Here is a list of 10 movies in 2016 that I'm excited to watch. Enjoy!
10. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows - June 3rd
Okay, I think my inner child came out and sneaked this on the list. I do not foresee this being a huge hit, but I am a little excited to see my childhood favorite Ninja Turtles go head to head with new Mutants (Beebop and Rocksteady) and the Shredder. I think it will be corny and let's not forget that Megan Fox will have more speaking roles, but outside of that it may actually be a fun movie to watch.
9. ) Finding Dory - June 17th
I don't usually review children/family movies, but you know what, Finding Nemo was a really good movie. So I'm excited to sit down with my wife and kids to watch Finding Dory as I'm sure it won't disappoint.
8.) London Has Fallen - March 4th
All the characters from Olympus has fallen are back. This looks just as good as the first film. I can shut my brain off and just watch tons of action and explosions. Count me in.
7.) X-Men Apocalypse - May 27
Well, his is supposed to be the big one for the X Men film series. Supposedly without Hugh Jackman's Wolverine carrying the film, but with no surprise more Jennifer Lawrence forced yet again into the forefront. The only thing interesting about this film is that it will be the first time we've seen one of the major X Men villains, Apocalypse on the big screen. I'm excited to see this, but my expectations will be held in check at the same time.
6.) Now You See Me 2 - June 10
I thought the previous Now You See Me film was entertaining and fun and just a solid film over all. I'm excited for this because I love heist movies and magic. It's a winning combination. Period.
5.) The Conjuring 2 - June 10
First of all, The Conjuring was probably one of the best horror films within the past decade, or longer. Director James Wan (Insidious, The Conjuring) is coming back again as well to direct. Hopefully it maintains the "creepy factor" and doesn't revert back to the jump scares that are really just cheap. I'm ready for this.
4.) Suicide Squad: Aug. 5th
I'm probably most excited about this for two reasons. 1.) David Ayer will be directing. If you don't know by now, Ayer is probably one of the better up and coming directors in Hollywood. (Fury, End of Watch, SWAT, Training Day). He's a perfect fit for this film. 2.) We finally get to see the next iteration of the Joker on screen, played by Jared Leto. I think this film will surprise more people than originally thought.
3.) Deadpool - Feb 12
Comic fans have been waiting for this film to be made and best of all it's going to be rated R. That means you can enjoy Ryan Reynolds to the character's full extent.
2.) Batman V Superman - March 25
Tell me…do you bleed? WHAT!? Yes. Let's do this. I'm ready. The title speaks for itself. I have some minor worries about this film like will Jesse Eisenberg ruin the film as Lex? Did the trailers show us too much with this potential "doomsday" ? Either way, I'm sure it won't disappoint....because you know...Batman.
1.) Captain America 2: Civil War - May 6th
This is the next chapter to follow up on the really, really good Captain America 2 Winter Soldier film. Hopefully it continues with the spy espionage feel that made Cap 2 a success, and we're also going to see both the Black Panther and Spider Man make an appearance as well. I doubt it follows the comic book story that closely, but it's definitely making the list for movies to see in 2016.
What did you think of the list? Were there any movies that should be removed or added? Tell me in the comments below.
