MPNAIJA GIST:The Movies You Should Watch Out For In The First Quarter Of 2018



While everyone continues to fixate on the awards that will be given to movies released in 2017, we are already slowly turning our attention to the movies of 2018. Lots of movies are scheduled to be released this year and as always, they will range from heroic superheroes to horror and lovely dramas.

Despite the fact that comic-book extravaganzas seems to have taken over the movie scene, a lot of exciting new works from wonderful talents like Steven Spielberg and Martin Scorsese before the end of 2018, should make it an unforgettable movie year.

 Mandy




Mandy premiered at sun dance and the Panos Cosmatos’ film will definitely live up to its billing. The directors 2011, Beyond the Black Rainbow is one of the truly great movies of the decade as it took sci-fi movies to another level.

For mandy, he took things to another level as he teamed up with Nicolas Cage for this story that is centered on man in the year 1983, who embarks on a mission of revenge against the religious cult that murdered his wife.

 Black Panther (FEB. 16)



Before Marvel drops it’s all-star Avengers blow-out, they will first be releasing the first all black super-hero movie – Black Panther stand-alone adventure. The movie is directed by Creed’s Ryan Coogler and stars Chadwick Boseman, Lupita Nyong’o, Michael B. Jordan, Danai Gurira, and Angela Bassett, among many others.

 If the trailer is anything to go by, it will be one of the most daring movie efforts to come out from Marvel studio yet.

Annihilation (FEB. 23)



This movie was written and directed by Alex Garland and is a sci-fi-horror film about a biologist who ventures into an environmental disaster area to search for her missing husband.

There has been a number of early positive reviews about this ambitious project and the fact that it includes a stellar cast of Natalie Portman, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Tessa Thompson, Gina Rodriguez, and Oscar Isaac, should make the hype worth it.

 A Wrinkle In Time (MARCH 9)



Director of Selma, Ava DuVernay takes the reigns of this big-budget Disney fantasy film which is an adaptation of Madeleine L’Engle’s book. The story is about a young girl, her brother, and her friend’s odyssey into space to find her father courtesy of three mystical figures.

 The movie has Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling, Chris Pine, Michael Pena, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, and Zach Galifianakis on his cast and this should surely put it in prime position for top spots at the box office.

 Isle Of Dogs (MARCH 30)



Wes Anderson returns to stop-motion animation with this movie that is based on a boy searching for his missing dog on a quarantined island populated by canines. As always, the director offers an all-star cast and if the early trailers are anything to go by, it could be one of the year’s most charming offerings yet.

 Ready Player One(MARCH 30)



With the source material for this movie appearing to be below par, but the magical director, Steven Spielberg handling things, we hope it will make for good viewing.

 He was tasked with adapting Earnest Cline’s pop culture-obsessed book, which concerns a young kid (Tye Sheridan) going on a virtual reality treasure hunt—and which will no doubt be overflowing with shout-outs to your favorite fictional properties and characters.

You Were Never Really Here (APRIL 6)


Writer/ director, Lynne Ramsay who was the winner of the Best Screenplay and Best Actor awards at 2017’s Cannes Film Festival is in charge of this revenge thriller. The movie stars Joaquin Phoenix as a hired killer who unearths dark secrets while trying to save a girl from a life of prostitution. All the elements are in place for a top-rate genre effort.
