10. Suffragette –
Inspired by the true stories of the Suffragette movement, this film has set my hopes high, especially with a wonderful cast: Carey Mulligan, Helena Bonham Carter, Meryl Streep and Ben Whishaw. The fact that the trailer reveals next to nothing has only made me all the more intrigued by this piece of cinema.
9. Ant-Man –
As many of you will know, I am not a massive Marvel fan, Ant-Man however, seems like an entertaining ride. I am intrigued to see how it turns out, as it seems different from the rest.
8. Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 –
The Hunger Games series draws to a close this November with the release of its final chapter, Mockingjay: Part 2. The first part of this two-part finale divided fans, and many criticised it for lacking action (both of which are valid criticisms), though personally I thought it was the best one yet. I eagerly await to see how this franchise will end.
7. The Revenant –
Alejandro González Iñárritu’s Birdman was one of my favourite films of 2014, so this man has proved he can do wonders. The film stars Leonardo DiCaprio as a frontiersman in the 1820’s who gets mauled by a bear and is left for death by men that he later tracks down to kill.
6. Tomorrowland –
Director, Brad Bird, was the man who brought us the animated masterpiece The Incredibles. The teaser trailer released of Tomorrowland with its air of mystery and intrigue makes it quite promising. The futuristic narrative appears to be a good one.
5. Spotlight –
Based on a true story, this upcoming American drama film is directed by Thomas McCarthy, it tells how the Boston Globe uncovered the massive scandal of child molestation and cover-up within the local Catholic Archdiocese, shaking the entire Catholic Church to its core. There isn’t much out there regarding this film – not even a trailer! Though, what stands out for me is the narrative as well as an exceptionally put together cast: Stanley Tucci, Michael Keaton, Mark Ruffalo and Rachel McAdams.
4. Crimson Peak –
Guillermo Del Toro is ready to scare us again. Crimson Peak stars Tom Hiddleston, Charlie Hunnam and Mia Wasikowska. Del Toro isn’t going to rely on jump scares, and it shows. I simply can’t wait!
3. Black Mass –
Black Mass could be a masterpiece. I’m calling that right now. If this doesn’t fetch Johnny Depp an Oscar, then I don’t know what will. Physical transformation – Check. Comeback Performance – Check. Biopic – Check. I hope the film matches up to the high expectations it has set!
2. Jurassic World –
When I saw the trailer to Jurassic World I have to admit, it worried me. I loved the first Jurassic film. Here, I’m worried that after 22 years since the original, are we going to see something new and fresh? I hope so.
1. Ex Machina –
The trailer for this sci-fi film looks exceptional. The film is about a young programmer that is brought into a remote facility to participate in a breakthrough experiment in artificial intelligence. Unlike Chappie, this film appears to be taking leaps and bounds into the prospects of the singularity and the future of robotics, both sociologically and philosophically.
I hope you enjoyed reading my list and got something out of it…as for now, how about we go back to watching some new films?
