1.Captain Marvel- Just in time to help save the day in Avengers: Endgame, Carol Danvers makes her long-awaited cinematic in Captain Marvel. Directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck are taking us back to the 90s, where we’ll meet a de-aged Nick Fury and Phil Coulson in a story that takes us back to the beginning of Fury’s Avengers Initiative as we know it while also expanding the MCU further into the Galaxy. Enter the Skrulls, a race of extraterrestrial shapeshifters with the ability to appear human. That sure opens up the door to a lot of fun surprises in the future (just think about how much fun the writers have had with Loki’s shapeshifting powers), not to mention the arrival of Captain Marvel, said to be the most powerful of the heroes we’ve met yet. As a possible face for the future of the MCU, there’s a lot riding on Captain Marvel, but with Oscar-winner Brie Larson in the role, the beloved comic book character is in good hands.
2.Avengers Endgame- We’re all going to end up seeing this movie. You don’t see Avengers: Infinity War and then as the movie wraps you go, “I’m good.” Whether we end up loving or hating the resolution of this cliffhanger is almost beside the point. It will be one of the biggest films of the year, and hopefully, a turning point in the MCU. Some have complained the films lack stakes because the heroes always survive so they can star in more movies. Avengers: Endgame looks like some of our favorite superheroes will be wrapping up their stories, and I’m excited to see how Endgame functions as a resolution to the first three phases of the MCU and the start of something new.
3.Terminator Dark Fate- Terminator: Dark Fate, is entertaining enough, but it’s also more of the same for better or worse thematically and structurally. The first two “Terminator” films were in a class by themselves—thrillingly original, dazzlingly conceived, and improbably stirring for their humanity. This one is in a different class—cobbled together by dunces in a last-ditch effort to wring revenue from a moribund concept.
4. Gemini Man- Gemini Man is a concept and script that’s been around Hollywood for decades (indeed we can’t confirm the final script will be credited to the aforementioned writers), but the sticking point has always been how to actually bring it to reality. The story follows an over-the-hill hitman who must face off against a younger clone of himself. Thanks to the digital de-aging technology seen in Marvel movies, Will Smith will be able to tackle the dual roles in this film. And when it comes to director Ang Lee, who’s been experimenting with high frame rate and high-tech digital camera technology, we can expect something pretty groundbreaking.
5.Fast and Furious Presents: Hobbs and Shaw- Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham are packing up and taking their biceps to a Fast and Furious spinoff all their own. After stealing the show in The Fate of the Furious, the dynamic dup is launching its own franchise starter with Fast and Furious Presents: Hobbs and Shaw and they’ve lined up quite the arsenal of talent to back them. Who could be muscular and macho enough to take on the Johnson/Statham duo? Why, Idris Elba of course, who takes on the villainous role in the film. Mission:
Impossible – Fallout standout Vanessa Kirby and Baby Driver star Eiza Gonzalez are also coming along for the ride with Atomic Blonde and Dead-pool 2 director David Leitch taking the helm. Hobbs and Shaw have been touted as a grittier side of the Furious-verse, and as a bona fide Fast and Furious enthusiast.
6.Cold Pursuit- Get out of your safe space and go out and watch this movie, it’s a must-see! This movie is sure to offend almost everyone and that is what makes it so great! This film is a great bang-bang, fun, comical, action-packed revenge film where you actually can laugh as the drug dealers are picked off one by one. There are entertaining plot twists and it keeps it interesting and fun.
7. Godzilla: King of the Monsters- Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla was a blast, and now it’s Michael Dougherty’s turn to have some fun with the iconic monster. However, this time he’ll be going up against other iconic monsters from the Toho universe including Rodan, Mothra, and King Ghidorah. While Godzilla isn’t exactly known for what their human characters bring to the table, Godzilla: King of the Monsters still has an outstanding cast. But even if it was nothing but Z-level celebrities, we would still show up to watch these monsters duke it out. All hail the king.
