Another year, another lot of movies to add to the ‘must-watch’ list.
As GDU pointed out previously, 2016 is all about sequels, superheroes and remakes as Hollywood focuses on renewing the old while building on that comic-buzz.
We’ve compiled our list of 26 big budget movies we can’t wait to watch in 2016 in order of release date (dates may change).
Check them out below and let us know which you’re hanging out to watch the most in the comments section below.
1. Deadpool – 12 February
A burnt up vulgar superhero with a wicked sense of humour? Yes please!
2. Zoolander 2 – 12 February
Derek and Hansel are ba-ack.
3. Viral – 19 February
We’re not usually big on horror, but a post-apocalyptic movie is always appealing.
4. Gods of Egypt – 26 February
Hollywood is finally moving away from the Greek Gods and back to the ancient Egyptian ones – giving us Stargate nostalgia.
5. Batman v Superman: The Dawn of Justice – 25 March
Is anyone not watching this?!
6. My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 – 25 March
“Why do you want to leave me?” The romantic comedy is getting a sequel – it only took around 14 YEARS!
7. Barbershop: The Next Cut – 15 April
Because anything with Ice Cube… and also because the Barbershop franchise is hilarious.
8. The Best Man Wedding – 15 April
The Best Man Holiday was so unexpectadly depressing, it was a terrible follow up to the hilarious The Best Man. I hope they bring the light humour from the first movie into the third.
9. The Huntsman Winter’s War – 22 April
Because Chris Hemsworth – #EnoughSaid.
10. Captain America: Civil War – 6 May
I hope either Iron Man or Captain America dies – just not Captain America.
11. Independence Day: Resurgence – 24 May
Two decades after the original, the aliens are back but Will Smith isn’t…
12. X-Men: Apocalypse – 27 May
Let’s be honest, the younger mutants are so much more interesting than their older counterparts.
13. Warcaft – 10 June
It’s always fun to see great video games translated for cinema.
14. Finding Dory – 17 June
“Just keep swimming, just keep swimming.” Love Ellen!
15. The Legend of Tarzan – 1 July
That bod tho (sic).
16. Alice Through the Looking Glass – 14 July
Johnny steps back into that Mad Hatter makeup and gear.
17. Ghostbusters – 15 July
Aside from supporting girl power, we actually can’t wait to see these ladies fill the those big gooey shoes.
18. Star Trek: Beyond – 22 July
Fast & the Furious meets space travel – this is going to be epic.
19. Knights of the Round Table: King Arthur – 22 July
Who doesn’t love a good King Arthur tale, and also there’s Eric Bana ❤
20. Ice Age: Collision Course – 22 July
The little squirrel’s nutty journey continues.
21. Suicide Squad – 5 August
Let’s be real, this one is for Harley Quinn.
22. Bridget Jones’ Diary: Baby – 16 September
Because she’s us and we’re her and we can’t wait to see how she handles a child.
23. Gambit – 7 October
Chris Channing as a legit Marvel superhero – A-mazing.
24. Underworld: Next Generation – 21 October
Because we’ve waited long enough to find out if Michael really was alive and also whether their daughter will change the world.
25. Doctor Strange – 4 November
Another addition to the MCU!
26. Passengers – 21 December
Jennifer Lawrence, Chris Pratt, Emily Blunt AND Keanu Reeves in a sci-fi movie together? We’re there for that.
