    2013's Big Movies: From March to May 

    They always say “this is the year of sequels,” but 2013 may top them all when you look at the number of blockbusters this year that are sequels or spinoffs.

    While the summer months like June or July don’t have your typical big blockblusters, there are plenty of big movies with big stars and big directors: a Roland Emmerich film, a new Superman movie, a new Iron Man movie, and the return (hopefully to form) of Hugh Jackman as Wolverine with op director James Mangold. We even have a movie from Michael Bay that is low budget and has nothing to do with big giant robots, Neil Blomkamp’s first movie since District 9, to JJ Abrams directing what will be one of the biggest movies of the year. Here’s Part 1 of the rundown of big movies in 2013, from March to May:


    GI Joe Retaliation (March 29th)

    Director: John Chu

    Cast: Channing Tatum, Bruce Willis, Dwayne Johnson, Ray Stevenson, Adrianne Palicki, Ray Park, Jonathan Pryce

    While originally a summer 2012 movie, a set of factors got this movie delayed to what will now be end of March. Not exactly something I’ll see in theatres, but it surely will do well.


    Oblivion (April 12th)

    Director: Joseph Kosinski

    Cast: Tom Cruise, Olga Kurylenk, Andrea Riseborough, Nikolaj Coster Waldau, Melissa Leo, Morgan Freeman

    Director Joseph Kosinki had his directorial debut in 2010 with Tron Legacy and returns this April with Oblivion. While Tron Legacy has its imperfections, I remain a big fan of it, especially of its visual style, which has not been lost based on this preview, which has me excited to see Kosinki’s new movie lead by Tom Cruise this April.


    Pain and Gain (April 26th)

    Director: Michael Bay

    Cast: Dwayne Johnson, Mark Wahlber, Tony Shalhoub, Anthony Mackie

    A Michael Bay film that doesn’t at first glance look like a Michael Bay film makes you scratch your head. Bay apparently has been wanting to do this low-brow project for some time. And it looks like he may just pull of alittle successful hit with it. Savor it now before he returns to the world of gigantic robots as he brings and directs Transformers 4 to the screen in 2015.


    Iron Man 3 (May 3rd)

    Director: Shane Black

    Cast: Robert Downey Jr, Don Cheadle, Ben Kingsley, Gwyneth Paltrow, Ashley Hamilton, James Badge Dale, Paul Bettany

    Iron Man 2 in general fell alittle short of expectation after the success of Iron Man. With great support in the interim by 2012’s The Avengers, but most importantly IM3 having a strong cast, a decent director, and more time for the script and production, Iron Man 3 will hopefully what we want it to be and bring back the fun and adventure of the original. The new trailer is pretty sweet.


    The Great Gatsby (May 10th)

    Director: Baz Luhrmann

    Cast: Leonardo DiCaprio Tobey Maguire, Carey Mulligan, Isla Fisher

    Acclaimed director Baz Luhrmann (Romeo + Juliet; Moulin Rouge) has brought F Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby to the big screen. While I’m a not a big fan of his work, I certainly appreciate it and the high caliber visuals and cast he has going should make this a good one in May which is filled with some pretty big movies such as Iron Man 3 and Star Trek.


    Star Trek Into Darkness (May 17th)

    Director: JJ Abrams

    Cast: Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, Zoe Saldana, Anton Yelchin, Simon Pegg, Benedict Cumberbatch, Bruce Greenwood

    JJ Abrams brought new life into one of the most famous media franchises created with a Star Trek reboot that was not only for hardcore fans but the everyday person, making an action adventure that was big on characters and not just ships in space. Star Trek Into Darkness is looking like the “The Dark Knight” or “Wrath of Kahn” for this new Star Trek trilogy. What is expected to be one of the biggest movies of the year is looking pretty good based on the previews.


    Fast and Furious 6 (May 24th)

    Director: Justin Lin

    Cast: Vin Diesel,Paul Walker, Dwayne Johnson, Gina Carano, Luke Evans, Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson

    I think I’ve only seen the first one. I think it is safe to say no one ever expected a sixth, but the Fast and Furious is very much alive, with the last few movies doing very well financially domestically and abroad. Director Justin Lin, who directed the fifth, this new sixth installment, has already confirmed along with Vin Diesel, that a seventh is already set for 2015.


    The Hangover Part III (May 24th)

    Director: Todd Phillips

    Cast: Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis, Zach Galifianakis, Ed Helms, Mike Tyson, Ken Jeong, Mike Epps, Heather Graham, John Goodman, Jamie Chung

    Yeah, there’s one more. The sequel was terrible, but of course a huge hit at the box office given the first one. This third will undoubtedly turn a very nice profit. Yeah, that means there could even be a fourth. It’s up to you people, it’s up to you.

    Come June and July, the summer rolls on with After Earth, Man of Steel, Monster’s University, Kick-Ass 2, White House Down, Despicable Me 2, Pacific Rim, and The Wolverine.

    New trailer for Marvel’s Iron Man 3 | The Avengers Phase II Begins 


    The new trailer for Marvel’s Iron Man 3 is out kicking off The Avengers Phase II: Iron Man 3, Thor: The Dark World (Fall 2013), Captain America: The Winter Soldier (Spring 2014), and finally The Avengers 2 out May 2015.

    For now, poor Tony (Robert Downey Jr) seems to be suffering from PTSD since the Avengers assembled. In the works is his new armor that he can summon at will. And finally Tony gets to face off against his arch nemesis, The Mandarin (Ben Kingsley who seems to be more middle eastern than straight out Asian based on this preview). Guy Pearce plays a new Justin Hammer like secondary villain, and you can generally count on Guy Pearce giving a good performance so between him and Gandhi taking on Tony, could be good.

    The preview as Marvel has said 100 times now, shows the series trying to get back to the core. Iron Man 2 was immediately put into production and was essentially made in a year while Iron Man took two and Iron Man 3 has taken about a year and a half.

    Iron Man 3 opens in the U.S. May 3, 2013 and also stars Don Cheadle, Gwyneth Paltrow, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, and Jon Favreau.

      Has anyone else noticed that the Mandarin (Ben Kingsley) has a tattoo on his neck that looks an awful lot like the Captain America shield and symbol?

      this cracked iron man mask looks a lot like bruce’s smashed cowl.

    • paulywalnuts 4:17 am on October 31, 2012 Permalink

      By Bruce, you must mean Bruce Banner, right? I mean, what other Bruce’s are there?

    • winklevi twins 3:15 am on November 7, 2012 Permalink

      You kidding right? Bruce, Bruce Wayne. Bruce Wayne eccentric Billionaire. Let’s not stand on ceremony here, Bruce Wayne.

    Marvel Releases New Images from Iron Man 3 Trailer 

    Marvel this morning released six images from the bew Iron Man 3 trailer which will debut tonight at midnight; will get the trailer up as soon as it goes online!

    • winklevi twins 11:36 am on October 23, 2012 Permalink

      NEW TRAILER!!!!

      We ll see how this stands up to The Dark Knight Rises since this is a true fight of the trilogy conclusion. It seems like Iron Man is broken down in this one (I don’t know possibly get his back broken???….) and has to rebuild himself (I don’t know maybe.. like climb out of a prison???). We’ll see if Iron Man can be a legend. Can anybody be Iron Man? I would LOVE LOVE to see Pepper in that Iron Man suit. I said it here first.

    Iron Man 3 | Full Synopsis 

    Paramount has released the official synopsis for Iron Man 3.

    In this third installment, Iron Man faces off against the Mandarin, Iron Man’s arch enemy. Many working on the movie have said they wanted to bring it back to  basics, like the first movie where Stark is in the cave and must first truly rely on himself (which is not quite accurate: how dare they forget Yinsen aka the guy who  actually creates the device that saves his life and helps him build the original suit!).

    Below is the official synopsis. Iron Man 3 (in 3D) opens May 3rd, 2013. The movie stars Robert Downey Jr., Don Cheadle, Gwyneth Paltrow, Rebecca Hall, James Badge Dale, Jon Favreau, and Guy Pearce.


    Marvel Studios’ Iron Man 3 pits brash-but-brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/Iron Man against an enemy whose reach knows no bounds. When Stark finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy’s hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. This journey, at every turn, will test his mettle. With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him. As he fights his way back, Stark discovers the answer to the question that has secretly haunted him: does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man?

    Starring Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, Stephanie Szostak, James Badge Dale with Jon Favreau and Ben Kingsley, Iron Man 3 is directed by Shane Black from a screenplay by Drew Pearce and Shane Black and is based on Marvel’s iconic Super Hero Iron Man, who first appeared on the pages of Tales of Suspense (#39) in 1963 and had his solo comic book debut with The Invincible Iron Man (#1) in May of 1968.

    Iron Man 3 is presented by Marvel Studios in association with Paramount Pictures and DMG Entertainment. Marvel Studios’ President Kevin Feige is producing and Jon Favreau, Louis D’Esposito, Stephen Broussard, Victoria Alonso, Alan Fine, Charles Newirth, Stan Lee and Dan Mintz are executive producers. The film releases May 3, 2013, and is distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.

      And by Paramount, he really meant Marvel. Or Disney. Or someone besides Paramount, who aren’t really involved anymore, right?

    New Pics of Iron Man Suit from Iron Man 3 

    Below are some new pics (courtesy of Collider) of the new Iron Man suit for Iron Man 3 as well as the Iron Patriot look. Pauly, care to give a description/context for color? I am not familiar with the Iron Patriot armor and story line.

    Shane Black (Lethal Weapon 4, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang)’s Iron Man 3  stars Robert Downey Jr of course, Gwyneth Paltrow, as well as Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, Don Cheadle, Ben Kingsley and Jon Favreau.

    Iron Man 3 opens May 3rd, 2013.

      It’s been so long since I’ve been meaning to comment on this! Sorry folks!

      Iron Patriot has an interesting comic book backstory. Basically, the country thought Nick Fury was dead (long story) and Captain America took over SHIELD. Then the world thought Captain America was dead (longer story), so Iron Man took over SHIELD. Then Tony Stark pretty much lost it (longest story … may be the plot of Iron Man 3), and Norman Osborn (yeah, THAT guy from the Spiderman comics) took control of the Iron Man technology and created Iron Patriot, and ran SHIELD. Or what passed for SHIELD since some idiot allowed a sociopath to be in charge.

      I’m interested to see where this goes in the movie. A whole lotta stuff has to happen, and most of it is really dark, to re-introduce the comic book storyline. I’d be interested in seeing how they introduce Iron Patriot.

      Also, in the wake of the Avengers, isn’t it time Iron Man started fighting villains, not just robots?
