion is another movie where the Earth is abandoned (the idea never gets too old, does it?), we still have it on our list particularly because of one great actor – Tom Cruise. Tom Cruise plays the character of the guy who is sent to Earth for a small job. While he is down there, he experiences something that changes his entire perception about the entire Aliens vs Human War that supposedly drove the humans out of this planet. There are plenty of action-adventure scenes coupled with some cool futuristic gun fighting scenes and off course, the entire suspense and mystery in finding out about the truth.
5. Monster University
If you didn’t like Monsters Inc., you probably either didn’t have a childhood or an inner child inside you. Although more than a decade has passed since Monsters Inc. was released, Monster University is expected to be just as good, if not better. People would line up to watch this movie for a number of reasons for instance they will be able to relate to the many jokes and other things you see in this prequel with the first. Set for release in June, Monster University has all the hype of making a huge blast this summer.
4. Star Trek: Into the Darkness
For all you Star Trek lovers out there, you are in for a treat this summer as you see the famous Starship Enterprise lock horns with one of the most feared and notorious villains in the history of the franchise. Fans will be get to see how the story between Captain Kirk and Spock unfolded which propelled the franchise into the popularity it enjoys today.
3. Man of Steel
The trailers of Man of Steel alone were enough to create a big hype for the movie and has a lot of people excited and eagerly anticipating the release scheduled for somewhere around June. After the huge flop that filmmakers had to deal with the last time they created Superman, many movie lovers are thinking if the team behind Man of Steel has done enough this time around to give the legend the justice he deserves.
This movie is set in the future and is directed by legendary director Steven Spielberg. This is reason enough for movie lovers to line up and anticipate another Spielberg epic. The name says it all – expect plenty of futuristic robots and unexplored worlds. The movie is basically an adaption of the novel Andromeda Strain by Daniel H. Wilson.
1. Iron Man 3
Iron Man 3 is tipped to be the most eagerly awaited movie this year and the creators have done everything to make sure that the sequel of the first two releases lives up to the expectation and all the hype surrounding it. Robert Downey Jr. is back in his familiar role as Iron Man although there has been a change in the Director.
