As May comes to a close and June is just around the corner, some of the most highly anticipated movies are also about to change movie history. Summer is the time to go to the beach and enjoy the sun while swimming on the cool oceans. But that doesn’t mean you have to spend every single day of the summer at the beach. The movie theaters will soon be jam-packed because of the most anticipated releases of this year. Although some may have already been released, they still count as part of the summer movie bonanza because of the incredible success it has garnered. Here are the top 10 most anticipated movies of summer 2016.
10. The Huntsman
With Snow White and the huntsman being a surprisingly big success, the sequel is on it’s way to the big screens and without the leading lady. It’s an interesting angle and it seems like it has piqued the interest of many because of the way it will be told. But surely it will be just as lengthy as the first one. Expect to be sitting for along time without even knowing so much time has passed.
With everyone and their mother having watched Tarzan over a thousand times, okay maybe that’s an exaggeration, surely an live-action adaptation is going to peak everyone’s curiosity. With the success of The Jungle Book, it’s only a matter of time before Tarzan gets it’s fair share of hype which is why this list is in no particular order and is still subject to change.
8. Star Trek Beyond
With the legacy that Star Trek has left behind, the new ones have a lot of pressure. Although the previous one was met with mixed reviews, a lot of people are still expecting this one to be a lot better and up to par with the rest of the films under the same franchise. With the film being released in early July, we can anticipate an action-packed summer indeed.
7. Now You See Me: The Second Act
With the first movie being such a big success, a sequel was bound to happen. And we are glad that there will be a sequel for sure. The magic tricks, the illusions, the mysteries and of course the thrill of thinking about what is up next will definitely make a big splash in the screens. Although one of the core members will not be returning, the show must go on and there is a replacement already. Hopefully she lives up to the previous actress’ amazing acting. If only time would go by faster with just a snap of a finger.
6. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2
Who can say no to another Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles? The bad-ass quadruplet Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael and Michaelangelo will once again dominate your screens and show the world that they are the toughest squad you will ever meet. And don’t forget to mention the most pizza loving turtles you will see from the get go. With the first one back in 2014 as a success, this next one is anticipated to do the same, perhaps become even more successful than the previous one.
5. Finding Dory
With it’s predecessor being one of the most successful Disney film of all time, Finding Nemo, Finding Dory needs to live up to it’s expectations especially since it caters to both the original fans and of course the new set of kids that will watch it. With Dory being one of the most liked side characters in all of Disney history, this is sure to be a massive hit.
4. The Jungle Book
As one of the best cartoons to ever set food on television, The Jungle Book is a movie that everyone simply can’t wait to watch. And now that it has been released, it has received critical acclaim and a whopping 100% rating in rotten tomatoes. Can you imagine that? As a live action movie from an original Disney cartoon, this was incredibly made and the aesthetics are simply stunning. Indeed we forgot about our worries with this one.
3. Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice
Although it has already been released, Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice had already been highly anticipated since last year. However, unfortunately it has met mixed reviews when it comes to superhero movies. Of course it really is up to the person to decide whether a movie is good or not. But the majority’s opinion matters as well. It may have surpassed Man of Steel, but it sure can’t sit side by side against the next entry in this top 10 list.
2. The Avengers: Civil War
Just as the previous one’s concept, another hero vs. hero movie by far outweighs everyone else in the list except for maybe one which will be introduced later. Marvel has simply exploded into epic proportions with it’s international popularity and it’s state of the art story lines that grab everyone’s attention and stealing the spotlight from the previous entry. We can’t wait to see Captain America and Ironman go head to head while we get excited for Spiderman to join the show.
1. Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them
Arguably one of the most anticipated movies of not just this summer but this entire year, Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them is sure to be a big hit. After the massive fandom that the Harry Potter series and books have gained and is still increasing, surely we all have been waiting for something from the same universe that the incredible J.K. Rowling had created. Indeed by far, the most anticipated of them all.
