2019 is a Huge Year for Warner Bros. - Here's Whyby 👨‍💻 Graham Pierrepoint

While you may think that Disney holds all the cards when it comes to dominating the box office, you may be pleasantly surprised to learn that there are more than a few studios still willing to put up a fight. While Universal may not have gotten their proposed cinematic universe off to a great start with their critical flop in The Mummy, Warner Bros are eyeing up new ways to move into second place – and there are plenty of big movies they’re monopolizing upon for the years ahead.

WB will lead with a series of huge sequels for 2019, with both Godzilla and Lego Movie 2 set to arrive early on in the year to try and capitalize on critical and financial success in previous years. That’s not all – they’ll be looking to make bank on Stephen King’s It – now the highest-grossing horror movie of all time – with a second chapter due in the fall. They’re also unveiling Wonder Woman 2 late in the year – with the hope that Gal Gadot will return as Diana Prince – following a surprise summer success in her origin story and despite a damp squib having flopped onto our screens in Justice League.

WB has secured the rights to both Shaft and The Six Billion Dollar Man, meaning that 2019 will be another year crammed with reboots and re-imaginings – though it will remain to be seen whether or not they will buck the trend and make a huge critical impression as well as a financial splash. Bizarrely, we’ll even get the chance to enjoy the Minecraft movie in 2019 – a springtime release sees the popular open-world simulation take to the big screen, with the studio likely hoping that mania surrounding the game online continues to persist.

It’s also thought that the studio has full international distribution rights for James Bond – meaning that 007’s next adventure (whether or not Daniel Craig is involved, and to be honest, we’ve rather lost track) will be brought to you by WB. This makes for what may be a fairly fruitful 2019 – though as this year’s statistics show, with over $5 billion at the box office due even before Star Wars hits cinemas, Disney will continue to be a force to be reckoned with (no pun intended) - there is even talk of Disney planning to take over 21st Century Fox. The old Bugs v Mickey battle begins again – and this time, to the victor goes the silver screen.
