2. Between rows

The appearance of Liam Neeson on the screen in recent years has become a kind of quality mark for Hollywood action films. “Passenger” is another confirmation of this. This is a strong Franco-American thriller, based on - maybe not new, but quite interesting and, most importantly, a logical story. And this time the character of Neeson is an ordinary person who has fallen into a difficult situation with no connections in the special services or superhero skills.

Another participant of the last Berlin Film Festival and a contender for the Golden Bear is the Iranian black comedy.

8. The Eternal Life of Alexander Khristoforov
The film is obligatory for viewing for anyone who is tired of pessimistic plots. The slogan says that the picture extends the summer, and this is true.

A worthy mystical drama with a rating of 18+, based on the tragedy of a single family. Unlike the usual American horror, this film is not punctuated with hackneyed tricks typical of the genre. At the same time, from the very beginning, everything is permeated with anxiety, which grows in the course of the story. The peculiar dynamics, musical accompaniment and interesting plot do their job: it turned out a high-quality and very scary movie.

A film for aesthetic pleasure and uplifting. Sweetheart, and in some places naive romantic story, flavored with local flavor (what are the views from the heights of Paris or the bright streets of Mumbai).

39. Ральф ломает интернет. Ральф 2
Первый анимационный фильм "Круши это Ральф" был снят Ричардом Муром еще в 2012 году. Этого режиссера мы помним со времен "Симпсонов" и "Футурамы". And after 6 years, the team of the creators of the first "Ralph" again teamed up to work on the sequel "Ralph breaks the Internet. Ralph 2." Voice of the big Ralph will still be John Riley. Rich Moore, who won an Oscar for the joint direction of the brilliant utopia "Zeropolis" again takes on the case. By the way, the Ralph project is Moore’s second job with Disney after Zeropolis, which collected a huge number of awards and nominations in 2016.
38. Halloween Returns Horror Movie
Another Halloween movie ?. Yes. We have already seen quite a few films of a similar subject matter that have disappointed us. However, some films from the list interest us primarily because of who plays them and who creates them.
Let's look at the prerequisites for creating the 2018 film. This is the latest version of "Halloween", which is a direct sequel to the original film, released in 1978. Jamie Lee Curtis appears again in the role of Laurie Stroud. Her character seems doomed to live in the shadow of Michael Myers, the omnipresent killer in the mask. The director of the new Halloween film was David Gordon Green, whose films "George Washington" and "All Real Girls" were marked by the enthusiasm of critics.
So we are waiting for the director to present us now. Can he breathe new life into an aging franchise?
The content cut out from the films has already become a talk of the town, so in the new sci-fi action movie from James Wan we expect a much greater presence of Jason Momoa in the role of Aquaman than in the League of Justice. The film will be interesting to fans of underwater life and fans of Atlantis. The exact opposite of what you saw in the 2017 Atlantis film. "Aquaman" is really a direct descendant of an ancient civilization, the son of Atlanna, the queen of Atlantis in exile. From an early age, Arthur Curry, aqua, has unprecedented abilities to breathe under water, to communicate with fish.
That he will manage in the future 7 seas. In addition to Momoa, Nicole Kidman, Dolph Lundgren and Amber Heard will also play in this film.
36. Time break
A science fiction film from Disney, where Jennifer Lee made the screenwriter. Do you remember her in "Cold Heart"? The premiere of the film in Russia is scheduled for March 8. So this gift will be for the audience. The director of the film on the book "The rift in time" Madeleine L'Engle became Ava Duverny. The plot of the picture promises to be extremely twisted, where the main character is not only to find her father, lost in time and worlds, but also to save this world from destruction. It is known that the creation of the film "Disney" has invested a 9-digit figure. And what a selection of actors we have: Oprah Winfrey, Rhys Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling, Chris Pine, Gugu Mbata-Row.
Everyone's favorite book "The crack in time" seems to turn into an unforgettable film version. We look forward to the release of the film.
35. Judgment Night 4
"Judgment Night 2" still remains the top of a series of dystopian thrillers. However, this year’s prequel “Doomsday Nights”, which was written by James DeMonaco and directed by Gerard McMurray, may disrupt this state of affairs. From the new film "Judgment Night 4" we learn the history of the cultural event, which became known as Judgment Night. So popular, like Black Friday, but much more bloodthirsty, because for as long as 12 hours, once a year, all laws in the country are repealed and you can commit crimes with complete impunity.
Welcome to the massacres, a movement that began as a simple experiment on the First Judgment Day, but turned into something much bigger and more terrible.
34. Fighting my family
Stephen Merchant spent most of this year on his first film, in which he acts as an independent director. He also wrote the screenplay for the film and played the role of Hugh. The film is interesting mix of British actors - Merchant, Nick Frost, with American - Duane Johnson, Lina Headey, Vince Vaughn. This comedy-drama or dramedi narrates the life of a former professional wrestler who travels around the country, taking part in small tournaments. At this time, his children dream of joining WWE - the International Organization of Wrestlers. The film is based on the real story of the Bevis family, where all family members are professional wrestlers.
Once Saraya or as she is called "Page" (Florence Pugh) gets a contract for work from WWE, her dream has come true, but the main events are still ahead. Fans of Dwayne Johnson, this is the first of three films with the participation of the actor, which we describe in this review.
33. Tomb Raider: Lara Croft
The last 2 films of "Tomb Raider" were not memorable. This probably affects the curse adaptations of video games in movies. But the Norwegian director Roar Uthaug, who had already shocked the public with the disaster film “Wave” in 2015, and Alicia Vikander, who will play Lara Croft, are able to turn this unfortunate trend in the other direction, proving to the whole world that you can make such a film that will shut up and the video game itself.
Lara will go on an adventure to the island to find her father there and reveal the secrets of that area. She has a lot to experience and survive, so that the struggle for survival will not be for life, but for death.
It has been more than 10 years since the release of the movie “Transformers,” which was filmed by Michael Bay. This time Travis Knight, formerly known for his work in animated films, including the 2016 hit like Kubo. The Legend of Samurai, will be the director of Bumblebee. The new film "Bumblebee" is a story about a teenage girl (Hayley Steinfeld) and her best friend a giant alien robot, an autobot that can turn into a VW beetle.
Actions take place all in the same 80s of the last century. What will show us the new director in collaboration with Michael Bay, this time as a producer, we will see in December 2018. Travis, do not let us down!
31. Bohemian Rhapsody
Biographical film about the legend from the world of music, Freddie Mercury. In the film, he will play Rami Malek, most remembered by the audience on the series "Mr. Robot". For this role, Malek received an Emmy Award. It’s hard to talk about this promising project, because at the moment Brian Singer, the director of the film, is fired. What else can be added to this? It seems that there is a struggle of interests.
While the release of the film is still scheduled for the end of December 2018. Perhaps it will be a gift for the New Year for Freddie Mercury fans.
Among those films for which we review films based on games in the minority. If “Tom Raider Lara Croft”, “Ralph vs. the Internet” and “Ready Player One” are not enough for you, then you can turn to adapting the video game for the 80s slot machines from Midway.
The film was directed by Brad Peyton, remembered by the catastrophe film “San Andreas Rift”. The plot begins with the fact that in the laboratory experiments were conducted on a monkey. But in the process of its holding something went wrong, and the monkey grew to gigantic proportions, turned into a sort of King Kong. It turned out that the same thing happened with the wolf and the crocodile. Now these three destroy skyscrapers on their way, trying to establish dominance in the territory of America. Duane Johnson, not only an actor, but also a wrestler, will play the role of a primatologist in the film. Together with their friend genetic engineer, they will try to stop the collapse and catastrophe in the world.
Duane Johnson is gaining momentum. We did not have time to present it in the previous review, as it was time to announce it again. The "skyscraper" sends us back to the 80s, and this time Johnson will play a former FBI agent, a war veteran, who is now monitoring the skyscraper security system. And having arrived in China, a skyscraper rated by him as the safest on the planet is being destroyed. In all blame Ford, Johnson's hero. This is where the events begin to unfold, because he needs to find the real culprits of what happened, which set him up. But do not think that everything is so serious. The film was created with the collaboration of Rawson Marshall Turber, who delighted us with the comedy "Dodgeball" and "We are the Millers.
So “Skyscraper” may not be the most sophisticated film of 2018, but definitely promising.
The new horror film from Sylvain White, the creator of the action movie "Losers".
The horrors of the past were created on the basis of urban myths and legends. But where are these legends now? As where, of course, on the Internet. The creepy stories that have been circulating around the web for many years now can horrify readers. One of them is the story of Slenderman, thin, tall, with a disproportionately long arm of a man, dressed in a funeral outfit, without any distinctive features on his face. Where he appeared, just expect that children will disappear somewhere without a trace. The reasons for Slenderman's actions are unknown to anyone; this is a mystery.
The origin of the myth on the Internet in 2009 is attributed to Eric Knudsen. Thank you, Eric! It seems that the cold of horror will penetrate to the bones of anyone who watched this movie. The premiere is scheduled for May 2018.
27. Red Sparrow
"Red Sparrow" is the name of the spy thriller, in which we again see the duet of Jennifer Lawrence and Francis Lawrence, familiar to us from the films "The Hunger Games."
This is a thriller that beats the theme of Russian-American relations based on the book by Jason Matthews. The main character of the Russian spy, former ballerina Dominic Egorova (Jennifer Lawrence), was assigned to uncover the American "mole" of Nathaniel Nash (Joel Edgerton). But is not everything so simple, and perhaps Dominica herself will become a double agent?
Brilliant cast members: Jeremy Irons, Charlotte Rampling, Matthias Schonarts, Kiaran Hinds, Mary-Louise Parker seem to guarantee the success of the film coming out in March.
26. Creed: The Legacy of Rocky 2
"Creed 2" will make an excellent company for the film "Rocky 4", because this is the sequel to the film "Creed", which received an Oscar nomination. Michael B. Jordan will again appear in the role of Adonis Creed, and Sylvester Stallone will play Rocky Balboa for the eighth time during his acting career. Dolph Lundgren also returned in the role of Ivan Drago.
There are rumors that Rocky and Drago will also appear in the film. Stallone will also perform not only as an actor, but also as a sequel director.
25. Particle of God
In April of this year we will see a fantastic horror film from Julius She. This is the sequel to "Cloverfield, 10". Producer JJ Abrams is still focused on a group of astronauts who are in orbit, while the Earth has disappeared, humanity no longer exists. The incredible discoveries made by the heroes of the film lead to fantastic consequences.
So far this is only a sequel, but in the future regular annual production of films on Cloverfield is already planned. The cast includes David Oyelovo, Daniel Bruel, Gugu Mbata-Rowe and Elizabeth Debika.
24. Dog Island
“Dog Island” is another animated film from Wes Anderson after “Fantastic Mr. Fox” in 2009. The theme, by the way, is very similar, again bestial. The director of the film was remembered to us after the scandalous “Kingdom of the full moon” and the Oscar-nominated film “Hotel Grand Budapest”.
This time the action takes place in the future of Japan, on the "dog island" where the dogs are sent to quarantine. In fact, in Japan there is an island of cats, but there is no quarantine there. Among the characters of the animated film are 5 dogs and a boy named Atari, who went to the island in search of his lost pet.
Voicing dogs will be a star Hollywood line-up: Scarlett Johanson, Brian Cranston, Jeff Goldblum, Edward Norton, Bill Murray, Leo Schreiber and others.
23. Mary Poppins returns
"Mary Poppins Returns" in December 2018. The sequel to the first Mary Poppins of 1964, where the book of Pamela Travers is taken as a basis. Emily Blunt will play the role of the magic nanny instead of Julie Andrew, and the film director was none other than Rob Marshall, the creator of the films Chicago, Memoirs of a Geisha, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Shores. The film also features Dick Van Dyke, Colin Firth, Meryl Streep and Julie Walters. I must say, not at all a weak cast!
22. Mission: Impossible 6
"Mission Impossible 6" or "Mission Impossible: Consequences."
Despite the fact that as many as 5 parts of the “Mission” have already been filmed, the creators of the vintage film series always find new high-tech tricks, and Tom Cruise is still inimitable in performing his stunts. Christopher Macquarie, the Oscar-winning screenwriter (“Operation Valkyrie”) this time will speak not only as a writer, but also as a film director. The only criticism on our part is that the villains from the previous parts of Mission Impossible always "drowned out" by the spectacularity and speed of the events in the film. If in this version Tom Cruise's hero, Ethan Hunt, got a decent antagonist, then the new sequel would be the best among previous versions.
The premiere is scheduled for July 2018.
21. Pacific frontier 2
Guillermo del Toro appeared in this film as a producer, leaving the role of director for Stephen Denaytom. In the second part of the “Pacific Rim,” kaizu monsters invade Earth, where they will be confronted by technically improved mega-huntsman robots. In the lead role of Jake Pentecost, the son of Stacker Pentecost, we will see John Boyegh, who is remembered to us by Star Wars. The first film "The Pacific Frontier" met our expectations, it was very colorful and bright. In spirit it could be characterized by the words "more than life itself." The same mood can be expected in March from the Pacific Line 2 as well.
