2015 will see a bunch of new films being released and although the line-up is extensive and exciting, there are some movies that just get us buzzing a little bit more. Here are our top five most anticipated movies of 2015, all of which will be hitting cinemas within the next 365 days.
The tragic death of Paul Walker delayed this instalment to the Fast & Furious 7 franchise but 2015 will see the film finally being released. We’re curious of Director James Wan’s direction of the film following Fast & Furious 6 which sees Shaw’s brother played by Jason Statham out to avenge his brother’s death.
The Avengers: Age of Ultron
The Avengers reunite to take on a new threat, one that will shake the Marvel cinematic universe to its core. Age of Ultron sees Earth’s Mightiest Heroes banding together to stop Ultron, a high-tech artificial intelligence programme that threatens to wipe out human kind. More importantly, the Marvel Phase II film will set the path for future films in the universe, specifically Captain America: Civil War, which will likely pit Iron Man against Captain America.
Breakout stars of Despicable Me, the Minions get their own solo adventure and judging by the first trailer it looks to be funny as heck. The prequel tale will see the backstory of the Minions revealed as they journey to New York in the 70s in search of an evil master to serve.
The Jurassic Park franchise needs a shot in the arm and we think Jurassic World is going to ignite that interest. The new film takes place two decades after the events of Jurassic Park with the island of Isla Nublar finally becoming the tourist attraction it was meant to be. However, scientists soon cook up a new dinosaur called the D-Rex, which escapes and goes on a rampage on the island.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens
You’ve got to be living under a rock to not have heard anything about the new Star Wars adventure. Directed by JJ Abrams and reuniting the cast of the original franchise, the new sci-fi instalment is set to enthral original fans as well as new ones and extend the Star Wars saga well and beyond. The new saga is set after the events of Return of the Jedi and will see characters from past and present reunite to take on a new threat that threatens the galaxy.
