Right from the most awaited 2.0, to the long-delayed Dhruva Natchathiram, here is a hand-picked list of 15 upcoming new and latest Tamil movie releases that we cannot wait to watch in 2018.


1. 2.0

Undoubtedly, the most awaited Indian film of next year. The iconic combination of Rajinikanth-Shankar, mega-successful prequel, Akshay Kumar and some never-before-seen graphics, have all been successfully influential in creating a humongous hype around the movie. 2.0 is the second movie in the Robo series. One of the costliest films ever made in Indian Cinema, 2.0 is the first-of-its-kind movie to be entirely shot using a 3D camera, and motion capture techniques. Director Shankar always famous for the usage of extravagant graphics in his movies, has gone the extra mile to make the movie. Starring Superstar Rajnikanth as the iconic ‘Chitti-The Robot’, and Bollywood’s Khiladi Kumar as the antagonist, 2.0 is expected to become one of the highest grossers of Indian Cinema.
