6. Avengers: End Game (Apr 26)

With a $14 million contract on his head, Wick is fighting his way out of New York city.

8. Men in Black: International (May 22)

Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson showed great onscreen chemistry in Thor: Ragnarok. So movie buffs should be looking forward for the pair in Men in Black: International.

A spin-off of the Men in Black (MIB) film series, the story follows a London-based team of MIB secret agents trying to solve a murder mystery while travelling around the world.

9. Aladdin (May 24)

For the past few years, Disney is all about live-action adaptation of its classic movies. So here is Aladdin directed by Guy Ritchie.

Although it is not out yet, the movie has already gathered more than enough criticism, especially for its casting.

The addition of a white character played by Billy Magnussen had people accusing them of whitewashing the film.

On top of that, the public was also unhappy that Princess Jasmine is being played by a non-Middle Eastern and Anglo Indian actress Naomi Scott.

To top it all, Marwan Kenzari was accused being too hot for the role of Jafar. (Although the thirst tweets following this reveal are hilarious.)

But as they say in Hollywood, there is no such thing as bad publicity.

10. Godzilla: King of the Monsters (May 31)

Godzilla: King of the Monsters is a sequel to the 2014 Godzilla movie.

According to the synopsis released by Warner Bros, Godzilla will fight Mothra, Rodan and his ultimate nemesis, the three-headed King Ghidorah.

11. X-Men: Dark Phoenix (June 6)

This movie made it to our last year’s list of movies to watch in 2018. What is it doing here again? It was previously set to be released on Nov 2019, then rescheduled to be released on Feb 14, 2019. Now it is scheduled for release on June 6 this year.

The plot follows nearly a decade after the events of X-Men: Apocalypse. The X-Men are now national heroes going on increasingly risky missions.

The conflict starts when a solar flare hitting them during a rescue mission in space and Jean Grey loses control of her power, unleashing the Phoenix.

12. Toy Story 4 (June 29)

Raise your hand if you thought Toy Story 3 (2010) was the last movie of this Pixar installment.

The film continues from the last movie where Sheriff Woody and Buzz Lightyear after Andy gave them to Bonnie Anderson.

13. Spiderman: Far From Home (July 5)

14. The Lion King (July 19)

If you love the 1994 The Lion King, then you must put this movie on your Hollywood movies to watch in 2019.

And if you watched the trailer then you know it is a photorealistic computer animated remake of the 1994 film.

15. Joker (Oct 4)

DC Comics fans might have high expectations on this movie as it is the first film separate from the DC Extended Universe.

Moreover, movie fans are looking forward to see Joaquin Phoenix’s performance as the Joker.

16. Kingsman 3 (Nov 8)

Ladies if you have not heard the news, we are sorry to announce that Taron Egerton aka Eggsy will not be in this movie.

So what is Kingsman without Eggsy? Now we have to watch just to find out.

17. Jumanji 3 (Dec 13)
