Upcoming Hollywood Movies in 2019:
#1 Avengers: Endgame
India Release Date: 26 April 2019
Cast: Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Don Cheadle, Paul Rudd
Synopsis: Any better way to start the list of upcoming Hollywood movies? There are very few people who haven’t heard of the Avengers or hyped about it. And they probably live in Antarctica. After half the universe was killed in the last movie, “Avengers: Infinity War”, the Avengers now look to revert the actions of Thanos and bring back those who were lost.
#2 Pokemon Detective Pikachu
India Release Date: May 10, 2019
Cast: Ryan Reynolds, Justice Smith, Ken Watanabe, Karan Soni
Synopsis: Pokemon has been a pretty significant part of most of our childhood. And Pikachu is a character that a person of every age recognises. The famous “pika-pika” is a sound that delights many kids and brings a smile on an adult’s face. And now, Pikachu has come to the big screen with the ever-popular Ryan Reynolds giving his voice to it. This is a story of a young man who teams up with Detective Pikachu to find his long lost father.
#3 John Wick 3: Parabellum
India Release Date: May 17, 2019
Cast: Keanu Reeves, Halle Berry, Ian McShane, Ruby Rose, Common, Laurence Fishburne, Hiroyuki Sanada, Jason Mantzoukas
Synopsis: John Wick has redefined action cinema. The first movie had John Wick avenging the killing of his dog, and in a spectacular manner. The second movie proved John Wick’s hold in the action genre. The bottom line: Do not mess with John Wick. John Wick desperately wishes to retire from the business but fortunately, for us, he’s been forced back into it. With John Wick declared “excommunicado” from the Continental, the suspense for John Wick 3 has mounted and it would be a mistake to miss this one.
