Landing at a theater near you, will be some blockbuster 2016 new movies.
To start it off, the Coen brothers are bringing their unique style back to the big screen with “Hail, Caesar!” coming out in February.
“This one they take on 1930’s Hollywood, with Josh Brolin as a film producer who loses his lead played by George Clooney, he’s kidnapped. Great cast, should be a lot of fun,” said Mark Mazrimas, Marketing Manager for Classic Cinemas.
Also in February, Zoolander is back and trying to save the world’s most beautiful people from assassination in “Zoolander 2.”
“‘Zoolander’ was not a big box office movie originally and it became more of a bigger cult film, as it came out on video and DVD, so that could be a surprise hit,” said Mazrimas.
The year will also bring a slew of superheroes, and super villains, starting with “Batman vs. Superman” in March.
“This has Ben Affleck putting on the Batman cowl, and of course, Henry Cavill, who played Superman in the last movie, is back. Warner Bros. is hoping that this brings the Justice League out in a series of movies after this,” said Mazrimas.
In May, Marvel gets in on the action with “Captain America: Civil War,” where the Avengers are back, but not all on the same side.
And in August, DC Comics returns, giving the superhero movie a wicked twist with “Suicide Squad.”
“These are all the arch villains who are imprisoned, and they bring them out for black-ops missions to go out and kind of save the world. So they have the villains saving the world,” said Mazrimas.
The summer also brings movies for the whole family to enjoy, starting with a sequel swimming to the big screen in June.
Mazrimas explains, “Do you remember ‘Finding Nemo?’ Well this time we’re going to have ‘Finding Dory,’ with Ellen DeGeneres doing the voice as Dory goes looking for their family.”
And Nemo was voiced by a local student from District 204.
2016 will see more reboots, prequels, and sequels all hoping to blow you away.
