Now that Deadpool has finally come out, audiences worldwide are waiting for Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice to be the next big movie. This movie has been anticipated for years, finally merging together some of the most iconic characters on screen for the very first time. Can you feel the anticipation?!
However, we still have over a month before we get to see Batman v Superman. Though that does seem rather close, it leaves plenty of time for other fantastic films to come out between now and then. Though these films may not be as highly anticipated as Batman v Superman, there are some that are definitely worth seeing.
Here are 6 movies coming out between now and March 25 that you need to go see.
1. 'Gods of Egypt' (February 26)
This film has received a lot of hate for looking like it has a ridiculous concept. However, based on the trailer, the film looks very entertaining. It brings us straight into the world of ancient Egypt, where man and the legendary gods live in unison — or almost in unison.
If nothing else, the visual effects in this film look spectacular. Some of the effects and battle scenes look very fun to watch and are sure to keep us at the edge of our seats. Plus, Gerard Butler appears to have given everything he has in this role, bringing out all of his acting talents to truly present the Gods of Egypt to us.
2. 'Eddie the Eagle' (February 26)
Next on our list is Eddie the Eagle, which takes a less explosive approach than Gods of Egypt. Taron Egerton (best known for starring in Kingsman: The Secret Service) and Hugh Jackman star in this inspirational, true, underdog story about Eddie Edwards, the legendary ski jumper of the 1988 Winter Olympics.
Egerton really gives it all to this role, bringing Edwards to life on screen. The film is a very heart warming story that may even inspire you to pursue your own dreams. It is definitely worth buying a ticket, and you may even want to go see it again based on how good of a film it is.
3. 'Zootopia' (March 4)
Let's face it, we all love a good Disney film, so there's no question about going to see Zootopia. On March 4, Disney takes us into the fictional city Zootopia where animals run the streets. The animation is, as always, done perfectly, and the movie manages to bring out the perfect mix of comedy and heart.
Like most Disney films, Zootopia brings with it a phenomenal voice cast, including Ginnifer Goodwin, Jason Bateman, Idris Elba, Bonnie Hunt, J.K. Simmons, Shakira, and Kristen Bell. The story follows a rookie cop named Judy who is not taken seriously as a cop, simply because she is a bunny, who must prove herself by solving a great crime. The movie looks very entertaining and humorous, and I look forward to seeing it.
4. '10 Cloverfield Lane' (March 11)
J.J. Abrams pulled a fast one on us with the shocking revelation that he had secretly produced a sequel to Cloverfield while we were all distracted by Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The sequel takes us into the lives of three people trapped inside what we assume to be a bomb shelter after the events of the first film.
This post-apocalyptic shelter puts events in a new light that we have not seen in too many horror or action films before. Plus, it appears the shaky, hand-held camera perspective of the first film will not be used in 10 Cloverfield Lane, which will make it much easier on the eyes. I, for one, cannot wait to see what J.J. Abrams has in store for us this time.
5. 'The Brothers Grimsby' (March 11)
Who doesn't love a good action movie? Furthermore, who doesn't love a good comedy? The Brothers Grimsby brings us both of those things and more! The combination between Mark Strong's action skills and Sacha Baron Cohen's comedy talents brings us the perfect mix that we can't help but enjoy.
This movie brings out everything you want in a Sacha Baron Cohen film — basically those kinds of jokes that you laugh at, but know you're going to hell for laughing at. The trailer really demonstrates the extent of both the comedy and the action and is worth seeing if you are a fan of either genre.
6. 'The Divergent Series: Allegiant' (March 18)
On March 18, we finally get the third chapter of the Divergent series. Shailene Woodley delivers once again, bringing her star power back into her role as Tris. Allegiant takes the characters outside the world they knew, outside the walls, into a new world they could only have imagined before.
The cast of the series really delivers as the adventure continues in this anticipated sequel. Action, adventure and thrills are sure to await us when we finally get to see Allegiant in theaters. This really may be the best Divergent movie yet.
2016 is full of phenomenal films — why wait to only watch the 'big' ones? There are plenty of on-screen adventures that are just waiting for us to go witness them in theaters.
Expand your horizons and go check out these awesome movies. Batman v. Superman looks exciting, but there's a lot more in store before we get there.
