Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (August 2014) 



Apparently there is nothing "bouncy and fun" about Michael Bay's reworking of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (TMNT) into an action-packed movie. An alien invasion on Earth accidently spawns the four famous mutated reptilian warriors we know as the Ninja Turtles, who rise up to protect humans from the invasion.

Thomas (Dylan O’Brien) awakes inside a lift with his memory erased. When the lift doors open he finds himself surrounded by a community of boys living inside a strange stone-walled maze known as the Glade. They soon realise they are trapped inside this maze and must team up with fellow ‘runners’ if they are to stand any chance at escaping their ever-changing prison.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 (November 2014)



Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth return for the third instalment of The Hunger Games trilogy but taking their queue from the makers of the Twilight series, the last book has been broken into two films.

Katniss reluctantly becomes the symbol of a mass rebellion against the Capitol but where will they leave it in preparation for part two is anyone's guess.
