    @TiredOfSeth Prestigious

    First draft of the list for me is stuff that I already know is coming out, so mostly a lot of wide releases. I didn't know if/when some of my favorites of 2018 (Roma, Beale Street, etc.) were coming out at the start of last year, for what it's worth, so I'll certainly be adding to this as time goes on. For now:

    Knives Out (Rian Johnson)
    Us (Jordan Peele)
    Dune (Denis Villeneuve)
    The Irishman (Martin Scorsese)
    The Beach Bum (Harmony Korine)
    Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (Quentin Tarantino)
    How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World (Dean DeBlois)
    Missing Link (Chris Butler)
    Captain Marvel (Anna Boden & Ryan Fleck)
    The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part (Mike Mitchell)
    Ford v. Ferrari (James Mangold)
    Detective Pikachu (Rob Letterman)
    John Wick 3: Parabellum (Chad Stahelski)
    Star Wars: Episode IX (J.J. Abrams)
    Little Women (Greta Gerwig)
    Ad Astra (James Gray)
    Last Christmas (Paul Feig)



    Cautiously Optimistic:

    Avengers: Endgame (Joe & Anthony Russo)
    Toy Story 4 (Josh Cooley)
    Spider-Man: Far From Home (Jon Watts)
    Flarsky, or whatever it's called (Jonathan Levine)
    Men In Black: International (F. Gary Gray)
    Shazam (David F. Sandberg)
    Kingsman: The Great Game (Matthew Vaughn)
    Zombieland 2 (Ruben Fleischer)
    Where'd You Go, Bernadette (Richard Linklater)
    All three live action Disney remakes (maybe not so much Aladdin, I don't trust Guy Ritchie as much as Burton or Favreau)

    Feel free to add to the pile. I'm positive I missed plenty of stuff

    I wanted to add Her Smell but I didn't know for sure if it came out this year or last! Still haven't seen it, that's for sure

    i'm too sensitive for this shit Prestigious

    When looking ahead, I always think of superhero films first, just 'cause. To that end, Avengers: Endgame is something I'm very interested in. My opinion of Infinity War is... complicated. However, I'm a sucker for finales, and I could totally see Endgame hitting some of those easy finale beats (especially if Tony and/or whoever else dies). Hoping for the Marvel equivalent of Return of the King.

    A lot of this year's comic book movies have both high ceilings and low floors to me, but the other one I'm weirdly most obsessed with right now is Dark Phoenix. I don't like Apocalypse or (minority opinion) First Class. I could see this one, by a first time director, after being delayed twice, being Fant4stic bad. And yet... I could also see it being as good as X2. Plus, this is probably the end of an era, so I can't help being sentimental, in spite of Fox's rough track record.

    As for other stuff... Um... Knives Out sounds cool. Godzilla: King of Monsters could be really cool. I don't think I'd like Spring Breakers if it came out today, but I liked it then, so I'll probably see The Beach Bum. Detective Pikachu is just weird enough to interest me. And, I'm not sure how optimistic to be about Star Wars Episode IX, but after loving The Last Jedi, I'm certainly at least curious what the heck it ends up being.

    Captain Marvel (Anna Boden & Ryan Fleck)

    I don’t know if the PTA movie will be out in 2020 sadly

    Never got around to Godzilla or Beach Bum. Was right to doubt Star Wars, which sucked. Dark Phoenix wasn't, but I did end up liking it for what it was. Endgame did deliver what I wanted, which was cool.

    Anyways, I guess I could come up w/ my 2020 list.

    Though, not sure personally how much sense it makes to keep using the same thread instead of a new one each year? I dunno. *shrug*

    I thought the same thing about Phantom Thread being out by '17 but he really got the trains running on time with that one

    Ok, what I can think of:

    Birds of Prey (Cathy Yan)
    Dune (Denis Villeneuve)
    The Eternals (Chloé Zhao)
    Soul (Pete Docter)
    Tenet (Christopher Nolan)
    Venom 2 (Andy Serkis)

    Also someone interested in Morbius (*starring alleged creep Jared Leto), Mulan, Bloodshot, & Snake Eyes, which could all be pretty bad but all seem like they could be decently fun for what they are, lol.

    The Gentlemen (Guy Ritchie)
    Emma (Autumn De Wilde)

    Mulan (Nikki Caro)
    The Woman In The Window (Joe Wright)
    Ghostbusters (Ivan Reitman)
    Barb and Star Go To Vista Del Mar (Josh Greenbaum)

    I guess I'm counting Portrait Of A Lady On Fire as 2020 because that's when Neon is releasing it
