Are you a cinephile? Do you have a massive collections of films in alphabetical order and organized by their genres and sub-genres (I may or may not do that…)? Do you like watching the biggest films of the year? Planning on seeing any films in 2015? Then let this handy guide help you out! Well, this first part of this handy visual guide will give you some pointers on what to watch! Or – in my case – interesting enough to leave the house and watch it in cinemas versus waiting for it to premiere on streaming platforms or released in physical or digital formats! This post is just very excited about sharing movie trailers, hence all the exclamation points!

The following list of trailers and teasers below feature quite a few of the genre-heavy films coming out this summer and later this year. This is definitely not a full list of all the genre-heavy efforts coming out this year, but this is a start for fans of the Science Fiction, Horror, Fantasy, and Superhero genres. While The Avengers: Age of Ultron can currently be seen in many countries around the world, the movie won’t be officially released in the United States until next Friday – May 1st. There will be multiple parts to this guide filled with movie teasers and trailers; another genre-heavy post or two will be following shortly.

* All release dates are for the United States unless otherwise noted. ‘Cause you wonderful international readers get all of these films a week or two before us. You lucky, lucky filmgoers…

** I am aware that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice won’t be released ‘til 2016, but with the arrival of the first teaser a week ago, I though it appropriate to add it to the list.
