Jurassic World starring Chris Pratt
10 – Jurassic World
I first saw Jurassic Park when I was 8 or 9. I credit that movie with sparking my love for film and wanting to actually make movies. Like a ton of other people, I’ve been eagerly anticipating Jurassic World. However, some story elements worry me, but I’m mostly optimistic that this film will rejuvenate a stagnant franchise. Starrring Chris Pratt, and directed by Colin Treverrow, Jurassic World opens June 12. (CH)


9 – Spectre
You could argue that the James Bond franchise, one of the longest running and known franchises in cinema, is at the moment, underrated. Such is the age of superhero films. It’s a shame though, as Skyfall deserved far greater awards consideration when it came out in 2012, and with most of the creative team coming back, and a terrific cast assembled, I expect Spectre to be just as great.

8 – Inside Out
Pixar’s next film looks like a fun concept, even though it’s almost like an animated version of the old TV sitcom, Herman’s Head. The animated family comedy comes from the mind of Pete Docter, based on a story written by Michael Arndt, the film features the voice talents of Amy Poehler, Lewis Black, Mindy Kaling, Bill Hader, and Phyllis Smith. Inside Out opens June 19. (CM)

7 – Furious 7
The loss of Paul Walker was tragic, and for the franchise to take such a hit was devestating. But some how James Wan, who takes Justin Lin’s place, managed to put the film together. This time an enemy (Jason Statham) they never see coming takes his revenge on Dominic (Vin Diesel) and his crew, and he won’t rest until he gets it. The film looks to bring back the car chases of the 70s, and still has the same big action sequences with insane stunts, exotic locations, and lots of bulging muscles. Let’s not forget the one-liners. Furious 7 opens April 7. (ML)


Silence directed by Martin Scorsese
6 – Silence
With all the blockbuster tentpoles, sequels, and prequels, it’s hard to believe that there is a Martin Scorsese film in the mix. But there is. Following his effort of The Wolf Of Wall Street, the acclaimed director will try his hand at an adaptation of Shūsaku Endō’s novel Silence. The film centers on two Jesuit priests in Japan during the 17th Century. Filming began back in July 2014, and there is no official release date set. The film stars Andrew Garfield, Liam Neeson, Issei Ogata and Ken Watanabe.
