2019’s Most Anticipated Films

With 2018 quickly approaching our rear-view mirror, we can start looking ahead to the year ahead. 2018 was a big year for film, with record box office draws and some of the most talked about films in years. 2019 looks to be a big one as well though, and already there are several films coming up that we can’t wait to see.

Avengers: Endgame –  Even though there is a sequel to Wonder Woman coming up, Marvel’s first female driven film Captain Marvel, and even another Spider-Man film, it’s the Avenger’s yet again that we can’t wait to see. After the events of Infinity War left us hanging we need to know how everything is going to end. Will some of our heroes remain dead (as is the rumor), or will there be a happy ending? At this point no one is talking, and no rumours have been confirmed. All we know for certain is that we have to wait until the end of April to find out.

Star Wars – We can’t even put a complete title to this one as they haven’t told us what it is other than it being the ninth of the series. We also know for certain is that this film will mark the end of the Skywalker saga that has been going on since the late 70s. JJ Abrams is back as the director as well, so you better be prepared for more nostalgia. Fans will surely complain, as they usually do, but they will also flock to the theatre and make this one of the big hits of the year.

Toy Story 4 – It’s hard to say whether Disney’s big animated hit this year will be Pixar’s Toy Story 4, or Frozen 2, but we’re choosing this one because it is sure to have a wider appeal. Toy Story started Pixar’s string of hits, and will surely continue them with this one. Woody, Buzz and all the rest are back for another adventure, which includes new characters, including a fork which is being used as a toy. 

Once Upon A Time In Hollywood – Quentin Tarantino’s ninth film is full of stars, including Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Al Pacino and Margot Robbie, and is one of the most anticipated of the upcoming year.  It follows the story of a TV actor whose career has faded, and his stunt double who are trying to make their way through 1969’s Los Angeles during the reign of terror brought on by the Manson family. 

It: Chapter Two – 2017’s It was the biggest hit horror films have had in a long time, and we always knew there would be a sequel since only half of the book was covered the first time around. Jessica Chastain, James McAvoy, and Bill Hader, join the cast as the adults the children of the first movie became. Should be the scarefest everyone wants to see.

The Lion King – It’s hard to say where Disney will draw the line when it comes to “live-action” remakes of their hits, considering this film is still animated, just in a more realistic way. It almost looks like a shot for shot remake, which really makes this not very interesting at all. But, that being said, it is The Lion King, and it should still be fun to watch. And it should should draw in the crowds.

Jason Momoa Shaves Off Beard For A Good Cause

From Game of Thrones, to Aquaman and Frontier, Jason Momoa is front and centre, along with his iconic beard. The actor posted a video on Wednesday though, stating it was time for a change, and shaved for the camera. It wasn’t without a purpose though as one might initially think. The massive actor is trying to raise awareness for aluminum recycling.

“I just want to bring awareness that plastics are killing our planet, and I think I have a solution,” Momoa said in the video as he shaved. “I don’t wanna bitch about it, but there’s only one thing that can really help our planet and save our planet, as long as we recycle, and that’s aluminum.”

Momoa goes on to say he’s specifically talking about aluminum cans making a return to replace all the plastic bottles that are used these days. He states that aluminum can continue to be recycled, and that “75 percent of aluminum that’s ever been used is still in circulation today.” He backs himself up with stats too, so it’s not just him talking for the sake of talking. He also says that it only takes 60 days for aluminum cans to go from the recycling bin, to back on the shelves with a new beverage. 

One of Momoa’s biggest pet peeves too, was not being able to find water available in aluminum cans. A new product seems to be on the way though to change that, but other than the fact that it will be coming from the Ball Corporation, not much else is known about it. 

“There’s a change coming, and it’s aluminum,” Momoa said. “You gotta get rid of your plastic water bottles. Aquaman’s trying to do the best he can for my kids, for your kids, for the world. Love you guys.”

In case you were wondering, it’s been seven years since Momoa had shaved his beard off. He also said he won’t be shaving his head though, as his wife wouldn’t like that.

Billie Eilish’s Debut Album Set To Become The Second-Biggest Album Release of 2019

If you haven’t heard of Billie Eilish before, it’s pretty much a given you will be hearing a lot of her in the future. In the first full week of release, the teenage sensation’s debut album is expected to reach between 250,000 to 275,000 equivalent album units sold, which would make it the second-biggest release of the year. 

Eilish’s “When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?”, appears to be only trailing Ariana Grande’s “Thank U, Next” for the title of the biggest 2019 album debuts to date. The album itself has benefitted from strong streaming figures, but also traditional album purchases as well. That in itself is unusual considering Eilish’s fan base has grown up mainly just streaming music, and not buying physical albums. Even more unusual is the fact that 5 of the albums 14 tracks were also released before the album, which usually cuts back on album purchases, yet in this case it doesn’t seen to have affected the sales at all.

Eilish released her debut single, “Ocean Eyes” in 2016, and it quickly went viral and became a huge success. She released an EP in 2017, which was also a huge success. It September 2017 Apple named her as its newest Up Next artist.  In her short career, Eilish already has seven gold and two platinum singles.

Apple Set To Launch Their Own TV Streaming Service
