The line-up for 2018 packs some serious punch, including movies that have been teased for YEARS by giants like Warner Bros. Pictures, 20th Century Fox, and Walt Disney Studios (who – if you need to jog your memory – also owns Marvel, Pixar, Lucasfilm, and most recently, 20th Century Fox!!)

It doesn’t even matter whether you’re a fan of science fiction, superhero flicks, fantasy, or just animation – it’s time to pull out your calendars and set aside some cash. After you’ve seen this list, trust me, you’re going to need it.
