SONY PICTURES UNVEILS EXCITING 2015 LINE-UP
~ Highlights include CHAPPIE, THE WALK, PIXELS & Bond film SPECTRE ~

Mumbai, 17 December 2014… Sony Pictures revealed a formidable line-up for 2015 including such exciting and varied titles as CHAPPIE, PIXELS, THE WALK and 24th Bond film SPECTRE.

The year starts with the comedy SHARAFAT GAYE TEL LENE distributed by Sony Pictures hitting theatres on January 16, followed by the outrageous Hollywood comedy THE WEDDING RINGER about a best man on hire, starring top comic Kevin Hart, Josh Gad and Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting. Neill Blomkamp’s CHAPPIE with Sharlto Copley, Dev Patel and Hugh Jackman is next, about a robot with the ability to think and feel for himself. The classic Broadway musical is reimagined in ANNIE with Jamie Foxx, Quvenzhané Wallis and Cameron Diaz.

Summer brings bright weather outside but darkness lurks inside courtesy the third chapter of the extremely successful horror    franchise INSIDIOUS, which takes the story back to the beginning. Kids and adults (especially those who grew up with Pac-Man, Donkey Kong   and  the like) will love PIXELS, a unique action comedy directed by   Chris Columbus about aliens using classic video game characters to   take over  the world. The comedy GRIMSBY co-written by Sacha Baron Cohen follows, and then comes the Jonathan Demme-directed RICKI AND   THE FLASH, a  story about an ageing rocker played by Meryl Streep.

The last quarter of the year sees Robert Zemeckis’ THE WALK starring    Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Ben Kingsley, based on the true story of    high-wire artist Philippe Petit’s attempt to cross the Twin Towers of    the World Trade Center in 1974. The year ends with a bang via the    highly anticipated James Bond film SPECTRE releasing in early    November, followed by the Genndy Tartakovsky-directed follow-up to the    record-smashing HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA.

Kercy Daruwala, Managing Director of Sony Pictures India said, “In    2014 we released the biggest film of the year with THE AMAZING    SPIDER-MAN 2 and consolidated our leadership position with five out of    the top ten Hollywood films in India of all time. Our 2015 line-up    promises an even more exciting year ahead, with the distribution of    some local films, the scope of a sure-shot blockbuster like SPECTRE    plus a very rich variety of other promising titles.”

Divya Pathak, Director – Marketing of Sony Pictures India said, “2014    was a very exciting and challenging year for us in which we took  movie   marketing where it’s never gone before, to all corners of the   country,  with franchises like Spider-Man. We are enthusiastic about   our diverse  and unique 2015 line-up and look forward to reaching new   heights in  marketing innovation.”

Appu Singh, Director – Sales, Sony Pictures India said, “Our fantastic    slate in 2015 holds equal promise for both audiences and  exhibitors.   With the Bond film slated for a release in the next  Diwali season,  we  intend to literally light up the box office.”
