11 Can’t-Miss Movies That Will Make Us Go to the Cinema This Year
Every month so many movies are released that it’s very hard to know which is worth your time and which isn’t.
We at Bright Side have done some research and have come up with a list of the most anticipated movies. We think that these movies are definitely worth the trip to the movie theater.
Steven Spielberg had always wanted to make a movie about the competition between the 2 biggest American newspapers —The New York Times and The Washington Post. The main characters are played by Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks and in the movie, they fight for the right to shed light on state secrets. Seeing as how these 2 never make mistakes when choosing interesting characters, it’s almost a guaranteed good time.
Premiere date: Already released
4 women, a psychologist, a biologist, a survivor, and an anthropologist go to the mysterious and uncharted Area X. This is the place where very few people return from, and if they do, they are very different. This is how the story of one of the most anticipated movies of the year starts. It is based on a bestselling book. Natalie Portman plays the main part, and the director is Alex Garland who wrote and directed the sci-fi movie Ex Machina.
Premiere date: February 22, 2018
Jennifer Lawrence plays the role of a Russian spy who has to seduce a CIA agent in order to get some secret information out of him. But the chemistry between the special agents becomes stronger than their dedication to work and this is where the movie gets really interesting.
Premiere date: March 1, 2018
The anti-superhero in a red suit returns to the big screen again. Ryan Reynolds’s character is trying to get used to the new way of life while also fighting a few bad guys. The hero will continue to make silly jokes and say bad words so it’s going to be rated R again.
Premiere date: May 17, 2018
This summer, 14 years after the first part, Pixar is going to release the long-awaited sequel about the adventures of the Parr family. They will have to solve a lot of family problems and save the world again, and we don’t know which is going to be harder. The main character of the animation will be Elastigirl, and there will be many more new superheroes.
Premiere date: June 14, 2018
Solo: A Star Wars Story
The details of the movie about the adventure of young Han Solo and Chewbacca are kept top secret. It was extremely hard to find an actor for the main role. Almost as hard as it was to find an actor for the role of Christian Gray in 50 Shades of Gray. But the main female role is going to be played by Emilia Clarke, who played Daenerys from Game of Thrones.
Premiere date: May 23, 2018
The Ocean’s 11 spin-off will only have female actresses in the main roles. And they are really good — Cate Blanchett, Sandra Bullock, Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter, Katie Holmes, Dakota Fanning and even singer Rihanna. Danny Ocean’s (George Clooney) sister Debbie is released from prison and is planning a new heist. We’ll see what these bad girls will do and whether or not this movie will get a sequel.
Premiere date: June 7, 2018
Mary Queen of Scots
Mary Stuart has been played by so many actresses already that this role has only become even more interesting. This time the director of the movie is theater director Josie Rourke. The movie is about the competition between Stuart and Elizabeth I. Mary will be played by Saoirse Ronan and Margo Robbie will be Elizabeth I. By the way, her photos from the set in full makeup have already impressed fans.
Premiere date: October 5, 2018
The Girl in the Spider’s Web
This is the long-awaited sequel (or rather a reload) of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo that tells the story of hacker Lisbeth Salander. In this adaptation, the cast will be completely different. Instead of Rooney Mara who played Salander in the first part, there will be Claire Foy, who you might know as Elizabeth II from The Crown. And Swedish actor Sverrir Gudnason will replace Daniel Craig.
Premiere date: October 5, 2018
Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald
One of the most anticipated movies of the year (and especially for all Harry Potter fans) is the next part of Newton Scamander’s adventures. This time, the wizard will go looking for the evil wizard Grindelwald (who is played by Johnny Depp) as Albus Dumbledore requested. The latter will be played by Jude Law, and this is probably the biggest reason why we should all see this movie.
Premiere date: November 14, 2018
The director of La La Land (one of the most important movies of 2016 that won many Oscars) will tell a story about outer space this time. The movie tells the story of the first person who went to the Moon. The role of the astronaut Neil Armstrong will be played by Ryan Gosling, and his wife will be played by Claire Foy.
Premiere date: October 11, 2018
