Stephen King leads the horror movies with Pet Sematary after his successful IT in 2018. King’s movie is followed by The Curse of La Llorona and Under the Silver Lake which is set to be just as terrifying as Pet Sematary. These are just a few scary movies in 2019 with a couple more in the works. Other fresh movies to look for in 2019 include the much-publicized Captain Marvel and Shazam. Two superhero movies with contrasting themes as Captain Marvel has a darker setting as compared to a lighter and comedic superhero storyline of Shazam. Fans, of course, have been teased with one trailer of Pokemon Detective Pikachu with Pika voiced by Ryan Reynolds. This movie might be hard to match with other 3D movies in 2019 such as UglyDolls, the first live-action Pokemon movie even got the nod by Cosmopolitan’s 30 movies to watch out for in 2019.

There’s a relatively low number of romantic or drama movies by major movie producers.  Moviegoers won’t be able to see any couples cheating getting caught or star-crossed lovers on the silver screen.

Overall, moviegoers will be treated to a buffet of highly entertaining vids and even as 2018 ends, more movies might be set to be released in 2019. So, keep your bucket list open.
