Early on in 2013 films including Mad Max: Fury Road and Fast & Furious 7 would have easily made Screen Rant’s list of most anticipated movies of 2014 but both have been delayed into the epic release schedule of 2015 – a list which at first glance is even more impressive than what’s coming in 2014.
Still, despite listing our top 20 films here, we began with a list several times as large. It’s never an easy process removing a film from these lists, but it must be done and we wanted to name a few special outliers that we’re excited about but that didn’t quite make the top 20.
Ride Along (January 17, 2014) – one of our favorite funnymen Kevin Hart gets a lead role alongside Ice Cube in Ride Along, one of the few films in January worth getting excited about.
RoboCop (February 12, 2014) – taking a weak release date in 2014 after a delay, RoboCop has much to overcome in addition to the ’80s remake stigma, but what we’ve seen in footage, the trailers and cast so far has successfully managed to pique our interest against all odds.
Veronica Mars (March 14, 2014) – The wonderful but short-lived TV series starring Kristen Bell gets a film adaptation thanks to the power of fans and the Kickstarter crowdfunding service.
Jupiter Ascending (July 18, 2014) - Andy Wachowski & Lana Wachowski - and their visual eyes – take a key summer weekend to take moviegoers into an interesting future where humans are the lower class and Channing Tatum plays a genetically engineered super soldier on a mission to save Mila Kunis, the destined savior of humanity.
Sin City: A Dame To Kill For (August 22, 2014) – we’ve yet to see a trailer, but the sequel too-long-in-the-making brings back much of the original cast along with its signature black-and-white visual style for another Hard R set of intertwining stories.
