I’m not one to make a ton of lists on here. I have them on and off when I feel the desire for it. In fact, it all comes down to how I’m a really indecisive person and making choices are really difficult. I like to give everything chances, even if they don’t quite appeal to me, even if I know that I won’t like it. Who knows, right? I’m all for something being a pleasant surprise. Every year I see a bunch of these most anticipated movie lists go up and I always want to do one. I’m sure the 2013 and 2014 one is buried in my drafts somewhere.
One of my personal goals (that I didn’t talk about) is not procrastinating in 2015 (and forever, if at all possible). So, here it is! I doubt I’ll get to see all of these. I usually get about 12 theatre visits a year or I try for once a month. We’ll see how this year goes 😉
I’ll try to do this in order of release date according to the upcoming schedule on the Cinema Montreal site.
1. Blackhat (January 16)
Chris Hemsworth, Leehom Wang, Hong Kong and Cybercrime? Count me in!
2. Mortdecai (January 23)
Johnny Depp, what more can I say?
I haven’t actually watched the trailer because I don’t usually watch a lot of them But I love Johnny Depp’s acting.
He always is a highlight of even the not so good movies.
3. Jupiter Ascending (February 6)
I’ve been anticipating this movie since 2014 then it got pushed to 2015 release and still, I remain hopeful.
Channing, Mila, space-ish setting. That just screams the sort of movie I love.
4. In The Heart of the Sea (
March 13 Update: Dec. 11)
Chris Hemsworth, Sea, and a classics adaptation: All works for me.
Now, just to read Moby Dick before this releases 😉
5. Cinderella (March 13)
Disney. Cinderella. Cate Blanchett. Hell Yeah! 🙂
6. Furious 7 (April 3)
I’m a HUGE Fast & Furious fan. No further reasons needed.
On a side note, I’m probably going to marathon the first 6 before I go see this one 🙂
7. Avengers: Age of Ultron (May 1)
I’m a die hard Avengers fan but I have to admit that the Avengers have a really good thing going.
I love the humor, action and everything so I’m in!
8. Tomorrowland (May 22)
Disney. Britt Robertson. The premise. I love it all 🙂 This looks awesome!
9. Jurassic World (June 12)
Chris Pratt and Jurassic Park sequel! I love dinosaurs 🙂
10. Inside Out (June 19)
I have to admit I was skeptical about this one at first but its starting to grow on me. Plus, Pixar rarely does wrong.
The premise of emotions and all sounds pretty cool!
11. Ant-Man (July 17)
This one is a last minute addition after I saw the trailer released two days ago.
Paul Rudd hasn’t never caught my eye before but Ant-Man trailer looks really fun.
Plus, I’m starting to never doubt what Marvel can come up with. So far they’ve had a pretty awesome run.
12. Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials (September 18)
No trailer for this one yet (at least I couldn’t find one). I loved Maze Runner in 2014. It was one of the better movie adaptations I’ve seen.
Dylan O’Brien is fantastic as Thomas. I just finished reading Scorch Trials and the book review will go up soon.
As much as I’m anticipating this, I have a little reservation as to how excited I am because of how they set up the first one.
13. The Walk (October 2)
I walked past The Walk filming in Montreal near my work place. Joseph Gordon-Levitt is in it.
And Robert Zemeckis has made a lot of movies that I like.
14. Spectre (November 6)
I’m not much of a Bond fan but after Skyfall, I’m extremely excited to see this! Daniel Craig is an awesome James Bond 🙂
15. The Good Dinosaur (November 25)
No trailer yet and I’m not even sure what this is about but Pixar, dinosaurs and the cuteness overload of the poster 🙂
Honorable mention (in no particular order): Terminator Genisys, Pitch Perfect 2, Minions, Pan, The Fantastic Four, The Hunger Games-Mockingjay Part 2, Star Wars: Episode VII, Kung Fu Panda 3, Mission Impossible 5, The Jungle Book
Slot 15 was the hardest one to choose because I was playing around with shifting Cinderella, Pan and even Mission Impossible 5 on and off the list so they could very well have replaced The Good Dinosaur. Even The Fantastic Four landed on the list for a brief moment during drafting but it just didn’t have the interest I felt for the rest of these.
That’s my *preliminary* list. What’s yours? What movie(s) do you anticipate in 2015?
