Big in 2013 - Sandra Bullock

Sandra Bullock & Melissa McCarthy in 'The Heat'
Sandra Bullock returns with a vengeance this year. After reaching the biggest success of her long career in 2009, she took some time off and did just one film. She's back in 2013 though with two interesting films that could both be blockbusters for different reasons. First is The Heat, co-starring Melissa McCarthy and directed by Bridesmaids director Paul Feig. Its the first R-Rated Comedy film of Bullock's career, and should be one of the biggest comedy films of the year.

Her other project which comes out this year is Gravity. This is directed by Alfonso Cuaron, the first film he has directed since the acclaimed Children of Men in 2006. Gravity is going to utilize IMAX and 3D to its advantage, considering it takes place almost entirely in outer space, it actually makes sense rather than just being a cash grab. Cuaron is taking his time to make sure it all looks right, so i'll just assume the finished product will be breathtaking considering the imagery he added to both Harry Potter & The Prisoner of Azkaban and Children of Men. Bullock is joined by George Clooney as astronauts who must find a way home after the space station is damaged. Rumor is Clooney's role is much smaller, so we'll see how this works out.

She also just won the first ever "Favorite Humanitarian" award at the People's Choice Awards. Great start to what should be another solid year by one of America's favorite actresses.
