Anchorman: The Legend Continues

Director: Adam McKay
Cast: Will Ferrell, Christina Applegate, Kristen Wiig, Paul Rudd
Genre: Comedy

Plot: It may have been almost a decade since Ron Burgundy and co last hit our screens, but we have a feeling a lot won't have changed.

All we know about the story is that it's going to revolve around the debut of rolling news.

US Release Date: December 2013

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

Director: Ben Stiller
Cast: Ben Stiller, Kristen Wiig
Genre: Sci-Fi Drama

Plot: Colour us intrigued - the first trailer for Ben Stiller's forthcoming adaptation of the classic 1947 drama looked as beautiful as it was mind-bending.

The Human Centipede 3 (Final Sequence)

Director: Tom Six
Cast: Eric Roberts
Genre: Body Horror

Plot: Aiming to deliver on the stomach-churning set-up from the first two movies, Tom Six returns to his weird and bonkers body horror universe in which people are stitched mouth-to-anus because… erm… we're still not entirely sure of the motivation. Anyway, this time around Oscar-nominated actor Eric Roberts is inexplicably on-board for a tale that is said to include a 500 person Human Centipede. Delightful.

UK Release Date: TBC 2013
US Release Date: TBC 2013


Director: Lars von Trier
Cast: Charlotte Gainsbourg, Stellan Skarsgard, Shia LaBeouf, Jamie Bell
Genre: Erotic Drama

Plot: Never one to shy away from controversial or shocking subject matter, von Trier returns with a sure-to-be-shocking drama focused on a self-diagnosed nymphomaniac's retelling of her erotic experiences. The really surprising angle though? LaBeouf said that there was a disclaimer at the top of the script saying every actor had to basically have sex for real on camera.

UK Release Date: TBC 2013
US Release Date: TBC 2013

The Green Inferno

Director: Eli Roth
Cast: Ariel Levy, Lorenza Izzo, Sky Ferreira
Genre: Horror

Plot: Trust Eli Roth to take a culturally enlightening, life-enriching experience and turn it into something utterly, pant-soilingly terrifying.

Only when their plane crashes, it turns out the tribe are more interested in having them FOR dinner.

UK Release Date: TBC 2013
US Release Date: TBC 2013

The Wolf of Wall Street

Director: Martin Scorsese
Cast: Leonardo DiCaprio, Matthew McConaughey, Jonah Hill
Genre: Crime Drama

Plot: If the trailer's anything to go by, The Wolf of Wall Street is going to be a hell of a lot of fun - with Leo on prime screen-snaffling form as a corrupt, Gordon Gecko-ish trader, and a host of debauched greed-inspired setpieces (midget throwing, for one), it could be the most fun financial drama ever made.

UK Release Date: 17 January 2014
US Release Date: 15 November 2013

Grudge Match

Director: Peter Segal
Cast: Sylvester Stallone, Robert De Niro, Kim Basinger

US Release Date: 25 December 2013

The LEGO Movie

Directors: Phil Lord & Chris Miller
Cast: Chris Pratt, Will Ferrell, Elizabeth Banks, Morgan Freeman, Will Arnett, Alison Brie
Genre: CGI Comedy Adventure

Plot: You wouldn't think that LEGO has the biggest narrative propellent behind justifying a multi-million dollar adventure movie, but one look at the trailer has eased all our worries. Directed by the animation geniuses behind the sublimely ridiculous Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, and starring an all-star cast, the plot finds one LEGO figure inexplicably destined for greatness. Expect cameos galore.

UK Release Date: 14 February 2014
US Release Date: 7 February 2014

Robocop (2014)

Director: Jose Pahilha
Cast: Joel Kinnaman, Samuel L. Jackson, Gary Oldman
Genre: Sci-Fi Action

Plot: Remaking one of the 80s most seminal action flicks is going to be a tough job, but we're keen to see the results.

UK Release Date: 7 February 2014
US Release Date: 7 February 2014

Genre: Action adventure
Plot: Resident Evil director Paul W.S. Anderson gives history a thrashing as he stages a blockbuster re-enactment of the destruction of Pompeii. Game Of Thrones totty Kit Harington is on hand as a freed gladiator who gets caught in the carnage – and has something of a chaste love affair with Emily Browning’s noblewoman. Sounds hot…
