“Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery.”

2012 has been and gone, and one hell of a year it was too. It saw London successfully; triumphantly host the Olympic Games, it was the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. Culturally, London was at the epi-centre of high quality plays and musicals.

The Evening Standard Awards saw the best in the Arts business win a host of awards, among the winners were; Judi Dench, Simon Russell Beale, Danny Boyle and Hattie Morahan.

The amount of brilliant films which were produced in twenty twelve was astounding, amongst the films which were released were, ‘Anna Karenina’, ‘Life of Pi’, ‘Skyfall’ and many more.

So, if 2012 has been a cracker of a year for film, then Twenty Thirteen should be even better, with a whole host of big budget films due to be released in the next year which include; ‘Man of Steel’, ‘Monsters University’, ‘The Croods’, ‘Monsters Inc 3D’, ‘Iron Man 3’, ‘Planes’, ‘Elysium’ to just name a few.

If you haven’t already guessed, in this week’s issue we will be covering what films you should spend your money on in 2013 and the ones which you should miss, what you can look forward too, what you must see, what you should miss and an exclusive interview with ‘James Bond’ alumni, Samantha Bond.
