If all goes according to plan, 2015 will be one ridiculous year for movies.  Currently, The Avengers 2, Justice League, Ant-Man, Star Wars: Episode VII, and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 are all tentatively slated for 2015 release dates.  Now Fox is throwing one more highly anticipated title into the pile, as their Fantastic Four reboot now has a March 6, 2015 release date.  Titled The Fantastic Four, the film has Chronicle director Josh Trank at the helm and Jeremy Slater penning the screenplay.  Plot details are practically non-existent at the moment, but with two promising gents creatively spearheading the project, there’s certainly hope for a fun take on the comic book property that will help us all put Tim Story‘s overly cheesy films out of our memory for good.

Additionally, Fox has announced that a number of their upcoming films will be post-converted to 3D.  Hit the jump for more.

x-men-days-of-future-pastThe folks over at Exhibitor Relations Tweeted that Fox’s The Wolverine, X-Men: Days of Future Past, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, and Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters will all be released in 3D.  There’s no mention of Fantastic Four being 3D, but I imagine it will be presented in three-dimensions as well when all is said and done.  Seeing as how production on The Wolverine and Percy Jackson has already wrapped, we know that those two will be post-converted.  There’s no word on whether the other two will be shot in 3D or post-converted, but Ian McKellen recently speculated that director Bryan Singer might shoot the X-Men sequel in 3D and at 48 frames-per-second.

There has been no firm word from anyone else that Singer might go that route, and McKellen only just entered negotiations to join the project so he’s not exactly an expert on all things Days of Future Past.  That said, Singer recently Tweeted quite a bit on a pre-production trip to New Zealand where he hung out with The Hobbit director/48 fps cheerleader Peter Jackson, so it’s certainly possible that he might be going the High Frame Rate route.  It’s also possible that he was just meeting with the people at Jackson’s visual effects studio Weta for the film, so let’s hold off on the instant backlash until we have more information.

Here’s a rundown of the release dates for Fox’s upcoming films:
