Superheroes, Sci-fi, fantasy, action, and epic movies to watch in a CINEMA 2015-2020

What other kinds of films are even worth to go to the cinema anymore?
Open range, speed, spec. effects.. are reasons for me to still drive an hour per direction to a cinema.
Suggestions via P.M. appreciated !

If the US has no release date or a very late one, than it is Germany's release date
