If there's one thing that we can all agree on here at moviepilot, it is that movies are awesome! For me, seeing movies is the one chance I have to get away from the real world and all of the stress that comes with it.

Moving on, I've been seeing a whole lot of movies for the line up of 2016, which is really getting me excited for the amount of time I'll be spending in the theater!

Let's start in January:

  • Ride Along 2
  • Kung Fu Panda 3

Both very anticipated sequels to successful movies! Now let's move on, shall we?


  • Hail, Caesar!
  • Deadpool
  • Ben-Hur
  • Dirty Grandpa

Personally, I'm very excited to see the comedy movies of Hail, Caeser! and Dirty Grandpa which have a bunch of star cast members, including Scarlett Johansson, Josh Brolin, Zac Efron, Robnert De Niro, and more! Also, who can forget that we finally get to see Ryan Reynolds as the merc with a mouth in his full R-rated glory. So excited!


  • The Divergent Series: Allegiant Part 1
  • Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice

Probably, the biggest movie of the year will be Batman v. Superman, which I predict will break every record opening day and everything! I'm still excited although I have to say, I am a marvel guy when it comes to superheros, which is why I'm excited for the lineup in these next months!


  • The Jungle Book
  • The Huntsman
  • Ratchet and Clank
  • [Captain America: Civil War](tag:994409)
  • Neighbors 2
  • Angry Birds
  • Alice in Wonderland: Through the Looking Glass
  • X-Men: Apocalypse
  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Half Shell
  • The Conjuring 2
  • Now You See Me: The Second Act
  • Uncharted
  • Warcraft
  • Finding Dory
  • Independence Day 2

Are you still with me? Good. Now all we need to do is tackle the craziness that will be the 2016 summer box office list.

Starting off, we dive into the live action version of one of Disney's most popular animated stories of all time, and experience those bear necessities once again! Next we have Chris Hemsworth star in the sequel to his film Snow White and the Huntsman in The Huntsman, along with Ratchet and Clank shortly after.

Now let's move onto Captain America: Civil War. This movie is going to be absolutely exciting. To think that we get to see 4 of the most popular superheros ever fight it out in theaters (Batman vs Supes and Iron Man vs Cap) is so crazy, and they're only a couple months apart as well. Moving along, we see the sequel to the successful comedy Neighbors in Neighbors 2, along with another sequel to the box office smash of Alice in Wonderland.

We return to the mutant universe of Professor X and his team fighting an ancient mutant in X Men: Apocalypse. After seeing Days of Future Past and The Wolverine, I'm very excited to see what Bryan Singer will do in this next movie! Also we see sequels to popular movies including Now You See Me 2, Finding Dory, The Conjuring 2, and Independence Day 2 which, holy shit, I can't wait to see (pardon my french) along with some new films including Warcraft and Uncharted which are based off popular video games.


  • The Purge 3
  • Tarzan
  • Star Trek Beyond
  • Ice Age 5
  • Ghostbusters
  • Suicide Squad

Here we see the sequels to some popular movies with The Purge 3 and Star Trek Beyond, along with a Ghostbusters reboot. Let's not forget about the Suicide Squad as well, where we will see a group of DC's greatest super-villains play anti-hero against Jared Leto's joker, which will somehow all interconnect with Batman v Superman as well.

Still not enough to crave that cinema hunger? Lets take a look at the remaining films that finish off 2016.


  • Gambit
  • Inferno
  • Doctor Strange
  • Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
  • Star Wars: Rouge One
  • Assassin's Creed

Rounding off 2016 we have the mutant solo film, Gambit who will be played by Channing Tatum, and linked with all our other favorite mutants we've come to know and love through all the years. We also see Doctor Strange, Marvel's second movie following Civil War. The movie is rumored to introduce one of the final two infinity stones, and Strange is confirmed to be played by none other than Benedict Cumberbatch, which makes me all the more excited to see the movie!

We also see the Harry Potter spinoff Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them which will of course be a box office hit, along with the first of the Star Wars Anthropology, Rogue One. We finish it off with Michael Fassbender in Assassin's Creed (maybe?) I've heard of this movie being made for years so maybe they will finally get it done by then!


Are you guys excited for 2016?
