A number of these are not necessarily going to be great, win awards, earn millions at the box office, or even be released in the 2015 calendar year. For a few of the titles, there is no trailer yet, I'm just going by enjoying the director's previous work.
Ultimately, this is just a collection (in random order) of upcoming smaller and bigger films that I am looking forward to the most.
Films such as Whiplash, Birdman, Selma, Foxcatcher, Goodbye to Language 3D, A Most Violent Year, Mommy, and Inherent Vice, I'm counting as 2014 films, because that was when they had their world premieres. In reality, you could argue they are 2015 films in some areas due to release dates.
Agree or disagree? Which films are you anticipating the most for 2015?
