The holidays are winding down and we’re heading into the new year with a whole new schedule of films hitting theaters in 2015. January kicks us off with plenty of movie options to help you escape the winter blues, including anticipated releases like ‘Taken 3' and ‘Blackhat,’ as well as more action, adventure, and even a couple of family friendly releases. Read on for our guide to the new movie releases coming to a theater near you in January 2015.
Following today’s release of a message sent from the mysterious group responsible for the massive Sony hack, the company has now informed theater owners that they can opt out of screening ‘The Interview’ if they are concerned about the terrorist threat. Although the Department of Homeland Security responded by saying they could find “no credible info” on planned attacks, Sony has decided to place the decision to screen the film in the hands of theater executives.
As we reported back in September, Universal has been planning a new 'Bourne' film with Paul Greengrass returning to the director's chair and Matt Damon returning to the role of Jason Bourne. The thing is, we hadn't heard anything official from Damon himself ... until now. The actor finally broke his silence in a recent interview to confirm his return to the 'Bourne' franchise.
Even though we were told, once upon a time, that Disney and Pixar had no plans for 'Toy Story 4,' it seems that those plans have changed. After a series of short films that kept us up to date with the adventures of Woody and Buzz Lightyear and friends, Disney CEO Bob Iger has just announced that we'll finally be getting a 'Toy Story 4' after all, and it has an official release date and everything.
The cast of Quentin Tarantino's 'The Hateful Eight' is shaping up to be one of the most exciting ensemble casts in quite some time, and now it's looking to add one of the biggest leading men to the roster: Channing Tatum is being eyed for a leading role in Tarantino's upcoming western, and word is that the role is pretty major.
The first full trailer for 'Minions' has arrived, highlighting the little yellow, gibberish-speaking sidekicks from 'Despicable Me,' who are getting their very own prequel/origin story. Set 42 years B.G. (Before Gru), the lovable little yellow goofballs are on a quest to find their next master after a series of mishaps throughout the years has left them without a leader.
One of the people we haven't seen a whole lot of in the more recent trailers for 'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1' is Peeta. Yes, we saw him in those earlier "message from Capitol" teasers, all in white with President Snow and Joanna, but the trailers for the latest installment of Katniss' harrowing journey have been mostly absent of her bread-making friend. Until now! And it looks like Gale is not too pleased about it.
We're only about a month away from the next chapter in 'The Hunger Games' saga, and in case you needed a reminder, we've got a brand new trailer for you. In it, Katniss Everdeen also gets a reminder, but it's one of the more harrowing variety, as she's sent to District 12 to see the devastation that was wrought upon her home district in the wake of the events of 'Catching Fire.'
Rejoice! While we've known for a while that 'Bridesmaids' director Paul Feig would be helming the upcoming female-centric 'Ghostbusters' reboot, today we have another development: not only is Feig directing the reboot, which will definitely be a separate entity from the original 'Ghostbusters' films, but the project will re-team him with Katie Dippold, who wrote the screenplay for Feig's buddy cop comedy 'The Heat.' This is pretty much the best news since, well, the news that we're getting an all-female 'Ghostbusters' movie.
Well that didn't last long, did it? With the conclusion of the original 'Bourne' trilogy, director Paul Greengrass said there wasn't really anywhere else for Jason Bourne to go in the franchise, hence the Jeremy Renner spinoff 'The Bourne Legacy.' But it looks like Greengrass and star Matt Damon have come up with an idea to put Jason Bourne back into action.
'22 Jump Street' gave us one of the most hilarious end credits sequences in comedy history, and one that seemed to signal to audiences that Phil Lord and Chris Miller were done with making 'Jump Street' movies, as it delivered concepts for about 20 fake sequels. But not so fast: '22 Jump Street' writer Rodney Rothman has been hired to return for '23 Jump Street,' so it seems like Ice Cube's threat to send our favorite undercover cops to medical school might not be out of the question.
While it's not a 'Frozen' sequel, fans of Disney's newest animated classic will be delighted to know that you'll definitely be seeing Anna and Elsa in yet another charming adventure -- the studio is planning an all-new animated short film titled 'Frozen Fever,' and you'll be seeing it sooner rather than later.
