2018 was a beautiful year for movies. We were thrilled, excited, emotionally-wrecked and entertained by movies like Black Panther, Avengers Infinity War, Crazy Rich Asians, Deadpool 2, etc. And just like 2018, 2019 will be lit as well! We have scoured the planet and we bring you this list of the most anticipated 2019 movies.
- John Wick – Chapter 3 | 17 May
Super-Assassin John Wick (Keanu Reeves) is on the run after killing a member of the international assassin’s guild, and with a $14 million price tag on his head – he is the target of hit men and women everywhere.
- Avengers: Endgame | 26 April
Infinity War left most people dazed. This third part of the trilogy will give us answers to many questions – questions inspired by Thanos decimating half the universe. If this list was in any order, this would be the most anticipated feature film this year.
- The Lion King | 19 July
The Lion King remains one of the best animated movies ever. And Disney is bringing it back to the big screen, in a photorealistic remake. Featuring the voices of Donald Glover, Seth Rogen, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Billy Eichner, John Oliver, Keegan-Michael Key, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter, and James Earl Jones, the world is waiting for it, with nostalgia.

- Little | 12 April
A woman is transformed into her younger self at a point in her life when the pressures of adulthood become too much to bear. And we are all looking forward to it.
- Game of thrones – Season 8 | 16 April
No, it is not a feature film, but it is so highly anticipated that we had to put it here. The producers of the final season of (arguably) the greatest show of all time have even announced that episodes will be much longer than the usual one hour, so it is only right. So on the 16th of April, we would be seeing how the battle for the Seven Kingdoms, and the war against the Night King will play out.
- Captain Marvel | 8 March
The very last scene of Infinity War had Nick Fury dialing a number before disappearing from the Thanos Snap. That call was to Captain Marvel, and her own movie will be hitting our screens on the 8th of March. Looking forward.
- Men in Black: International | 14 June
Remember when Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones donned the black suits and saved the earth from aliens? Well, the franchise is back, and in this new adventure starring Liam Neeson, Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson, we’re certainly in for an intergalactic experience. Save June 14.

- Shazam | 5 April
We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson’s case, by shouting out one word – SHAZAM! – this streetwise 14-year-old foster kid can turn into the adult superhero Shazam.
- Glass | 18 January
If you’ve seen Unbreakable and Split, you’re in for a ride, as Mr. Shyamalan brings the unbreakable one, the brittle one and the guy with 23 different personalities, including a beast together for one final showdown. January 18th is the day.
- Alita – Battle Angel | 14 February
Initially scheduled for the summer of 2018, this James Cameron-produced adaptation of the Japanese manga had already been pushed back once to a December release, before Fox decided that month was already competitive enough. Jennifer Connelly, Christoph Waltz, and Michelle Rodriguez all co-star in this blend of live action and CGI about a cyborg girl who faces her past with the help of the scientist who rescued her from the scrap heap.

- Spider-Man: Far From Home | 5 July
Last we saw Tom Holland’s Spiderman, he was telling Mr. Stark he didn’t feel so good, so seeing that he is about to thrill us in a follow up to the hugely successful Homecoming is kind of exciting. And oh, he faces off against Jake Gyllenhaal’s Mysterio – mad thing.
- Charlie’s Angels | 1 November
Cameron Diaz, Lucy Liu and Drew Barrymore were queens that year, when Charlie’s Angels hit our screens. There will be a new version starring Lupita Nyong’o and Kristen Stewart, directed by Elizabeth Banks.
