My most anticipated film of the year...and 3 other big blockbusters...what a month it will be!!
Avengers: Age of Ultron (May 1-USA, Apr 23-UK, Apr 23-Singapore)
I have been patiently anticipating this film since the title was announced two years back. The first Avengers film shattered records in the box office and still earns highly positive reviews by critics & fans alike. It even become an inspiration to many - to gather their heroes in the same universe and group them for the bigger battles - DC are doing this, Sony tried this, and even non-superhero franchises are attempting these.
With my favourite band of heroes back, a brilliantly awesome villain in Ultron, the illustrious Joss Whedon at the helm, and some seriously awesome trailers to show for...words cannot even express my excitement for this film.

Mad Max: Fury Road (May 15-USA, May 14-UK, May 14-Singapore)
With this film, I kind of understand its loud and comical tone, but I'm struggling to get a hold of what the plot is about. There are many kinds of post-apocalyptic films, and I'm curious to see how this one could bring about its crazy, explosive action sequences. I have not seen the original Mad Max trilogy, but I don't intend to change that (and maybe I could present my view as a younger, modern audience who wish to be taken into the franchise well with this film). Fury Road does have an exciting array of cast, and some action-packed trailers...and I'm on board for the ride to see what this film has to offer in an amazing month.

Tomorrowland (May 22-USA, May 22-UK, May 21-Singapore)
This film has been under a large veil of secrecy, until the trailer that came out not very long ago. After seeing the trailer, however, I did get slightly disappointed because I don't understand how the connection between Tomorrowland and the real world is. At one point it feels like a direct one (like when in the car), but at other times it looks as if it doesn't (like in George Clooney's character's house, and the dog). But I'm still holding that trust that I may be surprised when I walk into the theatre to watch this, because of Brad Bird (of Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol), of the great cast, and more importantly, some very promising visual effects.

San Andreas (May 29-USA, May 29-UK, May 28-Singapore)
I wasn't initially very excited with this film, but the trailers did show some exciting action sequences & visual effects. I had little interest with the plot, but the cast looks promising, and if they (along with the production team) could deliver, I may find this as another excellent blockbuster in an already excellent month for films.
