I am looking forward to the new year and the amazing film line up ahead. Obviously i can't mention every film due of in the next year but will mention some that i personally am looking forward to.

Iron Man 3 (26th April 2013)
Can not wait to see this!! Getting excited just mentioning it. But i love Iron man and i love Robert Downey Jr i think he is amazing and the trailer for the next installment looks spectacular. Not only is it a sequel to the Iron Man films but it will also (fingers crossed) start setting up the story line for the next Avengers film. Gwyneth Paltrow and Don Cheadle are back and joining them is Ben Kingsley as our villain. With a new director at the helm no doubt it will be a success.

Star Trek Into Darkness (17th May 2013)
I loved the first Star Trek film and can't wait to see Kirk and Spock reunited on the big screen again. Not a lot of the story line has been given away but a lot of speculation that the character that Benedict Cumberbatch's character is indeed going to be Khan but director J.J Abrams is keeping his secrets for now but that's okay with me because i don't want to go into the cinema and know everything that is about to happen before me, I want to be surprised! any way back reprising their roles are Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto as Kirk and Spock as well as Simon Pegg, Zoe Saldana and Anton Yelchin.
Man of Steel (14th June 2013)
I am still uncertain about yet another a Superman remake, but the trailer looks amazing so i am holding out judgment till i actually see the film. I have high hopes for this film though with combined talents of Zack Snyder and Christopher Nolan how can it not be great. Henry Cavill is taking on the role of Clark Kent/ Superman and so far so good, the trailer looks like the story is going to take a darker twist than that of the previous films and thankfully there is no Lex Luther but instead we have General Zod as our bad guy. I can't wait to see it! Fingers Crossed it lives up to the very high expectations.

Oz The Great and Powerful 
Who doesn't like the Wizard of Oz, i loved the original and happy to see that there is going to be a modern version made, i know the story is going to be different but its still based in the land of the yellow brick road. James Franco is playing a stage wizard that ends up in Oz and has to help battle the evil witch like the prophecy says, the film looks good though and if the story line falls flat, which i doubt, but the animations will undoubtedly be fantastic.

Despicable Me 2
Seriously who didn't like Despicable Me the first time around. The little minions were hilarious and the relationship between Gru and the girls was so cute. So good news all round that there is going to be a sequel,   so excited just thinking about absolutism adored the first one, one of the best animated films i have seen in the last few years. I can't forget the trailer which is brilliant in its own right, so funny can not wait to go and see.

Kick Ass 2
Kick Ass was great! Kick Ass 2 better be amazing to beat how brilliant the first one was. There hasn't been a trailer released yet as it is still 11 months away from being released but i am still excited as to see how the story will evolve from the first film and if all our favourite characters are going to return, Hit Girl, Red Mist, Kick Ass and there are rumors going around that Big Daddy will be coming back from the dead, yet to be confirmed. Most excitingly Jim Carey has joined the cast as Colonel Stars and Stripes, i love Jim Carey he is such a brilliant actor so can't wait to see what type of character he will be playing. The film is not due out till November so will be anxiously waiting to see what will be released.

Thor The Dark World
Even though its still practically a year away i am still exciting to see Thor 2, the first one was fab and can't wait to see what the next installment has for us especially after the conclusion to The Avengers. Chris Hemsworth is back as our favourite Norse god as well as Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Kat Dennings and Idris Elba and former Doctor Who, Christopher Eccelston take his turn as our villain Malekith. Hopefully Thor will be reunited with his true love Jane Foster after his only way of getting back to her was destroyed at the end of the first film, though he did manage to get back to earth in time for the Avengers so all hope isn't lost. Along with Iron Man 3 i am hoping that some snippets of information about the second Avengers film will crop up and perhaps maybe another Avenger popping in. Any way there still isn't a trailer yet but the first teaser can't be to far away.

2013 is going to be a great year for films and this list doesn't even scratch the surface of all the films i want to see in the coming year but just a few that i will be going to see.
