At the start of each year, I write a Five Fandom Friday about the 5 films I am looking forward that year. Last year, saw the release of so many great movies, I had to divide the list into two. This year, the films released look even better. So I am thinking of splitting the list into three!
5 Films I’m excited about in 2019 – Part 1
- The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part (February 9th)
I loved with the first Lego Movie! Having grown up playing with Lego, and still collecting minifigures as an adult. I always wanted to see the film. However, I was so surprised at the cinema. All the geeky cameos, Green Lantern, Chewbacca and Dumbledore to name a few. Not to mention all the characters I grew to love, like Wildstyle and Unikitty.
- Captain Marvel (March 8th)
I’m sure I do not need to justify why Captain Marvel is on the list!
- A kickass female hero.
- The latest movie from the MCU.
- Did I mention a strong female lead!
Of course, I am going to see it, probably more than once!
- Dumbo (March 29th)
Whilst you might think don’t mess with a classic. I am really excited about the live action adaption of Dumbo. I cried just watching the trailer. So I am not sure how I am going to make it through the whole movie. But Tim Burton’s adaption looks truly magical.
- Shazam (April 5th)
There is no denying The World of DC movies can be a little bit hit or miss. I have written my thoughts on the franchise before. However, Wonder Woman and Aquaman were good and seem to be popular. Hopefully, DC will focus on some other characters for a while. Whilst I am still holding out for my Batgirl or Nightwing movie. Until then, I can’t wait to see what Zachary Levi brings to The World of DC.
- Avengers: End Game (April 26th)
This is a bittersweet entry. Yes, of course, I am excited to see the release of the latest Avengers movie. But, as it could also be the potential end for several of my favourite characters. Of course, I am less excited. So whilst I can’t wait to see see the aftermath of ‘The Decimation‘ and defeat of Thanos, I am concerned at what cost to The Avengers as I know them!
So there it is, the movies I’m excited about released between January and April of this year! And that’s not even including the big summer blockbusters like Men in Black International or Toy Story 4. Likewise, I haven’t mentioned Star Wars: Episode Nine, which is released at the end of the year. What movies are you looking forward to in 2019?
