Warner Bros. 2013 Movie Preview

Warner Bros. is the first studio to lift the lid on their crop of 2013 summer films beginning with The Great Gatsby, which will not only hit theaters on May 10, but will also open the 2013 Cannes Film Festival.

From there films include Insidious director James Wan's new film The Conjuring, the Selena Gomez and Ethan Hawke thriller Getaway, the return of the Wolf Pack in The Hangover Part III, Zack Snyder's take on the Superman origin produced by Christopher Nolan Man of Steel, Guillermo del Toro's monster movie Pacific Rim and the Jennifer Aniston-led comedy We're the Millers.

Finally, and the only movie that does not yet have any accompanying images for you to check out, 300: Rise of an Empire, which appears to still be on track for an August 2 release, but we'll see.

I have included a preview image and information on each film over the next couple pages. You can click on any of the links to browse more images in each gallery. Of the films listed there is at least one new image for The Great Gatsby, The Hangover Part III, Man of Steel, Getaway and The Conjuring as well as a new Coyote Tango poster for Pacific Rim. Enjoy!

Director: Baz Luhrmann
Writers: Screenplay by Baz Luhrmann & Craig Pearce
Cast: Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, Carey Mulligan, Joel Edgerton, Isla Fisher, Jason Clarke and Amitabh Bachchan

"The Great Gatsby" follows Fitzgerald-like, would-be writer Nick Carraway (Tobey Maguire) as he leaves the Midwest and comes to New York City in the spring of 1922, an era of loosening morals, glittering jazz, bootleg kings, and sky-rocketing stocks. Chasing his own American Dream, Nick lands next door to a mysterious, party-giving millionaire, Jay Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio), and across the bay from his cousin, Daisy (Carey Mulligan), and her philandering, blue-blooded husband, Tom Buchanan (Joel Edgerton). It is thus that Nick is drawn into the captivating world of the super rich, their illusions, loves and deceits. As Nick bears witness, within and without of the world he inhabits, he pens a tale of impossible love, incorruptible dreams and high-octane tragedy, and holds a mirror to our own modern times and struggles.

Director: Todd Phillips
Writers: Todd Phillips & Craig Mazin
Cast: Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms , Zach Galifianakis, Ken Jeong, Heather Graham, Jeffrey Tambor, Justin Bartha, John Goodman, Sasha Barrese, Gillian Vigman and Jamie Chung

"The Hangover Part III" is the third and final film in director Todd Phillips' record-shattering comedy franchise. This time, there's no wedding. No bachelor party. What could go wrong, right? But when the Wolfpack hits the road, all bets are off.

The next page includes Man of Steel, Pacific Rim and The Conjuring.

    I'm wondering if Pacific Rim will be a success.

    • adu

      I think it will be successfuly, and it will particularly appeal to the international audience. I see a at least a $400m global cume.

    Well, I'm interested in The Great Gatsby, Man of Steel and Pacific Rim from WB this summer and that's about it.

  • adu

    With that line-up and Hobbit 2 in the winter, WB impresses again remains the best blockbuster studio.

    A LOT I'm looking forward to in that list. James Wan has proven to be one of my favorite horror directors with Saw and Insidious, so consider me psyched for The Conjuring. From a major blockbuster perspective, Man of Steel tops my list of most anticipated this summer.

    I'm very much anticipating Man of Steel and The Great Gatsby. I'm wary of Gatsby, though, for I'm not a huge of Baz Luhrman's style. I love the book, an I'm hoping the movie turns out well.

    Pacific Rim will be this year's Battleship.

    I'm just going to give my opinion on all of these movies.
    The Great Gatsby- Looks good, will probably see it in theatres.

    The Hangover Part 3- Looks funny, but I'll probably just rent it.

    Man Of Steel- Now this one I kind of have mixed feelings about. I want it to be good but nothing that I've seen so far has really impressed me or really caught my interest. I'm sure I'll end up seeing it eventually, just maybe not in theatres.

    Pacific Rim- I am one of the few people that actually thinks that this movie looks awesome! I can't wait to see how it turns out!

    The Conjuring- I enjoyed Insidious and this movie looks really good and really scary too!

    300: Rise Of An Empire- Meh, I own the first 300 on DVD and I enjoy it when I'm in the right mood for it, but this just doesn't sound all that interesting. I'll wait for a trailer before I decide whether I want to see it or not though.

    We're The Millers- I'm really excited for this one. It sounds like it has a great concept for a comedy and it also has a great cast, so how couldn't you be excited for this?

    Getaway- I'm not interested at all. It sounds like it will be a very generic action movie and I don't like Selena Gomez at all, so count me out.

    So overall, it sounds like Warner Bros. is going to have a pretty good summer for movies IMO.
