28 films to look forward to in 2019

2019 is finally here and now we're left wondering what films are going to grace our cinema screens. Well, look no further! Here is your official low down.


How to Train Your Dragon 3

If the trailer starts with “there were dragons, when I was a boy”, I feel like we’re in for a tear-jerker.



Jordan Peele, the director of Get Out is back at it with another psychological-horror-thriller following Adelaide Wilson (Lupita Nyong'o), her husband (Winston Duke) and son who are haunted by a traumatic experience of the past.


This live-action (although Dumbo is animated) film is getting the Tim Burton treatment and stars familiar faces like Michael Keaton, Danny DeVito, Colin Farrel and Eva Green.

Captain Marvel

This hugely anticipated super-hero film starring Brie Larson as Captain Marvel could rival DC's Wonder Woman as the Highest-Grossing Superhero Origin Film.


Avengers: End Game

How will it all end!?


I never really got into Hellboy, but David Harbour a.k.a Hopper from Stranger Things is reprising his role so hopefully it’s good!



Starring Mena Massoud as Aladdin, Naomi Scott as Princess Jasmine and as you've probably have already heard, Will Smith as the not-blue-but-maybe-blue Genie.

Detective Pikachu

Ryan Reynolds plays a talking, furry Pikachu. I’m both disturbed and intrigued.

John Wick 3

Keanu Reeves and Halle Berry star in the third installment of John Wick avenging his dog. Never forget.


Toy Story 4

Unshed those tears from the ending of Toy Story 3, the toys are coming back whether you want them to or not.

X-Men: Dark Phoenix

There’s no Logan, but we’re hoping Jean Grey’s (played by Sophie Turner) origin story will be equally compelling as the final Wolverine movie.

Men in Black: International

If Tessa Thompson and Chris Hemsworth’s chemistry was anything like in Thor: Ragnarok, I think we’re in for a good time.


The Lion King

This “live-action” remake has a star-studded cast; Donal Glover as Simba, Beyonce as Nala. James Earl Jones as Mufasa, Seth Rogan as Pumba, John Oliver as Zazu and Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar.

Once Upon A Time in Hollywood

Quentin Tarantino + Leonardo DiCaprio + Brad Pitt + Margot Robbie must equal a good time.

Here’s what we’ve been told so far:


X-Men The New Mutants

Too bad if you have X-Men fatigue, the franchise is spitting out something a little darker this time with an unfamiliar group of mutants.


IT 2

Pennywise lives. V keen to see the aged up kids because the likes of James McAvoy, Jessica Chastain and Bill Hader are joining the cast.


The Addams Family

This movie will be an animated take on the family classic featuring the voices of Oscar Isaac as Gomez Addams, Charlize Theron as Morticia Addams, Chloë Grace Moretz as Wednesday Addams and Finn Wolfhard as Pugsley Addams.

No trailer yet, but here's some more info:


It’s been 10 years since we were first introduced to Columbus (Jessie Eisenberg), Tallahasse (Woody Harrelson), Wichita (Emma Stone), and Little Rock (Abigail Breslin). How is this little makeshift family going and have they told each other their real names yet??

Not the trailer, but find out more on the plotline and release date here:


Frozen 2

We wonder if there'll be a bigger hit than Let it Go and if it'll be equally as annoying.

Sonic The Hedgehog

Starring Jim Carrey as Dr. Ivo Robotnik and featuring a lot of trap music.

Charlie's Angels

Goodmorning Charlie. This reboot of the 70s classic will star Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott and Ella Balinska as the angels.

Terminator 6

He really wasn’t joking when he said he’d be back. Here’s hoping that Arnie’s reprised Terminator role doesn’t fall flat!



Who will play the titular roles of Elphaba and Glinda? We're still speculating, but this movie is set to release at the end of 2019. Let's hope it lives up to it's Broadway predecessor! Watch Idina Menzel commenting on her dream cast below:

Star Wars Episode IX

The next installment is coming and ofc, it’ll be around Boxing Day once again. Can’t wait!

Jumanji 3

There’s not heaps confirmed about this flick yet, but I feel that we were all pleasantly surprised that Jumanji 2 wasn’t THAT bad. While there’s no official trailer yet, enjoy the bloopers from Jumanji 2.


It’s another musical to movie adaptation that you might yawn at until you hear who’s been cast; Taylor Swift, Dame Judi Dench and Idris Elba. Filming doesn’t start until 1st Feb so we don’t have much on it at the moment, so here’s a Clevver vid:


The Conjuring 3

I’m already scared.

Shrek 5

If you think you've had enough of Shrek, think again. Not much has been confirmed about this movie, but Dreamworks sure are milking the success of the first two movies.
