This year’s Hollywood movie scene is full of sequels, prequels, re-makes and even a few original stories that will entertain the movie masses. There are quite a few flicks that are highly anticipated this year and a few that are not going to even get off of the ground. 2013 was the year that we were supposed to finally get another Top Gun film, rumored to be a prequel to the original, but that film production was scrapped with Tony Scott’s death. Despite that movie that will not be, this should still be an exciting year for Hollywood movie action. Here is a list of the top 10 anticipated movies of 2013.
1: Dorothy of Oz
