Chappie is an experimental robot capable of learning and feeling emotion. Basically a grown up version of Wall-E. Chappie is armed with guns, hangs out with gangsters and runs away from the villainous Hugh Jackman who’s trying to destroy him. Chappie can do and feel everything that humans can, but can he survive until the end of the movie?

Disney has done a lot of remakes recently, and the new Cinderella movie is another to add to the list.
Cinderella is a live-action recreation of the classic fairy tale. The movie follows the same story line as the original folk tale, but Disney has a few surprises in store. Lily James stars in the title role, with Cate Blanchett as the Stepmother and Helena Bonham Carter as the Fairy Godmother.
The film is directed by Kenneth Branagh, who also directed Thor.
Release Date: March 13, 2015.
With S.H.I.E.L.D. destroyed, Tony Stark attempts to create a peacekeeping program with a self-aware, self-teaching artificial intelligence called Ultron. This backfires on The Avengers when Ultron decides the human race is the enemy and must be destroyed. The Avengers again team up to save the world. Directed by Joss Whedon (The Avengers, Serenity).
The film once features Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, the Hulk, Black Widow, Hawkeye, Nick Fury and Maria Hill, but there are also new well known characters making an appearance. The twin children of Magneto (Yes, Magneto from X-men), Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch make an appearance along with Scarlet Witch’s husband, Vision.
Release Date: May 1, 2015.
4. San Andreas
A movie with The Rock that actually looks good? San Andreas seems like an updated version of the movie 2012, except rather than a tsunami, The Rock and his family fight for survival against the largest earthquake mankind has ever seen. To make the movie relevant to the entire country, the trailer includes the line “Even though this is happening here in California, you will feel it on the East coast.”
Get terrified ladies and gentlemen, San Andreas is coming.
Release Date: May 29, 2015.
Not much needs to be said about the new Star Wars movie, except that it looks like it’s going to live up to the franchises legend.
