I know what you’re thinking. The next instalment of Star Wars won’t be hitting cinemas until the middle of next year and, well, how on earth are you going to distract yourself between now and then?
Fortunately, a whole bunch of sufficiently fantastic films are coming out in the next 12 months. So many, in fact, we thought we’d better write them all down, just so we don’t miss any.
Less fotunately, our list quickly got a little out of control, so we had to cut it down to a manageable Top 10. Honestly, between film releases, Netflix premières and napping, I don’t know if I’ll have time to work at all this year.
Here are 10 films we can’t wait to see in The Year I Quit My Job To Become A Full-Time Consumer of Popular Culture (formerly, 2016).
When’s it out? July 14
We’ve compiled our list in no particular order, but if we had to name the film we’re most looking forward to, it would have to be the all-female reboot of Ghostbusters.
It looks bloody hilarious and stars Bridesmaids’ Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Wiig, along with cameos from the original GB cast.
A few nay-saying idiots (*cough* mostly men) have voiced concerns that the ladies might not be able to cut it, but we know who we’d call in a paranormal emergency.
2. Finding Dory
When’s it out? June 17
It’s been 12 years since Pixar released their hit film Finding Nemo. For Dory, Marlin and Nemo though, it’s only been six months.
The trio return in a new underwater adventure, which take them all the way to the coast of California.
Everyone’s favourite amnesiac animated fish Dory (voiced by Ellen Degeneres) is the focus of the film as she embarks on a mission to find her family.
