January 10th, 2013 by Marc Comments

It’s been a while, but we’re delighted to have the Big Picture back with it’s monthly view of all the news worth telling in movie releases…

So, without further ado…

Happy New Year one and all! And what a year for film 2013 promises to be!

We hit the ground running in January as an all-star cast lead the charge in the thrilling Gangster Squad. If it’s more nail-biting tension and all-out action you want then the acclaimed Zero Dark Thirty is right round the corner! The returning Quentin Tarantino gets in on the act too this month with his ode to the Spaghetti Western, Django Unchained. And, lest we forget, Award Season is here with the stunning Lincoln and the phenomenon that is Les Miserables threatening to clean house! Get ready for a month full of must-see movie action!

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
