List of the most eagerly anticipated movies opening in 2013. Before the year gets going, it's interesting to take a look at what films people are most excited about seeing in the coming year. Will these movies live up to expectations? Will sleeper hits come to dominate people's thinking about 2013 films, with the most conventionally exciting titles eventually fading into the background? Voting on a list like this in advance can potentially answer these questions down the road. (Don't believe me? Check out the Most Anticipated Films of 2012 here!)

2013 will continue many of the trends set in the preceding years. Remakes remain a staple of big-budget Hollywood, with new takes on "Carrie," "Evil Dead" and "Robocop" coming to theaters. Expect a steady stream of sequels, threequels and beyond as well, with "Monsters Inc.", "Despicable Me," "Die Hard," "GI Joe," "Scary Movie," "Star Trek," "The Fast and the Furious," "The Hangover," "The Smurfs," "Grown Ups," "300," "Percy Jackson," "Sin City," "The Hunger Games," "RED," "The Hunger Games" and "The Hobbit" all getting follow-ups in 2013. Comic books will continue to be fodder for tentpole films, with sequels to "Thor" and "Iron Man" hitting theaters, as well as a new take on Hugh Jackman's Wolverine and a reimagining of Superman's origin in Zach Snyder's "Man of Steel."
