We're just two months into 2016, with 305 days left in the calendar year, which also means there are plenty of movies coming out in the 10 months ahead. With that in mind, and with today (Feb. 29) being Leap Day, we've compiled a list of 29 movies by release date that we're awaiting with great anticipation in 2016.
They span sci-fi, horror and fantasy, and while we don't expect every one of them to be mind-blowing (and in fact some of them might turn out just terrible), each of these made the list for a reason, whether it's the next chapter in a popular saga, the latest entry from a well-respected filmmaker or a reboot of a franchise left for dead -- or even, imagine this, an entirely new and original outing in its genre.
So scan the list below and see how our choices line up with yours. There may be a few missing. After all, it's going to be a busy year for genre fans, even with an extra day.
