2015 has some brilliant movies in store with some important sequels and Disney taking a new approach of their classics, it is an exciting time for movie lovers.
It has already been dubbed ‘the new Mean Girls’ by many critics and the trailer certainly shows that it is the movie you must see for 2015. It is about a Senior student who wants to change the labels in high school after she discovers that she has been labelled the DUFF, standing for Designated Ugly Fat Friend (Now I know what I was labeled in school and now in University!) to her prettier and more popular friends. It stars Mae Whitman and Disney’s Bella Thorne. I for one can not wait to see this and see how she got rid of that label, I will be taking notes! It hits cinemas in February.[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ci7eKlNRiuw&w=560&h=315]
50 Shades of Grey
Also out in February is the most anticipated movie in the history of movies, I am sure. It is of course, E.L. James’s book ’50 Shades of Grey’ hitting the big screens across the world. Okay, so if you are of that minority who haven’t read the book (like who hasn’t read it?!), here is what it is about. Anastasia Steele, who is a literature student, goes innocently to interview Mr. Christian Grey. She meets the beautiful and very intimidating man and finds herself thinking about him, even after the interview. She realizes she wants him, and wanting to get closer to him. Christian also wants Ana, but on his own terms. Christian demands to be in control of everything. Ana begins to hesitates when she discovers Christian has certain tastes – he is a Dominant and wants Ana to be his Submissive. If you haven’t read the book, I won’t say anymore! I’ll leave it as a surprise. One thing for sure is, I am certainly looking forward to this movie and very excited to see Jamie Dornan as Christian Grey. Only 40 days to go![youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SfZWFDs0LxA&w=560&h=315]
Pitch Perfect 2
The Bellas are back! Pitch Perfect 2 is the sequel to the smash hit Pitch Perfect from 2012. The movie is about the Barden Bellas entering an international acapella competition that no previous American group has ever won. They plan to change that! If it is anything like Pitch Perfect, it is going to be hilarious, quirky and hopefully lots of scenes with Jesse (hottie alert!). If anything, it will make you want to be part of the Bellas. It stars Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson and Skylar Astin. The movie is due out in May.[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KBwOYQd21TY&w=560&h=315]
Into The Woods
The first of the two Disney adapted movies for 2015. After years of unsuccessful attempts by other movie producers trying and failing to adapt the play ‘Into The Woods’ into film, Disney decided to produce it. The movie is inspired by the classic fairy tales ‘Little Red Riding Hood’, ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’, ‘Rapunzel’ and ‘Cinderella’. The movie has a star studded cast with Meryl Streep, Anna Kendrick, James Corden, Chris Pine and Johnny Depp to name a few. Although it is a Disney movie, it wouldn’t be a typical fairy tale movie, so refrain from bringing small children as some scenes might scare them! Movie is out January 9th.[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7pjy5MK1X70&w=560&h=315]
The second film Disney will release in 2015 is the Cinderella. Cinderella was the 12th movie Disney released originally back in 1950 and now they have brought it to life. The plot of the movie largely resembles the original Cinderella fairy tale but has a few new twists. Lily James plays Cinderella and if you are a fan of Downton Abbey, her face maybe familiar. She plays Lady Rose MacClare in the series. Richard Madden plays Prince Charming. Movie is set to come out in March.[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LfR8Su4ulX0&w=560&h=315]
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2
The final installment of The Hunger Games is due out in November. Katniss Everdeen, the ‘Mockingjay’ leads District 13 to a revolution against the Capitol. With the first part ending on a cliffhanger, I can not contain my excitement for this movie. Even though I have read the books (I read all 3 books in 3 days!) and know what happens, I am curious to see how it is adapted to the big screen. Plus my favourite Jennifer Lawrence is in it. Also, Josh Hutcherson has been a crush of mine since like forever so I love seeing him in movies 😛 If you haven’t read the books or seen the previous movies, read or watch them now. You won’t regret it. There is no trailer for this movie yet.
This will be the second of John Green’s book to be adjusted to the big screen, with ‘The Fault In Our Stars’ being the first. Paper Towns is about Quentin and his friends go on a road trip to find his neighbour and love from a far, Margo. Margo has disappeared and left clues, only for Quentin to solve. Typically, I love the book and have high hopes for this movie. Margo will be played by model Cara Delevingne in her first starring role and Nat Wolff will play Quentin. It is due out in June.
Of course, there is many more movies due out in 2015 but I’ll be here all night talking about them. So grab the popcorn and your friends or family and head to the cinema! Enjoy.
