I'm not sure we will see again a year of movie awesomeness as 2015 will be. Pirates of Caribbean 5, Star Wars 7, Avengers 2, Superman - Batman movie, Terminator 5, Independence Day 2 - all strong Hollywood licenses - and not to mention the awaited animated Pixar's Inside Out, and many more will be released Summer 2015 - and there is more great ones to come all along the year - and the only thing missing would be an Indiana Jones 5 - although this one seems to be in project too but not for a 2015 release. But when exactly will all these awesome movies be released ? Well, the Studios have choose the dates and here they are so you can mark the dates right now!
"Avengers 2 Age of Ultron" will be the first one to open the Summer season with a release scheduled for May 1, 2015. Joss Whedon directs again and all Avengers of the first film should be back - except apparently Jeremy Renner / Hawkeye - plus two new Avengers heroes Scartlett Witch and The Falcon.
On May 29, Paramount will release "Monsters Truck" directed by Chris Wedge and this one is a new license for Paramount who understood that audiences love movies with cars whether it's real ones - Fast and Furious - or alien looking ones - Transformers - so it might be a sleeper which could do well at the box office...
On June 17 Pixar will release the highly awaited "Inside Out" animated feature, a film told from the perspective of the emotions inside the mind of a little girl. It's a Pete Docter and Jonas Rivera and it sure will be one the most surprising animated movie in animation history!
One week later, on June 25 Terminator 5 will be released and, yes, Arnold Schwartzenneger will be back once again as the Terminator!
In Between, on June 19, Fox - Ubisoft will release their video game adaptation project "Assassin's Creed". I'm not specially awaiting this one but i'm sure plenty of fans of the video game do.
Let's move to July as on July 3 will be released Independence Day 2 the sequel of Roland Emmerich most successful movie. No need to say that Aliens and more Earth landmarks destruction will be on the menu.
Just one week after Pirates of Caribbean "Dead Men Tell No Tales" will be released on July 10, directed by Joachim Ronning and of course with Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow.
And if all this was not enough, the awaited Batman-Superman feature will arrive in theaters on July 17, directed by Zack Snyder with Henry Cavill as Superman and Ben Affleck as Batman - if there is no changes for this one as Batman fans are absolutely furious to have Ben Affleck playing Batman.
And lat but not least, if you're a Smurfs fans, the third Smurfs movie will be released on July 24.
And what about Star Wars Episode 7, you ask? Well the cherry on the top of the cake - and it's a big cherry - is now supposed to be released early December 2015 partly to avoid this 2015 summer mega blockbusters battle and also to give more time to J.J Abrams as the timing seems to be apparently a little bit short for a summer release.
But that's not all for 2015 as a Fantastic Four movie is planned for March 6, Marvel's Ant Man as well as the new James Bond for November 6, Pixar's Finding Dory on November 28, Kung Fu Panda 3 on December 23 AND Jurassic Park 4, Mission Impossible 5, Prometheus 2, Doc Savage as well as Crouching Dragon Hidden Tiger 2 have yet a release date to be announced not counting a Popeye and a Warcraft movies also coming in 2015.
Wow, that's a LOT of movies with a potential to be good movies. Will they be really? They better be as if they're not great - considering the cost of each of them - 2015 as predicted by Seven Spielberg not that long ago could mark the end of Hollywood as we know it...That said, it will be for sure a gigantic box office war considering that almost each of these will be released one week after another. Not sure there will be enough theaters for all of them, but if they're all great it should be a delight of awesomeness!
And what about YOU? Which one are you planning to see?
