With Avengers: Endgame being released, a lot of other movies have been overshadowed. The movie made two billion worldwide, and is the second highest grossing movie, just behind Avatar. If you’ve already seen Endgame (or are just not interested in it), but still want to look forward to seeing a movie, then think about checking out these five upcoming films.
1. Detective Pikachu – May 10th
This movie is coming out May 10th, and is the first live-action Pokémon movie. A lot of people are excited to see how their favorite Pokémon fair in real life. Detective Pikachu’s storyline involves a Pikachu, played by Ryan Reynolds, only the main character, played by Justice Smith, can hear talk. It’s a mystery movie that promise’s to entertain you from beginning to end.
2. Brightburn – May 24th
Brightburn is introducing a new genre to films: superhero horror. It is about a boy who crash lands on Earth with superpowers. But instead of being like, say, Superman, who helps the world, he becomes a villain. He uses his powers for bad. Brightburn is directed by James Gunn, who has done excellent work on Guardians of the Galaxy, and will hopefully give the same heart to this movie which looks like a good spring horror film.
3. John Wick Chapter 3 – May 17th
This is the third installment of the John Wick films, and promises to delight the viewers of the first two. The John Wick films were received well, and if you’ve seen the first two then this one will most likely delight you. If you haven’t seen the first two films then it’s not too late to catch up, and go see the third when it comes out.
4. Godzilla: King of the Monsters – May 31st
Godzilla is a movie franchise dating back to 1954 in Japan. With this new movie however, Godzilla is not the only monster. The movie’s plot is just a big monster battle. If monsters aren’t your thing then maybe consider that Millie Bobby Brown, a fan favorite who played Eleven in Stranger Things, stars in this May release.
5. Spider-Man: Far From Home – July 2nd
Be careful before watching the trailer to this movie if you have yet to see Endgame, it contains a spoiler! Far From Home is the sequel to Homecoming, the Spider-Man movie starring Tom Holland as the title character that released in July of 2017. These Spider-Man films feature a high school Peter Parker. The film’s plot features Spider-Man going up against Nick Fury in Europe. The previous Spider-Man movie was well received as this one is sure to be too.
