As if you weren’t already excited for the New Year, here are 3 upcoming movies that will hit theaters in 2016. From animated comedies and action -packed spin chillers, there’s something fun for all your friends and family to enjoy.
This is a brand new movie taking a different approach on life, where animals rule and humans never existed. It’s hard to believe there are still problems in their world. It all takes place in a city called Zootopia where a fox by the name of Nick Wilde (played by Jason Bateman) tries to make it big. In a surprise twist he turns out to be wanted for a crime he didn’t commit. While on the run, he runs into Zootopia’s top cop Judy Hopps (played by Ginnifer Goodwin). She also becomes wanted on a conspiracy. Once they are forced to team up they realize even uncommon pairs can lead to a friendship. Expect to see Zootopia in theaters March 4, 2016.
The long awaited sequel to the original Finding Nemo is here. After 13 years Pixar has announced that Finding Dory will be released June 17, 2016. As you may know Finding Nemo left us happy, and some of us even teary eyed (joyful tears of course). Marlin (Nemo’s dad) found Nemo with the help of Dory. Dory, a Regal Tang with short term memory loss, begins to remember childhood memories. So she sets out to find her family in Monterey, California accompanied by Nemo and Marlin. Finding Dory will have the same stars we know and love such as Ellen Degeneres (playing as Dory) and Albert Brooks(as Marlin)but, also expect to see new characters and hear new cast such as Bailey (played by Ty Burrell) a new character in the sequel and Charlie (played by Eugene Levy).
The Jungle Book
The Jungle Book is our favorite movie growing up and now it’s being made into a live action film brought to life. With an amazing cast filled with A- List actors such as Scarlett Johansson as Kaa, Christopher Walken as King Louie, and Bill Murray as Baloo, the film will definitely be a hit. The film is an all-around incredible adventure that follows an orphan boy who is raised in the jungle by a pack of wolves, a bear, and a black panther. The Jungle Book will be released April 15, 2016 so don’t miss it.
2016 already seems exciting. With 3 thrilling movies on the rise and all of them featuring an amazing group of actors. I wouldn’t be surprised if your New Year’s resolution for this year is to become a movie buff.
