These films are to come out during the year 2015. A mix of action, drama, comedy and animation is here. Whether you want a comic book film, a laugh-out-loud experience or to travel to a galaxy far far away, this is the list for you. So, what eleven films will you definitely are seeing next year?
Avengers: Age Of Ultron
Need I say more? The first film became the third highest-grossing film of all time, heralded critical acclaim all over the world and saw some of the most popular comic characters of all time finally come together in this massively epic story. Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, Hulk and the rest are back to save the world yet again. This time, instead of battling the trickster god Loki, the team are to take on the mad robot Ultron (James Spader) as he looks to eradicate the human race. Be prepared for lots of action, humour, mayhem and possibly the biggest movie to come out this year!
Completing Phase Two of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Ant-Man already has its work cut out for it as not only does it have to contend with carrying on the MCU after Age Of Ultron, but also it needs to establish a new rotation of characters the world. Edgar Wright may have left the project, but indications show that the combination of Peyton Reed and Adam McKay may just pay off and bring us a gem. Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas star in this movie which chronicles one of Marvel’s oldest franchises and finally brings Ant-Man to the big screen.
Bond 24 now has a title, and the idea that SPECTRE is involved is very exciting. The group, known since the first official bond film in 1962, will be taking centre stage in the latest outing for Daniel Craig. Playing Bond for the fourth time, Craig is about to face Christoph Waltz as he becomes Franz Oberhauser (though many assume this a red herring and that he shall actually play Blofeld who was a staple of the classic Bond films). With the filming just started, it is a long way to October 2015 and we can’t wait to see if this film can top Skyfall!
Fifty Shades Of Grey
I don’t get why this film is made. I know many women are going to go and see this and drag their boyfriend/fiancée/husband to see it. Coming out on Valentines weekend, the film is looking to really take the business and going to the cinema will be a plan for some men to keep their partner happy. Northern Irish actor Jamie Dorman plays the male lead to Dakota Johnson and looks to be one of the most explicit films of the year. If a woman has read the book and liked it, you can be sure they will be sat in the cinema in February watching it.
Next, we say goodbye to actor Paul Walker as his last film is out in 2015. After being delayed following the death of Paul and still having shots to be done, re-writes were put in place and filming was complete using Paul Walker’s brothers and helping bring the movie to a conclusion. Vin Diesel, The Rock, Michelle Rodriguez and more return for the new instalment. Will the franchise continue following the loss of Paul Walker? Who knows? Will you be seeing this film when it comes out? Yes!
Pitch Perfect 2
Ok, I have not seen Pitch Perfect, but I know how popular it was when released. Anna Kendrick led the 2012 musical-comedy with Elizabeth Banks, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Rebel Wilson as part of its cast. The songs were instant hits which spawned the song ‘Cups’ which hit No. 6 in the US single charts and won lots of awards. Compared to Glee, the show was positively seen for its fun characters, comedic tone and having a top soundtrack. If you like music in your comedy movies, this is definitely for you!
Seth MacFarlane brings back the foul-mouthed, ridiculously cute Ted for a second outing in 2015. With his best friend John (Mark Wahlberg) by his side, the two are set to make more laughs and make as big an impact as the first time. Mila Kunis may not be in this one, but with a cast including Liam Neeson, Amanda Seyfried, David Hasselhoff and the return of Sam J. Jones (AKA Flash Gordon). This movie looks to get even funnier and bring about even more stand out moments.
Dinosaurs! Dinosaurs! More Dinosaurs! Chris Pratt leads the cast of this upcoming sequel to the classic Jurassic Park and it looks good. Hybrid Dinosaurs look set to be the big bad in this film as the park, which is now fully functioning, looks to become in trouble again. Following the years of being in development hell, the movie is finally about to see the light of day and early footage looks impressive. With a new cast, updated CGI and the award winning combination of director Colin Trevorrow and writer Derek Connolly, I think we will be in safe hands when we return to Isla Nublar.
Is it a remake, a reboot, a sequel, a prequel or something else? The answer seems to be yes. Keeping to the same basic story, the story of a future where machines have taken over the world and are in war with the human race. John Connor sends back his friend Kyle Reese to protect his mother Sarah. On arriving in the past, she is already being looked after by a protector, the T-800. Showing an aged Arnold Schwarzenegger as The Terminator, he is back and ready to fight any and all dangers. Showcasing elements made famous in Terminator 1 and 2, this movie looks set to change all that we know before and create a new legacy. Will Terminator Genisys be worth the effort and turn out good? We will find out. The trailer looks rather decent.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens
Star Wars had to come back. Being one of the most successful franchises of all time, J.J. Abrams steps behind the camera of Episode VII to give us the world post-empire and see what happened with Luke, Leia, Han and the others after Darth Vader was defeated. Set 30 years after Return Of The Jedi, the new film follows a new threat and will unite heroes old and new to take the threat on. Though not out until December 18th 2015, we recently got a glimpse of what to expect in an 88 second teaser trailer, and we were most certainly teased. Look out for your favourite characters, intense action and that John Williams soundtrack which just had to be there.
No explanation needed. The Minions are probably the most popular animated characters since The Simpsons. They are cute, simple, harmless and funny. This film is a prequel to the hit Despicable Me films and follows three of the minions as they look to serve the most evil person they can find. Being around since the dawn of time, they always look to do the best they can for their master. With this guaranteed to be a hit with the kids and hopefully keeping the humour which had the adults laughing along too, don’t be surprised if Minions was to become the hit film of the summer holidays.
