Film Junk Poll: What is Your Most Anticipated Movie of 2013?

It’s time to kick things off with the first official poll of the year and now that all of the 2012 lists are out of the way, we can finally start looking ahead to our most anticipated movies of 2013. As always, it’s difficult to narrow the field down to just a handful of options, but for the sake of brevity we’ll limit the official choices to mainly blockbusters. However, don’t let that stop you from discussing some of your other most anticipated flicks as well. Please note that we’re also being forced to experiment with a new polling widget, so there’s a chance there may be some technical hiccups here. Now go ahead and cast your vote in this week’s poll and then sound off in the comments below!

  • Colin

    Not a fan of the new polling tool (doesn’t show me the results on the FJ page after I vote) but go The World’s End!

  • http://www.seandwyer.net Sean

    I should mention that if anyone is aware of a better free poll widget, I’m all ears!

  • Tum Tum Tyranus

    Oldboy

  • CrumbThumber

    I feel like I can’t tell the difference between all these outer space movies.

  • CrumbThumber

    Or at least these big budget sci-fi movies. I can’t keep track of them all and the trailers look at the same.

  • Owozifa

    Is that shot from the second Hobbit film supposedly? It would kinda suck if they killed off the dragon in the second part because I really don’t know as a whole other film after that would be as climatic.

  • http://www.seandwyer.net Sean

    Yep, first official still from The Desolation of Smaug.

  • http://www.criticalmasscast.com Greg

    “Before Midnight” directed by Richard Linklater starring Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy is my #1 pick. If I had to chose something off the poll it would definitely be Man Of Steel- I’m a huge Superman fan and I think the writing and the visual tone could make this something worthwhile.

  • Christian

    @Greg, do you even know who’s writing the script?

    And Sean: thx for the new poll. As long as you can have more than 10 options, I’m happy.

  • Essie

    Spike Jonze has a new film this year too. Most looking forward to the new Almodovar.

  • Gerry

    If The Hobbit hadn’t been cash grabbed into 3 films it’d be that. But the thought of sitting through a lot of boring filler means it’s Star Trek.

    I like the new polling system.

  • csidle

    Holy shit. Linklater’s doing a third movie in the Before series? Should’ve been on there, but I understand why it isn’t – I’ve not heard of that yet.

    Anyway, the lineup isn’t very strong compared to 2012. I’d say it’s a close call between Hobbit 2, Man of Steel, Star Trek, Elysium and Gravity. I went with Gravity, cus Children of Men was amazing.

  • http://www.criticalmasscast.com Greg

    @Christian, csidle: Linklater, Delpy and Hawke are doing the writing again on this film which takes place in Greece. The film was officially announced just before TIFF last year and it will be debuting at Sundance later this month. Here is the IMDb link: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2209418/

  • http://letterboxd.com/batemanbegins/ Zac

    Everyone seems to be forgetting that a Martin Scorsese movie is coming out this year, The Wolf of Wall Street. Also failing to get any mention, 12 Years a Slave and The Counselor boast talented filmmakers with fantastic ensembles at their disposal.

  • Brendan

    Tough poll, there’s a lot of movies on the list I’m looking forward to. But I went with for Star Trek, it just edged out Man of Steel for my vote. I think Trek got the edge because I really liked the first one.

  • David Valkenet

    Before Midnight!!!

  • anton

    man of steel and star trek are in the lead? wtf?

    i was torn between pacific rim and gravity.

  • Tum Tum Tyranus

    Actually Stoker is my #1, and then Spike Lee’s Oldboy.

  • rjdelight

    write in vote of White House Down.

  • MrHorse

    voted Anchorman: The Legend Continues

  • T

    Looks like I’ll be spending even more time in my living room this year. Oh well…

  • Vikke

    Mine is definitely Only God Forgives. From this list probably The Wolverine.

  • La Menthe

    Greg, I think he was referring to Man of Steel — which, besides being administered by a poor director, is being written by one of the biggest shithole writers in Hollywood: David Goyer.

    and they’ll fuck it up, but I’m curious about “Ender’s Game.”

  • devolutionary

    I think it would be funnier if None of the Above was a viable option and got the majority of votes. I picked Star Trek but w/ the enjoyment level I got out of Hobbit (separate from the Rings trilogy), Hobbit: Desolation will catch my eye later in the year. Man of Steel and The Wolverine were originally on my radar since last year but I’m less interested w/ both since the original directors dropped out.

  • David Sandström

    For me it’s Before Midnight and Only God Forgives. Voted for The Great Gatsby but could’ve gone with Anchorman also.

  • http://www.criticslmasscast.com Greg

    Animation fans!! Hayao Miyazaki has a new one coming: “The Wind Rises”- an action adventure biography that tells the story of World War II fighter plane designer Jir? Horikoshi. Goro Miyazaki, his son, also has his film “From Up On Poppy Hill” debuting here in NA finally as a new release at the TIFF BELL Lightbox in March.

  • http://www.criticslmasscast.com Greg

    Oh, regarding my comment on the writing of Man Of Steel- yes, Goyer may be writing but I’m pretty sure Nolan producing and story credit on this film may help keep things in check :)

  • http://www.criticslmasscast.com Greg

    Star Trek: In Darkness looks slick- as is the usual polished approach to all of Abrams’ cinematic efforts – but this isn’t Star Trek lets be honest- these are action adventure stories with the Trek branding – I’m hoping there will be a lot more thematic cohesion to this one- the trailers don’t have me convinced on that yet…

  • http://deven-science.livejournal.com/ Deven Science

    It’s Elysium, easily. District 9 was so good, that this is the movie I’ve been looking forward to the most.

    Now a word on the poll widget. It is annoying that you have to go to their site to see the results. Also, when I was directed to their site after voting, a car insurance pop-up followed, so that was irritating.

  • Theman

    If you had Before Midnight on that list. It would be number one by a million. But I when with At Worlds End. That trio never let me down before. But I’m interested in every movie on that list to some degree. Which is far from always the case.

  • Paul Andrews

    It has to be Frank:
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1605717
    Michael Fassbender playing a character loosely based on a sadly missed hero of mine, Frank Sidebottom.

  • Eleanor

    Ahem. Ender’s Game, anyone?

  • Eleanor

    And I should clarify. I don’t have high expectations for Ender’s Game, it’s just been a film that I have been looking out for for years now.

  • Steve

    Bennett Miller’s (Capote, Moneynball) “Foxcatcher” starring Steve Carrell, Channing Tatum, and Mark Ruffalo sounds very interesting to me since the true story of John DuPont and David Schultz has a local connection to the southeast Pennsylvania/Delaware area. And it’s about wrestling!
