The Predicted Top Ten

People who added this item 1529 Average listal rating (984 ratings) 6.5 IMDB Rating 7

Pro: The Avengers has skyrocketed every Marvel product to new heights, and positive feedback from the original.

Con: It's scheduled to be released just one week before The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, limiting it's holding power.

Prediction: $200-210mil.

People who added this item 862 Average listal rating (561 ratings) 6.7 IMDB Rating 7.1

Pro: The F&F franchise has a built in audience who will see it no matter what, and Fast Five brought in new fans, becoming the most critically and financially successful film of the franchise.

Con: It's opening the same day as The Hangover, Part III, which would attract a similar audience, as well as haters of the first five films.

Prediction: $215-235mil.

People who added this item 1045 Average listal rating (638 ratings) 6.1 IMDB Rating 6.3

Pro:Disney scored big with Alice in Wonderland a couple of years ago, and this looks to along those lines, at least visually. A solid cast, and a director who helmed one of the biggest trilogies ever should benefit this movie.

Con: Alice in Wonderland was a divisive film, and the marketing is relying heavily on it. Some Oz fans will be drawn away, seeing it as a detriment to the original classic.

Prediction: $220-240mil.

People who added this item 1169 Average listal rating (748 ratings) 6.6 IMDB Rating 7.4

Pro: The original ended up being a massive hit in 2012, becoming the second biggest animated movie of that year, behind only Toy Story 3.

Con: It's opening just two weeks after Monster's University, which should still be holding quite well by that point.

Prediction: $230-270mil.

People who added this item 1315 Average listal rating (883 ratings) 7 IMDB Rating 7.3

Pro: The original was a big hit with critics and audiences, and Pixar has a decent track record with sequels at the box office.

Con: Pixar's last two films, Brave and Cars 2 were not recieved that warmly, and it's been twelve years since the original; longer than the divide between the later Toy Story sequels.

Prediction: About $275mil.

Pro: Critics weren't very kind with An Unexpected Journey, but fans were. It currently holds an 8.2 rating IMDb, and is fast approaching $300mil.

Con: Not all of the LOTR fans were appeased, and the reactions to the 48fps. were not quite enthusiastic.

Prediction: $270-300mil.

Man of Steel (2013)

Pro: The trailers have been quite exciting thus far, promising a distinct new look to an old story. The goodwill producer Christopher Nolan brings from the Dark Knight trilogy should help in large measure.

Con: Superman's last big screen endeavor wasn't met with the most positive response, and some fans maybe weary of Zack Snyder's style of directing.

Prediction: $300-340mil.

People who added this item 1302 Average listal rating (881 ratings) 7.4 IMDB Rating 7.8

Pro: Virtually everyone loves the original, which helped it reach over $250 in the U.S. The cast and crew have promised a wild ride, and the trailers, along with the 9-minute prologue, do nothing to dispute that.

Con: Some people dislike J.J. Abrams style, and the direction the original took. Also in consideration are just true-blue Star Trek haters.

Prediction: $320-380mil.

Iron Man 3 (2013)

Pro: The Iron Man franchise has always been big, and the huge success of last years The Avengers can only help.

Con: A small one. Iron Man 2's lukewarm reception could stave off a few viewers.

Prediction: $330-400mil.

It seems like a guarantee, at least this early on, that Catching Fire will take the top spot by the end of the year. I'll forgo the format to simply say this... The opening movie in the franchise made $408mil at the box office and recieved various glowing reviews for critics and audiences.

Prediction: Anywhere within $400-500mil.

2012 was the most financially successful year in movie history, but looking at some of the competition this year, it may have to settle for 2nd place. This is my list of what I think will be the biggest movies of 2013. LET THE GAMES BEGIN!.

Great List! I think you're right

I would like Man of Steel to make the most but I gotta agree Catching Fire will take the top spot.

Already wrong. Didn't even think of Identity Thief. Or The Croods.

It is a pretty solid list, except for the top spot. The Hunger Games might be a stronger franchise than Twilight but it will never manage to get the top spot like the Harry Potter franchise back in those days.

I would go for 'The Hobbit part 2' as n.1

About your prediction that 2013 will beat 2012 in terms of revenue, I think you're wrong. Back in 2012' you had Batman, James Bond and the whole Avengers together. Those were huge and except for The Hobbit, there is nothing else of this huge showing up.

Nice one with 'Iron Man 3'! It has become way bigger than I thought it would be and I really wonder if anything will beat that this year.

- Catching Fire : still wouldn't put my money on it
- Man of Steel : it could be huge but it could be as underwhelming as 'Superman Returns'
- The Lone Ranger : I secretly hope it will be a terrible flop so we won't get multiple sequels like 'Pirates of the carribean' and I really preferred when Johnny Depp wasn't a huge box-office star but was making instead some smaller but fascinating movies. It could be big though...
- The Hobbit part 2 : I hope it is going to be massive but will it beat 'Iron Man 3' ?
