Us

A family’s serenity turns to chaos when a group of doppelgängers begins to terrorize them.

Jordan Peele knocked it out of the park with Get Out, let’s see if this sketch comedian-turned horror director can do it again.

Dumbo

A young elephant, whose oversized ears enable him to fly, helps save a struggling circus, but when the circus plans a new venture, Dumbo and his friends discover dark secrets beneath its shiny veneer.

The next installment in Disney’s attempts to recreate their classics into live-action. I was never a huge fan of Animal Abuse: The Movie when it was a cartoon, but there is a cool cast attached, with Danny DeVito, Michael Keaton, and Colin Farrell.

Shazam!

We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson’s case, by shouting out one word – SHAZAM! – this streetwise 14-year-old foster kid can turn into the adult superhero Shazam.

Worlds of DC had a rough start there, but with Wonder Woman being amazing, and Aquaman being fun, it seems they are headed in a new and exciting direction, and I’m excited for SHAZAM!

Hellboy

Based on the graphic novels by Mike Mignola, Hellboy, caught between the worlds of the supernatural and human, battles an ancient sorceress bent on revenge.

For many, Ron Perlman was the definitive Hellboy, and this new costume looks like Hellboy has been recovering from meth. But I love David Harbour from Stranger Things to Tide Ads, so I’m willing to give this Dark Horse Comic movie a shot.

Penguins

The story of Steve, an Adélie penguin, on a quest to find a life partner and start a family. When Steve meets with Wuzzo the emperor penguin they become friends. But nothing comes easy in the icy Antarctic.

With two comic book movies the last two weeks, and a big one next week, maybe you need a penguin documentary as a palate cleanser. Nothing wrong with that.

Avengers: Endgame

After the devastating events of Avengers: Infinity War, the universe is in ruins. With the help of remaining allies, the Avengers assemble once more in order to undo Thanos’ actions and restore order to the universe.

You know you’re going to watch it. I know you’re going to watch it. This is just an excuse to watch that trailer again.

May 3

UglyDolls

An animated adventure in which the free-spirited UglyDolls confront what it means to be different, struggle with a desire to be loved, and ultimately discover who you truly are is what matters most.

Didn’t want to take the kids to watch you cry at Avengers? They’re feeling left out? Time to go watch UglyDolls.

Pokémon Detective Pikachu

In a world where people collect Pokémon to do battle, a boy comes across an intelligent talking Pikachu who seeks to be a detective.

I know it says it’s rated PG, but ever since Deadpool, I just can’t hear Ryan Reynolds’ voice without thinking about him being shot, with a gun, up the butthole.

Tolkien

Tolkien explores the formative years of the orphaned author as he finds friendship, love and artistic inspiration among a group of fellow outcasts at school.

Any Tolkien die-hard is going to go watch this BioPic about this amazing author. Definitely going to have a bit more sustance than animated Pikachu.

John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum

Super-Assassin John Wick (Keanu Reeves) is on the run after killing a member of the international assassin’s guild, and with a $14 million price tag on his head – he is the target of hit men and women everywhere.

If only they hadn’t killed his dog.

Aladdin

When a street urchin finds a lamp with a genie inside, he uses the lamp to turn himself into a prince in order to win the heart of a beautiful princess. But an evil vizier is after the lamp too.

The second live action Disney remake on this list. Between you and me, I’m not going to be excited for one of these until they do Atlantis or Treasure Planet.

Brightburn

What if a child from another world crash-landed on Earth, but instead of becoming a hero to mankind, he proved to be something far more sinister?

EVIL SUPERMAN! YES!

Godzilla: King of the Monsters

The crypto-zoological agency Monarch faces off against a battery of god-sized monsters, including the mighty Godzilla, who collides with Mothra, Rodan, and his ultimate nemesis, the three-headed King Ghidorah.

It took the entire last movie until the last 10 minutes to even show Godzilla, but Kong: Skull Island was great, so let’s get a better look at Godzilla before they go head-to-head next year.

June 7

Dark Phoenix

Jean Grey begins to develop incredible powers that corrupt and turn her into a Dark Phoenix. Now the X-Men will have to decide if the life of a team member is worth more than all the people living in the world.

I mean, I know that the timeline is entirely destroyed at this point, but wasn’t this just X-3? When is New Mutants coming out!?!

June 14

Men in Black: International

The Men in Black have always protected the Earth from the scum of the universe. In this new adventure, they tackle their biggest threat to date: a mole in the Men in Black organization.

Hemsworth and Thompson had some fun chemistry in Ragnarok, and the old movies were fun, so why not?

Toy Story 4

When a new toy called “Forky” joins Woody and the gang, a road trip alongside old and new friends reveals how big the world can be for a toy.

Here’s where you gotta be careful. This weekend there are two movies about talking children’s toys, but one of them wants to kill you. If you are like me, you are going to the Pixar one, not Child’s Play.

What movie are you most excited for? Let us know in the comments below!
