A boy is given the ability to become an adult superhero in times of need with a single magic word.
Beyond the synopsis: This is the other Captain Marvel, whom I affectionately describe as a mix of Superman, Bananaman and SuperTed. This Captain Marvel is a member of the DC Extended Universe and will be played by Zachary Levi.
Disneynature’s all-new feature film “Penguins” is a coming-of-age story about an Adélie penguin named Steve who joins millions of fellow males in the icy Antarctic spring on a quest to build a suitable nest, find a life partner and start a family. None of it comes easily for him, especially considering he's targeted by everything from killer whales to leopard seals, who unapologetically threaten his happily ever after.
Plot is unknown.
Beyond the synopsis: It’s positioned to expand the world of MiB in the same way that Jurassic World expanded that franchise. Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones aren’t expected to return to reprise their roles, but brief cameos from them or other characters haven't been ruled out.
A live-action retelling of the 1992 Disney film of the same name.
Beyond the synopsis: The cast has been announced as Mena Massoud as Aladdin and Naomi Scott as Jasmine, with Will Smith taking on the role of The Genie. During Disney's CinemaCon presentation, the cast emphasized that they were being respectful of the original whilst still trying something new, and that they are NOT trying to "replace" the late Robin Williams.
The movie will follow the 2016 blockbuster about the lives our pets lead after we leave for work or school each day.
Beyond the synopsis: Harrison Ford will also be lending his voice to the film, his first animated feature film work ever (and first animated role since he voiced Han Solo in a cartoon portion of the Star Wars Holiday Special).
Beyond the synopsis: Arnold Schwarzenegger will be reuniting with Linda Hamilton (the original Sarah Connor) and he will be fully embracing his age with an older, more weathered looking T-800. James Cameron will also be taking charge once again, with Deadpool director Tim Miller at the helm, putting the franchise back in safe hands. Cameron has publicly dismissed the last three films as a "bad dream", potentially making Terminator 6 a direct, canon sequel to Terminator 2.
An over-the-hill hitman faces off against a younger clone of himself.
Beyond the synopsis: What we know so far sounds like a cross between 'The 6th Day' and 'Looper'. However, unlike the latter film where the main character was played by both Bruce Willis and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Will Smith will be playing both roles with CGI being employed to make his clone appear as a younger-looking version of himself. Given that Will Smith ages almost as slowly as Sir Patrick Stewart, the de-aging CGI being used will likely look quite convincing.
Until we find out more, I'm potentially billing this as "Deadshot goes on the hunt to kill The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air".
A group of humans join the Green Lantern Corps, an alien interstellar police force that protects the universe.
Beyond the synopsis: The Green Lanterns will finally be joining the DC Extended Universe, and the pressure will be on for DC to prove that they've finally learned from their mistakes from their previous Green Lantern movie.
Many years after the "Sixty Minute War," cities survive a now desolate Earth by moving around on giant wheels attacking and devouring smaller towns to replenish their resources.
Beyond the synopsis: Full disclosure; I wasn't particularly won over by the trailer when I first saw it. I immediately dismissed it because to me it just looked like a rehash of 'Waterworld' but on wheels. My friend Liam has since informed me that it's a book adaption by Peter Jackson and, like The Lord of the Rings, is another one of his dream projects. Given how spectacular his passion for and production of LOTR was, I'm now intrigued enough to add it to the list and give it a shot.
On the eve of D-Day, a group of American paratroopers is dropped behind enemy lines to carry out a mission crucial to the invasion’s success. But as they approach their target, they begin to realize there is more going on in this Nazi-occupied village than a simple military operation.
Beyond the synopsis: Following his surprise anthology sequel announcement by dropping a trailer for 'The Cloverfield Paradox' during Super Bowl LII with the news that it would be arriving on Netflix immediately after the match, it turns out that J.J. Abrams had already finished filming Cloverfield 4 as well. This is Cloverfield 4. And it's being released just 8 months after Cloverfield 3. What is happening?!
Venom casts Eddie Brock in his classic role as a not-particular-nice investigative reporter, who is looking into rumours around the Life Foundation, a shady bio-med company that has been testing an alien lifeform on vulnerable 'volunteers'.
After breaking into their lab, Eddie becomes infected, and starts developing some strange powers and hearing a demonic voice that speaks in his head.
Beyond the synopsis: The heads of Marvel Studios and Sony have been contradicting each other over whether Venom would exist alongside Tom Holland's Spider-Man. Holland won't be in Venom, and although the film has no other connection to the MCU, Sony chief Amy Pascal said that Spider-Man and Venom operate in the same world, and that one day their paths could cross. Given that Spider-Man has previously always been a pivotal part of Venom's origin story, it will be interesting to see what story they have in mind.
A group of men get stranded in a jungle with a beast of whom they do not speak. One by one, they go missing and skinned bodies are found in trees. Then, when the only survivor of a previous beast encounter appears, they realise they are in worse trouble than they thought...
