2015 really is shaping up to be quite the awesome year, in fact, quite possibly the greatest year in the history of cinema as far as blockbuster tentpole fare is concerned. Even if half of the year’s potentially awesome movies – many of which sadly didn’t make the cut on this list – end up flopping, that’s still going to leave a litany of cracking flicks to make 2015 an unforgettable year of films. Assuming that all of these projects make their release dates, there’s going to be much to be excited about in not just the summer of 2015, but the year as a whole.
