Last updated with the latest trailer for: Creed 2.

In cinemas now: Incredibles 2

Starring: Craig T. Nelson, Holly Hunter, Samuel L. Jackson, Bob Odenkirk, Catherine Keener

What we know: Forget The Avengers - this year's biggest superhero squad comes fully animated. 14 years on from their 2004 debut, Pixar's The Incredibles are back in a long-awaited sequel. We finally have a full trailer for the film, which sees Elastigirl become the family's main superhero, leaving Mr. Incredible to manage the kids, with... mixed results.

Read our Incredibles 2 round-up for the latest on the Pixar sequel, or check out our review to find out what we think of it.

In cinemas now: Skyscraper

Starring: Dwayne Johnson, Neve Campbell

What we know: What if Die Hard, but starring the Rock. And the building is three times as high. And the Rock is an amputee. That's Skyscraper. Let's be honest, it's not the most original looking movie in the world, but we'd watch Dwayne Johnson in just about anything, and the patriot amputee security expert fighting to save his family is basically the role he was born for.

Hotel Artemis

Hotel Artemis release date: 20 July 2018 (UK - out now in the US)

Starring: Jodie Foster, Sterling K. Brown, Charlie Day, Sofia Boutella, Dave Bautista, Jeff Goldblum

What we know: Jodie Foster is a night nurse to the criminal underworld in this action movie from first-time director (but long-time writer) Drew Pearce, which shows more than a hint of influence from the John Wick films. The near-future setting looks particularly fun (3D-printed guns!) and we will happily watch absolutely anything that features Jeff Goldblum as a criminal kingpin.

Mission: Impossible - Fallout

Mission: Impossible - Fallout release date: 27 July 2018

Starring: Tom Cruise, Simon Pegg, Rebecca Ferguson, Alec Baldwin, Henry Cavill

What we know: Tom Cruise is back as Ethan Hunt in the sixth (6!) Mission: Impossible movie, this time subtitled Fallout. Once again there's an impossible mission, government bickering, betrayal, silly tech, and some of the biggest stunts in movie history. We got our first trailer during the Super Bowl, and it was the best of all the mid-game teases.

Ant-Man and the Wasp

Ant-Man and the Wasp release date: 3 August 2018 (UK - out now in the US)

Starring: Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Michael Douglas, Michael Peña

What we know: Scott Lang is back on the run after helping Captain America save the day in Civil War, but at least this time he's got help: Hope is suiting up as the Wasp to bring us some tag team heroics - and the first (joint) lead role for a woman in a Marvel movie yet (at least until Captain Marvel arrives in 2019).

Check out our guide to all things Ant-Man (and the Wasp) for the latest news and trailers, read our review of the film, or get the scoop on the post-credit scenes.

Christopher Robin

Christopher Robin release date: 3 August 2018 (US), 17 August 2018 (UK)

Starring: Ewan McGregor, Hayley Atwell, Mark Gatiss, Peter Capaldi, Chris O'Dowd

What we know: Ewan McGregor plays an adult Christopher Robin in this live-action take on Winnie the Pooh, which sees the bear reunite with his owner a few decades on, once he has a daughter of his own. It's from Disney, so expect the tone and voices to skew close to the classic cartoons, though the visuals are actually closer to the original book. Either way, this already looks like the heartwarming family film to beat this year.

The Spy Who Dumped Me

The Spy Who Dumped Me release date: 3 August 2018 (US), 22 August 2018 (UK)

Starring: Mila Kunis, Kate McKinnon, Justin Theroux

What we know: James Bond this is not. Mila Kunis stars as a woman who discovers that her ex-boyfriend was secretly a CIA agent all along, and gets unwittingly dragged into some sort of evil plot, along with her best friend (Kate McKinnon). Expect this to be big, brash, and silly - but hopefully a lot of fun too.

The Meg

The Meg release date: 10 August 2018

Starring: Jason Statham, Rainn Wilson, Bingbing Li, Ruby Rose

What we know: It's Jason Statham vs. the biggest shark you've ever seen. Do we really need to say more? Alright, fine. The shark is actually a megalodon, a supposedly extinct species that grew up to 60 feet long. Turns out, there's at least one left, and the only man brave enough to do that thing where you punch a shark on the nose to make it go away is the Stath himself.

The Predator

The Predator release date: 14 September 2018

Starring: Jacob Tremblay, Olivia Munn, Boyd Holbrook, Thomas Jane

What we know: Shane Black's career has finally come full circle. After acting in the original Predator way back then, the acclaimed writer/director (of Iron Man 3 and The Nice Guys, most recently) is back to create the latest attempt to recapture that Arnie magic. Except instead of Mr Universe we get Jacob Tremblay (you know, the skinny kid from Room), and the South American jungle has been swapped for a US suburb. Don't worry though - it looks like there are plenty of soldier and guns and ultra-violence too.


Venom release date: 5 October 2018

Starring: Tom Hardy, Michelle Williams, Riz Ahmed

What we know: Tom Hardy is Eddie Brock, the old-school Spider-Man antagonist turned full-blown villain after he inherits the black 'symbiote' costume, turning him into the monstrous Venom. Except in the trailer for this spin-off film there's no sign of Spidey, Brock's thick New York accent is transplanted to San Francisco, and there's no sign of, well, Venom. Y'know, the main character. We are a little bit concerned.

Bad Times at the El Royale

Bad Times at the El Royale release date: 5 October 2018 (US), 12 October 2018 (UK)

Starring: Jon Hamm, Chris Hemsworth, Dakota Johnson, Jeff Bridges

What we know: Part Hotel Artemis, part Hateful Eight, Drew Goddard's second film as a director (after The Cabin in the Woods, though he's also written loads) sees seven strangers cross paths at the El Royale: an old hotel that straddles the California and Nevada state lines. There's more to the El Royale than it seems though - and to the guests.


Halloween release date: 19 October 2018

Starring: Jamie Lee Curtis, Judy Greer

What we know: Jamie Lee Curtis is back in yet another Halloween sequel, but this one actually looks... good? Could it be? Having David Gordon Green in the director's seat doesn't hurt, and the trailer shows off some inventive scares and impressive visuals. We're in.

Bohemian Rhapsody

Bohemian Rhapsody release date: 2 November 2018

Starring: Rami Malek

What we know: Mr. Robot is becoming Mr. Mercury, as Rami Malek steps into the shoes of the one and only Freddie Mercury in this biopic of the Queen frontman and songwriter. Will this be the killer Queen film we've all been waiting for?


Suspiria release date: 2 November 2018

Starring: Dakota Johnson, Chloe Grace Moretz, Tilda Swinton

What we know: Director Luca Guadagnino follows up his enormously acclaimed Call Me By Your Name with an altogether different film: a remake of his countryman Dario Argento's legendary horror classic Suspiria. Just like the original, it looks equal parts terrifying and strange, in no small part thanks to a score from Radiohead's Thom Yorke. Expect this one to be a stormer.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald release date: 16 November 2018

Starring: Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Jude Law, Johnny Depp

What we know: Eddie Redmayne is picking up his wand once again as Newt Scamander, this time caught in the midst of the battle between a young Dumbledore (Jude Law) and the infamous Grindelwald (Johnny Depp). There'll be magic and hijinks and all that good stuff.

Robin Hood

Robin Hood release date: 21 November 2018 (US), 23 November 2018 (UK)

Starring: Taron Egerton, Jamie Foxx, Ben Mendelsohn

What we know: Yup, this is yet another film about stealing from the rich and giving to the poor, this time firmly in the thunderous action movie mould. Taron Egerton is brave sir Robin this time around, in a setting that seems to be a confusing mix of the medieval and the modern. It all looks pretty exciting though, so consider us intrigued.

Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It-Ralph 2

Wreck-It-Ralph 2 release date: 21 November 2018 (US), 30 November 2018 (UK)

Starring: John C. Reilly, Sarah Silverman, Jack McBrayer, Jane Lynch

What we know: John C. Reilly's arcade baddie breaks out of the local network and onto the world wide web. Chaos ensues. From iPad games to clickbait, this sequel looks to be throwing Ralph up against the best (and worst) of the modern online age, while the latest trailer throws in a whole mess of Disney characters too. We can't wait.

Creed 2

Creed 2 release date: 21 November 2018 (US), 30 November 2018 (UK)

Starring: Michael B. Jordan, Sylvester Stallone, Tessa Thompson

What we know: Black Panther villain Michael B. Jordan is stepping back into the ring in the sequel to Rocky spin-off Creed, this time with a new director and a script by Sly Stallone himself. This time around Jordan's Adonis will be taking on Viktor Drago - a name that should sound familiar to Rocky fans, as it was his father Ivan Drago that killed Apollo Creed (Jordan's character's father, in case you're losing track) in Rocky IV. So, you know, it won't be personal or anything.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse UK release date: 14 December 2018

Starring: Shameik Moore, Mahershala Ali, Brian Tyree Henry

What we know: This is the Spider-Man movie you didn't know you should be so excited about. Phil Lord and Chris Miller (of The Lego Movie and the Han Solo movie until they were replaced) direct this animated take on the webslinger, featuring Miles Morales rather than Peter Parker behind the mask. It looks absolutely gorgeous, like no other comic book movie before, and even teases multiple Spideys in one film. We can't wait.

Read our guide to Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse for the latest on the film.

Mortal Engines

Mortal Engines UK release date: 14 December 2018

Starring: Robert Sheehan, Hera Hilmar, Hugo Weaving

What we know: Peter Jackson is producing this adaptation of Philip Reeve's post-apocalyptic book series, which has seen cities turned into giant vehicles, roving the wasteland and consuming smaller 'traction towns'. It, uh, sounds pretty nuts to anyone who hasn't read the books, but we're definitely intrigued.

Alita: Battle Angel

Alita: Battle Angel UK release date: 21 December 2018

Starring: Rosa Salazar, Christoph Waltz

What we know: Robert Rodriguez is directing this live action manga adaptation (with the legendary James Cameron producing) that falls squarely into the uncanny valley. In adapting the '90s manga Battle Angel Alita Rodriguez has used CGI to maintain those characteristic giant anime eyes - though only for the lead - to unsettling effect. We're not sure yet how well it'll work, but colour us intrigued.

Mary Poppins Returns

Mary Poppins Returns release date: 21 December 2018 (UK), 25 December 2018 (US)

Starring: Emily Blunt, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Ben Whishaw, Emily Mortimer

What we know: Hot off the heels of Hamilton, Lin-Manuel Miranda is coming to the big screen in this sequel to the iconic family film, joined by Emily Blunt as the titular nanny. We've only seen a brief teaser so far, but it promises plenty of magic, music, and downright impractical methods of flying.


Bumblebee release date: 21 December 2018 (US), 26 December 2018 (UK)

Starring: Hailee Steinfeld, John Cena

What we know: Hailee Steinfeld is the star of the first Transformers spinoff, which takes the friendly little yellow Autobot Bumblebee and makes him a star - complete with a return to his original iconic yellow VW Beetle, rather than the slick sports car of the recent films. Even if you haven't been a fan of those movies, this actually looks pretty fun, with a lighter tone and smaller scale that should suit the franchise well.

How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World

How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World release date: 1 February 2019 (UK), 1 March 2019 (US)

Starring: Jay Baruchel, Cate Blanchett Gerard Butler, Kristen Wiig, Kit Harington

What we know: How to Train Your Dragon 3 promises to be the 'epic conclusion' to the trilogy (and TV series), as the vikings and dragons face another existential threat and, much more importantly, Toothless finds himself a girlfriend.

The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part

The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part release date: 8 February 2019

Starring: Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Banks, Alison Brie, Will Arnett

What we know: The Lego gang are back, doing their best to save a now-post-apocalyptic Earth (think Mad Max with more bricks) from a new alien threat. It looks just as silly as the last thing, with an even more star-studded cast of comedians, and we have very high hopes for this one.
