2015 Fox Preview!

20th Century Fox had a stellar year in 2014, taking the top spot for studio market share with 17.3% and $1.7 Billion in ticket sales. With hits like X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST, DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES, HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON 2, GONE GIRL, RIO 2, and THE FAULT IN OUR STARS, amongst others, FOX brought in the masses last year. 2015 is another big line-up with an expected line-up of sequels/reboots (TAKEN 3, POLTERGEIST, THE FANTASTIC FOUR, and THE MAZE RUNNER: THE SCORCH TRIALS among them) and a bigger focus on new properties, from the much-buzzed KINGSMAN: THE SECRET SERVICE, HOME, SPY, VICTOR FRANKENSTEIN, THE MARTIAN, JOY, THE REVENANT. Strong talent and compelling material particularly for the aforementioned pics give Fox a great opportunity to have another great year.

Is it me or does Daniel Radcliffe look a little like Kurt Cobain? I could totally see him playing in a biopic based on Cobain's life.

A THIN LINE UP INDEED

Other than Terminator and Mission Impossible, not too much. Paramount needs to get into the game a little here and quit resting on the Star Trek 3-4 year model. Lots of Sci-Fi source material out there that could be franchised. Forget Superhero stuff until about 2040.

I was almost going to type you forgot about Star Wars, until I remembered they no longer have anything to do with those new films. Guess I'm to accustomed to that logo and fanfare in front of each star wars film.

To be fair...

while Fox might be looking at the worst of what there is to offer in the sequel/superhero realm, they also promise the largest number of purely original films of any releasing company. It would be really unfortunate if they end up the losers this year, since that says original films really ARE on the way out.

This looks like a lot of fun and moving out of fall was smart. Besides the left over Oscar nominated films, there is nothing really good out right now. This will clean house when it drops.
