We love movies and we definitely like lists. So with a bunch of upcoming trailers released over the last few weeks, we thought...hey here's an opportunity for a list! :). A list of movies we will probably see on opening weekend. **Spoiler Alert** many of these will be comic book related.
- Thor: Ragnarok - I have to confess. The Thor movies have not been my favourite Marvel adaptations. This one though features Hulk, in space!... Hulk in armour!... and Hulk smashing sh...stuff! It also features Cate Blanchett as Hela, queen of death...which means Thanos (Marvel's Big Bad) might show up.
- Justice League - Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and Flash all in one movie! After the success of Wonder Woman we hope it delivers. Josh Whedon took over from director Zack Snyder and he did the first Avengers movie. In Josh we trust!
- Mother! - Not knowing much about a movie's plot is always exciting. The trailer suggests a suspenseful thriller/horror. It's cast is stellar featuring Jennifer Lawrence, Javier Bardem, Michelle Pfeiffer and Ed Harris. Reviews were a bit divided, so not sure what to expect here.
- Black Panther - Undeniably a landmark movie. In February the first solo black Marvel superhero hits our screens. Directed by Ryan Coogler (Creed) it takes us into the fictional super advanced African country Wakanda. Chadwick Boseman reprises his role as T'Challa opposite a super buff Michael B. Jordan as the villian Killmonger.
- Star Wars The Last Jedi - Following the events of The Force Awakens, this has to be hands down...one of the best trailers for a movie yet. So many questions are raised...and we finally see Luke Skywalker back in action!
- Ready Player One - Steven Spielberg directs! Based on a novel of the same name about a VR game in which participants have to find an easter egg left by it's creator. It also features throwbacks to 80s pop culture. It looks fantastic!
- Tomb Raider - The new series of games are great! Now a movie, following the same aesthetic of the rebooted games is coming. It looks beautiful and Lara Croft's return looks to be an adventure in the Indiana Jones tradition.
- Jumanji - Kevin Hart, The Rock and Jack Black? I loved the original movie with Robin Williams and this looks like it has the potential to be a good time as well. Kevin Hart is a comedic genius and well...we'd watch anything he's in.
- Bright - Director David Ayer returns with a Netflix buddy cop movie starring, Big Willy Style, Will Smith. It's definitely not a Bad Boys kinda cop movie, as there are aliens, guns, swords and magic...double-tick!
- Avengers: Infinity War - All of the Marvel movies converge here in the first part of Infinity War. Thanos faces off against everyone! Guardians of the Galaxy, Thor, Iron Man, Ant-Man, Spiderman, Dr. Strange and every other hero we have met since 2008. Nerdgasms are going to be had. There is no official trailer out yet, but expect a teaser in December.
So, what movies are you looking forward to in the next few months? Did we miss something you are looking forward to?
