Also, I realized after listing these that they are all post-apocalyptic. Dystopian landscapes are so hot right now.
MAD MAX: FURY ROAD
This remake of the massively popular film trilogy from the 80s (starring Mel Gibson, back when he was more Australian and less racist) is being welcomed by fans, and it's easy to see why. George Miller directs Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron in this reboot, and it looks both amazing and true to the spirit of the original.
THE HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY PART 1
Jennifer Lawrence is back as Katniss in Part 1 of the conclusion to The Hunger Games trilogy (or... quadrilogy?). While the teaser remains very vague, we do see hints of what's in store: violence, unrest, war, and a lot more great acting out of Lawrence, Julianne Moore, Donald Sutherland, and the late great Phillip Seymour Hoffman.
Which upcoming film are you most excited about?
