10 BIG Movies To Look Forward To For The Rest Of 2016

Honorable Mentions:

Sully (September 9)
Jack Reacher: Never Go Back (October 21)

10. Inferno (October 28)

I’m just going to throw this out there.  I don’t read a lot of novels.  I stick to non-fiction for the most part.  However, I have read all of Dan Brown’s ‘Robert Langdon’ books.  The movies don’t quite measure up but that’s a lot to ask of a 2 hour film adaptation.  I still enjoyed The Da Vinci Code and Angels & Demons a great deal.  However, Inferno was my least favorite book in the series but that doesn’t mean the film won’t succeed.

9. Blair Witch (September 16)

Well played Adam Wingard…  Well played.  For those of you who missed San Diego Comic Con, the filmmaker dropped a huge bomb that his upcoming film (formerly called The Woods) was actually a surprise Blair Witch sequel!

8. Assassin’s Creed (December 21)

I wanted 2016 to launch a golden age of video game adaptations.  Warcraft was up first and seriously disappointed fans, myself included.  Assassin’s Creed still has a shot to prove video game movies can succeed on the silver screen.

7. The Birth of a Nation (October 7)

This movie stole the headlines at the Sundance Film Festival this year.  The film’s positive reception eventually led to a record breaking deal with Fox Searchlight.

6. The Magnificent Seven (September 23)

I love a good Western and I have high hopes for this remake.  Really high.  Almost insurmountably high.

5. The Accountant (October 14)

Don’t mention Batman…  I mentioned Batman.  Batman, Batman, Batman…

Oh yeah, Ben Affleck will still appear in movies without the DC logo in front.  I consider Good Will Hunting and A Beatiful Mind top 10 on my all time favorites list.  This movie could fit in nicely along side them.  If it delivers of course.  If it doesn’t? Batman!!!

4. Arrival

I absolutely adore movies about alien contact.  Independence Day, Contact etc…  This has the makings of a science fiction masterpiece with a phenomenal cast and pure curiosity fueling the hype.

3. Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them (November 18)

This movie ranks high on my list purely out of curiosity.  What does a Harry Potter movie look like without Harry Potter?

2. Doctor Strange (November 4)

People often claim that we will eventually experience superhero fatigue thanks to the sheer quantity of upcoming projects.  I don’t think that will happen any time soon.  The reason?  The minds behind the biggest superhero films haven’t reached the limit of experimentation.  Case in point: Doctor Strange.  The film’s gorgeous visuals alone set it apart from anything Marvel has produced, let alone the rest of the superhero film world.

1. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (December 16)

Why is this movie #1?  Because Star Wars.  That’s why.
