Website: interstellar-movie.com

As is typical of a Christopher Nolan film, not much is known about the plot of Interstellar, but it is among the most anticipated films of the entire year. What we do know about the film is that it’s set several decades in the future when the Earth is on the brink of running out of food and clean water. In a last-ditch effort to save humanity, a pilot and engineer named Cooper (McConaughey) is chosen to lead a space mission in search of, well, something to save Earth. Using a newly discovered wormhole, Cooper and his team are able to skip over vast distances of nothingness to explore uncharted planets.

Directors: Don Hall and Chris Williams

Big Hero 6 marks the first time The Walt Disney Company has animated a Marvel Entertainment property since acquiring the corporation in 2009. Based on the ’90s comic book team of the same name, Big Hero 6 follows a young robotics genius named Hiro (Potter) as he amasses a rag-tag group of crime-fighters to battle villains in San Fransokyo. The heroes include a lovable, inflatable robot named Baymax (Adsit), a chemistry whiz named Honey Lemon (Genesis Rodriguez), a fire-breathing monster named Fredzilla (Miller), a wheel-wielding speed demon named Gogo Tomago (Jamie Chung) and the martial arts-savvy warrior named Wasabi (Damon Wayans Jr.).
