Coffee Talk #558: What 2013 Nerd Movies Will You See?
Welcome to Coffee Talk! Let’s start off the day by discussing whatever is on your (nerd chic) mind. Every morning I’ll kick off a discussion and I’m counting on you to participate in it. If you’re not feelin’ my topic, feel free to start a chat with your fellow readers and see where it takes you. Whether you’re talking about videogames, the Australian Open, Lance Armstrong’s upcoming confession, or Britney Spears being single again, Coffee Talk is the place to do it.
My friend Paul and I were talking about 2013 movie releases. After spouting out a bunch of movies we wanted to see, we were surprised by the number of nerd movies scheduled for release this year. Fans of comic books, sci-fi, and fantasy have so much to look forward to. Here are some of the films we were talking about:
- GI Joe: Retaliation
- Iron Man 3
- Man of Steel
- The Wolverine
- Thor: The Dark Worlds
- Star Trek: Into the Darkness
- Kick Ass 2
- The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug
That list doesn’t even count the mainstream movies that are also loved by geeks. Anchorman: The Legend Continues, The Hangover Part III, and Fast & Furious 6 are sure to do big numbers. I’m not saying that all of these movies are going to be great or even good, but I’m pleased that there are so many nerd-friendly blockbusters being released this year.
What 2013 movies are you anxious to see? Are there any big-budget films that you’re wary of? Are there any nerd movies you’re high on that I didn’t mention? Let’s plot out our 2013 moviegoing in the comments section (please)!
