Top three of 2015!!
Note: I will not be putting Furious 7 in here (even if it should), because it was already in my 2014 post, with the release date changed (remembering Paul Walker) after that post was published. For the sake of giving opportunity for other movies, it will not be included in this Top 10. But just for you to know, if it had, it would have been in number 6, in between Mission: Impossible 5 & Terminator: Genisys.
Top three...here we go!!
3. Spectre (November 6)
The most famous british spy in the big screen. "007" will be back with his 24th (wow, what a number) appearance. Daniel Craig has made Bond into his own with his recent movies, and Skyfall is just awesome. With a game-changer story like never before, yet still has the excellent action sequences, and a lot of fun and laughs along the way, Skyfall was, in my eye, the defining Bond movie for my generation. Repeating a quote of mine on the previous post but just as true, if this next film is half as good as this one, then the Bond franchise is in very safe hands.
More to add to the excitement is the recent news of the title, the car & the cast. What intrigues me the most is the casting of Christoph Waltz & Andrew Scott. If I have only seen Inglorious Basterds and Sherlock series, it'll already give me the utmost confidence of what kinds of villain they can portray. And with the return of SPECTRE, this next Bond flick couldn't get any more exciting.
2. Star Wars: The Force Awakens (December 18)
The most famous science-fiction movie franchise ever - with earnings close to the billion per film (with Phantom Menace passing the mark) - and whose legacy spreads beyond the films, reaching out to the games, animations, novels, and even comics - is back! I have always been a Star Wars fan since I was a kid, especially with the movies and the video games. A lightsaber has always been my dream fictional weapon, and if anything, fight sequences of lightsaber duels are beyond awesome. With the speed, agility, and the awesome clashing sounds of the sabers, these duels alone would be enough for me to see Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The only thing holding me back so far is the all new cast, most of whom I'm still less familiar with, casting a tiny glimpse of doubt. But with J.J. Abrams (his work, the flawless Star Trek Into Darkness) at the helm, and some of the original cast returning, I have nothing but pure excitement and anticipation for when this movie comes out.
1. Avengers: Age of Ultron (May 1)
This was never in question, ever. Being a longtime Marvel fan by blood (figuratively, of course), there can be nothing I anticipate more than this. To see these awesome superheroes band together again, now with a villain that is a true nemesis to the Avengers. The first film was a tremendous success, and I have every confidence that this will replicate that feat. Joss Whedon is a true genius and does this as a passionate fan as well. He challenged and overcame the impossible with The Avengers, and now he's up for more with this super anticipated sequel. With an awesome trailer (& several sneak peeks) out, I can with sheer confidence claim that this is my top most anticipated (and I hope, the best) blockbuster of 2015.
-Jupiter Ascending (February 6)
-Kingsman: The Secret Service (February 13)
-The Divergent Series: Insurgent (March 20)
-Furious 7 (April 3)
-Mad Max: Fury Road (May 15)
-Tomorrowland (May 22)
-Inside Out (June 19)
-Pan (July 17)
-The Fantastic Four (August 7)
-Hitman: Agent 47 (August 28)
-Hotel Transylvania 2 (September 25)
-London Has Fallen (October 2)
There are certainly many other films to look forward to...these being the ones that quickly caught my eye and are among my top anticipated ones...
Yet these dates are by no means certain, as changes are bound to happen occasionally...
However, 2015 does seem to be quite exciting when we make a list like this...
