2016 Summer Movie Preview

2016 Summer Movie Preview by  9280 views

Summer is coming soon, and so does a bunch of premieres in the cinemas. We’ve made a digest of the most anticipated upcoming movies that are whether sci-fi, adventure, fantasy or based on a game. Here we go!

Captain America: Civil War (May 6)


It’s a movie that includes all the Avengers, plus Ant-Man and Black Panther, will also feature Spider-Man and Aunt May as well? We’ll see on May 6th. Civil War is already collecting some of the best reviews in Marvel Studios history, and by pitting Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) against Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), it will certainly show all other movies how to do a superhero film right. You can watch the Captain America: Civil War trailer.

The Angry Birds Movie (May 20)


Rovio Entertainment's super popular mobile game comes to the big screen as a 3D animated family film. Jason Sudeikis voices Red, a hermit bird who is filled with rage that may come in handy once his tropical island is invaded by green pigs.

Alice Through the Looking Glass (May 27)


Do you remember an extremely beautiful Tim Burton’s movie Alice in Wonderland? So those awesome actors and fairy creatures are back! Johnny Depp is still mad as a hatter. Mia Wasikowska's Alice is whisked away again to the world of wonderland where she will confront with the half-clockwork demigod Time as played by Sacha Baron Cohen. You can watch the Alice Through The Looking Glass trailer.

X-Men: Apocalypse (May 27)


Saving the world… Again! Professor Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) once again must save us from a mutant. That villain is played by Oscar Isaac in some silly-looking purple make-up, but perhaps he won't look so silly when he tries to wipe out the human race along with his Four Horsemen: Angel, Psylocke, Storm and Magneto, the latter reprised by Michael Fassbender. Jennifer Lawrence's Mystique will lead a new group of young X-Men. The X-Men: Apocalypse trailer is available!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows (June 3)


Dave Green is probably the first person to grow up a fan of the Turtles to get to direct a movie of them, and the early previews show a distinct love for the '90s animated cartoon. Shredder is still in play, but this time, the bad boy is alien Krang (Fred Armisen) and his trashers - Bebop and Rocksteady. You can watch the TMNT: Out of the Shadows Trailer.

Warcraft (June 10)


Different from other Tolkien-inspired fantasy epics that paint orc-like creatures as villainous garbage, this one looks to bring sympathy to the "enemy" in order to create a more humane adventure where the two clans unite. Warcraft: The Beginning trailer is available.

The BFG (July 1)


Steven Spielberg finally brings Roald Dahl's classic to life. Newcomer Rubie Barnhill plays Sophie, the precocious young girl who is kidnapped to the giant world by the title Big Friendly Giant, played by Mark Rylance in a motion-capture performance.

The Legend of Tarzan (July 1)


Alexander Skarsgård plays the role of the classic jungle hero in an original story which features a now-civilized Tarzan returning to his wild origins. Margot Robbie is Jane, Samuel L. Jackson is the sidekick and Christoph Waltz is the bad guy in this big-budget adventure from Harry Potter director David Yates. The Legend of Tarzan trailer is available.

Ghostbusters (July 15)


Kristen Wiig leads a team that includes Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones, Kate McKinnon and Chris Hemsworth as they capture free-repeaters and vapors all over New York.

Ice Age: Collision Course (July 22)


The fifth part of Ice Age series finds Manny, Sid, Diego, and the rest of the team on a new adventure after Scrat does a few things that may change the face of the planet.

Star Trek Beyond (July 22)


This time out Kirk & Co. find themselves in a hard situation without a ship on an unknown planet facing a new enemy led by Krall (Idris Elba).

Suicide Squad (Aug. 5)


The DC Extended Universe expands with a strongly anticipated movie. Rick Flag (Joel Kinnaman) leads the ragtag team of criminals known as Task Force X - including Will Smith as Deadshot and Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn - on a mission against an unknown threat. David Ayer (End of Watch) directs, with Ben Affleck reprising his role as Batman and Jared Leto as The Joker. You can watch the Suicide Squad trailer as well.

Pete's Dragon (Aug. 12)


A remake of Disney's 1977 classic, which was a blend of live-action and animation. That hasn't changed, although David Lowery will be able to render that dragon in photorealistic ways.
