With a new year comes new movies, and 2015 does not disappoint. This year is packed with anticipated films, from rom-coms to action thrillers to reboots of classics. Here are the films you definitely don’t want to miss in 2015:
Fifty Shades of Grey Release date: February 14th 2015 Four years ago Fifty Shades of Grey was released, an erotic drama novel that became a worldwide smash hit. The book has now been adapted into a movie which tells the story of Anastasia, a naive student who meets the wealthy and mysterious Christian Grey and follows their relationship. Fifty Shades of Grey is released on Valentines Day so if you are feeling a little kinky, this might be the movie for you!
The Avengers: Age of Ultron Release Date: April 24th 2015 The next film in the Marvel Universe is the highly anticipated Age of Ultron, which finds The Avengers in the aftermath of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s destruction. Tony Stark’s creation of Ultron, an artificial intelligence, backfires when Ultron decides humans are the enemy and yet again The Avengers have to pull together to save the world. Marvel’s film offerings keep getting better and better, so if you like smart superhero movies this one is definitely for you.
Pitch Perfect 2 Release Date: May 15th 2015 If you haven’t watched the first Pitch Perfect movie, go and watch it now. It’s a hilarious, heartwarming movie with singing – It is amazing! This year the Bella’s are back, and this time they are entering an international acapella competition that has never been won by an American team. This movie is sure to make you laugh, and think you can sing, and as it is out in May it is the perfect film for some post-exam de-stressing!
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 2 Release Date: November 20th 2015 The final instalment in The Hunger Games series, Mockingly, Part 2 concludes Katniss’s epic journey against the regime of the Capitol. As revolution breaks out, can Katniss survive in the face of an epic challenge and protect the future of Panem? The whole Hunger Games film series has been a must-watch; it’s well acted, with an engaging plot and political undertones that resonate worldwide. The conclusion of this series is bittersweet, but The Hunger Games is sure to go out on a high note.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens Release Date: December 18th 2015 This reboot of the classic sci-fi is wrapped in mystery. All we know for sure is that it’s set thirty years after the events of Return of the Jedi. Whilst Han Solo, Princess Leia and Luke Skywalker are back, we also have some new faces. The Force Awakens hits cinemas in December, so it’s still a long wait, but if it lives up to all the hype, it will be worth it.
So those are my most anticipated films of 2015. There are so many films that look amazing coming out this year, so it was hard to narrow it down to five.
