Right then! Let’s talk Movies!!
No doubt, 2016 is packed with some must watch movies that are sequels and prequels to some movies which are long time favourites. So plan ahead, you may want to go with your family, friends or your kid’s friends!
So here’s the list of some movies in 2016 that we are looking forward to watching! I’ve mentioned the movie rating wherever possible and all release dates mentioned are international ones, so keep an eye out to find out when it will be screened locally!
Norm of the North
Release Date: 15 January
So making it first onto our list is an animation about three lemmings from the Arctic who have found their way to New York in a quest to save their homeland. I haven’t seen any listings locally for this movie, but I do hope it’ll make its way here soon as it’s already released in the US. It looks cute and I’m sure the kids will enjoy it!
Kung Fu Panda 3
Release Date: 29th January
So there’s Po, continuing his “legendary adventures of awesomeness”. Needless to say, this is going to be fun!
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies
Release Date: 5th February
Um ok, this was a not a title I was expecting to see. Yes, its Pride & Prejudice and (sigh!!) yes.. there’s zombies too…. I’m not sure what to make of it. I mean folks, it’s Jane Austen… but I might take a look at the trailer and see of it appeals to me.
OMG… and when was Zoolander 1 released?? So if this follows the first movie (which I’m guessing it would..) it might not be appropriate for kids, but it’s still going to be a fun watch. Maybe for home date night?
In a city of anthropomorphic animals, a fugitive con artist fox and a rookie bunny cop must work together to uncover a conspiracy.
Batman vs Superman: Dawn Of Justice
I’ve already checked out the trailer for this, and it looks AMAAZING… click the link below to check it out. And as it seems, Scarlett Johansson is in the cast.
The Huntsman Winter’s War
Cast includes Emily Blunt & Charlize Theron.
Captain America: Civil War
So, Superheroes against each other seems to be theme this year! The poster for the movie shows Captain America and Iron Man facing each other. Maybe they have some issues that need ironing out before they tackle those dark forces! I’m eagerly waiting for this one. Rating for this movie is not yet available so watch out for that!
Our family is a huge fan of X-men! From the cartoons to the movies, we love them. So depending on the rating, my Hubby and I may catch it or.. if we can with Junior.
Alice Through the Looking Glass
In this upcoming movie Alice returns to the whimsical world of Wonderland and travels back in time to save the Mad Hatter. Cast includes Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway, so yes, it’s going to be interesting
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows
Well you know, they’re the Heroes in the Half Shell. Yes, we love them. Yes we’ll be watching this one.
Finding Nemo fans have been waiting for years for this. I was eagerly waiting for it to release in 2015 (as earlier promised!) Nevertheless, it is now scheduled for summer 2016 and I can’t wait to hear Ellen doing her forgetful Dory voice!!
We are definitely going to catch this one! All us 80’s babies are going to feel so nostalgic!!
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
Calling Harry Potter Fans!! www.imdb.com states the plot as ‘The adventures of writer Newt Scamander in New York’s secret community of witches and wizards seventy years before Harry Potter reads his book in school.’
Star Trek Beyond
Plot is unknown, but if you’re a Star Trek fan, this one is for you!
The Girl on the Train
So I totally didn’t like the book. Nevertheless, it is a best seller and I will watch this – just to see if it’s any better than the book!
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story
So another Star Wars Movie!
Hope you all enjoy the movies in 2016. Remeber to please check the ratings of the movies to see if they are age appropriate for your little ones.
