Empire's Giant 2013 Movie Preview
185 films of next year profiled and explained


Assuming the Mayan-inspired doomsayers are wrong, 2013 is going to be a heck of a year for film. We have huge new releases all year long, from the high notes of Les Misérables to the high explosives of Iron Man 3 to the high drama of Zero Dark Thirty. So that you can prepare yourself for it all and stand ready to explain what's coming to friends down the pub, we've prepared a massively thorough, hugely sweeping preview of the films out next year that will be hitting your cinemas. Broken down thematically, here's what's coming...
