If 2015 taught us anything at the movies, it’s that big budget flicks are just as popular as ever. A total of 61 films grossed over $100 million worldwide, with Jurassic World leading the way, raking in nearly $1.7 billion globally. This year looks like it may match the blockbusters of 2015, here are the most anticipated movies of 2016.

There is certainly no shortage of superheroes on this upcoming movies list. Perhaps the two most anticipated movies of 2016 are Deadpool and Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. It will be interesting to see a new Marvel superhero (played by Ryan Reynolds) franchise take shape, and audiences are definitely already on the edge of their seats, waiting to see whether Ben Affleck is more Christian Bale or George Clooney, when it comes to playing The Dark Knight.

There are also several animated films coming out in 2016. Dory gets her very own flick in Finding Dory. The addictive game Angry Birds is finally coming to the big screen. And, if you haven’t had enough of Kung Fu Panda, the third installment will come at audiences in 3D on January 29.

If you’re into remakes, re-imaginings, or spinoffs, the future movies 2016 should not disappoint. The all-girls Ghostbusters crew starring Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones hits theaters on July 15. Johnny Depp and Anne Hathaway star in Alice Through the Looking Glass, where Alice returns to Wonderland and travels back in time in order to save the Mad Hatter. Additionally, J.K. Rowling makes her screenwriting debut with Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, a Harry Potter spinoff starring Eddie Redmayne.

Which do you think are the best movies coming out soon? Be sure to up vote for the upcoming Hollywood movies that you are most excited for.
