Every year I look ahead and pick 10 films from the upcoming slate that I am interested in seeing. Some years I pick well, other years, not so much. You can see my 2015 picks here. I picked 2 of the worst films of 2015, 1 film I didn’t see, and 1 that didn’t even get release. Of those picked I only really loved Knight of Cups, although I will defend Jupiter Ascending, Blackhat and Tomorrowland, 3 films dismissed by most which I quite enjoyed.
Along with the 10 I have picked, I am also looking forward to seeing all of the yet-to-be-released-in-Australia-2015 films: The Hateful Eight, Anomalisa, Steve Jobs, Sherpa, Sunset Song, Son of Saul, etc.
