Ok so we’re a little in 2018 now, the Oscar nominations are out and we can officially start looking forward to the next eleven and a half months of movies that are coming out. To be quite honest, there looks like an awful lot of sequels and comic book movies coming out this year, which is cool and all that but most of these kinds of films are starting to run a bit dry for me, especially the MCU films, which so far this phase have done little to “wow” me in the same way a film like The Winter Soldier did. Needless to say though, there are comic book movies on this list, so don’t freak out when you see them after this opening. It’s inevitable at this point. But there’s a bunch of non comic book movies coming out too and I’m plenty exited for them! So in no particular order, here’s a list of the films I’m most excited for this year!
The latest Marvel Cinematic Universe entry comes in the form of the strangest (ha) entry to date. Enter Doctor Strange, a metaphysical film about spirituality, dimensions and realities. And while the film stumbles a bit here and there, it is certainly the most visually engaging film I’ve seen in years and poses many questions for the future of the MCU.
