From where we’re sitting, 2016 looks very much like it is going to be an embarrassment of riches in terms of cinema. Filmmakers are set to gift us with superhero smacksdowns, animated tales, video game adaptations, original comedies, comedy sequels, reboots, debuts and a giant galactic heist movie. There truly is something for everybody.
As we plant our feet squarely on the leading edge of what we expect to be a great year in film, our writers have set to work – waxing lyrical about the films they’re anxiously awaiting in the coming months. Of course, there are countless upcoming scheduled releases that have caught our eye – Race (February 19th), 10 Cloverfield Lane (March 11th), Whiskey Tango Foxtrot (April 22nd), Elvis And Nixon (April 29th), The Boss (June 10th), The Magnificent Seven (September 23rd), and Passengers (December 23rd), to give honourable mention to just a few – but a list such as this requires ruthless focus.

Similarly, there are a number of films for which we are expecting international theatrical releases in 2016, but which have yet to be scheduled, for one reason or another. The Family Fang, John Wick 2, Nocturnal Animals, The Zookeeper’s Wife, The Circle, Cell, The Bad Batch, American Pastoral, Godzilla Resurgence, Story Of Your Life, and Manchester-By-The-Sea all have us poised to book tickets.
But, it is a much more specific list that has us really, truly excited. These are the films that have been on our collective radar for some time, and their 2016 release dates are now confirmed. Here, then, is the definitive run-down of WGTC’s most anticipated movies of 2016.
