WATCH: See Anne Hathaway & Jennifer Lawrence as Superheroes!

Looking back at the year in movies, it's pretty clear that women rule. The New York Times agrees and has selected 13 of the year's most notable actresses -- including Anne Hathaway, Jennifer Lawrence and Rebel Wilson -- to play superheroes in a photo-and-video feature called Hollywood Heroines.

Go here to see the photo gallery, then scroll down to see the pictures come to life! (And don't worry about losing a workday; the videos are each a minute long.)

In her mini-movie, Anne Hathaway breaks free from a life of drudgery -- if only in her mind.

An encounter with a snake transforms Jennifer Lawrence from gardener to goddess.

Beasts of the Southern Wild's Quvenzhané Wallis creates an enchanted world in her backyard.

An exhausted Rebel Wilson rejuvenates herself by diving into a lake ... and emerging a gorgeous mermaid.

Watch the video below to see all 13 performances, or visit the New York Times YouTube channel. Here's hoping next year's movie actresses are just as inspiring!
