Films to look forward to in 2016: Part 2

There's quite a number of them to look forward to next year...

With 2015 drawing to a close, it’s time to take a look at the films we can look forward to in 2016.

With another Coen brothers film on the way and the return of Zoolander, it looks like the 2016 slate will appeal to a wide range of tastes.

Here are our picks for Part Two.

Suicide Squad

It's always a good idea to recruit super villains for government operations, right? Right? Well, probably not according to DC comics.

With Batman v Superman on the way, the Suicide Squad will be the next project, along with Wonder Woman for the DC universe.

Expect every woman to dress up as Margot Robbie next Halloween. Release is set for next summer.

The Revenant

It was not true that Leonardo DiCaprio was raped by a bear, a statement the studio were forced to release... The Revenant's subject matter isn't any less bleaker.

Hugh Glass (DiCaprio) sets out to get his vengeance on the people who left him for dead after a bear mauling.

The film will get a release here in January.

Hateful Eight

Welcome back Tarantino! The director has taken on many film genres over the last few years but he hasn't turned his attention to Westerns... until now.

A group of bounty hunters look for cover during a blizzard but end up in a plot of betrayal.

It looks like the Hateful Eight will get a release in the first week in January.


You may have seen quite a few images of Liam Neeson walking around looking like he was in need of quite a few sandwiches and this is the reason why.

Martin Scorsese's new film revolves around two priests who face persecution when they travel to Japan to locate their mentor.

There is no release date for Silence just yet and no trailer unfortunately.


Is Jennifer Lawrence the only big actress of her age group at the moment? It's quite possible. And here she is again in a David O.Russell film with, surprise, surprise, Bradley Cooper. Somehow, this will work.

The film is the biographical story of Joy Mangano, a single mother with three children who became the head of a business empire.

It's due for release here on January 1st.

Trainspotting 2

It's been a long time coming, in fact it was first rumoured that a sequel was in the running way back in 2010, but Danny Boyle has decided that 2015 will be the year for Trainspotting 2.

However, it's quite possible this won't get a release until 2017 but Boyle had promised that the script was entirely worth it and he wasn't just doing this project for the sake of it.

Florence Foster Jenkins

Well, it wouldn't exactly be Oscar season without the inclusion of a Meryl Streep film and this is the one.

Florence Foster Jenkins follows the story of a rich New York heiress who wanted to make it as an opera singer despite the fact that she had a terrible singing voice.

It's looking at a release date for August of next year.


Lenny Abrahamson may in fact have hit the Oscar jackpot with his adaption of Emma Donoghue's Room.

The story revolves around five-year-old Jack who is being held captive with his mother in a small room. Brie Larson and Jacob Tremblay star.

The film has already made quite a commotion on the festival circuit and is due for release here in January.

The Great Wall

Starring Matt Damon, Pedro Pascal and Willem Dafoe, the film revolves around the mysteries of the Great Wall of China.

It's due for release here in towards the end of 2016, although this could possibly run into 2017.

X-Men: Apocalypse

Well, we know the cast of Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Nicholas Hoult and Jennifer Lawrence will make a return but outside of that we know very little about the new X-Men.

However, we do know a new super villain will make an appearance, Apocalypse played by Oscar Isaac.

It's likely X-Men will get a release here in May.
