Whether you’re a films-buff or not, these are the movies you won’t want to miss out on this year! Our list has something that’s sure to interest everyone.
Pokémon: Detective Pikachu
10th May 2019
“In a world where people collect Pokémon to do battle, a boy comes across an intelligent talking Pikachu who seeks to be a detective.” – IMDB
Fans are optimistic that Ryan Reynolds will put in maximum effort, and deliver a little of that Dead Pool charm in his role as the voice of Pikachu (be it in PG films about Pokémon). And yes, you read that right. It’s 2019, and we’re living in a world Ryan Reynolds is the voice of Pikachu. Enough said.
17th May 2019
“A musical fantasy about the uncensored human story of Elton John’s breakthrough years.” – IMDB
Dexter Fletcher wasn’t credited as a director of last year’s Bohemian Rhapsody, even though he stepped in after original director Bryan Signer was fired from the production. This year, a new Elton John centred biopic directed solely by Fletcher is hitting screens. It should be interesting to compare and highlight how much of Singer’s influence was present on the highest grossing music biopic of all time.
7th June 2019
“Jean Grey begins to develop incredible powers that corrupt and turn her into a Dark Phoenix. Now the X-Men will have to decide if the life of a team member is worth more than all the people living in the world.” – IMDB
On the subject of Bryan Singer’s directorial efforts, X-Men: Days of Future Past proved to be an excellent return to form. But then X-Men: Apocalypse happened. Now fans are left wondering whether new director Simon Kinberg can pick up the pieces…
Spider-Man: Far From Home
5th July 2019
“Peter Parker and his friends go on summer vacation to Europe, where Peter finds himself trying to save his friends against a villain known as Mysterio.” – IMDB
After Sony’s far from amazing attempts at rebooting the franchise, Spider-Man: Homecoming reinvigorated fan interest in 2017. It was one of several high points of the Marvel Cinematic Universe so far, so it’s no surprise a sequel is in the works.
