Hey folks, compliments of the season to you all and welcome to 2015. Apologies for the long sabbatical leave, but we are here to stay now and feed yall with great content. 2014 has been a great year for film at home and abroad. Over here, we got the new offering from Kunle Afolanya; October 1 & AY’s feature film introduction 30 Days in Atlanta, the highly anticipated Half Of A Yellow Sun and many others. Over there, 2014 was like the year of biopics (Selma, The Imitation Game, The Theory of Everything, Get on Up, Mr. Turner) and kick-ass action movies. I AM GROOOOOOOOOOOT!!!!!

On to 2015, and if you’ve been paying attention to all the movie news that’s been floating around and all the impending releases, we’re in for one hell of an exciting year: superhero movies, all out action flicks, romantic movies, animations, comedies, Indies. So. Much. Goodness.

In anticipation of all this underwear soiling awesomeness, we’ve developed a list of the most highly anticipated movies to be released in 2015. In order of the least to the most anticipated, here are my 10 most anticipated movies of the year.

10. THE FANTASTIC FOUR

There is currently no film in Hollywood surrounded with more secrecy than Josh Trank’s The Fantastic Four. We’ve barely got anything concerning the details of this movie, and I mean anything. The only thing we’ve seen is what looks to be The Thing’s head and an obviously fake synopsis. The only word that has left the lips of anyone involved with the film is, “Grounded”

I love the cast. Nothing wrong there even though there’s been some backlash over Johnny Storm (Played by Michael B. Jordan) being black

With this movie, the anticipation is coming out of sheer curiosity. Hopefully, it doesn’t kill the cat… That was a stupid line. Just forget you read that last line. That wasn’t even funny. I’m so sorry.

9. INSIDE OUT

Inside Out is the new helping from the best animation studio in the world, Pixar. Pixar didn’t have any releases in 2014, and this left a gaping void on the animation front.

The thing about Pixar is they create great, new worlds for their audience to be a part of. Take Inside Out for example. It’s set in the mind of a 12 year old girl, the characters being her emotions: Joy, Anger, Disgust, Fear and Sadness. If the movie was set in my mind, the emotions would be: Brokeness, Turn Up and Konji….Jus saying.

8. JURASSIC WORLD

Let’s do a little math equation. Chris Pratt + Dinosaurs + Theme park = x (20 marks). If you’re answer was a combination of cool sounds like “SWOOSH!” and “KRAKAKAKAKA!” then you’re a genius.

No one can deny that Chris Pratt is a hot commodity right now, and him riding on the back of a franchise as big as “Jurassic Park” can only spell one thing: Dollars.

Will the film be any good? I don’t know. Will it make an Airbus A380 load of money? Yes, Sir.

7. FURIOUS 7

Now that I have regained consciousness, I must say, this movie isn’t number 7 on the list because I think it’s the 7th most anticipated film of 2015. It’s number 7 on the list because it has the number “7” in its title. I know what you’re thinking; “Why isn’t ‘The Hateful Eight’ number 8 on the list?” The answer; I’m a hypocrite.

The untimely death of Paul Walker increased the audience’s anticipation of this movie a hundred fold. I myself cannot wait to see the CGI work they used to recreate Paul Walker’s face.

6. THE HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY PART 2

JENNIFER LAWRENCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! IU&%v%!#@$VCy^&*t^gb8(j;””>o**& IU&%v%!#@$VCy^&*t^gb8(j;””>o**&hn*&*&*&

5. 50 SHADES OF GREY

This is a movie that personally (persona- personally) I’m not looking forward, but I have to put it up here because around half of the earth’s population would say otherwise.

It’s yet another bestselling novel to movie adaptation. What more can I say? Oh, yeah! There’s BDSM sex. Lots of it. Looooooooooooooooooooooooottttttttttttttttttssssssssssssss

4. THE HATEFUL EIGHT

When Tarantino says he’s making a new movie, the world of film gets shaken to its core. The man is a living legend, a genius with a filmography most filmmakers would be envious of. The main reason why The Hateful Eight is on this list is because it almost didn’t happen. Tarantino pulled the movie after a draft of the script got leaked. Thankfully, Jehovah Jireh that I know changed his heart as only He can, and now we’re getting Tarantino’s second spaghetti western in a row. Is it Christmas or is it Christmas?

 3. SPECTRE

For over a year, we all knew it as Bond 24, but when the official title was announced, it opened up a big fat can of worms and anticipation. If you’re a fan of Bond, you should know SPECTRE. It was HYDRA before there was HYDRA. Add to the fact that Sam Mendez is returning to direct and coming off the immense success that was SKYFALL, there’s no surprise why there’s a lot of fanfare surrounding this picture. Little is known of the premise for now, but giving how great Sam Mendez and the entire cast were in SKYFALL, there’s no need to be worried.

Unlike a lot of people, I like this new darker, realistic Bond and I love Daniel Craig’s take on the character. Casino Royale is my favourite Bond film to date. I digress.

There’s an A-List director with an A-List cast, and with SPECTRE there’s an A-List story in there too.

2. AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON

The only reason why this isn’t at the top stop is because it isn’t Star Wars. Simple as that. There’s literally no stopping Marvel. I mean, they made a movie about a raccoon and a tree and it was brilliant. A RACCOON AND A FRIGGIN TREE! They’re on a high speed train heading to Awesome City where by now, Kevin Feige should have been given the key to the city… Where was i? I think I lost my train of thought.

Back to Age of Ultron. After the cinematic event that was The Avengers and with Marvel announcing their movie slate up till the end of Phase 3, everyone in the world, geek or not is uber pumped to see this movie. coupled with the release of the best movie trailer known to man, no one is going to miss this movie.

If all that didn’t convince you, I’ve got six words for you: There are no strings on me.

1. STAR WARS EPISODE VII: THE FORCE AWAKENS

News of this movie first propped up in 2012 when Disney acquired Lucasfilm and it got everybody from Timbuktu to Schenectady buzzing. All year, everyone’s been tracking the progress of the J.J. Abrams helmed space opera and when the first teaser finally dropped, it was met with worldwide frenzy.

The movie is rumored to be set 30 years after the events of Episode VI and follows a new trio of heroes along with Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker), Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia) and Harrison Ford (Han Solo) reprising their roles.

Star Wars is numero uno on my list because it is cinema royalty, and I can’t wait to see it, lens flares and all.
