I recently took a stroll through a listing of the upcoming films for 2018 and had an absolute jump of joy as a result of what I saw. Take a look.
How the Grinch Stole Christmas– Benedict Cumberpatch
Ocean’s Eight– Rihanna, Anne Hathaway, Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett
The Incredibles 2– Samuel L. Jackson, Holly Hunter
Deadpool 2– Ryan Reynolds
Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them 2– Jude Law, Alison Sudol, Eddie Redmayne
These are just a few of the films that will be premiering in the year of 2018. It seems like 2018 is a year that will be featuring a great number of films that we have been waiting for, for a long time. I cannot even describe how long I have wanted to see what happened to baby Jack-Jack after The Incredibles and how excited I am to see How the Grinch Stole Christmas star Benedict Cumberpatch. These films also cover a wide array of film categories and genres and thus will be an amazing year!
While doing this, I was inspired to look back and see what the most popular years of film have been throughout history, and this is what I found.
#10. 1976 (Rocky & Taxi Driver)
#9. 1967 (The Graduate & In the Heat of the Night)
#8. 1985 (Out of Africa & Back to the Future)
#7. 1941 (How Green Was My Valley & The Maltese Falcon)
#6. 1962 (Lawrence of Arabia & To Kill A Mockingbird)
#5. 1982 (Ghandi & E.T. The Extra Terrestrial)
#4. 1999 (American Beauty & Fight Club)
#3. 1977 (Close Encounters of the Third Kind & Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope)
#2. 1939 (Of Mice and Men & The Wizard of Oz)
#1. 1994 (Forest Gump & Pulp Fiction)
What do you think was the greatest year in history? I am very curious to see if we will have one that will break this list in the coming years, as none of Watch Mojo’s years were after the turn of the millennium.
