With the Academy Awards wrapping up last night, we here at EveryGuyed think it’s time to look forward to the films of 2013. Granted, we haven’t seen any of these films, but that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy the trailers and look forward to their potential greatness. Think we missed a major contender in our list? Let us know in the comments section below.
The Great Gatsby
Baz Luhrmann brings F. Scott Fitzgerald’s parable of the American Dream gone sour to the big screen in a three-dimensional riot of costumes, color and drama. The cast’s fantastic, too: Leonardo DiCaprio stars as the bootlegger Jay Gatsby and Carey Mulligan as Daisy Buchanan, the stunning object of his affections. Sure, for those of us that spend our college years carrying a dog-eared copy of Fitzgerald’s masterpiece around campus, this film could disappoint, but it’s got the potential to be great.

A Most Wanted Man
Dutch photographer and filmmaker Anton Corbijn directs this adaptation of John le Carre’s breakaway 2008 novel of the same name. The film tells the tale of a tortured immigrant who shows up in Hamburg’s Islamic community seeking his father’s ill-gotten fortunes. Heavily influenced by the so-called “Bush Era” and the “War on Terror”, the film sports an all star cast, including: Robin Wright, Rachel McAdams and Philip Seymour Hoffman.
In Theaters: Late 2013
Written and directed by the always controversial Lars Von Trier, Nymphomaniac centers around Joe (played by Charlotte Gainsbourg), a self-proclaimed nymphomaniac who is found beaten in an alley by Seligman (Stellan Skarsgård). Seligman takes her home to take care of her when she begins recounting the story of her life. Though not everyone is a fan of Von Trier’s penchant for the disturbing, this film are undeniably gripping and deftly executed.
In Theaters: December 2013
Anchorman: The Legend Continues
Okay, so this one isn’t quite in the same vein as the films mentioned above, but trust us when we say after you see a film like Von Trier’s Nymphomaniac, you’re going to need a good laugh. The follow up to the perpetually-quotable Anchorman, ‘The Legend Continues’, starring Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, David Koechner and Luke Wilson is sure to be a comedy classic. “This time there will be sub-machine guns and boobies”. Whammie!

Okay, so not many people know much about this movie, very little has leaked from the set. But what we know makes us think this is going to be a great film: George Clooney, A 17 minute long single-shot opening and apparently a movie edited to appear as though it is one continuous take.
