Films, Games, TV and Music: What Does 2014 Have in Store?

Page 1 of 41234

2013 saw Iron Man 3 break the $1 billion club, Grand Theft Auto V smash sales records, Daft Punk permeate everyone’s summer playlists and Netflix redefine the term ‘binge watching’, not to mention a certain Walter White… It was a pretty startling year, and even though Breaking Bad had to say goodbye, there’s plenty to look forward to in 2014 for lovers of film, games, music and TV, and here are the highlights.

Breaking BadBreaking Bad defined a binge-ready, streaming-happy 2013, so what does 2014 hold?

Films

The Oscars

Film lovers are generally divided into sections, and the Oscars can define these sections. Some think the Oscars are a waste of time, politically fuelled and not indicative of true quality, while rest simply argue as to who should take home the golden statuettes.

Whatever your opinion, March 2nd 2014 is the biggest date in the cinematic calendar as we prepare for a battle between the old guard and the new blood. Tom Hanks and Leonardo DiCaprio could be deserved winners on any other year, but Chiwitel Ejiofor’s efforts as Solomon Northrup in Steve McQueen’s 12 Years a Slave seems to have enamored even those with a passing interest in the film.

Noah

This is one of the riskiest projects of 2014, and an epic trailer released just before the turn of the year has reignited interest in Darren Aronofsky’s biblical trailblazer. Having helmed Requiem for a Dream and Black Swan, Aronofsky certainly has a solid reputation to maintain, but the questionable cast comprising Russell Crowe, Emma Watson and Ray Winstone could prove a very public undoing.

Superhero Crazy

X-Men: Days of Future PastX-Men: Days of Future Past is one of 2014's most hotly anticipated movies

If a theme of 2013 was superhero films, then 2014 is set to be defined by them; Guardians of The Galaxy, Transformers: Age of Extinction, The Amazing Spiderman 2 and X-Men: Days of Future Past are just a few to look forward to. The genre has gone from niche superfan-pleaser to mainstream must for studios, proving the emergence of the geek and providing all-action blockbusters along the way.
