15 Films To Watch Out For In The Year 2016 by AsapGist: 6:17pm On Nov 26, 2015


Most anticipated movies of 2016 – 2015 was an insane year for movies. It was as if the 90s came back for a summer fling. We had a new Terminator movie (questionable quality aside), a fun Jurassic Park movie, and squeezed in between those were Pixar’s phenomenal Inside Out and the hugely underrated thriller, The Gift.

We’re getting a new Star Wars movie that actually looks like the Star Wars movie all Star Wars fans have pined for forever, and we are getting the new Tom Hardy and Leo DiCaprio movie, The Revenant (which we can already confidently tell you will be a game changer of a movie). It is actually hard to fathom just how awesome December’s movies are going to be in 2015. But what about looking ahead? What do we have to look forward to after this year ends? It’s almost daunting to imagine another year with as many A-list movies as there were in 2015. The thing is, this is the movies we’re talking about – they’ re always going to have to consistently up their game if they want to drag people away from the comfort of their “Netflix and chill” zones. This means that yes, indeed, there are some fantastic movies set to be released in 2016. We have some superhero joints that look slamming, a few dramas that look fantastic based on the cast alone, and a a horror movie that looks like it will soil some pants. Here are the 15 movies you should all most be looking forward to in 2016.

15. Dr. Strange



We love comic book movies, even if they are pushing it a little. This is one such example of pushing it. The dude is a magician who travels between dimensions and such. We’re not really sure how well this story will work on film (which was the same fear for Ant-Man and proved to be a valid one), but it’s safe to say that Marvel has a pretty good track record. Benedict Cumberbatch is starring in the lead role, and fanboys love him, so this film will probably make jillions, which we all know is not a real amount but who cares?

14. Kung Fu Panda 3



What are you, dead inside? You have to be to not enjoy this series. While some animated movies drive themselves into the ground with sequels, the second movie in this series was as good as the first, so why should we assume the third won’t be as good as the first two?

And hell yes, Jack Black is back. He is this series, after all. We’re excited for some more animal kung fu action that’s sure to please both adults and kids alike.

13. X-Men: Apocalypse



Though they may be tapping this series out a little too quickly (didn’t the last one JUST come out?), they have remained tight enough films that we are super curious to see if Apocalypse saves or kills the franchise.

Being a fan of the comic, we can state that the main villain, Apocalypse, looks pretty stupid in the stills we’ve seen so far, so that is not looking too good; let’s hope the final product will look much better. We do, however, have faith in Marvel (even if DC’s 2016 movies look way better), Bryan Singer and its stellar cast. Fingers crossed.

12. Warcraft



Here’s the thing: video game movies suck 98% of the time. Here’s the fine print: the man who directed this is 1) the son of David Bowie 2) has made two other phenomenal films (Moon and Source Code) and we have to have faith that the man who has a track record that unreal would not be content putting out a piece of crap movie, especially when it has such a huge core audience of fans already because of the game.

Honestly, the trailer looks kind of “meh”. But again, we’re holding out hope that this will be 2016’s awesome fantasy film. There has to be at least one.

11. Zoolander 2



Yes, this is going to be stupid – we know. But if you look at the list, there isn’t much stupid elsewhere: there are superheroes, action, and superheroes. Oh, and more superheroes. So we have to pop a comedy in here too and just hope it works out.

Granted, the cast is old now and the gag may be spread a little too thin at this point, but screw it. It’s the return of blue steel!

10. Independence Day: Resurgence



You know, the original Independence Day was a fun, popcorn flick, the kind of movie you just shut your brain off to watch. It just keeps your entertained, which is just what movies need to do. Again, they may have put a little TOO much time between the first and second, but here is hoping they can do the original justice and blow up up some more stuff in epic fashion.
