It's never too early to look at the year ahead in movies. The public's thirst is unquenchable for these types of things so we're getting more insider info than ever before.

Of course, we haven't seen any of these movies yet but it's not hard to predict what'll be popular. Sequels tend to block out the sun box office-wise and 2019 is full of them. 

Monster franchises like Star Wars, X-Men, and the Marvel Cinematic Universe will all release new movies next year. Some (Marvel) will even release more than one. They'll rule the box office, but they're not alone. Disney has a bunch of other Pixar (Toy Story 4) and live-action (The Lion King) blockbusters for everyone to obsess over.

There are plenty of other ways to predict an upcoming film's popularity. Huge stars are great indicators. Huge directors less so, but some can't be denied. M. Night Shyamalan is a guy everyone is interested in and he's not only releasing a movie, he's releasing a sequel (Glass)! So watch out for him to have a big year. Who else? What else?
