What’s hitting the big screen in 2015?

Movies–we all love them. Scraping up enough money to pay for the overpriced ticket and snacks (because you can’t watch a movie without snacks), and finally being able to see that new release you’ve been dying to go to. You’ve got your movie buddy; one person buys the tickets, the other buys the snacks. Or, you decide to go solo on this mission; the inevitable emotions that are going to wash over you are too risky to show in front of a family member or not-as-good-as-you-best-friend friend. You walk in, find the perfect seats, settle in and get ready for an emotional roller coaster. The anticipation builds, and then the lights finally go down, the curtains start moving and its show time.

But first, it’s time for the previews. I don’t know about you, but every time I go to a movie, I get so distracted and excited about the previews and the awesome movies going to come out, that I actually forget which movie I came to see. I have to sit for a second in that darkness between the previews and the intro of the movie to think about the real reason I came to the theatres. And it happens every time.

So, just because I’m nice like that, I’ve compiled a list of movies to look out for in 2015! (Although, I guess the effect isn’t quite the same since I’m only distracting you from the rest of the newspaper…)
