The 1st of the 2 part sequel of the Divergent series is hitting the big screens in March of 2016. The Divergent series is a science fiction movie based on the Divergent Trilogy by Veronica Roth.
#13 Suicide Squad
I don’t know about you, but the idea of having all the super villains in one film looks really exciting! Not to mention having Will Smith and Jared Leto as part of the cast. A secret government agency uses supervillains to take on a dangerous mission that could lead to their death, hence Suicide Squad. It’s set to be released in August 2016.
#12 The Finest Hours
The film is loosely based on the true story of the Pendleton rescue mission attempt in 1952 where the coast guard makes a daring rescue after two oil tankers were destroyed in a blizzard. The Finest Hours hits theaters in January 2016.
This might be another exciting movies for gamers worldwide. Warcraft is based on the video game series and novels set in the world of Azeroth. What would happen when humans and orcs meet for the first time? The movie is set to come out in June 2016.
Tarzan to be played by Alexander Skarsgard is set to hit theaters in July 2016. The movie will not just be about Tarzan’s origins but about his journey back to Africa, not knowing he was pawn to the captain’s greed.
#9 Doctor Strange
Doctor Strange doesn’t come out till November 2016, but we’re pretty sure all of you are already excited to learn more about it. Doctor Strange will be the 14th installment of the Marvel series and we’re hoping it’ll just be as exciting as most of the Marvel movies.
#8 John Wick
The bad-ass hitman returns in 2016. Keanu Reeves will once again be playing John Wick. When it was first released in 2014, people didn’t really expect much from it. However, most were surprised at how brilliant the film turned out. We’re hoping its sequel would be just as good, especially now that expectations are high.
#7 London has Fallen
The movie is a sequel to 2013’s Olympus has Fallen. Still with Morgan Freeman and Gerard Butler, the cast now heads to London. The prime minister has just died and all the world leaders must attend his funeral, little to their knowledge, someone has a plot to assassinate all the world leaders during the event. London is set to be released in March 2016.
#6 Conjuring 2: The Enfield Poltergeist
The movie is a sequel to The Conjuring released last 2013. In the second movie, the Warrens, still played by Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga, travel to England to investigate some paranormal activity at a house in the London Borough of Enfield. Conjuring hits cinemas in June 2016.
#5 The Huntsman
The Huntsman is a prequel to the 2012 film, Snow White and the Huntsman. After Kristen Stewart’s scandal with director Rupert Sanders, the planned sequel was changed into a prequel which would no longer involve Stewart as Snow White. The film however will still be based on the characters of the German tale, Snow White. The movie is set to be released in April 2016.
#4 Kung Fu Panda 3
Despite how “corny” this movie may sometimes be, I still laugh and smile when I watch it. There’s just something about Kung Fu fighting panda bears! (haha) In the third installment, Po (Jack Black) travels with his biological father to a secret panda sanctuary. He eventually needs to train all the pandas to become a band of Kung Fu pandas!
#3 Zoolander 2
15 years after the first Zoolander movie, Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson are back! Stiller had been wanting to create the sequel for quite some time, so we’re really glad he was finally able to put everything together. The movie takes places in Europe where Derek and Hansel face several challenges in their modelling career. The movie hits theaters in February 2016.
I’m biased for any Ryan Reynolds film, but having him play a bad-ass superhero just makes everything so much better. Ryan Reynolds plays Wade Wilson, a former Special Forces operative turned mercenary after being subject to a rogue experiment. Deadpool is the 8th installment in the X-men film series and hits theaters in February 2016.
#1 Batman VS Superman: Dawn of Justice
As soon as Superman came out, everyone already knew that this was coming next. It’s an all out battle as a god-like superhero and a powerful vigilante go to war. Unfortunately, with 2 of the superheroes at war, a new threat quickly arises which puts human nature in greater dangers than ever.
Wow! 20 awesome movies coming out next year… and this isn’t even half of all the movies that we can expect to see next year. Which film are you eager to watch?
