New Year, New Movies: 5 Films Coming Out in 2018

By Ashley Logan on January 5, 2018

You know how people on social media always say “New Year, New Me” when the ball drops? Well, the movie industry says the same thing.

In 2018, Pixar is rolling out the sequels we have been waiting for including Incredibles 2 as well as Wreck-It Ralph 2. If you’re not as into animated movies as I am, don’t fret, there’s much more than just kiddie flicks to be excited about! Besides the movies I mentioned already, there are a few more too keep an eye out for.

Here are 5 movies to check out in 2018:


1. The Incredibles 2 (June 15, 2018)


I know that I and all of my fellow 20-something’s are beyond excited for The Incredibles 2. I mean, we have been waiting for 14 years now. The teaser trailer lets us all know that the story will pick up right from the first Incredibles movie. We’ll finally get to see what powers baby Jack Jack really has.

2. Black Panther (February 16, 2018)


Marvel’s Black Panther has had the internet roaring since the first trailer came out. This movie is critically acclaimed and hasn’t even come out yet. I wonder what type of magic this all-black cast will bring to our movie screens. Most of the excitement about this film is because of the star-studded black cast that isn’t really seen in many films today. It’s refreshing to be able to see people like me on the big screen.


3. A Wrinkle in Time (March 9, 2018)


A Wrinkle In Time is director Ava Duvernay’s latest project, besides the Jay-Z “Family Feud” video. This movie is an adaptation of the novel “A Wrinkle in Time” by Madeleine L’Engle. This movie has a reputation to uphold, considering it is an Ava Duvernay project, and Oprah Winfrey is in it. There are obviously more reasons to check this film out, it looks pretty cool!


4. Ocean’s 8 (June 8, 2018)


Let’s face it, the main reason most people want to see this movie is because of Rihanna. Rihanna, an icon, makes everything cool. The Ocean’s movie franchise has proven to deliver a comedic action-packed repertoire, with this being the fourth installment in the series. American Horror Story‘s Sarah Paulson is also in this movie which is something else to look forward to.


5. Wreck-It Ralph 2 (November 28, 2018)


We have to wait a little longer for this sequel to arrive in theaters but I’m sure it will be worth the wait with a title like Ralph Breaks the Internet. This title reminds me of Kim Kardashian’s infamous “break the internet” slogan she uses, which is where they may have gotten the idea from. The first Wreck-It Ralph was really cute and showed the power of friendship and trusting yourself, so I’m sure this one will have a good message too.

What are some movies that you want to see this year?
