Movie Overload: Release Dates Galore

Good Day to all The Geek Enthusiasts and Nerd Aficionados!

There has been an overload of movie news in the last few days, in particular announcements for movie releases. You know, the dates and years that films will be gracing our eye holes in the movie theaters? Some of these are greatly anticipated. For others, to put it nicely, there is hopeful optimism.

Movie Releases

Let’s talk about the big ones first:

  • Star Wars: Episode IX

    • The currently untitled film was just announced to release on May 24, 2019. Meaning we don’t have to wait until December of 2019  for the Skywalker Saga to perhaps come to an end. This also puts Disney in the driving seat to control the early Summer of 2019 with Avengers 4 releasing within 3 weeks of May 24th.
  • Indiana Jones 5Movie_ Releases_Indy_5

    • The other Lucasfilm property is getting a release date of July 10, 2020. Hopefully this one will washout the taste of Indy 4. I’m also hoping there is a jab at Harrison and Indy lands a plane somewhere that he’s not supposed to.
  • Deadpool 2Movie_Releases_Deadpool_2

    • The Deadpool news keeps rolling, after getting the announcement of Cable casting. We now get the release date of June 1, 2018. Get your chimichangas ready!!!
  • Frozen 2Frozen_Poster

    • “Let it Go?” Disney says hell no. After the massive success of the first one there was going to definitely be a sequel. It will be in theaters on November 27, 2019. Making 2019 more and more the year of Disney.

Hopeful Optimism

  • Avatar(s) 2 through 5Avatar

    • Being that release dates were spoken about before, I consider this tentative at best. Interest in Avatar has pretty much already subsided, James Cameron is the only thing keeping people excited – or trying to at least.
      • Avatar 2 – December 18, 2020
      • More Giant Blue Cat People 3 – December 17, 2021
      • Blue People Civil War 4? – December 20, 2024 No idea why there is a 3 year gap.
      • Will anyone care anymore 5? – December 19, 2025
  • New Mutants

    • Judging by the success Fox has had with “Deadpool” and “Logan,” maybe they have finally figured out how to make good comic movies. This will be the first chance to see if they’ve learned from those properties on April 13, 2018.
  • X-men: Dark PhoenixDark_Phoenix

    • Apocalypse definitely had it’s drawbacks, however I did like the new younger talent that was casted. I hope just like I stated with New Mutants, that Fox has learned from their mistakes and gives us a proper Dark Phoenix film. No release date yet, just wanted to throw that in there.

        I’ve heard a little from Pixar’s people about Frozen 2, and am curious, admittedly. The rest I will leave up to your imagination. Blue, da boo de da boo da….
