Hey Guys! Hope you all had a good Christmas!
With everyone talking about what has come in 2014 I thought I'd do the exact opposite and shed a little light on what's to come in 2015. These are movies that I will personally be watching and interest me, however they're movies I think that everyone won't wanna miss! The release dates may vary depending on the region you are in and I believe these ones apply to the US and I've also put the movies in order of their release dates.
So, put your presents to the side and slide on your reading glasses ...unless you got glasses for Christmas.
Paddington (January 16th)
This one's a bit weird because it's been in theaters in the UK since November 28th so I've already seen it (...twice actually) but it had to go on the list because January 16th is it's US release date and I just have to recommend it. You might take your kids to see it but you'll definitely be laughing your heads off at this one because it's that funny! Moving performances by practically everyone involved, this is going to be a sure-fire hit with the kids and won't be a drag for their parents. Also, Doctor Who is in it!!! - Albeit not as the Doctor we know and love.
Jupiter Ascending (February 6th)
Two days before my birthday if anyone wants to surprise me with a present. This one looks very interesting. With Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis among it's main cast it looks promising. The synopsis reads:
Jupiter Jones was born under a night sky, with signs predicting that she was destined for great things. Now grown, Jupiter dreams of the stars but wakes up to the cold reality of a job cleaning toilets and an endless run of bad breaks. Only when Caine, a genetically engineered ex-military hunter, arrives on Earth to track her down does Jupiter begin to glimpse the fate that has been waiting for her all along - her genetic signature marks her as next in line for an extraordinary inheritance that could alter the balance of the cosmos.
It sounds good!
Furious 7 (April 3rd)
Yes... That's it's official name (sadly)
The franchise may not be the best in the world but it's come a long way since we first met Brian and Dom and it's always kept me on bored. I like the movies although I wish I could use the contraption Alexander Pierce used on Bucky to make me forget the fourth one (*sad face*). The synopsis goes:
A continuation of the franchise, Fast and the Furious 7 continues after Dominic Torreto and his crew took down Owen Shaw, his brother, Ian Shaw, now wants revenge.
Meh. I'll still watch it.
Avengers: Age of Ultron (May 1st)
I don't really need to explain this because we all know this is going to be fucking amazing. Doubly amazing because we get it a week earlier here in the UK and hopefully my YouTube channel will be up and running by then but either way I'll definitely be covering it on here so watch out for that!
When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance. As the villainous Ultron emerges, it is up to the Avengers to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for an epic and unique global adventure.
Mad Max: Fury Road (May 15th)
I haven't seen the others before this but I hear they're great... well good, at least. I'm looking forward to watching this one but I doubt I'll watch the others (don't hate me). All my uncles seem to light up when I talk about this to them so I'm guessing a lot of you 25+ year old's are looking forward to this one!
Haunted by his turbulent past, Mad Max believes the best way to survive is to wander alone. Nevertheless, he becomes swept up with a group fleeing across the Wasteland in a War Rig driven by an elite Imperator, Furiosa. They are escaping a Citadel tyrannized by the Immortan Joe, from whom something irreplaceable has been taken. Enraged, the Warlord marshals all his gangs and pursues the rebels ruthlessly in the high-octane Road War that follows.
The trailer looks wicked!
Jurassic World (June 12th)
Wow does this look good. Not much to say here except the visuals look amazing and I'm intrigued by the new 'D-rex'. I have all my faith in Chris Pratt and even more so after seeing him in Guardians.
Yep, you guessed it, here's the synopsis:
22 years after the events of Jurassic Park, Isla Nublar now features a dinosaur adventure park, Jurassic World, as originally envisioned by John Hammond. This new park is owned by the Patel Corporation. Owen (Chris Pratt), a member of Jurassic World's on-site staff, conducts behavioral research on the Velociraptors. Jurassic World's attendance rates begin to decline and a new attraction, created to re-spark visitor interest, backfires.
Terminator: Genisys (July 1st)
Finally, a Terminator movie we can look forward to! After the wreck that was Terminator Salvation we deserve one of these don't we guys? With a bit of time travel and a whole lot of Arnie, what can go wrong?
The reason for Arnold's ageing is being explained by, I think, the fact that the skin over the metal does age where as the robot inside does not (do correct me if I'm wrong).
After finding himself in a new time-line, Kyle Reese teams up with John Connor's mother Sarah and an aging terminator to try and stop the one thing that the future fears, "Judgement Day".
He's back! (if you didn't get that, switch of your phone, turn it on its face and then stare at a wall).
Ant-Man (July 17th)
With it's rocky production and what-not, it's easy to shoot this movie down but I believe not only will this be a great entry into the MCU, but an essential addition. As of yet, we have no idea of the history of S.H.I.E.L.D. bar the flashbacks in Agents of Shield and the Agent Carter TV series which is set to air on January 6 (I believe), the casting of Hayley Atwell and John Slattery shows that we'll be venturing into what is mostly uncharted territory and if anything, the movie will compliment the Agent Carter series. The flashbacks are heavily rumoured to be about the formation of Ultron or maybe the formation of the idea of Ultron which Tony Stark uses to make what ends up as Ultron in the earlier Age of Ultron as Tony Stark "jump starts a dormant peacekeeping program". So, yes! I will definitely be watching this one.
Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, con-man Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) must embrace his inner-hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), protect the secret behind his spectacular Ant-Man suit from a new generation of towering threats. Against seemingly insurmountable obstacles, Pym and Lang must plan and pull off a heist that will save the world.
Ant-Man suit up!
The Fantastic Four (August 7th)
Urm... this movie is getting a lot of bad press before, throughout and even now, after production. From the uproar when Michael B. Jordon (A black actor) was cast as Johnny Storm (white in the comics) all the way to Victor Von Doom being changed to Victor Domashev. Admittedly, the latter did cause me pain. But anyway! I embrace change and this is a whole lot of change. Only time can tell what is to become of fox's Fantastic Four reboot, I'm just praying it's good.
A group of scientists are mutated into superpowered beings and must become heroes to save the world
Stay hopeful guys.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 (November 21st)
If this was to be done correctly and not for the money then The Hunger Games would have wrapped up this year but unfortunately it's been cut in half so we have to wait just under a year for part 2. The good news is that the second half of the book is almost all action but I don't want to ruin anything for you guys so I'll just say this; it's dark. very dark. Jennifer Lawrence is amazing as Katniss as always and Josh Hutcherson is awesome, can't wait to see them both.
Follows Katniss Everdeen as she leads the districts of Panem in a rebellion against the tyrannical and corrupt Capitol. As the war that will determine the fate of Panem escalates, Katniss must decipher for herself who she can trust and what needs to be done, with everything she cares for in the balance.
Can't think of anything quippy for this one.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens (December 18th)
Probably the one that I'm anticipating the most, after Age of Ultron is this one here. The trailer made me feel giddy. Giddy. Seeing the Millennium Falcon killed me. I swear. Everything about this seems so cool but unfortunately, it's practically a year away. While we're on the subject too, as of writing this it has been rumoured that Aaron Paul will play a younger Han Solo in the first Star Wars spin-off.
The beginning of a new Star Wars trilogy will take place 30 years after Episode VI: Return of the Jedi. The new films will feature "a trio of new young leads along with some very familiar faces".
Get to the choppa! Shit. Wrong franchise.
Well that's what is standing out for me guys. About 90% of the list are big budget blockbusters so make of that what you will. There's great movies coming out in the new year and it'll be a good year for movies all together. Other movies that aren't on the list are The Woman in Black 2: Angel of Death, Strange Magic, Insidious 3, Sinister 2, Inside Out (...Fuck I'm just listing them all now) Tomorrowland and The Junglebook! And don't forget a whole load of stuff on TV and Netflix!
So what movies are you guys looking forward to in 2015? Let me know in the comments!
That's all from me today guys. Hope you enjoyed. You can pick back up your presents now...
Happy New Year!
