This year, a lot of movie goers and fans got disappointed with so many Box office flops like Power Rangers, Life, Ghost In The Shell, Baywatch and even Guy Ritchie‘s King Arthur: Legend of the Sword. These big budget movies failed to impress the audience and some even couldn’t earn back their cost. There are still a number of good movies slated to come out this year like Annabelle: Creation, IT, Justice League and Star Wars: The Last Jedi so you can say that 2017 hasn’t been a complete disappointment. But 2018 on the other hand, is already looking really impressive and is lined up with some of the most-anticipated movie sequels (PLOTS EXPLAINED) that you just can’t afford to miss.
