Sony Pictures has announced the release dates of 16 films slated for 2016, 2017, and 2019, including Ghostbusters, Jumanji, The Magnificent Seven, The Dark Tower, Resident Evil 6, Uncharted, as well as Bad Boys 3 and Bad Boys 4.

The movies that aren't sequels or reboots on this list will have big name talent behind and in front of the camera: Money Monster stars Julia Roberts and George Clooney and will be directed by Jodie Foster; Passengers is a science fiction romance featuring Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence; The Lamb is the feature film debut of award-winning animator Timothy Reckart; and Baby Driver will be Edgar Wright's first film since leaving the production of Ant-Man.

Most readers will notice the abundance of familiar names, or as my colleague Ross Miller said when seeing the announcement, "The future is the past, but in HD." In 1995, Jumanji and Bad Boys had blockbuster theatrical runs, The Dark Tower was only three books into the series, and Resident Evil was months away from release on the Sony PlayStation. Who says you can't go back?

Here's the full list of new release date announcements for the studio, via The Wrap.

Money Monster - 4/8/16
