Top 5 Books You Must Read

1. The Grand Budapest Hotel

The Grand Budapest Hotel recounts the adventures of Gustave H (Ralph Fiennes), a legendary concierge at a famous European hotel between the wars, and Zero Moustafa (Tony Revolori), the lobby boy who becomes his most trusted friend. Acting as a kind of father figure, M. Gustave leads the resourceful Zero on a journey that involves the theft and recovery of a priceless Renaissance painting; the battle for an enormous family fortune; a desperate chase on motorcycles, trains, sleds and skis; and the sweetest confection of a love affair all against the backdrop of a suddenly and dramatically changing Continent. Inspired by the writings of Stefan Zweig, The Grand Budapest Hotel recreates a bygone era through its arresting visuals and sparkling dialogue. The charm and vibrant colors of the film gradually darken with a sense of melancholy as the forces of history conspire against our hero and his vanishing way of life. Written and directed by Wes Anderson, whose films include The Royal Tenenbaums , Moonrise Kingdom , and Fantastic Mr. Fox . The film also stars Jude Law, Tilda Swinton, Edward Norton, Jeff Goldblum, Harvey Keitel, Adrian Brody, Saoirse Ronan, Lea Seydoux, Bill Murray and Owen Wilson.

2. Les Miserables

The convict Jean Valjean is released from a French prison after serving nineteen years for stealing a loaf of bread and for subsequent attempts to escape from prison. When Valjean arrives at the town of Digne, no one is willing to give him shelter because he is an ex-convict. Desperate, Valjean knocks on the door of M. Myriel, the kindly bishop of Digne. Myriel treats Valjean with kindness, and Valjean repays the bishop by stealing his silverware. When the police arrest Valjean, Myriel covers for him, claiming that the silverware was a gift. The authorities release Valjean and Myriel makes him promise to become an honest man. Eager to fulfill his promise, Valjean masks his identity and enters the town of Montreuil-sur-mer. Under the assumed name of Madeleine, Valjean invents an ingenious manufacturing process that brings the town prosperity. He eventually becomes the town’s mayor.

Fantine, a young woman from Montreuil, lives in Paris. She falls in love with Tholomyès, a wealthy student who gets her pregnant and then abandons her. Fantine returns to her home village with her daughter, Cosette. On the way to Montreuil, however, Fantine realizes that she will never be able to find work if the townspeople know that she has an illegitimate child. In the town of Montfermeil, she meets the Thénardiers, a family that runs the local inn. The Thénardiers agree to look after Cosette as long as Fantine sends them a monthly allowance.

In Montreuil, Fantine finds work in Madeleine’s factory. Fantine’s coworkers find out about Cosette, however, and Fantine is fired. The Thénardiers demand more money to support Cosette, and Fantine resorts to prostitution to make ends meet. One night, Javert, Montreuil’s police chief, arrests Fantine. She is to be sent to prison, but Madeleine intervenes. Fantine has fallen ill, and when she longs to see Cosette, Madeleine promises to send for her. First, however, he must contend with Javert, who has discovered Madeleine’s criminal past. Javert tells Madeleine that a man has been accused of being Jean Valjean, and Madeleine confesses his true identity. Javert shows up to arrest Valjean while Valjean is at Fantine’s bedside, and Fantine dies from the shock.

After a few years, Valjean escapes from prison and heads to Montfermeil, where he is able to buy Cosette from the Thénardiers. The Thénardiers turn out to be a family of scoundrels who abuse Cosette while spoiling their own two daughters, Eponine and Azelma. Valjean and Cosette move to a run-down part of Paris. Javert discovers their hideout, however, and they are forced to flee. They find refuge in a convent, where Cosette attends school and Valjean works as a gardener.

Marius Pontmercy is a young man who lives with his wealthy grandfather, M. Gillenormand. Because of political differences within the family, Marius has never met his father, Georges Pontmercy. After his father dies, however, Marius learns more about him and comes to admire his father’s democratic politics. Angry with his grandfather, Marius moves out of Gillenormand’s house and lives as a poor young law student. While in law school, Marius associates with a group of radical students, the Friends of the ABC, who are led by the charismatic Enjolras. One day, Marius sees Cosette at a public park. It is love at first sight, but the protective Valjean does his utmost to prevent Cosette and Marius from ever meeting. Their paths cross once again, however, when Valjean makes a charitable visit to Marius’s poor neighbors, the Jondrettes. The Jondrettes are in fact the Thénardiers, who have lost their inn and moved to Paris under an assumed name. After Valjean leaves, Thénardier announces a plan to rob Valjean when he returns. Alarmed, Marius alerts the local police inspector, who turns out to be Javert. The ambush is foiled and the Thénardiers are arrested, but Valjean escapes before Javert can identify him.

Thénardier’s daughter Eponine, who is in love with Marius, helps Marius discover Cosette’s whereabouts. Marius is finally able to make contact with Cosette, and the two declare their love for each other. Valjean, however, soon shatters their happiness. Worried that he will lose Cosette and unnerved by political unrest in the city, Valjean announces that he and Cosette are moving to England. In desperation, Marius runs to his grandfather, M. Gillenormand, to ask for M. Gillenormand’s permission to marry Cosette. Their meeting ends in a bitter argument. When Marius returns to Cosette, she and Valjean have disappeared. Heartbroken, Marius decides to join his radical student friends, who have started a political uprising. Armed with two pistols, Marius heads for the barricades.

The uprising seems doomed, but Marius and his fellow students nonetheless stand their ground and vow to fight for freedom and democracy. The students discover Javert among their ranks, and, realizing that he is a spy, Enjolras ties him up. As the army launches its first attack against the students, Eponine throws herself in front of a rifle to save Marius’s life. As Eponine dies in Marius’s arms, she hands him a letter from Cosette. Marius quickly scribbles a reply and orders a boy, Gavroche, to deliver it to Cosette.

Valjean manages to intercept the note and sets out to save the life of the man his daughter loves. Valjean arrives at the barricade and volunteers to execute Javert. When alone with Javert, however, Valjean instead secretly lets him go free. As the army storms the barricade, Valjean grabs the wounded Marius and flees through the sewers. When Valjean emerges hours later, Javert immediately arrests him. Valjean pleads with Javert to let him take the dying Marius to Marius’s grandfather. Javert agrees. Javert feels tormented, torn between his duty to his profession and the debt he owes Valjean for saving his life. Ultimately, Javert lets Valjean go and throws himself into the river, where he drowns.

Marius makes a full recovery and is reconciled with Gillenormand, who consents to Marius and Cosette’s marriage. Their wedding is a happy one, marred only when Valjean confesses his criminal past to Marius. Alarmed by this revelation and unaware that it was Valjean who saved his life at the barricades, Marius tries to prevent Cosette from having contact with Valjean. Lonely and depressed, Valjean takes to his bed and awaits his death. Marius eventually finds out from Thénardier that Valjean saved Marius’s life. Ashamed that he mistrusted Valjean, Marius tells Cosette everything that has happened. Marius and Cosette rush to Valjean’s side just in time for a final reconciliation. Happy to be reunited with his adopted daughter, Valjean dies in peace.

  1.  The Longest Ride

Ira Levinson is in trouble. At ninety-one years old, in poor health and alone in the world, he finds himself stranded on an isolated embankment after a car crash. Suffering multiple injuries, he struggles to retain consciousness until a blurry image materializes and comes into focus beside him: his beloved wife Ruth, who passed away nine years ago. Urging him to hang on, she forces him to remain alert by recounting the stories of their lifetime together – how they met, the precious paintings they collected together, the dark days of WWII and its effect on them and their families. Ira knows that Ruth can’t possibly be in the car with him, but he clings to her words and his memories, reliving the sorrows and everyday joys that defined their marriage.

A few miles away, at a local rodeo, a Wake Forest College senior’s life is about to change. Recovering from a recent break-up, Sophia Danko meets a young cowboy named Luke, who bears little resemblance to the privileged frat boys she has encountered at school. Through Luke, Sophia is introduced to a world in which the stakes of survival and success, ruin and reward — even life and death – loom large in everyday life. As she and Luke fall in love, Sophia finds herself imagining a future far removed from her plans — a future that Luke has the power to rewrite . . . if the secret he’s keeping doesn’t destroy it first.

Ira and Ruth. Sophia and Luke. Two couples who have little in common, and who are separated by years and experience. Yet their lives will converge with unexpected poignancy, reminding us all that even the most difficult decisions can yield extraordinary journeys: beyond despair, beyond death, to the farthest reaches of the human heart.

4.The Theory of Everything: The Origin and Fate of the Universe

Based on a series of lectures given at Cambridge University, Professor Hawking’s work introduced “the history of ideas about the universe” as well as today’s most important scientific theories about time, space, and the cosmos in a clear, easy-to-understand way. “The Theory of Everything” presents the most complex theories, both past and present, of physics; yet it remains clear and accessible. It will enlighten readers and expose them to the rich history of scientific thought and the complexities of the universe in which we live.

The 30 most anticipated games of 2016

Starting with a rather massive list, I’ve whittled it down to just 30 picks – these are the games that I most excited to see and play in 2016. And please check back regularly, as I’ll update the list throughout the year as new games are announced and others released.

1. NO MAN’S SKY

Platforms: PlayStation 4, PC 

Who knew that a game made by a tiny indie team would be one of the headline games of the year? That’s the case with No Man’s Sky, a jaw-dropping space simulation that gives you your very own procedurally generated planet to explore, full of odd creatures and distinctive sights. And at any time, you can fly your ship into the stars and drop in on other users’ planets as well. It looks amazing, but can it really live up to the surprising hype?

Due: TBD 2015

2. THE LAST GUARDIAN

Platform: PlayStation 4

The Last Guardian – the long-awaited follow-up to Team Ico’s Shadow of the Colossus – was announced in 2009, and then it more or less disappeared. Just straight-up vanished.

But the stunning-looking adventure about a boy and his bird-dog-thing has resurfaced on the PS4 and will hopefully, barring further painful delays, release in 2016. The delay has only intensified our interest in this surely-emotional quest, and we can’t wait to finally experience it.

Due: TBD 2016

3. ADR1FT

Platforms: PS4, Xbox One, PC

Essentially an immersive video game twist on outer space nightmare film GravityAdr1ft finds you awaken on a demolished space station, alone and unsure of what happened.

With limited oxygen and minimal resources, you must float through the wreckage in zero gravity and piece together the events to led to your situation – and find a way back to Earth. It’s coming to consoles, but we may well wait to enjoy it with Oculus Rift, which sounds like the ultimate way to play something like this.

Due: Q1 2016

4. MASS EFFECT ANDROMEDA

Platforms: Xbox One, PS4, PC

What, you thought Mass Effect 3 was it? True, Commander Shepard’s story is complete, but EA’s beloved sci-fi universe is about to show off its true vastness with Mass Effect Andromeda.

It’s set well after the earlier trilogy, in the titular galaxy, and will use the Frostbite 3 engine to power “exciting new worlds, great characters, and intense action,” says EA. We don’t know a ton more than that for now, but hey, that’s a promising start.

Due: Q4 2016

5. UNCHARTED 4: A THIEF’S END

Platform: PlayStation 4

Naughty Dog’s blockbuster action-adventure trilogy delivered some of the most amazing moments we had on PS3, and now Uncharted 4 looks to do much the same on PS4. Expect more tense set-pieces, thrilling shootouts, and remarkable performances, along with some new tweaks: more open-ended navigation, along with conversational choices.

Will this really be Drake’s demise? We doubt it, but we can’t wait to find out either way. Don’t miss The Nathan Drake Collection in the meantime!

Due: 18 March

 

6. Inside

Platforms: Xbox One, PS4, PC, Xbox 360, PS3

Inside hails from the studio behind 2010’s marvelous indie side-scroller Limbo, which is enough to get us interested. Need more than that? Just check out the mysterious teaser trailer above, which oozes with style and utter dread. And… well, what’s inside that vat at the end?

We imagine the answer will drive this side-scrolling adventure, and if Limbo is any indication, it should be an amazing, memorable journey.

Due: TBD 2016

7. Rez Infinite

Platform: PlayStation 4 (VR)

If there’s any classic game that seems like a perfect fit for a virtual reality reboot, it’s certainly Sega’s Rez. And thank the heavens, it’s coming to PlayStation VR.

The dazzling, rhythm-matched shooter will be enhanced for PS4, with updated graphics and a brand new world, and the vivid wireframe worlds should be rather mind-blowing when surrounding you in the VR headset. It’ll work on PS4 without the headset too, but it ought to sell non-believers on Sony’s VR plans.

Due: TBD 2016

8. The Legend of Zelda

Platform: Wii U

Nintendo’s NX will debut in 2016, and is rumoured to possibly release this year as well – but the fantastic-looking, open-world Legend of Zelda seen at E3 2014 is still slated for the Wii U, the company says.

We wouldn’t be surprised to see it release on both, Twilight Princess-style, but whatever the case, we want it. Slated to be the largest and most open-ended entry to date, it should be a fine sendoff for Nintendo’s quirky, underperforming console.

Due: TBD 2016

9. Firewatch

Platform: PC, PlayStation 4

Hailing from a dream team of indie game makers – including the former leads of Telltale’s The Walking Dead, plus artist Olly Moss – Firewatch might not have the profile of most games on this list, but it looks absolutely dazzling.

As the trailer shows, it’s a first-person adventure in the wilderness of Yosemite National park, with equal parts humour and mystery, and it offers dialogue choices that can shape the storyline. Sign us up for this digital nature walk.

Due: 9 February

 

10. Batman – A Telltale Games Series

Platforms: TBD

We’ll be honest: we don’t know much at all about Telltale’s plans for its Batman episodic game series, but if there are two pop culture forces that we trust on legacy alone, it’s Telltale and Batman.

The developer’s recent run with The Walking DeadThe Wolf Among Us, and Game of Thrones (among others) has been mostly sterling, and Batman’s mythos is ripe for a conversation-driven adventure game. This ought to be something special. Fingers crossed.

Due: TBD 2016

 

11. Mirror’s Edge Catalyst

Platforms: Xbox One, PS4, PC

Finally! EA and DICE’s under-appreciated first-person free running game is reborn on new hardware with a game that falls into the middle ground between a prequel and a full reboot.

While it maintains the dazzling style of the 2008 original and a similar focus on speedily sprinting across rooftops, Mirror’s Edge Catalyst introduces an open world full of obstacles to bound over, slide down, and vault across. And to really showcase Faith’s parkour talents, you can’t use guns anymore. Nice.

Due: 24 May

12. EVE: Valkyrie

Platforms: Oculus Rift, PlayStation VR

EVE: Valkyrie is the kind of game that can convince non-believers in the power of virtual reality – which is probably why it’s being bundled with the first-run Oculus Rift.

Unlike the vast, cutthroat MMO it’s spun off from, EVE: Valkyrie focuses solely on intense, outer space dogfights. Were it simply seen on your TV or monitor, it’d be a fun, but largely familiar experience. But in the VR cockpit, it’s damn near mind-blowing in the demos we’ve had, and we can’t wait to strap in for more.

Due: Q1 2016

13. Deus Ex: Mankind Divided

Platforms: Xbox One, PS4, PC

Beloved shooter Deus Ex got a smashing modern revival with 2011’s Human Revolution, and Square Enix is primed to release the follow-up almost exactly five years later.

Mankind Divided will explore a future in which natural humans rebel against their augmented counterparts, and lead Adam Jensen helps try to stop the anti-augmented terrorist attacks. Expect all manner of cool new upgrades and gadgets for this techno-stealth-action-thriller.

Due: 23 August

14. Paragon

Platforms: PC, PlayStation 4

Paragon is Epic Games’ attempt to inject a bit more active participation into the classic MOBA (multiplayer online battle arena) framework, delivering the kind of intensity we’re used to from its classic shooters.

It’s a 5-on-5 team-based battle with an array of character options, but instead of an isometric viewpoint, you’re right there in the action with a third-person camera. It’ll debut in paid Early Access in spring, with an open beta in the summer.

Due: Spring 2016 (Early Access)

15. Job Simulator

Platforms: Oculus Rift, PlayStation VR, HTC Vive

You couldn’t come up with a more boring title than Job Simulator, but that’s the joke: it’s not nearly as mundane as you might imagine. In fact, this hilarious-looking VR game is set in the year 2050, when the robots who ultimately replace human workers try to learn about dull, 9-to-5 cubicle gigs.

While not the game you’d expect to be wowed by in VR (see EVE: Valkyrie above), it could really show the value of the medium for “experiential” games of all sorts.

Due: TBD 2016

 

16. Street Fighter V

Platforms: PlayStation 4, PC

Street Fighter V looks a fair bit like Street Fighter IV, but also has returning elements from Street Fighter III – and if you don’t know why any of that is important, just know that it’s pretty certain to be another great fighting game.

It has a pared-down cast punctuated by a few newcomers, along with cross-platform online play and some new-gen graphical punch, and the series’ core entries have never disappointed.

Due: 16 February

17. The Witness

Platforms: PlayStation 4, PC

Like puzzles? Great: here’s a stunning island full of them. The Witness is the game that Braid creator Jonathan Blow has poured all of his indie money into, and it’s a stunning experience, dropping you into the middle of a vibrant setting that’s just loaded to the brim with brain-teasers.

Good thing the environments are so calm and pleasing, because we have a feeling these puzzles are going to drive us batty (in a good way).

Due: 26 January

18. Dreams

Platform: PlayStation 4

Media Molecule made the first two LittleBigPlanet games and then Tearaway, so as far as we’re concerned, they have a magic touch. And from what we’ve seen of Dreams, that’s very real indeed.

Like the LBP games, Dreams puts a big focus on creation, letting you paint wildly imaginative worlds using your controller. It has a mesmerising look to it, and seemingly plenty of flexibility to what you can generate. We’re already charmed from the trailer alone.

Due: TBD 2016

19. Far Cry Primal

Platform: Xbox One, PS4, PC

Ubisoft’s Far Cry franchise is one of our favourite open-world offerings of the last few years, but Primal is going old-school – back to the Stone Age, actually.

It’s a big shake-up from the modern entries, but the first-person action should stay plenty compelling in that new era. You’ll be able to recruit beasts to follow you around the savage wilderness, plus the lack of guns should make the combat feel all the more visceral, desperate, and memorable.

Due: 23 February (PC: March)

20. RIGS Mechanized Combat League

Platform: PlayStation VR

Sony has a wealth of existing franchises to bring into virtual reality, but RIGS Mechanized Combat League might be the one to really bring PlayStation VR to the masses.

This original effort is a mech brawler that you’ll experience in first-person using the VR headset, and it looks like immersive, aggressive fun. As we said after a hands-on, this game won’t only sell the PlayStation VR to existing PS4 owners, but also the PS4 itself to anyone who doesn’t already have it.

Due: TBD 2016

 

21. Unravel

Platform: Xbox One, PS4, PC

Yarny is the new Sackboy, as far as we can tell, and this fabric-made hero arrives in a rather captivating-looking quest out of Electronic Arts.

Unravel is a side-scrolling affair through realistic-looking environments, with the yarn-man using his body to solve puzzles and swing across gaps, plus it has a very affecting, wordless storyline beneath about reconnecting a separated family’s memories. Should be an emotional one!

Due: 9 February

22. Dark Souls III

Platform: PS4, PC, Xbox One

Who knew that such a brutally tough game would be such a sensational hit? Dark Souls continues its reign among hardcore gamers with this trilogy-maker, which promises to make some small tweaks for accessibility while still offering the high-end challenge for experts.

It looks fantastic on the new consoles, and the bosses we’ve faced so far in preview turns have really impressed us with their creative designs. Sign us up for more delightful misery!

Due: 12 April

23. Overwatch

Platform: PC, Xbox One, PS4

Blizzard, the beloved studio known for ponderous real-time strategy affairs and (now) a staggeringly popular card game, is making one of the craziest-looking competitive shooters we’ve ever seen.

Compared to the dark and dour look of most genre leaders, Overwatch is a blast of fresh air, with a wild array of anime-esque heroes featuring distinctive weapons and abilities. It looks like an amped-up Team Fortress 2, which sounds like a very good thing to us.

Due: Spring 2016

24. Horizon: Zero Dawn

Platform: PlayStation 4

Killzone was always a solid shooter series, but rarely stood out in a crowded genre. Fortunately, Guerilla’s new game has immediate appeal, offering a vision of a de-technologised future in which a bow-and-arrow wielding huntress battles against weird robotic animals.

Horizon: Zero Dawn‘s open setting looks fabulous and should provide a compelling world like The Witcher III‘s, albeit with a very compelling original premise driving the action/role-playing blend.

Due: TBD 2016

25. Battleborn

Platform: PS4, Xbox One, PC

No, it’s not a new Borderlands, but Gearbox’s new IP looks to have the same kind of brash energy wrapped up in a new kind of package.

Battleborn is a first-person shooter fused with a League Of Legends-like MOBA, and it has a delightful cartoonish energy that resonates from the 25 diverse heroes through to the colourful locales. The story mode offers solo and co-op play alike, plus the competitive multiplayer options should be a blast.

Due: 3 May

 

26. Final Fantasy XV

Platform: PS4, Xbox One

After the underwhelming Final Fantasy XIII and the rough start the online-only Final Fantasy XIV had, it’s high time for the once-legendary RPG series to have a big win.

And so far, Final Fantasy XV looks like it’s up to the task. It’s big and beautifully rendered, of course, with an intriguing story about warring nations and powerful beings, plus it has cool dudes who go on a road trip together. So long as the lengthy quest isn’t a grinding slog, it could be something special.

Due: TBD 2016

27. Dishonored 2

Platform: PC, PS4, Xbox One

One of the last generation’s finest stealth-action experiences is back next year in Arkane’s sequel, which delivers a second playable lead – Emily Kaldwin in addition to Corvo Attano – and it’s still possible to complete the game without taking a life.

We haven’t seen too much of this one just yet, but the debut was spectacular, and we can’t wait to see more. And if you missed the first Dishonored, it was recently remastered for PS4 and Xbox One.

Due: Q2 2016

28. Edge of Nowhere

Platform: Oculus Rift

Edge of Nowhere is the first VR game from Ratchet & Clank and Resistance maker Insomniac, and at first blush, it sort of looks like a generic Uncharted. Actually strap on the Oculus Rift, however, and it’s a spellbinding experience.

Danger scenes are framed perfectly from your immersed third-person view, plus there’s an incredible sense of depth to the world that’s used to staggering effect. It’s one of the first “wow” games on the Rift.

Due: TBD 2016

29. Doom

Platform: PC, PS4, Xbox One

Last we saw Doom in 2004, it had become darker and moodier – to great effect, too. But now id Software is creating a modern Doom in the image of the old-school originals, which means it’s super fast, horrifically violent, and should be a total blast in the process.

If you’re tired of cover-based shooters or those with frequent cinematic asides, this blast of badass action should be a welcome return from an all-time classic.

Due: TBD 2016

30. Gears of War 4

Platform: Xbox One

Gears of War is your Xbox destination for big, brash action, but Gears of War 4 – the first new entry on Xbox One, and first from new developer The Coalition – apparently aims to take things down a notch.

Last year’s E3 demo was dark and eerie, much unlike what we saw in Gears of War 3 a few years back, but it’s a potentially promising twist and return to the approach of Epic’s original hit. Here’s hoping it’s the right move for Microsoft.

Due: Holiday 2016

 

Top 10 Most Expected Movies Of 2016

If you’re a movie buff, you’ve probably already formulated some sort of schedule for which movies you want to see this year, but 2016 is looking pretty exciting too! Whether you’re looking to take your kids to see something fun and family-oriented, seeking out a tear-jerker, or trying to scare the crud out of yourself and your date, 2016 is shaping up to be an awesome year for the box office. Let’s take a look at ten of the most anticipated films coming to theaters next year.

Gambit

Marvel Studios has confirmed that a Gambit spinoff is coming out next year 2016.

It get’s even better — the movie will star none other than Channing Tatum! Now we’re sure movie theaters will be populated by both men and women come opening premiere.

Alice in Wonderland: Through The Looking Glass

Big stars Johnny Depp & Helena Bonham Carter are set to reprise their roles as the Mad Hatter & Queen of Hearts in Alice in Wonderland: Through The Looking Glass. This is the second installment of the Alice in Wonderland series by Disney.

The Purge 3

‘The Purge’ horror film franchise has enjoyed relative box office success in its first two movies, so the director James DeMonaco has come back to produce a third film.

The third installment of The Purge franchise, the plot in the movie actually takes place before the events of the first and second movie. Not much is still known about the plot but we’ll expect it will give us a different kind of scare this time.

Ghostbusters

A Ghostbusters reboot was announced in early 2015 which garnered mixed opinions from movie buffs and critics. Mostly because the reboot will have an all-female roster! Nonetheless, it is exciting to see a different take of the classic. The all-female cast include: Bridesmaids stars Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Wig, and SNL breakouts Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones. Paul Fieg is set to direct the movie.

Inferno

Inferno is the fourth of Dan Brown’s novels, just as popular as Dan Brown’s other bestselling novels (Angels and Demons and The Da Vinci Code).

In Inferno, a man wakes up in an Italy hospital with amnesia. He later finds out that there are people out there trying to get rid of him. Typical of Dan Brown’s books, it is a plot filled with action, suspense and thrill.

Suicide Squad

Comic Con fan boys are rejoicing around the world when DC reveals a ‘Suicide Squad‘ movie is set to come out later next year.

Suicide Squad is a spinoff featuring the super villains in the superhero universe such as the Joker, his paramour Harley Quinn, Lex Luther and more.

It is rumored that it will have an all star cast including Will Smith, Cara de Levigne, Margot Robbie and Jared Leto. We can’t be more excitied!

Finding Dory

You’re never too old to enjoy the Disney and Pixar classic ‘Finding Nemo‘. One can’t help squeal with delight upon the news of a sequel entitled ‘Finding Dory‘. We can’t wait to see our beloved characters Nemo, Marlin, Nigel and Dory once again!

It’s bound to have an awesome voice over cast too, so take your kids to see this one! They’ll love it.

The BFG

Steven Spielberg is set to direct a classic Roald Dahl book entitled The BFG. The story revolves one Big Friendly Giant, who befriends a little child named Sophie. Unlike other giants in Giant Country, the BFG is a friendly one who doesn’t like to eat children. Spielberg is perfect for bringing the magic and drama from the beloved book and into the 2016 film!

Sausage Party

Seth Rogen is coming up with an adult humor animated film starring himself and a star-studded cast like James Franco, Michael Cera, etc.

The story revolves around a sausage looking for some meaning in life at a grocery store. Given the offbeat cast it’s going to be a funny film specifically for mature audiences.

Warcraft

The biggest game in history is now coming to the big screen. We can’t wait to see humans and orcs fight against each other (or for each other, we’re not entirely sure yet) set in the stunning and epic WoW landscapes.
