Movies have tried to present war in one form or the other right since the beginning. World War I, World War II, Vietnam War, Holocaust, Afghanistan.. you name it Hollywood has covered it. Films like ‘Schindler’s List’, ‘The Pianist’, and ‘Hacksaw Ridge’ (to name a few) tell us the heroic tales that we wouldn’t have known otherwise. Every year, we get to see plethora of war films covering different subject. The next two years are no different.
At this point, the question that might be circling your mind is what is the next war movie? Well, the good news is that we have a clear answer to that question. Here’s the list of upcoming war films scheduled to release in 2019 and 2020. We can only hope that the latest new war movie would be as good as some of the recent ones.
10. Avengers: Endgame (April 26, 2019)
Tony Stark, adrift in space with no food or water. Cap, Thor, Black Widow and Dr. Banner back on Earth, defeated, desolate, and without hope. Spiderman, Dr. Strange, Winter Soldier, Black Panther, Groot, Star Lord, Mantis, Drax, Nick Fury, Wanda and Falcon, gone with the wind. This is what the snap did to our favourite heroes, while Loki, Gamora, Heimdall and Vision seem to be lost forever. The teaser trailer showed all this and more, and while for others, it may have been missing any action sequences to boast of, and no impressive set pieces either, for me, it perfectly sets the tone for the delirious aftermath of the one successful cinematic attempt at an apocalypse, even if partial, in the history of the world. The frenzy for the film has lobbied fans to write petitions to NASA for bringing Tony Stark back home, and while all of this is in good fun (hopefully), if that doesn’t define a fandom, I don’t know what else does. A sure shot blockbuster record breaker in the making.
