AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON (May 1)
The original Avengers was a magic-trick that can only be performed once, which means this time around Marvel Studios is going to have to deliver a blockbuster with meat, teeth and muscle beyond "We did it! Everyone's onscreen at once!" Can the Hollywood studio on the hottest hot-streak since Disney Animation in the 90s make a miracle happen twice?

MAD MAX: FURY ROAD (May 15)
George Miller is back in the desert. He brought the cars, blood and dust with him but isn't going to force us to deal with the presence of Mel Gibson. Hurrah!

TOMORROWLAND (May 22)
The top-secret plot of this Disney project may or may not involve a disillusioned teenaged girl and a secret civilization where the optimistic futurism of the Space Age never "gave up" re: improving humanity through science and technology. If that's the case, is this Disney's Atlas Shrugged -- or its BioShock?

MONSTER TRUCKS (May 29)
I'll be honest: I want to see this strictly because no one actually knows what it's about. All that's been revealed is that it's a live-action/CGI hybrid based around the sport of monster truck driving, aiming to be a "Transformers-style franchise." Okay, let's see what it is.

JURASSIC WORLD (June 12)
Finally getting to see what a fully-realized, functioning Jurassic Park looks like? Rogue geneticists making super-mutant Franken-dinos? Heroic (?) trained good-guy Raptors being deployed to fight (?) the new menace? Which god did I please??

INSIDE OUT (June 19)
Pixar's newest original IP is about the exploits of the personified emotions inside the head of a young girl as she begins the difficult transition from child to teen. Sounds great. Looks better. Sold.

TED 2 (June 26)
The first Ted was a really nice surprise. The premise of the sequel is being kept under wraps for some reason, but Amanda Seyfried joins the cast and is rumored as a love-interest for Ted. If so, that sounds pretty damn funny.
