Most Anticipated Movies 2014 Screen Rants 20 Most Anticipated Movies of 2014

Despite a few expensive flops scattered throughout the year, 2013′s total box office haul managed to narrowly beat 2012′s, thanks to big-budget franchise sequels like Iron Man 3, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and Despicable Me 2 – the latter of which also broke the record for home video sales. It was another year of comic book films and sequels grabbing the attention of moviegoing audiences and 2014 looks to follow the trend.

The Screen Rant editorial staff has perused through all of the films debuting in theaters in 2014 and narrowed down a list of 20 that we’re most anticipating. From familiar franchises, ambitious comic book projects and a few interesting adaptations – 2014 is looking to be another promising year for movie geeks.

Keep in mind, these are not films we necessarily expect to be the “best” – these are movies at the time of this publication (some don’t even have a trailer yet!) that we are most excited to see and cover on the site. They’re genre films we discuss and analyze most on Screen Rant and ones we hope to enjoy along with our readers and podcast listeners. Let’s begin our countdown of the 20 movies we’re anticipating most in 2014.

20. The Hobbit: There and Back Again

The Hobbit 3 There and Back Again Most Anticipated Movies 2014 570x285 Screen Rants 20 Most Anticipated Movies of 2014

Release Date: December 17, 2014
Director: Peter Jackson
Cast: Benedict Cumberbatch, Evangeline Lilly, Luke Evans, Ian McKellen, Martin Freeman, Orlando Bloom, Richard Armitage

After continued mixed reviews and a drop at the box office with 2013′s The Desolation of Smaug, Peter Jackson needs to knock it out of the park with the trilogy-closing third installment in the drawn-out adaptation of The Hobbit. With the return of the incredibly animated and voiced Smaug and an epic war about to be had, we are excited to see how The Hobbit leads into The Fellowship of The Ring and hope it can make up for the lower points of its predecessors.

19. Edge of Tomorrow

Edge of Tomorrow Most Anticipated Movies 2014 570x285 Screen Rants 20 Most Anticipated Movies of 2014

Release Date: June 6, 2014
Director: Doug Liman
Cast: Bill Paxton, Emily Blunt, Tom Cruise

Matt Damon powered up in a powered exoskeleton combat suit in 2013 with Neill Blomkamp’s Elysium - and in 2014, Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt will do the same in a war against alien invaders (and time). The footage at Comic-Con and the film’s cast make Edge of Tomorrow an interesting sci-fi followup, albeit an unrelated one, to 2013′s Oblivion - which we dug here at Screen Rant.

-

18. The Expendables 3

The Expendables 3 Most Anticipated Movies 2014 570x285 Screen Rants 20 Most Anticipated Movies of 2014

Release Date: August 15, 2014
Director: Patrick Hughes
Cast: Antonio Banderas, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Dolph Lundgren, Harrison Ford, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Mel Gibson, Sylvester Stallone, Wesley Snipes

While The Expendables 2 left much to be desired, seeing even more action stars sign up for the three-quel with a new director at the helm has us excited at the potential for improved action, and more plain ol ’80s action fun.

-

17. Transcendence

Transcendence Most Anticipated Movies 2014 570x285 Screen Rants 20 Most Anticipated Movies of 2014

Release Date: April 18, 2014

Cast: Cillian Murphy, Johnny Depp, Kate Mara, Morgan Freeman, Paul Bettany, Rebecca Hall

With a cast of elite talent, Hollywood A-List cinematographer Wally Pfister – a regular on Christopher Nolan’s works – makes his directorial debut with Transcendence – a story about a dying scientist (Depp) who manages to put his mind into a computer to become all-powerful.

-

16. Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit

Jack Ryan Shadow Recruit Most Anticipated Movies 2014 570x285 Screen Rants 20 Most Anticipated Movies of 2014

Release Date: January 17, 2014
Director: Kenneth Branagh
Cast: Chris Pine, Keira Knightley, Kenneth Branagh, Kevin Costner

One of author Tom Clancy’s most beloved characters (Jack Ryan) returns to the big screen in this franchise reboot. Chris Pine (Star Trek) takes over the role previously occupied by Alec Baldwin, Harrison Ford and Ben Affleck in what Paramount hopes to be the beginning of a large franchise, continuing forward with Kevin Costner’s character William Harper (who, assuming that things work out, will appear in the spinoff Without Remorse by Christopher McQuarrie).

-

15. 22 Jump Street

22 Jump Street Most Anticipated Movies 2014 570x285 Screen Rants 20 Most Anticipated Movies of 2014

Release Date: June 13, 2014
Directors: Phil Lord & Chris Miller
Cast: Channing Tatum, Ice Cube, Jonah Hill

An easily desired sequel to the hilarious and successful adaptation of 21 Jump Street sees the comedic re-teaming of Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill. This time moving across the street to a new HQ and again going undercover, the pair finally get to attend college – and again try to fit in.

-

14. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Most Anticipated Movies 2014 570x285 Screen Rants 20 Most Anticipated Movies of 2014

Release Date: August 8, 2014
Director: Jonathan Liebesman
Cast: Megan Fox, Will Arnett, William Fichtner, Whoopi Goldberg

Although we’ve yet to see any official marketing materials on the latest live-action adaption of the beloved Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the project which once dropped “teenage” and “mutant” from its title is seemingly back on track to deliver what fans love most about the green warriors.

-

13. Need for Speed

Need For Speed Most Anticipated Movies 2014 570x285 Screen Rants 20 Most Anticipated Movies of 2014

Release Date: March 14, 2014
Director: Scott Waugh
Cast: Aaron Paul, Dominic Cooper, Imogen Poots, Michael Keaton

With Fast & Furious 7 delayed a year and the franchise’s last two installments favoring borderline-superhuman, over-the-top action sequences, Disney and Dreamworks attempt a risky video game adaptation of a property that generally doesn’t embrace story or characters but do so with a desire to deliver authentic, real-life stunts with supercars. Tapping Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul to lead the chase and having seen one of these action sequences shot up close and personal on set, we’re excited to see if Need For Speed can break the molds of both the racing and video game genres.

-

12. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1

Hunger Games Mockingjay Most Anticipated Movies 2014 570x285 Screen Rants 20 Most Anticipated Movies of 2014

Release Date: November 21, 2014
Director: Francis Lawrence
Cast: Donald Sutherland, Elizabeth Banks, Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Stanley Tucci, Woody Harrelson

Director Francis Lawrence managed to not only deliver a successful followup to the smash hit The Hunger Games, but managed to do so by improving upon nearly every aspect of the original film. Catching Fire knocked it out of the park and we’re dying to see where Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) takes us next.

-

11. The LEGO Movie

The LEGO Movie Most Anticipated Movies 2014 570x285 Screen Rants 20 Most Anticipated Movies of 2014

Release Date: February 7, 2014
Director: Phil Lord & Chris Miller
Cast: Channing Tatum, Chris Pratt, Cobie Smulders, Elizabeth Banks, Jonah Hill, Liam Neeson, Morgan Freeman, Will Ferrell

Who would have thought that a movie could be made based on LEGO toys and licensed properties? Phil Lord and Chris Miller blew us away at Comic-Con with footage from The LEGO Movie and again with its trailers. Combing Robot Chicken-esque stop-motion animation and a hilarious cast, concept and story, The LEGO Movie is one of the more unique and exciting new franchises to hit cinemas in 2014.

-

10. How To Train Your Dragon 2

How To Train Your Dragon 2 Most Anticipated Movies 2014 570x285 Screen Rants 20 Most Anticipated Movies of 2014

Release Date: June 13, 2014
Director: Dean DeBlois
Cast: Cate Blanchett, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Gerard Butler, Jay Baruchel, Jonah Hill, Kristen Wiig

One of the most fun and heartwarming animated films in recent memory, How to Train Your Dragon managed to offer the closest experience to actually flying while sitting in a theater seat ever – even more than James Cameron’s Avatar, arguably. The entire voice cast, and our favorite dragon Toothless return for the eagerly anticipated followup.

-

9. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes Most Anticipated Movies 2014 570x285 Screen Rants 20 Most Anticipated Movies of 2014

Release Date: July 11, 2014
Director: Matt Reeves
Cast: Andy Serkis, Gary Oldman, Jason Clarke, Keri Russell

We’re still bitter about Andy Serkis not getting some sort of Academy Award nomination for his incredible motion-capture performance as Caeser in Rise of the Planet of the Apes. In the followup, which takes place many years later after the catastrophic events of RiseDawn of the Planet of the Apes introduces a new cast of human characters to surround the scene-stealing Serkis.

-

8. The Raid 2

The Raid 2 Most Anticipated Movies 2014 570x285 Screen Rants 20 Most Anticipated Movies of 2014

Release Date: March 28, 2014
Director: Gareth Evans
Cast: Donny Alamsyah, Iko Uwais, Raiden Integra, Yayan Ruhian

Gareth Evans impressed us with The Raid: Redemption and its mindblowing action sequences, and the fact that its getting a sequel is reason enough to get excited about seeing more of Rama (Iko Uwais) kicking butt on screen. The Raid 2: Berandal sees Uwais (and director Evans) return for the main role in a story that takes place just hours after the original.

-

7. The Amazing Spider-Man 2

The Amazing Spider Man 2 Most Anticipated Movies 2014 570x285 Screen Rants 20 Most Anticipated Movies of 2014

Release Date: May 2, 2014
Director: Marc Webb
Cast: Andrew Garfield, Dane DeHaan, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Paul Giamatti, Sally Field

While The Amazing Spider-Man brought us a wonderful cast, its story was lacking and in some respects, incomplete. With the ‘setup’ out of the way and plans for multiple sequels and spinoffs officially announced by Sony, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 has high expectations and a cast array of characters from the comics all (seemingly) carefully placed for the future of the series. With so much riding in the next Peter Parker adventure, we can’t help but get excited about the potential of another Marvel Cinematic Universe.

-

6. Transformers 4

Transformers 4 Age of Extinction Most Anticipated Movies 2014 570x285 Screen Rants 20 Most Anticipated Movies of 2014

Release Date: June 27, 2014
Director: Michael Bay
Cast: Jack Reynor, Kelsey Grammer, Mark Wahlberg, Nicola Peltz, Stanley Tucci

Despite saying otherwise for quite sometime, Michael Bay decided to return to the director’s chair for Transformers: Age of Extinction. The franchise’s fourth live-action installment introduces new lead human characters led by Mark Wahlberg as well as plenty of new Cybertronian vehicles, including the fan-favorite Dinobots. After Bay improved upon the action sequences and visuals for Transformers: Dark of the Moon, we’re amped to see more of Optimus Prime and company destroying more villains in the followup. Maybe this time we’ll get to know some of the supporting bots?

-

5. Interstellar

Interstellar Most Anticipated Movies 2014 570x285 Screen Rants 20 Most Anticipated Movies of 2014

Release Date: November 7, 2014
Director: Christopher Nolan
Cast: Anne Hathaway, Casey Affleck, Jessica Chastain, Matthew McConaughey, Michael Caine, Topher Grace, Wes Bentley

With The Dark Knight trilogy behind him and Inception proving director Christopher Nolan’s creativity when it comes to science fiction, it’s impossible to not get excited about Chris Nolan and his brother’s screenplay about astronauts travelling through the first discovered wormhole.

-

4. Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Captain America 2 The Winter Soldier Most Anticipated Movies 2014 570x285 Screen Rants 20 Most Anticipated Movies of 2014

Release Date: April 4, 2014
Directors: Anthony Russo & Joe Russo
Cast: Anthony Mackie, Chris Evans, Cobie Smulders, Robert Redford, Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan

Our insiders told us long ago that the script for Captain America 2 was something to get excited about and when we saw the footage for The Winter Soldier at Comic-Con we couldn’t believe how impressive the action sequences, characters and visuals looked. After Iron Man 3 and Thor: The Dark World attempted to deliver standalone experiences, we’re excited to get back to S.H.I.E.L.D. and the other, less-super heroes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe in a film that’s hyped up to be the bridge between The Avengers and 2015′s The Avengers: Age of Ultron.

-

3. X-Men: Days of Future Past

X Men Days of Future Past Most Anticipated Movies 2014 570x285 Screen Rants 20 Most Anticipated Movies of 2014

Release Date: May 23, 2014
Director: Bryan Singer
Cast: Hugh Jackman, Ian McKellen, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, Patrick Stewart, Peter Dinklage

X-Men: Days of Future Past serves not only as a sequel to X-Men: First Class, but as a followup to the original X-Men movie trilogy that brings almost every hero and villain back. Bryan Singer returns to the director’s chair to tell a time travel story that has the potential to “fix” the continuity of the long-running superhero franchise and help launch all sorts of sequels and spinoffs. In fact, a sequel is already in the works with a confirmed release date in 2016.

-

2. Guardians of the Galaxy

Guardians of the Galaxy Most Anticipated Movies 2014 570x285 Screen Rants 20 Most Anticipated Movies of 2014

Release Date: August 1, 2014
Director: James Gunn
Cast: Benicio Del Toro, Bradley Cooper, Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Djimon Hounsou, Glenn Close, John C. Reilly, Karen Gillan, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Vin Diesel, Zoe Saldana

The riskiest and most obscure project from Marvel Studios to date, Guardians of the Galaxy attempts to not only take the Marvel Cinematic Universe into space, but aims to do so with several sets of all-new heroes and villains and an all-new cast. Having seen the teaser footage at Comic-Con and having read all of the comics writer-director James Gunn is drawing inspiration from, we’re pumped that Marvel is taking a chance on this property.

-

1. Godzilla

Godzilla Most Anticipated Movies 2014 570x285 Screen Rants 20 Most Anticipated Movies of 2014

Release Date: May 16, 2014
Director: Gareth Edwards
Cast: Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Bryan Cranston, Elizabeth Olsen, Juliette Binoche, Ken Watanabe, Sally Hawkins

Two years in a row, Warner Bros and Legendary stole the show at Comic-Con with footage for the reboot of Godzilla, and with an all-star cast and amazing special effects – not to mention a variety of monsters for Godzilla to battle – we’re most excited about the return of Godzilla to the big screen. The official Godzilla trailer helped reinforce our anticipation.

-

Honorable Mentions

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.

These are just our picks so make sure to tell us what movies you’re getting ready to geek out about in 2014!

  1. Interstellar
    Guardians Of the Galaxy
    Transcendence

    Period !

    • forgot Dumb & Dumber To

  2. Not as excited as I thought I’d be for Spidey 2. I think it’s making me nervous because of how many villains are in it, plus I REALLY don’t want them to screw up the Norman Osborn/Green Goblin story. I’m definitely gonna go see it though. I really hope it’s a blast.
    But in terms of movies I’m most excited for, I’d say Jack Ryan, Interstellar, X-Men, Guardians, and Cap 2. Hehe, can you tell I’m a Marvel fan?

  3. My list, only two represented Rob’s list

    1. Interstellar, Nolan, enough said

    2. Inherent Vice, I’m a Paul Thomas Anderson fanboy and Phoenix looks hysterical in early photos

    3. The Hobbit 3, The other two were really fun

    4. A Million Ways to Die in the West, Seth MacFarlane gets me (as long as its for less than 2 hours)

    5. The Monuments Men, I still have some faith in this one

    • For the record, this isn’t my list. It’s a compilation of 7-8 of our team.

  4. For me,

    Godzilla
    X-Men & Captain America share #2 spot
    The Hobbit: There And Back Again
    Guardians of the Galaxy
    The Lego Movie & How to Train Your Dragon 2 share #5

    couldn’t care less for Interstellar, RoboCop has me curious but I will wait for the reviews before seeing it. Age of Extinction will also be subject to the same treatment. TMNT can go away for all I care, it really doesn’t look all that faithful to the TMNT we know (so far).

  5. IN NOLAN WE TRUST

  6. Nice list, I’m definitely surprised with some of the choices though. Figured The Hobbit would be higher up with Transformers and TMNT making the bottom. I wonder where The Fast and the Furious would be if it was still being released in 2014. Anyway, my list would have to be:

    10) Transcendence
    9) 22 Jump Street
    8) LEGO
    7) The Hobbit: There and Back Again
    6) How to Train Your Dragon 2
    5) Dawn of the Planet of the Apes
    4) Interstellar
    3) X-Men Days of Future Past
    2) Godzilla
    1) The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (Looks awesome!)

    I’m a huge fan of TMNT but so far, even without a trailer, I’m really not excited for the film. Nothing intrigues me, whether it’s the actors, writers, director or producers. Of course I’ll try my best not to pre-judge the film but I’m just not holding my breath for it being any good.

    One honorable mention would have to be The Guardians of the Galaxy. That little leaked comic con trailer looked fantastic!

    • I’m also looking forward to ‘Gone Girl’. David Fincher is an amazing director.

      • Neighbors as well aha.

    • If it was my own list, I wouldn’t even have The Hobbit 3 – the first two were major disappointments IMO.

      • I thought an Unexpected Journey was a disappointment but Desolation of Smaug was pretty good. It wasn’t at the same heights as The Two Towers or anything close but it was entertaining enough. Hopefully you like There and Back Again a bit more!

  7. Well, I’ll be watching Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit; Dawn of the Planet of the Apes; Amazing Spider-Man 2; Interstellar; Captain America: The Winter Soldier; X-Men: Days of Future Past; Guardians of the Galaxy; Godzilla; and Robocop off of this list. I have my doubts about Guardians in particular being any good, and a few worries about some of the others as well, but we’ll give ‘em all a watch, and see what develops.

  8. Might as well just say “Every highly publicized big-budget genre movie”.
    What about Grand Budapest Hotel, or The Boxtrolls, or Only Lovers Left Alive, Gone Girl, Big Hero 6, Exodus? Movies that have trailers and interesting hooks and directors to get excited over, not flippin’ Transformers 4 and Ninja Turtles.

    • Thanks man, added Grand Budapest Hotel, Only Lovers Left Alive, Gone Girl, Big Hero 6, Exodus to the list of projects i will watch.

      • Don’t forget Boxtrolls. Laika is made of love.

    • I hear you. It would have been nice to see something interesting on there besides the usual big budget cartoon/comic book/sequel film.

    • not all are big budget… The Raid 2 is only cost US 3 Million… :-p

  9. Transformers most definitely deserves to make the list. Bad direction won’t keep viewers from giving it a standing ovation. Transformers is the type of film you watch with a mass audience on a big screen, not in front of the laptop with your bestie & a packet of potato chips.

    Btw… Why is Noah not on the list?

    • Noah didn’t make my own list because the trailer looks terrible IMO.

  10. The super hero films, plus Terminator, plus TMNT, plus Transformers…
    Nothing else matters :)

    • Sorry, I wanted to say The Expendables instead of Terminator. I got carried away with a lot of T´s.

  11. At this point its definetely like this:
    1) The Amazing Spider-Man 2
    2) X-Men Days of Future Past
    3) Godzilla
    4) Dawn of the Planet of the Apes
    5) How to Train Your Dragon 2

    Honoroble mentions:
    - Interstellar (i know almost nothing about the movie, not buying hype based on nothing)
    - Cap 2 (based on trailer should be atleast better than the first one)

  12. Interstellar(Nolan and McConaughey…MY GOD IS ALL I HAVE TO SAY), Guardians of the Galaxy, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, X-Men: Days of Future Past, and IDK after that honestly. Prob Godzilla and Amazing Spider-Man 2. Have to look up the “Oscar” movies coming up this year.

    Now 2015…that is gonna be some list…

  13. Agree with most of the movies on this list except TMNT. Really hoping the Wachowskis make a killer comeback with Jupiter – Speed Racer was crap, Cloud Atlas OK. No Pixar movie this year, so Dragon 2 will rule animation 2014. And for the arty perv in me, Nymphomaniac!!!!

  14. My honourable mentions:
    The Equaliser
    Fury
    Sabotage
    Gone Girl
    Hercules: The Thracian Wars
    Sex Tape

  15. LOL, sh*ts like Lego Movie, TMNT, NEED FOR SPEED !!, Transformers 4, Guardians of the Galaxy are in better positions then Hobbit 3. LOL LOL and LOL

    • Hells ya they are!

    • Have you never played a Lego game? They’re hilarious and give me high hopes for the movie.

  16. LOL, movies like Leho Movie, TMNT, NEED FOR SPEED !!, Transformers 4, Guardians of the Galaxy are in better positions then Hobbit 3. LOL LOL and LOL

  17. so i guess you (the edtitors od screenrant) only like superhero movies

    i mean where are the new movies from pta ,fincher,wes anderson,beneth miller?

    • Not among the movies we’re most excited to see in theaters I suppose.

      Doesn’t mean they won’t be awesome or ones we see. Just means they’re not ones we’re excited to see (and in some cases, cover) most.

  18. my top ten for 2014 are

    1. X-Men Days of Future Past
    2. The Expendables 3
    3. Noah and Nonstop
    4. Interstellar and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes
    5. Captain America 2
    6. The Hunger Games 3 and How to Train Your Dragon 2
    7. The Hobbit 3 and Robocop and Night at the Museum 3
    8. The Amazing Spiderman 2 and I, Frankenstein
    9. Dumb and Dumber To and Pompeii
    10. transcendence, Godzilla, Transformers 4, Lego Movie

  19. Should be a good year coming up. I’m looking forward to:

    Monuments Men
    Godzilla
    Dawn of the Planet of the Apes
    Gone Girl
    Interstellar
    Fury
    Exodus
    Unbroken
    Foxcather
    And if Jason Reitman’s Men, Women & Children adaptation comes out in 2014, that one too.

    I’ll also check out Hobbit 3 and all the Marvel movies coming out. Maybe Clint Eastwood’s Jersey Boys too – despite my disliking of musicals.

  20. Disappointed that only big box office pop corn flicks made this list.

    David Finchers Gone Giril
    Sussane Biers “Serena”
    “Winters Tale” just because the cast is so impressive,
    Sin City 2
    Paul Thomas Andersons Inherent Vice

    • SR’s all about the big action, geeky, sci-fi movies.

      • In other words…dumbed down cinema right?

        I like the site for some news articles, but you guys seriously need to re-assess what it means to be excited for movies if you include generic looking garbage like Jack Ryan and Need for Speed as movies to get stoked for….to each their own, but come on! ;)

        I’m curious, I wasnt aware of this website when the Twilight movies were rolling out…did those make your most anticipated/ get excited for lists as well?

        • Adnan,

          If you feel that way, SR might not be for you. This is what we cover, what we love and what we spend our time discussing.

  21. X-men DOFP
    Spiderman 2
    Transcendence
    Intersteller
    Godzilla
    Planet of the Apes 2

    what is going on with a sequel to Prometheus, and the remake to Island of dr Moreau?

  22. 1. Interstellar
    2. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes
    3. X-Men: Days of Future Past
    4. Godzilla
    5. The Hobbit: There and Back Again
    6. Transformers 4
    7. 22 Jump Street
    8. Captain America: The Winter Soldier

  23. Definitely some great movies out there. I’m so glad the Lego movie isn’t animated legos. It actually looks like some kid made the stop motion part, which I really like!
    Cap:winter soldier looks pretty awesome, maybe the best phase 2 movie. I’ll wait for a Guardians of the Galaxy trailer too. Man, Spider-man 2 look amazing as well. I can’t wait to see the new origin movies like Transcendence. That looks like a Johnny Depp must see! Interstellar looks ok. I must see more of the actually movie clips before I judge from the multi-past clips in the teaser. I can’t judge a movie from a farm truck driving by some corn…

  24. 1. The Hobbit: There and Back Again
    2. X-Men: Days of Future Past
    3. Godzilla
    4. Jupiter Ascending
    5. Interstellar
    6. Sin City: A Dame To Kill For
    7. Guardians of the Galaxy
    8. How to Train Your Dragon 2
    9. Nymphomaniac
    10. Maleficent

  26. CHECK OUT JOURNEY TO THE WEST

  27. When they get a wider release in the next few weeks I’m pumped to see Inside Llewyn Davis and Her.

    In February I’ll see Lego Movie, Monuments Men, and the Wind Rises.

    In March I’ll see Grand Budapest Hotel.

    In May I’ll see Godzilla, TASM2, and X-Men DOFP.

    In July I’ll see Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.

    And later on I’ll enjoy Nolan’s early Christmas present to me: Interstellar :)

    Those are the ones I’m most excited for. X-Men DOFP is my number one, but I thought I’d list them in order of their release dates.

    • Oh I forgot All you need is Kill (they should have kept that title btw) and the MCU movies!! Those are on my list too…

  28. The LEGO Movie: Because this is the closest you’ll ever get to Wonder Woman on the big screen!
