2015 is coming to an end, and with the release of Star Wars: The Phantom Menace in December, there won’t be any great movies to look forward to this year. Not to worry though, as 2016 is full of movies that will rule the box office.
Movies in 2016 are going to be huge and there’s going to be a lot of them. Some of the best movies coming in 2016 include, Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice, Captain America: Civil War, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Finding Dory, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, X-Men: Apocalypse, Independence Day: Resurgence, WarCraft and Suicide Squad.
There are many more 2016 movie releases that will do well at the box office, but there are only a few that we’re all eagerly waiting to watch.
Here’s a list of the top 10 most anticipated movies in 2016 that we believe will become box office hits and would be worth watching more than once.
This movie tells the story of Wade Wilson, played by Ryan Reynolds, who is a mercenary with accelerated healing powers and a dark sense of humour. He’s now on the lookout for the man who almost destroyed his life by subjecting him to rogue experiments. Deadpool belongs to the Marvel Universe and is their most unconventional anti-hero.[youtube id=”FyKWUTwSYAs” align=”center” maxwidth=”849″]
Deadpool will release on February 12, 2016 and it looks like it’s going to be a hilarious movie. Oh yes, there’s going to be plenty of action and killing as well.
Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice
Probably the most awaited movie of all time and a big one for all Batman and Superman fans. We know that Batman is going to defeat Superman, but we don’t know how he’s going to do so in Dawn of Justice.[youtube id=”0WWzgGyAH6Y” align=”center” maxwidth=”849″] Of course, Christian Bale won’t be playing Batman, instead, a rather chubby Ben Affleck will save Gotham from the Superman.
Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice is scheduled to hit theatres on March 23, 2016.
The Jungle Book
Based on the children’s books that goes by the same name, this movie follows the adventures of Mowgli through the Jungle as he tries to discover himself. He comes across several creatures in the Jungle, played by various actors, who make his journey difficult.[youtube id=”HcgJRQWxKnw” align=”center” maxwidth=”849″]
The Jungle Book will be released worldwide on April 15, 2016.
Captain America: Civil War
Civil War takes place after the events of Avengers: Age of Ultron, when the government decides that the Avengers should work under them and not on their own. Steve Rogers, aka Captain America, is against this idea whereas Tony Stark, aka Iron Man, is with the government. This leads to a conflict between Captain America and Iron Man.
Captain America: Civil War will hit theatres May 6, 2016. Who’s side are you on?
A sequel to X Men: Days of Future Past, the latest instalment in the X Men series will see them fight the villain Apocalypse. The movie might see the return of a few older characters and a lot of new ones.
We don’t really know anymore than that, but it is going to be one amazing film, that’s for sure.
X-Men: Apocalypse is said to hit theatres on May 27, 2016.
The Conjuring 2: The Enfield Poltergeist
After the success of The Conjuring, Ed Warren and Lorraine Warren are back to kick some ghost butts. Conjuring 2 is based on the Enfield Poltergeist, which is apparently a true event that took place in London in 1977.
Are you ready for a summer scare? Conjuring 2: The Enfield Poltergeist is set to hit the screens on June 10, 2016. We reckon that this is going to be a good horror movie.
The movie takes place a year after the events of Finding Nemo and follows the journey of Dory to find her parents. Dory is helped by Nemo and Marlin in this epic adventure along the coast of California. You will also see some new characters introduced in the film.[youtube id=”iG0P6bjyUNI” align=”center” maxwidth=”849″]
Finding Dory releases on June 17, 2016.
The most badass super-villains assigned to protecting people, that’s Suicide Squad for you. A government agency called A.R.G.U.S recruits villains to perform dangerous tasks that in turn reduces their prison sentence. The task force includes Joker, Deadshot, Harley Quinn, Boomerang, Killer Croc and several other villains from the DC Comics universe.[youtube id=”WI3hecGO_04″ align=”center” maxwidth=”849″] The Suicide Squad is scheduled for an August 5th 2016 release.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
Harry Potter fans, it’s time for another movie. A prequel to the Harry Potter films, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them follows the adventures of Newt Scamander in an ancient New York. It is based on the Hogwarts textbook in Harry Potter by the same name.
Newt Scamander is a magiczoologist who studies magical creatures.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them will be released worldwide on November 18, 2016.
Star Wars: Rogue One
Set between the events of Star Wars Episode III and IV, Rogue One will most likely be about bounty hunters who set out to steal the Death Star plans. We’re not exactly sure of the plot.
Walt Disney Pictures and Lucasfilm have promised a Star Wars film every winter after the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. These movies will be spin-offs to the main films.
Star Wars: Rogue One is set to release on December 16, 2016.
