For fans of the big sequels, reboots or spin-offs, time to save up for the cinemas! There’s a lot to look forward to almost every week until October. It’d be a crime to miss any of them. 😉
#1 Solo: A Star Wars Story (May 24)
Stars Alden Ehrenreich, Emilia Clarke, Donald Glover, Thandie Newton and Woody Harrelson.
This origin story of space rascal Han Solo (played by Ehrenreich) is predicted to be this year’s biggest box office smash after Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity Wars.
The rebooted series has yet to disappoint film critics and fans alike. Let’s hope this addition can be as good as, or even better than the first spin-off, Rogue One (2016)!
#2 Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (June 7)
Stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Jeff Goldblum and BD Wong.
This rebooted series started with Jurassic World in 2015. When a volcano threatens the island on which the destroyed former park stands, the animals are brought to mainland America. But disaster strikes and trainer Owen (Pratt) returns as the guy who’ll save the day.
#3 Incredibles 2 (June 14)
Stars Holly Hunter, Crag T Nelson, Sarah Vowell, Samuel L Jackson and Brad Bird.
A sequel long overdue (Incredibles first came out in 2004!), this movie is about a superhero family forced to hide their powers, but eventually goes out of their way to save the day. Definitely one of Pixar’s best animated works so far, we feel.
#4 Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again (July 19)
Stars Julie Walters, Amanda Seyfried, Christine Baranski, Meryl Streep, Lily James, Colin Firth, Stellan Skarsgard and Pierce Brosnan.
Are you ready to sing and dance along to more nostalgic Abba hits? Yes? Us too!
This sequel to the 2008 surprise hit will flash back to Streep’s character of Donna (James) when she first appears on the Greek island and meets three men who might be the father of Sophie (Seyfried).
#5 Mary Poppins Returns (Dec 25)
Stars Emily Blunt, Lin-Maunel Miranda, Ben Whishaw, Emily Mortimer, Colin Firth, Dick Van Dyke.
Can you believe that the original movie was released 54 years ago in 1964? This sequel, which carries on the story three decades after the events of the first movie, is debuting on Christmas.
Emily Blunt takes over nanny duties from Julie Andrews, and is called back into service when Michael Banks (Whitshaw) suffers a crisis.
Perhaps we will hear another super-cali-fragil-istic-expi-ali-docious?
And a bunch of other movies to lock in your calendar too. You’re welcome! 😉
