If you are here, I’m going to assume that movie already plays a part in your life. Why? Because it plays in mine too.

More and more movies are being made from year to year, counting from animation, comedy, romance to action. 2018 is not going to be quiet. Many blockbuster movies are going to be out and blow your hair up. For now, I would like to walk you through 10 upcoming action movies of 2018.
10. Black Panther
Showing the first appearance in movie, Captain America: Civil War, Black Panther is voted by most Marvel fans that the guy really deserves his own movie. Pretty chic, right? Dressing in black and figuring one of the most powerful animals in the jungle, the panther. Telling by his costume, we can start imagining him fighting as his own hero and save the world. Marvel does sense the powerful wave, and that’s why they are raising him up by building his own movie.
Actually, the movie is supposed to be made way earlier than that in 1992 as mentioned by Wesley Snipes; however, things happen on the way and the production was going through multiple iterations and never coming to fruition. The main character, Black Panther or King T’Challa, starring by Chadwick Boseman, returns to his Kingdom, Wakanda, after what happened in Captain America: Civil War. Nevertheless, his kingdom is the target of the two enemies who want to bring it down. Hence, T’Challa must group up with CIA agent Everett K. Ross and members of the Dora Milaje, Wakanda special forces, to help stopping World War III.
The film is scheduled to be initially released on February 9, 2018 in the United Kingdom and February 16, 2018 in the United States in IMAX and 3D. Mark your calendar now and reserve the date to enjoy this awesome movie.

9. Death Wish
Most of the great films are the adaptation from the novel, and Death Wish is not the exception. Based on the 1972 novel written by Brian Garfield, this 2018 film is actually the remake of the 1974 film with the same name which was starring Charles Bronson. Bruce Willis plays the lead character in this film as Dr. Paul Kersey, a Chicago-based doctor. In 2006, Sylvester Stallone claimed he would be directing this remake film, but instead of having Charles Bronson character as the architect, his character would be a nice, successful cop who never uses his gun. The cop turns as his family is murdered. However, in the late 2006, Stallone officially announced he would not be directing the film.
This 2018 remake film is about a doctor in Chicago who later becomes a vigilante when his family is murdered and brutally attacked. Alongside with Bruce Willis, Vincent D’Onofrio plays Paul Kersey’s younger brother, Dean Norris as Detective Rains, Kimberly Elise as Detective Jackson and other great actors and actresses.
