Hollywood superstars in the making.
Every year a deluge of new talent floods the movie theatres and 2016 was no different. Some stars, the likes of Sofia Boutella ('Star Trek Beyond'), Travis Fimmel ('Warcraft'), Zoey Deutch ('Why Him?'), Jack Huston ('Ben-Hur') and Aidan Turner ('Poldark'), are the kind of actors that have been around for a while, but have only this year managed to land leading roles. Others have broken through with immense force after almost total obscurity:
Millie Bobby Brown at the 68th Emmy Awards
1. Millie Bobby Brown - Matt and Ross Duffer couldn't have imagined the kind of success their 80s inspired supernatural TV series 'Stranger Things' would have, but arguably the world's favourite thing about that show is Millie Bobby Brown, who plays telekinetic labrat Eleven. For a while it was up in the air as to whether or not she would return for the second series given the mysterious fate of her character in the first season's final episode, but recent confirmations suggest we haven't seen the last of her.
A wonderful year for female movie icons.
This year has been a really strong year for the development of female film roles in Hollywood. We are quickly moving away from gender stereotypes and incorporating qualities of real life everyday women, as well as real life once-in-while-women whose impact on human history are becoming more and more prevalent.
Here are our favourite female film characters from 2016:
1. Wonder Woman ('Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice')
Rich Cline talks us through some of the most anticipated movies for release in 2017.
As always, there are far too many sequels, spin-offs, remakes and reboots clogging the cinemas, but hopefully they'll be better than 2016's lacklustre batch. (Release dates are subject to change.)
Star Wars: Episode Viii - Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, John Boyega, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill continue the saga (Dec). More sci-fi sequels worth waiting for: the gang reteams for more space antics in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 (May), Michael Fassbender returns for Alien: Covenant (May), and Harrison Ford is back for Blade Runner 2049 (Oct).

There's no stopping this extraordinary superheroine.
Wonder Woman displays the extent of her powers in the new trailer for the film, which delves into Diana Prince's desire to end the War and hints at a terrible personal tragedy. It's set to be one of the most important upcoming DC films yet, apart from perhaps 'Justice League'.
Wonder Woman hits theatres in June 2017
We learnt in the 'Wonder Woman' Comic-Con teaser that Diana Prince (Gal Gadot) was a goddess who had never seen a man before, but nonetheless left with US Army pilot Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) to help him fight World War II when he washed up on the shores of her Amazonian island. We saw soldiers invade her island and the Amazons fighting back, Diana in her armoured costume using her Lasso of Truth and later crossing No Man's Land like a boss.
Continue reading: 'Wonder Woman' Trailer Sees Diana Prince Crossing No Man's Land
Diana Prince is a goddess and princess of the Amazons. She lives her life surrounded by strong women who know how to fight, so she is more than fascinated when a US Army Pilot called Steve Trevor washes up on the shore of her island paradise after a plane crash. She nurses him back to health and learns that he is fighting a huge war in the rest of the world, and it's then that she learns her true destiny. She wants to save the world at any cost, and it will cost her dearly. She returns home with Trevor and learns the ways of the women in his life, particularly those of his kooky secretary Etta Candy, but she uses her magical weapons and out-of-this-world fighting skills to protect her new friends and end the war for good.

The claims were made in an anonymous letter to Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara which was published online, Friday.
Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins has hit back a claims the upcoming film is a “mess”. In an anonymous letter to Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara published by Pajiba on Friday, a former employee described the movie as ‘another mess’ for the studio, while also hitting out at Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder.
Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman
“What are you even doing? I wish to God you were forced to live out of a car until you made a #1 movie of the year. Maybe Wonder Woman wouldn't be such a mess,” the anonymous letter read.
Diana is a princess and one of the best fighters on the island she was raised on. Her homeland was very different to what we know, it's a beautiful paradise inhabited only by women and Diana herself was brought to like by the mighty god Zeus. When a body washes up on the shore of the island, Diana cannot believe what she sees, a man has somehow found his way to their land and is in need of help.
Nursing the his back to help, the two bond and Diana learns that the man, an American pilot by the name of Steve Trevor was flying a plane when he crashed and found himself at her mercy. Steve regales many tail about the outside world and tells Diana of a catastrophic world war that's currently happening.
Moved by the pilot's stories, much to the dismay of the queen, Diana decides to leave her homeland and help fight with the Allies. The new outer world is a completely different place for Diana and she soon sees that life is very different for women outside of her normal environment. Demonstrating her fierce fighting method and lasso and sword skills, the superhero learns that her abilities are needed to protect the humans and must only be used for the greater good.

Also known as Wonder Woman.
We may have already seen Diana Prince in action following 'Batman v Superman', but this ultimate female heroine has been given even more of a makeover ahead of the spin-off movie 'Wonder Woman''s release next year starring Gal Gadot.
Wonder Woman to hit theaters next summer
In new images released of Wonder Woman in all her costume glory, she's giving us a kind of Jedi-Spartan vibe. It's far from the bright red and blue colours of former times; after all Diana Prince has been around for thousands of years, that means her outfit has to look just as ancient.

This year's most eagerly anticipated movie is a critical flop.
Probably the most highly anticipated film of the year, 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' predictably stormed the box office with $170.1 million domestic ticket sales and $424.1m global. That's easily superseding critically acclaimed hits like 'Zootopia' and '10 Cloverfield Lane', and yet it continues to be viciously attacked by critics.
It's Batman VS. Superman VS. the critics
As it stands, 'Batman v Superman' starring Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill is at just 28% on Rotten Tomatoes, actually dropping from 29% in just a day. Both would-be fans and film reviewers were left feeling more than a little disappointed at the distinct lack of any humour, the controversial ending and a lot of over-the-top production. Our own critics, Rich Cline, explained that the main issue lay in the theatrics. 'The problem is that the film is so big and loud that it can't help but feel bloated, especially since so much of what's on screen feels rather vacuous', he said.
