D’s Horizon – 2016 Madness

So it is finally 2016 and oh boy are there some movie bangers coming our way! So to help you (and myself) keep track of whats coming up and when, here is a list of the movies Ill def be checking out this year along with their current trailers and release date, clicking on the movie name will take you to the IMDB page where you can of course check out more up to date information and individual country release dates, so, straight to it…

Kung Fu Panda 3 – January 29

Starting off the year we see the third instalment of this popular franchise hit the screen. The trailer looks like a lot of fun and this will be a nice family fun movie to kick start this crazy ass year of movies

Deadpool – February 12

Highly looking forward to this, the promo so far has been spot on and Reynolds is perfect for this role, should be a lot of fun

Batman Vs Superman: Dawn of Justice – March 25

Still have concerns for this movie, I really hope it’s good and does well so it can secure the DC universe in the cinematic form

Jungle Book – April 15

Well it is about time they bought this old but popular movie to the big screen in proper fashion. There has been various incarnations of this story during the past so will be interesting to see how this one fairs. The trailer hits all the right notes and as a fan of the old cartoon I’m looking forward to this and it looks like it should be a good family movie

Civil War – May 6

Avengers 3 in all but the name, this movie is in danger of being too overloaded but given the success seen from the MCU so far, it should be a safe and good movie

X-Men: Apocalypse – May 27

Not sold on apocalypse at all, feels to early to bring him to the forefront, the Xmen franchise has been a mix bag, it has potential but will keep my optimism low

Alice Through the Looking Glass – May 27

The first Alice movie in this series was enjoyable with fun characters and a nice representation and interpretation of the book, so I am interested to see how the second movie goes

TMNT: Out of the Shadows – June 3

Finally we get decent versions of Be-bop and Rocksteady on the big screen, apart from that it should be your typical Bay movie but still a bit of fun

Warcraft – June 10

The trailer looks epic, but it might come off as just another fantasy adventure movie akin to a Tolkien movie, I hope not as the Warcraft world has some good stories and epic battles

Independence Day: Resurgence – June 24

A loooooong time coming, was a bit worried about Smith not reprising his role but the trailer looks epic and the casting should be more than enough to make this a huge movie

The Legend of Tarzan – July 1

Prob my least interesting one on the list, a movie that again has had many iterations, however the trailer has peaked my interest slightly with this one and could end up being pretty good

Ghostbusters – July 15

An all female cast of this classic movie is an interesting take but the casting is good, let’s just hope the story is as well (Trailer to come)

Star Trek Beyond – July 22

Never been a huge Trekie fan but still enjoyed the movies, this looks like it is more akin to the original series which will appeal to some and not others

Suicide Squad – August 5

Was very excited when this was announced and have been impressed with what I’ve seen so far, the big question still remains over Lettos Joker but the rest looks dam good

Gambit – October 7

Still not sold with Tatum as Gambit, don’t mind if I’m proved wrong but still to early to tell if this will be good or not, I have my doubts that this will fill Wolverines shadow in the Xmen universe and after a bit of pre production drama… (Trailer to come)

Doctor Strange – November 4

It’s hard to imagine this movie not being awesome with the stellar cast involved, Cummberbatch as Strange is like Downy as Stark, it just fits (in theory at least). The pictures released look amazing and I am itching to see this one (Trailer to come)

Mystical-Strange-005-EW.0.0

Moana – November 23

As a Maori it’s nice to see a pacific based Disney princess style movie, I’m hoping this ends up being a hit similar to Frozen (Trailer to come)

Rogue One – December 16

This could be an interesting sleeper movie, the premise behind it is really cool so this movie has great potential if done right and could be a very positive lead in to expanding the Star Wars extended universe onto the big screen (Trailer to come)

Assasins Creed – December 21

Still far out but movies based on video games have never had much luck, however with the rich story lines available in the Assassins Creed universe, there should be enough material to make this movie work, at least in theory. (Trailer to come)
