This year is already shaping up to look like an exciting year for cinema going. It’s a year full of sequels and well-loved characters that we can’t wait to enjoy. Here are 17 releases that we’re already looking forward to:
The 5th Wave (January)
Action adventure starring one of our favourite young actresses, Chloe Grace Moretz plays Cassie, a girl on the run, trying to save her younger brother after a series of alien attacks.
Cherished childhood books for most of the SFS team, we’re looking forward to the spooky screen adaptation where the author’s monsters are set free.
Kung Fu Panda 3 (March)
Po is back for more kung fu adventures. We’re loyal fans, what more can we say?
The Divergent Series: Allegiant (March)
In the next instalment, Beatrice and Tobias venture into the world outside of the fence and are taken into protective custody by a mysterious agency.
Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice (March)
The comic book fans in the team are especially excited for Zack Snyder’s newest superhero film.
The Jungle Book (April)
One of Disney’s live action remakes of its animated classics is one we can’t wait to see.
Captain America: Civil War (April)
The highly anticipated sequel to The Winter Soldier sees the Avengers face off against one another. We’re expecting some incredible superhero battle SFX from this one…
X-Men Apocalypse (May)
Sticking with the genre here. We like superhero battles.
Alice Through The Looking Glass (May)
The sequel to Alice in Wonderland, produced by one of our favourite filmmakers, Tim Burton. Several scenes were shot on our co-director Donna’s street, so she’s hoping it looks really good (at least worth giving up a parking space for.)
Now You See Me 2 (June)
We like a spot of magic and enjoyed the first one a couple of years ago, so we’re looking forward to seeing what new tricks the team have up their sleeves for the summer’s sequel.
The Conjuring 2 (June)
We saw the first film as an SFS team outing and with big fans of horror movies in the team, we’re sure that the second one will be high on the list of trips organised by our team Entertainment Rep, Sheena.
Absolutely Fabulous The Movie (July)
A comedy classic that many of us have loved since we were young, we can’t wait to see Patsy and Eddie back on the big screen!
It’s Ghostbusters and it’s back. Need we say anymore?
Ice Age: Collision Course (July)
Fun, cute and stealthily educational… What’s not to love about the Ice Age films? We have high hopes for the latest sequel due out this summer.
The BFG (July)
Steven Spielberg meets Roald Dahl’s classic Big Friendly Giant with an amazing cast, we’re really looking forward to this adaptation.
Finding Dory (July)
It’s finally here! Well, there – in July! One of films greatest ever sidekicks gets her own show and we can’t wait.
Star Wars: Rogue One (December)
We’re still high on the wave of The Force Awakens, but already have next year’s sequel Rogue One marked in our diaries. We’re sure it will be a big cinema event for all, so hopefully we remember to book our tickets early!
