If there's one thing you can definitely say about all movies, it's that they get people talking. Whether it's a movie everyone loves or a terrible movie that's universally hated, there is always a reason to talk about it.
Generally, the talking points are things that actually happened in any given movie, but these days more and more movie fans are talking about theories that they have come up with themselves regarding what they watch.
A famous example - just so you know the kind of thing we're dealing with here - would be the theory that Joel Schumacher's Batman Forever and Batman and Robin are movies taking place within Tim Burton's Batman universe. The basis for that theory stems from things like Gotham City going from a dark, gothic place to looking like a neon camp-fest and therefore not possibly being in the same continuity - the idea being that Batman retired after Batman Returns and the film-makers of that universe took it upon themselves to make a kid-friendly movie franchise about his exploits.
With that in mind, let's take a look through some theories fans have come up with regarding this year's biggest movies. Here are the ten best fan theories about 2015's movies (so far). This article contains spoilers for some of 2015's biggest movies.
10 It's An Early Version Of The Matrix (Jupiter Ascending)
While this particular fan theory was only suggested briefly in a tweet (and therefore not in much detail at all), it's still very interesting. It suggests that the existence seen in the Jupiter Ascending movie is actually an early version of The Matrix - one that the Architect (the Matrix's creator) made as a failed prototype prior to finally achieving success with the Matrix seen in the movies.
The complex nature of the Jupiter Ascending universe makes this theory sort of make sense. And Mila Kunis's Jupiter was "special" in a very similar way to Keanu Reeves' Neo. She could be "The One" of that reality.
9 It's Directly Connected To District 9 & Elysium (Chappie)
This year's Chappie already has an obvious connection to both 2009's District 9 and 2013's Elysium in that they were all directed by Neill Blomkamp - but a fan theory suggests that they all take place in the same universe and are part of the same story.
8 Harry Hart Faked His Death (Kingsman: The Secret Service)
In Kingsman: The Secret Service, Colin Firth's Harry Hart AKA Galahad appeared to perish at the hands of Samuel L. Jackson's Richmond Valentine following a mass brawl (Hart appeared to be the sole survivor prior to Valentine shooting him).
7 Ben Is Responsible For The Whole Thing (San Andreas)
This is something of a cruel fan theory, centered around Hugo Johnstone-Burt's Ben Taylor, which suggests Taylor is the cause of all of the terrible events (earthquakes etc) in San Andreas. It's extremely far-fetched and unlikely, but it's very interesting nonetheless.
6 Bryan's Daughter Was The Bad Guy All Along (Taken 3)
This fan theory suggests that the biggest "victim" in the Taken series is actually the mastermind behind it all. Why? Because she wants to take advantage of the life insurance policies taken out by her parents and step-parent.
5 Caleb Is A Robot (Ex Machina)
An Ex Machina fan theory suggests that the main human character in the movie - Domhnall Gleeson as Caleb Smith - was actually a robot. And it's quite a convincing argument once you actually realise why it's been suggested.
4 The Characters Know They're In A Movie (Furious 7)
This is a fairly simple theory, but one that certainly makes sense - the characters in Furious 7 know they're in a movie. Why? Well, because they know that they couldn't possibly survive some of the stunts they pull off in "real life" situations.
3 Tom Hardy's Mad Max Is A Different Character To Mel Gibson's (Mad Max: Fury Road)
Mad Max: Fury Road starred Tom Hardy as the titular character - the same Max played by Mel Gibson in the previous movies in 1979, 1981 and 1985. But was that actually the case? A fan theory suggests that Hardy's Max is actually a different character altogether - but it suggests he's one that people familiar with the franchise will know all too well.
2 Ultron Was Part Of Thanos's Plans (Avengers: Age Of Ultron)
When Thanos appeared in the mid-credits scene of Avengers: Age of Ultron, he said "fine, I'll do it myself," suggesting that he was sick of his henchmen failing to acquire or hold on to the Infinity Stones on his behalf. However, people found this weird, as there were none of his henchmen in that movie. Or were there?
1 Chris Pratt's Owen Grady Is Jurassic Park's "Six Foot Turkey" Kid (Jurassic World)
A very cool fan theory relating to Jurassic World states that Chris Pratt's character Owen Grady is actually a grown-up version of the mouthy little kid at the start of Jurassic Park. The kid - listed as "volunteer boy" in the credits - questions the ferociousness of Velociraptors at an archaeological dig - calling them "six foot turkeys" - prompting Alan Grant to explain how they would eat him alive if he encountered and order him to "show a little respect."
Owen Grady is a Velociraptor trainer and handler in Jurassic World and explains that his relationship with them is based on "respect." Could it be that the volunteer boy learned his lesson and took an interest in Velociraptors, resulting in him getting a job at Jurassic World? It's certainly an interesting idea - though the actor who played the kid (Whit Hertford) attempted to shoot it down on Twitter.
