In just a few short months, 2015 will end with its typical parade of thought-provoking awards bait films, the type of stuff that will absolutely reward your time, if not your sense of fun. If you’re the type of moviegoer who’s waiting anxiously for next year’s biggest laughs and biggest action scenes, then you’re in luck. Next year’s biggest films are already wrapping up production so that studios can get them out the door in time. In 2016, superheroes will still rule the day, off-the-wall comedies will abound and when you want to round up the family, there will be some animated comedies to chose from. There’s a lot to look forward to in the cineplex next year; just check out these contenders!
1. Captain America: Civil War
Marvel’s 2016 tentpole may very well be a shoe-in for highest grossing picture of next year. With more than six months still to go until the film’s May 6 release, fans are already foaming at the mouth to see Robert Downey Junior’s snarky billionaire go toe-to-toe with Chris Evan’s boy scout out of time. Directed by the new MCU head honchos Anthony and Joe Russo, Captain America: Civil War also features the first appearance of Tom Holland as the MCU’s Spider-Man and chameleonic lead actor Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther, plus pretty much every other superpowered person you’ve ever seen in a Marvel movie (but not Thor).
