Movie Junkies, These Are The Films To Look Forward To In 2019

#4: Ad Astra

Release date: May 24
Cast: Brad Pitt, Tommy Lee Jones, Ruth Negga, Donald Sutherland
Directed by: James Gray

If you’re into sci-fi, you’ll want to look out for the highly anticipated Ad Astra. Set in the future (duh), it follows Roy McBride, an Army Corps engineer (played by Brad Pitt), who sets off to scour the solar system in the hopes of finding his father, who left 20 years prior to Neptune in order to find signs of alien life.

#5: Once Upon A Time In Hollywood

Release date: July 26
Cast: Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie, Al Pacino
Directed by: Quentin Tarantino

Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie, Al Pacino — the fact that these four names starring in the same movie together ought to make Once Upon A Time In Hollywood a must-watch. A mystery crime flick helmed by Tarantino, it focuses on the story of the Manson Family murders — including the real-life high-profile murder of ’60s actress Sharon Tate — once considered to one of the most promising up-and-comers in Hollywood.

#6: Midsommar

Release date: TBA
Cast: Jack Reynor, Florence Pugh, Will Poulter, Vilhem Blomgren, William Jackson Harper, Ellora Torchia, Archie Madekwe
Directed by: Ari Aster

Many critics placed Ari Aster’s Hereditary (illustrated above) as the scariest flick of 2018 — with audiences reportedly fainting or walking out of screenings. While there aren’t much details yet, Midsommar follows a couple who travel to Sweden to visit their friend’s countryside village for its mid-summer festival. As you might imagine, what was supposed to be a heavenly holiday quickly dissolves into violence through pagan cult rituals.

#7: Little Women

Release date: December 25
Cast: Meryl Streep, Saoirse Ronan, Timothee Chalamet, Florence Pugh
Directed by: Greta Gerwig

Boasting the dreamy pairing of Saoirse Ronan and Timothee Chalamet again, Greta Gerwig returns from Lady Bird to direct yet another take on Louisa May Alcott’s classic American novel Little Women which follows the lives of four sisters from childhood to womanhood.
