My Most Anticipated Movies of 2018

As I do each year, I decided to share the top several movies I am anticipating the release of this year! Unlike usual, I decided to discuss them in the order they are set to release in the US rather than in order of most interested.

My Most Anticipated Movies of 2018

Black Panther

I’m excited to get a Marvel movie so early in the year! I thought Black Panther was interesting in Civil War and I’m glad to see him further developed in his own movie. I’m also interested in seeing how Martin Freeman’s character’s role will play into the story.

Avengers: Infinity War

ALL THE YES. The trailer got me pretty stoked to see how everything in the MCU is going to come together.

Solo: A Star Wars Story

I’m really hoping this lives up to all the amazing potential it has.

Ocean’s 8

I really enjoy the other Ocean’s movies and this one looks just as good!

Incredibles 2

I really enjoyed the first Incredibles, so yes, I’ll check out the sequel.

Ant-Man and the Wasp

The more Marvel movies I watch, the more I think Ant-Man might be one of my faves of the franchise. I know it’s not the best, but it is so stinking fun and I love the characters. I’m looking forward to more.

M:I 6

I’m a huge fan of M:I 4 and really enjoyed M:I 5 too. I’m sad Jeremy Renner isn’t joining in this time, but I’m still looking forward to another installment.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

Jude Law as young Dumbledore = brilliant casting move.

Ashes in the Snow

I almost forgot this one and I don’t see a date for US release other than 2018, but this is the movie adaptation of Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Septys, which I LOVED. (I think it’s pretty obvious why they went with a title change for the movie…) I definitely want to catch this one when it comes out.

Honorable Mentions/Maybes:

The Commuter

I’m sure this will be like every other Liam Nesson action movie, but I’m sort of intrigued.

A Wrinkle in Time

Even though the book made my top 10 of 2017, I’m not 100% sold on the movie yet. I think I’ll wait to see what others think.

Ready Player One

I was very excited when I heard Steven Speilberg was adapting this fun book to film, but the previews don’t feel like the book to me at all. I’ll wait and see what people say about this one too.

The Jungle Book 

This is more of a “probably” because I love Christian Bale and Benedict Cumberbatch, but I was never interested in the other recently released Jungle Book movie, so we’ll see if this one sparks my interest any more.

The Nutcracker and the Four Realms

Again, I’m mostly interested in this one for the talent involved: Keira Knightley, Mackenzie Foy, Morgan Freeman, and Matthew Macfayden… but the trailer piqued my interest too. I love stories about getting lost in another world, so I’ll be curious to hear if the reviews for this one are good.

Mary Poppins Returns

The idea of Emily Blunt as Mary Poppins intrigues me… we’ll see.

And the 2017 Movies I Want to Catch this Year…

Darkest Hour

The first I heard of this movie was January 1 of this year, when a friend told me about a good movie she watched where Gary Oldman portrayed Winston Churchill. Then, I saw a trailer playing for the movie, and even though the TV was far enough away for me to barely see or hardly hear, I was intrigued. And then I learn the director is Joe Wright, the director of the 2005 Pride and Prejudice, so sign me up, please!

The Greatest Showman

I’ve only heard positive things about this movie and it does look like fun.

Which movies are you anticipating to see in 2018?

  1. Lots of great movies to look forward to. I hope to see The Greatest Showman soon (my sister loved it). And I’m intrigued to see Ready Player One on the screen, even if it’s different to the book. Yes to Darkest Hour too.

  2. All these movies! And I knew about the Between Shades of Gray movie but I FORGOT (maybe they renamed it to not confuse it with 50 Shades of Grey HAHA). And I didn’t know they were making another Jungle Book movie? That will be interesting.

  3. I have a very similar post planned. There are several good-looking films coming out and my list will definitely look very similar to this (I love that we have such similar tastes in films). My most anticipated right now is Ready Player One. I picked up the book yesterday and can’t put it down. I can’t wait to see how Spielberg brings this novel to life. Great list!
