50 titles to look forward to in 2016

bateman 5
Believe it or not, 2015 has come to a close. We’re not just hours away from a whole new year, and with it…a whole crop of new movies to anticipate. There’s all sorts of things to come, including Oscar fare, blockbusters, independent successes, and everything in between. Below you’ll see a big list of 50 (yes 50) films that I think are worth looking out for in 2016. That’s a lot of movies, I realize, but it’s not even a quarter of the release schedules for the next 365 days. As such, I think it’s perfectly apt to list that many flicks. I’ll have a bit to say about the different sorts of titles hitting screens, then you’ll see the big list, though I won’t keep you hanging too long, that’s for sure. I know you’re mostly in it to see the list, so I’ll certainly oblige you all there…

In terms of potential awards hopefuls, I think The BFG, Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk, Demolition, Everybody Wants Some, Finding Dory, The Founder, The Free State of Jones, Genius, The Girl on the Train, The Great Wall, The Light Between Oceans, Hail, Cesar!, I Saw the Light, Knight of Cups, La La Land, Manchester by the Sea, The Nice Guys, Other People, Passengers, Race, Silence, Snowden, Story of Your Life, and Sully are the main ones I can initially see as players. That’s hardly it, but off the top of my head, these seem like interesting early bets. Perhaps next year’s Best Picture winner is even in that group? Stay tuned to find out…

As for blockbusters, there’s no shortage of them either, superhero or otherwise. Look for Assassin’s Creed, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Captain America: Civil War, Deadpool, Doctor Strange, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Ghostbusters, Independence Day: Resurgence, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Star Trek Beyond, Suicide Squad, and X-Men: Apocalypse, among others. Perhaps one or two of them will be crossover hits that the Academy can potentially embrace, but even not, it looks like a nice variety of things that will offer up something for almost everyone. That’s never particularly a bad thing either, is it?

Also worth looking out for are some more varied things like The Accountant, Green Room, Midnight Special, The Witch, and Yoga Hosers, which exist sort of on their own. They help make up the total of 50 flicks that I’m citing here in this piece. There will surely be over 400 movie releases in total next year, so I have no doubt that 2016 will be another fine year for film, especially since we only know a fraction of the titles right now. I’m excited, and you should be too, ladies and gentlemen. Next year could be as good as this one was, or even better…

Here now are 50 films that you should look forward to throughout 2016:

The Accountant
Assassin’s Creed
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk
Captain America: Civil War
Doctor Strange
Everybody Wants Some
