As we say goodbye to 2015 and look forward to all that 2016 has to offer, we’ve put together our year-end list of the top 10 films of 2015. It’s been another amazing year at the movies. The independent side of the industry has delivered every bit as good as the studio-funded, with so many great films released from the very beginning of the year right through to the end.

It’s that time of year. Amazingly, there are only two weeks separating us from Christmas. So if you’re struggling for ideas for those hard-to-buy-for people on your list, we thought we’d try to spark some inspiration with a run-down of the latest and greatest movies and TV shows this year’s had to offer.

Filming is already underway in New York on John Wick 2, the sequel to last year’s action favourite. Keanu Reeves is returning in the titular leading role, and now he’s got a handful of new and familiar faces joining the line-up alongside him. Continue reading
Last year, David Leitch and Chad Stahelski came out of pretty much nowhere with their Keanu Reeves-led actioner, John Wick.

If the blockbuster sequel performs as expected, it will be the first film of the year to gross more than $100m. in a three-day opening – technically American Sniper did over the long MLK weekend, but that was four days. But it will only be the highest-grossing film of the year for four weeks, before Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron dominates at the start of May. Fortunately for us in the UK, we’ll be getting it a week early, and I can’t wait for it to hit.
Furious 7 – April 3rd US, UK
Since reigniting the franchise six years ago with Fast & Furious, Universal has had string of successively bigger and bigger hits. Fast & Furious 6 was the first film in the series to deliver more than three quarters of a billion dollars at the global box office, and with Furious 7 estimated to open to over $100m. in the US alone, there’s every chance it will once more outperform its predecessor.
