Quantcast

2015 Lionsgate Preview!

Lionsgate had a decent year for 2014, despite dropping two spots to seventh place in the studio spread for the year, taking 7.1% of the market share with $736.9 Million in ticket sales. This year sees a smaller slate from the growing studio, which will continue it's next YA franchise series to the sequel test with THE DIVERGENT SERIES: INSURGENT, while closing out its cash cow, THE HUNGER GAMES. There's potential franchise potential with Vin Diesel's THE LAST WITCH HUNTER and some riskier fare such as the long-delayed CHILD 44, CRIMINAL, and the secretive project AMERICAN ULTRA. While not as explosive a line-up as last year, there's still a few select choices among this list that may well be surprise hits.

Take a look at the line-up and let us know which ones you're looking forward to the most!
