Top 10 Most Anticipated Movies of 2016

Suicide Squad looks like a blast.

Before 1/12 of the year is gone, here are some films I'm looking forward to in 2016. Note: I left out films (like Knight of Cups, The Lobster, Silence, Sing Street, Genius, High-Rise, Wait, Glassland, The Light Between Oceans, Demolition, The Secret Scripture, Midnight Special, Trespass Against Us, Money Monster, and Jane Got a Gun) that were expected to be released in 2015. Also, I’m not counting on another Terrence Malick film, apart from Knight of Cups, being released this year.

    1. Thanks. Love your picks. If I hadn't had Money Monster on my radar last year, it probably would've made my top 10.

  3. The Witch, Suicide Squad and the Neon Demon are on my list too! nice Guys looks hysterical

    1. Yay! Haha, I can't wait to see The Nice Guys!

  4. Great list! Of your top 10, I'm especially looking forward to the films by Lonergan, Dolan, Edwards and Refn. I compiled my own on letterboxd:

    1. Thanks, Chris! I want to see a lot of the films on your list. I don't think we'll get The Death and Life of John F. Donovan in 2016, so I didn't include it. Hope I'm wrong. ;)
