First wide-release certified fresh movie for 2013?

So far Mama has been the only 2013 movie released that has been fresh (that actually is showing in theaters people can go to) not counting ZDK or SLP because those are 2012 movies

Oh shit you were right, did not see this coming! Especially since it dropped really fast at one point to 70%.

It is possible given the current rating's it's getting. From what I gather it's very funny but a bit to optimistic.

Certified fresh is 75% or over with at least 40 reviews and at least 5 top critics fresh rating. Once it becomes certified fresh, it stays fresh unless it falls below 70

What is cerified fresh? I've always been confused about that!

I've always assumed it was when the score is high enough for the site to be confident that it will never drop below 60%.

Go to Silver Linings Playbook page. Look at the symbol next to it, now go to Mama's page and look at the tomato, see the difference? Certified Fresh is achieved when a movie has at least 50 reviews and at least 5 top critic reviews. It has to start with a high percentage and can't drop below 60. That's certified fresh, that pretty much everyone knows it will never reach rotten territory. I've noticed that there are some exceptions however. Captain America started out with like a 30% then shot up to 79%, it didn't become certified fresh till it hit 75%. It's kind of confusing, hope this helps a bit.

To be determined "Certified Fresh" a film must have at least 50 reviews and most likely never go below 60% on the tomatometer(as stated above). My addition to this is the fact that the tomatometer has two "sides". If you look above the tomatormeter bar on a given film's page, then you will notice a link called "Top Critics". This switches the meter to show it based solely on Top Critic reviews (I don't know how someone becomes a so-called Top Critic). Anyway, both the films "All Critics" and "Top Critics" tomatometers should be likely to NOT go below 60%. Sorry about the long-winded explanation. Hope this helps!

We'll see how true to the book this will be...... Probably won't live up to it.

I think this film will probably be fresh but I don't think critics will be kind enough to make this a certified fresh film though. I would like it to be though since we had a month without them....

So... Second wide-release certified fresh? Yeah, I think it will be. A solid director and cast, solid adaption material, it'll probably be good!

No Mama is just fresh, not certified fresh. I agree with everything else you just said though.

Oh, I didn't know what that meant. Now I do. Sorry! Yeah, it probably will be judging by talk from friends and various critics.

It probably won't be certified fresh, but fresh for sure based on the handful of reviews I read.
