May 2013: The Five Releases You Can't Miss

As the Summer Of Film 2013 enters its hottest phase, see what we have to come in the month ahead...
What with our Summer Hiatus taking up the month in its entirety, May 2013 feels like a strange period for On-Screen. Nevertheless, the month itself is packing plenty of major entertainment releases, and when we do return after exams and other commitments in June, you can be assured we'll have all the definitive verdicts you need to provide guidance as to what to do and see next! Here's our guide, then, to the Top 5 Hottest Releases which we reckon will be rating highest upon our return:
5. GAME OF THRONES- After a stunning set of opening episodes, the saga of Westeros is entering its darkest and most intense period as the third season races towards its explosive climax. With Tyrion, Sansa, Jaime, Joffrey, Robb, Danaerys, Jon, Brann, Varys, Margery, Cersi, Tywin and Arya all embroiled in a host of deadly conspiracies this time around, who if anyone can win the game? It's time to find out...(Monday 6th, 13th, 20th, 27th)
4. THE HANGOVER: PART III- The Wolfpack are back. Heading to Las Vegas one final time, the gang are attempting to get Alan's life back on track by taking him to a mental rehabilitation clinic. What transpires, though, is far more menacing, as a group of FBI warlords take Doug hostage and demand that Stu, Phil and Alan find Leslie Chow and bring him to them before the day is out. It's a simple yet effective set-up for what should be a truly epic finale to a trilogy filled with hilarious mishaps! (Thursday 24th)
3. STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS- Another major Summer Of Film 2013 entry, Star Trek Into Darkness follows up on JJ Abrams' hot 2009 reboot of the science-fiction franchise with another grandiose adventure. Benedict Cumberbatch stars as a mysterious villain who casts the lives of the Enterprise crew and the entire human residence on Earth into chaos, forcing Kirk and Spock on a vendetta mission into the depths of the space that will require the ultimate sacrifice. How far would the Enterprise crew go to save their planet, I wonder? (Thursday 9th)
2. DOCTOR WHO- As the 50th Anniversary Spring run of blockbuster episodes of Doctor Who continues, things are really building towards a climax now. In The Crimson Horror, Vastra, Jenny and Strax must race to save the Doctor and Clara from a deadly Victorian horror fate. In Nightmare In Silver, the Doctor brings Clara's carechildren Artie and Angie along for the ride, only to discover that the greatest theme park in the universe is not what it seems, and a deadly silver resurrection is coming! Finally, in The Name Of The Doctor, the Doctor's greatest secret is revealed, and the mysteries behind Clara and the Great Intelligence are unraveled in what promises to be an incredible prelude to the 50th Anniversary Special later this year...(Saturday 4th, 11th and 18th)
1. THE GREAT GATSBY- Some of you may be surprised to see a somewhat lesser-known Summer Of Film entry adorning the top of our list. Nevertheless, Baz Luhrmman's impending adaptation of F Scott Fitzgerald's glorious Jazz Era novel The Great Gatsby looks like an extremely hot prospect, combining modern editing technologies and a dazzling soundtrack filled with iconic artists with a vintage feel to the whole production, and boasting none other than Leonardo DiCaprio in its lead. Prepare for cinematic excellence, as we delve into the enigma that is Jay Gatsby, and, as Florence and the Machine put it, the green light in his eyes! (Friday 10th)
