Movie studios book their release dates well in advance, so it’s not too soon for us to start making predictions about which movies are going to blow us away in 2018. But before we get to that, let’s have a quick look back at the world of cinema in 2017, and see which movies hit their mark, and which flopped faster than the first cake you ever tried to bake.
2017 hasn’t been a bad year for movies and has brought us titles like Wonder Woman, It, Dunkirk, The Fate of the Furious, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2, Alien: Covenant, and John Wick: Chapter 2. But then there are the movies we thought would do well but didn’t, like Power Rangers, Ghost in the Shell, and Baywatch. Audiences only want the best and with so much on offer, movie studios need to keep upping their game all the time.
2018 looks like a great movie year so far with a pleasing blend of tried and tested universes combined with a few interesting remakes and original film ideas. Action and fantasy titles seem to be taking the lead for the year ahead, so here are our top picks for films you should see in 2018:
15 Avengers: Infinity War
14 Han Solo: A Star Wars Story
13 Maze Runner: The Death Cure
Filming for The Death Cure began in early 2016 but ground to halt when leader actor Dylan O’Brien was injured on set. While filming a stunt he was accidentally hit by a vehicle, which resulted in a facial fracture, concussion, and multiple lacerations. Although not life-threatening he required months to recover, which resulted in the film schedule being set back considerably. But thankfully he’s made a full recovery and the film will be out early next year.
12 Ralph Breaks The Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2
11 Tomb Raider
10 Deadpool 2
9 Mission Impossible 6
7 Pacific Rim: Uprising
Pacific Rim only received lackluster reviews from American moviegoers, but it was a box office hit with the global audiences which means that there’s going to be a sequel. Charlie Hunnam, who played a lead role in the first film, will not be reprising his role due to a scheduling conflict (the man is demand) but it will include stars like John Boyega, Scott Eastwood, Adria Arjona and Jing Tian, Charlie Day and Burn Gorman.
6 Bad Boys 3: For Life
The production of this film has been plagued by masses of problems and, as a result, the release date just seems to be getting pushed back. But there have been reports that a new writer has been brought in to work on the script and there is even talk about a fourth movie for this franchise so we aren’t ready to give up hope just yet. Maybe, if we are very lucky, 2018 will be the year for Bad Boys 3: For Life.
5 Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom
4 Ready Player One
2 A Wrinkle In Time
1 Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them 2
