The year 2018 is going to blow us away with highly anticipated movies like Infinity War, Black Panther, and The Incredibles 2. At least, we hope we’re blown away by these hyped up projects. But let’s forget all about our immediate future for a second here, and delve right into the films that we can’t wait to see… in 2019.
While it’s still at least a year away at the time this article is being published, 2019 is shaping up to be an amazing year for movie fans. There are numerous reboots, sequels, adaptations, and even a couple original projects on the slate that should keep us packed into movie theaters next year.
While some of these movies have soft release date and could always be pushed into 2020, we think it’s a pretty safe bet that these 20 flicks should be on your not-too-distant radar. Here they are, in rough order of their projected release dates.
20. Hellboy – January 11
Well, we’re definitely not getting the final installment of the Guillermo del Toro/Ron Perlman Hellboy trilogy we all desperately wanted. While we’re still sad about that, we are trying to focus on the positive here. The franchise is getting a reboot in 2019, starting off with the simply titled Hellboy next January. Neil Marshall (The Descent and multiple episodes of Game of Thrones) will be directing and David Harbour (Stranger Things) takes over from Perlman as Hellboy himself.
The supporting cast is also impressive, as Ian McShane and Milla Jovovich will join the party. The plot synopsis is still pretty thin, but here’s the early confirmations: Hellboy battles a powerful sorceress who tries to destroy mankind. Seems simple enough.
This film was originally pitched as the finale of the original trilogy, but del Toro refused to be involved unless he could also write the script himself. Perlman wouldn’t come back without del Toro, so it turned into a reboot instead. Here’s hoping the R-rating delivers a dark, entertaining anti-hero movie.
