Movies To Look Forward To In 2015
2015 has got some great movies in store for us, there’s the return of Pitch Perfect with the sequel promising to be another sing along hit. The brand new film from Margot Robbie and Will Smith which mixes romance with con men and Marvel is back with the next installment of the Avengers. What movie of 2015 takes your fancy?
Pitch Perfect 2
Pitch Perfect was a film that made a capella cool, it was a box office smash hit and the soundtrack “Cups” reached the Billboard Hot 100 charts. The second film does not look like it will disappoint with original cast members Anna Kendrick (Becca) and Rebel Wilson (Fat Amy) set to return.
Director, Elizabeth Banks has been extremely hush, hush in regards to the plot line. We only know that the Barden Bella’s are now graduating seniors and the film will follow them as they juggle university, relationships and of course a capella championships.
The music will again be a huge part of the movie with appearances from real life infamous a cappella groups Pentatonix, The Filharmonic and Penn Masala. In keeping with the contemporary feel of the movies, we’re sure there are going to be some amazing renditions of current chart hits as well as some old school tracks.
Entourage, the film is a continuation of the HBO TV series of the same name, the show follows Vincent Chase (Adrien Grenier) who is an A list film star and his group of childhood friends as they navigate their lives in LA. Inspiration for the show and the film came from the producer’s (Mark Wahlberg) very own early experiences in LA.
The only indication of the plot that Wahlberg has given is that he wanted to get the guys back together for the movie, as at the end of the series they had formed relationships with very strong female characters. The film is rumoured to have endless amounts of cameos. Faces that you are sure to recognise are Liam Neeson, Piers Morgan and Thierry Henry.
The Avengers- Age of Ultron
Our favourite Marvel characters are once again thrown together in a movie epic. The existence of the human race is put into jeopardy and the Avengers need to work together as a team to save the world. This is a lot easier said than done when tensions are high within the team. Director Joss Whedon has hinted that this Avengers film will be darker than the first he has said “There is a sci-fi element that’s a little bit stronger that the previous film”.
Marvel have announced that they will be releasing a huge amount of films up until 2019; there will be a mix of sequels and also original films introducing Marvel characters that have not yet made their big screen debut.
The trailer for Taken 3 was released earlier in 2014 and had everyone in anticipation for the film. You see Brian Mills (Liam Neeson) framed for his wife’s murder and use his “special set of skills” to escape the CIA, FBI and the Police. A lot of people have felt that the trailer gave away more than it really needed to but we’re definitely going to be heading to the cinema to see what other surprises are in store for Brian.
We’re surprised the movie franchise got to a third film and Liam Neeson has now said that Taken 3 has got to be the last. How many more times are things going to happen where he needs to use his “special skills”?
The directors of Crazy, Stupid, Love have enlisted Will Smith (playing Nicky) and Margot Robbie (who plays Jess Barrett) for their latest film, Focus. It is a mix of comedy, romance and criminal con men, which is due to be released in February. The film sees Will Smith play con man, Nicky, who teaches his intern, Jess, the tricks of the trade. She soon realises she can make a name for herself on her own and re-emerges as a competitor con artist.
The film has been a few years in the making due to lots of casting changes; Kirsten Stewart was originally cast as Jess but was later dropped due to the age difference between her and Will Smith. We think Margot Robbie definitely suits the role of Jess; her acting has that seductive edge which she perfectly demonstrated in her breakout role in The Wolf Of Wall Street.
