In 2018, you waited with anticipation for Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War, Venom among others, and if you thought that was it, well get ready to set the date for the 2019 enthralling new movies. This year, you will get to know what happened next after Thanos ended half of humanity plus enjoy remakes and sequels of other marvelous movies.
There is so much in store for you to binge-watch and the bar has been set for 2019. That said, here is a round up of the top 10 movies to watch in 2019.
Kept under the wraps, there isn’t much known about Marvel’s Endgame. The studio, as it would seem, has kept its ending out of reach of everyone and there have been no leaks so far. Meanwhile, what we know is that the movie was shot back-to-back with Infinity War.
Also, the titan, the mad man, the greatest villain we know; Thanos, mercilessly reduced our favorite characters significantly. It is the endgame, and as you can recall from Infinity War, Doctor Strange said their chance of winning against Thanos was one in fourteen million. This means Black Widow, Hawkeye, Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, and Hulk are the pawns in the game alongside Ant-Man, Rocket Raccoon, War Machine, Okoye, Valkyrie, and Nebula.
So, what will happen to the rest? We will know in April. Endgame premiers in the UK and the US on April 26.
It may seem so far away, but we know the long wait to Christmas of 2019 is worth it when we want to catch up with the sequel of Star Wars, Episode IX. The anticipation is so great that enthusiasts can’t stop asking who Rey’s parents are, what will become of Finn and Rose, and if there is any chance of Kylo Ren making amends.
The episode might be an emotionally resonant one especially after J.J Abrams took the director’s chair again. And oh, maybe there is a chance you will see Princess Leia again.
The movie will premier on 20 December 2019.

Linda Hamilton is back in this film as Sarah Conor and while we may debate about who will be John Connor, let’s shush and wait until November 1, 2019.
Men in Black is back, only that this time it doesn’t feature Will Smith and Tommy Lee. This film features Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson as Agent H and Agent M, respectively. The two travel across the globe following a murder mystery. Well, the combination of the two is a thing of beauty, not with the charming smile of Tessa and Hemsworth, a man that women obsess about.

Ad Astra is another anticipated 2019 movie that you should wait for. It features Brad Pitt as he tracks his long-lost father Tommy Lee Jones through the solar system after he disappeared decades ago on a one-way trip to Neptune.
