If superpowers, advanced technology, badass characters and sexy bodies (HELLO Chris Hemsworth) are kind of your thing, then you can be sure to look forward to the upcoming months. With our favourite heroes making a return to the big screen, here are three sequels we’re pumped to see!
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
Queen Jennifer Lawrence returns as the badass Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, the second of four movies in The Hunger Games series. Based on the best-selling novel by Suzanne Collins, Katniss and Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) are thrust back into fighting for their lives as they become targets of the Capitol. Having won the 74th Hunger Games in a unique and unconventional way, their victory sparks a rebellion in the Districts of Panem.
As someone who was completely obsessed with the books, I can’t wait to see this! Seeing from the film’ s innovative costumes, awesome special effects and a cast that also boasts the likes of Donald Sutherland, Phillip Seymour Hoffman and Jena Malone, I am really banking on this to do well!
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire comes out in theatres November 22.
Thor: The Dark World
If there’s a fandom that will make Tumblr go crazy, it’s the Hiddlestoners. With Tom Hiddleston making a return as Loki, his character might just be more popular than the title role of Thor, played by Chris Hemsworth.
That being said, the two return as sibling rivals in Thor: The Dark World, giving fans more of a reason to rejoice. In the second installment of this Marvel series, Thor is faced with an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand. Forcing him to go on a dangerous journey, it’s one that can ultimately help him save the world and reunite him with his lover Jane Foster (Natalie Portman).
I can’t lie and say I don’t agree with the Hiddlestoners. This film is truly filled with beautiful and talented people! While seeing a shirtless Hemsworth completely justifies paying for a movie ticket, I do have to say he is the perfect Thor. Not only does he look like the character, his accent is absolutely brilliant!
Thor: The Dark World comes out in theatres November 8.
X-Men: Days of Future Past
And you thought Thor: The Dark World has a beautiful cast? After seeing the trailer for this, I’m pretty sure this movie takes the cake.
As the second installment of the revived series comes back to the big screen, the film will see the ultimate X-Men ensemble fight a war for the survival of the species across two time periods. And if that doesn’t sound epic enough for you, one can also expect to see characters from the original X-Men film trilogy joining forces with their younger selves!
With a cast that features the likes of Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy, Anna Paquin, Peter Dinklage, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, Halle Berry and Hugh Jackman (yikes, it’s tiring naming them all!), this film just screams “MONEY IN THE BANK!” Obviously with an A-List cast and a trailer so awesome it gives you chills, I’m already looking forward to the film’s Springtime release.
X-Men: Days of Future Past comes out in theatres May 23, 2014.
