Top 10 Most Anticipated Films of 2014

Another year has passed and like most geeks I am looking forward to what this new year promises to deliver in the world of cinema! There are several films I am looking forward to seeing, but this list consists of my 10 Most Anticipated Films of 2014!
10. The Giver

Considering the source material, it is entirely conceivable that Hollywood will drop the ball on this adaptation of Lois Lowry's children's novel. The story is relatively dark and explores complicated ideas for a children's story that could be diluted by the hands of executives aiming for mass appeal. Despite the fact that what should be a prominent film seems to be filming under the radar, I am anxious to see the novel I thoroughly enjoyed as a child  finally being brought to life on the big screen.
