Nerds gather! It’s going to be a really fun year for us! 2015 had it’s perks, especially now with the launch of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but 2016 sounds really good also. So I’ve browsed the announcements for the current movie releases, and here is my favorite picks. There’s no particular order, simply because I cannot decide for which of them I’m most enthusiast. I’d be curious though to hear your personal pick from this list.

Doctor Strange

Another screening of the beloved Marvel story, based on the comic book, it presents the story of a brilliant doctor who takes up the battle against the evil and tries to protect the world after becoming a sorcerer’s apprentice. After quite a battle, the movie will be directed by Scott Derrickson, well-known for directing some famous horror movies. The official release is set for 4th of November, 2016. And we are still waiting for the official trailer.

Suicide Squad

This bad-ass story with super villains who form a new organization that executes dangerous assignments for a shorter prison sentence looks like a big hit. If you take a look an the cast list, it will definitely draw your attention with actors such as Margot Robbie, Cara Delevingne,Ben Affleck, Jared Leto, Will Smith and Scott Eastwood, just to name a few.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story
