Most Anticipated Movies
2017 is behind us. While many argue that it was a mediocre year in cinema, I believe that it wasn’t as bad as people might think it to be. Especially, when you think in terms of stories that we got to see last year, 2017 was in ways more than one a landmark year. Many of the best movies of last year were told from female perspective. ‘Lady Bird’, ‘Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri’ and ‘A Ghost Story are some of the examples. With that said, now is the time to look ahead.
How will 2018 pan out? What are the interesting movies coming out in 2018? Which actors and directors are going to be prominent this year?
If you have all those questions, worry not! We have done all the hard work for you. Here is the first part of the list consisting of few movies.
Director: Damien Chazelle
Starring: Ryan Gosling, Claire Foy, Corey Stoll, Kyle Chandler, Jason Clarke, Shea Whigham, Jon Bernthal, Brian D’Arcy James, Pablo Shceiber
Synopsis: A look at the life of the astronaut, Neil Armstrong, and the legendary space mission that lead him to become the first man to walk on the moon on July 20, 1969.
Why is it anticipated?: There’s an avalanche of reasons why I’m asked for ‘First Man’ and the biggest one is Damien Chazelle, whose last two films ‘Whiplash’ and ‘LA LA Land’ have moved and mesmerised me to no limit. Him chronicling the story of one of 20th Century’s most iconic personalities with the stellar Ryan Gosling in the lead as well as Claire Foy Queen Elizabeth from The Crown) is cinephile’s wet dream.
2. The Irishman
Director: Martin Scorsese
Starring: Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Joe Pesci, Harvey Keitel
Synopsis: A Mob hitman recalls his possible involvement with the slaying of Jimmy Hoffa.
Why is it anticipated?: Martin Scorsese. Arguably, the greatest living director. Robert De Niro and Al Pacino. Two of the greatest living actors. The only reason this film is not at No.1 is because of the tiny possibility that it might not release this year. Irrespective of when it releases our excitement is through the roof.

Starring: Javier Bardem, Penelope Cruz, Barbara Lennie, Ricardo Darin, Inma Cuesta, Eduard Fernandez, Javier Camara
