As we've outlined in our Most Anticipated Films Of 2013 Part 1 & Part 2, there are a lot of potentially great films on the horizon across the next twelve months. However, there are also a handful of movies that we've already seen that will be heading to screens in the new year, that we already know will be worth tracking down. And one to mark on your calendar is "Ginger & Rosa."

Okay superhero movie fans, it’s time to let out a collective sob. Hayley Atwell will apparently not be reprising the role of Peggy Carter in “Captain America: The Winter Soldier.” Of course, that shouldn’t be a total shock to fans who will be well aware that Cap’s sequel will be set post-“The Avengers” in the present day, but given that the 'Winter Soldier' storyline will surely demand some flashbacks in order to be told effectively, then we were also hoping that Atwell’s Carter might pop up in those.

What do you get when you pair Bruce Willis with an anonymous Euro villain who has lots of weapons and nuclear thingies at this disposal? Well, you get the five-quel to a series that is beginning to show its age and lack of original ideas. Yep, it's "A Good Day To Die Hard."

Your excitement regarding this piece of movie news may just depend on which film you thought we were referring to in the headline. So sorry Stephenie Meyer fans, but Andrew Niccol’s adaptation won’t be getting a sequel just over a year after the first film’s release (although we’d be lying if we said we didn’t smell sequels at some point in the future). No, instead we’ll be delighting fans of Bong Joon-ho’s “The Host,” who have been patiently waiting for a sequel to the cult monster movie since it started gaining attention around 2006/7.

As we continue to get settled into 2013, we've been taking a look at what the cinematic world will have to offer this year, with our 100 Most Anticipated Films kicking off with part 1 yesterday. And yet, for the hundreds of movies that we already know are making their way to the big screen over the next twelve months, there are just as many flying under the radar that will quietly emerge and hope to grab your attention as well. And one of them is the psychological thriller "7E."

And you thought the ruckus around "Django Unchained" was bad. With Kathryn Bigelow's "Zero Dark Thirty" slated to go into wide release in just over a week, it appears the controversy over its presentation of "enhanced interrogation" (ie. torture) as one of the many methods used in shaking out information that led to the killing of Osama Bin Laden, is far from over. Both Bigelow and screenwriter Mark Boal have stressed in official statements that, "The film shows that no single method was necessarily responsible for solving the manhunt, nor can any single scene taken in isolation fairly capture the totality of efforts the film dramatizes." But since politics are involved, that will not suffice.

Riding high on a wave of buzz and hype, early last year Sony Pictures Classics not only picked up the distribution rights for Gareth Evans’ “The Raid” but also planned for the future by retitling the action film “The Raid: Redemption” for North American audiences to pave the way for a planned trilogy, preemptively buying the rights to the first sequel "Berandal." Yesterday the filmmaker took to Twitter (via MTV) to tease more details about what's in store for the followup, and it looks like our hero Rama (Iko Uwais) won't have much time to rest.

Amidst the ongoing flurry of debate over Quentin Tarantino's spaghetti western “Django Unchained,” one can at least declare safely that the hints to the final product on screen were always present. The screenplay -- leaked over a year ago and marked up in the director's handwriting -- contained the full vision of what Tarantino hoped to achieve, and now with disputes over the film's ruthless depiction of violence, the script and the director's words are here to clear the air.

Michel Gondry fans are going to have a lot to be thankful for in 2013. Not only is his lo-fi indie, "The We And The I," slated to hit theaters stateside, but his fantastical "Mood Indigo" with Audrey Tautou and Romain Duris is also on the way. But before we get to either of those, Gondry has gone ahead and dropped a holiday treat for fans.

We hope you've had a chance by now to look at Part 1 of our 100 Most Anticipated Films Of 2013, but even if you haven't, you'd be right in guessing that Bong Joon-ho's English language debut "Snowpiercer" would be on the list. The latest from the director of "The Host" and "Mother" brings together an all-star cast for a snowbound thriller, and with The Weinstein Company putting it in their pocket in November and aiming for a summer release, we're likely to see much more from the movie soon.
