10 Movies to Look Forward to in 2014
- by Steve Garcia, 5 January 2014
A new year means a slew of new movies coming towards a theater near you, ladies and gents! While I could go on for days about the dozens of films I know will be great, here’s just a teensy taste of what 2014 will have to offer. Sit back and relax, Trash Muties! Here are ten movies you should be excited about for the New Year!
1. The Lego Movie
2. Muppets Most Wanted
3. Captain America: The Winter Soldier
6. X-Men: Days of Future Past
7. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes
8. Guardians of the Galaxy
As long as Marvel keeps the ball rolling with interesting material, audiences will just eat it right up, and it looks like August 1st’s Guardians of the Galaxy will be the one to prove it wholeheartedly. Based on the more current iteration of the team, the film will be about its formation and will directly be connected to Thanos’s appearance in the Avengers as well as the brief after-credits sequence that followed Thor: The Dark World. While we do not have an official trailer as of right now to showcase the total insanity this movie will have to offer, it doesn’t take a genius to guess that: a) Marvel will make another hit, b) Chris Pratt was born to play the lead role, and c) Rocket Raccoon will be everyone’s favorite critter of the year. Alongside Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Bradley Cooper, Dave Bautista, and Vin Diesel make up the rest of the team, and they’ll be joined by a slew of incredible actors including Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan,Djimon Hounsou, Benicio del Toro, John C. Reilly, and Glenn Close.
10. Dumb and Dumber To
Closing out the list (which was actually really difficult; this is going to be a great year!) is a film that, the second it was it was announced, I’ve been following it like a mad man: Dumb and Dumber To. While the general consensus regarding the 2003 prequel wasn’t so great, this time around, everyone who was involved with the original film will be back, and that couldn’t be better news! Dumb and Dumber has a special place in my heart and is probably one of the best comedies I’ve ever seen, and now that everyone is gearing up for the sequel, I simply cannot wait to see what they come up with this time. It will take place twenty years after the events of the original, and it will involve them meeting up with their long lost children. Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels’s amazing chemistry can be witnessed on November 14th, and I couldn’t be more pumped. They’re back!
And that concludes my ten most anticipated films of the year, ladies and gentlemen! Of course, there are dozens of other movies coming out this year that will no doubt be awesome, so don’t worry: I didn’t forget about Robocop or Michael Bay’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (cue rimshot!). But enough about me, Muties, what about you? Are you on board with these movies? What other upcoming films tickle your fancy this year? Let us know, and as always, be good to one another!
