Well, it’s January. 2017 is in the books, and what a fantastic year for movies. Thor Ragnarok, Blade Runner 2049 & Star Wars: The Last Jedi were all highlights for us. So, what awaits us in 2018?
Black Panther: The next entry in the MCU continues Marvel’s bold tradition of hiring promising young directors with fresh ideas to make interesting movies. Ryan Coogler (Creed) takes the helm on Black Panther with a predominately black cast (a first for a superhero film) and the trailer feels current and fresh, with an excellent song choice by Run The Jewels. This comes out on 12/02/18. Take a look at the trailer.
Solo: A Star Wars Story: Director Ron Howard (Apollo 13) was handed the reigns to the origin story of the galaxy’s favourite scruffy looking, nerf herding scoundrel after original directing duo Phil Lord and Chris Miller departed due to “creative differences”. We’re very much looking forward to seeing how Han Solo came by the Millennium Falcon, did he swindle Lando Calrissian and was Chewbacca always that hairy!? This is released on 25/05/18 and no trailer is yet available.
Avengers: Infinity War: The culmination of all of Kevin Fiege’s world building thus far comes in the form of Thanos, a being so powerful and probably tooled up with some Infinity Stones, taking on ALL of the superheroes we have encountered so far. Too many characters to list here so just watch the trailer and I dare you to tell me it doesn’t look awesome!
