  1. Pacific Rim Uprising – March 23, 2018
  • After the first film in 2013 and its poor performance in the box office, a sequel seemed unlikely for this new robot vs. kaiju franchise. Though after Legendary Pictures was bought by Chinese Wanda Group, hopes were lifted for a sequel since the original performed well in the Chinese markets. Now in 2018 a sequel is set to release, and while for me personally it does not grip me as the original did, it is nice to see the story finally continue. We can not wait to see some more robot action!

2. Ready Player One – March 29, 2018

  • Based on Ernest Cline’s acclaimed 2011 novel of the same name, Ready Player One, takes us to the virtual game world called the “Oasis.” The film is directed by the well known Steven Spielberg , and looks to be a promising film. I have never read the novel, so this will be a nice way for me to be introduced to the story and perhaps make me decide to venture into the novel to know the differences between the novel and the film. We are big fans of sci-fi and Ready Player One seems to have no shortage of it, and with Spielberg at the helm, only the best can be expected. Time to enter the Oasis!

3. Avengers: Infinity War – April 27, 2018

  • Ending April with a bang, is Avengers: Infinity War. After a decade of Marvel films, the fight against Thanos has been highly anticipated by many fans. The heroes that we have seen over the years have finally meet their match, and this will truly be a fight that will put their skills to the test. Some characters will probably die, which ones are uncertain at the moment, so when the movie releases be sure to look out for spoilers! It’s finally time, let’s hope the build up and wait has been worth it. Though with Marvel Studios recent track record, we are not worried. Bring it on!

4. Deadpool 2 – May 18, 2018

  • Our favorite anti-hero in red is back on the big screen and is as crazy as ever. After how well it performed in the box office and its positive reception, it will exciting where they take Deadpool next. Expect to see a good amount of humor, action, and a lot of fourth wall breaking. We are more than ready to see where their writing team takes this “unique” character.

5. Solo: A Star Wars Story – May 25, 2018

  • Just a few months after the divisive film that was Star Wars: The Last Jedi, another Star Wars film is set to release this May. This films aims to explore the origin of Han Solo, a famous smuggler in the universe of Star Wars. While this film has had quite the rocky development cycle, and mixed feeling of anticipation from fans as they are unsure of Ehrenreich’s performance of a character that has long been done by Harrison Ford. No matter what angle this film takes on Han Solo’s character, it will be a nice opportunity to show more of the Star Wars universe on the big screen aside from the novels and comics.
