Three companies that market themselves the best

Best Movies of 2015

  1. Star Wars: The Force Awakens- After nearly 38 years of the release of the first Star Wars movie, the seventh film was released in December of 2015. Since Star Wars has been a large part of American culture since it was created, it has drawn many fans over the nearly 40 years it has been around. Because of this The Force Awakens was highly anticipated. A major incentive to watch this movie was because it had the plot of Star Wars but with modern CGI.
  2. Avengers: Age Of Ultron- This was the third Avengers movie. Many people were very excited to see this because the previous two were largely considered to be great movies. Age Of Ultron did not disappoint. Like the first and second avengers movies, the third one featured many well-known Marvel characters like Iron Man, Captain America, and the Black Widow. They also had those well-known characters played by well-known actors like Robert Downey Jr, Chris Evans, and Scarlett Johanson, which attracted many people.
