Must See Films this Spring
With Spring well and truly on it’s way (YAY), we have been taking a look at some of the films hitting our screen this season. From the return of the hottest ensemble cast in The Avengers to a live-action remake of a Disney classic, there is a film for every Jane this season!
Check out our top 7 must see films this season…
RELEASE DATE: 20 March
The Talent: Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Naomi Watts, Kate Winslet
At first we thought the Divergent series would be a rubbish version of the Hunger Games, but fabulous casting in the form of Theo James, has made us very excited to catch Insurgent, the second instalment. The plot follows on from the previous film as Tris (Shailene Woodley) and Four (James) are on the run searching for allies and answers in the wake of the uprising.
RELEASE DATE: 27 March
The Talent: Lily James, Cate Blanchett, Richard Madden, Helena Bonham Carter
The wait is finally over! The hotly anticipated live-action remake of Walt Disney’s Cinderella will be released at the end of March. The story principally mirrors the 1950 animated adaption, but there are a few twists to watch out for. Unlike Disney’s classic, this version sees Cinderella (Lily James) and The Prince (Richard Madden) meet before the fateful ball…will this change the course of their love story?
WHILE WE’RE YOUNG
RELEASE DATE: 3 April
The Talent: Ben Stiller, Naomi Watts, Adam Driver, Amanda Seyfried
It’s another midlife crisis tale, but we have high hopes for While We’re Young. The story follows Josh (Ben Stiller) and Cornelia (Naomi Watts) a couple in their mid-40’s, who befriend a pair of 25-year-old’s (Adam Driver and Amanda Seyfried) and embark upon some wild adventures. However, their age soon catches up to them…
AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON
RELEASE DATE: 24 April
The Talent: Robert Downey Jr, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson
We are not embarrassed to reveal that the trailer for the Avengers sequel gave us the ultimate nerdgasm. Our favourite ensemble cast returns, including Robert Downey Jr as Ironman, Chris Hemsworth as Thor and Chris Evans as Captain America. There are also some newbies on the scene such as Aaron Taylor-Johnson who will be playing Quicksilver. This time round the Avengers must work together to defeat Ultron, who plans to eradicate all humans from Earth.
RELEASE DATE: 8 May
The Talent: Reese Witherspoon, Sofia Vergara
We had a look at the first trailer for Hot Pursuit here. Initially we thought it might be a little too slapstick for our liking, but we reckon Reese Witherspoon will elevate the film and make it a worthy watch.Check out the trailer here.
PITCH PERFECT 2
RELEASE DATE: May 15
The Talent: Anna Kendrick, Brittany Snow, Rebel Wilson
No one is more excited for the return of the Barden Bellas as much as all of us here at Average Janes HQ! The cast will all be returning, with a few newbies including Hailee Steinfeld (Begin Again, True Grit) and Golden Globe Award winner Katey Sagal. This time, the Barden Bellas are heading to an international acappella competition that no American group has ever won before. Will they be the first? Watch the trailer here now!
RELEASE DATE: 12 June
The Talent: Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Jake Johnson
Twenty-two years after the events of Jurassic Park, Isla Nebula, an island near Costa Rica, now features a fully functioning Dinosaur theme park. To boost visitor attendance, the park’s geneticists create the Indominus Rex, a genetically modified hybrid dinosaur, but it soon breaks loose and causes havoc in the park. The film has been ten years in the making, so prepare for something special, and if that fails at least we have Chris Pratt to ogle at. See the awesome trailer here.
