THE GREAT GATSBY Among Fandango's List of 'Most Anticipated Movies of 2013'

Fresh off the heels of Fandango's best-performing year in 2012, the leading moviegoer destination surveyed more than 2,000 film fans last weekend, asking them about the films and stars they are most anticipating in the new year. Fandango's Chief Correspondent Dave Karger also weighs in with his expert opinions on Fandango's Hot List categories for 2013, which include "Most Anticipated Blockbuster," "Biggest Male Breakout Star," and "Biggest Female Breakout Star." Fans also gave their opinions on the "Sexiest Men and Women in the Movies." All of the results of Fandango's 2013 Hot List are available at Fandango.

"From the elegance of 'The Great Gatsby' to the amped up action of 'Iron Man 3,' 2013 will be loaded with blockbuster originals, sequels and reboots, giving moviegoers of all tastes a bounty of options at the box office this year," said Karger.

Karger and fans found common ground agreeing that Henry Cavill ("Man of Steel") will be the "Biggest Male Breakout Movie Star" of 2013. They diverged, however, on other categories such as "Most Anticipated Blockbuster," with fans picking "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" and Karger favoring the Brad Pitt-fronted zombie thriller "World War Z."
