2016 is set to be a huge year for movies and so today I am counting down my personal picks for the ten movies I really think are going to be great in 2016. These aren’t the movies that people are excited to see, these are the movies I think are actually going to be really good.
10: Batman VS Superman: Dawn of Justice
To be honest I don’t have very high hopes for this movie, I want to see it to (hopefully) be proved wrong. I think the movie risks being overloaded with new characters and it might drag down the story. Yet it could be decent, with the introduction of new characters to the new expanded DC Universe it could serve as a perfect jumping on point for new fans.
9: Doctor Strange
Doctor Strange looks like the movie that will breathe new life into the dusty MCU, with a lot of weird originality this movie feels perfect to shake up what we know about the universe. With a stellar cast of Bennedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Mads Mikkelsen this looks like to be a perfect movie for people with a thing for guys with weird names.
8: Disney’s Moana
Very little is known about this movie but it seems like Disney is going to be bringing some much needed diversity to it’s movies and probably another strong female character following the trend set in Tangled and later Frozen.
7: Assassins Creed
Michael Fassbender would not have been my first bet for the main character in an Assassins Creed movie, however he has stated multiple times that he has done extensive research for the movie to ensure that it remains both historically accurate and also true to the games.
6: Suicide Squad
Bringing a bit of darkness to the world of super heroes is this awesome looking movie. We will also be seeing a new Joker (Jared Leto) and both Harley Quinn and Deadshot will be appearing. The movie looks like its going to be really creepy and dark and I will be totally watching it.
5: The 5th Wave
It is no secret that I am very excited for this movie, I read the book when it first released and have been looking forward to the movie for far too long. Starring the very talented Chloe Grace-Moretz as Cassie Sullivan this looks like it is going to be one hell of a disaster movie and potentially spawn a franchise as big as The Hunger Games.
4: Captain America: Civil War
This is set to be one of the most earth shattering movies in the MCU thus far, with Captain America and Iron Man fighting over the rights of super humans it could see some hefty casualties for both sides. Plus it sees the introduction of characters like Black Panther and another potentially giant character.
I am SO HYPED for this movie, it feels like it could be one of the best Disney movies in a long while with it’s quirky plot and stunning cast. The animation looks great and it just looks like it’s going to be a great deal of weird fun.
2: X-Men Apocalypse
This looks set to be an amazingly destructive conclusion to the stunning prequel trilogy of X-Men movies and it will be introducing the origins of some classic mutant heroes like Storm, Nightcrawler, Cyclops, Jean Grey and Psylocke. This feels like a perfect lead into the amazing future for the X-Men Universe.
Deadpoool looks set to be a wonderfully obscene and hilarious movie, with Ryan Reynolds bringing the classic character to life once more it seems like this time it could actually work rather than being the horrible mess of the character’s first appearance in X-Men Origins Wolverine.
Thanks for reading and we hope to see you all in the new year! Keep it G33k!
