Artimis Fowl

Alita is found in a scrap metal pile by Dr. Ido, who gives her a new life as a cyborg.

Avengers: Endgame

Release date: 26 April 2019

Thanos clicked his fingers. Half the world vanished. The remaining Avengers are there to pick up the pieces, find an answer and, hopefully, rescue those Thanos removed. We know we may be about to lose some much-beloved characters, but will Marvel kill anyone off?


Release date: 8 March 2019

This Aladdin remake is the next in a long line of Disney remakes. The film has a lot to live up to, and is expected to be stunningly beautiful.

Captain Marvel

Release date: 8 March 2019

Carol Danvers just your average girl. A brilliant Fighter Pilot who’s taken into space by a Kree Spy, who then becomes one of the leading fighters in the Kree Skrull war. Oh, and she can shoot lasers from her hand. Based on the incredibly popular Captian Marvel comic book series, this film is bound to be a surefire hit.


Dark Phoenix

Release date: 7 June 2019

After nearly being killed on a rescue mission, Jean Grey returns to earth more powerful, but unable to control it. The X-Men face a hard task trying to save her.


Release date: 29 March 2019

This live-action remake is very loosely based on the 1941 animated classic. This version see’s Dumbo being looked after by a man and his two children, who have been hired by the circus. A Tim Burton film with Danny DeVito and Eva Green? Count us well and truly in!

Frozen 2

Release date: 22 November 2019

The long awaited sequal to the 2013 smash hit is finally here! Fans of Elsa and Anna can rejoice as we see the gang back together for an adventure far away from home.


Godzilla: King of the Monsters

Release date: 31 May 2019

Crypto-zoological company Monarch find themselves face to face with Godzilla and an army of other oversized monsters. If this film is a sucess, we’re expecting to see a huge amount of spin off movies. A sequal is already scheduled for 2020, so we are expecting a lot of monster fighty action.


Release date: 12 April 2019

David Harbour stars in this reboot of the Hellboy film series, which were based on the Comics by Mike Mignola. David Harbour says: “It really is this study of this man going through this horrible conundrum and we really get to go in deep with him.”

It: Chapter Two

Release date: 6 September 2019

Chapter Two sees Bill Skarsgård return as the terrifying Pennywise 27 years after killing Georgie. We fully expect to be hiding behind our popcorn, especially if the first one is anything to go by. We also hope to see the return of the Pennywise dance. Because… damn…



Release date: 4 October 2019

Joaquin Phoenix’s outing as the Joker is intended to be outside of the DCEU, but we are super excited. Phoenix had been interested in a “Character study” of a comic book character, and he has landed one of the most complex characters. We think he will make an incredible Joker.

The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part

Release date: 8 February 2019

Chris Pratt and Elizabeth Banks reprise their roles in the sequal to the 2014’s The Lego Movie. Expect overly charming animation, very cheeky humour and a lot of DC characters!

The Lion King

Release date: 19 July 2019

The much anticipated “live action” version of the smash hit animated movie. With an all-star cast and a killer source material, this film should be a brilliant hit. Besides, the live action Jungle Book was fantastic. Hopefully this film is just as breath-taking.


Men in Black: International

This spin-off from the Will Smith series sees Chris Hemsworth, Tessa Thompson, and Liam Neeson travelling across the globe to solve an international alien crisis.

Sonic the Hedgehog

Release date: 8 November

Everyone’s favourite blue hedgehog is back! This time in a 3D live action movie. The film see’s Sonic battle it out against Dr Robotnix.

Release date: 5 July 2019.

So, we now know that Spider-Man didn’t die in the old Thanos clickeroo. This film sees Peter Parker trying to regain some normality by heading out on a holiday with some friends. However, things don’t stay normal for long, as a villain stars terrorising the holiday camp.


Star Wars: Episode IX

Release date: 17 December 2019

It’s Star Wars. It’s Carrie Fisher’s (possibly) last appearence in the film series. We’re going to see it whatever happens. And probably cry. A lot.

Toy Story 4

Release date: 21 June 2019

Toy Story 3 had most of us crying our eyes out. Toy Story 4 has a lot to live up to. At the end of Toy Story 3, we see Woody, Buzz and the gang heading to their new forever home with Bonnie. According to the Pixar YouTube channel, Bonnie adds a reluctant toy “Forky” to the mix, which is seemingly a decorated Spork who is brought to life as a toy.
