After a spectacular 2013 for film, it’s time to look forward to the year ahead at cinemas, and 2014 looks absolutely fantastic, from some of the most interesting blockbusters in years, safe but exciting sequels and excellent indie fare. Some of my favourite directors have projects in the works (new Christopher Nolan! new Paul Thomas Anderson!) as well as some relatively untested film-makers attempting to show just what they can do. It’s a very exciting time. Just a note, some of these films may eventually miss out on a 2014 release, but are currently slated to arrive in the next 12 months in the UK. Also, I have already seen the majority of the films being released in January/February this year thanks to screeners, so the fact that 12 Years a Slave, Wolf of Wall Street etc. aren’t here isn’t a testament to me not being excited for them.
