2018 Sequels That Are 2 Good To Wait For

2018 beholds a giant bundle of sequels for the cinema-loving world, and we’re seriously stoked. From Pixar films to horror movies, it’s time for take two…or three…or six (hello Mission Impossible) of some of our faves; we’re ready for a binge sesh. A warning, though: when we say there’s a giant bundle of sequels to be released this year…we mean a GIANT bundle. This list is big, real big, but it ain’t all of ‘em. That would take us…well long enough that we’d have to make a sequel post.

Incredibles 2


No doubt this one will be just as Incredible. We’ve missed our favorite superhero family and, mostly, Edna Mode.


Insidious: The Last Key


Firstly, bonus points for not naming this fourth installment “Insidious: Chapter 4” like the last two sequels were unimaginatively named. The movie looks awesome and based on the trailer, it’s set to have yet another creepy AF score behind it.


Avengers: Infinity War


You’ll never see us complain about more Avengers films. Bring. On. The. Avengers. Also they really teased us with all the Comic-Con stuff last year, so we’re damn ready to watch this film!


Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation


We’re ready to sink our teeth into this one (pun intended). Hotel Transylvania 2 was killer (OK, last lame pun), so we definitely have high hopes for take 3.




If you’d asked us our thoughts about this 6 months ago – we’d say “good luck following in the footsteps of John Carpenter AND Rob Zombie”. But now that Jamie Lee Curtis is on board, we’re sold. If she’s on board, we’re on board.


Ant-Man and the Wasp


Yes, yes 10000% yes. Ant-Man was fantastic and we have no doubt the sequel will be too. And if you’re not into it, you still get to stare at Paul Rudd for a few hours, you can never have too much Paul Rudd.


The Strangers: Prey at Night


We’re definitely intrigued by this one. The OG “The Strangers” was obviously a classic and we’d be lying if we said we didn’t want one of those masks for ourselves (creepy but also so f*cking cool!). The trailer looks awesome – so we’ll see…


M:I 6 – Mission Impossible


Tom Cruise is still kickin’? Power to him and fingers crossed he doesn’t break his back whilst climbing skyscrapers. But should he fall, it’s all good, because Superman (aka Henry Cavill) is in the cast and has sick catching-people-falling-from-great-heights skills.


X-Men: Dark Phoenix


The name alone is so badass. And they threw Jessica Chastain into the mix to add to the baddass-ness (and her character name is literally “Smith”. Step aside, James Bond). Anyhow, this one will be sooo good.


Deadpool 2


Hell. Yes. Ryan Reynolds is back and so nothing can go wrong. Way stoked about this film and all of the sexual innuendos it’ll have to offer.


Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom


Chris Pratt is killin’ it with the blockbusters! If you’re starting to come down from your ‘Guardians of the Galaxy 2’ high, don’t worry, because JW2 (Jurassic World 2) is a’comin’.


The Predator


Yaaas, a sequel to the infamous Predator series. We got Alien Covenant this year, The Predator for 2018, so perhaps a resurrection of Alien v Predator in 2019? We’ll see.


The Purge: The Island


We have a pretty good idea about what the overall plot is here – and so do you if you’ve ever watched a “The Purge” film and can imagine that…on an island. Not talking smack about it though, we have high hopes for it after the box office success of “The Purge: Election Year”

The purge

Mary Poppins Returns


Well… it’s not Julie Andrews, but that’s no reason not to have high hopes for the Disney sequel. Plus, Dick Van Dyke is set to star in the film, so all is well.


Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again


Here we go again! Oh yeah! We can’t wait for a sing along sesh and all of the Amanda Seyfried gorgeousness (and Cher, you can never have too much Cher).


Creed II


Well, at least they’re not bamboozling us with Roman Numerals so high you have to Google them to remind yourself what number Rocky you’re on ….VIII?! But let’s be real, the OG Creed was amazing and we all know it. SO the sequel better be good.


Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2


Ralph just about broke the internet when news spread about this, so it’s probably safe to say that this one will be a…smash hit?!


Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald


Yaasssss J.K. Rowling fans rejoice! Have you even SEEN the recently released pics of this film? Looks. Freaking. Perfect.


Goosebumps: Horrorland


*Busts out the entire collection of Goosebumps books from childhood*. There was debate on whether the recent Jack Black film was all that wonderful, but we think it was (and Danny Elfman scored it, which gives it extra bonus points). Well Jack Black is back for numero dos, and we’re feelin’ good about it.


Fifty Shades Freed


You don’t need to bind us with rope to a chair to watch this film. We’ve read the books, loved the books, watched the movies, and loved the movies. So we know, oh we know, this’ll be leg-lickingly juicy.


Oceans 8


The cast lineup is damn PHENOMENAL and it’s all lead by women #whorunstheworld. Here’s the kickass eight: Rihanna, Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter, Sarah Paulson, Mindy Kaling and Awkwafina.

Johnny English 3


MR. FREAKING. BEAN. Need we say anymore? Drop the damn mic. It’s another MR. BEAN movie and that’s ‘nuff said.
