With 2015 behind us, it’s time to explore the slate of exciting movies opening in theaters over the next 12 months – some that we’ve waited a very long time for and can’t wait to see!
Read on to find out what 25 movies Screen Rant is anticipating most in 2016 – a list narrowed down and voted upon by a committee of Screen Rant writers and editors.
This list is constructed from the personal interests of our editorial staff and what we know about the projects at the time of publication (some for instance, do not have a trailer yet let alone an official title). It represents movies we’re excited to see and learn more about and not movies we believe will be the best. We have a different list for that. Without further ado, let’s begin our countdown and be sure to share your own personal picks in the comments!

Release Date: May 20, 2016
Director: Nicholas Stoller
Cast: Zac Efron, Seth Rogen, Rose Byrne, Dave Franco, Chloë Grace Moretz, Selena Gomez, Ike Barinholtz

Neighbors was a surprise hit of 2014, mixing physical and over-the-top comedy with heart and proving Zac Efron really can be a comedy star. Efron re-teams with Seth Rogen, Rose Byrne, Dave Franco, and director Nicholas Stoller for the sequel which sees the our protagonists from the first movie team-up to battle sorority sisters who move in to their neighboring house.
