As the long-awaited Avengers: Endgame is nearing its end, a realization of what’s next in your watch-list is now something to think about. To help you decide which movies to watch out for, we’ve put together a list of movies that we believe is worthy to fill the hole that the Endgame left behind. Though it is indeed a big shoe to fill, you might as well pick a good movie to fill that shoe, rather than picking one at random.
Here are the movies that we believe could give you the joy, thrill and excitement to help you get by from aftermath that is the Avengers: Endgame.
Cast: Ryan Reynolds, Justice Smith, Kathryn Newton
Director: Rob Letterman
If you’re an avid movie goer, you probably already know who Ryan Reynolds is. Deadpool himself stars as the voice of Detective Pikachu in this movie, which was based on a global phenomenon that is Pokémon.
Pokémon is a media franchise that started way back in 1996. It was initially created as a console game, but soon was adapted into comics and anime. The gaming franchise of Pokémon was a huge success, and was followed by the success of both adaptations mentioned above.
Now that we are capable of projecting impressive CGI animation and motion capture, the franchise thought it would be the right time to release a somewhat ‘live action’ adaptation. Since most of the characters in the Pokémon universe is fictional, it isn’t exactly a true ‘live action’.
You might also be interested that the film was directed by Rob Letterman, the same guy who directed ‘Shark Tale’, ‘Monsters vs. Aliens’, and ‘Goosebumps’. If you’re looking for a movie that’s cute, family-friendly, action-packed, and with a touch of mystery, Pokémon is the right movie for you.
Cast: Keanu Reeves, Halle Berry, Jerome Flynn, Ian McShane
Director: Chad Stahelski
The whole of John Wick series may not be for all audiences, but for those who are, this third installment is a must-see. It consists of the same main cast, and the same director from the previous two installments of John Wick.
Some might say it will probably be the same as the other two, but it shouldn’t stop you from seeing its intense story line and breathtaking action scenes. If you haven’t seen the training that Keanu Reeves had to endure for this movie, we suggest you take a peak and get a glimpse of how the movie has been prepared for.
We should warn you however, the movie wasn’t made for the Oscars or Golden Globe awards. It was made for fans that are looking for creative fight scenes, stunts, and for those who just wants to stare at the attractive and ageless face of Keanu.
Cast: Will Smith, Naomi Scott, Alan Tudyk
Director: Guy Ritchie
A live action adaptation to one of the most beloved Disney animated movies in the history of Disney films, Aladdin. The animated movie was released way back in 1992, starring Scott Winger and of course the legendary Robin Williams as the genie. It was a massive success, and now is returning in live action, in the hopes that it would again relive the magic for both kids and adults.
Despite of criticisms involving the casting of Will Smith taking on the genie’s part and people not amused with yet another Disney live action adaptation, a lot of the old movie’s fans were still enthusiastic about the upcoming movie. They even showed their love and support through various social media platforms. To be honest, the trailer looks awesome, and they even did the iconic song ‘A whole new world’, which sealed the deal for me and I’m guessing thousands more.
Seeing that the movie was directed by the same guy who directed ‘The Man from U.N.C.L.E.’ and ‘King Arthur: Legend of the Sword’, it is safe to assume that the guy knows his comedy, action, and story-telling.
Cast: Elizabeth Banks, David Denman, Matt Jones
Director: David Yarovesky
If you’re craving for that thrilling and suspenseful experiences, BrightBurn is a movie that you should put on your watch-list. It stars the veteran Elizabeth Banks and a relatively new movie director, David Yarovesky. Although the Yarovesky doesn’t have much to its name, he does have decade of experiences in the movie industry from being a director, an editor, writer, producer, and even as an actor.
The story of Bright Burn portrays the life of a child that came from another world, and is adopted by an average human couple. It turns out, the child has some super power abilities. Instead of becoming a super hero as most people would have expected and hoped for, what if he turns out to be something evil and more sinister?
Cast: Charles Dance, Vera Farmiga, Milli Bobby Brown, Ken Watanabe
Director: Michael Dougherty
Godzilla: King of the Monsters is the latest installment of the Godzilla franchise, and a sequel to the Godzilla movie that was released in 2014. The story revolves around monster titans that used to rule the earth, Mothra, Rodan, King Ghidorah, and of course Godzilla himself. Though it may have a little closeness with the prequel’s story line, this one has some added twist to which now the humanity must partner up with Godzilla to face off these monstrous titans.
Now that the CGI technology in movies has been massively improved, we can expect a lot of breathtaking and scenic monster-to-monster action with their manifestation and super power actualization.
