The Best Movie Releases of 2016
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2
Catniss had her last hoorah with the latest installment of The Hunger Games. The film is the last of Philip Seymour Hoffman, who passed away sadly while the movie was being filmed. The series was also Jennifer Lawrence’s coming out party, and has made her into a global icon. But there are more series than those of the actors involved to get excited about the release of Mockingjay Part 2 on DVD and Blu-Ray. Fan of the dystopia genre, where the silent majority is forced to do what they can to survive, are no doubt excited for a chance to see Catniss in action one last time.
The film that finally won Leonardo DiCaprio an Oscar is coming out on DVD and Blu-Ray in April of 2016. Not to give away any spoilers, but the film features an entanglement with a bear, numerous exciting clashes with Native Americans, and a gritty tale of survival based on the true story of Hugh Glass, the 19th century bear trapper. DiCaprio called it the hardest film he’s ever shot, and luckily he was finally able to win an Oscar for his work in the film, a feat he didn’t manage even with Titanic.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens
The latest installment in the Star Wars saga from Disney is no doubt exciting for Star Wars fans. But this film opened up the Star Wars story to a whole new generation of viewers. Regardless of what viewers thought of the film and how good of a job Disney did at portraying the galaxy far, far away, the simple fact that this is a Star Wars film enables it to make the list of top releases of 2016.
Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice
This superhero flick has Ben Affleck coming to play Batman and Henry Cavill staying in his Superman role. It’s yet to hit theaters March 25th of this year, and one can expect it to hit DVD and Blu-Ray sometime around the holiday season. This is an exciting release for comic book fans and even casual fans of the superhero genre.
Captain America: Civil War
The trailers for this film have been exciting, to say the least. The inclusion of a ton of characters, including a new portrayal of Spiderman is bound to get people excited for this movie set to hit theaters in May. Like Batman vs. Superman, it will most likely hit DVD and Blu-Ray players sometime during the holiday season.
