MTV Movie Brawl 2013: Round One Begins!

The brawl for it all is officially on!

Voting for round one of the MTV Movie Brawl 2013 is officially open, giving you the chance to pick the film you’re most excited for in the coming year. Here’s how it works: after the jump, vote for the films you’re most excited to see in 2013 from our list of 40 movies. You’ll be able to fight for your movie of choice in this play-in round until voting closes early on Monday morning (January 14). And if you don’t see the movie you’re most excited about on our poll, leave the film’s title in the comments section or tweet it to @MTVMoviesBlog using the hash-tag #MTVMovieBrawl — if your unrepresented movie of choice gets enough fan support, we’ll add it to the poll later in the week as a wild card entry.

But be warned: round one will knock out a huge chunk of the competition. Starting January 14, our original list of 40 will be whittled down to 16 movies based on your votes. That’s when our bracket launches and the 16 flicks will start going head-to-head, March Madness-style, in single-elimination contests — until only one movie reigns supreme.

So, without further ado, click on the photo above to start voting on your most anticipated movies of 2013!
