Here are some movies that I am looking forward to in 2016 (likely in order of excitement):
X-Men: Apocalypse – May 27
The X-Men come back to wrap up another awesome trilogy…and of course we shall see some more of Jennifer Lawrence.
Suicide Squad – August 5
I love most of these superhero movies (although don’t care about Batman v. Superman) and this one has potential with a huge cast.
Will Smith. Jared Leto. Margot Robbie. Cara Delevingne.
Deadshot. Joker. Harley Quinn. Echantress.
Among many others. Awesome.
Captain America: Civil War – May 6
The last Avengers movie was incredible, and the trailers for this one are insane. Captain America vs. Ironman with everyone taking sides…Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson!!), Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen!!), Agent 13 (Emily VanCamp!!) and possibly even a Marisa Tomei appearance!!! Can you tell I’m excited?
The Jungle Book – April 15
One of my favorite movies as a kid is being redone, with Bill F. Murray as Baloo!!! Add in Scarlett Johansson and Christopher Walken, and we are all gonna sing The Bare Necessities.
Finding Dory – June 17
Just keep swimming, over and over on repeat, would be reason enough to watch this film.
Deadpool – Feb 12
What’s that? Another Superhero movie, this time staring Ryan Reynolds? Okay, I can go for that.
The BFG – July 1
Another great book (Roald Dahl) that I read growing up (and promptly forgot about until this moment), I’m excited that Spielberg is turning it into a real life movie! Starring Bill Hader, Rebecca Hall and Mark Rylance.
TMNT: Out of the Shadows – June 3
I did not grow up watching the episodes, but I loved the first movie in this series, and the second one should be just as fun!
Assassin’s Creed – Dec 21
One of the great video game franchises these days gets turned into a movie…how bad can it be? 🙂
Independence Day: Resurgence – June 24
We’ll all watch it to see if it’s any good, especially after the first in the series…but no Will Smith is likely to equal No Good.
Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny – Feb 26
Theaters & Netflix Simultaneously
This is one of the movies that Netflix has being released on their system at the same time as theaters, as we try to fully evolve into the digital age. I’ll watch it…probably.
