There are some exciting movies scheduled to come out this year. Some of the biggest and best are the Superhero movies, and boy o boy is there a great selection coming out and not just from Marvel studios. Here’s my pick of the top 5 to look out for.
Robocop (Feb 7)
A remake of the 1987 classic violent cop film, just like Dredd was remade in 2012 from the classic 1995 Stallone flick. This new film looks to revamp the super cool robo-suit and story line. With the likes of Gary Oldman and Samuel L. Jackson starring in it, it’s set to be a hit. Let’s hope it keeps the old audience happy and the new audience entertained. Although with a PG-13 rating instead of an ’18’ It may need to try a bit harder than before to get people excited about it.
300 Rise of an empire (March 7)
This is the sequel to 300 released in 2006 starring Gerard Butler. Unfortunately Gerard isn’t starring in this one (maybe cause his character died). It shows the aftermath of his army being beaten and the mighty Spartans valiant campaign against the Persians. It’s only 102 mins long but hopefully it’ll prove to be a thrilling movie filled with action, pure manliness and impressive beards!
Teenage mutant ninja turtles (2014 at some point)
Now this was one of my favourite TV shows as a kid – a bunch of dude turtles who love pizza and kicking butt. Whats not to like? Now there’s not much info out there on this film just the cast, which includes Megan Fox as April O’Neil. The movie also keeps changing it’s release date so fingers crossed it will come out this year. We’ve also been reassured that it will stay true to the comics. Plus with new technology really bringing the characters to life, it should be a pretty awesome film! Above is a taste of what the Ninja Turtles will look like.
X-Men: Days of future past (July 18)
Now this is an exciting saga in the series of X-Men comics. Time travel, and Wolverine are the two main things to take away from this. He has to go back in time to fix a future of doom for mutants and humans. Starring all your favourite X-Men this is set to be a great addition to the X-Men movie Franchise.
Sin City: A dame to kill for (August 22)
This film sees the likes of Micky Rourke Playing the loveable psychopath Marv, Bruce Willis playing straight-laced cop John Hartigan and the beautiful Nancy Callaghan crossing paths with murderers, thieves and killer women in the reviled Sin City. This hugely anticipated film adds a new chapter to the beautifully shot series. When the first film came out, it created a sensation and an interesting new style of cinematography. I’ve been looking forward to this film for a long time and if it’s anything like its uniquely filmed predecessor, then I’m sure we won’t be disappointed.
So there’s my top 5 to watch out for, there are many more Superhero/comic book films set to come out this year, but these might just offer something a bit different to what we’ve seen in the past couple of years. So put these dates in your diary for a superhero-sized 2014!
