Best Action and Adventure Films of 2013: Updated with trailers for "Red 2" and "Olympus has Fallen"

Introduction

The time has come to release my annual preview hubs for the upcoming new year. Sadly, I fell a bit behind last year to the point that I missed my own deadline to publish these previews. However, I'll be extending that deadline until the beginning of next week, so I hope many readers will find these previews informative about the films being released in 2013.

Like last year, these films are all divided up by their own genre, it'll feature cast and info on each film featured in said preview hub. Some of these previews will have trailers, while others won't, as some have yet to release a trailer. However, I'll be updating this hub throughout 2013, so be sure to check back here for frequent updates.

Also, keep in mind that release dates are subject to change, so be sure to check your local listings. As for those wondering where all the animated features, superhero flicks, science fiction, and fantasy films are that feature action, then feel free to click on any of the links below for that information.
