Most anticipated films of 2014

As the days inch closer to the premiere dates of our anticipated movies for the last quarter of the year, I’ve made a list of the films which will soon hit the big screen next year and will send movie freaks lining up on movie houses eager to be the first to watch and spoil features themselves. Here is the list of movies to watch for on 2014.

JANUARY | Lone Survivor (January 10)  

 Action | Drama | Thriller 

 With a number of horror flicks premiering on January, starting the year with these movies might not be a good idea. But this movie which is based on real events might be worth taking your time.

The Story

In RoboCop, the year is 2028 and multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the center of robot technology. Overseas, their drones have been used by the military for years - and it's meant billions for OmniCorp's bottom line. Now OmniCorp wants to bring their controversial technology to the home front, and they see a golden opportunity to do it. When Alex Murphy (Joel Kinnaman) - a loving husband, father and good cop doing his best to stem the tide of crime and corruption in Detroit - is critically injured in the line of duty, OmniCorp sees their chance for a part-man, part-robot police officer. OmniCorp envisions a RoboCop in every city and even more billions for their shareholders, but they never counted on one thing: there is still a man inside the machine pursuing justice (IMDb).
