As we approach the year’s halfway point, you may already think that we’ve already seen some of the best movies of 2018— but there is a plenty more to come. Here’re the best films the world has yet to offer over the next seven months…
1. Ocean’s 8
Release Date: June 8
A heist film! With an all-star cast consisting of Rihanna, Sandra Bullock,Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling &a Sarah Paulson! This spin-off of Steven Soderbergh’s Ocean Trilogy has the eight-strong team stealing a necklace at the Met Gala in New York City and it looks like a riot.
2. Incredibles 2
Release Date: June 15
15 years from its release, the original Incredibles is still among Pixar’s most lovable films. This one, also from Brad Bird, picks up immediately after the superhero family’s last outing. After taking down The Underminer, Mr Incredible becomes a stay-at-home dad, while Mrs Incredible returns to her Elastigirl persona after being asked to be the face of a new superhero programme. Then, presumably, all hell brakes loose to the sound of Michael Giacchino’s awesomely brassy soundtrack.
3. Jurrasic World:Fallen Kingdom
Release Date: June 22
It’s a second Jurassic World film staring Chris Pratt & Bryce Dallas Howard – a charismatic pair that brought tons of personality to the first. That one was a loving tribute to the 1993 original; this one seems to take things up a notch when a rescue mission for the former park’s dinosaurs goes awry.
4. Ant-Man & The Wasp
Release Date: July 6
while the Avengers were getting their asses kicked by Thanos in Infinty War, Ant-Man and the Wasp are fighting a different villain altogether in this second film staring Paul Rudd & Evangeline Lilly. It’s Marvel, so even you are not a superhero fan, you’ll see promo for this goofy blockbuster everywhere in July.
5. Mission Impossible: Fallout
Release Date: July 27
Why is the MI series still going? Does anybody know? The sixth instalment is yet another Tom Cruise action movie, directed by the same guy who made 2017’s deeply unenjoyable The Mummy; it finds Ethan Hunt going completely against type as he finds his loyalty questioned and gets drawn in a race against time to avert globale disaster. It’s not necessarily going to be a good film, but it is going to make lots of money. and some of it was shot in London, which is also very nice.
Release Date: October 5
Like Mad Max: Fury Road, this is a blockbuster that’ll propel lead actor Tom Hardy another step up the stardom ladder. Here he play the antihero Venom, an investigative journalist who becomes the host of an alien symbiote that gives him powers mirroring Spider-Man’s.
7. Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald
Release Date: November 15
The second of the Harry Potter spin-off films will arrive mired in controversy; its drawn criticisms for its casting of Johnny Depp as the villainous Grindelwald, and for its decision to swerve around the topic of Dumbledore’s gayness. But the first film, centring on Eddie Redmayne’s foppish magizoologist Newt Scamander, was a big cinematic event and become one of the most profitable films of 2016, so expet big things for its sequel too.
Release Date: December 21
Following the critically planned Suicide Squad, Justice League & Batman Vs Superman, this Jason Momoa-fronted flicking DC’s latest shot at redemption. In the wake of Justice League’s events, the ruler of Atlantis struggles to keep control of his kingdom. Will it be actually good, like 2017’s Wonder Women? Or it will be yet another soggy DC mess? Fingers Crossed !!!
