Any director brave enough to try and remake the 80’s classic surely has some balls! Gratuitous violence, dark humour and a cool twist on the future marked a glorious film.
Director Jose Padhila will hopefully give us what we have been waiting for and deliver similar magic that we saw in ‘Elite Squad’.
2. Muppets Most Wanted
One for all the family. Ricky Gervais is a long for the ride this time which could add some ‘extra’ laughs.
The last outing in 2011 was the first Muppets film in many years and fans were not disappointed. On Rotten Tomatoes it has the best rating out of the whole series; can Kermit and co top that again?
3. Captain America: The Winter Soldier
This sequel starring Chris Evans and Scarlett Johansson promises to be action packed and true to the Marvel genre.
The director duo that is the Russo brothers state that it will bridge the gap between the Avengers film and upcoming sequel in 2015.
4. X Men: Days of Future Past
Reprising roles for Hugh Jackman, Ian Mckellen and Patrick Stewart.
Marvel are sensibly going back to the roots of what initially got viewers gripped in the X Men series- acting ability and storyline. Let’s face it ‘First Class’ was dire.
5. Need For Speed
We have all played the high octane games; can a movie representation deliver the same thrills? Will it be a Fast and Furious rip off? Time will tell.
Starring John Michael Mcdonagh as a priest caught up in a war of morals. Mcdonagh is a genius at delivery onscreen and a very under rated actor. Calvary could be one of the best drama films of 2014.
7. The Monuments Men
George Clooney delayed a cinema release earlier in 2013. The story is set in WWII, Franklin D Roosevelt sends a small platoon of soldiers behind German enemy lines to retrieve invaluable Art work.
Clooney stars alongside Matt Damon and Bill Murray.
8. Transformers: Age of Extinction
Optimus prime for optimum results. The Transformers series made robots cool again. Director Michael Bay is back with help from Steven Spielberg in what is set four years after the last film.
Reports show no return of Shia Lebouf but this is not a concern for die-hard fans that will be treat to more action from Bumblebee!
9. Gone Girl
Director David Fincher’s adaptation of critically acclaimed novel of the same name. The best part of this is author of the book- Gillian Flynn, has written the screen play.
Starring Ben Affleck, this has potential to be an amazing thriller.
Johnny Depp. Johnny Depp. Need we say any more? Helped along by the skills of Christopher Nolan in what promises to be a big budget FX laden movie.
Set in the future where humanity is trying to come up with the ultimate computer program; Depp plays a scientist who has his consciousness uploaded to the internet.
Hopefully Depp will not try his usual over-quirkiness, expect many plot twists.
