As 2018 slowly but surely takes a bow, let us not forget to appreciate the blockbusters that graced our screens and would still grace our screen. Think, The Crimes of Grindelwald, Deadpool, Avengers: Infinity war, Ready player one, and many more.
It may seem like we have had the best of what movies have to offer with this year’s lineup, but then again, 2019 is coming with the heat, and not failing to pack a mean punch on the blocks.
To every aspiring movieholic out there, we would like to say this little piece before we get the show on the road. You are welcome! Now that is out of the way, let us get on with the list :
- What Men Want (January 11)
Starring: Taraji P. Henson, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Max Greenfield.
A gender-swapped take on the hit Mel Gibson Comedy, What Women want, because Hollywood has finally heeded the unspoken yearning of the females, that is, to give women a mental picture of what their ‘complicated’ counterparts (men) thought process is like. Taraji P. Henson finally gets this opportunity to play the coverted role in what men want and as usual, we trust that she would neither give nor take any nonsense from them.
- Glass (January 18)
Starring: Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson, James McAvoy, Sarah Paulson, Anya Taylor Joy.
Aside from the delicious cast, which should be a dead giveaway to the sheer awesomeness of this movie, M. Night Shyamalan (The Awesome Director), brings together the narratives of his two standout originals—2000’s Unbreakable, and 2016’s Split, in one explosive, all-new comic-book thriller: Glass. Following the conclusion of Split, Glass finds Dunn pursuing Crumb’s superhuman figure of The Beast in a series of escalating encounters, while the shadowy presence of Price emerges as an orchestrator who holds secrets critical to both men.T

- How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World (February 22)
Starring: Jay Baruchel, America Fererra, Cate Blanchett, Kit Harington, Kristen Wiig.
Hiccup is the leader of his village Bert, which is a dragon paradise and Toothless, his dragon, who has encountered a possible mate, are faced with a new danger to their home(Berk) which threatens to disrupt their way of life. Join hiccup and toothless in their magical adventure as they journey to a magical world (Natch) in order to save their home.
- Captain Marvel (March 8)

- Us (March 15)
