2018 is almost here and that means there are plenty of amazing new movies right around the corner. Get the popcorn ready (extra butter, please!), and see what movies we have on our list for the upcoming year.
Insidious: The Last Key
Release date: Jan. 5, 2018
If you’re like us, then you just haven’t been able to get enough Insidious in your life, which is why when they announced the fourth movie, we were totally onboard. Elise Rainer will be traveling back to the Further as she investigates a case of paranormal activity going on inside a house in New Mexico. What makes this even more interesting is that this is the house Rainer grew up in.
Winchester: The House That Ghosts Built
Release date: Feb. 2, 2016
We all know about the Winchester Mystery House. In case you don’t, it basically goes something like this: Sarah Winchester moved to California after both her husband and child died. Winchester not only began building a house, she never stopped. A medium told her that she was being haunted by all the people that had been killed by Winchester rifles and the only way to please them would be to continuously build her house. We’re totally excited how to see this plays out on the big screen; and even better, Helen Mirren will play Sarah Winchester.
Release date: Feb. 16, 2018
If there’s one thing that the superhero movie genre needs, it’s more representation of POC, which is why we’ve been counting down the days until Black Panther comes out. This movie will take place right after the events of Captain America: Civil War and will feature King T'Challa coming home to Wakanda. King T’Challa finds out there are two different enemies from inside the country who wouldn’t mind taking the leadership away from him.
Release date: March 16, 2018
Love, Simon is already looking like it’s going to be one of our favorite movies of the year. Simon Spier is a 17-year-old high schooler, but nobody, including his friends or family, knows he’s gay. To make things even more complicated, he’s fallen in love with a fellow student online but doesn’t know his identity. We love this film because it highlights something many high school students go through, yet something that isn’t usually represented in major films. It’s produced by Wyck Godfrey, who produced another favorite: The Fault In Our Stars.
Release date: March 16, 2018
Lara Croft will be on another adventure, this time trying to figure out what happened to her father as she travels to an island near the coast of Japan. Alicia Vikander will take on the role of Lara Croft, and we’re totally ready to see her kick some ass.
Isle Of Dogs
Release date: March 23, 2018
If you haven’t yet discovered how amazing of a director Wes Anderson is, finish this article and then binge-watch all of his movies. Some of our favorites include Rushmore and The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou. Isle Of Dogs follows Atari Kobayashi who goes to the island completely inhabited by dogs to try and find his missing canine, Spots. The film features the voices of Bryan Cranston, Edward Norton, Bill Murray, Scarlett Johansson and even Yoko Ono.
Release date: April 6, 2018
If enjoying a really raunchy comedy is one of your guilty pleasures than 2018 has you covered. Blockers look like it’s going to be absolutely hilarious. It follows three parents trying to stop their daughters from losing their virginity on prom night. It’s directed by Kay Cannon, who wrote all three Pitch Perfect movies.
Avengers: Infinity War
Release date: May 4, 2018
Every movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe has led up to this film. The Avengers, along with a bunch of their friends, will go to war against Thanos in what’s sure to be a battle for the ages. Who will live? Who will die? There’s only one way to find out, and we have to admit: We’re pretty nervous. This battle is apparently too much for just one movie to handle as there’ll be a sequel coming out in 2019.
Release date: May 25, 2018
There’s no cooler Star Wars character than Han Solo, which is why as soon as Solo was announced, we were all over it. This film will feature the origin story of Han Solo, along with his first encounter with Lando Calrissian, who will be played by the ultra-talented Donald Glover. We’ll even be able to see how he became friends with Chewbacca. What’s not to like?!
Release date: June 1, 2018
Did you know that in the comics, Deadpool described himself as “Ryan Reynolds mixed with a Shar-Pei”? After seeing Reynolds completely nail the role in 2016, we have to say we agree. Deadpool will return in 2018 to battle the Yakuza along with a group “sexually aggressive canines.” Not sure what that means, but we’re totally ready to see Deadpool in that situation.
