From Ocean’s 8 to Crazy Rich Asians, 2018 is filled with ensemble films bursting with talented casts and fantastic plots. Here are the ones we are counting down the days to:
Avengers: Infinity War
Still not over Black Panther? Chadwick Boseman returns in the superhero blockbuster, along with all your favourites including Robert Downey Jr as Iron Man, Benedict Cumberbatch as Dr Strange, as Nebula—all three of whom will be heading to Singapore for a red-carpet fan event together with director Joe Russo on April 16.
Avengers: Infinity Wars is out in theatres on April 25.
Since news of the movie was released, the internet has been divided on its reaction to the idea of the heist franchise being rebooted with an all-new female cast, led by Sandra Bullock as Debbie Ocean, Danny Ocean’s sister. But with a star-studded cast like Rihanna, Sarah Paulson, Cate Blanchett, Mindy Kaling, Anne Hathaway, Awkwafina and Helena Bonham Carter, we’re willing to bet that it is going to be, well, everything.
Ocean’s 8 is out in theatres on June 7.
Crazy Rich Asians
A book written by a Singaporean, about Singapore, as a major Hollywood film? To say that we have been lapping up any and every morsel of information about the movie adaptation of Kevin Kwan’s bestselling book is an understatement. (Seriously, when is the trailer coming out?) Henry Golding and Constance Wu lead the cast as Nick Young and Rachel Chu, along with local names like Fiona Xie, Pierre Png, Selena Tan, Tan Kheng Hua, Janice Koh and Amy Cheng.
Crazy Rich Asians is out in theatres on August 17.
X-Men: Dark Phoenix
After a mission to space goes awry, the X-Men must save the world from the wrath of the Phoenix: Jean Grey’s ultra-powerful alter ego, as played by Sophie Turner. Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Jessica Chastain, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy and more make up the returning ensemble cast.
X-Men: Dark Phoenix is out in theatres on November 2.
Written by Gone Girl‘s Gillian Flynn and 12 Years a Slave director Steve McQueen, Widows is a 2018 update of a 1980s British series. Starring Viola Davis, Cynthia Erivo, Elizabeth Debicki and Michelle Rodriguez as the titular widows who step in to finish off a crime that their husbands got killed trying to pull off, the heist film also stars Daniel Kaluuya, Colin Farrell and Liam Neeson.
Widows is out in theatres on November 16.
