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
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.
ALL THE YES. The trailer got me pretty stoked to see how everything in the MCU is going to come together.
I’m really hoping this lives up to all the amazing potential it has.
I really enjoy the other Ocean’s movies and this one looks just as good!
I really enjoyed the first Incredibles, so yes, I’ll check out the sequel.
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.
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.
Jude Law as young Dumbledore = brilliant casting move.
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.
I’m sure this will be like every other Liam Nesson action movie, but I’m sort of intrigued.
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.
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.
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.
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.
The idea of Emily Blunt as Mary Poppins intrigues me… we’ll see.
And the 2017 Movies I Want to Catch this Year…
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!
I’ve only heard positive things about this movie and it does look like fun.
