We’ve rounded up 11 films with black stars that we’re anticipating will make a major impact at the box office in 2016.

Ghostbusters/Leslie Jones/Columbia Pictures


Who you gonna call when it’s time to reboot Ghostbusters? How about an all-female cast! The revamped 1980s film will star Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, and SNL’s Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon, and feature cameos from original cast members Bill Murray, Ernie Hudson, and Dan Aykroyd. Ghostbusters hits theaters July 15.
   Independence Day:  Resurgence/Vivica A. Foxx/Twentieth Century Fox
 While Will Smith’s character Capt. Steven Hiller will be absent from the Sci-Fi thriller’s sequel, Smith’s onscreen love interest Vivica A. Foxx will make her return as Jasmine. Judging from the film’s trailer, independence will once again prevail when Roland Emmerich’s sequel hits theaters on June 24.
