In 2018, to which we’ve just said goodbye, we’ve seen blockbusters such as Black Panther, Crazy Rich Asians and A Star Is Born. And there are more exciting movies in the works for 2019. Below TEENS has picked three for you. Let’s take a look.
Spider-Man: Far From Home, July 5, US
Tom Holland, the lead actor of 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming, returns to play Peter Parker, a high school student who gains superpowers after being bitten by a spider.
When we see him again in theaters, Spider-Man will have a new red-and-black suit. The movie will take the famous wall-crawler on a global adventure outside of the US. According to Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, Spider-Man will try a return to his “normal” self; he will try to find his old powers on his new journey.
Hobbs and Shaw, July 26, US
To most people the Fast and Furious series is all about crazy drivers racing in sports cars. But in its spin-off, called Hobbs and Shaw, humor is added to the action-packed thrills.
The new film will hit US theaters on July 26. Famous robust English actor Jason Statham will star alongside Dwayne Johnson, “The Rock”, as Deckard Shaw and Luke Hobbs respectively, as in their previous appearances in Fast and Furious films.
When the pair fought face to face in Fast and Furious 8 (2017), a confrontation was dubbed the “battle model for warriors”. The action and chemistry really stimulated their audience.
But the new action scenes between an MI6 agent Hobbs and the killer Shaw will have to be good to beat their stand-off in the 2017 movie.
The Lion King, July 19, US
This is a brand-new version of the classic children’s film. The story of wide-eyed young lion Simba still remains in hearts of world audiences even after 25 years. In this re-telling, Simba again begins the difficult journey to become the King of the Pride Lands, a vast African prairie.
The favorite part of the story for many has always been the friendship between Simba, the meerkat called Timon and the warthog Pumbaa. The last two sacrifice all they have to help Simba to his throne. How will the new movie re-imagine their famous relationship?
