The book we all fell in love with in elementary school is making its way to theaters this year. The story follows children as they travel through galaxies in search of their missing scientist father. Featuring a cast full of favorites like Oprah Winfrey, Chris Pine and Mindy Kaling along with its impressive visuals, this film is expected to bring our childhood imagination to life on screen. 

4. Love, Simon (March 16)

If you’re a sucker for a young adult rom-com, this film is the 2018 version of that. Simon, a high school boy struggling with coming out, finds himself with the help of his friends. In case that doesn’t interest you, the soundtrack alone is bound to impress you.

Based on a near dystopian future, this book adaption centers on the idea of a society that spends its time immersed in a virtual reality called OASIS. From a popular book to a film directed by Steven Spielberg, Ready Player One is a fantasy must see.

6. Ocean’s 8 (June 8)

With the most impressive cast yet, this woman empowering film features everyone from Anne Hathaway, Sandra Bullock and Rihanna, to Sarah Paulson and many more as they plan a grand heist at the Met Gala. Whether you’re interested in crazy action or beautiful gowns, this movie has a little something for everyone.

7. The Purge: Island (July 4)

A big movie trend in 2018 is prequels and this film is no different. The Purge has become quite the phenomena over the last few years and now we finally have the change to learn what inspired the 12-hour crime-free period that’s haunted us.

8. Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again (July 20)

This movie is playing the role of both prequel and sequel to the first Mama Mia we all know and love. The story follows Sophie as she learns more about her mother’s pregnancy with her. This feel-good movie is the perfect summer movie to inspire endless adventures and wanderlust.

9. Incredibles 2 (July 13)

Does this one even need an explanation? This long-awaited sequel has taken 14 years and I have no doubt it will be worth the wait.
