The movie calendar often sees a host of ups and downs which weren’t to be expected. Sometimes big films fall flat and sometimes we’re stunned by small-budget independent films that get their break at a summer festival. One thing’s for sure though, there’s always a big event to look forward to in the world of film, and 2014 has been no different.
Here, we take a look at three films for 2014 release which have had critics and movie-goers waiting with bated breath.
The Hobbit – The Battle of The Five Armies
The Lord of the Rings started it off with a bang in the early 2000’s and now J.R.R. Tolkien’s Hobbit series follows suit as the next series of big box office hits for the beloved author. Set for release in December (17th), The Hobbit – The Battle of The Five Armies finds Bilbo and the dwarves embarking on a perilous journey to reclaim the dwarf Kingdom of Erebor from Smaug the dragon.
With a release date near the Christmas holiday season, this film is sure to bring with it the queues of audiences eager for a holiday treat.
Sure to be a sci-fi hit from Christopher Nolan, Interstellar tells the story of a group of intrepid space explorers who use a wormhole to defy the normal limitations on space travel and enjoy interstellar voyages. Their purpose? To discover a new planet fit for human inhabitation as Earth’s resources becoming increasingly depleted and the future of mankind faces extinction.
Set for release in early November, this release is set to achieve plenty of fan fare thanks to impressive graphics and a captivating storyline that asks each of us to wonder what would we do if life on earth was no longer possible…
The Hunger Games Mockingjay Part I
As with many series before it, The Hunger Games have attracted plenty of attention and viewer ratings. The next instalment in the franchise – Hunger Games 3 – is set to be no different with this tale of rebellion and strength finally beginning its final chapter.
Set to be released as two parts, The Hunger Games Mockingjay Part I will document the beginning of Katniss’ rebellion against the Capitol with the final action saved for this chapter’s second instalment. Reluctantly becoming the poster child for the rebellion, Katniss’ character must once again fulfil a role that she was born to play yet struggles with internally – providing a cinematic experience you can’t afford to miss.
You can avoid disappointment by booking tickets to watch Hunger Games 3 at Cineworld in advance of the release on 20 November.
