The summer of 2016 promises to be jam-packed with great titles, which we will watch over and over again even, why not, in the years to come.
Here is a list of the best releases in 2016:
The Big Friendly Giant (22 July 2016 – UK)
You can never go wrong when you hear the name Steven Spielberg, and this does not seem to be an exception. Telling the story of a girl named Sophie that encounters the Big Friendly Giant, Spielberg is set to make us connect with the child inside us once more. Similar to E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, with the story of a child that meets an unknown life form and forms a bond with it, this release is sure to warm our hearts.
Jason Bourne (27 July 2016 – UK)
The franchise starring Matt Damon is a hit again, with a new iteration simply called Jason Bourne. A very simple but powerful marketing strategy that uses a very good insight: “you know his name”. With this release we will see Jason Bourne remember who he is as well as him trying to find the secrets of his past life. We only hope that it does not follow the path of so many sequels, by ruining a pretty decent run so far. After watching Jason Bourne, try on a few of the best mafia movies ever – Bourne will definitely help you get in the mood of those.
Suicide Squad (5 August 2016 – UK)
Another Comic Book movie, but this time everyone is excited from the start. It has been the focus of many ComiCons since the release of its first trailer, and while the story behind it might not be as popular to normal folks, it does seem to score high in popularity. That and the fact that it has quite a high profile cast (Margot Robbie, Cara Delevingne, Will Smith, Ben Affleck, Jared Let) makes it even more interesting. A must see for anyone who does and doesn’t love the genre.
Finding Dory (29 July 2016 – UK)
Finding Nemo is a classic already, and for good reasons to be so. It had everything you would want, no matter how old you were or if you even liked animations of not. Our only hope is that Pixar does what it always does: deliver. So we’ve saved our seats for what seems to be great fun, featuring the friendly and adorable Dory on her journey to find her family. And how could she not be, with Ellen DeGeneres doing her voice.
Sausage Party (2 September 2016 – UK)
IMDb says that this is “an animated movie about one sausage’s quest to discover the truth about his existence”, and we believe them, especially after we’ve seen the trailer. There’s nothing more to add here as this just sounds insanely funny. Nothing too complicated, and no subliminal messages, just pure, simple, and uncensored comedy. Give blockbusters a break and give this a chance.
