Weird Cool Dumb’s Most Anticipated Movies of Summer 2013
Last year’s “most anticipated” list covered the entire year, but since we’re already a third of the way through 2013, I decided to focus in on the summer. Last year’s list met and exceeded my expectations in most areas (‘The Avengers’ & ‘Life of Pi’) and fell flat in others. It’ll be interesting to see how things pan out this year.
Here it goes. The following are the movies I want to see most this summer (in order of release date).
‘Iron Man 3’ [May 3, 2013]
The word on the street is that this isn’t the Iron Man movie you’re expecting (in a good way). I can’t wait to see the first Marvel movie of the summer!
‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ [May 15, 2013]
J.J. Abrams’ first Star Trek movie was fantastic. Based on the trailer, ‘Into Darkness’ will follow in its footsteps. If only J.J. would stick to Star Trek & stay away from Star Wars.
‘The Kings Of Summer’ [May 31, 2013]
I’m hoping this Sundance favorite is at least partially as awesome as this trailer.
‘Much Ado About Nothing’ [June 7, 2013]
Joss Whedon. That is all.
‘This Is The End’ [June 12, 2013]
I love me some meta. This film is packed with talent & self-referential comedy.
‘Monsters University’ [June 21, 2013]
I’d rather see Pixar steer away from sequels, but this looks like a lot of fun.
‘Pacific Rim’ [July 12, 2013]
Guillermo del Toro has tapped into the mind of his 13 year-old self and created a modern Godzilla.
‘Elysium’ [August 9, 2013]
I thoroughly enjoyed ‘District 9’ and can’t wait to see Neill Blomkamp’s follow-up.
‘The World’s End’ [August 23, 2013]
Edgar Wright never disappoints. I can’t wait to see the conclusion to the ‘Shaun of the Dead’/’Hot Fuzz’ trilogy.
Which of these are you most excited about? Did I miss anything? Let me know in the comment section below.
