There are still plenty of movie releases left for 2015, but there are three that stand out ; Spectre, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 and Star Wars: The Force Awakens. But with all their hype, some other films are looking like they will be released under the radar. Let's have a look at what alternate releases 2015 has left in store.
Freaks of Nature - US release Oct 31
Halloween is around the corner and what better than a film that appears to pay homage to halloween and classic '80s slashers?'. Zombies, Vampires and Aliens all in one film!
The 33 - US release Nov 13
The remarkable true life story of 33 chilean miners trapped underground - in what could be considered as the greatest rescue mission of all time - sees its way to the big screen. This will surely be an inspiring story of human determination and spirit in the face of adversity.
The Secret in Their Eyes - US release Nov 20
Adapted from the successful Argentinean novel, the Oscar-winning star power of Julia Roberts, Nicole Kidman and Chiwetel Ejiofor alone, brings a decent buzz to this dark crime thriller. You can expect that from the start, nothing is what it seems.
Creed - US release Nov 27
The Rocky spin off movie sees Stallone return to his famous boxing character but this time as the trainer and mentor, with old rival Apollo Creed's son taking part in the aggressive meat-punching training montage.
In the Heart of the Sea - US release Dec 11
Ron Howard's Moby Dick film sees his second collaboration with Chris Hemsworth, after 2013's Formula 1 grand prix movie Rush. A big whale on the high seas can only mean swashbuckling high adventure is in store.
The Hateful Eight - US release Dec 25
It's easy to forget that 2015 is a Quentin Tarantino film release year. From hearing the film wasn't happening because the script was leaked, to being told we could expect to see it on the big screen by the end of the year, Tarantino's film has almost been lost with all the Star Wars December noise, but tickets to this will make a fantastic Christmas present for any film lover.
Point Break - US release Dec 25
The year will end out with the release of a remake of a much loved and adored film. Whilst there is some apprehension about whether this remake will ruin a classic 1990s action film, the previews so far show this could be a fun, action packed ride and worth catching on the big screen. It appears the film has intentionally been crafted for a full 3D cinema experience.
Are there any other 2015 films not yet released worth seeing on the big screen? Do you agree with this list? Let us know in the comments!
