Must see movies of 2013

2012 gave us some awesome movies. Avengers Assemble, Dark Knight Rises, The Hobbit; An Unexpected Journey, Rise of the Guardians, and two dozen others that i could list but won’t. 2013 looks set to be just as, if not more so, exciting in terms of movies being released. 

First of all, there is the highly anticipated second installment of The Hobbit trilogy, The Desolation of Smaug. Peter Jackson teased us with that final shot of Smaug awakening just as Bilbo and the dwarves caught the first glimpse of Erebor. Only a few images have been released so far and what they show is very promising. An unexpected journey divided audiences, some said it was too long, others too padded out etc. but i thoroughly enjoyed it and cannot wait to see Desolation of Smaug and see what the dragon is actually going to look like. 

Another must see movie of 2013 is the highly anticipated sequel to JJ Abrams box office smash hit and critically acclaimed reboot of Star Trek. I was never a fan of the tv show, but the first few minutes of JJ’s vision of Trek hooked me and the sequel, Into Darkness has been on my ‘can’t wait to see’ list since it was announced. The trailer is awesome, one of the best i’ve seen this year and it’ll be great to see all the characters back and see a genuinely awe inspiring science fiction movie from JJ, who is fast becoming my favourite director – though he still hasn’t knocked Spielberg off that top position yet. 

Elsewhere in sci-fi there is Tom Cruise led Oblivion, After Earth with Will and Jaden Smith, Elysium from the director of the superlative District 9, Guillermo Del Toro’s action packed looking Pacific Rim and the adaption of Ender’s Game starring Harrison Ford. 

In the world of Marvel we are getting Iron Man 3 that, if the trailer is anything to go by, will be a vast improvement on the somewhat disappointing second installment. We also get Thor: The Dark world which promises to be more game of thrones than its predecessor and deliver some epic, fantasy battles. 

2013 looks set to be a groundbreaking year of cinema, specifically in fantasy. Which movies are you most looking forward to? 


About Sam Whitehouse

Sam spends most of his time in a different world to other people. If it isn’t one he’s created himself, it’s one he’s reading about. In the rare moments when this isn’t the case, Sam can either be found addicted to a sci-fi or crime show, re-watching Marvel movies, finishing up an assignment for his final year of studying Creative Writing at Sheffield Hallam University, or trying to get the dozens of ideas for stories in his head under some kind of control. Sam has lived in the same small village in Yorkshire, surrounded by countryside on all sides ever since he could remember. His childhood saw him get into plenty of scrapes climbing trees and crossing rivers and generally believing he was Indiana Jones. Sam gives credit to his Grandad for him wanting to be a writer, and his bedtime stories for keeping Sam’s imagination stoked. But credit must also go to Steven Spielberg, J K Rowling and Stephen King, who have provided plenty of inspiration over the years, too. Sam writes what he reads, and that is pretty much anything—save romance. Fantasy, thrillers, or crime: once an idea takes root, he can’t stop until the world, characters, and plot are on paper. A huge Marvel fan, Sam one day hopes to pen a screenplay for one of their movies, or direct one, or do anything at all related to one. Until then, he’ll stick to his own fantasy worlds and wait for Marvel’s phone call.
