Film list: Movies coming out in 2015/16 (that I wish were out already)

Hello and welcome to my newest wizard post! Today I'm going to be sharing some films that I just can't wait for. THEY NEED TO COME! But unfortunately they haven't been released yet... so I just watch the trailers - over and over. So without further a do, let's jump into the list of movies I wish would be in theatres already. 

Trailers will be included for all of you lazy people out there like me, so that you don't have to head over to YouTube (and let's face it: once you watch one trailer, you usually start binge watching random trailers - or is that just me?!)


1.) Suicide Squad


This is definitely the movie I'm most excited about. I've always been a fan of DC in general, but the trailer just did it for me. Justice isn't always black and white and DC shows that in the trailer. There is a very thin line between justice and crime. The Suicide Squad basically does the governments dirt work, killing terrorists and other bad guys. Things, that they don't want the public to know. 

It took me some time to figure out the timeline - it takes place  before Batman vs. Superman, so right in the middle of Man of Steele and BvS. According to Empire Magazine, it was Batman who put the entire Suicide Squad into "prison". 

Suicide Squad will premiere August 5 2016, so we will have to wait for a while until we get to see the real thing.
What do you think about Jared Leto as Joker?


"You know what they say about the crazy ones..."




2.) The Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 2


I would have been crazy not to include Mockingjay Part 2 into this list. Though I am sad that the franchise is ending *cry*, I will watch it like ripping off a bandage - Quick and fast (but not without pain)

For all of you who read the books, don't expect to know everything that's going on in the movie. Because judging from the trailer, they've made quite a few changes. 

Check out the first clip of Mockingjay Part 2 here!
The Hunger Games Mockingjay Part to will come to theatres on November 20th. 


"Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the 76th Hunger Games"




3.) Deadpool





FINALLY another R rated superhero movie. Ryan Reynolds looks like he does a great job acting in the movie, judging by the trailer (anything of his looks good in comparison to Green Lantern). I love how he threw in a joke about Green Lantern (in the trailer below)

Overall I just can't wait for this new Marvel film to come into theatres. It's going to be a blast.
"Deadpool" first hits theatres on February 12, 2016.

And yes, I put the Red band trailer in this post (obviously)



"Daddy needs to express some rage"



4.) Demolition

After Nightcrawler and Southpaw, everyone knows Jake Gyllenhaal. That recognition is well deserved. In my opinion, he's probably one of the best actors out there. That alone would make me go and see his new film "Demolition". But it looks really good. I wouldn't be surprised if Gyllenhaal wins an Oscar soon. 

The release date of "Demolition" is set to April 6, 2016.



5.) Our Brand Is Crisis

I know what you're thinking. "That's such a bad name for a movie!" I agree. But it peeked my interest and it looks like a great drama. And look at the cast - I couldn't have wished for a better mix of great actors. 

"Our Brand Is Crisis" is in theatres October 30th. 




6.) Race


The trailer hasn't been out for long and I feel like people don't even know this exists. The film is about the track and field star Jesse Owens, who won four gold medals at the 1936 Berlin Olympic Games. 

I was sceptical at first because Jason Sudeikis is in this movie and I'm not overwhelmed by his acting skills. Seeing him in a serious film is definitely different and one of the reasons I'm not going to let the casting stop me from checking out this movie. 

"Race" comes to theatres February 19, 2016.

"Out there there ain't no black and white, there's only fast and slow"



7.) Carol


This might be the film that wins Cate Blanchett a third Oscar. When I watch the trailer it feels like so much more than a good old romance. I read the book by Patricia Highsmith and fell in love with the story. If you are looking for some reading material, check out the book. I highly recommend it.

Back to the film - I recommend that too, without having seen it yet. Alone by the emotions you get hit with during the trailer, I can assure you - this movie is going to be epic. Oh, and who doesn't love Rooney Mara?

Carol is coming to movie theatres quite soon, November 27th to be exact.


"There are no accidents and everything comes full circle"



I think "Carol" is the perfect way to end this list. I hope you enjoyed reading and maybe a few of you even discovered some films you want to watch. Let me know if there are different movies that you are excited for! Until next time people.

iZOMBIE - the "brainhunt" starts tomorrow!


With the new season come fresh brains. This time around the stakes have changed...
In this post I will focus on spoilers for the upcoming season (and I'll try to contain my utter excitement - Season 2 is nearly here!). *Trailer included*


Rumour mill & spoilers


  • New character alert!
Former basketball star Rick Fox takes on the role of a retired basketball star named Calvin Owens. Liv and Clive first meet him at the wake of his deceased college friend's wake. His buddy, Harry Cole, a degenerate gambler, was murdered right in front of Clive on the King Country Courthouse steps. Calvin is one of the last people to see Harry alive. 


  • Blaine's new business
In the first episode, the antihero's and recently cured zombie's new business venture will be revealed. With all the evil, unremorseful and unapologetically hilarious behaviour, we will certainly get to see a new side to the power-hungry newly turned (back) human. Apparently, Liv also pays Blaine a surprise visit. (Revenge? Confrontation? A fight?)


  • Family problems
After turning Major into a zombie in order to save his life, only to turn him back by using the antidote, things are tense between Liv and her ex - fiancĂ©. It has also been said, that both of them will be dating different people.
Speaking about saving someone's life - Liv's mother is trying to find an explanation for why Liv refused to donate blood to her brother. 


  • Major's mission
According to executive producer Rob Thomas, Major has a different mission in the forthcoming season that is "much bigger". His quest will be revealed in the first episode.


  • The cure
This season Dr. Ravi is looking for some of his tainted Utopium from the boat party, in order to produce more of the cure. This may cause some problems.
Ravi also suspects that Major might be experiencing a side affect of the cure.

  • The Meat Cute
Clive will be trying to find out what happened in the headquarters of Blaine's brainy business. 

  • Daddy's home!
We will get to meet Liv's dad for the first time.


"Grumpy Old Liv" (2x01)

Liv consumes the brains of a cantankerous, grumpy and racist old man to help solve the mystery of his death. When the police receives an anonymous tip, they track the caller and Liv and Clive stop by the residence of the caller, a man named Byron Thistlewaite. 


Let me know if you're excited for Season 2 by taking part in the survey! (above)
