Top Ten: Most Anticipated Films For 2015

As with every other year, there are plenty of new releases that I am very much so looking forward to seeing in 2015. There are a whole host of exciting new and returning prospects awaiting us! Which films are you most looking forward to in 2015? Let me know in the comments below! I will start off by introducing my honourable mentions, that didn’t quite make the list, but nevertheless, I am unquestionably excited to see what they bring.

Firstly, Goosebumpsbased on the book franchise by R.L.Stine; I couldn’t be more excited at the thought of this, as it was my favourite book series as a child, in fact, I read every single one. It’s going to be fascinating to see Slappy and all the great characters together on the big screen, as well as showing the Goosebumps brand to a whole new generation of viewers. As for Pixels, though I’m not sure as to whether it would be my cup of tea, nevertheless, it seems an interesting concept, which could fall one way or another. I also look forward to seeing what Pixar’s new release will bring: Inside Out. Only starring the magnificent Maggie Smith, The Lady in the Van also looks promising!

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?

      • It’ll be fun to see your reviews for some of the movies that you had on your list. I hadn’t heard of the Scorch one for example. Yeah, the Maze Runner definitely hasn’t had much publicity so far, they better step it up soon since the 1st one didn’t do amazing at the box office. (Although, obviously well enough for a sequel!)

  2. Wow this is an awesome list. And I had no idea they’re making a Goosebumps movie? What?! That series was incredible. Are they putting a lot of stories together or is it going to be a series of films?

  3. This is a great list!
    I’m also excited for star wars and the scorch trials!
    I love this blog, me being a movie buff and all, you have some great reviews and recommendations.
    I was just watching Truman Show again, have you seen it?

    • Thank You very much! Me too – as soon as I had finished writing this list, The Scorch Trials had completely slipped my mind. Very much so looking forward to it. I still have yet to catch up on Star Wars, though I imagine it will be a masterpiece (as always!)
      Oh gosh yes, The Truman Show!! I haven’t seen it in years, but it’s an all-time favourite of mine. That’s a great idea for a review – thank you! What do you think of the film?

      • I watched The eternal Sunshine of the spotless mind, and so The Truman Show was the next logical step!
        Well, it was a brilliant movie and I just loved the want of Jim Carrey to go out and explore. That was the only thing he didn’t have-his freedom. He was ready to leave a perfect world for that, and I find it beautiful.
