This will mark the fourth film of the Jurassic franchise with an all-new park and all new dinosaurs. There are two things you need to know about this movie and they are: 1. Chris Pratt 2. Dinosaurs. On Isla Nebula, the Jurassic World theme park has opened up and looks like a futuristic Sea-World. Everything’s gravy, until the scientists decide to create a hybrid-monster of a dinosaur and all hell breaks loose. The biggest failure from the get-go of this film is the lack of Jeff Goldblum, but we’re still crossing our fingers for a cameo.

Arnold wasn’t kidding when he said, “I’ll be back.” In the fifth installment of the Terminator series, Schwarzenegger reprises his role as The Terminator to battle the new model sent by Skynet, who’re up to their old tricks attacking the resistance from both the past and the present. With a slew of new actors and Alan Taylor at the helm (Thor: The Dark World, Game of Thrones),Genisys might just be a winner.

Marvel is bringing us one of its tiniest heroes to the big screen this year. Ant-Man is a guy who can shrink to, you guessed it, the size of an ant. Scientist Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) enlists the help of the thief Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) to help him safeguard the Ant-Man technology from outside threats and essentially save the Earth. While this won’t be one of Marvel’s best films, we’re guessing it will still be worth the ticket.

The latest sci-fi film from Ridley Scott is based on Andy Weir’s 2012 book of the same name. On a manned mission to Mars, one astronaut was left behind by his crew, presumably dead after an intense storm. But Mark Watney (Matt Damon) is alive and well, attempting to survive and get a signal back to Earth for rescue. With the popularity of space films and an all-star cast, we’re bound to see Scott pull off all the stops with this one.
Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens
Releases December 18th
The most-anticipated film of the year, hands down, with a score of returning favorites reprising their roles and a host of new characters, we’re finally getting a look into the future post Return of the Jedi. We have high hopes for the magic that Disney and J.J. Abrams have been working on for this film and cannot wait to find out more about that new, fancy light-saber.
That’s just a small taste of the films hitting the screen this year and plenty of others are worthy of attention. What’re you most excited to see?
