6 Upcoming Films To Put On Your Watch List

There’s an influx of films coming our way, and there’s something for everyone. Powerful women like Emma Watson and Jessica Chastain are coming out swinging with their own films as Wonder Woman takes over the superhero scene.

Of course there are rippling abs and other eye candy to be found in Baywatch as well as Zac Efron and The Rock strut around. Check out the full list below.

Wonder Woman

It’s about time we get to see a DC Comics movie based solely on a kickass, strong woman. Keeping the Wonder Women ethos alive, Patty Jenkins, director of the film, told Entertainment Weekly she wants: “Wonder Woman to be hot as hell, fight badass and look great at the same time.” As with most superhero movies, the protagonist spends most of her time saving the world, this time from the war.

Zookeeper’s Wife

This incredibly heartfelt war drama is going to leave you reaching for the tissues in a big way. Based on the nonfiction book of the same name, the film recounts the story of a couple (Jessica Chastain and Johan Heldenbergh) who are keepers of the Warsaw Zoo, and who helped save hundreds of Jews and animals during the German occupation of Poland. This movie promises to be an inspirational tale of courage and bravery.


Zac Efron and Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson sporting red board shorts and abs on abs… there isn’t much more that needs to be said to get you to the cinema. This action-comedy is based on two mismatched lifeguards (Efron and Johnson), who must put aside their differences to stop a criminal plot. It’s a little bit cheesy, in the same vein as Pamela Anderson’s runs along the beach in the original TV show. With Identity Thief’s Seth Gordon at the helm directing, the film is bound to be one that gives you a good, lighthearted laugh.

The Circle

Dreams come true as Emma Watson and Tom Hanks join forces in this science fiction drama. Watson’s character seizes the opportunity of a lifetime to work at the world’s most powerful technology and social media company. She joins a groundbreaking experiment that pushes the boundaries of privacy, ethics and personal freedom. Watson’s films always rate well in our hearts, so we are excited to catch this film.

The House

If there was an actor and an actress we would put together for a hilarious comedy, it would have to be Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler. Andrew J. Cohen – the man behind Neighbors, Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates and The 40-Year-Old Virgin – beat us to it. Ferrell and Poehler star as a husband and wife who convince their friends to create an illegal casino in their basement after they spend their daughter’s college fund. Hilarity will ensue.

My Cousin Rachel

Rachel Weisz and Sam Claflin star in this mystery-romance that promises to be intriguing and beguiling. A young Englishman (Claflin) plots his revenge against his mysterious cousin (Weisz), who he believes murdered his guardian. Complication arises when he starts to fall for her charms. This film is based on a book of the same name, published in 1951, and first adapted in 1952 with Olivia de Havilland and Richard Burton.
