Summer 2016: 10 Films to Look Forward to Next Summer

Finding Nemo, Dory, Marlin, Albert Brooks, Ellen Degeneres
Summer 2015 is behind us now and we’re deep into a much richer autumn slate of films than we’ve been treated to in years, but that doesn’t mean movie fans aren’t always looking forward to what blockbusters wait around the bend.  This summer was a mixed bag. If you told me Furious 7 would be ninety times the film Tomorrowland would be at the beginning of the summer, I would have said, “Please stop drinking, Mr. Diesel.” But it was and we had some wonderful surprises like Ex Machina as well as some films like Inside Out which lived up to the hype. It’s too early for trailers for most of these, but looking ahead to next summer (which we’ll say is May – August), here are my top 10 most anticipated films.
1. Captain America: Civil War – 5/6/16
2 The Suicide Squad – 8/1/16
3. Bourne 5  – 7/29/16
4. X-Men: Apocalypse – 5/27/16
5. Finding Dory – 6/17/16
6. Star Trek: Beyond – 7/22/16
7. Warcraft – 6/10/16
8, The BFG – 7/01/16
9. Now You See Me: The Second Act – 6/17/16
10. Independence Day: Resurgence – 6/24/16
Harley Quinn, Margot Robbie, Suicide Squad

  1. I didn’t think ‘Now You See Me’ was good enough or had done wel enough at the box office to deserve a sequel. I’ll skip it. I’m not really a superhero person – I’ve tried to keep with the Marvel fllms only so I can follow online conversation about them. I thought the Avengers Age of Ultron was overlong and bloated, so I am not that enthusiastic about another instalment in the franchise (that said, the idea of Iron Man and Captain America fighting each other is intriguing). The only film here that I’m genuinely curious about is Suicide Squad even though, as I say, i am not a comic book person – it just looks like such a crazy film

    1. Well, I kind of am a super hero person and really loved Now You Can See Me, but this far out the franchise films are the only ones with solid info and Suicide Squad is the only one with a trailer. I’m always looking to see what’s coming though.

  2. BFG and Suicide Squad all the way! Steve, please don’t apologize for, or overcompensate for, the darkness in Dahl’s book. And WB, please know what you’re doing. And Dave, please tell me that BvS did NOT cost over 400 million dollars to make, because I want Suicide Squad to be a part of the beginning of something, and not its final premature death knell.
