What I'm looking forward to in 2018 Moviewise


It looks like 2018 will be another banner year for movies, especially movie sequels.

2018 will mark the 6th go around for Tom Cruise in “Mission Impossible 6” on July 27.

Sequels for Jurassic World, Spider-Man, Ant-Man, Pacific Rim, Predator and Maze Runner all will be opening during the year, as well as a part two's for Fantastic Beasts, Gnomes and The Incredibles are all on the slate. 


 





But there are some I truly am looking forward to … beginning with “Avengers: Infinity War.” The Avengers continue to protect the world against its enemies in this new film that raises the bar for the Marvel Universe. It opens on May 4th.   



Also opening in May is “Solo: A Star Wars Story,” telling the tale of a young Han Solo and Chewbacca before they joined the rebellion. The film is directed by Ron Howard and has quite a pedigree as it was penned by Lawrence Kasdan.


June 1st marks the opening day for “Deadpool 2.” I loved the irreverence of the first film and I am hoping that 20th Century Fox can give us a film as good as the first.  

For Christmas, 2018, Disney is releasing “Mary Poppins Returns” in which a now-grown up Jane and Michael Banks, along with Michael's three children, are visited by the enigmatic Mary Poppins following a personal loss. Emily Blunt plays the practically perfect nanny and Dick Van Dyke has a cameo in the film.
