Now that the new year is really starting to get going I thought it was time to share my most anticipated blockbuster movies of the year. Early last year I remember believing that this year was going to be one of the biggest years for Hollywood movies but Im starting to think that next will take that title now. Some of the movies like Avatar 2, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Lies, and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice were originally set to come out this year but have been rescheduled. But we still have some major movies coming out this year to look forward too.
In last but not least we have the seventh instalment of The Fast and the Furious franchise. Now people complain that this franchise has gone on for too long but at the end of the day these movies are successful. One of the things I like about these movies is that they don't usually disappoint. I don't watch a Fast and Furious movie for its well written script or its character development like other movies. I watch them for the action, fast cars and simply the entertainment. They don't disappoint me because I don't expect too much out of them. When it comes to other movies, you sometimes watch them with high exceptions. Which can lead to disappointment if its not what you expected it to be. The Fast and the Furious movies aren't like that, all Im looking for in them is entertainment and thats what I get. The recent Super Bowl spot looked awesome and the same goes for the official trailer. Can't wait to see Jason Statham play the villain and I also hope it gives a good send off for Paul Walkers Brian O'Connor.
While I am really looking forward to this movie I am also terrified that it'll be an abomination. Now I think the main thing that I and all the fans of the original need to accept is that this movie will be made for the new generation of film fans. Not just for us fans of the first movie. When I see this movie I will not go in hoping for it to be as good as the first Jurassic Park because it probably won't. So I say this to all the fans of Jurassic Park, watch this movie without the original clouding your mind. This is a new movie for a new audience. If you end up not liking Jurassic World you still have Jurassic Park. I am really hyped for the movie especially after seeing the Super Bowl spot. The new dinosaur from the glimpses we saw looks terrifying and the new actors may not live up to the original cast but that doesn't mean they won't be good.
STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS
Yes many of you are probably thinking "Why isn't this in first or second place?", but I have my reasons. I am really looking forward to this movie but at the same a little worried for it. Its got a lot to live up to, especially if its to avoid the criticism the prequels got. I myself have faith that this will be an awesome movie but its been a while since Star Wars Episode III. And the next two movies I have on my list have had more recent films. So with this gap since the last Star Wars movie Im gonna need to see the new one before I can really get back into the franchise. Or an official trailer that blows my mind. Still at the moment I am really excited for the new movie and now that the Middle Earth franchise has come to a close I need a new franchise to get into. Sure we have the comic book movies but those aren't the only franchises I need to survive on. With Middle Earth over its like a part of me has died and hopefully Star Wars will do just the thing to resurrect that part of me. Also don't you just love lightsaber duals, cause I can tell you I am craving a new lightsaber dual.
Yeah thats right, Im putting a Bond movie before Star Wars. I loved what they did with Skyfall, from the story, characters, action sequences and the cinematography. Such beautiful cinematography. I think Sam Mendes did a great job with the last Bond movie and cannot wait for what he has in store with Spectre. The new cast members is something to really get excited about, oh and the new Aston Martin. After the success of Skyfall it seems the Bond franchise is really taking a turn for the best. I've always looked forward to a Bond movie but right now I couldn't be more excited. Skyfall will be pretty big to live up too, but if they can raise the stakes then it should be an incredible film. In fact I believe it could very well be the best movie of 2015.
THE AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON
Lets be honest but could any movie really take the lead on this one. I know some are a little more excited for Star Wars but I got to side with The Avengers on this occasion. The fact that one of my favourite villains is finally coming to the big screen and the fact that its a sequel to the box office hit of 2012, I couldn't be more excited. Not to mention were gonna see Tony suiting up in the Hulkbuster armour to take on Hulk. Also looking forward to the introduction of Scarlet Witch and Vision. Although I am a little disappointed with the character profile that was released on the Vision. Hopefully though this movie should be super awesome and will top the first Avengers movie.
Well there's my list of most anticipated movies to come in the year. From other peoples lists I can say that mine doesn't differ much but I just enjoy writing about this kind of stuff. So I hope you enjoyed the read and until next time.
