2018 is now over, but the 2019 movie season is upon us! Here are some films that I’m very much looking forward to. Some honorable mentions are Godzilla: Kings of Monsters, Dumbo, Glass, Shazam, Star Wars: Ep 9, Spider-Man: Far from Home, and It: Chapter 2.
10. Aladdin – I loved Aladdin as a kid, it was my favorite Disney movie. So while I’m not convinced from the images released about the movie, I’m still curious about it.
9. Joker – Joaquin Phoenix is a stellar actor and I’m excited to see what he brings to the role of the Joker.
8. Captain Marvel – I love Brie Larson and am excited to see what the first female led Marvel movie entails.
7. Toy Story 4 – Toy Story is the perfect movie trilogy, so while I was surprised they announced a fourth one. I’m sure it’ll still be as great as the others.
6. Us – Jordan Peele’s newest thriller looks all kinds of horrifying, but I have no doubt that it’ll be the same quality wise as Get Out.
5. The Lion King – Jon Favreau’s newest film that uses the same technology from The Jungle Book to make the animals seem more realistic with an A-list cast including Donald Glover, Beyonce, James Earl Jones and more, so count me in.
4. Once Upon a Time in Hollywood – Tarantino’s film takes place in L.A. and stars Brad Pitt as Leonardo DiCaprio’s stunt double that takes place around the Manson murders.
3. Knives Out – Rian Johnson’s newest film with an A list cast including Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Lakeith Stanfield, Michael Shannon, among many more. Not much is known about the plot but this cast has me excited.
2. Jojo Rabbit – I’m a huge fan of director Taika Waititi and his newest film is a dark comedy set in World War II and is about a boy whose imaginary friend is Hitler and whose life is turned upside down when his mother hides a Jewish family in their home. I’m very excited about the film though I understand if some people would be more cautious about the plot.
- Avengers: Endgame – As a surprise to no one, I just am too curious to know what happens in Avengers 4. I need resolution after Infinity War and to see what the the future of the MCU has in store.
