The Marvelverse expands yet further. Still, when your director is quick-witted Joss Whedon, it's hard to complain. The entire central cast—including Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson and Mark Ruffalo—all return.

The Avengers: Age of Ultron opens May 1, 2015.

If you're seeing this one on opening day, you either hate Mad Max movies or are an extremely supportive boyfriend. Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson are back for more a cappella shenanigans.

Don't even pretend you're not ready for some disaster porn come the warm-weather months. This one features Dwayne Johnson, True Detective's Alexandra Daddario and the titular California fault line.
