Today I have quite the double-bill. It begins at noon with a screening of Noah Baumbach's much-talked-about Frances Ha, which premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last year and, along with playing the Seattle Film Festival, will hit limited theaters on May 17. Then, this evening my Summer Movie Season begins with Iron Man 3, which half the world has already seen to the tune of $195.3 million and reviews have been through the roof. My 2013 Summer Movie Season continues tomorrow night with Star Trek Into Darkness (5/17) and next Monday I'll be screening The Great Gatsby (5/10). I've already seen Before Midnight (5/24) and while in Cannes I'll see The Bling Ring (7/14), Only God Forgives (7/19), Ain't Them Bodies Saints (8/16) and Fruitvale Station (7/26). I mention all of this because I was considering writing up a Top Ten Most Anticipated 2013 Summer Movies feature, or even a Too 15, but when I will have seen nearly my »

Warner Bros. has released their 2013 Summer preview, which showcases their slate of movies from May to August. The studio's new releases include The Great Gatsby, The Hangover Part III, Man of Steel, Pacific Rim, The Conjuring, 300: Rise of an Empire, We're the Millers and Getaway.
The Great Gatsby - May 10th
The Great Gatsby follows Fitzgerald-like, would-be writer Nick Carraway (Tobey Maguire) as he leaves the Midwest and comes to New York City in the spring of 1922, an era of loosening morals, glittering jazz, bootleg kings, and sky-rocketing stocks. Chasing his own American Dream, Nick lands next door to a mysterious, party-giving millionaire, Jay Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio), and across the bay from his cousin, Daisy (Carey Mulligan), and her philandering, blue-blooded husband, Tom Buchanan (Joel Edgerton). It is thus that Nick is drawn into the captivating world of the super rich, their illusions, loves and deceits. As Nick bears witness, »
Photo: Warner Bros. Warner Bros. is the first studio to lift the lid on their crop of 2013 summer films beginning with The Great Gatsby, which will not only hit theaters on May 10, but will also open the 2013 Cannes Film Festival. From there films include Insidious director James Wan's new film The Conjuring, the Selena Gomez and Ethan Hawke thriller Getaway, the return of the Wolf Pack in The Hangover Part III, Zack Snyder's take on the Superman origin produced by Christopher Nolan Man of Steel, Guillermo del Toro's monster movie Pacific Rim and the Jennifer Aniston-led comedy We're the Millers. Finally, and the only movie that does not yet have any accompanying images for you to check out, 300: Rise of an Empire, which appears to still be on track for an August 2 release, but we'll see.

Gomez, Hudgens, Franco, guns and bikinis: Outstanding domestic debut Harmony Korine's crime flick Spring Breakers currently boasts the year's highest per-theater average. That's no small feat. As per final Us/Canada weekend box-office numbers published on the web site Box Office Mojo, this past weekend (March 15-17) the film raked in $263,002 at three locations (two in New York City, one in Los Angeles). That's down slightly from the studio's $270,000 estimate released on Sunday, but still enough to average a fantastic $87,667 per venue. (Pictured above: Gomez [scroll down for more on Gomez's box-office performance to date; pictured below: bad girls in bikinis in court.) One of the highest opening weekend per-theater averages ever Spring Breakers was down one spot on Box Office Mojo's post-1982 chart of opening-weekend per-theater averages. At #23, the movie is sandwiched between two Academy Award winners: Tom Hooper / Colin Firth's The King's Speech with $88,863 and Steven Spielberg / Daniel Day-Lewis' Lincoln with $85,846. Once inflation is factored in, Spring Breakers drops to the 52nd spot (down nine spots from yesterday's estimates), landing between Daniel Myrick »

Horror typically equates “coming of age” with survival – prevailing over a would-be killer – but in Stoker, director Park Chan-wook turns that struggle, and transformation, into an origin story.
The tale of a young woman whose 18th birthday unleashes a mysteriously seductive sort of hell on a grieving family, Park deconstructs nature, nurture and everything in between. A visual feast whose psychosexual boilerplate proves intriguingly complex, Stoker is a born classic – a brilliant English-language crossover effort for Park that doubles as a genre-transcending triumph.
Mia Wasikowska (Alice in Wonderland) plays India Stoker, a young woman whose 18th birthday coincides with the death of her father Richard (Dermot Mulroney). Mourning the loss quietly as her mother Evelyn (Nicole Kidman) attempts to forge the sort of connection India once shared with her father, their efforts to move on are interrupted by the arrival of Charlie (Matthew Goode), Richard’s long-absent brother. Charlie agrees »

2012 was a nearly perfect year in cinema. Every month saw a new, interesting movie that captivated audiences, and brought plenty of money streaming into the box office. It was a year where top ten lists meant little to nothing, because there were at least twenty other films on any given list not accounted for. Will 2013 prove to be such a heavyweight? Or will it suffer in the shadow of its predecessor? Right now, there are 109 planned major releases that could be included on any best of 2013 list. We're whittling those down to the 13 most anticipated movies in the coming year, according to both our community here at Movieweb as well as past box office records. If anything can be said about 2013, its that some great movies are coming our way over the course of the next twelve months. The following list is in order by release date.
