46 Most Awaited Movies Of 2016

As we start with the preparations to bidding a gooooood bye to 2015, we also look forward to making resolutions and breaking them (yet again) in the upcoming year. Because you know, all new years do get old. However, there are certain long awaited movies, that are serving as top reasons why we just can’t wait for 2016 to start.

While some of these we are anticipating to be blockbusters simply because of the star cast and some for being biopics, some others have some super-skilled directors names to them.
