    I agree about Spectre, Star Wars, Avengers, etc. These are all going to be huge. The one that really intrigues me is Tomorrowland due to its fictional connections to Walt Disney and the 1964 World’s Fair. The preview was also so interesting and made me even more excited to see it.

      I’m also eager to find out more about Tomorrowland. I hope it’s another Pixar masterpiece.

    All the ones I failed to see this year! 🙁 Plus Legend, Southpaw, Ex-Machina, The Hateful Eight.

    • Dan Reply

      The Hateful Eight is going to be great!

  3. Pete Turner Reply

    Birdman and Whiplash and Chappie. In fact, all of these: http://letterboxd.com/ilovethatfilm/list/most-anticipated-2015/

  4. Cristov Reply

    Literally so many. The Hateful Eight and Foxcatcher for us lowly Brits.

  5. Stu Reply

    Birdman, Whiplash, Inherent Vice, Foxcatcher and, er, Steven Segal’s Cyborg Nemesis.

      …Steven Seagal has a new movie!? I’m surprised it’s not an Under Siege sequel!

  6. Daryl Nobbs Reply

    Undoubtedly some of the biggest, but I doubt they’ll be some of the best.

    • Dan Reply

      I absolutely agree. Like recent years, the best films will probably be the ones we’re not talking about right now.

  7. Ted S. Reply

    Spectre, The Hateful Eight, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Tomorrowland and Star Wars 7 are the ones I’m looking forward to see.

    I thought the new Terminator just looked awful, from that trailer they released anyway. There’s nothing new or exiting that I saw in the trailer. It’s a good example of Hollywood running out of original ideas.

    • Dan Reply

      Hi Ted, I thought the same as you thought about Terminator but for Jurassic World. What I liked about the new Terminator was the tie-ie to the first film. It may not work but I liked that link. I’m remaining optimistic for that one.

  8. Austin @ The Bishop Review Reply

    I agree, I’m excited for nearly all of these.

    The Terminator trailer shocked me. I had no interest in seeing this film but the trailer, especially Arnold waiting for himself from 1984 and then blowing himself away. Really good stuff. And of course, Star Wars is going to be all kinds of awesome. Should be a really good year. I’ve seen Whiplash and for those of you not fortunate enough to live in NA, believe me when I say that it is unquestionably one of the best of the year. Simmons is absolutely incredible and imo should win best supporting this year. Birdman is also some kind of incredible film.

    • Dan Reply

      yeah, I had the same reaction to Terminator. I didn’t know where they were going to go with it and really wasn’t interested. Even the return of Arnie didn’t excite me. But, when I saw that the film linked itself to the original and realised they had used the Arnie from ’84 and the Arnie from 2014 coming to blows, my intrigue went through the roof. It might not work – I’m worried about seeing other actors in roles I can’t imagine not being played by Linda Hamilton and Michael Biehn. Then again, I’m looking forward to being taken back to that story and how it might be affected by this new direction. Pity James Cameron didn’t come back to the director’s chair though.

    Jurassic World looks miscast but might not matter. AvengersAOU will be HUGE! Mad Max without Mel? Danger Will Robinson danger!

    Hit – Mad Max: Fury Road

  12. Saul Masters Reply

    Jupier Ascending is going to bomb.

  13. Josh Franks Reply

    Star Wars will make an easy billion.

  14. Dan Grant Reply

    Jupiter Ascending was originally slated to open last summer, they pushed it back to the spring. It looks really strange and it has a huge budget, it doesn’t look like it’s going to be a hit. I loved the Jurassic Park trailer as well. Gibson not being in Mad Max isn’t necessarily a bad thing, he’s basically box office poison now. Yes, SW will make a billion but that should be the floor. With expanding international markets, places like China and Russia and a few others, are basically getting films to unseen heights. I think the battle for world wide supremacy is going to come down to Avengers and Star Wars. Whoever wins, doesn’t matter to Disney, what a massive year they are going to have.

  18. Martin Roberts Reply

    Gotta say Star Wars is the one I’m looking forward to even though it’ll probably disappoint.
