Most Anticipated Hollywood Movies of 2018
1) The Incredibles 2
The Incredibles ended on a slightly ominous note around fourteen years ago with the appearance of a new mole-like villain named The Underminer. The sequel, set for a summer release, will pick up from this point, following the titular family as they attempt to thwart The Underminer’s evil plans. At this summer’s D23 expo, director Brad Bird also confirmed that The Incredibles 2 would devote more of its focus to Elastigirl this time around.
2) Avengers: Infinity War
Few movies have seemed more destined to make a billion dollars than Avengers: Infinity War. The Marvel Cinematic Universe is going to deliver its most ambitious project: a film which unites every single protagonist introduced in its 17-picture run.
3) Solo: A Star Wars Story
Star Wars spinoff’s primary concern has been the firing of co-directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller, who were replaced by Ron Howard. Fans of this sci-fi serial can't wait to see Alden Ehrenreich’s embodiment of a young Han Solo in this stand-alone instalment.
4) X-Men: Dark Phoenix
2016’s X-Men Apocalypse, has not been received well. The next instalment, Dark Phoenix, is a risky endeavor, largely because of its writer-director, Simon Kinberg. Though Kinberg has long been a producer on the franchise, he’s never directed a feature before. The ’90s-set story will adapt to one of the most famous in the X-Men comics canon. This definitely comes under anticipated movies 2018.
5) Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse
Miles Morales who was introduced in the pages of Marvel Comics in 2011 has become one of the most beloved characters in superhero category. He’s an Afro-Latino teenage boy living in New York City who assumes the Spider-Man mantle after the death of Peter Parker, and though he represented a breakthrough for representation of people of color in comics. He makes his movie debut in this CGI-animated flick set in a different world than last year’s live-action Spider-Man: Homecoming.
6) Ocean's 8
The Ocean’s 11 franchise which ran from 2001-07 has brought you Ocean’s 8 which is an all-star cast of leading ladies, and we are suspecting some great cameos too! The first Ocean’s 8 trailer did not do very well, but we can only hope with Gary Ross directing and writing, and Steven Soderbergh producing, this could be a fun crime adventure.
7) Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom
Jurassic World has set new records worldwide when it debuted, and for the sequel director J.A. Bayona (The Impossible, A Monster Calls) is planning a different kind of dinosaurs adventure four years after the first one. In this movie, Owen Grady and Claire Dearing find a reason to return to the island of Isla Nublar.
8) Tomb Raider
Assassin’s Creed and the second attempt at Hitman: Agent 47 were not very successful. So, what will make Alicia Vikander’s Lara Croft any different? The Tomb Raider video game franchise has seen new life since its gritty and realistic reboot from which the film draws its inspiration from.
