The 2015 Movie Preview - February / March

.
What movies do we have to look forward to next February and March? Stick around and we'll run through them...


Jupiter Ascending
Mila Kunis plays Jupiter Jones, a cleaner unsuccessfully navigating life. When Canning Tatum's genetically engineered hunter Caine arrives on Earth to save her life, she discovers her destiny lies amongst the stars.

Jupiter Ascending was delayed from its original July 2014 release date, will the Wachowskis latest cinematic treat be worth the wait? We will find out on February 6th...




Shaun The Sheep
Who doesn't love Aardman Animations? They've bought us Wallace & Gromit, Chicken Run, The Pirates, Flushed Away and Arthur Christmas to name just a few. And on February 6th Shaun The Sheep makes his big screen debut.

When Shaun decides to take the day off and have some fun, he gets a little more action than he bargained for! Shaun’s mischief inadvertently leads to The Farmer being taken away from the farm, to the Big City…

Join Shaun, Bitzer and The Flock on their hilarious, action-packed, big screen adventure as they make plans to rescue the missing Farmer. A story about how we sometimes forget to appreciate the things we have in life, and the people who love us. Shaun the Sheep The Movie introduces us to two new Aardman characters; Trumper the animal warden who rules the city’s animal shelter with a rod of iron and Slip, an inner city orphan dog who helps Shaun save the day.



Hot Tub Time Machine 2
The first movie was a heck of a lot of fun, and by the look of the trailer below the second might just match it. All the original cast have returned, except for John Cusack who has been ably replaced by Adam Scott, Hot Tub Time Machine 2 arrives on February 20th.

Warning, the trailer is a little NSFW - swears and boobs!





Insurgent
The sequel to Divergent arrives on March 18th. The first movie was a decent teenage/dystopian flick, not quite up to The Hunger Games standards but when compared to a lot of the wannabes, well let's just say I'll take this sequel over another Mortal Instruments movie!

The plot sees Beatrice Prior (Shailene Woodley) confronting her inner demons and continuing her fight against the powerful alliance which threatens to tear her society apart. It is released on March 18th in the UK and two days later in the US




Home
There's a heck of a lot on animation around nowadays, but I think Dreamworks continue to offer the best quality alternative to Disney, and their latest movie looks to be no exception.

In Home a friendly alien race invades Earth and uses it as a hideout from their mortal enemy. When one lowly alien accidentally notifies the enemies of his whereabouts, he is forced to go on the run with a teenage girl. The two become unlikely buddies and embark on a comical globe-trotting adventure to right his wrongs, in which our alien hero learns what it really means to be human.

It features the voices of Jim Parsons and Steve Martin (Hooray for those two), as well as Rihanna and J-Lo (but I'm not so excited about them!), and previously went under the name of Happy Smekday. You can catch it in UK cinemas from March 20th and one week later in the US




Seventh Son
Originally set for release back in January this year, Seventh Son was put on hold until 2015. It was given a date of February 16th but then got moved again to March 27th (US movie goers can watch it from 6th Feb). Seventh Son stars Jeff Bridges as a mystical warrior, it's a role that looks like it could've been first offered to Nicolas Cage - but that can't have been the case because we all know 'The Cage' never turns anything down!

Still, by the look of the trailer Seventh Son might just be worth the wait...




The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out Of Water
The first SpongeBob SquarePants movie arrived in 2004 when the show was at the height of it's popularity. The movie was surprisingly good too, featuring a very memorable cameo from David Hasselhoff. But the last decade has seen the quality of the show decline somewhat, its golden years are definitely in the past so it came as something of a surprise to hear that a new movie was being planned for 2015.

In Sponge Out Of Water there's no Hasselhoff to be seen, but there is Antonio Banderas, and if this two and a half minutes is anything to go by then it's going to be pretty funny...



It looks surprisingly good, no? You can catch it on 6th February in the US or 27th March in the UK.

Also released in February / March 2015 and on our radar...

The Interview (February 6th) - James Franco and Seth Rogan interview North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, and may end up starting WWIII with this comedy.

50 Shades Of Grey (February 13th) - If you go and see this movie we can no longer be friends.

Paranormal Activity: Ghost Dimension (March 13th) - Appreciating that it is released on Friday 13th, I still think this would've been a better Halloween movie.

Mortdecai (January 23rd) - It has Jeff Goldblum in. I have nothing else to say about it.

So which of these movies are you looking forward to the most? Let us know in the comments below, and come back tomorrow when we check out the months of April and May 2015.
