2019 will be full of sequels


From Star Wars: Episode IX to It: Chapter Two, 2019 will be full of sequels, reboots, prequels and spinoffs. For many of these upcoming films, their predecessors have already proven they can perform at the box office. Take Avengers: Infinity War which will be followed up by Avengers: Endgame in April  for example. The superhero flick smashed a number of records in its debut weekend alone, earning both the biggest domestic and biggest worldwide opening of all time. However, that’s not to say the year’s slate is lacking in original movies, either. Jordan Peele’s Us, his first film since Get Out, hits theaters in March; Quentin Tarantino’s star-studded Charles Manson movie Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is set for a July release; and Tom Hanks is Mister Rogers in October’s You Are My Friend, to name a few.
