2015 Movie Posters

Looking Forward to 2015 at the Movies!

That’s a wrap on 2014, and what a great year at the movies it was! (Best & Worst of 2014) Now we have a brand new crazy year of movies to look forward to. Pixar makes a welcome return to our summer movie schedule with Inside Out, and phase two of Marvel’s superhero franchise series concludes with the release of the eagerly anticipated Avengers: Age of Ultron, and Ant Man.

Inside Out Avengers: Age of Ultron The Divergent Series: Insurgent Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens

Your movie radar is probably already tracking the impending release of the new Star Wars movie, The Force Awakens, due out in December. And Mad Max is returning to our theater screens with the incredible looking Mad Max: Fury Road, starring Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron.

Mad Max: Fury Road Tomorrowland Peanuts Chappie

The youth dystopian train continues to roll on with the second installments of Divergent and The Maze Runner, and we’ll conclude Katniss’s adventures with The Hunger Games: MockingJay, Part 2. Mission Impossible V hits theaters in 2015, directed by Christopher McQuarrie, who gave us Jack Reacher, and the underrated The Way of the Gun. And MI:4’s director, Brad Bird (The Incredibles, Ratatouille) is at the helm of an interesting looking science fiction adventure flick called Tomorrowland.

2015 is also treating us to another Bond film with Spectre, and I’ve been impressed with the new Peanut’s footage I’ve seen so far.

As I examined the list of movies being release in 2015, I spotted a couple of match-ups that could yield interesting results. Jason Statham is teaming up with Melissa McCarthy in the CIA comedy, Spy. And Bruce Willis joins forces with Bill Murray in the comedy drama, Rock the Kasbah.

It’s not uncommon for well known actors to take a stab at directing, and the new year will see the first major motion picture directorial efforts from Courtney Cox (Just Before I go, comedy/Drama) and Russell Crowe (The Water Diviner, War/Drama).

Another notable development in 2015, is the release of the first NetFlix film. A sequel to Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon called The Green Destiny. Starring Donnie Yen (Ip Man) and Michelle Yoah (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Tomorrow Never Dies.)

So what do you think? What are you looking forward to in 2015?
