– X-Men: Days of Future Past is the latest of the X-Men movies, and attempts to both follow a major X-Men comic book arc. In the future, Mutants are hunted to near extinction by the robotic Sentinels. As a last-ditch effort to save the world, they use Kitty Pryde’s mostly unused power of the ability to send a consciousness back in time. Wolverine is selected so that he can go back 50 years to bring Charles Xavier and Magento together to stop Mystique from killing the creator of the Sentinels. This is also serving as a way to bring both the old and new casts together and reset continuity so that after all the movies, only X-Men: First Class is considered canon.

– Godzilla (the 2014 version) is considered a reboot of the franchise but at the same time paying homage to the original series of Godzilla movies. In this movie, a nuclear plant supervisor’s wife is killed in a meltdown and uncovers that nuclear tests have been cover ups for attempts to kill massive kaiju, including Godzilla with little success. Once Godzilla appears, it’s up to the giant lizard to fight the other kaiju and humanity can only look on as things get destroyed.

– The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is the sequel to the 2012 reboot movie of Spider-Man, and this one looks like it’s going dangerously close to Spider-Man 3 with too many villains. Peter and Gwen graduate high school while trying balance their relationship with Peter being Spider-Man. But somehow even though in the first movie they had no connection, Peter’s childhood friend, Harry Osborne comes back to New York City while his dad is dying. Spider-Man saves the man who becomes Electro, and Spider-Man must battle because he forgets his name. To top it all off, Peter must find out what really happened to his parents and the secrets they left behind. Plus it looks like Paul Giamatti as the Rhino only happens for five minutes in the movie.

– Blu, Jewel and now 3 kids leave Rio de Jeneiro (which kind of defeats the purpose of calling it Rio?) to go to the Amazon jungle in search of a lost group of Macaws.

– Captain America: The Winter Soldier is the next movie in the Marvel line-up and takes place after the events of the Avengers have changed both Captain America and S.H.I.E.L.D. It’s become a much less covert and has to deal with politics, while Cap tries to get used to the modern world. However, things change quickly when someone from Steve Roger’s past shows up as a new enemy and tries to take down S.H.I.E.L.D. Every review I’ve seen about the movie says that this is definitely not one to miss and if you’ve been watching Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. things supposedly make a big impact on the show. So make sure you see Captain America: The Winter Soldier before the next episode!
– Stars Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Samuel L. Jackson, Robert Redford, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Cobie Smulders, Frank Grillo, Hayley Atwell, and Toby Jones. Directed by Anthony Russo & Joe Russo. Rated PG-13.
– Noah is somewhat based on the story of Noah from the Old Testament. Apparently there were six different cuts of the movie that they tried and then finally just went with the director’s version. The problem is that the trailer makes it seem like a lot of extra stuff that happens in the movie, but all the summaries that I can see basically give a one sentence summary of the story of the bible. So you might be on your own other than Noah is called of God to save animals and his family before a great flood comes and wipes out the wicked from the earth.
– Stars Russell Crowe, Jennifer Connelly, Emma Watson, Anthony Hopkins, Logan Lerman, Ray Winstone, Nick Nolte, Kevin Durand, and Frank Langella. Directed by Darren Aronofsky. Rated PG-13.
– Muppets Most Wanted seems to be very similar to to the The Great Muppet Caper but with a twist (I think that’s a good thing). After the Muppet movie, the Muppets go on tour around the world. However when the evil Constantine, the world’s biggest criminal and Kermit lookalike, escapes and trades places with Kermit. The Muppets end up helping Constantine commit crimes and Kermit is stuck in jail. We’re really looking forward to the movie and we loved the first one. Almost no Muppet movie can go wrong. And just like all Muppet movies, the movie is full of cameos which would make having the entire cast list on here much too long.
– Stars Ricky Gervais, Ty Burrell, and Tina Fey . Directed by James Bobin. Rated PG.
