We're totally psyched for Christmas, but already looking forward to movies in 2018, which, among other things, will bring the story of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele to a close in Fifty Shades Freed, return us to the world of dinosaurs in Jurassic World 2, bring together The Avengers, the Guardians of the Galaxy and virtually every other Marvel superhero in Avengers: Infinity War; have Sandra Bullock and Rihanna lead the female heist film Ocean's 8, and so much more.
There are fantasies for the whole family like Oprah Winfrey in A Wrinkle in Time, a CG version of The Grinch, J.K. Rowling's Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindlewald, Mary Poppins Returns, and Winnie the Pooh's first excursion into the real world, Christopher Robin. Dramas, like the remake of A Star is Born that brings together Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga (which we really can't wait to see), the biopic based on Queen, Bohemian Rhapsody; and Jennifer Lawrence's spy thriller Red Sparrow. The return of old friends, including the cast of Mamma Mia!, Sylvester Stallone's Rocky Balboa, The Incredibles (yay!), Tom Cruise's Ethan Hunt in the latest Mission Impossible, and no less than five superheroes. Add to the mix one 70-foot great white shark and you've got the makings of one incredible year at the movies.
And to ring in the New Year, we've put together this guide to what's likely to be the hottest movies of 2018.
