All about war in 2015

If 2014, was the year of Biblicals, 2015 could see the return of war movies in Hollywood. The Clint Eastwood-directed war drama American Sniper has already racked up massive $90.2 million in its opening week to set a record for January. And while the film has been raking in the moolah, it has also managed to force Hollywood celebs to take sides. With the likes of Jane Fonda, Seth Rogan and documentary filmmaker Michael Moore speaking for and against it. Becoming a talking point the film has racked up six Oscar nominations—including Best Picture, and while it continues its dream run, we look at four other war movies that are set to release this year.

Little Boy
Plot: An inspirational story of a seven-year old boy who is willing to do anything to end World War II so he can bring his father home. Exploring the love and the strong bond between a father and his son.
Release date: Feb 27

Killer Crow
Plot: Quentin Tarantino said that this movie is going to be a kid-brother of Inglorious Bastards and Django Unchained. So going by that we can expect a war flick set in World War time.
Release date: December

Code Name: Johnny Walker
Plot: This film tells the story of Iraqi translator "Johnny Walker," who risked his life working with the Navy SEALs to save American lives, and how this endangered his life and the lives of people close to him.
Release date: To be declared (TBD)

The Taliban Shuffle
Plot: Base on a 2011 memoir by international journalist Kim Barker about her experiences reporting in Pakistan and Afghanistan.
Release Date: TBD
