Last updated with the first trailer for Joker.

In cinemas now: Avengers: Endgame

Starring: Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johannson

What we know: An era is coming to an end in what's almost certainly the final Avengers film with the MCU's core cast, as they deal with the fallout from Infinity War. Expect a more sombre tone (at least to start off with) and almost certainly a few major deaths as the heroes fight to undo the damage from that film.

Check out the latest Avengers: Endgame news and trailers.

Detective Pikachu

Detective Pikachu release date: 10 May 2019

Starring: Justice Smith, Ryan Reynolds

What we know: Ryan Reynolds brings some Deadpool-esque charm to an unlikely place: a talking Pikachu. This leftfield Pokemon adaptation is actually based on a spin-off game, and sees a hard-boiled detective Pikachu team up with a human to solve a mystery that may threaten the whole Pokemon world.

John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum

John Wick 3 release date: 17 May 2019

Starring: Keanu Reeves, Halle Berry, Laurence Fishburne, Ian McShane

What we know: Keanu is back and you better not touch his dog in John Wick 3, which once again sees him take on the whole shadow-y world of international assassins as he just tries to get out and find peace. Don't expect a lot of peace in this movie though: the last two featured some of the most extraordinary action sequences ever shot, and we have high hopes for more of the same.

Aladdin release date: 24 May 2019

Starring: Mena Massoud, Naomi Scott, Will Smith

What we know: Disney continues its run of live action remakes of its classic cartoons, this time tackling '90s favourite Aladdin. Brit director Guy Ritchie is calling the shots, with up-and-comers Mena Massoud and Naomi Scott in the lead roles as Aladdin and Jasmine. There's one very big name in the cast though: none other than Will Smith is stepping into Robin Williams' oversized shoes as the big blue genie.

Find out more about Aladdin and watch the latest trailers.

Godzilla: King of the Monsters

Godzilla: King of the Monsters release date: 31 May 2019

Starring: Millie Bobby Brown, Vera Farmiga, Kyle Chandler, Charles Dance

What we know: Stranger Things' Millie Bobby Brown joins the next entry in the revamped Godzilla franchise, which will pit the giant lizard up against a few of the biggest monsters from the old franchise - including Mothra and Ghidorah - as part of some very strange plot about how they're all going to save the world. It looks mad, and over-the-top, and yet has a strangely haunting debut trailer. We can't wait.

X-Men: Dark Phoenix

X-Men: Dark Phoenix release date: 7 June 2019

Starring: Sophie Turner, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Jessica Chastain

What we know: The newest iteration of the X-Men saga adapts the iconic Dark Phoenix storyline - also seen in the pretty rubbish X-Men: The Last Stand back in 2006 - in which Jean Grey's powers expand and she transforms into something...more. X-Men: Apocalypse was pretty rubbish, but hopefully this can restore a bit of the series' charm before Marvel reboots it all into the MCU anyway.

Men in Black: International

Men in Black: International release date: 14 June 2019

Starring: Chris Hemsworth, Tessa Thompson, Liam Neeson

What we know: Thor and Valkyrie are back together again - sort of. Fresh off Thor: Ragnarok, Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson are reunited in this long-awaited revival of the Men in Black franchise, which moves the action to London and looks (fingers crossed) like a return to the charm of the original.

Read the latest news on Men In Black 4.

Toy Story 4

Toy Story 4 release date: 21 June 2019

Starring: Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Joan Cusack, Keanu Reeves

What we know: Everyone's favourite sentient toys are back in the fourth film that we didn't know we needed, but somehow looks really bloody brilliant anyway. This time there's a homemade toy (meet 'Forky'), a funfair, and a newly badass Bo Peep. We're sold.

Spider-Man: Far From Home

Spider-Man: Far From Home release date: 5 July 2019

Starring: Tom Holland, Jake Gyllenhaal, Zendaya, Marisa Tomei, Samuel L. Jackson, Jon Favreau

What we know: Tom Holland is the first Avenger returning in the wake of Endgame in this sequel to Homecoming, which takes Spidey across the Atlantic on a field trip to Venice, London, and maybe a few other European spots. There'll he be up against Jake Gyllenhaal's Mysterio - and potentially lesser-known Spidey rogue Hydro-Man. We can't wait.

The Lion King

The Lion King release date: 19 July 2019

Starring: Donald Glover, Beyonce, James Earl Jones, Chiwetel Ejiofor

What we know: Director Jon Favreau (Iron Man, The Jungle Book) is helming this photorealistic remake of Disney animated classic The Lion King. The one and only Donald Glover (!) will voice Simba, joined by Beyonce (!!) as Nala, while the legendary James Earl Jones (!!!) is revisiting his iconic performance of Mustafa.

Check out more Lion King news.

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood release date: 26 July 2019 (US), 14 August 2019 (UK)

Starring: Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie

What we know: Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt play a movie star and his stunt double in '60s Hollywood, trying to make the most of the good life in a story that - somehow - will intertwine with Charles Manson's murder of Sharon Tate, played here by Margot Robbie. It's the sort of story that could go very wrong, but if anyone can pull it off, it's Quentin Tarantino.

Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw

Hobbs & Shaw release date: 2 August 2019

Starring: Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Idris Elba

What we know: Two of the best Fast & Furious characters (and action stars, period) are back together in the first ever spin-off in the Fast, Furious Cinematic Universe. Who could possibly hope to stand up against the combined forces of The Stath and The Rock though? Well, only Idris bloody Elba. This should be good.

Artemis Fowl

Artemis Fowl release date: 19 August 2019

Starring: Judi Dench, Josh Gad, Ferdia Shaw

What we know: This book adaptation from Disney is a little different: the young Artemis Fowl is actually the baddie, a 12-year-old criminal mastermind who finds himself drawn into battle against an underground race of fairies. Kenneth Branagh is directing, so it should be a good one.


Joker release date: 4 October 2019

Starring: Joaquin Phoenix, Zazie Beetz, Robert De Niro

What we know: When we first hear that there was a Joker solo movie on the way, we were sceptical. When we found out it'd be directed by Todd Phillips - best known for The Hangover series - and produced by Martin Scorsese, we were confused. When we saw the first trailer, we were suddenly cautiously optimistic. This... might actually be good?
