This movie looks like a very interesting mashup of a ton of pop culture of the last 25 or so years. A video game designer passes away but leaves an Easter egg in the virtual reality of Oasis. The first person to find it gets half a trillion dollars and inherits his empire. There are plenty of evil forces that want the egg that star Tye Sheridan must defeat to get to it first.
Black Panther – Release date: Febr. 16, 2018: The next installment of the Marvel saga follows T’Challa (Black Panther) as he returns home to Wakanda to claim the throne after the death of his father, as seen in Civil War.

Avengers: Infinity War – Release date: May 4, 2018: A decade of Marvel movies has led to a confrontation between the Avengers and Thanos.

Any movie fan has to be pretty excited watching some of these trailers. The deck looks pretty stacked for 2018 and there are plenty of choices that looked like they could be excellent movies on the docket.
