Movies and TV shows are probably some of the most popular forms of entertainment of a modern person. Some movies even become iconic for millions of fans who wait for sequels every year. It is already known that a lot of really spectacular movies will be released next year along with the sequels of already successful ones. And almost all of the movies we are going to tell you about have an outstanding cast.

Bright Side has chosen 12 of the most highly-anticipated movies of the upcoming year. Don’t forget to save this article as a calendar of movie premiers in order not to miss anything!


  • Release date: January 18
  • Starring: James McAvoy, Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson, Sarah Paulson

This is the third movie of the universe created by the director M. Night Shyamalan. This is a sequel to a detective movie Unbreakable and the scary thriller Split. This movie will feature 3 main characters: a disabled terrorist named Elijah Price (nickname Mr. Glass), an aging superhero named David Dunn, and Kevin, a man who has a dissociative identity disorder. This time, Mr. Glass and Kevin will unite to fight their old enemies — David and Casey Cooke.

The cast is truly amazing and the trailer is captivating. We really want to know what happens and who wins because there are no good or bad characters and all of them make us feel anger and compassion.

How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World

  • Release date: February 22
  • Starring: Cate Blanchett, Jonah Hill, Kit Harington

A long-awaited sequel to a great fantasy animation that many children and adults once loved. In this part, Hiccup and Toothless will meet a mysterious Light Fury and will also encounter ruthless dragon hunters who will destroy everything that people care about unless they give away their dragon friends.

We are going to see a kind, original, and dynamic story. We’ll be able to watch The Hidden World in February and at the moment, there is a trailer.

Captain Marvel

  • Release date: March 8

Ex-US Air Force fighter pilot Carol Danvers acquires a superpower and becomes invincible after she encounters aliens during one of her flights. Now, the girl needs to learn more about her new superpower and find a way to control it in order to be able to fight against a terrible and powerful villain.

This is probably one of the most awaited superhero movies of 2019. It will be the first time when the story of another popular Marvel Universe character is told.

Godzilla: King of the Monsters

  • Release date: May 31
  • Starring: Millie Bobby Brown, Vera Farmiga, Kyle Chandler, Sally Hawkins

The crypto-zoological agency Monarch is doing everything it can to fight off gigantic monsters and not let them invade Earth. However, when the mighty Godzilla, who collides with Mothra, Rodan, and his ultimate nemesis, the 3-headed King Ghidorah, rise again, humanity is powerless. And all they can do is try not to die.

In the upcoming sequel of the 2014 movie, the viewers will see beautiful shots of fights, scary creatures, and a great cast. You are able to enjoy a part of this right now by watching the trailer.


  • Release date: March 29
  • Starring: Eva Green, Michael Keaton, Colin Farrell, Danny DeVito

Holt Farrier, a former circus star is hired to care for a newborn elephant. Dumbo has incredibly big ears, so Holt’s colleagues start mocking the poor elephant. But when they find out that the elephant can fly, it suddenly doesn’t seem as funny anymore. And the owner of the circus and an unusual businessman Vandemere are really interested in him: the former wants to earn money using the elephant and the latter wants to make the animal the main star of the show.

This fantasy film from Tim Burton will almost definitely make viewers fall in love with it. You don’t believe it? Try to watch the trailer and stay indifferent to cute Dumbo.

Captive State

  • Release date: March 29
  • Starring: John Goodman, Vera Farmiga, Ashton Sanders, Jonathan Majors

The movie is set in a Chicago suburb and tells about the life of local people who have been occupied by aliens for 10 years. The people are divided into 2 groups: some of them collaborate with the aliens, and others don’t and become rebels. The aliens are researching this complicated relationship and the people have to leave their problems behind and find ways to cooperate.

This American sci-fi thriller is a great choice for people who liked Rise of the Planet of the Apes. It is filmed by the same director Rupert Wyatt which means the movie will be really dynamic and beautiful.


  • Release date: April 5
  • Starring: Zachary Levi, Mark Strong, Djimon Hounsou, Asher Angel

And here is another interesting movie about superheroes but it’s funnier and much less serious. It tells the story of a funny DC character, a guy who protects his friend from bullies at school and learns to turn into an adult superhero by using just one word — “Shazam!”

The movie is really promising and it’s probably going to be very funny and kind. And of course, it will be full of cool action sequences and good jokes.

Pet Sematary

  • Release date: April 5
  • Starring: John Lithgow, Jason Clarke, Amy Seimetz

We remember the 1989 movie about a family that moved to a small town that is located really close to a pet cemetery and an Indian burial place. The movie is still one of the best screen adaptations of Stephen King’s books. Now, Paramount Pictures announced the release date of the remake of the horror film. It’s hard to imagine how to make the movie even scarier but the directors seem to be confident they can do it.

So, all the fans of Stephen King should be really happy: if all of the previous new movies didn’t impress you, this is a really good reason to go to the movies next year to get your portion of adrenaline.

Untitled Avengers Movie

  • Release date: May 3
  • Starring: Brie Larson, Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Benedict Cumberbatch, and others.

This sequel to Avengers: Infinity War that was released in 2018, and Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) will end the epic story of the Avengers and Thanos. The Avengers and the Guardians of the Galaxy will unite and start the last part of the war against Thanos who owns the Infinity Gauntlet and is a threat to all of humanity.

The final act of the war between the heroes and the villain will define their lives. There is no official trailer but we are sure the movie will be a blast.

John Wick 3: Parabellum

  • Release date: May 17
  • Starring: Keanu Reeves, Halle Berry, Ian McShane, Jason Mantzoukas

This is the 3rd movie telling about the life of John Wick. After the murder in the hotel, the clans are hunting John. He starts running and engages in a fight with the most dangerous hitmen on the planet — the best of his colleagues.

The first 2 parts are believed to be the most spectacular and stylish action scenes of the past 5 years. The shooting process of the next movie is going on right now and one of the main roles will be played by Halle Berry. The movie will be released on May 17. And we think it will be just as good as the previous 2 parts.

It: Chapter Two

  • Release date: September 6
  • Starring: Bill Skarsgård, Jessica Chastain, James McAvoy

As you have already noticed, 2019 is not only a great year for people who love superheroes but also for those who love Stephen King. In September, the second part of a popular horror movie will be released. The movie is set 27 years after the characters fought and defeated the clown Pennywise. They grew up and they live their lives but their calm existence was interrupted by a strange phone call that makes them all meet again. It is hunting again.

The new movie will feature a great cast and a new captivating story that will be as scary as the first part. By the way, the children who played the children in the first movie will do so in the second.


  • Release date: October 4
  • Starring: Joaquin Phoenix, Zazie Beetz, Robert De Niro

In October, we are going to see a promising action movie about one of the most popular DC Universe villains. It’s 1980 — Arthur is an unsuccessful comedian and he is a really shy person. He returns to Gotham after being away for a long time to take care of his old mother and to try to give his career a fresh start. It seems that everything is going to be fine but the motives as to why Arthur returns are not so clear and simple, because there is a secret in his past. The story of his family is somehow connected with that of the richest family of Gotham — the Wayne.

The shooting process is going on right now and you can easily find a lot of pictures from the set of Joker.

This short video with the leading actor Joaquin Phoenix as the Joker was posted by Todd Phillips (the director of the movie) on his personal Instagram page. Along with the dramatic description of the plot, it may seem that the director is either going to change the image of the character dramatically or show his sad story. It’s hard to be sure at this moment but we are really looking forward to seeing the movie!

Which of these movies are you looking forward to the most? Tell us in the comments section below.
