#1. Those who left Split absolutely buzzing at the hint of a Shyamalan-iverse were thrilled when it was announced that Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson would be joined by James McAvoy for this crossover named for Jackson’s Unbreakable villain, Mr. Glass.
#2. Bryan Cranston and Kevin Hart star in this Paul Feig-scripted remake of the French hit The Intouchables, a feelgood dramedy about an ex-con who forms an unlikely bond with the paralyzed man who hires him as his caregiver.
#3. This gender-swapped take on the Mel Gibson comedy What Women Want sees Taraji P. Henson playing a sports agent who can hear what the men in her industry are thinking. And, we suspect, she won’t take no s–t from any of them.
#4. Plot details are still few and far between at this point, but we know that Jordan Peele is writing and directing another thriller as a follow-up to his 2017 smash hit Get Out. It will star Lupita Nyong’o, Elizabeth Moss, and Black Panther‘s Winston Duke among others, which already makes this sound like a really promising project.
#5.Hot off his two horror hits Lights Out and Annabelle: Creation, director David F. Sandberg picked up the reins to this DC superhero flick, about a teen who receives the power to transform into an adult hero with the powers of super-strength, flight, and more. Fourteen-year-old Billy Batson will be played by Asher Angel, while Chuck‘s Zachary Levi stars as Shazam himself.
#6. Based on the popular line of plush toys, this animated musical film stars Kelly Clarkson as one of the titular creatures, who venture from their side of the mountain where they live to the other side, where the residents of a town called Perfection make them realize how different they are. Expect lots of lively music and colorful visuals as it goes up against Detective Pikachu the same weekend.
#7. Disney’s supremely lucrative live-action adaptations project continues unabated, with this update of the 1992 animated classic. Mena Massoud has been cast as Street Rat #1 Aladdin, with Naomi Scott as Princess Jasmine. Will Smith is the Genie this time, with director Guy Ritchie making his family entertainment debut.
#8. The X-Men franchise — not counting solo joints starring Logan and Deadpool — hit something of a speed bump with 2016’s X-Men: Apocalypse, but it looks to rebound with one of the most popular stories from the comics, centered on the character of Jean Grey (Sophie Turner). Producer Simon Kinberg makes his directorial debut, while James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, and the rest of the younger mutants return for this fourth entry in the soft-rebooted series that began with X-Men: First Class.
#9. Thor and Valkyrie reunite in the latest Marvel epic! No, we’re not talking about Avengers: Episode IV – Rise of Squirrel Girl, but the fourth Men in Black installment, which reunites Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson in another ancillary Marvel comic book movie. And it’s a new day for the franchise; Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones will not be involved with this one.
#10. Separate from the other Joker movie that will see Jared Leto reprising the character he played in 2016’s Suicide Squad, this origin story for the Clown Prince of Crime will star multiple Oscar nominee Joaquin Phoenix as the titular criminal mastermind with Todd Phillips (Old School, The Hangover trilogy) set to direct. Robert De Niro and Atlanta and Deadpool 2 star Zazie Beetz are also both currently in talks to co-star.
