Movies I Am Excited For In 2018
Posted on 31st December, 2017 - By Dan Whiteside
2017 has been great year for movies, but the new year approaching these are the movies I am excited for in 2018. For us geeks, it is going to be an awesome year for movies; with a major release nearly every month through-out the year.
We have written about and broke down some of the biggest trailers this year; and following on from that we have put together an awesome list of films to look forward to in 2018. Has your most anticipated move of 2018 made it on to our list? Let us know in the comments below if it hasn’t!
We first got a glimpse of Black Panther in Captain America: Civil War and following on. One of our staff writers did a write up on this trailer when it was first released – I’d highly recommend you give it a read!
You haven’t got long until you can sink your paws into this one, Marvel’s Black Panther hits the big screen on the 16th February 2018. It should give you your super hero fix until Avengers: Infinity War comes out later in the year.
I originally wrote about the reveal of the first Tomb Raider trailer back in September; following news of its reboot – I really can’t wait for this movie to be released! Replacing the iconic Angelina Jolie with an up and coming actress Alicia Vikander is a massive risk for Warner Bros. But we have high hopes they will bring a new spark to the franchise.
Especially with the announcement that there is also going to be another game in 2018. It’s going to be an exciting time for Tomb Raider fans.
Don’t worry, you will be raiding tombs in no time as Tomb Raider is due for release on the 16th March 2018.
Ready Player One
Steven Spielberg is back with one of my most watches of 2018, Ready Player One. The trailer featured so many cameos like Tracer from Overwatch and The Battle Toads as well as Chun-li and Blanka from Street Fighter. This film will hit so many nostalgia feels from gaming in the 90s!
Luckily we haven’t got long to wait till we can go to the Oasis, as it is released on the 30th March 2018.
Avengers: Infinity War
Want to see all of your favourite Marvel Super Heroes in one film? Then Avengers: Infinity War is your answer! Continuing on from where Captain America: Civil War left off. One of our writers did a fantastic breakdown of the trailer when it was originally released at the end of November. So i’d recommend you check it out for some great analysis.
You can decide if your on Team Cap or Team Iron Man on the 4th May 2018.
The New Mutants
The X-Men franchise is going to have a great 2018. With the release of The New Mutants, which will hopefully bring new and exciting look to new and interesting characters. Another member of the team has done a great write up and breakdown of the trailer. Be sure to find out why he’s excited for The New Mutants.
It doesn’t take long for the mutation to take effect… with it hitting the big screen on the 13th April 2018.
Solo: A Star Wars Story
The Solo movie is going to be like a double edged sword. It’s either going to be a brilliant master piece and a great homage to the character that is “Han Solo”. Or it is going to be one of the biggest disasters in movie history. The founder of GoneFullGeek wrote about his worries for a Han Solo movie which I would advise you to have a gander over.
I am personally really looking forward to it; but with no trailer to go off and with all the news of the issues they have had during production, we will just have to wait and see.
Thankfully the release is not in a galaxy far, far away; as it will be hitting theatres on the 25th May 2018.
DC haven’t had the greatest of years; with 2017 bringing us Wonder Women and the Justice League. In my personal opinion they should of held back with the Justice League until they had individual movies released for each member. Just the way Marvel did it and for them it has been a great success. The Justice League pretty much threw the fans into the deep-end with characters they may not be too familiar with.
One being Aquaman; so hopefully the wait will be worth it?
Sadly we have to wait until the end of 2018 to see Jason Momoa’s Aquaman story. That being said, Aquaman is one of my favourite members of the Justice League; unfortunately just been beaten by Batman.
You will get your first glimpse of Atlantis when it hits the big screen on the 21st December 2018.
I am excited to be visiting the cinema many times in 2018; with being spoilt for choice. What films are you excited for in the new year and why? Let us know in the comments below.
But until next time, remember for all of your movie news, stick with GoneFullGeek.
The Team would also like to wish you all a Happy New Year.
