After all of the excitement of the recent Academy Awards, many movie fans will already be placing their bets on what will be the biggest movie of 2016. So far we’ve seen the likes of Deadpool becoming a huge smash at the box office, so what other films look to be in the running of being top of the yearly movie charts?
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
A quick look at the biggest grossing movies of all-time quickly reveals that comic-book adaptations are gaining a rapid hold of the box office. And when Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice lands on our cinema screens on 25 March, it’s widely expected to give last year’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens a good run for its money as it will be the first time that these epic comic-book icons have ever appeared on the same screen.
Another comic-book big hitter is X-Men whose cinematic output always does well at the box office. The X-Men: Apocalypse blockbuster will be the last in the series to see Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique, and her name will definitely increase the movie’s chance of box office glory. The speculation over movie successes has become something of a betting institution, and you may have heard of Betway who do specials on film box office successes alongside their regular sporting tips, and as such, they can provide a good indication as to the cinematic hits to come.
However, it’s not just Marvel and DC Comics who’ll be expected to do well in 2016. As the hugely-anticipated all-female revamp of Ghostbusters has become something of a sensation across the internet. With a deeply intriguing Ghostbusters trailer that’s swiftly generated over 60 million views, it’s hoped that this supernatural comedy caper could provide a good outside bet for hitting it big when it comes to multiplexes across the world in July.
And finally, this month sees Disney making another bid to try and top their previous animated successes when Zootopia brings an entire world of animals to life with all of the predicted cute-and-cuddly charms. With a cast as wide-ranging as Shakira, Idris Elba and Jason Bateman providing voices for an array of weird and wonderful beasts, it’s thought that this movie is one of the surefire betting favourites for mainstream movie success in 2016.
