There are many things that agents trained or altered by the CIA’s Treadstone and its associated dark programs can do, but changing time so movies that need more development can meet their original release dates is not one of them. Universal has announced that the follow up to The Bourne Legacy will not hit its originally planned August 2015 date, but is now pencilled in for July 15, 2016.

While there are few concrete details about what the film will entail, we do know that Jeremy Renner will return as Aaron Cross, Andrew Baldwin is currently at work on the script and Fast & Furious veteran director Justin Lin is in charge of calling the shots.

But that’s just the tip of the release iceberg that has mostly been spurred by studios making presentations at the CineEurope convention in Spain. Paramount had the stage today, screening footage from its 2014 line-up and confirming the likes of Terminator: Genesis,** Hot Tub Time Machine 2**,** The Gambler,** the latest Friday The 13th and Mission: Impossible 5 for 2015.

Looking ahead to 2016, we can expect more franchise fare such as Star Trek 3 (no confirmed word on a director yet),** Transformers 5**, G.I. Joe 3, Paranormal Activity 5, Timur Bekmambetov’s take on **Ben Hur **and the one we know you’re all waiting for, a sequel to Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters. Contain your excitement! You'll scare the animals.
