While you’ve been finishing off the Christmas leftovers and selection boxes, we at The Hollywood News have been busy compiling the very best of this year’s cinematic offerings. So, before you pop off out in your party gear and get on the champagne to see in the New Year, it’s time to celebrate 2013, movie-style.
Gravity took us to dizzying new technical heights, Shane Black split Iron Man fans by messing with Marvel canon, and Edgar Wright finished his Cornetto Trilogy in style. SeaWorld was condemned, James McAvoy lost his mind on more than one occasion, and Emma Watson and Daniel Radcliffe continued to shed their Harry Potter invisibility cloaks. Yes, our collaborative ten top list may lean very heavily on the blockbuster side, but all of these films and actors feature amongst the individual lists from our writers below, as well as a number of television entries »

2013 domestic box office record: History is made (once again) — if you pretend inflation doesn’t exist (photo: 2013 North American box office no. 1 movie, ‘Iron Man 3,’ with Robert Downey Jr.) Even though Will Ferrell’s comedy Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues and the latest Martin Scorsese-Leonardo DiCaprio collaboration, The Wolf of Wall Street, have opened more modestly than expected, while the Justin Bieber concert movie Believe has been totally discredited, the 2013 Christmas and New Year’s season has been quite strong at the domestic box office. According to Variety, figures are up 10% compared to 2012, while the total 2013 box office tally up to December 29 is a mere $1.6 million lower than the $10.837 billion record set last year. Does this latest record-breaking box office news sound too good to be true? Well, perhaps that’s because it is (too good to be true). See, Thor and Loki and Bilbo and Katniss »

Darren Aronofsky's Noah looks like an insanely epic film. I can't wait to see more footage from it. I have no doubt that this will be one of the filmmaker's greatest accomplishments. While we wait for another trailer, here are a couple of high resolution photos from the film featuring the Ark under-construction and the prophet Noah (Russell Crowe) comforting his wife (Jennifer Connolly).
The story follows a man chosen by God for a great task–to build an ark to save creation before an apocalyptic flood destroys the world. To watch the trailer for the film, click here!

The Image Comics book will offer another take on the Black Swan director's upcoming Biblical epic.
Writer Ari Handel and artist Niko Henrichon are collaborating with Aronofsky on the project.
"It has been a great thrill to see an artist of Niko's calibre interpret the Noah screenplay through his own vision," said Aronofsky. "The results are lavish.
"This take on the story is from the original screenplay Ari and I wrote, before we began the long process of shaping the story for the big screen. So it is a slightly different take on the material. This book, not merely a movie companion piece, will hopefully give readers a rare insight into the creative process."
The book marks Henrichon's first major comics project since working with Brian K Vaughan on the acclaimed Pride of Baghdad.
The ladies of the big screen were kicking butt this year, with sassy characters like Hit-Girl and The Hobbit's Tauriel showing off their physical talents, while other female characters like Katniss, Emma Watson, and Warm Bodies' Julie were just fighting to stay alive. We certainly wouldn't want to face off with one of these ladies in a dark alley, but which of these tough-girl characters was the best of 2013? »

Paramount Pictures has released a couple of new high-resolution images from director Darren Aronofsky’s upcoming Biblical epic Noah. The film is, of course, an adaptation of the Bible’s Great Flood story, but with an Aronofsky twist. These new images give us a look at the practical ark that was built for the production as well as Russell Crowe’s titular character embracing his wife, played by Jennifer Connelly. The first two trailers for the pic promised plenty of gorgeous imagery and a literal boat load of CGI animals, and I’m eager to see what else Aronofsky has up his sleeve in the full film. Hit the jump to take a look at the new images. The film also stars Logan Lerman, Ray Winstone, Emma Watson, Douglas Booth, and Anthony Hopkins. Noah opens March 28, 2014. Via Paramount Pictures.

Great films leave a mark. A shot will linger in your mind's eye, strains from a score will haunt you, and the perfect quote will always be associated with your experience of seeing a film.Below, Cine-List selects and ranks ten memorable movies quotes from 2013.10. The quote: “I’m a firm believer in Karma, and I think this situation is a huge learning lesson for me. I want to lead a country one day, for all I know.”Who said it: Emma Watson, as Nicki, in Sofia Coppola’s “The Bling Ring.”Why it’s so great: Self-delusion, vapidity, false spirituality and vanity as a form of escape are all at the heart of Coppola’s dreamy, spikey film about celebrity culture. This line from the leader of a teen crime ring is spot-on in that regard -- and Watson’s delivery is hilarious. (Screenplay online.)9. The quote: “We’re only here briefly. »

Making a good trailer is not an easy proposition; while some trailers come off as too vague, telling the audience nothing enticing about the project it is promoting, others can seen too expository, revealing the plot of the entire movie in two minutes. A great trailer, however, takes on a life of its own, becoming something worth revisiting regardless of one’s thoughts on the film it is attached to. Every year sees a few such trailers released, and 2013 was no different. Part 1 of our list of the year’s best trailers was released last week, and here is Part 2.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt has proved himself a versatile force in front of the camera. However, nobody really knew what to expect from his first directorial effort, but the movie’s first trailer went a long way towards both giving an idea and furthering the mystery.

A divorced father looking for new love, a woman dealing with a relationship that turned from romance to routine years ago, a charismatic drug dealer who spies something new in his web, half of the most fascinating cinematic relationship of the year, and a slave & her brutal owner — 2013 featured numerous memorable performances but these are just a few of the ones that will stand the test of time.
It was difficult to whittle down to my 20 favorite. Sorry to those who missed the cut. These are simply my 20 favorites today (and come back tomorrow the accompanying lead performances, and Monday for the best films of the year.)

Is baby number four on the way? The 46-year-old A-list actress has been hiding her tummy in midsection-concealing ensembles for about a month, but on Dec. 8 she offered a peek of an undeniable bump underneath an oversized cardigan.
Julia Roberts and her husband Danny Moder are the proud parents to three young kids: 9-year-old twins Hazel and Phinnaeus, and 6-year-old Henry, so it wouldn’t be so unusual for her to have another little one, even though she is now over 40.

She's made a career on her songs of heartbreak, but British singing sensation Adele appears to be head-over-heels in the latest pictures with her longtime boyfriend and baby daddy Simon Konecki. The couple rarely make public appearances together, but on Dec. 6, they were all over each other at a secret Lady Gaga concert hosted by Belvedere Vodka in London. Adele wore minimal makeup but a giant grin as her beau planted numerous kisses on her cheek. The concert was a private, star-studded affair with Emma Watson, Jessie [...] »
Date night! Adele and her love, Simon Konecki, took a night off from baby duty to watch fellow musical diva Lady Gaga perform an intimate set at Annabel's, a members-only club, in London Friday night. Dressed in all black with her hair tied up in a bun, the "Someone Like You" singer, 25, snuck into the Belvedere Vodka-sponsored event through a back door with Konecki, 39, a source tells People.
