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'

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...
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?
