Darkmatters Top Film Picks 2013

Darkmatters Top Film Picks 2013

Matt Adcock - is looking forward to these...

Man of Steel

Zack ‘Watchmen’ Synder brings Superman back – and it looks like he might just have the film of the year on his hands. The trailer alone is better then Superman Returns… Superfans rejoice!

Now You See Me

This looks a lot of fun - pitting an elite FBI squad in a game of cat and mouse against "The Four Horsemen," a super-team of the world's greatest illusionists. "The Four Horsemen" pull off a series of daring heists against corrupt business leaders during their performances, showering the stolen profits on their audiences while staying one step ahead of the law.

A Good Day to Die Hard

McClane has to balance saving the world with father / son bonding time when a nuclear-weapons heist is uncovered by the CIA.

Iron Man 3

Shane ‘Lethal Weapon’ Black takes directing duties in what promises to be the darkest Iron Man tale yet…

Star Trek: Into Darkness

The Enterprise finds an unstoppable force of terror and so Captain Kirk boldly leads a manhunt to a war-zone – looks like a winning follow up to the effective reboot.

Pacific Rim

Mankind mechs-up to face down massive alien threat – sounds like a must see especially with Guillermo del Toro in the director’s chair.

The Wolverine

Jackman snicks his claws again – this time in Japan with added samurais!


No – not the film of the Elder Scroll game but actually an apocalyptic tale starring Tom Cruise…

World War Z

It’s the zombie threat writ large with Brad Pitt leading the human resistance…

The World’s End

Edgar ‘Shaun of the Dead’ Wright take the pub crawl to the next level as five friends must drink to save the world!?

Anchorman: The Legend Continues

All hail to the newsman… lots to live up to in this much anticipated sequel.

Mad Max: Fury Road

Tom Hardy takes over Gibson as the iconic dusty leather jacket and looks set to up the badass-ness (if that’s even possible).


Steven Spielberg is back with robot-tastic tale based on the book by Daniel H Wilson, about a robot-reliant world that’s threatened when one of its number becomes self-aware. Extra excitement as Drew ‘The Cabin In The Woods’ Goddard is doing the script.


Hoping this will work but am very worried that it might have suffered a ‘soul bypass’ like Total Recall did in the remaking…

300: Battle of Artemisia

This prequel to the ‘This Is Sparta’ epic could go either way, but hopes are high for it – even if it sounded cooler when called Xerxes.


Kick-Ass is back – for what just might be the Darkmatters film of 2013. Hit-Girl and Red Mist (who goes very very bad this time) are also back- this time directed by Jeff ‘Never Back Down’ Wadlow steps up and if it holds to the graphic novel plot – there will be as many people offended as those who love this!?

- What are you looking forward to in 2013 film wise?
