“The Irishman” and “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood”: 100 movies to look forward to in 2019

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to 2019! First of all, as always I want to wish every single one of you a very hearty and sincere Happy New Year. Hopefully you all had a fun and safe sendoff to the dumpster fire that was 2018. A whole new year is now upon us, and as such, there’s a ton of new films to anticipate. Fun times, right? Today will be a day to look forward, which is no particularly uncommon in early January. Indeed, there’s a whole slate of titles emerging in the weeks and months to come, so that’s what we’ll be focusing on. Even just in the coming days, we’ll see 2019 releases begin to overtake 2018 expansions. There will be some rather rough times as studios dump their lesser projects, but look to the independent flicks for saving graces until the bigger films begin to come out, many of which are on the list I present to you today!

Below you will be able to see a fairly heaping dose of 2019 releases that are well worth keeping an eye out for. There’s a bunch of indies, a ton of blockbusters, and plenty in between. There’s some Oscar hopefuls like The Irishman and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, as well as another Star Wars outing from the main saga, not to mention Avengers: Endgame. It’s looking like a pretty solid year, though there’s no way to really know just yet. As you go down the list, you’ll see a real wide variety of things. It’s not an exhaustive list, obviously, and it’s no more than the 100 I put out last year, but I did the best that I could. Give it a close look and enjoy:

Basically, much like we had last year (and other years past), this is just one big guess/shot in the dark at the moment. There’s no real way to tell what smaller films will break through, especially with many of them still in the process of filming right now. This time two years ago, no one was really thinking about Lady Bird, for example. Last year, Green Book sort of came out of nowhere. Contenders like that will emerge throughout the year. First up will be the Sundance Film Festival later on this month, where plenty of indie contenders will emerge. Last year, Sorry To Bother You first popped up there, for example. Then, it’ll be on to the rest of the year. Sit back and try to enjoy 2019. Above are 100 examples of things that might tickle your fancy. It should be an interesting year, at the very least…

Stay tuned to see how 2019 goes for all of these titles!
