It's time to say goodbye to 2012 and hello to 2013, which means 12 long months' worth of brand-new movies! We've narrowed down the new selections to the 11 we're most excited about to give you a little preview of what's to come. Check out our list and tell us which upcoming films you're jazzed about.
Anchorman: The Legend Continues
I never thought I'd actually see the day when Ron Burgundy came back into my life, but lo and behold: the
Anchorman sequel arrives on Dec. 20. I have so many questions. What has Ron been up to these past few years? Do he and Veronica Corningstone have any minireporters in their brood? And most importantly: does Brick still love lamp?

Man of Steel
We're always game for a new superhero movie, especially when it offers up a fresh take on an old standby. On June 14, we'll meet our new Superman (Henry Cavill), and we can't wait to see what director Zack Snyder does with his
new, slightly emo Man of Steel.

Zombie movies are a dime a dozen these days, but
Warm Bodies seems to take a different approach to the genre. Not only is the comedy a love story between a human and a zombie, but it appears that there might actually be a cure for the undead? We'll be lining up on Feb. 1 to see if the film lives up to its cute, funny trailer.

Considering how much we loved
Kick-Ass, it's no surprise that the sequel is on our list of must-see films for 2013. It's only been three years since the original, but I'm looking forward to seeing a more beefed-up Kick-Ass (Aaron Johnson), a new character played by Jim Carrey, and a more grown-up Hit Girl (Chloë Moretz) . . . or should I say Hit Woman?

Gangster Squad's 2012 release date got pushed to Jan. 11, 2013, we were a bit crushed — mostly because it meant that 2012 was a Ryan Gosling-free year. Luckily, we're just a few weeks away from seeing Gosling suited up, '50s style — and the trailer makes the rest of the movie look pretty good too.

The Great Gatsby
Gangster Squad isn't the only 2012 movie that became a 2013 movie: Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby also got pushed back, to May 10. It's not the greatest sign for a film, but we've still got high hopes for this glitzy, romantic adaptation of the classic novel.

Iron Man 3
We got a healthy dose of Tony Stark (
Robert Downey Jr.) in The Avengers, but it was only enough to tide us over for Iron Man's next solo movie. Luckily, that is coming on May 3 — and from the looks of the trailer for Iron Man 3, the stakes have never been higher now that Tony and Pepper are in a full-fledged relationship.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
Even though we already know what's going to happen in
Catching Fire, we still can't wait to see it play out on the big screen come Nov. 22. The sequel to The Hunger Games brings back Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence), as she's thrown into a brand-new arena and becomes even more conflicted about her affections for Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) and Gale (Liam Hemsworth). If you're still not sold, check out these badass pictures from the Hawaiian set.

Oz: The Great and Powerful
The Wizard of Oz has millions of devout fans, so it's a tricky business to make a successful prequel to such an iconic film. However, director Sam Raimi just might pull it off with Oz: The Great and Powerful. With James Franco as the wizard in his early years, this trip to the Emerald City — with Michelle Williams as Glinda and Mila Kunis as a young Wicked Witch — looks every bit as magical as the original.

The To Do List
Aubrey Plaza, best known as April on
Parks and Recreation, has yet to headline her own movie despite her status as a solid supporting character on both TV and film. That's why we can't wait to see her take the lead in The To Do List as a teenager determined to become a sex master before college. Check out the trailer and see if you agree that the '90s-set film already looks hilarious.

White House Down
Channing Tatum took some time to explore some of his other talents beyond action movies, but he'll be back in his element with June 28's White House Down. Not only is he playing a Secret Service agent, but Jamie Foxx will play the president he's trying to protect. Sign us up.
