Snowpiercer

Director: Joon-ho Bong

Cast: Chris Evans, Jamie Bell, Tilda Swinton, Ed Harris

Genre: Sci-Fi

Plot: Another comic adaptation, based on the French graphic novel Le Transperceneige, this sci-fi action thriller is set in a future where all life on the planet has been wiped out by a global warming-instigated Ice Age. Everyone except the inhabitants of the Snowpiercer, a train powered by a perpetual-motion engine. Cue sociological breakdown and conflict aplenty.

US Release Date: 2014

Foxcatcher

Director: Bennett Miller

Cast: Steve Carell, Mark Ruffalo, Channing Tatum

Genre: Drama

Plot: Steve Carell ditches the comedy in favour of a prosthetic nose in this true-life drama. He plays John Du Pont, the American millionaire who was convicted in 1997 of murdering his friend Dave Schultz, the Olympic wrestler. With director Bennett Miller calling the shots (after directing Brad Pitt and Jonah Hill to Oscar nominations with Moneyball ), this looks set to be a hard-hitting drama destined for Academy glory.

Director: Angelina Jolie

Cast: Garrett Hedlund, Domhnall Gleeson, Jack O'Connell

Genre: War drama

Jolie will shoot the film on location in Australia.

The Seventh Son

Director: Sergey Bodrov

Cast: Kit Harington, Julianne Moore, Jeff Bridges, Ben Barnes

Genre : Fantasy Adventure

Fantastic Four (2015) (3D)

Director: Josh Trank

Cast: TBC

Genre: Superhero Adventure

Plot: Comics legend Mark Millar oversees the reinvention of one of Marvel's few modern cinematic outings to date, which bodes well for a franchise that - while doing well enough to garner a sequel - never really set the box office alight. Presumably, it's be another origin redux, following the escapades of genius scientist Reed Richards, his lover Sue Storm, her boisterous brother Johnny Storm and Reed's friend Benjamin Grimm, as they embark on a trial spaceflight. Unfortunately, it doesn't go too well - meaning they all return to earth with a few added superpowers including invisibility, super-stretchiness, pyrokinesis and a rock-hard monstrous exterior.

UK Release Date: TBC

US Release Date: 6 March 2015

The Penguins of Madagascar (3D)

Director: Simon J. Smith

Cast: Benedict Cumberbatch, John Malkovich, Andy Richter, Tom McGrath, Chris Miller, Christopher Knights

Genre: CGI Animation Comedy

Plot: Anthropomorphism-loving director Simon J. Smith ( Bee Movie ) has been hired by Dreamworks to spin the kid-popular penguins from Madagascar out into their own movie to be released after Madagascar 3 . Expect lots of super stunts and slapstick.

UK Release Date: 27 March 2015

US Release Date: 27 March 2015

Fast & Furious 7

Director: TBC

Cast: Dwayne Johnson, Vin Diesel, Jason Statham

Genre: Action

Plot: Franchise director Justin Lin won't be returning, but we do know that the closing scene of 6 will cameo a major new villain - Jason Statham! Due to the tragic death of Paul Walker, however, what will happen to the story of everyone's favourite car thief gang is up in the air.

UK Release Date: 10 April 2015

US Release Date: 10 April 2015

The Avengers 2: Age of Ultron

Director : Joss Whedon

Cast: James Spader, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen

Genre: Superhero Adventure

Plot: All the usual superheroes will be back, and this time they have enemies/potential help in the form of Aaron Taylor-Johnson's Quicksilver and his sister Scarlet Witch, as played by Elizabeth Olsen.

The plot will be written by Whedon again, so expect zingers aplenty - but this time the threat looks to be more robotic, as James Spader is definitely on board to voice one of their most dangerous comic book foes - the artificial intelligence, super bad-ass robot Ultron.

UK Release Date: 1 May 2015

US Release Date: 1 May 2015

Pitch Perfect 2
