What is on in
the cinema for 2013?
WELL, after an interesting
time at the flicks last year, movie fans will be very pleased to
know that there are many fantastic releases to be seen for 2013!
Sadly, just like in 2012, 2013 will once again be filled with
prequels, sequels, and so be aware!!! Yet that is not all bad news!
For example the much-anticipated prequel to 2001’s 'Monsters
Inc.' is to be released. So is the 2nd instalment in
'The Hunger Games', along with 'Star Trek Into
Darkness', plus a few British TV spin off films, like The 'Sweeney'. Already we have had the first part of
'Hobbit' and the second instalment is to come later this
year, so lots and lots of block busters; but what films will be a
hit and who will fall on to the cutting room floor, never to be seen
again, are yet to be known. One thing is for certain, it will be an
expensive year, for family trips to the cinema! This is a quick
