The biggest films of 2015 – it’s going to be a blockbuster year according to film buff Gavin Miller, here are some of his top picks.
AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON
Released: April 24
After the sensational box office success of Marvel’s inaugural Avengers film in 2012 – Josh Whedon’s sequel is expected to break the bank.
When Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr) tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and its up to the The Avengers – now including siblings Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) – to stop the villainous Ultron (voiced by James Spader) from enacting his terrible plans.
Released: June 12
Jurassic Park finally gets a fourth film after a 14-year hiatus – and potentially the start of a new trilogy – with The Guardians of the Galaxy’s Chris Pratt along for the ride.
Steven Spielberg returns in an executive production capacity for the movie, which sees John Hammond’s vision of a fully functioning dinosaur theme park being realised on Isla Nublar – but when a new attraction is introduced after declining visitor rates it backfires horribly.
Released: October 23
Daniel Craig’s James Bond and director Sam Mendes have a tall order to better the highly-acclaimed Skyfall – but bringing back SPECTRE is a good start.
The classic adversarial organisation looks to tie-up the loose ends – remember Mr White? – from Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace, with new faces including Oscar-winning Christoph Waltz (Django Unchained) and Dave ‘The Animal’ Bautista (Guardians of the Galaxy).
STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS
Released: December 18
This is arguably the year’s most highly-anticipated movie – as the man who re-ignited Star Trek brings Star Wars back to the big-screen.
JJ Abrams has brought the old guard back from the originals – Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher – as a new generation gets to experience a continuation of the biggest movie phenomenon of all-time.
Note to Mr Abrams: Please make this as amazing as the original trilogy.
