Most Anticipated Films of 2015
I’ve had a look into some hotly anticipated films of this year.
Fifty Shades of Grey
Release Date: 14 Feb
I’m not one of the women who read the book, but I’ve heard a lot about the storyline. It was dubbed as ‘mommy porn’ but people from all backgrounds and ages got into the books and the same is expected for the films, especially with hunk Jamie Dornan taking on the role of Mr Grey. The film is due for release on Valentine’s Day – I’m not sure it is the film for the first date!
Release Date: 10 April
Can you believe it The Fast and the Furious film series started 14 years ago!? This is said to be the last in the series and is also the last film the late Paul Walker will appear in. The Rock is back in this one too, so expect the much-loved cars of the previous instalments as well as some high-octane action.
The Avengers: Age of Ultron
Release Date: 24 April
The early release of the trailer was cleverly covered up by Marvel blaming Hydra. Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye join together as the world hangs in the balance as the villainous Ultron emerges.
Pitch Perfect 2
Release Date: 15 May
The Barden Bellas are back! They enter into an international competition that no American team has ever won – I’m sure we’ll all be cheering them on!
Mad Max: Fury Road
Release Date: 15 May
Tom Hardy revives the Mad Max character in this action-filled film. The original was released back in 1979 and the new apocalyptic feature is set to bring a new generation to the franchise.
Release Date: 12 June
Who doesn’t love Jurassic Park? It was 12 years ago we were introduced to the island full of living dinosaurs. Jurassic World is set 22 years after the original. We see a fully functioning theme park as originally envisioned by John Hammond, but it isn’t all rosy…
Release Date: 1 July
Another reincarnation of a classic, the Terminator series is back and ready to change a few things you thought you knew about the storyline. Arnie returns and of course action is at the forefront of this movie, but this time they’re trying to stop Judgement Day – I think it may get a little confusing so try and watch carefully.
Release Date: 24 July
The story of an orphan who is spirited away to the magical Neverland – it’s Peter Pan but a lot darker than you’ve seen before. We’ve seen a lot of these types of film lately. The story of how the hero or villain becomes just that is a different dimension to a story. Hugh Jackman is bald in this – it looks weird but interesting.
Release Date: 17 July
Armed with a super-suit with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, con-man Scott Lang must embrace his inner hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym, plan and pull off a heist that will save the world. I’m not sure on this one but Paul Rudd seems to pull it off – we shall see…
Release Date: 10 July
I am really looking forward to this one! The much-loved Minions from Despicable Me have their own movie. They’re set to make you laugh whatever your age. There is an all-star cast too including the likes of Michael Keaton, Sandra Bullock, Steve Coogan and Jennifer Saunders.
James Bond: Spectre
Release Date: 6 November
A cryptic message from Bond’s past sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organisation. It’s been 3 years since Skyfall and Daniel Craig is back in the 007 role. The truth behind Spectre is set to be revealed.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2
Release Date: 20 November
It is the final instalment of the Hunger Games series and set to be a big battle too. After being symbolised as the ‘Mockingjay’ Katniss Everdeen and District 13 engage in an all-out revolution against the autocratic Capitol. Get the tissues ready as there are sure to be a few deaths that pluck the heart strings.
Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens
Release Date: 18 December
Star Wars fans everywhere have this date in their diary. It was announced last month and since then there has been a hoard of speculation in every corner of the internet. It’s a continuation of the saga created by George Lucas set thirty years after Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi (1983).
