My most anticipated 2013 releasesby Speeders | created - 24 Dec 2012 | updated - 16 Aug 2013 | Public
At first it didn't appear there were many movies coming this year that sparked my interest. After digging deeper I discovered I couldn't be more wrong. Lots of great directors releasing films this years as well as interesting indie films and some appealing blockbusters too. This list will probably be updated religiously. Will also contain films from my 2012 list that were pushed back.
