2015 has come and gone, but 2016 shows promise of an exciting year for movies. So Aroundtable has compiled a list of films simply based on personal interest, of course. In some cases, we haven’t even read a synopsis or know the title of the movie but we are simply uber excited to see them.
Kung Fu Panda 3
Our loveable panda Po and the Furious Five, battle the forces of evil in the third entry of this franchise.
Marvel’s favourite “Merc with a Mouth” finally gets his own solo film. So far, the trailer hits the mark. The film looks to have kept the essence of the character by mixing humour with hard core action. Please take note that this movie is Rated R, so please do not bring the kids.

Batman V Superman
Here we go; the two biggest icons from the DC Universe share the silver screen and set up the Justice League. Yeah!
The oldest and most powerful mutant, Apocalypse, awakens after thousands of years and is disillusioned with the world he finds. Apocalypse gathers a group of mutants, including Magneto, in order to cleanse mankind and create a new world order.
It took thirteen years but, we finally get an adventure from the point of view of the friendly-but -forgetful fish Dory.
Star Trek: Beyond
The Fast and the Furious director Justin Lin takes over the reins from J.J. Abrams who has been busy in a galaxy far, far away. After the nostalgia driven Star Trek: Into Darkness, this one promises to be a brand new adventure. Can’t wait to see what the crew of the Enterprise has to offer this time out even if the first trailer is a bit of a let down.
Bourne 5 (no title as of yet)
No information has been released except for the fact that they are bringing back Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass. I really enjoyed the series so far and hope that fifth installment is not a let down.
August 5, 2016
Getting tired of the same ol’ good versus evil story lines, well how about the bad versus evil? This movie takes the superhero genre and turns it upside by taking some of DC’s bad guys and has them save the day.
The Magnificent Seven
This film stars Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke & Vincent D’onofrio and retells a Hollywood Classic. With all this star power and adding director Antoine Fuqua (The Equalizer, Training Day) to the mix, it may just revitalize the Western.
Jack Reacher: Never Go Back
Cruise, hot of heels of Mission Impossible, continues to cruise into action mode in his second rendition of Jack Reacher. This time, our hero returns to his old unit, where he faces accusations of homicide.
November 4, 2016
Marvel has taken the movie world by storm with hit after hit in the superhero genre. Apparently, their expansion into the cosmos with Guardians Of The Galaxy was only the beginning. Doctor Strange promises to take us even further by delving into the mind tripping worlds of the magical and the mystical.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story
The concensus is that the film is about a band of rebels who are on a quest to steal the plans of the original Death Star.
