20 – Fantastic Four
Easily the film with the least amount of positive buzz, Fantastic Four is actually positioned to be one of the surprise hits of 2015 if it turns out to actually be good. One glimmer of hope: I doubt Disney/Lucasfilm would hands the reins to one of their big budget Star Wars spinoff films to Josh Trank based off of Chronicle alone. There has to be something redeeming about this movie. Starring Miles Teller, Michael B. Jordan, Kate Mara, Jamie Bell, and Tobey Kebbell, Fantastic Four opens August 7.(AG)

19 – Terminator: Genisys
More like Terminator: Days of Future Past, am I right? While I’ve heard some not so nice things that have me worried, but certain story elements really excite me! I hope this isn’t the final nail in the Terminator franchise’s coffin. Directed by Alan Taylor, Terminator Genisys is scheduled to be released by Paramount Pictures on July 1. (Caleb Hamliton)


Ted 2
18 – Ted 2
I’m a huge fan of the first film, so I’m I can’t wait to laugh out loud in theaters again at silly and bawdy humor, when this film is released. Mark Wahlberg reprises his role as John Bennett, a grown man who is best friends with a living breathing teddy bear named Ted, who is voiced and mo-caped by the film’s director, Seth MacFarlane. Amanda Seyfried and Liam Neeson are the film’s newest additions. Ted 2 opens in theaters on June 26. (CM)


Mission: Impossible 5
17 – Mission: Impossible 5
Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol was simply stellar, and while I would have loved to have seen Brad Bird return to direct this sequel, the franchise has always been about Tom Cruise, and what death-defying stunt he’s willing to subject himself to next. Jack Reacher was a solid debut for Christopher McQuarrie, so the potential is certainly to continue the franchise’s positive momentum. Yes that’s Tom Cruise doing this own stunts in the image above. Mission: Impossible opens December 25. (AG)


Pixels starring Adam Sandler, Josh Gad, Peter Dinklage, and Michelle Monaghan
16 – Pixels
Adam Sandler being a part of this film, does make me worry a little, but being an old-school gamer, the storyline involving 80’s video game characters attacking NYC does make me very interested in it. Plus, Peter Dinklage plays a badass video game champion, so that’s worth the price of admission. Pixels opens July 24. (CM)
