12 essential films coming in 2019
As summer draws to a close and we begin to sort of, but not really, drift away from the Disney-dominated blockbusters that have sprung up over the past few months, it’s time to look ahead. 2019 has had some great movies so far, from the record-breaking Avengers: Endgame through the emotional fourth installment of the Toy Story franchise to others such as Booksmart, Longshot, Shazam, and Us.
These films are, however, from the past. While they should be admired and, at the end of the year and the awards season, remember, it is time to look ahead; because the cinema in 2019 is far from over. Once Upon A Time In Hollywood and Hobbs And Shaw are currently filming; with many more to come in the coming months.
Please note, however, that these are just a handful of upcoming movies in 2019 that people should be excited about. Also, not all of these movies will open in the world in 2019, some may only open in certain regions, but they still qualify for this list.
A bold, spooky and claustrophobic black and white effort by Robert Eggers; the director of the hit The Witch. The flagship made its Cannes film debut earlier in 2019 and was immediately touted as one of the festival’s highlights and will debut in theaters in the fall.
With the announcement of Robert Pattinson taking the reins of the iconic Batman in Matt Reeves’ upcoming film, there have been critics of Pattinson. To portray him as just the guy from Twilight is wrong. Pattinson delivered great performances, like that of the movie Good Time. The flagship seems destined to add to this list and showcase more of Pattinsons’ true chops and acting skills, although it doesn’t need to prove itself.
Couple Pattinson with an acclaimed performance by Willem Dafoe and a dark if not downright spooky and frightening storyline, The Lighthouse appears to have boats of potential and is a film everyone should watch out for in the coming months; especially as awards season approaches.
