While 2018 has already given us teens eating Tide Pods and putting us one year closer to the next Game of Thrones season, there is also a whole slate of movies coming up to that you should look forward to. Here’s my list of the top 10 I’m most excited for:
10. “Red Sparrow”
“Red Sparrow” is coming out March 2nd and is starring Jennifer Lawrence. She is playing a young woman who turns to a secret intelligence service that trains women to use their mind and bodies as weapons. Having Jennifer Lawrence in a spy thriller has me thinking this could be a cool film and one to look out for in March.
9. “A Wrinkle in Time”
This movie is set up big with an all-star cast including Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Chris Pine and Zach Galifianakis. Based off of a children’s book, “A Wrinkle in Time” is set to release March 9 and is likely to be a big hit.
8. “Under the Silver Lake”
Although we don’t know a ton about this movie yet, we know that Andrew Garfield is set to star in the film. The film is American neo-noir crime thriller and is set to release some time in 2018. And besides, who wouldn’t want to see the former Spiderman back on the crime movie circuit?
7. “Mortal Engines”
This may be the biggest hit or miss film on the list. Produced by Peter Jackson this film is set in a post-apocalyptic steampunk world and humans are trying to survive on gigantic moving cities and must gain resources by attacking smaller cities. As fun and weird as this sounds, we are going to have to wait until Dec. 18 to see this one.
6. “Black Panther”
What kind of a year would it be if there wasn’t at least one Marvel movie on this list? While this is not the only Marvel movie on my list it is the first one. If you don’t think people are excited about this one, you’ve clearly never been on Twitter, as it holds the record for most pre-sale tickets sold for a Marvel Cinematic Universe film. The film is only a few weeks away, coming out Feb. 16.
5. “Isle of Dogs”
A stop-motion animated movie made by Wes Anderson and voiced by Scarlett Johansson, Edward Norton, Bill Murray and Bryan Cranston seems like a film too big to fail. The film takes place in a Japanese city where the mayor has banished all dogs to a garbage dump island. Soon a 12-year-old kid comes to the island in search of his dog. The movie is set to release on March 23.
4. “Spider-Man Into the Spider-Verse”
This animated Spider-Man film is a long way away, not coming out until Dec. 14. But if you see this trailer you will understand why this movie is so high up on my list. It looks like it includes some of the best animations I have ever seen and I cannot wait to see this in a movie theater.
3. “Ready Player One”
This movie is being directed by Steven Spielberg and is coming out March 30. The film is set in 2045 when the world is on the brink of destruction and the creator of the OASIS (virtual reality universe) hid an easter egg in the world and the person who finds it will receive his fortune. This movie is set to have many references to old movies and pop culture throughout the film.
2. “The Incredibles 2”
We have waited 14 years for the sequel to this movie and we are finally going to get on June 15. There isn’t much more to say then this movie is going to be awesome and there better not be any screaming children in the theatre for this one.
1. “Avengers: Infinity War”
Avengers was the obvious choice to go with for this year. All these movies that we have been seeing for many years have been leading up to this film. Coming out May 4, the Avengers are taking on the most dangerous villain yet: Thanos.
It’s safe to say 2018 has potential to become a great year in film history.
