There’s a reason I pay monthly for my Netflix account, have impersonated my mom to order more movie channels (don’t try this at home, kids), and regularly annoy my boyfriend for movie dates: I love movies. Love, love, love them. Sometimes, there’s nothing better than spending two hours of your life completely immersed in a fantasy land of beautiful people, exciting explosions and so-romantic-they-hurt love scenes.
So I’m super excited for the movies that are coming out in 2013. While some of them look so-so, a lot of them look amazing. These top 10 that I picked are definitely a few reasons to look forward to the new year. Whether you’re as big of a movie buff as myself or if you’re just looking for a few good date ideas, these picks are totally worth spending your money on. Watch the trailers, find out why we’re so excited for them, and start counting down the days until they’re released.
Gangster Squad, January 11
Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone, together again. Do I really need to say anything more? I’ve been waiting for this to be released for what feels like years. Plus, I’m a sucker for these gang movies – they’re so exciting.
Warm Bodies, February 1
This is a new take on zombie movies, and it looks seriously adorable. Starring Nicholas Hoult as a zombie who finally finds love, it’s sure to be adorable, funny and exciting all at once.
Identity Theft, February 8
Honestly, this movie looks totally silly and is probably going to be very stupid in a funny way, but I’m still going to see it… mainly because it stars Melissa McCarthy. If you loved Horrible Bosses, you’ll probably love this.
Oz The Great and Powerful, March 8
Since I love The Wizard Of Oz, Disney, James Franco and Mila Kunis, I’m pretty sure I’ll love this. It looks so whimsical and fun!
Admission, March 8
In my opinion, Paul Rudd and Tina Fey can do no wrong – so put them together and that probably makes an awesome movie, right? That’s what it looks like. The premise seems a little weird, but I’m down for it.
Spring Breakers, March 8
Get ready to see a completely different side of Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Benson – personally, I can’t wait. It’s about time these Hollywood angels starred in something a little more gritty! If this clip doesn’t get you excited, then all of the girl’s endless Instagram pictures should.
The Heat, April 5
Another movie starring Melissa McCarthy? Yes, please! And since Sandra Bullock is always amazing no matter what she’s doing, you know this one will be extra great. It’s about time we had a funny buddy cop movie starring two awesome ladies.
Iron Man 3, May 3
The third installment of Iron Man looks a little bit more dark and depressing than the other two – Iron Man seems to have lost his trademark sense of humor – but still seems worth seeing. As a comic book movie nerd, I’m super excited for this.
The Great Gatsby, May 10
The trailer for this movie is beautiful, so I’m expecting the film itself to be just as visually enjoyable. With stars like Leonardo Dicaprio, Tobey Maguire and Carey Mulligan, it seems like it can’t be anything but fabulous.
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, November 22
The movie everyone is most excited to see hasn’t released a trailer yet, but that doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be included on this list. I’ve yet to see the first film and I’m still excited for this. I promise I’ll catch myself up before then.
Which of these movies are you most excited to see? What did I miss? What are you going to see in the theater? Tell me in the comments!
