2015 Sony Pictures Preview!

Well, Sony certainly had a tumultuous year in 2014, both at the box office and in the headlines. The studio took a massive beating from critics and fans alike for THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2, but evened things out with 22 JUMP STREET and THE EQUALIZER, taking 4th with 12.2% of the studio market share, netting $1.2 billion in ticket sales. With THE INTERVIEW controversy and hacking debacle hopefully behind them, the studio has a solid line-up for 2015, including a James Bond sequel, New flicks from seasoned directors Robert Zemeckis, Jonathan Demme, and Cameron Crowe, a SHORT CIRCUIT-meets-ROBOCOP actioner in the spring, a Seth Rogen/Joseph Gordon-Levitt Christmas comedy, and a Will Smith sports drama. There's a few lame sequels and some interesting smaller pics as well, but the good seems to outweigh the bad. If North Korea stays off their backs and they're able to deliver on the higher profile projects, then it looks like Sony could very well make 2015 a hit year.

Take a look at their full roster and let us know which ones you're most looking forward to!

The Wedding Ringer (January 16)

Jimmy provides best man services for socially challenged guys, who – for whatever reason – have no one close enough to agree to stand by them on the day of their wedding. Doug, a groom-to-be, has found himself in just such a situation, but, to make matters worse, he fabricates the names of not only a best man but nine groomsmen as well. When all else fails, Doug seeks out Jimmy’s services to carry out a charade designed to make Doug look his best, but threatens to destroy everything if it fails.

Starring: Josh Gad, Kevin Hart, and Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting. Directed by Jeremy Garelick.

I'd be way more interested in this if it wasn't Adam Sandler.
Still, maybe the concept will be enough to make this an entertaining film.

For some reason, I can't reply to your comment on my phone. Albert Brooks plays a doctor in the movie.

I'm cautiously optimistic

but Blomkamp put together a great cast. Hugh Jackman's always worth watching.
