cinema-2014

With 2015 looking like the year of the sequel, 2014 is very much an original affair with the likes of 12 Years a Slave, The Wolf of Wall Street, The Lego Movie and George Clooney’s Monuments Men all being released. That said, there are still a fair few sequels being released this year including the likes of Captain America: Winter Soldier, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, 300: Rise of an Empire and Muppets Most Wanted and The Raid 2: Berandal. Reboots this year include the latest Jack Ryan movie with Chris Pine taking the lead role in Shadow Recruit and a remake of Robocop.

Collectively the HeyUGuys team have come together to bring you all of our most anticipated movies of 2014. There’s an awful lot to read here but we hope that it will help you to plan your cinematic diaries for the coming year. A lot of the movies don’t have release dates as yet but we’ll try and get these updated as and when they have released dates announced.

So, without further ado, we give you the HeyUGuys most anticipated movies of 2014…..

Chiwetel-Ejiofor-in-12-Years-a-Slave

12 Years a Slave

  • UK release date: 10th January
  • US release date: Out Now
  • Director: Steve McQueen
  • Cast: Chiwetel Ejiofor, Dwight Henry, Dickie Gravois, Scoot McNairy, Paul Giamatti, Benedict Cumberbatch, Paul Dano, Michael Fassbender, Sarah Paulson and Brad Pitt

Kicking off his directorial career with a pair of stunning films, Turner Prize-winning video artist Steve McQueen (not that one) staked his claim as one of the world’s best new directors when he released Hunger and Shame in 2008 and 2011 respectively. This January’s release of 12 Years a Slave should be all the proof we need to convince the world of McQueen’s greatness. Released already to rave reviews in America, the film is being hotly tipped to clean up come awards season where it will be in strong contention for best picture, director, actor (Chiwetel Ejiofor), and supporting actor (Michael Fassbender) awards, among others.

Adapted from the 1853 autobiography by Solomon Northup, 12 Years a Slave portrays a harrowing account of Northup’s kidnapping and subsequent life as a slave on various plantations across the American south. It features a phenomenal cast lead by the aforementioned Ejoifor and backed up by an endless list of acting talent featuring Michael Fassbender, Benedict Cumberbatch, Brad Pitt and Paul Giamatti. It might be arriving very early in 2014 but we don’t think people will have forgotten about this film come next Christmas.
