Stars Brendan Gleeson (In Bruges and The Guard) and Chris O’Dowd (The IT Crowd).

 

7. Muppets Most Wanted  Director James Bobin
Bobin returns to direct the second of the modern day Muppets, and a healthy dose of Muppets is good for the soul. 

 

8. The Lego Movie  Directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller
Are you kidding? My favorite toy ever! I don’t know what it’s about but I’m in. 

 

9. Nymphomaniac  Director Lars von Trier (Melancholia)
I’m scared, yet very curious, but quite scared!


10. Into the Woods  Director Rob Marshall (Chicago) 
I’m simply curious to see how Hollywood can fuck up yet another great Broadway musical.

 

A couple more honorable mentions: Knight Of Cups (Director Terrence Malick), Exodus (Director Ridley Scott), and of course Interstellar.
