I’ve been recently looking into which films are going to be released in 2016 and there’s a fair few that I’d like to see. Maybe making a list of them will motivate me to take advantage of the 2 for 1 cinema tickets I get from my car insurance…
The Girl On The Train
I read the book ‘The Girl On The Train’ by Paula Hawkins and I absolutely loved it: I read it in about three sittings. It starts of with Rachel, who takes the same train journey everyday and notices the people living in a specific house that the train stops near. The book is written from the point of view of 3 different characters so it will be interesting to see how the film interprets this. Also, Emily Blunt is going to play the main character, all the more reason to go and see it.
The H8ful Eight
I want to watch this film because the trailer reminded me of Django, which is one of my favourite films of all time. From what I’ve read online, in the film, some time after the Civil War, bounty hunter John Ruth and his fugitive captive Daisy Domergue head for the town of Red Rock, where Ruth plans to bring Daisy to justice. Quentin Tarantino recently revealed that The H8ful Eight started as an idea for a sequel to Django, which is also one of the films he has directed. If The H8ful Eight is as half as good as Django I will be very impressed.
Now You See Me 2
I went to the cinema to watch the first Now You See Me film and thought it was amazing. I usually hate films about magic but I found this one really interesting. Let’s hope that the second installment is as good as the first…
How To Be Single
From what I’ve read, the film follows Alice, Robin, Lucy, Meg, Tom and David who are all learning to be single. I’m probably only excited about this film because the cast includes Rebel Wilson and Dakota Johnson. Two very good actresses, in my opinion. I watched the trailer with my friend and it looks hilarious.
This film is based on the Nicholas Sparks book The Choice, which I thought was a really good read. From what I remember it made me cry loads, so perhaps I shouldn’t go to the cinema to watch this. It’s about Travis and Gabby, who meet when they become neighbours and start at relationships which is tested by life changing events.
Finally, a horror movie! Horror is probably my favourite genre of film: they have more twists and surprises than dramas and comedies. The film is about an American nanny who takes a job looking after an English family’s boy, who is actually a life-sized doll. After breaking the strict rules of taking car of the ‘boy’, she begins to believe that the doll is really alive. Since watching the trailer a while ago I’ve really wanted to watch it.
In Dirty Grandpa, just before his wedding, an Zach Efron is tricked into driving his grandfather, Robert De Niro, to Florida for spring break. I’ve seen the trailer and it looks hilarious.
Bridget Jones’s Baby
Who else is excited about this? I’m sure the entire female population is looking forward to the long-awaited final installment of the Bridget Jones adventure. However, I’ve read the book so I know that the film is only going to break my heart. I won’t tell you why so I don’t spoil the ending if you haven’t read the book.
Ride Along 2
Firstly, if you haven’t seen the first Ride Along film then you definitely need to. Kevin Hart and Ice Cube are the best comedy combination. In the second film, Ben heads to Miami with his soon-to-be brother-in-law James to bring down a drug dealer. I’m definitely going to the cinema to watch it.
Thanks for reading!
