It promises to be another big 12 months for blockbuster movies, so we've rounded up all the best trailers for the movies that we're most excited to see...

Whether you want to plan your cinema trips or your Blu-ray purchases, we’ve rounded up a bunch of trailers for the films we think are worth looking out for (with an emphasis on system-shaking blockbusters).

Black Panther, Ready Player One, and Avengers: Infinity War are just some of the new releases coming to cinemas in 2018.

We'll be updating this page as new movie trailers are released. So, grab your popcorn...


Alexander Payne's latest film Downsizing is a high concept idea about a small subject.

The world is changing following the invention of a shrinking technology that allows people to be reduced to just four inches tall. Intended as a way of saving the environment, Matt Damon's Paul Safranek undergoes the procedure to get away from the woes of full-sized life.

It's an enjoyable comedy with a shrewd take on a number of social issues. Look out for Christoph Waltz as Dusan Mirkovic who steals every scene he's in.

Release date: 19th January 2018

Phantom Thread

Paul Thomas Anderson and Daniel Day-Lewis' previous collaboration was the fantastic There Will Be Blood, so we can hardly wait to see Phantom Thread.

Set in 1950s London, Day-Lewis plays Reynolds Woodcock, a renowned dressmaker who works with his sister Cyril (Lesley Manville). The pair are at the centre of British fashion, however Woodcock's life is disrupted when he meets Alma (Vicky Krieps), who soon becomes his muse and lover.

Can he focus on his work, or will love tear him apart? Phantom Thread is set to be Day-Lewis's final film before he enters into a second retirement. What a career he's had.

Release date: 2nd February 2018

The 15:17 To Paris

The story for Clint Eastwood's latest film is ripped from the pages of real life. The 15:17 To Paris recounts the tale of how a group of US soldiers discovered a terrorist plot on a Belgian high-speed train bound for Paris.

It eschews big stars, with the actual soldiers playing themselves. The film details their respective childhoods and friendship up to that pivotal moment.

Eastwood has had success with his last two films, who'd bet against him with this?

Release date: 8th February 2018

Maze Runner: The Death Cure

Delayed for a year after Dylan O'Brien sustained serious injuries on set, the latest in the Maze Runner series sees O'Brien's Thomas embark on his most dangerous mission yet.

He and his group of escaped 'Gladers' must break into the last city on earth and infiltrate a WCKD controller labyrinth, save their friends and find a cure for the deadly disease known as the 'Flare'.

The Maze Runner is a decent series that's improved with each outing, can The Death Cure end it on a high?

Release date: 9th February 2018

Black Panther

After the events of Civil War, T'Challa (Chadwick Boseman) returns to the technolgically advanced, yet reclusive, homeland of Wakanda, ready to inherit his throne.

But he's not the only one with eyes on it. Michael B. Jordan's Erik Killmonger challenges T'Challa, with Andy Serkis' Ulysses Klaue also looking to topple the new king.

It's Marvel Cinematic Universe's first film and, with a predominantly black cast and Creed director Ryan Coogler in the hot seat, it feels far different from previous MCU films.

Release date: 12th February 2018

Tomb Raider

Films based on video games have tended not to be good, so it's with a with a healthy dose of skepticism that we approach the Tomb Raider reboot.

It's alleviated somewhat by Alicia Vikander as Lara Croft, and a storyline based on the game that successfully reintroduced the character.

So while we're still waiting for an enjoyable video game film, we hope this is the one. It can't be worse than last year's Assassin's Creed, can it?

Release date: 16th March 2018

More after the break

Pacific Rim: Uprising

This belated follow-up to Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim sees John Boyega's Jake Pentecost, son of Idris Elba's Stacker Pentecost, take on the Jaeger mantle.

Del Toro dropped out for this film, with Steven S. DeKnight now sitting in the director's chair. Little can be gleaned from this promo teaser, but we're expecting the kaiju will make a return. Or will there be a new threat?

Release date: 23rd March 2018

Marvel's Jessica Jones

The first season of Jessica Jones was mostly good, apart from the poor pacing that afflicts all the Marvel Netflix series. Let's hope the second go-around remedies that for New York's most bedraggled private investigator.

Little is known about the plot, though we can assume it takes place in the aftermath of The Defenders. It sounds like David Tennant's Kilgrave may make an appearance or two (or three).

Release date: 8th March 2018

Ready Player One

Ernest Cline's sci-fi novel gets the big-screen treatment, courtesy of Steven Spielberg, in this eagerly-awaited virtual reality romp. 

The film focuses on Wade Owen Watts (Tye Sheridan), who escapes the daily grind by entering into the OASIS, a virtual reality game created by James Haliday (Mark Rylance).

Haliday has hidden his fortune within the OASIS - and his death prompts an almighty hunt for the riches. If this first trailer is anything to go by, we can expect a film chock-full of pop culture references.

Release date: 30th March 2018

The New Mutants

The X-Men universe is on a roll, with Legion, Logan and now The Gifted entertaining audiences, the X-Men series expands further with The New Mutants.

Described as a superhero horror film, The New Mutants features five young mutants coming to terms with their powers inside a secret facility. Can they escape and save themselves?

With the filmmakers citing Stephen King and haunted-house movies as touchstones, The New Mutants may boast as many shocks as it does thrills.

Release date: 11th April 2018


The larger-than-life Dwayne Johnson is up against it in Rampage, where he finds himself up against 20ft monsters.

Based on an 1980s videogame, Johnson plays Davis Okoye, a Primatologist who forms an unshakeable bond with a silverback gorilla called George.

However, when a rogue genetic experiment goes wrong it turns gentle George into a raging monster. He's not the only animal affected, with newly created apex predators tearing across the USA.

Clearly this goes way beyond the realms of believability, but who doesn't want to see The Rock face up against a giant crocodile?

Release date: 13th April 2018


Avengers: Infinity War

Marvel has been building up to Infinity War ever since the dust cleared from the New York attack in The Avengers.

It sees intergalactic despot Thanos (Josh Brolin) finally get off his floating chair and start cracking heads, as he attempts to unite all six of the Infinity Stones – artefacts that can disrupt the very fabric of reality.

With pretty much every superhero in the Marvel fold going up against this threat, who will survive? More importantly, what's going on with Thanos's massive chin?

Release date: 27th April 2018

Deadpool 2

The Merc with a Mouth goes off the rails with this truly strange teaser trailer.

Mimicking Bob Ross's art shows (look it up on YouTube or Netflix), this has barely anything to do with the film, other than being another trip into the fourth wall breaking mind of Ryan Reynold's Deadpool.

The actual film sees Josh Brolin and Zazie Beetz join the cast as Cable and Domino respectively. Look out for Hunt Of The Wilderpeople's Julian Dennison in an as yet unspecified role.

Release date: 1st June 2018

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

The Jurassic Park series was rejuvenated with Jurassic World, but if we're being honest, this is a series that's running on fumes a little.

Fallen Kingdom aims to put more petrol in the tank, as Owen (Chris Pratt) and Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) return to Isla Nublar after learning that a once dormant volcano is active and threatening to destroy the island.

Will the dinosaurs be rendered extinct again, or can Owen and Claire find a way to rescue the remaining ones?

Release date: 8th June 2018

Ocean's 8

The Ocean's team is back, but not in the same guise as before.

This time, there's only eight of them – and it's an all female cast led by Sandra Bullock. She plays Danny Ocean's (George Clooney) estranged sister Debbie, who attempts to pull of a heist at New York City's star-studded annual Met Gala. But first she needs a crew.

Will it manage to scale the heights of the first Ocean's film? Judging by the talent involved, this could be an entertaining caper.

Release date: 22nd June 2018

Sicario 2: Soldado

Dennis Villeneuve's Sicario was a fantastic thriller and if you're a fan you may be happy a sequel is on the way.

With the drugs war escalating to the point where cartels are trafficking terrorists across the US-Mexico border, federal agent Matt Graver (Josh Brolin) re-teams with Benicio Del Toro's mysterious Alejandro to put a stop to it.

With Villeneuve stepping away to make Blade Runner 2049 and much of the original crew moving on, can Soldado be as good as Sicario? We'll have to wait and see.

Release date: 29th June 2018

Alita: Battle Angel

Manga adaptation Battle Angel Alita was on James Cameron's wishlist before he made Avatar. Cameron remains onboard the project as producer, passing over the directorial reigns to Robert Rodriguez.

Alita is a tale of a cyborg who can't remember who she is or where she came from, but is determined to find the truth about her origin in a world that's unrelentingly harsh.

Though she looks like she's the recipient of a Snapchat filter, it stays true to the character. This could be a return to form for Rodriguez, who certainly needs it after the disposable Sin City 2.

Release date: 20th July 2018

Mortal Engines

Quite possibly the most bizarre idea for film in 2018, Mortal Engines sees cities surviving on a now desolate Earth by moving around on giant wheels and 'eating' up smaller towns to restock their resources.

Based on Philip Reeve's popular book series, it comes with a script written by Lord Of The Rings trio Fran Walsh, Phillipa Boyens and Peter Jackson.

If the film delivers on the images in the trailer, it's bound to be a crazy tale.

Release date: 14th December 2018
