There are less than 4 days until next year. 2018 is already like a great year for movies.
During these expensive theater going times, it’s important to be selective and we’ve chosen the 10 movies that we’re looking forward to next year.
Here are all the ten most highly anticipated movies to get riled up for next year 2018.
Insidious: The Last Key
Director: Adam Robitel
Starring: Lin Shaye, Leigh Whannell, Angus Sampson
Release Date: Jan 5
In the supernatural thriller, which welcomes back franchise standout Lin Shaye as Dr. Elise Rainier, the brilliant parapsychologist faces her most fearsome and personal haunting yet: in her own family home.
Director: Ryan Coogler
Starring: Chadwick Boseman, Michaek B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o
Release Date: Feb 16
Black Panther became one of our favorite MCU heroes the moment he burst onscreen in Captain America: Civil War. Next year, he finally gets a solo film worthy of a king. Ryan Coogler is directing this one, If you’ve seen Creed or Fruitvale Station, you know what he is capable of and what he is come up with is a vision of an Afrofuturist paradise that looks like nothing else at the multiplex in recent memory.
Director: Alex Garland
Starring: Natalie Portman, Tessa Thompson, Oscar Isaac
Release Date: Feb 23
The producer drama and the timid release strategy aren’t super encouraging. This is still a movie written and directed by Alex Garland , based on the award-winning sci-fi novel by Jeff VanderMeer, and featuring Natalie Portman, Oscar Isaac, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Tessa Thompson, and Gina Rodriguez among its cast. Needless to say, we’re all in.
A Wrinkle in Time
Director: Ava DuVernay
Starring: Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherpoon, Mindy Kaling, Chris Pine
Release Date: March 9
Ava DuVernay’s first narrative feature since Selma looks like nothing she is done before and we cannot wait to see what she makes of a rich sci-fi premise and the nine-figure budget to bring it to life. With a cast that includes Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling, and, of course, Storm Reid as the brave young heroine, this one looks as unforgettable as its source material.
Solo: A Star Wars Story
Director: Ron Howard
Starring: Emilia Clarke, Alden Ehrenreich, Paul Bettany
Release Date: May 25
Solo had a rough go of it in 2017, losing directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller to “creative differences” in the middle of production. Here is hoping new director Ron Howard was able to right the ship, because let’s be honest nothing’s gonna keep us from checking out this one.
Director: Gary Ross
Starring: Samantha Cocozza, Olivia Munn, Cate Blanchett
Release Date: June 8
As we already knew from wildly early promotion and super cool trailer, Ocean’s 8 stars an all-star ensemble cast of Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Rihanna, Mindy Kaling, Awkwafina, Sarah Paulson, and Helena Bonham Carter.
Mamma Mia!: Here We Go Again
Director: OI Parker
Starring: Lily James, Meryl Streep, Cher, Jeremy Irvine, Dominic Cooper
Release Date: July 20
There is a pretty high chance that Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again is going to be a mess, and an even higher chance that we’re going to enjoy the hell out of it. You know, just like with the first one. Meryl Streep’s character may be dead(?? We think?? It’s unclear!) but there’s a whole new cast of younger stars to know and love.
Crazy Rich Asians
Director: Jon M. Chu
Starring: Henry Golding, Constance Wu, Gemma Chan, Awkwafina, Sonoya Mizuno
Release Date: August 17

Release Date: November 16
What happens when you combine12 Years a Slave chief Steve McQueen, Gone Girl essayist Gillian Flynn, a starry cast drove by Viola Davis, and a powerful introduce including an abnormal heist? We don’t have the foggiest idea, yet we can hardly wait to discover. Davis, Cynthia Erivo, Elizabeth Debicki, and Michelle Rodriguez play four ladies whose spouses are murdered while endeavoring to pull off an outfitted theft – and in this manner venture up to complete the activity themselves.
