January 2015 Movie Guide

click to see all 4 character posters from Mortdecai.

These are my picks (complete with the reason for my choice) for the movies coming to theaters in January, but feel free to check out all of January's releases by visiting the Internet Movie Database's Coming Soon page.



week of January 2

The first Friday in January usually doesn't see much in the way of releases since so much comes out for Christmas, but there area few this year. I can't say I'm thrilled about any of them tho.  I could recommend The Woman In Black 2: Angel of Death, but I'm not sure if I'm going to see it myself.  If I'd seen any of the [REC] series, I'd probably recommend [REC] 4: Apocalypse.


Liam Neeson in Taken 3
week of January 9

Director: Olivier Megaton
Why? Liam is back to kick some more ass in the final installment of this franchise. What more is there to know?


Chris Hemsworth in Blackhat. Click to see the rest of this gif set.
week of January 16

Director: Michael Mann
Why? Thor as a criminal hacker recruited by the government directed by the director of Heat.


The Boy Next Door
week of January 23

Director: Rob Cohen
Why? It's a thriller with J-Lo as a desperate housewife.

Director: David Koepp
Why? This looks really funny, and the cast is great.


New Poster just added for Project Almanac Jan 30, 2015  directed by Dean Israelite, with stars Amy Landecker Sofia Black-D’Elia Virginia Gardner Jonny Weston Hillary Harley
week of January 30

Director: Dean Israelite
Why? The concept of screwing up things via time travel never really gets old, at least for me.  I think it will be interesting to mix in the found-footage medium. I've been looking forward to this movie since it was called Welcome To Yesterday, so I'm glad it's finally coming out.

Director: David Gelb

Why? There isn't much info on this yet, which is surprising since it's coming out in a month… or is it? While IMDb lists it on their January page, the movie's page says February.  That's still a short amount of time to not be able to even find a poster or trailer online for it. All search results lead to some AIDS documentary that Bono is involved with.  With little information to go on, I'm still a fan of the cast and the concept. Here's the synopsis from IMDb: "A group of medical students discover a way to bring dead patients back to life."
