11 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. Every year several new action movies are being released. Some are good; some are not. Here is the list of upcoming action movies (new releases) that one should keep an eye on. We hope these latest action movies are as good as some of the recent ones.

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. 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.

3. 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.

4. 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.

5. Mission Impossible 6 (2018)

Yes, you read that right. A sixth part to the franchise is slated to be released in July 2018. Tom Cruise will be returning as the ever charming and ever deadly spy Ethan Hunt. Joining the franchise will be notably Henry Cavill as well. This is supposed to be the first Mission Impossible movie to be released in 3D. We are highly excited by this because the action will be just that much more real, and this franchise or Tom Cruise have never disappointed and we have no reason to believe that this film will not have electrifying action that’ll have us gripping the edges of our seats open mouthed.

6. Expendables 4 (2018)

Scheduled to be released in 2018, this will probably see Sylvester Stallone as Barney Ross in his last appearance for the franchise. Both he and Arnold Schwarzenegger have had disagreements with the franchise and are calling it quits. While we don’t know yet what it means for this action amalgamated franchise we know that Stallone will exit with a bang. So we can expect the Expendables to team up guns blazing in a ride to Barney Ross’ final glory in 2018.

7. Solo : A Star Wars Story (2018)

Scheduled to be released in May 2018, the film will be a standalone in the Star Wars anthology. It’ll follow the story of Han Solo, the roguish smuggler who later teamed up with Obi Wan and Luke. The adventure which is being described as a space western will follow both Han Solo and his partner Chewbacca’s exploits. Directed by Ron Howard, this film already is giving us Peter Quill (Starlord, from Guardians of the Galaxy) vibes and we hope to see some exciting action in a galaxy far far away.

8. Ocean’s 8 (2018)

This Gary Ross directed film is scheduled to release in 2018. The story which is a heist comedy will follow Danny Ocean’s estranged sister – Debbie Ocean. She will attempt to pull off a huge heist at the MET gala, and her crew will be an all woman crew. A female counterpart of the Ocean’s 11 crew, this film should be full of action and tense cat and mouse chase moments that characterize notable scenes of the Ocean’s trilogy.

9. New Mutants (2018)

Scheduled to release in 2018, this film is in the superhero genre and promises to be an action film but from what we can understand of the trailer it will have firm roots in the horror genre as well. The first official trailer for the film has a very creepy version of Pink Floyd’s Brick in the Wall Part 2 playing in the background as it shows the place where the young mutants are institutionalized. A part of the X Men franchise, this film will follow the young group of mutants as they try to survive this institution that appears to be more and more like a haunted house.

10. Deadpool 2 (2018)

Scheduled to be released in June 2018, this will be the sequel to the Ryan Reynolds film Deadpool which was a huge success mainly because of the excellent portrayal of the merc with a mouth. The sequel is bound to have even more awesome action sequences, even more sassy dialogues and with Cable appearing in the film, we hope to see some great stunt work in this movie.

11. The Division (Undecided)

Based on Tom Clancy’s game of the same name, this film is scheduled to be released as one of the Ubisoft motion picture productions. It is supposed to star Jessica Chastain and Jake Gyllenhaal. The story, if it remains true to the game, will follow the narrative of a virus outbreak in Manhattan and a team that tries to bring the situation under control. Tom Clancy’s storylines are nerve-wracking with generous dollops of action and we have no reason to believe that the film will be any different.
