Time flies past so quickly sometimes. One moment you're at a New Year party and the next, a Christmas party. With 2015 being just less than two months away, most of us are already planning ahead for the new year. As your unofficial (and unsolicited) entertainment advisers, we are happy to help you plan your music-listening, movie-watching and TV-binging for 2015.
2014 wasn't too kind to the film industry but we did enjoy some mega hits like Guardians of the Galaxy, Gone Girl and The Fault in Our Stars. 2015 promises to be a bigger year for the average movie addict—a label we proudly metaphorically wear on our metaphorical sleeves—and we'd like to share with you six upcoming films we're anticipating the most. If you like them, we can all fan-girl/fan-boy over these films on Twitter when they come out in cinemas.
