Awards Season: What Will Be The Best Selling Movie Of 2015

Surprisingly, Spectre, the new James Bond movie, is just fourth in the betting at 9/1.


“After a slow year for blockbusters at least in 2014, it looks as though 2015 could be the best ever year for movies,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.
