This time last year we published our list of ‘Top 5 Blockbuster Movies for 2015’. In our list was; Avengers age of Ultron, Jurassic World, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2, Antman and Star Wars VII – the Force Awakens.
And I think we can agree, even if they weren’t your cup of tea, these films were massive epics worthy of their place in our top 5! (Even Antman, the riskiest of the Marvel studios releases so far but it hit the mark for charm and humour!)
So, the question is – Can 2016 hope to compete??
Well. It’s certainly not going out without a fight! Check out Pulp’s 2016 Top 5 Blockbusters as see what cinematic genius is heading your way!
5. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
Part of the Justice League Film Series, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was released in the UK on the 25th of March 2016 and follows on from Superman’s huge battle with Zod. However, after trashing Metropolis in the process Bruce Wayne decides Superman is too big a risk to humanity to be left unchallenged.
There’s mixed reviews on story and execution of this blockbuster but we feel if you go in with an open mind you’ll love the super hero smash up and epic battle scenes.

4. X-Men: Apocalypse
This massive addition to the X-Men series leads on after the huge hit of X-Men: Days of Future Past. The story follows Magneto and other mutants as they meet an old power set on creating a new world order. But will Professor X and his young team be able to unite and defeat this seemingly invincible nemesis in time? We just don’t know!
The young cast is back for this superhero extravaganza including; James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender and Jennifer Lawrence, with all the promise of epic battles, complicated relationship dynamics and new fascinating mutant genes. We can’t wait to see how this new film brings us closer to understanding the ever twisting universe!

3. Captain America: Civil War
The next slice of the Marvel universe hit the big screen 29th April and saw a rip in the delicate band of friendship between our beloved Avenger team! Sticking to the basic plot to avoid too many spoilers here – We have Iron Man and Captain America, they have a difference in opinion on how the Avengers should operate and be run… queue massive feud!
We think this will be an important part of the Avengers series as it seems to seriously develop some character relationships and may be preparing us for films to come…

2. Suicide Squad
When a secret government agency needs a task force of highly skilled people to help protect the world, who do they turn to? Imprisoned Super villains of course!
Already set to be one of the biggest epics of the year Suicide Squad is gathering interest with wicked trailers and it’s awesome cast list: Jared Leto, Ben Affleck, Will Smith and Margot Robbie just to name a few!
From what we’ve seen in the trailers so far this film is going to be massive action and crime galore with an awesome slice of sass and a killer sound track! We can’t wait!
Get your hands on the Suicide Squad tees and merch before it makes a break for it!
We do… dobedo dobedo… love Deadpool! Seriously, Ryan Reynolds nailed this – HARD.
Wade Wilson is an ex special forces operative who now works as a mercenary. Just when you think things are going good, everything starts going downhill. Tortured and disfigured Wade is transformed into Deadpool, with his awesome healing powers and twist sense of humour. Queue chaos!
This film is the funniest thing we’ve seen in a long time, it pretty much makes up for the awful ‘Deadpool’ appearance in Wolverine and it makes so many jokes about its own franchise and some of the current massive plot holes that it almost takes away some of our frustrations about them!

And even though it’s not technically the next in the series we didn’t feel like we could leave it out so as an added extra…
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story
“Rebels set out on a mission to steal the plans for the Death Star.” (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3748528/) And that’s about all we know so far! After the massive build up and suspense of Star Wars: The Force Awakens this addition to the series is apparently set between Episode III: Revenge of the Sith and Episode IV: A New Hope. It will be following the resistance fighters as they try and steal the Death Star plans from the Empire.
Now the franchises is back and has rekindled our love of the series we can’t wait to see what fantastic adventures are in store!
