Despite criticism of Suicide Squad, Harley Quinn played by Margot Robbie became one of the most memorable heroines of 2016, while the new Joker caused the majority of viewers more bewilderment rather than delight. On the screens finally got "Warcraft" - this moment fans of the media franchise have been waiting for about ten years. The women's team of ghost hunters also visited the cinemas, which deserved a lot of reproaches, but performed very well at the box office.

Chazelle chose the musical La La Land as his next directorial project. Initially, the only thing that could attract the viewer seemed to be Damien himself and the main couple, Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling, since the story of the ascent to the top of fame as an aspiring actress and musician is not new at all. However, as the film season approached, La La Landa began to be talked about more and more often, and having received seven nominations for Golden Globe , the picture was included in the list of must-have films for viewing.
