Paramount Announces Big 2016 with TRANSFORMERS 5, G.I. JOE 3, HANSEL & GRETEL 2, BEN-HUR, STAR TREK 3, and More

I’m currently dreading the summer onslaught of 2015, but it looks like there will be no rest for the wicked as 2016 is already setting up for more blockbuster mayhem.  Having Captain America 3 and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice set for the same release date was already an ill-omen (although I wouldn’t be surprised if one of them moves), and running down the scheduled list of 2016 movies is already nerve-wracking.

Paramount has now stepped into remind us that they have plenty of films set for 2016 as well.  Looking ahead to the now-quaint summer 2014 they still have Transformers: Age of Extinction, Hercules, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.  In 2015, they’re set to release The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge out of Water, Hot Tub Time Machine 2, Terminator: Genesis, a new Friday the 13th, and Mission: Impossible 5.  So what’s on tap for 2016?  Hit the jump for more.

transformers-4-age-of-extinction-optimus-prime-1THR reports that today at the CineEurope conference in Spain, Paramount Pictures International laid out their plans for the next couple of years.  In addition to the aforementioned movies, which as you can see consists largely of remakes, reboots, and sequels (the only original film they showcased was the low-budget found-footage picture Project Almanac a.k.a. Welcome to Yesterday, which was supposed to come out in February of this year, but was pushed back to 2015).  Additionally, almost all of these movies will be in 3D because it’s a fad that won’t die until international audiences get as sick of it as we have in the U.S.

Paramount has no plans to change its gameplan in 2016 with regards to avoiding original movies in favor of franchises and remakes.  As we previously reported, Timur Bekmambetov‘s Ben-Hur remake arrives on February 26, 2016, and Beverly Hills Cop 4 is due out on March 25, 2016.  As for the studio’s other 2016 tentpoles, Paramount is planning 2016 dates for Star Trek 3, Paranormal Activity 5, Transformers 5, G.I. Joe 3, and Hansel & Gretel 2.  How does Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters get a sequel, you ask?  Because while it grossed only $55 million domestic, it grossed almost three times that internationally.

So if you thought there would be a slight reprieve from blockbusters after 2015, tough luck.  It’s only going to get more intense.

    in 10 yeasr or so, any movie released will have a number in its title…

    • http://villings.tumblr.com/ [A]

      ..and everything will be a sequel or a remake

      • Werefon

        Yeah, we didn’t get what Tarek said. Thank You.

      • http://villings.tumblr.com/ [A]

        Because every movie with a number in its title is a remake, right? Stupid, stupid kid.

      • Werefon

        Magnificent Seven – just one example fucked you in the face, stupid fuck) (sorry but you started with the names).

      • Werefon

        So, you say you didn’t repeat his words in a dumber way about sequels?

        And what was the point calling me stupid kid after making a stupid comment repeating previous commenters words in a stupid way and adding “remake” to it?

    Whoa Whoa Whao…3D is no longer a fad. I love it and watch all movies in 3D if possible. 3D is here to stay and the rest of the people (mainly americans according to you) will have to get used to it. Last 2 years, the Best Director Oscar went to a director who used 3D. It’s an art that’s here to stay. I love it!

    • http://www.JustPressPlay.net Lex Walker

      Cuaron didn’t use native 3D, he used 2D, and then it was post-converted. Big difference (technically and visually). Lee used 3D, but then again Life of Pi was all visuals and pretty much nothing else – so that’s not something to praise (even if the Academy did).

      3D is definitely a fad, and a bad one.

      • http://tarek-to-verso.over-blog.com/ tarek

        If they will make 3D quality like Avatar, I’m in.
        that being said, not all the movies will translate well in 3D.

      • Werefon

        Resident Evil 4 had best 3D shot with Avatar cameras, it also had more real footage than Avatar. That’s why I don’t hate it. Visually that film is Gorgeous and it should be viewed as a long music video and then it will make any sense.

        ResEvil 5 has excellent opening reverse sequence with fantastic score by TomandAndy called Flying Through the Air (look it up).

        Unfortunately the rest of the movie is the worse than any low moments in the previous installments (even tough I think first film is decent).

        3D is 100% not a fad and I’ll tell you why. The industry wants to sell TVs. They tried to make make 3D work but didn’t sell enough to justify expanded content. The most recent revelations from the industry say that the problem with 3D was the brightness and the glasses (which caused headaches). There have been prototypes of 8K glasses free 3D TVs that apparently are quite amazing. That’s not even mentioning HDR TV technology like Dolby vision that is currently blowing people away behind closed doors. Google or youtube any of what I mentioned.

        Don’t jump to conclusions about 3D just yet.

      • http://www.JustPressPlay.net Lex Walker

        First off, save for Sony, the industry actually making and profiting from 3D TVs is completely separate from the one profiting off of 3D movies. And ever with 3D reliably giving box office numbers a boost, consumer demand for 3D televisions is virtually nonexistent due to a lack of 3D functionality from everyday television and the fact that only a small percentage of movies actually are in 3D or are essential 3D viewing. This is a 4-year failure to boost 3D TV sales. That’s a trend. If it doesn’t take off in home entertainment (which is an increasingly big part of a movie’s profit margin) then it’s a fad. The standard in homes will always be the theater standard as well, because like it or not, most people see movies in their homes. Now, key manufacturers are saying home 3D is a lost cause – hence the 4K being the new big thing.

        Now I’m not saying that it’s not possible for someone to revolutionize the technology so that either we get glassless 3D or to make 3D cheap enough that it’s not a barrier (because currently people will gladly take an additional 5″ on their TV for the same price they’d get a smaller TV with 3D capability). But the manufacturers themselves have essentially written off the technology as it exists on shelves today.

    Hansel & Gretal 2?? I like Gemma Arterton and Jeremy Renner both, but why would a sequel be warranted?

    • http://tarek-to-verso.over-blog.com/ tarek

      because they have made enough props to make 10 Hansel & Gretel

      • Werefon

        I would buy that leather clothes worn by Sexy Gemma.

      • http://tarek-to-verso.over-blog.com/ tarek

        I would buy Gemma, even without her clothes.

      • Werefon

        Don’t like sweaty leather pants, ha?

      • http://tarek-to-verso.over-blog.com/ tarek

        I have nothing against her pants, they are nice and very figure hugging. but they will end up taken out anyway. so why bother

      • Werefon

        For the foreplay dude. You can’t rush it or you’ll shoot first. And unlike Han Solo it won’t be Cool!

    • Cody McGowan

      because one 90 minute commercial for beating up women just wasn’t enough!

      • Werefon

        Oh c’mon! Few Black Eyes is acceptable.
        Ok, now I go shoot some alligators and “dance” with my sister.
        Don’t judge me, God Damn It.

  • gan

    2016 is too soon for another Transformers, wait till at least 2017.

    • Ridge

      yeah I don’t belive they could have enough time for another TF movie

  • http://www.JustPressPlay.net Lex Walker

    FFS leave Ben-Hur alone. God. Damn. It.

    Must have money to burn! Or maybe Paramount is like Brewsters millions, where they have to blow so many million by a sertain time or they dont get their prize.

    Only Star Trek 3 and transformers 5 has any chance of making some serious cash from this list.

  • DEADP00L

    There are no words…Transformers 5? No words… just how utterly pointless irrelevent Paramounts become. They have NOTHING new and will bleed every movie dry. Whoever is in charge is going to be hurting when the public starts washing it’s hands of this particular formula.

    • Daniel Rodriguez

      And yet The Transformers movie will still have plenty of people lined up willing to buy tickets for it and become another high grossing summer movie. If you don’t like it fine, but don’t think the world revolves around you. The numbers speak for itself, simply don’t watch it.

      • Um, Sure

        Yeah, and people line up for tickets to Nickelback. I guess that makes Nickelback super duper awesome, huh?

      • Daniel Rodriguez

        No that means I don’t see the point of going to articles and YouTube videos about the band just to voice my dislike for them. I voice my dislike for a movie or band by simply not watching them or visiting articles about them. Nickleback has fans and I don’t feel a need to crap on their fans for liking something different than me. I just simply avoid trashing them for no reason.

    • Werefon

      They still fun to watch. I know it is failure in many other aspects but it is just fun and just as fun it works.

      And lets admit it, unlike many other directors Bay can shoot action and has a visual style. I mean I better watch this than half a crap that being called action nowadays, it is dynamic.

      And since when dumb, model looking cheeks a bad thing in a summer movie?

      And this one has Wahlberg instead of Misunderstood Artist.

      • Donnie Wubs

        Yeah, the guy who talked to a plastic plant in one of his movies. Much better.

      • Werefon

        Shia your not famous anymore. So, shut it!

  • Jamie Teller

    Although the idea of a Bekmambetov BEN-HUR has some interest, the February release date does not inspire much confidence.

    • Werefon

      Yeah, Jupiter Failing and I, Frankenstein I guess didn’t convince you)

  • Manuel Orozco

    I’m not getting excited for Transformers 5 yet until 4 is complete but Star Trek 3 defintely getting pumped up hoping it’s good as last year’s installment

    • Werefon

      So you say first time director that wrote The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is more promissing than Bay? I know Bay turned a few stinkers and puts on dumb humor too often but none of his films were as bad as TASM 2 and other stinkers Orci produced and directed.

      • Manuel Orozco

        I only said about Transformers 5 because I haven’t seen the 4th one yet

  • bidi

    who has honestly been clamoring for Beverly Hills Cop 4? i know it’s not mentioned in this article either, but what about Bad Boys 3? who cares? this is all getting ridiculous. like, Scorcher level ridiculous

  • JediGrandmaster

    Hansel and Gretel 2 , seriously ?

    • Werefon

      Not really.

    • Andrew Sanders

      …or GI Joe 3 for that matter! The last one was awful enough!

  • Avery Merrick

    • Ridge

      just give 23 Jump Street now!

      • Avery Merrick

        All good things take time to make.

  • eternalozzie

    star trek 3 is the only thing there that excites me

    • The Flobbit

      Star Trek 3 is a film I have no interest to see. Into Darkness was a disaster on every level.

      • eternalozzie

        there was nothing disastrous about that movie … it just wasn’t made the way you would have liked … you are uber critical … do you ever enjoy ANY movies?

      • The Flobbit

        I enjoy most movies. But Star Trek Into Darkness was an abomination. A butchering of the Trek legacy, a terrible action film, cliched, lacking in emotion, poorly written, filled with plot holes, and utterly self-indulgent. It had its moments, but on the whole I felt it really failed.

      • eternalozzie

        you just described like 95% of all Star Trek … it’s self indulgence is one of the things that made it fun to watch.

      • The Flobbit

        Ha ha. I guess you’re right!

      • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

        Here’s darren from Dublin on it. He’s my go to reviewer for my first looks at anything and he specializes in these blockbusters. http://them0vieblog.com/2013/05/10/non-review-review-star-trek-into-darkness-2/ Right now he’s doing a retrospective on trekkian.Tell me what you think as I just started seeing them because of darren.

      • Werefon

        Well Ship crushed so in some way it was)

      • Werefon

        Now imagine it is directed by a dude who wrote TASM 2. Helped? nope.

    • Werefon

      Really? It is being co-written by the writer of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and this time he directs it. Which means no talented director will control and give direction in tone and story. Well in April we found out what happens if good director doesn’t control writing, remember.

      • eternalozzie

        This is Star Trek … it doesn’t need to be Oscar worthy … just needs a basic storyline … phasers and lens flares will do the rest of the heavy lifting.

      • Werefon

        Yeah but it still better than TASM 2!

      • eternalozzie

        ok … now you’re just trolling

      • Werefon

        Why is that? He wrote the stinker, right? Yes.
        Into Darkness was watchable rehash or Wrath of Khan but it was watchable under Abrams direction.

        Now, just imagine what happens when dude that wrote TASM2 is directed by himself.

        Just not good. Joe Cornish and Rise of the Apes director were much better choices. They could make it better than Abrams but now the hope is lost, the fate is broken.
