13 Must-See Movies of 2013!

It’s good to look at a new year as a fresh beginning — time to make changes in your life, set goals, better yourself. We think that’s great and all, but for us a new year means new movies to look forward to!

2013 is shaping up as the year of the sci-fi flick. From zombies to space to comic book heroes, fan boys have plenty to be excited about this year … along with some non-nerd movies to keep you entertained.

1. “Oz: The Great and Powerful,” March 8, 2013 — In this prequel to the legendary “The Wizard of Oz,” James Franco stars as magician Oscar Diggs, who will one day end up as “the man behind that curtain.” He’s joined by Michelle Williams, Mila Kunis and Rachel Weisz as famous witches Glinda, Theodora and Evanora … and the visuals in the trailer alone blow us away.

2. “Evil Dead,” April 12, 2013 — Oh man. This remake of the 1981 Sam Raimi cult classic “The Evil Dead” looks seriously effed up … in the best way! Five friends hole themselves inside a remote cabin (never a good idea) and end up summoning demons from the nearby woods. Terrifying!

WARNING! The trailer below is a red band trailer, meaning it is FOR MATURE AUDIENCES ONLY.There is language and extremely graphic, violent imagery. If you have a weak stomach, don’t watch the end. Seriously.
