Elliott Cundieff, Reporter

2019 is a year that everyone in the world has been looking forward to. Everyone is ready to do new activities, are excited for their favorite artists to finally release some new music, and are ready to watch some new films! 2019 looks like another great year for new films artistically and financially. It seems like almost every genre this 2019 will have an amazing year.

Of course what everyone is looking forward to this year cinematically is the Disney comeback with the live action version of The Lion King and with the long-waited Toy Story 4. No doubt that those two films look great and should be amazing, but a movie that is being looked away from too much by most fans is the live action version of Disney’s Dumbo, which will be in theaters this March. Dumbo looks like a movie that will be a better film and will have a much bigger impact on the world and society than both The Lion King and Toy Story 4. Dumbo is for sure a must see this Spring.

The horror genre will again, seemingly, have an amazing year financially this 2019. Movies like The Curse of La Llorona and Happy Death Day 2U will most likely have great commercial success at the box office, but will not be good films and will most likely be forgotten in the coming years. Although there are a lot of horror movies coming out that will not be good films, there are some very interesting horror films to come out this 2019. Horror movies to watch out for this year are Pet Sematary, Us, The Prodigy, and It: Chapter Two.

This past year, a movie about the iconic band Queen, by the name of Bohemian Rhapsody came out, and had huge box office success and also was a very great film. This Summer, a similar styled movie is coming out about the iconic and great musician Elton John, which will be named after one of his greatest songs, Rocketman.

Another super anticipated movie coming out this year is the third and final edition to M. Night Shyamalan’s comic book/hero trilogy, Glass. This movie will be the last movie in the trilogy coming after Unbreakable (2000) and Split (2016). This movie will most likely have huge box office success considering the first two movies in the trilogy are two highly acclaimed films.


Going to the theaters and watching movies has always been a huge tradition here in the United States and it seems like it will be another great year cinematically. Although many of these anticipated movies are coming out later in the year, the Academy Awards are coming up soon that will hopefully introduce many people to new great movies that they can watch in their own house! Everyone should look forward to seeing a lot of new movies this year!
