10 Sci-fi thrillers you cannot miss in 2018
Unlike in 2017, this year Hollywood will release some exciting films, some of it already bound to become Sci-Fi thrillers movies. This year it will be released a few prequels and other most expected sequels, and some new films filled with fresh stories and others no so fresh but despite that will probably become blockbuster films, if not because of the screenplay, for the great actors, the amazing special effects and CGI scenes for sure will blow your mind. Without further ado, the list:
1 Maze Runner – The Death Cure
Release date: January 26th
If you didn´t see 2014´s Maze Runner, I strongly recommend you do. This sequel has it all, story, acting and excitement.
2 Black Panther
Release date: February 16th
One of the most expected films of the Marvel universe. The story of Wakanda’s king and protector. The story timeline happens after Captain America: Civil War and before Avengers: Infinity Wars. Great Story, a lot of action. Definitely, a MUST see.
Release date: February 23th
Starring Oscar´s winner Natalie Porter, it’s nothing like you have ever seen. Finally a new story in quite a while. Promises to become a good surprise.
4 Pacific Rim – Uprising
Release date: March 23th
I admit, at first 2013´s Pacific Rim didn´t convince me, but then I remembered my childhood and the great Japanese TV series like Ultraman, and all made sense. I think people will enjoy this film better than the prequel because some of the characters of the first film repeat on this and I believe there is some kind of continuance, and you won´t spend the whole movie trying to set a context because you already have it from the prequel.
5 Ready Player One
Release date: March 29th
Be forewarned, this film has all the right ingredients, fresh and unexpected story, amazing director: Steven Spielberg; Awesome soundtrack and serious acting. Anything else could become a spoiler.
Release date: April 20th
I´m not very convinced by the story but is “The Rock” Dwayne Johnson starring and that can never go wrong, at least so far.
7 Avengers: Infinity Wars
Release date: May 4th
Some people say this is the final chapter of the avenger´s saga, I hope not. However, this film certainly will put together the entire marvel superheroes presented so far, which promises many action scenes and answer a few questions left unanswered on purpose in the prequels, allowing us to understand the big picture on the main story. Huge expectations on this one.
8 Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom
Release date: June 8th
This is a cult movie. Not my kind of movie. I think after the first Jurassic Park, the most interesting thing I saw on a Jurassic Park film, was the sphere that allows people to travel around the island without getting themselves injured, besides that, not even the acting of Chris Pratt. Nevertheless, for those of you who like it, good luck with it.
9 Ant-Man And The Wasp
Release date: July 6th
I still don´t understand why if these superheroes were regular in the comic books and the animated series, they have been relegated to be screened after Avengers: Infinity Wars, which means they get invited to that party, bummer!!!. One can only hope. However, there´s a lot of action in this one and mind-blowing scenes that I´m sure it´ll make it a great superheroes movie.
10 Alita – Battle Angel
Release date: July 19th
Last but not least, this amazing film. Check it out: Produced by James Cameron and directed by Robert Rodriguez, both science fiction and action film gods. Every movie they have ever made on their own became a reference for what a great action-sci-fi thriller must show. For sure, this movie has no waste.
