15 Upcoming Action Movies We Are Excited About

Action movies are usually tried and tested formulas of success. Even if the stories are not that good, the camera work is not completely on point, these films still earn the big bucks. They are absolute crowd pullers because people love watching over the top good old fashioned good guy versus bad guy action movies. Hollywood never disappoints when it comes to this genre. Here’s the list of 15 upcoming action movies we are excited about:

 

1. Avengers: Infinity War (2018)

This is what Marvel has been building up to all this while. Thanos was teased in many films but the big bad villain of the MCU will appear on our big screens in 2018. And a big baddie means a big team of good guys are needed to stop him. So, we will see the Avengers, Earth’s mightiest heroes team up with the Guardians of the Galaxy. If a team that has Thor, Hulk, Drax and Rocket does not guarantee action then nothing will. The movie is sure to have its share of over the top mind-blowing action. Exactly what is needed to make this movie a thumping success! We cannot wait for 2018 to see probably the most anticipated action movie and most anticipated superhero film come to the theatres.

 

2. Jumanji : Welcome to the Jungle (2017)

Scheduled to release on 20th December, 2017, this film is a sequel to the 1995 Jumanji which starred Robin Williams. The film follows four teenagers who get sucked into the game except it is not a board game this time, it is a video game and they enter the jungle as their avatars. They have to finish the game to escape. Starring Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart and Jack Black, this film promises to deliver in action and its comic moments. We hope the sequel, which is also intended as a tribute to the late Robin Williams, is just as enjoyable as the original and if it is then we are indeed in for a wild treat.

 

3. Flashpoint (2020)

Although this movie is in the pipelines and has been conditioned to be released based on the commercial success of the Justice League movie we can’t help but be excited about it. A Flash standalone movie it is based on the Flashpoint paradox which in itself is a highly interesting comic arc. If reading is not your thing, Flashpoint as an animated film exists as well. However, we can’t wait for this movie to materialize, simply because we are really excited to see Thomas Wayne as an older more ruthless Batman and the plot itself has plenty of action so any honest adaptation of the arc will materialize into a thoroughly enjoyable film. And since Flash is already being introduced in the upcoming Justice League movie, it’s only fair he gets his own film, and Flashpoint seems like an excellent place to start.

 

4. World War Z 2 (2019)

The film is scheduled to release in 2019 but it is not sure as of yet since a script does not appear to be ready. However, it seems as if David Fincher is on board and any Fincher film should automatically merit a watch. Starring Brad Pitt, this film will be a sequel to the World War Z. If the zombie apocalypse in the first film was anything to go by the second one promises to deliver on ample action and zombie films mean death and gore and plenty of bullets. We can’t wait to see what Fincher does with the film but it is sure to be an exciting watch.

 

5. Pacific Rim Uprising (2018)

This film slated to be released in 2018 is set ten years after the first Pacific Rim movie. The initial clash between the monsters and robots have left the oceans calm. The robot program or the Jaeger program will be shown in an advanced stage and we hope to see some more monster versus robots in this film. It’s like the first film says – we love a mega brawl and this film promises the biggest, meanest fighters we could hope to see.
