5 Under-The-Radar Movies We Can’t Wait To See

We highlight 5 upcoming films this year that deserve a little more limelight.

While we’re excited about the massive blockbusters sequels, superhero stories and reboots this year, there’s a lot of interesting and unique-looking movies getting overlooked; so here’s our five under-the-radar movies we can’t wait to watch:


Release: September 2015

There’s been a serious lack of comedy horrors recently, but Cooties should scratch that itch this year. This isn’t a movie for kids, but rather a zombie movie about kids who become infected with a virus and turn into bloodthirsty monsters. It’s teachers versus students, with Elijah Wood, Alison Pill, Rainn Wilson, and Jack McBrayer all starring. Parents and conservatives are going to have a field day with that plot summary.

The Man from U.N.C.L.E.

Release: August 2015

Henry Cavill takes a break from playing Superman for a Guy Richie-directed spy movie based on the 60s television show, The Man from U.N.C.L.E. Set against the backdrop of the Cold War, The Man from U.N.C.L.E. centers on CIA agent Solo (Cavill) and KGB agent Kuryakin (Armie Hammer). Forced to put aside long-standing hostilities, the two team up on a joint mission to stop a mysterious international criminal organisation.

Mazer Runner: The Scorch Trials

Release: September 2015

The Maze Runner was one of the surprising hits last year and we can’t wait to see what the sequel has in store. Based upon the book series, The Scorch Trials marks the second chapter of the story and picks up where The Maze Runner left off: Thomas (Dylan O’Brien) and the Gladers have escaped — or so they think. We should find out if the WCKED corperation is actually good, or have the kids fallen into another trap?

In the Heart of the Sea

Release: December 2015

Chris Hemsworth is showing that he is so much more than just Thor, as the Australian actor is starring in another big epic this year, In the Heart of the Sea, a tale set in 1820 about the New England whaling ship Essex which was assaulted by something no one could believe: a whale of mammoth size and will, and an almost human sense of vengeance. The real-life maritime disaster would inspire Herman Melville’s Moby-Dick. But that told only half the story. In the Heart of the Sea reveals the encounter’s harrowing aftermath, as the ship’s surviving crew is pushed to their limits and forced to do the unthinkable to stay alive.

Crimson Peak

Release: October 2015

While we’re excited for Pacific Rim 2, any year where Guillermo del Toro releases a new horror movie is a year worth looking forward to, and Crimson Peak looks like another intimate, horror experience we can’t afford to miss. Crimson Peak tells the story of a young woman (Mia Wasikowska) who slowly develops misgivings about her charming husband (Tom Hiddleston). Del Toro has kept relatively mum on the film’s details thus far, and even sneak peeks do little more than show off elements of design, but it looks gorgeous, mysterious and downright terrifying.

    I am looking forward to seeing Maze Runner. The first one was great, really didn’t expect how good it really was. In the heart of the sea is going to be one amazing trip. Can’t wait for that.

    I actually want to go watch all the original The Man from U.N.C.L.E. movies with my dad.

      Maze Runner was a massive surprise for me. Was blown away by how good and grown-up the film was, and the acting was great. Very excited for Scorch Trials.

      Never seen the old Man from U.N.C.L.E. stuff – definitely want to check it out!
