List of the best ensemble film performance of 2013, as ranked by movie critics and film lovers all over the world. Many films rest on the talent and charm of a single star in order to be successful. Casting a single star to hold up an entire film can be tough, but it’s much more difficult to find the right ensemble film. For an ensemble movie to work the entire cast needs to have chemistry with each other and work well in their respective roles. If just one piece of the puzzle doesn’t fit, the entire movie is thrown off. That’s why it’s so impressive when an ensemble works well.

2013 was filled with amazing ensemble casts that made their films great. Some of the ensemble casts resumed their roles in sequels, with additional cast members, such as in Fast and the Furious 6 and The Hangover Part 3. A few of this year’s great ensemble casts jumped into famous character roles for the first time and played them perfectly, like in The Great Gatsby,Much Ado About Nothing, and Man of Steel.

What are the best ensemble film performances of 2013?Whether they were playing familiar roles or a fresh roster of characters, the ensemble casts on this list were perfection.
