So! What can we expect from 2015? Well….it turns out a whoooooole lot and plenty with some classic retro heritage with iconic superheroes and stories to boot.
Take a peep at some of our top films to watch out for in 2015….
The Avengers: Age of Ultron
There back folks! This Summer will see the next installment of the action-packed superhero fest The Avengers. With S.H.I.E.L.D. destroyed and the Avengers needing a hiatus from stopping threats, Tony Stark attempts to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program with Ultron, a self-aware, self-teaching, artificial intelligence. However, his plan backfires when Ultron decides that humans are the main enemy and sets out to eradicate them from Earth, and it is up to Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, the Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, along with support from Nick Fury and Maria Hill, to stop him from enacting his plans. Along the way, the Avengers encounter the powerful twins, Pietro and Wanda Maximoff, as well as the familiar Vision. Hold on tight!
Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens
Okay this is pretty big folks! Star Wars Episode VII is the first of three new Star Wars film from Disney since they took the reins and purchased Lucasfilm back in late 2012. Featuring some all-new faces as well as a few familiar names, this upcoming release will take place a cool 30 years after the events of Return of the Jedi and is sure to be back with a bang and set us up for the next phase of the Star Wars story.
Wow! Possible one of the longest films in the making, this fourth dino-tastic film from Universal Pictures was originally meant to come just four years after the release of Jurassic Park 3 back in 2001! Since then the script and story has been reworked, changed, adapted and now finally shot over ten years on. Taking place twenty-two years after the events of Jurassic Park, Isla Nublar, off of Costa Rica’s Pacific coast, now features a fully functioning dinosaur theme park now known as Jurassic World. This new park is owned by the Masrani Global Corporation. Owen (Chris Pratt), a member of the park’s on-site staff, conducts behavioural research on the Velociraptors. At the corporation’s request, the park’s geneticists create a genetically modified hybrid dinosaur to boost visitor attendance, but it soon runs wild on the island.
Arnie’s back!! Yep the cool and cold Terminator is back in action and is set to shake up things a bit. This is certainly one to watch out for for fans of the previous Terminator releases as it has been coined to ‘reset’ the other story, acting as a sequel, prequel.
In 2029, John Connor, leader of the Resistance, continues the war against the machines. At the Los Angeles’ offensive, John’s fears of the unknown future begin to emerge when John is notified by his army unit, Tech-Com, that Skynet will attack him from two fronts, past and future, and will ultimately change warfare forever. On the verge of winning the war against Skynet, Connor sends his trusted lieutenant Kyle Reese back through time to save his mother’s life and ensure his own existence. However, Kyle finds the original past changed.
After being orphaned at age nine by a T-800, sent to kill her when she was young to prevent the future, Sarah Connor has been brought up by another Terminator T-800 programmed to protect her. This Terminator has then trained her to face her destiny, which she adamantly tries to reject. Now, Kyle and Sarah have to escape the new T-800 and the T-1000 sent by Skynet to kill them, with the help of the old Terminator. Mad we know.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 2
If like us you’ve seen all the previous films, naturally this next instalment of Suzanne Collins adapted awesomeness is a must-see! Let the battle between the districts and the capitol continue!
After defeating Owen Shaw and his crew, Dominic, Brian O’Conner and the rest of the crew are able to return to the United States and live the normal life again as they had wanted, but Owen’s older brother, Ian Shaw (Jason Statham), is after Dominic, seeking revenge for the death of his brother, putting the entire crew in danger once more. After learning of Han’s death, the crew sets out to find the man who killed one of their own, before he finds them first. Perhaps not something for a nice romantic night out by hey, not everything can be all smiles and country walks :).
Now this looks amazing! Do you ever feel like there are lots of different voices and emotions inside your head? Okay maybe not literally but perhaps maybe decisions are harder because not everyone….sorry not every emotion in there can agree? Well this is the one or you!
Riley is uprooted from her Midwest life when her father starts a new job in San Francisco. Riley is guided by her emotions – Joy, Fear, Anger, Disgust and Sadness. The emotions live in Headquarters, the control center inside Riley’s mind, where they help advise her through everyday life. As Riley and her emotions struggle to adjust to a new life in San Francisco, turmoil ensues in Headquarters. Although Joy, Riley’s main and most important emotion, tries to keep things positive, the emotions conflict on how best to navigate a new city, house and school.
So there they are folks! Any films you’re really looking forward to seeing in 2015 that aren’t on our list? Shout them out below….
