If you’re like us here at ScienceFiciton.com, then you’re already anticipating the big blockbuster films that will be coming out in 2013. We’ve covered a lot of them but to help you plan out your year, we’ve compiled a list of what movies will be out each month.

2013 will be filled with sequels, reboots, book adaptations and revisionist fairy tales. It’s a year that brings Will Smith, Tom Cruise and Matt Damon back to the genre and the return of both Guillermo del Toro and M. Night Shyamalan back to the director’s seat. It also brings back the re-release of a few old favorites: ‘Jurassic Park’, ‘Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones’, and ‘Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith’.

Of course, this list may change as the year progresses as studios may decide to push a release date back for various reasons like they did with ‘Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters’ and ‘G.I. Joe: Retaliation’ last year, but as for now, this is what the studios have planned.

Which movies will be successful? Which will bomb?  We won’t know until they reach the theaters but this list will at least let you know when a sci-fi/horror/fantasy movie will be released. Which ones do you plan on seeing?
