24. 'Old Boy', Director: Spike Lee
20. 'The Monuments Men', Director: George Clooney
16. 'Elysium', Director: Neil Blomkamp
14. "Oblivion" with yes, Tom Cruise. And yes, I actually think Tom Cruise can act.
13. 'The Wolverine'
11. 'Iron Man 3', Director: Shane Black
10. 'Thor: The Dark World'
9. 'Kick-Ass 2'
8. 'Ender's Game'
7. 'The World's End', Director: Edgar Wright We finally get the third part of the loose Simon Pegg/Nick Frost trilogy.
6. 'Gravity', Director: Alfonso Cuaron
5. 'Pacific Rim', Director: Guillermo Del Toro If the horrible parents that were Transformers' franchise and Godzilla had a love child/prodigy, Pacific Rim would be that baby.
4. 'The Lone Ranger', Director: Gore Verbinski This unexpectedly big budget blockbuster just might make up for Verbinski's Pirates snoozefest trilogy.
3. 'Man of Steel', Director: Zack Snyder

OMG, I'm drooling too much...
1. 'Star Trek Into Darkness', Director: J.J. Abrams

Untitled Terrence Malick Project (2013) which has two of my favorite actors in Ryan Gosling and Michael Fassbender.
Steve McQueen's (not THAT Steve McQueen. He'd be a zombie if he was directing films) Twelve Years a Slave (2013).
The Coen Brother's Inside Llewyn Davis (2012)
Nicolas Winding Refn's Only God Forgives (2013)
Terry Gilliam' s The Zero Theorem (2013)

And a few miscellaneous films...
Monsters University
The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug
Brad Pitt fighting an entire army of zombies in World War Z (2013)

Clearly even this is a MAJORLY incomplete list as it lacks major classic film theatrical rereleases, low profile independent and foreign films. I'd still like to know if anyone knows of a good Coming Soon foreign film release site for the US. Any ideas (other then IMDb... which never is a help in terms of up and coming foreign films in NYC).

So? What are you looking forward to? What release date are you etching on your calendar?

Twelve Years a Slave
A man living in New York during the mid-1800s is kidnapped and sold into slavery in the deep south.

This story-line sounds intriguing. Makes you realize what a wild, inhumane and lawless place the USA was in its early years.

I also like:

*The Wolf of Wall Street
*Before Midnight (just because I have to watch every trilogy)
*Star Trek into Darkness
*The Zero Theorem
*A Most Wanted Man
*The Great Gatsby

As for Old Boy, I saw the first version of that film, so acclaimed by film buffs, at a movie-house in Montreal. I felt like they were testing me, to see whether I would walk out or not. I don't know whether I passed their test -- or how their movie ended.

I'm looking forward to The Great Gatsby but am equally dreading the use of hip hop music that's so flooding out of the speakers while the trailer plays. I'm hoping it's just a idiotic marketing decision for the trailer and that there is no modern music in the actual movie.

I too survived the screening of the original Oldboy. Wink
