First week of 2016 is already over and I was wondering what to write about today. I decided to write about movies, I haven’t done that in ages. Today I will write about upcoming 2016 movies, I want to watch. I am very excited about the movies who will air this year. This blogpost will be in two parts, part 2 will be online on Tuesday. The movies I am going to write about today are released from January until April and in blogpost number 2 from May until December. I will also write the date when they will be out, but I only looked for the Dutch dates. If you want to check when they are released in your country, check IDMB.com. They have all the information about it.
The Forest (Us date only: January 08)
The story is set in the Aokigahara Forest, a forest at the northwest base of Mount Fuji in Japan where people go to commit suicide. Sara Price, a young American woman, arrives at the forest in search of her twin sister, who mysteriously disappeared. Despite warnings not to “stray from the path,” Sara enters the forest to discover the truth about her sister’s fate, only to be confronted by the angry and tormented souls of the dead who now prey on unsuspecting victims.
The main reason I want to watch this movie is because it is a Horrormovie and I love horrormovies a lot! Most of the horrormovies now a days aren’t as good, but after seeing this trailer I have high hopes for this one!
The Revenant (January 28).
Genre: Adventure, drama, thriller.
A frontiersman named Hugh Glass on a fur trading expedition in the 1820s is on a quest for survival after being brutally mauled by a bear.
A movie with Leonardo DiCaprio has to be good! I saw the trailer from this movie and it looks really promising. I think it is going in the same direction as The Grey, which I really like.
The 5th Wave.
Genre: Adventure, sci-fi, thriller.
Four waves of increasingly deadly alien attacks have left most of Earth decimated. Cassie is on the run, desperately trying to save her younger brother.
I saw someone on twitter who was excited for this movie and I decided to watch the trailer. I must say I am excited to! I think this will be a really good movie.
Deadpool (February 11).
Genre: Action, adventure, sci-fi.
A former Special Forces operative turned mercenary is subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers and adopts the alter ego Deadpool.
When I saw the trailer of this movie, I got really excited. I like the Marvel Movies, but I am not a huge fan of the movies. Eventhought this movie could be the one so far for me from Marvel. I also find the trailer funny.
Pride and Prejudice: Zombies (February 18).
Genre: Action, horror, romance.
Jane Austen’s classic tale of the tangled relationships between lovers from different social classes in 19th century England is faced with a new challenge — an army of undead zombies.
It has the word zombies in the title, which ofcourse immediatly got my attention. I don’t know if I will find this really good, but I definitly will watch it.
London Has Fallen (March 03).
Genre: Action, crime, thriller.
In London for the Prime Minister’s funeral, Mike Banning discovers a plot to assassinate all the attending world leaders.
You probably will think, oh a movie about London. Well it is the main reason I checked out this movie. I am not a big fan of action movies, but some of them I really like. After I saw this trailer I got excited about this movie!
The Divergent Series: Allegiant (March 16).
Genre: Adventure, sci-fi,
Beatrice Prior and Tobias Eaton venture into the world outside of the fence and are taken into protective custody by a mysterious agency known as the Bureau of Genetic Welfare.
I love Divergent, the books, the 2 movies that I already saw. I can say I am so looking forward seeing this movie! Especially, because I know what happens in the books and I am really curious how they filmed it. So far I haven’t been dissapointed and this probably will be my movie of the year.
Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice (March 24).
Genre: Action, adventure, sci-fi.
Fearing the actions of Superman left unchecked, Batman takes on Superman, while the world wrestles with what kind of a hero the world really needs. With Batman and Superman fighting each other, a new threat Doomsday created by Lex Luthor. Its up to Superman and Batman to set aside their difference along with Wonder Woman to stop Lex Luthor and Doomsday from destroying Metropolis.
Batman is my favourite superhero, since I was little kid! I have seen all the Batman movies and ofcourse I have to watch this new Batman movie. I don’t like Superman that much to be honest, but I think this will be a great movie.
Jungle Book (April 20).
Genre: Adventure, Drama, Fantasy.
An orphan boy is raised in the jungle with the help of a pack of wolves, a bear, and a black panther.
As a kid I watched Jungle Book a lot and I still can remember how much I liked it! When I saw that this movie would be released in 2016 the child in me was back. I can’t wait until I see this movie.
The Huntsman: Winter’s War (April 21).
Genre: Action, adventure, drama
As two evil sisters prepare to conquer the land; two renegades – Eric the Huntsmen – who previously aided Snow White in defeating Ravenna, and his forbidden lover, Sara set out to stop them.
I believe this is the sequel to the previous movie: Snow White and The Huntsman. Which I absolutly loved. That is why I want to watch this movie. I hope this will be as good as the first one.
Which of these movies, you would like to watch?
