2015 has been an interesting year for film. There have been a lot of great releases and more than a few disappointments, and that’s something which will no doubt be the case in 2016 as well. It’s hard to say whether next year is ultimately more exciting, though Star Wars: The Force Awakens aside, and 2016 actually has a significantly larger number of big releases.
From reboots (Ghostbusters) to sequels (Star Trek Beyond) and history making moments on film (Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice), 2016 will be huge, but there is a surprisingly long list of 2016 movies which we currently know pretty much next to nothing about!
Some may have already released still, synopses and trailers, but those have done very little to shed any light on what’s to come. So, with that in mind, here you will find the ten 2016 movies which we can’t wait to see, despite the fact that they’re complete mysteries. Hell, it’s fair to say that some of these may just be even more secretive than the new Star Wars…
10. Independence Day: Resurgence
Other than the basic premise that aliens have returned to attack the Earth twenty years after the events of the first movie, Roland Emmerich’s long delayed Independence Day sequel is definitely a 2016 release we know very little about. There are conflicting rumours about which of the new cast members have ties to fan-favourite characters from the movie which turned Will Smith into a star, but it’s sadly already been confirmed that one original who won’t be returning is indeed Smith. That’s quite possibly one of the only confirmed pieces of information we have so far, but as shooting actually wrapped up back in August, a trailer which sheds some light on what’s to come in the movie can’t be too far away at this point.
