Upcoming SF Movies in 2019 by Jacey Bedford

My friend, H, and I go to the movies most weeks because have the Meerkat Movies two-for-one offer. It means we ‘risk’ far more movies that we would otherwise see at full price. We try to see most SF or fantasy movies that come out (though I confess, we usually avoid horror). I’m always interested to see what’s coming up. I’ve included some animation, kids’ movies or not, as long as they have a fantasy element. If you are a fan of super hero movies and/or comic adaptations this is going to be a good year for you. Please note, the release dates have been gleaned from various internet sources, and may not be completely accurate, especially if UK and USA release dates are different. If there are any upcoming movies I’ve missed please let me know in the comments.

Happy New Year to one and all.

Still in the cinemas as the year turns from 2018 to 2019 are: Aquaman, Mortal Engines, Mary Poppins Returns, Wreck-it Ralph: Ralph Breaks the Internet, Smallfoot, Spider Man: Into the Spiderverse, Bumblebee, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindlewald, and The Grinch.
