The 2014 movie season is wrapping up, and with only a few big movies left for release – Exodus: Gods and Kings and the final Hobbit film this December – all eyes are turned to what Hollywood will bring in 2015. Overall, 2014 was a good year for movies and so far 2015 is looking a little sparse in comparison now that Batman v Superman has been pushed back to 2016. That being said, there are still a fair number of heavy hitters arriving next year. There’s a new Avengers film, a new James Bond, and a new Star Wars, just to name a few. There are many more films to look forward to than just the following 10 but these represent the most anticipated of 2015.
10. Jupiter Ascending
The Wachowskis are super talented directors who like to create original movies (refreshing given the overwhelming number of adaptations crowding the market) but their films don’t seem to get the recognition they deserve ever since they released the disappointing Matrix sequels over a decade ago. Their last film, 2012’s Cloud Atlas, was an incredibly ambitious science fiction piece that failed to light up the box office. Jupiter Ascending however might be just the film to change the siblings’ fortunes. Starring Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis, Jupiter Ascending is a space opera through and through, with a mix of different races and interplanetary politics dominating the proceedings. It looks weird, to say the least, but given the popularity of 2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy, another space opera of sorts, weird movies are definitely in right now.
