Starring Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike, Gone Girl follows the thrilling tale of a wife who goes missing on her 5th wedding anniversary. Directed by David Fincher, the gripping 2014 hit was a gutsy adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s 2012 mystery novel - one not to be missed.
One of the most anticipated movies of the year is the adaptation of the popular children's story, Paddington. The talking, marmalade-loving bear, originally created by Michael Bond, travels to London and befriends a young English boy in this touching tale for all the family. It has a stellar cast including Nicole Kidman, Hugh Bonneville, Julie Walters, Matt Lucas and Jim Broadbent and is directed by Paul King.
Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, Christian Bale and Amy Adams star in a glitzy 70s tale of two con artists forced by an FBI agent to get involved with a sting operation to oust corrupt politicians. Directed by David O. Russell, the star-studded cast put on a fabulous performance that has to go on your 'to watch' list!
Simon Bird, James Buckley, Blake Harrison and Joe Thomas return as Jay, Neil, Simon and Will in a side-splitting sequel to first Inbetweeners film. Directors Damon Beesley and Iain Morris certainly didn't disappoint as they brought to life a whole new string of hilarious stories and antics as number two follows the lads on a trip to see Jay in Australia. Prepare for sore stomach muscles...
Director Mike Leigh brings to life the incredible life story of the eccentric British painter J.M.W. Turner. Starring Timothy Spall as Turner, along with Paul Jesson, Dorothy Atkinson and Marion Bailey, the film transports you back to the nineteenth century for a very interesting journey with the cantankerous artist.
Julianne Moore, Robert Pattinson, Mia Wasikowska and John Cusack came together to star in satirical drama, Maps to The Stars, directed by David Cronenberg. The plot follows two former child actors in life after fame and makes a statement about today's entertainment industry within the Western world.
Brad Pitt plays the lead in this emotional American war drama set during World War II. Supported by actors Logan Lerman, Shia LaBeouf, Michael Pena and Jon Bernthal, Pitt stars as a battle-hardened U.S. Army Sergeant fighting against Nazi Germany. If action adventures are your preference, Fury will have you glued to your TV screen from start to finish.
A team of astronauts travel through a wormhole in search of a planet habitable enough to sustain humanity in this sci-fi hit starring Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Mackenzie Foy and Michael Caine. Directed by Christopher Nolan, whose notable credits include the Batman series, Inception and Man Of Steel, Interstellar is a truly beautiful piece of film you simply cannot miss.
Starring Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Glenn Close and Benicio del Toro, the Marvel Comics superhero movie, Guardians Of The Galaxy, sees a group of extraterrestrial misfits go on the run after stealing an orb. The tenth installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe was directed by James Gunn, who wrote the screenplay with Nicole Perlman.
The Homesman is an 1850s period drama that deserves epic status. As well as the atmospheric set, the midwestern movie tells a heartbreaking tale of transporting immigrants back home. Tommy Lee Jones stars in, produces and directs the moody hit which firmly makes it into our top 10.
