1. Dumb And Dumber To
We’ve been waiting a while for this one. It’s been 20 years since thet last one. The Farrelly brothers are celebrating this special anniversary of their 1994 road trip flick with the ultimate treat for its fans: the release of Dumb and Dumber To.
When the first film was conceived, Jim Carrey was on the brink of stardom. Carrey was initially offered $700,000 to play the splendidly named Lloyd Christmas, but when Ace Ventura: Pet Detective opened at #1 that same week, his salary was bumped to $7 million.
2. Gone Girl
Directed by David Fincher (“The Social Network”), the film is based on Gillian Flynn’s thrilling novel that has sold more than 6 million copies. Gone Girl and sees Ben Affleck play Nick Dunne, a man who falls under suspicion when his wife, Amy, disappears in mysterious circumstances.
Gillian Flynn’s work is one of the most talked about books of the last few years, selling millions of copies and becoming a fixture in book clubs the world over.
3. Exodus: Gods And Kings
Exodus: Gods and Kings tells the tale of Moses and his attempts to lead the Israelite slaves out of Egypt, and stars Oscar award winner Christian Bale as Moses, as well as featuring Aaron Paul, Sigourney Weaver and Joel Edgerton.
Scott can do scale like few others, and Exodus will be a full-on Biblical assault, with set pieces and plagues aplenty.
4. Penguins Of Madagascar
In this spin-off from the original series, the much-loved espionage team of Skipper, Kowalski, Rico and Private will link up with the North Wind, an inter-species task force, to stop Dr. Octavius Brine from destroying the world as we know it.
The penguins have already appeared in their own animated series and Penguins of Madagascar was originally conceived as a direct-to-video film (man do we need another phrase for that by now). However, in the same vein as the forthcoming Despicable Me offshoot Minions, the popularity of these characters has bagged them their own big-screen adventure.
Interstellar sees Matthew McConaughey lead a group of explorers through a wormhole in space in the hope that their mission will save humanity, and the cast includes Anne Hathaway, Casey Affleck, Jessica Chastain and, of course, Michael Caine.
