If the buzz around this movie is anything to go by then The Great Gatsby could well be one of the most popular movies of this year. Backed up by a strong star cast of Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, Joel Edgerton and Carey Mulligan this novel based movie is a dramatic tale of a young war veteran's romance who gets smitten by a rich lady from his neighbourhood. Another reason to celebrate about this movie is the director Baz Lurhman, who has donned many hats apart from his love for direction. The promos of the movie appear quite promising and even showcase the most iconic actor from Indian cinema, Amitabh Bachchan, in a small but an interesting role.

They are back and how. This third instalment of The Hangover franchise is back to take you on yet another comedy adventure trip filled with unceasing fun, rampant amnesia and some hidden and unknown secrets which can jeopardise the otherwise happy life of its protagonists. The awesome threesome of Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis and Ed Helms find themselves in trouble after a situation which is neither a bachelor's party, nor a wedding. Unlike the second part, which seemed nothing more than a bad copy of its first part, this one promises more fun and some new interesting twists which are set up in Los Angeles, Las Vegas and more under the able direction of Todd Phillips.

This is a sci-fi action movie which has enchanted viewers with its franchise in the past. Directed by J.J.Abrams this action movie will be released in 3D and will cash on its futuristic journey of battle to save earth. The main protagonist Captain James T Kirk played by Chris Pine leads the adrenaline pumping action packed story of war against John Harrison played by Benedict Cumberbatch. It is also touted to be one of the most awaited sequels of 2013, but only time can reveal how far does this movie go to please the audiences down under.
Release Date (Australia): 10th May 2013 Rating: PG-13 Duration: 95 minutes
This is a romcom which appears to be a good watch for entertainment. This revolves around Wade Walker played by Craig Robinson trying to woo his girlfriend's family (the Peeples) and the resultant saga of lies, conceit and plenty of fun and comedy. It could be one of those movies which you watch purely for its fun quotient. Kerry Washington plays the character of Grace Peeples, the love interest of Wade Walker. It's love, humour and lots of laughter capsulated together to enjoy some family time together.
