2015’s a Science Fiction year for Hollywood

I’ll admit that when it comes to entertainment, I watch television series and movies more than read. Becoming a writer has seemingly destroyed my ability to completely envelop myself in a book; I’m either dissecting the work or becoming side-tracked by my own stories. When it comes to movies and tv, however, I can sit back, relax and become obsessed.

In 2015 there’s some tremendous sci-fi movies coming out and these are a few of the ones I can’t wait for!

Jurassic World

Seriously, no matter how bad it may eventually end up (I’m hoping it’ll actually be good), I can’t wait for Jurassic World. I’ve seen the original AND the crappy sequels over and over again, so I can’t wait to have something new to get excited about. The trailer looks incredible, and it seems they’re tackling an old story but adding some updated scientific gadgets and theories to give us something really great.

Snowpiercer

Now, I know that Snowpiercer has already made its way to the US, but here in the UK we’re still eagerly awaiting it – will it ever actually get a cinema release date? I love Tilda Swinton, and her characterisation looks awesome as always. I’ve read a lot of fan reviews, many of which say Snowpiercer is one of the most surprisingly brilliant science fiction films to have been made in the past few years.

Jupiter Ascending

This movies has had its release date pushed time and time again, so now we’re looking at a 2015 launch. It has all the makings of cliche movie; good vs bad, a forgotten princess, the chosen one. However, if it all comes together well, I’ll doubt I’ll care about these common tropes and instead enjoy it for what it is; a YA Science Fiction Blockbuster.

Tomorrowland

If you’re a fan of Under the Dome, then you’ll recognise this little lady; Britt Robertson. Hollywood has obviously come a-knocking as this looks to be a big budget film and it looks as if it might be rather interesting…

Project Alamanac

Time travelling teens having a blast as they go back and correct all the wrong doings in their lives…..until the consequences of changing the past start to catch them up. Looks like it could be a surprisingly good movie.

Terminator Genisys

Okay, I’m sure it’ll probably be bad, but I’m a Terminator fan, from the first three movies through to the Sarah Connor Chronicles. From one GoT actress to another, we’ve got Emilia Clarke in the role of Connor this time, over Lena Headley. There’s also the awesome cameo of Arnie which I’m going to love regardless of what else happens.

Finally, I can’t finish this post without mention of Mockingjay: Part 2 and Star Wars; Episode 7, both of which are likely to be phenomenally big movies that take over the coming year….despite the fact they’re not out until December. But, whilst we’re waiting, at least there’s some potentially winning entertainment on the cards.
