2014 was a great year for films. There were the hyper-hyped blockbusters like The Grand Budapest Hotel, The Theory of Everything and Interstellar, but also there were lower budget films like Nightcrawler, Whiplash, Lilting, Kajaki, Still Life and Wild that deserve to be remembered for years to be come.
2015 looks to be a big year for superhero and action movies, but there are also a number of quirkier films that I am looking forward to.
Below are trailers for the top 5 films that I am most intrigued and excited about.
