This is why I didn't want the world to end in December 2012.

Sin City was magnificent entertainment and about as visually arresting as it gets- exactly what a comic book film should be. We've waited a while, and I think we deserve to have this one be every bit as great.

Touchy Feely (2014)
Lynn Shelton, who directed Humpday and Your Sister's Sister, will hopefully give us yet another awesome character drama here. The cast is an indie film lover's dream: Ellen Page, Rosemarie DeWitt, Scoot McNairy from In Search of a Midnight Kiss and Alycia Delmore from Humpday. No, Mark Duplass isn't in it, but Ron Livingston is, so it's almost the same thing, right?

The title captures my feelings perfectly- I couldn't be more excited about Almodovar's next film. After diving into some of the darkest depths he's ever gone to in The Skin I Live In, he's gonna give us a comedy this year, which is something he hasn't done in a while. And it should be a riot.

It stars Ryan Gosling, it's from the director of Blue Valentine, and of the few people who've seen it, these are some of the comments that have emerged:

"A film so thematically and dramatically rich, soulful and suspenseful, it carves itself into your consciousness and refuses to leave."

"An epic crime sage that constantly subverts audience expectations. Incredible."

I'm there.

Side Effects (2013)
It's Soderbergh, and the cast looks great, but well, Soderbergh has yielded mixed results before even with great casts. What truly has captured my attention, though, is this masterpiece of a poster:

I had a strong dislike for Margot at the Wedding and thought Greenberg was merely okay. But the existence of both Kicking and Screaming and The Squid and the Whale gives me hope that Noah Baumbach will come back someday with yet another triumph of acerbic humor. Maybe this will be it.

The Coen brothers could make a movie about absolutely anything and I'll be there. And their last film, True Grit, wasn't really a Coen brothers' movie, if you know what I mean. So, we really haven't gotten our fix since A Serious Man in 2009. It's time.

Kick-Ass 2 (2013)
I really hope it's as fun and bold as the original.

After the fantastic Drive, Nicolas Winding Refn and Ryan Gosling team up once again in 2013, a year that looks to be every bit as big for Gosling as 2011 was. I saw a teaser for this the other day, and "intrigued" doesn't even begin to describe how I felt.
Okay, so my expectations were already tempered before I saw An Unexpected Journey, and now they're even more tempered. But I'll still be there on opening day. Any chance to visit Middle Earth is cause for excitement.

Mud (2013)
Jeff Nichols, the director of Take Shelter, teams up once again with the versatile, fearless Michael Shannon, along with a cast that includes Matthew McConaughey (who apparently needs to stick to roles like this and stop doing fucktard romantic comedies with Kate Hudson once and for all) and the very talented Sarah Paulson. Could be really interesting.

The 2009 Star Trek movie was exactly my idea of what summer popcorn fun should be. It was thrilling and exciting, but without overwhelming those of us who get dizzy when action sequences and shoot-outs go on for too long. And it had a great sense of humor. If we're going by the title alone, one could assume that this one's gonna take a turn for the more serious and profound. But if that's handled with the same amount of talent as what we saw in the first film, I see no reason why this won't still be awesome.

Another film directed by Scorsese and starring DiCaprio? I don't think we can expect anything other than greatness from this.

Gravity (2013)
The great Alfonso Cuarรณn directed the fantastic Y Tu Mama Tambien and the very good Children of Men. This one was originally slated for a late 2012 release, but it's gotten delayed. Some think that the release date will really determine what to expect from this one: if it's a summer release, we might expect something good-but-not-quite-great a la Prometheus, but if it gets released late in the year (closer to "awards season"), then we should hope for a splendid piece of cinema. But I disagree, and I think it has a chance to be a stunning experience, regardless of when it gets released, and I hope we can see it as soon as possible.

Wrong (2012)
If it's anywhere as original as Rubber, this should be an absolute treat.

I liked the first movie much more than I anticipated. But ask me again once I'm finished reading the Catching Fire book, which will be happening during the next few weeks.

Mia Wasikowska and Ezra Miller are two of the most impressive actors of their generation, and they're starring in some sort of adaptation of Madame Bovary that we don't know much about yet. I'd say it's worth at least waiting for a trailer and checking out the response from critics and/or any festival audience members.

It's co-directed and co-written by the writers of Superbad: Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen. It's got a bunch of Apatow regulars in the cast. It could be an absolute turd. It could be just all right. Or it could be a comedic triumph along the lines of Superbad, Knocked Up, Pineapple Express and 21 Jump Street. We'll see. The important thing with these "hard R" comedies of the Apatow brand is to ignore the trailers, because they're never able to show you the hilariously offensive material that we'll hopefully get from the actual movie.

2011's Thor did a lot of things really well. Superhero movies are here to stay. We might as well embrace the good/very good ones and hope we keep getting more of them.

This could be absolute crap, but hey, that's why it's at the bottom of the list. The cast is appealing. The plot synopsis looks offensively ludicrous, but then again, that's not always a sign of an impending disaster.

When I say "most anticipated films", I'm talking about my most anticipated films on January 10, 2013, which is when I compiled this list. It's very possible that there are other movies coming out soon that I'd be super excited about but that I simply haven't heard of. (You should know, however, that there's no way any film could dethrone the one I've placed as #1, as far as anticipation is concerned).

Of course, there's a chance that some of these won't end up getting released in 2013, and also, there's always a chance that I won't end up seeing some of them, ever (if the trailer sucks or if the early word of mouth is bad/terrible). I think these lists are more of a fun way of letting others know the sort of thing you're interested in/looking forward to, and the best thing about it is obviously that we can use it to find out about movies we may not have heard of otherwise.
