Michael Fassbender, Cate Blanchett, Christian Bale, Rooney Mara and Ryan Gosling are all ostensible to be in a cast, nonetheless Malick can be cruel in slicing whole characters from his final edit.

One of a year’s oddest propositions sees a lapse of Son of Rambow’s Garth Jennings who leads this charcterised low-pitched with Scarlett Johansson voicing a “punk-rock porcupine”, Matthew McConaughey as a “dapper koala” and Reese Witherspoon behind an “overtaxed pig mother”.

18) Story of Your Life
After Prisoners, Enemy and Sicario, Denis Villeneuve has avoided a mostly heavy transition from acclaimed foreign-language executive to successful Hollywood player.

31) Loving

Jeff Nichols (Mud) has sensitively spin one of Hollywood’s some-more poignant auteurs, and here he is holding on a big, real-life subject. In 1959, Mildred and Richard Loving were convicted of interracial matrimony in a Virginia justice and went all a approach to a autarchic justice to get a statute overturned. Ruth Negga plays Mildred, and Joel Edgerton is Richard, while Nichol’s ever-present co-operator Michael Shannon turns adult as Grey Villet, a Life photographer who lonesome a story and helped spin it into a pivotal exam of polite rights.

32) LBJ
Every trainer contingency get their movie, and here is one of those formerly overlooked, notwithstanding carrying a bit partial in any comment of a Kennedy assassination. Lyndon Baines Johnson competence have a hostile reputation, nonetheless his record on polite rights, finale misery and gun control creates his presidency a high H2O symbol in US liberalism. Interest in him cinematically seems to have been irritated by his description in Selma as a tough-nosed, savvy domestic operator, and this biopic – destined by Rob Reiner with Woody Harrelson as a masculine himself, with a book plucked from a 2014 Black List – looks as if it will cover informed ground, starting with LBJ’s sudden climb to a presidency and battles over polite rights and Vietnam.

33) The Real Wound
Abdellatif Kechiche won a Palme d’Or in 2013 with Blue Is a Warmest Colour, an ardent investigate of same-sex coming-of-age. This time, a theme is not dissimilar, nonetheless it’s about a teenage child on a surveillance for girls. It’s blending from a novel by François Bégaudeau, who is maybe best famous for essay and starring in another Palme winner, The Class, in 2008; if zero else, The Real Wound has pedigree. It’s also got Gérard Depardieu, on something of a hurl after Welcome to New York and The Valley of Love, so unequivocally value looking out for.

34) Zootopia

After Pixar expelled both Inside Out and The Good Dinosaur this year, sister studio Walt Disney Animation has dual films lined adult for 2016. South Pacific chronicle Moana is due in November, nonetheless progressing in a year will come this lissome sounding animal-noir tale, desirous apparently by Disney’s now rather lost 1973 animation Robin Hood. Named after a city filled with animals where it all goes down, Zootopia revolves around a bunny rabbit patrolman Judy Hopps (Ginnifer Goodwin), who teams adult with dangerous fraud artist fox Nick Wilde (Jason Bateman) to lane down a blank otter.

35) Assassin’s Creed
Macbeth executive Justin Kurzel reunites with his stars Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard for this adaptation/extension of the blockbusting video game, that concerns itself with a descendants of a tip multitude (The Assassins) who over a centuries contingency confront those of another (The Knights Templar). Fassbender plays Callum Lynch, a impression combined generally for a film, which, like a game, is partial of a array of interlocking stories set in a incomparable diversion universe. There’s no word nonetheless on possibly he spends a whole time erratic around a mistake Gothic Scottish landscape with a scars of dispute still manifest on his flesh. Still, diversion producers Ubisoft merit acclamation for going down what looks like a arthouse lane for their film.

36) Money Monster
Jodie Foster’s final directorial effort, The Beaver, was a not-likely-to-be-popular bauble entirely swamped by a unpleasantness surrounding a streamer man, Mel Gibson, in a run-up to a recover in 2011. Now she’s behind for more, however, and has expel another heavyweight lead actor – George Clooney – in a executive role. Clooney plays one of those financial recommendation guys who dispenses batch tips on his TV show; a discontented viewer, played by 71’s Jack O’Connell, turns adult and binds him warrant after losing money. Julia Roberts is in there, too, personification a show’s producer.

37) A Cure for Wellness
Gore Verbinski is best famous as a purveyor of gaseous family entertainments, from Mouse Hunt to Pirates of a Caribbean, nonetheless he also has a good line in horror: to wit, a US reconstitute of a Japanese classical Ring. A Cure for Wellness sees him dive behind into a fear pool, with Dane DeHaan personification a immature worker attempting to extricate his trainer from a sinister “wellness” sauna run by Jason Isaacs, who has dishonourable designs on his patients, who embody Mia Goth. With Verbinski’s lane record for doing a large canvas, this is certain to be value a look.

38) Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

It’s taken them years, nonetheless finally DC Comics are throwing adult with a Marvel’s interlinked-stories judgment as practical to cinema. This film, creatively recognised as a supplement to a forehead-kneading Man of Steel, sees a Caped Crusader (Ben Affleck) make his approach to Superman’s Metropolis, there to confront a phone-box-bothering superhero (Henry Cavill) who he suspects competence wreak disharmony if left unchecked. The trailers make it demeanour flattering fun (as they would) and it all sets adult destiny movies, such as a prolonged pined for Wonder Woman, whose lead actor Gal Gadot is removing a distinguished cameo here.

39) Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk
Ang Lee has been still given winning a best executive Oscar for Life of Pi in 2013, so it’s glorious news that a soft-spoken Taiwanese-American master is back. He’s left for another literary adaptation, of Ben Fountain’s 2012 novel about an Iraq fight maestro who is sent behind to a US on a promotional “victory” tour, culminating in an coming during a Dallas Cowboys’ Thanksgiving-day game. The book is by Slumdog’s Simon Beaufoy, and visitor Joe Alwyn (a Bristol University graduate) is personification Billy. Possibly time to start practising those Oscar speeches.

40) The Unknown Girl
A new Dardenne brothers film is always an eventuality on a Euro arthouse circuit, with a Cannes berth all nonetheless guaranteed for a two-time Palme d’Or winners and their code of intense, low-key naturalism. Adèle Haenel plays a GP who takes it on herself to brand a eponymous fille inconnue, a lady who dies after being denied medical care. Having achieved their biggest strike to date with a Marion Cotillard-starring Two Days One Night, a brothers seem to be returning to a somewhat reduction box-office-friendly transport of their progressing work.

41) Star Wars: Rogue One

You’re prepared for another, right? Barely a year after a seismic shake of JJ Abrams’s authorization reboot, there are nonetheless some-more wars on a way. Gareth Edwards’ spin-off stars Felicity Jones, Diego Luna and Ben Mendelsohn. Set before a bizarre trilogy, we’ll be following a garland of insurgency fighters plotting to take skeleton to a Death Star. Let a hype be your guide.

42) The Free State of Jones
The pretension comes from a little outpost in Jones county, Mississippi, where – according to fable – a combine infantryman called Newton Knight set adult a little mixed-race village in a center of a polite war. Knight, a combine army deserter, was in a common-law matrimony with a former slave. He led a rebellion conflicting a confederacy, nonetheless possibly he did this for eminent reasons is still debated. And who will play this implicitly patchwork man? The charismatic southerner with a present for care and a bent for roguishness? Matthew McConaughey? Alright alright alright.

43) Florence Foster Jenkins

New York socialite Florence Foster Jenkins finished a vital as an show singer, notwithstanding not sounding like one. She had no pitch, stroke nor tinge nonetheless became a renouned oddity for punters penetrating to see her tainted adult an aria. Jenkins, who remained assured of her possess talent, was a X-Factor first-rounder of her day, origination certain that her performances were reviewed usually by her friends or herself. She played one her final shows in 1944 in – due to open petition – Carnegie Hall. In Stephen Frears’ biopic, she’ll be played by Meryl Streep, with Hugh Grant and Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation star Rebecca Ferguson in support.

44) Nine Lives
Don’t ask meow Kevin Spacey got concerned with this one. Barry Sonnenfeld’s comedy will have him play a masculine trapped in a physique of a cat. Plot sum are scarce, nonetheless Jennifer Garner and Christopher Walken have taken roles, hopefully not as Scratching Post and Sand Pit. As to that multiply of cat Kevin will inhabit? The film-makers haven’t finished their felines known.

45) The Founder
Biopic of Roy Kroc, a businessman who wrested McDonalds divided from a founders – brothers Mac and Dick McDonald – and set a beef and potatoes quick food corner on a approach to ubiquitousness. Written in a impression of The Social Network by The Wrestler scriptwriter Robert Siegel, it stars Michael Keaton as Kroc and is destined by John Lee Hancock (The Blind Side, Saving Mr Banks). If it can stay comfortable adequate to seem appetising to Oscar electorate come 2017, Keaton will have pulled off a conspicuous conspicuous run: he was a tie of awards deteriorate with Birdman final year and is expected to be popping adult again with Spotlight this time. The Founder would make for a juicy triple.

46) Warcraft

Blizzard Entertainment’s video diversion phenomenon gets a film off-shoot pleasantness of Moon and Source Code executive Duncan Jones. Orcs and humans will clash, scores of grunts will tumble in a strong dispute between a dual races for control of a visionary universe of Azeroth and gamers will knowledge dizzying enjoyment as their passion for a film’s click-crazy start is channeled by someone who shares their love. Along with a Assassin’s Creed (see No 35), Warcraft could be a start of a transformation formerly unprecedented: game-based films that don’t confuse fans of both. No Gamer-style meta narrative, Duncan. Please.

47) Brothers Grimsby
A must-see forward of a recover of a worryingly cruddy trailer, Sacha Baron Cohen’s latest competence be still value a watch for all a wrong reasons. He plays Norman “Nobby” Grimsby, a pub schlub and football lummox whose hunt for his long-lost hermit ends disastrously after he fouls adult his black ops-trained sibling’s assassination try and army them to go on a run. The film hurt a people of Grimsby by obsequious a city was full of inebriated dossers. Could annoy many some-more if a jokes don’t conduct to bound over a intensely low bar set by a trailer. Still, Baron Cohen’s frequency totally unfunny. Maybe a promo has a smarter bigger brother?

48) Finding Dory
Finding Nemo’s forgetful, true sidekick gets her spin-off. Convinced she remembers a family and where they competence be, Dory heads behind out into open H2O with Nemo and Marlin in her wake. All a bizarre expel are slinging in their hook, including Ellen Degeneres as Dory and Albert Brooks as Nemo’s chafing dad, Marlin. Plus, there’s room in a sea for Diane Keaton and Eugene Levy as Dory’s relatives and Idris Elba, in an as nonetheless unannounced role. Probably not a minnow.

49) Suicide Squad

We’ve finished dark, we’ve finished poppy, now let’s try naughty. Directed by David Ayer and formed on a DC comic about a squad of antiheroes co-opted by a US government, Suicide Squad competence be some-more raw, some-more infamous than your normal do-gooder superhero story. The expel list has some whack: Will Smith is a squad’s de facto personality as consultant marksman Deadshot, Margot Robbie is renouned Batman knave Harley Quinn, and Jared Leto will saunter around a hinterland as The Joker, a initial new big-screen take on a impression given Heath Ledger played him in a Dark Knight trilogy. Subtlety isn’t Ayer’s superpower. He won’t need it for element this wacky.

50) Passengers
Way out in space sits Jim (Chris Pratt), twiddling his thumbs after a relapse of his nap section has left him a usually newcomer watchful on a hulk space cruiser streamer for a universe that’s still 90 years away. Does he die alone? Or pull a symbol and arise adult beautiful, intelligent Aurora (Jennifer Lawrence)? It’s a elementary grounds nonetheless Sony’s sci-fi epic, destined by The Imitation Game’s Morten Tyldum, has cost an astronomical $150m. Of that, $20m goes to Lawrence, with $12m shuttled off to Pratt. That’s significant, given it was Sony auxiliary Columbia who were broke by a leaked news that Lawrence was paid a obtuse commission of a increase of American Hustle than her masculine co-stars. With Keanu Reeves, Michael Sheen and Laurence Fishburne also on board, Passengers is full of stars, nonetheless it’s still a large play for Sony.

51) The Limehouse Golem

Alan Rickman wades into a bloody disaster in a Victorian medieval blending from Peter Ackroyd’s novel Dan Leno and The Lighthouse Golem. A covetous killer’s on a lax in London’s easterly end. Their crimes are so iniquitous that a locals (Rickman, assimilated by Douglas Booth and Olivia Cooke) are assured a murders contingency be a work of a monstrous, fabulous beast, a Golem. Said to be identical to Se7en and The Woman in Black. Could be precious.

52) Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

JK Rowling’s initial screenplay – a Harry Potter spin-off – is escorted to a large shade by unchanging Hogwarts wrangler David Yates. Eddie Redmayne stars as Newt Scamander, a academician whose studies are difficult by a shun of a menage of enchanting creatures from his briefcase. Ezra Miller, Katherine Waterson and Colin Farrell are among those fasten Eddie on a hunt by 1920s New York.

53) Elvis and Nixon

Michael Shannon and Kevin Spacey ham-off in a distraction of a real-life meeting. Shannon will play a King, who’s assembly with a Commander-in-Chief was sparked by Elvis’s enterprise to stretch himself from a counter-culture he’d desirous and Nixon’s try to interest to teeny-boppers. Presley even went so distant as to offer his services as an clandestine representative to a FBI, nonetheless J Edgar Hoover never took him adult on it. The film, that is destined by Hateship, Loveship’s Liza Johnson, will play off a stupidity of it all.

54) The Accountant

Action-thriller in that Ben Affleck plays a financial whizz who’s also good during adding bullets to targets as a hitman for hire. This will be Affleck’s initial purpose given Gone Girl and a final before he becomes a Batman in Dawn of Justice (see 38). Affleck + Anna Kendrick + JK Simmons + John Lithgow + Jeffrey Tambor + Jon Bernthal + dodgy exchange on Wall Street = torpedo potential.

55) Personal Shopper
Kristen Stewart plays a conform servant operative a fringes of Paris couture, assisted by her penetrating superpowers. Personal Shopper is scripted by Olivier Assayas, who helped Stewart to Cesar win for her spin in Clouds of Sils Maria. A second partnership would seem like a good fit.

56) The Legend of Tarzan

More Margot Robbie, this time as Jane conflicting Alexander Skarsgård’s smalls-wearing Tarzan in David Yates’ take. The trailer (above) promises a low thriller set in a jungle that “consumes everything” and “preys on a weak”. Probably closer to Peter Jackson’s apery of King Kong than George of a Jungle.

57) Yoga Hosers

Premieres during Sundance soon. Kevin Smith takes behaving as good as directing duties in an journey spinning-off from Depp’s hammy cameo as a French-Canadian investigator Guy LaPointe in Smith’s comedy-horror Tusk. This one stars Depp’s daughter, Lily-Rose and Smith’s daughter, Harley, as a span of preference store office who’ll hook over retrograde for their adore of yoga, nonetheless – when Canada is invaded by hordes of wicked creatures – find themselves in an worried position.

58) Bad Neighbours 2

So sue us: we enjoyed a initial one. Zac Efron and Seth Rogen lapse as a once-warring neighbours, now joined conflicting a common foe: a brattish container of sorority sisters who’ve changed in subsequent door. The bizarre influenced adult good chemistry between Efron (as a hunky alpha-frat boy, Teddy) and Rogen (party-starved new father Mac). Rose Byrne and Dave Franco are returning, as is executive Nicholas Stoller.

59) Independence Day 2

“Today … we applaud … OUR INDEPENDENCE DAY!” etc etc etc. Some 20 years after Roland Emmerich blew adult a White House, he’s behind to mutilate some-more drop on mild humanity. That said, maybe a film won’t be so bad? The trailer (above) offers adult a doomy prophesy of visitor invasion, maybe improved matched to a times than a 90s original’s poppy spirit. And a expel is good – Liam Hemsworth, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Jeff Goldblum. Will Smith isn’t returning, nonetheless – given new form – that competence not be a catastrophe.

60) Bourne 5

Both Paul Greengrass and Matt Damon are behind after a Jeremy Renner side story, The Bourne Legacy, slumped. Damon will play a suggested super-spy, apparently OK now after a law about his strategy by a disobedient supervision caused a grandscale breakdown. Joining him in some kind of settle will be authorization unchanging Julia Stiles and newbie Alicia Vikander. Viggo Mortensen and Vincent Cassel will be on a other side of a dispute with some-more sides than Nandos.

61) Untitled Woody Allen

Yes, a dual given Blue Jasmine have been disappointing; as was American Ultra, Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart’s many new team-up. But we’re still holding out hope. Plot sum are – as ever with Allen projects – scarce, nonetheless Eisenberg and Stewart’s third film together will see them conduct a play set in New York’s Chinatown in a 1940s. Bruce Willis, Steve Carell and Blake Lively are among a actors ticking a ‘Worked with Woody’ box this time around.

62) Anthropoid
Czech soldiers murder notoriously heartless Nazi commander Reinhard Heydrich, one of a engineers of a Holocaust. Jamie Dornan and Cillian Murphy star as dual of a associated special operatives reserved with holding down a SS-Obergruppenführer who Hitler called “the masculine with a iron heart”. Directed by Sean Ellis, whose Metro Manila was a strike with critics in 2013.

63) Zoolander 2

Second assisting of Derek’n’Hansel, that is a good thing – even if Zoolander’s adoption by humourless fashionista forms wore out a acquire mat. This time around a author of Le Tigre, Blue Steel and Magnum is out of fashion, nonetheless in-demand as he’s a usually low tuber who can strew light on a squabble of luminary deaths related to his signature look. Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson walked a Valentino catwalk during Paris conform week final March. Having jumped a shark, can a span spin it into a good bit of clobber?

64) Midnight Special
Take Shelter executive Jeff Nichols is changing hook with his latest and aiming for a Close Encounters vibe with this intriguing drama. His second film of a year (his initial is regretful play Loving, featured during No 31) competence also be a dermatitis for him, revelation a story of a child with enchanting powers with a set of considerable special effects on hand.

65) A Quiet Passion
Terence Davies’ passion plan about elegant shut-in Emily Dickinson is a must. It’s usually this low on a list since it competence not indeed materialize in 2016.

66) Elle
Paul Verhoeven’s initial film in a decade sees him in “erotic and perverted” mode, nonetheless what that means in tie with a film about a businesswoman who is raped is anyone’s guess. Isabelle Huppert, as intrepid as ever, plays a lead.

67) The Nice Guys

A Chinatown-y ’tec thriller set in 70s LA ought to boyant everyone’s boat, generally with Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe pairing up, and Shane Black directing.

68) Genius
Highbrow theme matter – like a attribute between author Thomas Wolfe and his literary editor – doesn’t always meant good cinema, nonetheless leads Jude Law and Colin Firth ought to give it some welly.

69) The Standoff
A extraordinary set-up – dual people have to mount subsequent to any other for 3 days to win a automobile of their dreams – could go possibly approach in this teen comedy from a author of, ahem, A Cinderella Story.

70) American Pastoral
Philip Roth’s bizarre novel is an unarguable masterpiece, nonetheless as with Genius (see No 68) that’s no guarantee, cinematically. It’s also a directorial entrance of Ewan McGregor, that competence or competence not be a good thing.

71) Deepwater Horizon
Peter Berg’s directorial outlay has been sketchy (Hancock was fun, Battleship unequivocally wasn’t) nonetheless a book by a on-a-roll JC Chandor should assistance this oil brief thriller with Mark Wahlberg and Kurt Russell starring.

72) 13 Hours
