5 Most Anticipated 2013 Summer Blockbusters

Guest Writer: Tan Yuan Qing

The countdown begins... to the 5 most anticipated movies of summer 2013. 

#5 ELYSIUM (Dir. Neil Blomkamp)

US Release: 9 August
After giving audiences an unforgettable sci-fi thrill ride with the low budget District 9 (2009), writer-director Blomkamp is back with Elysium, exciting fans with the prospect of another sci-fi flick that has both solid action and story - somewhat a rare combo nowadays. And with triple the budget of District 9, one can only imagine how good this will be...

#4 IRON MAN 3 (Dir. Shane Black)

Singapore Release: 25 April
From the 'Avengers' team, Iron Man probably has the most fans and we can understand why. He is cool in everything he does, from the way he speaks to the way he uses his high-tech gadgets. But what is attracting everyone to this third installment is that we are seeing Iron Man at his lowest point (well that is judging by the trailers so far), and facing his strongest enemy yet – The Mandarin (played by a deliciously evil Ben Kingsley). We have never felt this worried for Iron Man for a long time.

#3 PACIFIC RIM (Dir. Guillermo del Toro)

Singapore release: 11 July
If you are hoping for a Transformers vs. Godzilla movie to happen one day, your dream might just come true... soon. And with visionary director Guillermo del Toro at the helm, this is a blockbuster not to be missed by any movie fan. Giant robots battling with giant monsters, what more do you want?


Singapore release: 16 May
Director J.J Abrams is now a force to be reckoned with. He is now trusted to make blockbusters that are visually and emotionally impactful, something that Hollywood is always struggling to achieve. I fully support his lens flares, and I fully trust that Star Trek Into Darkness will either be greater than or on par with his first installment. Old and new fans of Star Trek will come together to watch this, and they are unlikely to be let down.

#1 MAN OF STEEL (Dir. Zack Snyder)

Singapore release: 13 June
He is the ultimate superhero; his powers are the strongest of them all. We all know what he can do and what he is afraid of. That's why we need a change. What if Man of Steel gets The Dark Knight treatment? With Christopher Nolan producing and Zack Snyder directing, we are about to see a complete revamp of Superman. Combining the realistic world of Nolan with the creative style of Snyder, I can only wonder what the outcome will be. Will we see a more emotional but less powerful Superman?


i am really looking forward to these movies!! I hope they all will do a good job!
