Look Forward to 2014 With This Fun Movie Preview Supercut

Over the last few weeks, we've been inundated with the annual year-end offerings of supercuts and retrospectives of the year in 2013 movies. For a change, YouTube user Hayden Vartiainen decided to look forward rather than to the past, with "Film Showcase 2014," a supercut of upcoming movies we can expect to see in the new year.

As Kevin Jagernauth notes at Indiewire, the video is composed of footage from already-released trailers, so you won't find anything outside of big-budget films and potential blockbusters like Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and Interstellar. But it's a nice move away from the norm at this time of year, and builds to a strong finish, set fittingly to John Murphy's "Surface of the Sun."
