    Annie
    This movie is a re-telling of the classic musical story in a modern setting about an orphaned girl whom a mayoral candidate, as a gimmick for his election campaign, took in his home. It stars Quvenzhané Wallis (Beasts of the Southern Wild), Jamie Foxx (The Amazing Spider-Man 2) and Cameron Diaz (Charlie’s Angels movies). There will be lots of singing for sure!




    Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb
    The magic of the museum that brings to life its displays every midnight is apparently wearing off, so the gang goes to London to find answers. This movie is also one of the movies that Robin Williams wrapped up before his unexpected demise. We’re excited to see the comic legend bring laughter to his audience one last time.




    Into the Woods
    A modern twist to the Brothers Grimm fairy tales, this story revolves around the tales of Cinderella, the Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk, Rapunzel, a baker and his wife, and of course a witch. The musical play version had great reviews, so we’re excited about this one. And no other than the award-winning actress Meryl Streep plays the witch. ‘Nuff said.





    FEBRUARY

    The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water
    Bikini Bottom’s famous yellow sponge is on the surface and in our “real” world! He’s out to search for the secret recipe that will save the underwater town from the pirate Burger-Beard. The rest of the Bikini Bottom gang joins in the fray for another riotous movie.





    MARCH
     

    Cinderella
    The new live-action retelling of this classic fairy tale stays true to the original story, complete with evil stepsisters, helpful mice, a pumpkin carriage, Prince Charming, and the glass slippers, so it’s really like seeing the fairy tale characters come alive before your eyes! Lily James (Downton Abbey) headlines the cast as Ella, with Cate Blanchett and Helena Bonham Carter as the evil stepmother and fairy godmother, respectively.




    Home
    An animated feature from Dreamworks, Home is about an alien named Oh and a human girl named Tip taking a road trip of a lifetime. In their world, Earth is being taken over by the Oh’s alien race Boov, who are looking for a new place to call home. Sounds like a lot of out-of-this-world fun is about to unfold.





    APRIL

    The Avengers: Age of Ultron
    The epic follow-up to one of the most successful superhero movies of today, The Avengers: Age of Ultron takes our superhero crew to battle a highly powerful villain. This is also the film where characters Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch will be introduced. Judging by the trailer, it really packs more challenges for The Avengers. Will they be victorious? Let’s watch and find out.

    Pitch Perfect 2
    They’re back, pitches! The musical comedy film featuring the college a capella groups the Barden Bellas and The Treblemakers are about to take on the global stage. Stars Anna Kendrick, Brittany Snow, Rebel Wilson, Ester Dean, and Skylar Astin are back for another aca-awesome movie.




    Tomorrowland
    From the director of The Incredibles and Ratatouille, Tomorrowland is a film about former boy-genius inventor and an optimistic and curious teenager embarking on a dangerous mission to discover secrets of the mysterious place called Tomorrowland — and whatever they do in Tomorrowland has consequences on the real world.





    JUNE

    B.O.O.: Bureau of Otherworldly Operations

    BOO

    The super classified agency BOO (Bureau of Otherworldly Operations) is dedicated to protect humans from evil hauntings. How do they do that, you ask? It’s because the agents are ghosts themselves — and one of them discovered a plot to destroy the agency. Sounds like RIPD (Ryan Reynolds, Jeff Bridges), only it’s animated.


    Jurassic World
    Do you remember how watching Jurassic Park got you all scared and screaming? Well, it looks like this new film, which is set to bring life back to the franchise will do just that and more. Twenty-two years after the first movie was released, everything about the park is well, until scientists create a new hybrid dino. Not really a good idea, but we sure want to find out how that plays out.




    Inside Out
    Disney-Pixar’s animation studios had the world waiting for almost two years for another full-length film (the last one was Monsters University in 2013). This fresh offering takes the audience inside the head of a girl named Riley, who recently moved houses. Inside her head we meet Joy, Fear, Anger, Disgust, and Sadness—her emotions come to life! We simply can’t wait.
