Playing The Movies We're Most Excited To See In 2015

2015 is going to be full of some truly amazing films. We've already covered the exciting sequels that we're most looking forward to in the coming months, now let's look at all the other amazing films that the coming year has to offer.

Jupiter Ascending
Feb. 6, 2015

Channing Tatum plays an intergalactic hit man who comes to Earth to protect Mila Kunis who, unbeknownst to her, is the queen of the universe. While it might sound cheesy, it's exciting to see a big-budget action movie that isn't based on a pre-existing franchise. Originality is a rare treat.

Kingsman: The Secret Service
Feb. 13, 2015

Just looking at this film's pedigree, you can't help but get excited. It's directed by the man who brought us X-Men: First Class and Kick-Ass, and it's based on a graphic novel by the writer who created Kick-Ass and Wanted. Plus, it stars Colin Firth as an action hero super spy!

Will Smith and Margot Robbie star as con-artists who get in over their head when they fall in love. While Margot Robbie was great in The Wolf of Wall Street, we're most excited to see Will Smith go quasi-bad for a role. It gets us amped up to see his performance in Suicide Squad in 2016.

While director Neill Blomkamp's last offering, Elysium, left a lot to be desired, his debut feature, District 9, is still one of the best sci-fi films of the last decade. And it looks like Chappie - a film about a robot who learns how to be human by growing up in a dysfunctional family full of low-level criminals – could rival District 9's incredible storytelling.

May 22, 2015

Britt Robertson and George Clooney star in this action-packed Disney film about a place out of time and space that gives us a glimpse of a super-futuristic world of science and wonder. Also, from the trailer, it looks like it has a pretty poignant political message.

San Andreas
May 29, 2015

Sure, it seems like it's just a scaled-down version of 2012, but it stars Dwayne Johnson and Paul Giamatti, and it's always fun to just watch them act for two hours. Add in some exploding dams and helicopter thrills and you've got yourself the quintessential popcorn flick.

June 5, 2015

Well… we've watched all eight seasons of the show… so it only seems logical to see the movie right? Even if it does look like it's just one long episode.

Inside Out
June 19, 2015

Made by Pixar! Do we need to say more? How about the fact that it stars the vocal talents of Amy Poehler, Bill Hader, and Mindy Kaling? It examines the emotions that all work together inside everyone's brains, and it looks as touching and adorable as everything Pixar produces.

July 17, 2015

Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas star in this hotly anticipated Marvel superhero movie which features a con-man (Rudd) who comes across a high-tech suit that allows him to shrink in size but increase in strength. Also, he fights bad guys. Really, all we needed to hear was that Paul Rudd is starring.

Reimaginings of the Peter Pan mythos are always rather entertaining, but what really looks great about this film is Hugh Jackman's bizarre, vampire-like portrayal of the Neverland pirate Blackbeard. Also, Garrett Hedlund, who stars as Hook, seems to be doing his best impression of Heath Ledger playing The Joker.

The Fantastic Four
Aug. 7, 2015

Sure, the first few times they adapted this comic series to the big screen it ended in total disappointment, but now we get to see Jamie Bell play The Thing! Also, Michael B. Jordan is in it, and we simply cannot miss a Michael B. Jordan performance.

The Hateful Eight
Nov. 13, 2015

This new western from Quentin Tarantino got us excited when the script leaked a few months ago. And after being told that it would never be brought to the screen we are now going to get to see it this year. As Django Unchained proved, Tarantino knows his way around a western, and this could become an instant classic.
