#1 – Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice

Release Date: March 25

Plot: Everyone starts with the best, so did we. Batman vs Superman is a formidable fight based story in which Superman and Batman don’t like one another. Duh! Obvious from the title, right? What is the root of this hatred? If you have seen Man of Steel, you would know. The rancor is fueled further by Lex Luthor placing them in a knockdown against each other. To add the glitter, lands Wonder Woman.

Cast: Ben Affleck (Batman), Henry Cavill (Superman), Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman), Jesse Eisenberg (Lex Luthor).

Why should you watch: Warner Bros has been teasing the audience with this crossover, for many years. Finally, it’s here. We have always known Bale as Bruce Wayne and Batman. It’s intriguing enough to wait and see if Affleck can pull it off? On the other hand, we have Jesse (Mark Zuckerberg of Hollywood) playing Lex Luthor. Really? To find out these answers, one should not miss this dual, at any cost.


#2 – Deadpool

Releases Date: February 12

Plot: A Cancer-stricken venal human with sass transforms into Deadpool under unavoidable situations. The result is nothing but a Superhero with a savage attitude.

Cast: Ryan Reynolds, Nolan North.

Why should you watch: Reynold played Deadpool previously, in Wolverine, Talk had that, it is the worst interpretation of the comic character. On the contrary, this solo movie of Deadpool does justice to the tag, “Merc with a Mouth”. With many serious, boring, conventional superhero movies, a fag like Deadpool is going to flip the coin for you.


#3 – Hail, Caesar!

Release Date: February 5

Plot: Baird Whitlock, a Hollywood superstar gets abducted. Eddie Mannix, the studio fixer is given the duty of getting him back to where he belongs before it turns out to be scandalous.

Cast: George Clooney  (Baird Whitlock), Josh Brolin (Eddie Mannix), Channing Tatum, Scarlett Johansson.  

Why should you watch: How can you even dare to miss the dopey version of George Clooney? How long has it been since you watched a typical satirical film? I have got two things for you. The Coen Brothers and CHANNING TATUM.


#4 – Suicide Squad

Release Date: August 5

Plot: A deadly group of supervillains (Interesting to find Deadshot and Harley Quinn in the group) gets hired to fight against a vicious enemy. As the fight prolongs, the squad realizes that they’re on the verge of losing. Will they quit? Will they die? Will they save the day? Who is the execrable enemy of theirs?

Cast: Jared Leto, Will Smith, Margot Robbie et. al.

Why should you watch: In a world where Ben Affleck is striving to impress the audience with his Batman, Suicide Squad is entirely of the unique, insane and weird cast. I’m not saying that it’s entirely good, but it’s definitely worth watching. Wait. Did I forget to mention The Joker above? And that Jared Leto is portraying it?


#5 – Captain America: Civil War

Release Date: May 6

Plot: Iron Man and Captain America punch one another in the face.

Cast: Chris Evans (Captain America), Robert Downey Jr (Iron Man).

Release Date: November 4

Plot: Doctor Stephen Strange is a surgeon who gets introduced to magic after being subjected to a car accident. With few other people accompanying him, he fights a villain with his plausible superpowers.

Cast: Benedict Cumberbatch

Why should you watch: If you take a look at other Marvel movies, this one emerges out to be different. Derrickson, who had a history of movies like The Exorcism of Emily Rose, Sinister adds touch up to the movie with the intriguing darkness that would vary it from other Marvel movies. If you’re a Sherlock BBC fan, this movie is a must for you.


#7 – X-Men: Apocalypse

Release Date: May 27

Plot: The name itself speaks for the story. In this sequel, we get to the meet the most dangerous mutant, Apocalypse. Raven along with Professor X hire a bunch of X-Men to stop the upcoming Apocalypse.

Cast: Jennifer Lawrence (Raven), James McAvoy (Professor X), Oscar Isaac (Apocalypse), Michael Fassbender, Sophie Turner.

Why should you watch: The two things that keep you hooked with the movie is involved with Oscar Isaac. One, he is playing the main villain and the other is that he is playing against X-Men. As the movie is set up in the 1980s, we can see our mutants in their young age and their past experiences.


#8 – Finding Dory

Plot: Don’t we all love Finding Nemo? Even now, after years after release. This time, it’s Dory. The adorable blue Dory sets on a search quest for his parents with his two friends Marlin and Nemo.

Cast:  Ellen DeGeneres (Dory)

Why should you watch: Finding Dory is a premise for us to return to the underwater world. As the movie awakens the inner child in every one of us, there is no reason to be not excited about this movie. Especially, when it’s coming from Andrew Stanton (The director of Finding Nemo).


#9 – Ghostbusters

Release Date: July 15

Plot: If you’re a 90’s kid, I bet you all watched Ghostbusters once or more than once. This modern version is an amalgamation of gender-swapped casting and contemporary style of the original ghost gang.

Cast: Kate McKinnon, Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones.

Why should you watch: Reboots often tend to boring and exhausting. But, this one stands at the top of the list. Not only it is entirely feminine but is a classic comedy. Oh! Did I forget to mention the cameos of Chris Hemsworth, Ernie Hudson, Bill Murray, Annie Potts, Dan Akroyd and Sigourney Weaver? So yeah.


#10 – The Witch

Release Date: February 26

Plot: Plot is being kept hidden and we would support it that way.

Cast: Anya Taylor-Joy, Ralph Ineson

Why should you watch: In the age of spoilers and trailers, it is not easy to go watch a movie without having the basic idea. Don’t try to dig more. It’s good once in a while, to go watch a movie without having expectations. That way, you will take it with a fresh mind and irrespective of its status, it will give you a memory. One thing for sure, that this movie is not only visually compelling but is also a provokingly spooky horror that will give you chill down the spine. A riveting story filled with black magic, family fraternity and lot of unraveling. Go watch, already.


#11 – The BFG

Release Date: July 1

Plot: “The BFG” of the title stands for “The Big Friendly Giant”. The Giant in the movie befriends a small girl, Sophie. As the movie is based on the classic scribbled by Melissa Mathison, it is adapted in an exclusive way by Steven Spielberg.

Cast: Ruby Barnhill, Mark Rylance.

Why should you watch: It’s the first collaboration between Spielberg and Mathison after thirty years. Mark Rylance, who stole the show of Bridge of Spies is also uniting with Speilberg to make it even more ecstatic.

Plot: Newt Scamander, a magic-zoologist reaches New York to collect some of the beasts that escaped from his briefcase. The plot revolves around him explaining what are those beasts and how, where to find them.

Cast: Eddie Redmayne (Newt Scamander)

Why you should watch: Screenplay by JK Rowling? How can you say a no? A chance to revise the Harry Potter’s world? We are all dying for that? Aren’t we? In Fantastic Beasts, we get introduced to a new set of characters with magical creatures like Hippogriff from Harry’s book. And-and-and, the Oscar winner!


#13 – Zoolander 2

Release Date: February 12

#14 – Star Trek Beyond

Release Date: July 22

Plot: The crew of the U.S.S (Starship) Enterprise goes on a mission into space in this production of Paramount Pictures. The film has been penned by Alex Kurtzman, who wrote Star Trek into Darkness scribes and Star Trek as well. In this picture, we get to witness Mr. Spock and Captain Kirk together against the mystery villain. No! Not Khan.

Cast: Zachary Quinto (Spock), Chris Pine (Captain Kirk), Idris Elba (Mystery Villain).

Why should you watch: If you’re a Star Trek fan, probably it won’t be easy for you to go watch a film without J.J. Abrams. Unless you are sure that the other director is going to justify the fan sentiment and can withhold the emotion inside with character beats. Justin Lin has proved himself efficient with his Fast & Furious movies and I guess this Star Trek is going to be badass than the other films of the series.

#15 – The Nice Guys

Release Date: May 20
Plot: A private eye detective along with an enforcer together goes on a cruise to solve a 1970 mystery that is set up in Los Angeles. As the title speaks, these guys are not really as nice as they appear and the bad luck makes them even worse.

Cast: Ryan Gosling (Detective), Russell Crowe (Enforcer).

Why should you watch: The answer to this question is, the trailer If you have watched the trailer, you know why. An action-comedy with Russell Crowe harking towards 1970’s and following the patterns of his cult classics. How long has it been since you have watched a bromance?
