So our next visit to the cinema will almost certainly be Star Trek Beyond out in cinemas 22nd July.
But in no particular order other than one exception, here are 10 films that we can almost guarantee we will be heading to our local cinema to see:
So the guaranteed must see for us to start the list is Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children due out 30th September
We would watch Tim Burton direct the opening of an envelope, but the fact that film is based on one of our favourite books of recent years means we are pretty much counting down the days to release.
The script is also being written by Jane Goldman, who is best known for her work with Matthew Vaughn, having worked on Stardust; Kick-Ass; X-Men: First Class and Kingsman screenplays.
And a cast that includes Eva Green; Samuel L. Jackson; Asa Butterfield & Judi Dench, our hopes for this film could not be any higher
Now for the rest in release date order.
Finding Dory – If Lilo and Stitch is our favourite Disney film, then Finding Nemo is our favourite Disney Pixar movie. We’re slightly sad that Bruce; Chum and Anchor are not returning, but Hank the Octopus and Destiny the whale shark both look like great new characters.
Dory swims back into UK cinemas on 29th July
Suicide Squad – we are kind of getting bored with comic book heroes at present, but like Deadpool, this film seems to offer something a bit different.
An all-star cast including Will Smith; Jared Leto; Jai Courtney and Margot Robbie, the concept of bad teaming up to fight for good sounds promising. From David Ayer, the director of films such as Fury; Sabotage & End of Watch it sounds in safe hands.
The squad line-up in UK cinemas on August 5th
The Shallows – A shark film heading into cinemas! This really excites us, some critics have described it as the best shark film since Jaws. With praise like that, we have to see!
With praise like that we have to see Blake Lively fight for survival again a shark, could she challenge her husband, Ryan Reynolds Deadpool for a place in the BMAF end of year top 10?
Directed by Jaume Collet-Sera, who has previously brought us Orphan; House of Wax and with Liam Neeson, Unknown; Run All Night and Non-Stop.
That shark chases Blake into UK cinemas on August 12th
Don’t Breathe – We do like a scary film, and this new horror which reteams the director of the recent reboot of the Evil Dead, Fede Alvarez with its star Jane Levy stands out for us.
From what we’ve seen this looks great. All we know is that it is about a Heist of a wealthy blind man that goes wrong.
Don’t hold your breath as Don’t breathe does not reach UK cinemas until 9th September
Bridget Jones’s Baby – We admit at BMAF to being a sucker for a RomCom, Bridget’s first two adventures would be high on our list of favourites, the book does seem to be going in a different direction to the third book, a decision we think could be a good one.
See Renee Zellweger, Colin Firth and Patrick Dempsey play whose the daddy in UK cinemas on September 16th
The Girl on the Train – This will be the Emily Blunt film to see this year and not Winter’s War, as fans of the book ,we agree that this is rightly tipped to be the Gone Girl of 2016.
Get a train to see the Girl in UK cinemas on 7th October
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them – Eddie Redmayne plays Newt Scamander who writes a famous book that will be read by Harry Potter and Co at Hogwarts school of witchcraft. That isn’t the only Potter connection as J.K. Rowling is writing and David Yates is returning to the franchise to direct.
You can find those Fantastic Beasts in UK cinemas on 18th November
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story – A prequel to the events of Star Wars: A New Hope about the rebels mission to steal the plans to the Death Star. This looks incredible. From the director of Godzilla’s last Hollywood outing, Gareth Edwards, expect a box office monster
The force returns to UK cinemas on 16th December
Passengers – A spacecraft carrying 1000s’ of people in sleep chambers to a new world has a malfunction, causing 2 of them to awaken early. Those 2 passengers are Chris Pratt and BMAF favourite, Jennifer Lawrence.
From Morten Tyldum, who brought us The Imitation game and Headhunters, so we expect a great and intelligent science fiction movie.
Passengers can find their seats in UK cinemas on 23rd December
We are sure we have missed many that you may be looking forward to such as Doctor Strange; The Founder; Sausage Party and Inferno, but we are sure we’ll see them too. These are just our must-sees, what are yours? We would love to hear from you here at Barking Mad About Films
