2012 was an unusually fine year at the movies. So 2013 needs to bring it big time if it hopes to come anywhere close.
Fortunately, the year looks big. Really big.
We're talking Katniss, Spock, Iron Man, Wolverine, Superman, Lone Ranger, Thor, Bilbo Baggins, One Direction, Hangover dudes, Ron Burgundy, giant robots versus giant monsters, and Channing Tatum protecting the President big.
But in Hollywood, bigger isn't always better. Let's hope for the best from the following 23 highlights and everything else due out in 2013.
