With hits like the first ever billion dollar making, James Bond film, Skyfall & The Amazing Spider-Man, Sony became the top grossing studio of 2012. So does the studio have what it takes to repeat it all in 2013? The first potential moneymaker for the studio will be the horror film, Evil Dead, on April 12th. A remake of Sam Raimi's 1981 horror classic finds five friends, in a remote cabin, who unwittingly summon a demon. Newcomer Federico Alvarez takes over directing duties from Raimi, who is on board as producer along with original star Bruce Campbell. On June 7th, we'll see Will Smith and son Jaden paired once again in the sci-fi film, After Earth, from director M. Night Shamalan about a teenager and his father who crash land on Earth, a thousand years after a cataclysmic event forced humanity to leave the planet that is now overrun by man eating animals and an unstoppable alien creature. The end of the world is played out to comedic effect on June 14th with This is the End starring James Franco, Jonah Hill, Seth Rogen and Emma Watson among others. The stars play versions of themselves trying to survive as Los Angeles is devastated by strange and catastrophic events. Channing Tatum plays a DC police officer trying to save the president, played by Jamie Foxx in the Die Hard meets Air Force One action thriller White House Down on June 28th. Adam Sandler tries to redeem himself after the dismal Jack and Jill and That's My Boy, with Grown Ups 2 on July 12th. Kevin James, Chris Rock and David Spade return also to learn lessons from their kids on the last day of school. Another sequel hits theaters on July 31st and this time it's The Smurfs. Smurfette is kidnapped by Gargamel and it's up to Papa Smurf and his gang to get her back. After all the sequels, you may be ready for something more original. August 9th we get director Neill Blomkamp's District 9 follow up, Elysium starring Matt Damon, Jodie Foster and Sharlto Copley. In 2159, the wealthy of the world escape a dying Earth by living on a space station and will stop at nothing to keep their luxurious lifestyle intact. If the end of The Twilight Saga has got you down, then The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones may be just what you need. Opening August 23rd, the film is based on the best-selling book series and stars Lily Collins as an ordinary teenager who discovers she is the descendant of half-angel warriors who protect the world from demons, vampires, werewolves and other deadly creatures. All you aspiring break dancers will want to check out Battle of the Year on September 13th. The film follows a group of American dancers trying to win the "Olympics of break dancing" trophy back to the States. And no, it's not a comedy. What is a comedy is the sequel to Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs which hits theaters on September 27th with Bill Hader and Anna Faris once again lending their voices. Tom Hanks stars in Captain Phillips on October 11th. The film tells the true story of the 2009 hijacking of an American cargo ship hijacked by Somali pirates. Carrie gets bumped from its original March release to a Halloween friendly October 18th. Based on the Stephen King novel, the film stars Chloe Moretz as a shy outcast with telekinetic powers and her abusive, deeply religious mother, played by Julianne Moore. And finally, George Clooney writes, directs, produces and stars in The Monuments Men in theaters December 20th. The film tells the true story of a World War II platoon tasked with rescuing artistic masterpieces from Nazi's before they are destroyed. Sony definitely has something for everyone in 2013, but which films are you most excited to see? Let us know below or over on Twitter @ClevverMovies. I'm Erin White, thanks for watching!
