Excellence abounded at the movie theater in what was a remarkable year for cinema in 2018. From a mustachioed frontman to an opulent au pair, 2018 had something for everyone. But don’t be alarmed, 2019 is already looking like a rousing year for cinema.
So, whether you’re a would-be action hero or you go to the cinema for a bit more Hollywood glamour, 2019 has got you covered.
With this in mind, we thought we’d share with you what we’re looking forward to watching in 2019.
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood | 7 June 2019
A washed-up actor and his longtime stunt double; the former played by Leonardo DiCaprio, embark upon a crusade to make a name for themselves in Charles Manson tortured Los Angeles in what is also Quentin Tarantino’s most ambitious movie for some time.
A chic-looking premise set in the context of a murderous cult and gruesome violence: it is easy to see how Once Upon a Time in Hollywood points towards a Tarantino triumph.
Brace yourselves for the comeback of the 1960s as we expect Once Upon a Time in Hollywood to not only be a cinematic success, but it could also secure DiCaprio his second Oscar.
Star Wars: Episode IX | 20 December 2019
“An emotionally resonant finale” is what J.J Abrams has promised Star Wars: Episode IX will be. Nonetheless, the final piece of the intergalactic jigsaw is sure to both wow and enrage die-hard Star Wars fans.
Naomi Ackie and Richard E. Grant are to join anew while Joonas Suotamo, John Boyega – now the darling of the chat show – Anthony Hamill and Oscar Isaac are set to make their noble returns.
This being the newest big-screen cosmic adventure, Star Wars: Episode IX is sure to be both an uproarious quest and financial smash.
Rocketman | 31 May 2019
As was Bohemian Rhapsody, Rocketman is directed by Dexter Fletcher and, like its contemporary, it is sure to be a sensational smash in 2019.
This long-awaited biopic – which was announced back in 2012 – is a foot-stomping, uncensored, completely human account of Sir Elton John’s breakthrough years.
The movie chronicles the years preceding the frontman’s meteoric move upwards when John, played by Taron Egerton – who replaced Tom Hardy in 2017 – united with iconic songwriter Bernard Taupin.
We’re certain that Egerton’s performance as Sir Elton John will be deserving of acclaim and award; however, it’ll be Lee’s absorbing screenplay and Fletcher’s spectacular directorship that’ll empower this movie.
The Irishman | TBA 2019
Martin Scorsese’s newest gangster movie is to be released sometime in 2019 on numerous platforms. The Irishman follows self-confessed hitman Frank Sheeran (Robert De Niro) as he recalls his possible involvement in the assassination of union leader Jimmy Hoffa (Al Pacino).
We think The Irishman will be a huge success in 2019 for two reasons: one being it’s enormous £110m budget and two being its stellar cast, which includes Joe Pesci, Harvey Keitel and scouser Stephen Graham.
This being Scorsese, we can only imagine how good this movie will be.
The Lion King | 19 July 2019
From Disney Live Action, director Jon Favreau’s remake of The Lion King (1994) is guaranteed to amaze and excite audiences both young and old.
If the wondrous trailer is anything to go by, then The Lion King is sure to be one of the most celebrated and talked about movies of 2019 due to both its stellar cast, which includes Donald Glover, James Earl Jones – who will be reprising his role as Mufasa – Seth Rogan and Beyoncé, and it being a visual treat.
So ready yourself for what is guaranteed to be an even more heart wrenching conclusion than back in 1994.
Us | 15 March 2019
From the remarkable mind of Academy Award winning author and director Jordan Peele comes Us, an even more nightmarish sequel to his directorial debut triumph Get Out (2017).
Adelaide Wilson, played by Academy Award winner Lupita Nyong’o and Gabe Wilson, played by Winston Duke, take their children to their beach house expecting to unwind. But as darkness descends, their serenity turns to tension and chaos when some hideous doppelganger’s appear uninvited.
Due to the longing for a sequel created by the success of Get Out, Us is certain to shock and excite cinema goers in 2019.
