Park City, Utah is about to get crowded as the film world descends for the 2013 Sundance Film Festival. While Sony Entertainment Network won’t be there on the ground, there are a number of movies we’re looking forward to.

A.C.O.D.: The always-great Adam Scott plays a man who finds that, as a child, he was part of a study on divorce.

Ain’t Them Bodies Saints’: Casey Affleck is a man on the run from the law who just wants to get back to his wife, played by Rooney Mara.

Austenland: Keri Russell is one of a group of women who are obsessed with the world of Jane Austen, to the point of taking a vacation that promises the complete Austen experience.

Don Jon’s Addiction: Joseph Gordon-Levitt caps off a great couple of years with this directorial debut about a porn-addicted ladies man.

The Way, Way Back: The Oscar-winning writing team of Jim Rash and Nat Faxon (they won for The Descendants) are back with a cast including Sam Rockwell, Steve Carell and others.

Before Midnight: The third movie from director Richard Linklater and starring Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy as would-be lovers who have never met in the right place at the right time.

jOBS: We’re intrigued by the idea of Ashton Kutcher playing Apple guru Steve Jobs and will watch the reactions that come out of this movie’s screenings closely.

Lovelace: Famed porn actress Linda Lovelace is brought to life by Amanda Seyfried in this biopic.

Upstream Color: No idea what this one is really about, but the first couple of trailers have us interested to see what director Shane Carruth has in store.

Touchy Feely: Being big fans of director Lynn Shelton (Your Sister’s Sister, Humpday) we’re excited for this new one, starring Rosemarie DeWitt and Ellen Page.
