Top 10 Movies of 2015

The new year is here, and one of my most popular blog features is back -- the 10 movies I'm most looking forward to in 2015!  Along with the list, the release dates for the movies will take you to their respective pages on IMDb.

10. Inside Out (June 15, 2015)
Inside Out will be this year's movie from Disney Pixar.  I love everything Disney and Pixar put out, and this one looks like it's going to be pretty funny.  Plus this will bring Lewis Black into a Disney movie, which is the strangest pairing on this list.

9. Poltergeist (July 24, 2015)
So apparently they are remaking 1982's Poltergeist.  There's no poster or anything up on IMDb yet, so I'm not quite sure if it's going to happen.  Although, Sam Raimi, director of the original Evil Dead and the Tobey Maguire Spider-Man, is attached to the project, so it should be good if it does happen.

8. Insurgent (March 20, 2015)
So my girlfriend finally forced me to watch Divergent in December.  I really thought it was going to be stupid like Twilight, but it actually turned out to be pretty awesome.  I absolutely loved it, and I really can't wait to see the sequel.

7. Fantastic Four (August 7, 2015)
I haven't seen the original Fantastic Four in awhile, and I don't even think I've ever seen Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, but my recollection is that they both kind of stink.  Hopefully this one is a little bit better, and if it follows every other superhero movie that has come out in the past few years, it should be.

6. Friday the 13th (November 13, 2015)
This movie is probably even less likely to come out in 2015 than Poltergeist.  IMDb says the movie is still "in development," which is basically movie speak for "not gonna happen anytime soon."  If it does come out this year, I'll be in the theater on opening night.  I love a good slasher horror movie.

5. Insidious: Chapter 3 (June 5, 2015)
Insidious was one of the best horror movies I've seen in the past few years.  And Insidious: Chapter 2 was a really cool place to take the franchise.  I'm really excited to see how this prequel turns out.

4. Jurassic World (June 12, 2015)
This movie looks crazy.  All of a sudden Chris Pratt has started popping up in everything awesome, and this movie should be another one.  The trailer looked crazy, and I've always loved the Jurassic Park franchise. 

3. Ant-Man (July 17, 2015)
When this movie was announced, it got about the same reaction of "WTF" as Guardians of the Galaxy.  But it's a Marvel movie, so it should be absolute gold.  I'm really excited to see it in the summer, and it has Paul Rudd, so you know it'll be funny.

2. Avengers: Age of Ultron (May 1, 2015)
Seriously, this is obviously one of the movies I'm most looking forward to in 2015.  I can't wait to see Ultron up on the big screen, and it is going to get crazy.  I always look forward to the next movie in the Avengers series, so I've been looking forward to this since Guardians of the Galaxy in August.

1. Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens (December 18, 2015)
This movie being my top movie of 2015 is a no-brainer.  I loved Star Wars as a kid, and I even loved Episode I when it came out.  Of course, as I grew up I realized what a monster Jar-Jar was, but this one is going to be amazing.  I seriously can't wait until December.

Thanks for reading!  Leave a comment below with the movies you are most looking forward to in 2015.
