18. Meg (August 10)
It’s always great when an action movie featuring hard man Jason Statham drops. But throw a killer shark into the mix as well, and the excitement levels increase further. Entitled Meg, the film is set to make you afraid of the water in a way not seen since Jaws. It’s based on the 1997 novel of the same name and sees the no-nonsense actor descend into an abyss to stop the deadly animal.
17. Tomb Raider (March 16)
Any gamer would tell you that the 2013 video game reboot of the Tomb Raider franchise was an overwhelming success. So it’s certainly promising that the movie adaptation – slated for a 2018 release – is also set to focus on the origins of the Lara Croft character. And all signs point to this being a much more watchable affair than its Angelina Jolie-fronted predecessors.
16. The Nun (July 13)
Many would agree that The Conjuring is one of the scariest movies in recent memory. So we’ve got high expectations for a new spin-off due for release in 2018, entitled The Nun. It will focus on the terrifying demon seen in the second installment of the series and will be directed by Corin Hardy.
