2018 Movies Preview – WLTZ

Big Blockbusters Coming

Hollywood is rolling out a huge slate of big screen blockbusters in 20-18. Rick Damigella has a preview of some of the biggest movies headed to theaters this year.

If a movie theater is your home away from home, get comfy in that seat, because Hollywood is unleashing some major blockbusters this year, starting with “Black Panther,” the last movie leading up to Marvel’s “Infinity War” event. “Black Panther” hits screens February 16th.

“Be a warrior!”

“I’ll try.”

“A Wrinkle in Time,” directed by Ava Duvernay, kicks off a very busy month at the movies starting March 9th.

“What’s your name?”




Oscar winner Alicia Vikander steps into the boots of Lara Croft in “Tomb Raider,” in a reboot of the franchise based on the video game series. “Tomb Raider” begins plundering theaters March 16th.

“There’s nowhere left to go. Nowhere except the oasis.”

Steven Spielberg’s “Ready Player One” aims to immerse audiences in its virtual reality game world. It’s game on March 30th.

“Let’s go save the world.”

“It’s coming back to me.”

The video-game-themed movies trend continues on April 20th when Dwayne Johnson faces off against the oversized creatures of “Rampage.”

“Dread it. Run from it. Destiny still arrives.”

What began nearly ten years ago with the release of “Iron Man” culminates on May 4th with “Avengers: Infinity War.” The movie promises to bring together characters from throughout the Marvel cinematic universe in what will undoubtedly be one of the biggest movies of the year.

Everyone’s favorite Wookie is in theaters now, but look for Chewbacca to return May 25th when “Solo: A Star Wars Story,” makes the Kessel Run into theaters.

“These creatures were here before us. If we’re not careful, they’re going to be here after.”

Life finds a way, again, in “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.” The follow up to the 2015 blockbuster roars onto movie screens June 22nd.

“What is that?”

“That is London.”

Set in a post-apocalyptic world where entire cities have become mobile in an effort to survive, “Mortal Engines” was co-written by Peter Jackson and rolls into theaters December 14th.
