Photo Mania: The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, Jurassic World, and More
Following Monday’s trailers and yesterday’s posters, today is all about the photos. As we get closer to the new year, it makes sense we’d start getting more and more 2015 movies. Below you’ll find five (yes, five!) 2015 releases – Jurassic World, Fast & Furious 7, The Last Witch Hunter, Tak3n, and Results. The two movies from this year – The Hunger Games: Catching Fire – Part 1 and Gone Girl – aren’t exactly movies to scoff at either.
Check out all the star-studded photos below!
First up belongs to the most anticipated movie of perhaps the entire year. Up to this point, both Hunger Games movies have turned out to be huge draws while being successful with critics. Francis Lawrence is back at it for the third movie – The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 – as he tries to adapt what is generally considered the worst of the three novels. We’ll see for sure when the movie releases on November 21st but until then you can check out the gallery of photos below that includes stars Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth, and newcomer (to the franchise) Natalie Dormer (Captain America: The First Avenger).

Shifting to next year, I wanted to include a new photo for Colin Trevorrow’s (Safety Not Guaranteed) Jurassic World. The fourth film in the franchise doesn’t seem to have a lot of connection to the previous ones but that doesn’t mean there are absolutely no connections. The new photo (available above) doesn’t show off any of the stars (namely Chris Pratt) but you’ll see them soon when we finally get a trailer. If you didn’t know, the movie releases on June 12, 2015.

I also found a new gallery of photos for David Fincher’s (The Social Network) anticipated adaptation of Gone Girl. The fantastic novel was written by Gillian Flynn (who also wrote the screenplay for the movie). As for talent, the movie stars Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike (The World’s End) – both of which are featured below – so I’d be excited for this movie if you aren’t already. Check out all the photos below before the movie releases on October 3rd!
I also wanted to include two new photos (one including the late Paul Walker) for next year’s Fast & Furious 7. Like Jurassic World, we’re waiting on a trailer still for this action franchise film. However, until then you can see the two photos featuring star Vin Diesel (more to come on him later) above. James Wan (The Conjuring) is in charge of this one and it releases April 3, 2015.

Even before Diesel posted the Fast & Furious photos, he showed off his insane beard in next year’s The Last Witch Hunter. I don’t usually like to use the word “epic” because it is grossly overused. However, I don’t know a better way to describe Vin Diesel’s beard in Breck Eisner’s (The Crazies) supernatural film. Check out the photo above while waiting for an official release date.

Continuing with the theme of next year, I have the first three photos for Tak3n (the official title for Taken 3). Like you can see, the movie again stars Liam Neeson (need I say more?). Olivier Megaton returns as director on January 9, 2015. Check out the three new photos below! (Source: /Film)
Perhaps the only movie you haven’t heard of before today is the rom-com Results. Although you may not have heard of it, you’ve definitely heard of stars Cobie Smulders (CBS’ How I Met Your Mother) and Guy Pearce (Memento). This unlikely duo is directed by Andrew Bujalksi (Computer Chess). Like The Last Witch Hunter, this one is awaiting an official date. (Source: HitFix)
